Stuff Picks: Flagships with a new coat of paint

We've also found the next fidget device you can't resist, and a gaming headset to trash talk through

Coral Blue Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ (from S$1148)

The Coral Blue version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 released similarly later than the original bunch, and it became a huge hit. For good reason, because it’s simply mesmerising and a fresh colour we don’t usually see on phones.

Samsung’s really nailed it when it comes to interesting colours, from Arctic Silver to Orchid Grey that may as well start off its own “dress” debate (grey or purple). It’s certainly a good-looking collection.

Everything else remains the same; you still get the Galaxy S8’s beautiful bezzle-less Infinity display that makes it by far the best-looking phone on the market – even better than the iPhone 8 leaks. It has no home-screen buttons and instead uses force-touch, which is a real unsung hero as it means you dom'y have to swipe up to access the navigation bar, you simply hard-press the centre to return to the home-screen. Genius.

The Coral Blue Galaxy S8 and S8+ are available today at a suggested retail price of S$1148 and S$1298 respectively, at all major telcos, Samsung retailers and Lazada.  

Bronze Pink Sony Xperia XZ Premium (S$1098)

Blue not quite your thing? How about another exquisite colour, Bronze Pink. You’ll truly stand out with this one.

The Bronze Pink XZ Premium joins Sony’s own line of interesting colours, including Deep Sea Black and Luminous Chrome which really does come in handy as a mirror.

This version packs the same jaw-dropping specs; it houses the world’s first 4K display on a smartphone that takes ridiculously crisp 4K videos. It also has a 960fps slow-mo camera, which really makes a difference.

The beautiful Bronze Pink variant will be rolling out in stores progressively starting today.
