The Samsung Galaxy S series has held the reigns in the Android market for almost a decade. However, last year the internet was plagued with videos and articles dissing the battery in Samsung Galaxy S7 as there were reported cases of the phone catching fire. The phone making company was in the red as people literally stopped buying the S7.

But things have changed, and they have succeeded in redeeming themselves with their new flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8/S20. Hopefully, there will be no more explosions in pockets or on planes!

Galaxy S8 is the best phone in 2017. It comes in two different sizes; the S8 has a 5.8 inch screen whereas the S8 Plus features a 6.2 inch screen, similar to the previous S7 models.

Both the models of S8/S20 will sport a dual-edged curved display with thinner bezels, giving us a screen to body ratio of 90 percent. This means better multimedia experience!

Not keyed up yet? Well, there’s more!

The phone has also scrapped the iconic home button, introduced a virtual assistant called Bixby, features a fingerprint scanner on the rear, and might even have an eye scanner! How fancy is that? Furthermore, significant improvements have been made to its camera, processing speed, and battery.

About Music Management on your Samsung Galaxy S8/S20

Transferring hundreds of songs to your PC or importing them to your phone manually is obviously not efficacious. Especially, if you have a gigantic playlist like many music lovers, you might feel the need to have a software that would help you manage and organize all of your music on Galaxy S8/S20.

Also, some people are really particular about their music library and like their files to be organized in appropriate folders. If you’re one of them, we have the perfect solution for you!

While there are plenty of media managers to choose from, Dr.Fone beats them all. There is iTunes of course, but it's optimized for only Apple products and doesn’t offer some of the most useful features that Dr.Fone has.

This software enables you to transfer your music, photos, videos, contacts, messages, and apps to your PC across platforms. It also has a “files” tab which allows you to browse through the files on your Galaxy S8/S20, almost like a flash drive.

Music lovers can also explore new music and even download it if they wish. It also features additional functions such as backing up data on your phone, create gifs using multiple photos or videos, rooting your Galaxy S8/S20. All of this and more, in just one single software!
