Breaking news: Digitimes: Samsung and LG aim to reduce their reliance on foreign organic material producers!
I knew that Samsung and Lg oled are just quantity, not quality. If you want proof, here is the website: http://www.oled-info.com/digit...al-producers
What happened to your writing, GSMA? I've been a fan for over a decade, and this is the first month I'm so disappointed, as it seems like you're writing what people want to hear.
First of all, thanks to 10nm the SD835 accounts for about 30% less battery usage for the phone, according to Qualcomm labs tours. That and much higher integer performance was the main purpose of going 10nm and A73 vs Kryo. Kryo was a fp processor but was much weaker at integer. Benches might not show that as they test both but fp tasks for the CPU are very rare and Qualcomm simply forecasted wrongly with their Kryo cores, thus the change to semi-stock cores, and thus the SD835 will perform much better irl and use significantly less power than SD821.
The same camera hardware? Are you kidding? You just wrote an article about the S8 using a brand new sensor! The fact that aperture is the same and max count is the same has completely nothing to do with the hardware being the same. With that logic I can say that my one inch sensor camera has the same hardware as my Xperia Z1 or DSLe camera, as they share the same mpx counts and similar apertures when I set them that way.
Guys, GSMA, please don't go that way. You were some of the best tech journalists. I know there are many Samsung haters on this site, but please don't skew the facts to please them. Write things as they are.

For instance, if the total S7 series has sold 15 million units (Note: i don't know the real number, it's just a guess), 5 million units sold were flat-screened ones. So, if you think 5 million units are too little to care about, then you need to get your head examined.

Samsung tends to save some surprise at their unpacked events. Case in point with the S5. Regardless of all the S5 leaks, MWC was able tor reveal something new...the heart rate sensor.
hunk0429, 27 Mar 2017the icons reminds me of the old Nokia Asha series... To HUNK0429:
Come to think of it you are absolutely correct. I just double checked the Ashas and to be honest, the Asha icons look smoother but I agree, the S8 icons are reminiscent of the Asha ones. I hope these icons is one leak that doesn't pan out to be true.

I wouldn't say that it's pointless to watch the event because as much as the S5 leaked, there was at least one surprise when it was revealed...quoted from GSMArena "while the fingerprint scanner was no surprise, the heart rate monitor certainly is."

Oops, 27 Mar 2017So basically the S7 will still be a better phone in most respects.yes
Oops, 27 Mar 2017So basically the S7 will still be a better phone in most respects.well said . ill go for s7 or s7 edge the size of s8 is insane (-_-) that will not be suit on my pocket.. its to large for a phone
"[The S8 bezels are] not quite a match for the Xiaomi Mi Mix, but it could beat the LG G6 in bezel minimalism".
Umm, according to GSMA, both S8 (84.4%) and S8+ (88.6%) will have better screen-to-body ratio than the superb Mi Mix (83.6%, not 91.3% as initially claimed & then retracted by Xiaomi).
And speaking of the G6, I don't find it's 78.6% ratio very impressive (must be the side bezels) because 2013's LG G2 had a 75.9% ratio despite being released 4 years ago and having a conventional 16:9 ratio (that doesn't try to reduce bezels just for the sake of it). Now THAT was impressive.
ithehappy, 27 Mar 2017I know that it will run TouchWiz and that reason is enough for me to consider one.It's not called TouchWiz anymore ever since the Note7 debuted Grace UX. But who knows maybe the S8's UX will be called something else.....
Wow that UI sucks, looks like a terrible iOS-like Android skin from Huawei. Well, what can we say? Even GraceUX and the old TouchWiz looks childish
