Out of this World with Samsung

    This post was created in partnership with Samsung.

    When it comes to staying connected on the go, I know a thing or two. Whether I am covering the latest in fall fashion trends, at the grocery store shopping for my next recipe post, or needing to snap a selfie with a friend, it’s all about being mobile.

    I’m working with the amazing team at Samsung to showcase their brand new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphone and show how it drives my tech-heavy life and helps keeps my schedule on track – from snapping pictures to posting on Instagram. Samsung has recently opened an amazing pop-up Studio in Dallas and many other cities in the US, and I had the chance to experience it first hand. The Studio is amazing, and I had so much fun testing out amazing demos on the Galaxy S8 itself and experiencing intensely fun interactions with the best virtual reality experience in the industry.

    To accompany me to the Studio, I brought along my new Samsung Galaxy S8+! This new smartphone is so awesome and I love that Samsung is all about advancing the world of mobile technology in an original way. My Galaxy S8+ can take beautiful photos and help me out even after being in up to 5 ft. of water for up to 30 minutes. How cool is that?

    Speaking of photos, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has a front-facing camera with Smart Auto Focus, which tracks every face in frame so all my shots stay sharp and clear, even when I’m on the go. It’s so awesome that I can capture the best photo possible – regardless of light, focus or motion. Another fun feature of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is the iris scanning for enhanced and defense-grade security that stands guard around the clock. You can open your phone using just your eyes – this device is so futuristic!

    Another favorite feature is the amazing Infinity screen, which literally stretches edge-to-edge on the phone. This makes editing images on the go so easy thanks to the large, crisp display, not to mention the ability to have two apps open at once on the screen to feed my need for multi-tasking.

    Be sure to go and experience the limited-time run of this super fun Samsung Studio Pop-Up at Stonebriar Centre in Dallas to see firsthand just how forward thinking this new smartphone truly is.
