Every time a new phone is launched, a number of tech vloggers share their thoughts on the device. This time around, with the arrival of the S8 and S8+, vloggers have gone one step further, putting the durability of the phone to the ultimate test.

All eyes have been on Samsung since the exploding Note 7 debacle of last year. The company has stated numerous times that it has enhanced the device security by establishing an 8-step safety programme for the battery. 

Looking to see what the S8 is made of, literally and figuratively, the guys behind the 'What's Inside?' YouTube channel took a saw to the new phone. 

The pair continued to push and prod the device and in what is surely good news for Samsung, the device does not explode.

The S8 arrived into Irish stores today. We managed to get our hands on an S8 ahead of the launch and were impressed.

 

Internally there's an Octa-core (2.3GHz Quad + 1.7GHz Quad), 64 bit, 10 nm processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which can be increased with the use of a microSD card. The S8 has a 3,000mAh battery, while the S8+ has a  3,500 mAh battery.
