Samsung Galaxy S8, launched in March 2018, comes in two options; the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a 5.8-inch screen and a slightly larger Samsung Galaxy S8+ that features a 6.2-inch screen. Both of the smartphones have characteristics of Infinity Display from Samsung with a display ratio of 18.5:9.
The Display on both smartphones offers a beautiful viewing experience, but many users face touchscreen problems with S8 and S8+. Some users say that they push hard on the screen to make it perform. In contrast, dragging down the notification bar from the top corner is a strenuous process for a few others. Some also complain that the screen abruptly becomes unresponsive.
