Low ram, relatively low battery, 4k for no reason at all, gargantuan despite the small screen and relatively small battery. Engineering wise it's 2-3 years in the past (how did they manage to put so little hardware in so much space?)
design wise the s8 is impressive. but to all the people who think this is game changing don't forget that japanese phones did bezeless displays first and the xiomi mix is much more impressive than this.
Aside from that, the XZ premium is a superior phone in almost every way. Design wise its whether you prefer bezeless display or dual facing speakers.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Choice of quality. Very true.Quality first as always.
ashiq, 30 Mar 2017What about 1000fps camera no one telling aboutIt doesn't have it,seems like SONY didn't help Samsung with that
wait, is that LG G6 curved edition? or Huawei honor magic? or maybe another mate 9 version? or new iphone?
Someone Else, 30 Mar 2017?????? What's there to be 'lol' about?
You just stated the height and not the width of the ... moreExactly...it is narrower, not smaller. 148.9 mm = 148.9 mm
It's same as if you said that 75 kg 180 cm man is smaller than 85 kg 180 cm man.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Are you lying to yourself? bezel-less has worse handling than buzels phones.Things that hardly fit in my pocket, with sharp edges are harder to use. A smaller devices is always easier to handle.
There was no way to use Xperia ultra one handed even for the basest things (the thing would fall out of my hand). I use Mi mix (same size of display) one handed all the time.
yeah, making a device extremely big (as big bezels do) makes a device harder to use.
Soap, 30 Mar 2017So, 148.9 mm of S8 is smaller than 148.9 mm of G6? LOL?????? What's there to be 'lol' about?
You just stated the height and not the width of the phone. I said the Galaxy S8 is a little bit smaller than the LG G6, which is true. Even though it have the same height, the Galaxy S8 is about 4 mm narrower. ( 68.1 mm vs 71.9 mm). And even though the difference is minimal, it does shows that the GS8 a little bit smaller than the LG G6.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Are you lying to yourself? bezel-less has worse handling than buzels phones.Phones with bezel is fine, but certain flagships with big bezel are no good, even though they have nice camera...
And now every phone look oldfashin ! Wery good job samsung , love it !!!
Fábio , 29 Mar 2017Basically, all the rumors become real Yes, because the 'rumours' were modest. No wild 256 GB ROM claims or crazy stuff about 8 GB RAM or 4K display, etc.
We don't want an 18.5/9 bezelless display with rounded corners and mono speaker under the phone, which is crappy for photo and video watching... We want an bezelless 16/9 display with front stereo speakers, that's simply perfect!
MK, 30 Mar 2017Another highly overrated and possibly over priced phone from Samsung. I see no main improvemen... moreXZ has many of the same problems as this phone.
Upgrades gimmicky things (who needs 4k on a phone) and keeps bad things (only 4GB of ram means bye bye ram caching, no flagship worthy; big bezels means gargantuan dimensions, means bad handling)
Tann Hauser, 30 Mar 2017You are on spot only about splitscreen multitasking. But Most movies are not shot in that asp... moreI like unconventional things (*hate* bezels) and bought Mi Mix. Much better phone than this. 50% more battery, no ugly black side bars (only tiny ones), very pocketable despite the gargantuan screen.
It's terrible to recommend either Sony or Samsung in this day and age. They both keep back technological development. These companies should follow blackberry and ericsson and old Nokia to obscurity.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017I agree bixby is a gimmick, but you're just ludicrously wrong about ai and the importance of s... moreIncidentally the latest development in AI happened *because* of the bigger numbers.
Whom would have thunk? A device based in calculations actually becomes more useful when more calculations are done.
BTW AI on small devices is a gimmick *exactly because how incredibly weak they still are. Keep hardware development and you will NEVER see useful AI on phones.
Bit like Samsung. On one hand they only add 10% performance and keep the same ram, on the other they tout a revolutionary new AI. It won't work *because* they kept the phone the same internally (basically).
They use AI as a gimmick that's why it is a gimmick on S8. Real AI is very useful and will change the world, already does...
