Galaxy S8 costs Samsung $307.50 to build

It appears that you might be paying $400 more for the new Galaxy S8, but did you know that it costs more to build than other phones from major competitors, which makes it the most expensive phone to build to date.

According to an estimate released by IHS Markit, the Galaxy S8 costs Samsung $307.50 to build, more than Samsung’s previous devices —the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge— which reportedly costs $255.10 and $271.20 to make.

This Galaxy S8 vs. iPhone 7 drop test is brutal

Yes Nigerians reading this you heard me right, someone took $1600 to buy an Iphone 7 red and the Samsung Galaxy S8, only to just completely destroy it!  With $1600 i could pay an entire village school fees for like 10 years. The youtuber (EverythingApplePro) that thought of this cool monstrosity was not even paid by the companies in question, but thankfully he got youtube to pay him and he did it before youtube adverts market share began to slide into oblivion.

It’s a little painful to watch two brand-new phones get tortured, but it’s all worth it. While the Galaxy S8’s glass back is destroyed almost instantly (as expected), the larger and longer bezel-less “infinity display” is definitely more durable than the iPhone 7’s screen, even when dropped from a height of 25 feet.

Both screens end up cracked and damaged in all places, but in the end, the Galaxy S8’s screen is considerably less shattered, which is quite impressive.
