Samsung comes with various new ways to interact with and experience a phone such as Galaxy S8. Some mobile users prefer a desktop-like experience to fully utilize their phones, while others love to conveniently operate their phone and make things as easy as possible. Even people with vision problems or who have difficulties reading small fonts can actually use a special magnifier window and significantly improve their experience.

To ensure the Galaxy S8 is as easy to use as possible, Samsung included several unique technical solutions that allow for more detailed control over the phone. A built-in magnifying glass conveniently allows users to read small font, which is ideal for those with vision difficulties.
