It was around 15mm at it's thickest. But it's shape and build quality made it easier to hold and grip. If the S8 will have that kind of sensor, the bump will be so big, they just might as well add a xenon flash.
Five Star, 15 Mar 2017Still too big for FFS and a camera.Better than non (pixel iphone huawei htc all have big bezel, only huawei htc justify with leica setup and htc boom sound) sony front facer and rear cam is big

"Samsung Galaxy S8 bundle will feature AKG earphones"
samsung bought a harman kardon, so they should make a galaxy s8 with harman kardon stereo speakers. to make a perfect smartphone.
If the battery size is staying the same as the 14nm SOC powered S7 but the S8 is using a 10nm SOC, guess what should happen to power consumption and thus battery Life?
Let's hope Samsung will do right with the S8. I actually dig its new UI.
S3mm, 15 Mar 2017Massive functional bezel... Nit useless bezel for show or cosmetic small bezelStill too big for FFS and a camera.
Yacks, looks more horrible than some Chinese phones now if soon they remove the app drawer they are stupid.
I had a S2, S3, S4, Note 4 and S7 edge and none of them had any screen burn. I rather have a thinner more battery efficient screen than LCD.
Anyways you should point out the bad points of amoled to apple, huawei who are all going Amoled in their premium devices :)

Just because something else does or might be a little ahead????? That's not logical at all.
The 20 core mali g71 should provide awesome graphics. As should the Adreno 540. And both should be able to sustain performance pretty well and sip less overall energy.
All with great audio processing, great displays, and much improved vr.
And the A10 has its own decent amount of throttling.
So why can't they have great gaming performance?
No matter how hard I try, I can't like the curved edge design. the reflection from lamps beside the holder looks incredibly stupid. It's like a line of lamp glows on the side of your phone. yuck.
if it has quickcharge 4.0 on the SD835, and charges faster than OP3T i might be interested in getting S8

It feels like premium and unique compared to the rest out there, it feels like a status que and worth as more what its price tag suggested. However it seems like more than that because it still lacks some function that you may expected. But still worth the money if you have it and if that's your point of view or looking for your needs.
