Whether it's taking photos of precious first moments, keeping kiddies quiet on car journeys or grabbing a quick catch up with a friend, a decent mobile phone is any mum's must-have. But in these days of busy multi-tasking, not all phone are created equal! So when we caught sight of the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ here at HELLO!, we got quite excited. Not only does Samsung's latest offering look stunning, (the end-to-end screen is fabulously futuristic), but its inbuilt voice activated search gadget 'Bixby' is so clever, understanding text, talk and taps, that it's like having your very own personal assistant in your pocket - and what mum couldn't do with one of those!
Here's how the new Samsung Galazy S8 and S8+ could transform your life...
Amazing autofocus technology - so you'll never miss a fleeting, but ever so important, family moment.
Iris scanner technology means sticky fingers can't access the internet when you're not there to keep an eye on things, and moreover your personal videos and photographs are safer than ever before.
Amazing Kids Mode and clever parental controls guarantee that your children are safe whenever they're connected and you can even set your own limits to ensure that they can only access the best, and most educational, apps and games.
Water resistant to 1.5 meters! So an accidental dip, even into the bath tub, isn't a total catastrophe...
Wireless charging capabilities mean tripping hazards are completely removed, and that your phone can be charged well out of harm's way.
The huge (expandable) memory means that if you want to keep more photos, videos or apps than your whapping 64 gb inbuilt memory allows, you can simply add a memory card and carry on snapping.
Great battery life, so even if the kids have been chasing Pokemon around the park all day, you'll still be able to check those important emails on the way home.
And finally, it's easy to hold in one hand so your other hand is free to restrain children, or drink a cocktail, depending on what you feel like!
