To be honest, VR on phones it´s a Gimmick, they don't show the appropriate performance without mention that its a battery hog, you´ll run out of battery with a few minutes of VR, besides VR shows to be more focused on pc and consoles rather than phones... Just a humble opinion.. and c´mon UHD quality on a tiny screen it´s simply useless

It's not the best for VR but better than any other phones. Just use it and compare other best like lphone 6s. S8 UHD with gearVR will be there with perfect VR experience...
SVK, 20 Jun 2016Or saying S8 will ditch Android for their own Tizen OS :)I'd love to see what would happen next
Front facing Speakers. Please! Don't let apple beat you on that. And capacitive home button.

For normal usage where VR isn't being used, i think 1440p screens are the sweet spot.

So, your tantrum is not working even if you write a very long essay about it. This is the era of VR headset. We need it. Why people so surprise everytime Samsung increase the screen density? Don't you people read about Samsung and their end goal in screen technology? They aiming for the 11K display! By 2017, they will show their 8K display. So, stop being like a primitive ape and get surprised with every new tech in they flaunt. Samsung is laughing at all your comments. Stuff that you should had known years ago.
Anyone who is using a VR headset will understand why it's to be OK to use UHD display in mobile phones..... For normal usage FHD display is enough.. For reference use an galaxy S7 with gearVR and experience yourself what I am talking about. Word of advice...... Never try to use an iPhone 6S plus in a VR headset. Believe me... It's a disaster for someone who used S7 with gearVR. For the rest of the people...... Stop commenting about the things you don't know..... Please stop..... For God sake......

Djeez, can't they just STOP with those ridiculous resolutions for god's sake!
How can we ever get MORE than a day usage out on these bloody CELLPHONES if these morons keep increasing the screen density. This is fine for big screen TV's but completely wasted on 5,x" devices!!!
Somsong, I'd rather have IR-blaster back than yet another increase in pixels :-(
Which I don't even see! Don't these morons get it, that when we get older our eyesight gets WORSE not better... giving us more pixels at such a small surface won't do squat!
Another improvement would be to get rid of the wide bottom bezel - as shown in the picture of the article.
People keep bitching about Samsung. But it is still the global leader when it comes to smart phones. The S6 was awesome, the S7 is probably gonna beat the other phones that come out next year as well. So Samsung has gotta come up with something ryt. And They r doin it better than the rest of the phone industry.
First Huawei P9 copied HTC M8 for dual camera, now even idiotic Samsung try to copy HTC. Stupid dump company.
ZTE, Huawei and Lenovo already made dual camera.. Samsung and Apple seems to be a step behind. please make a major improvement..
