What's new about the Samsung Galaxy S8? Oh, you know, just the curved screen and tall, slim, nearly bezel-less body.

Published:Caption:Photo:Josh Miller/CNET

This is the first Galaxy S phone (that isn't an Edge or a Note) to have that curved screen.

When the lock screen dims, you'll get the always-on display.

It feels light and smooth in the hand, and a little droppable.

The S8 has a 5.8-inch display; the Galaxy S8 Plus, right, has a 6.2-inch screen.

It also does away with the physical home button. (You're looking at the lock screen, by the way.)

Weirdly, the fingerprint reader moves to the back, off-center and really close to the camera lens. Too close for my liking.

The on-screen home button vibrates when you press it.

Samsung wedges more screen into a smaller body.

Both S8 and S8 Plus have the edge display found on Note and Edge phones.

It's the second Samsung phone to have a USB-C charger.

In lieu of the fingerprint reader, you can use the iris scanner.

But you have to hold the phone level, and better lift those shades.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 rainbow: midnight black, arctic silver, orchid gray, coral blue and maple gold.

You can dip it in water without fear.

That is, for up to 3 feet and 30 minutes.

Published:Caption:Photo:Josh Miller/CNET

It supports wireless charging, too. (And here's a new dock.)

The 12-megapixel camera app gets a refreshed look.

Published:Caption:Photo:Josh Miller/CNET

Filters and decorations are front and center.

The Bixby assistant makes its debut (more later).

Published:Caption:Photo:Joshua Goldman/CNET

It works alongside Google Assistant and other features like Google Now.

Published:Caption:Photo:Sarah Tew/CNET

It still has the Always-On display.

Enjoy some more shots.

Bixby Home can show you appointments, headlines, your step count and so on. It can learn your habits and predict what you may want to do.

You can use Bixby Vision to scan wine...

... for more information.

Or a business card to extract data (the front side actually works better).

It can help you shop for an item like a book.

Published:Caption:Photo:Josh Miller/CNET

You can also translate text into over 50 languages.

If you want to use your S8 like a computer, you can buy the Samsung DeX dock.

Published:Caption:Photo:Josh Miller/CNET

You'll need the dock, a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse to access all the apps, photos and videos on your phone.
