Is crashed by last year's A10 in single core and only barely wins in multicore and gpu. Those are just facts, you keep denying them at our peril.
jesse.clark, 02 Apr 2017Really I am tired now, I can't explain to someone who don't know the taste of its heavenly exp... moreAgain everything you say have been surpassed. 5.8, 18.5:9 screen with dinky battery in a 150 gram body is nothing. 6.4, 17:9 with a power battery in a 200 gram body is much more impressive, especially given that it came 6 months ago.
My point is that S8 is unimpressive and old looking, old specs. It's nothing special. Every last part of it is beaten by competitors. Keep praising Samsung despite being such a failure and you'd see even more fail products from her. Be critical of her low specs and you must start getting old Samsung back, the one that crashed all competitors with each of her releases. If the computer evolution stops is because of you praising bad products.
HenockSandesh, 02 Apr 2017Keep using Mi Max... You'll get the problems soon enough... The Mi Max i had lots of problems ... moreWhat part of having owned S7 edge don't you understand? Also that youtube review showed 9 apps before reloading, I observed 6-7 apps because I make heavier use.
Also Mi max is a mid ranger, I own the Mi Mix which is high end. Never heard of any Mi batteries exploding, heard of many Note 7s exploding. This is the most illogical argument I've ever heard. Mi Mix is high quality, Xiaomi didn't cut corners, from the moment you touch it to the moment that you use it it's high end through and through.
I get 7-8 screen on time with S7 edge I was getting 5 hours *if* I was lucky. Battery life is day and night. Don't trust the battery test over here, it tests way too much phone call time and standby time, modern phones are mostly used with screens on, so Screen on time is a much more accurate metric.
Just use both phones and *then* tell me if you can return to S7 edge, don't blindly trust the reviews. Remember Samsung and Apple have the most money, obviously their products get the greatest push, doesn't mean they are the best. *Always* look at the specs , they are not the best judge, but much better than most reviews as they are "there" no matter the use case.
Samsung became the "monster" it presently is (low specs, high, high prices) *because of* apologists like you. Free markets cannot work if people stop supporting quality and buy whatever is marketed. Marketing basically goes against free enterprising, so beware of it.
Official Samsung price for S8 in my country is 925$ and S8 Plus is 1075$. I bought perfectly good OP3T for 440$ and for the price difference I'll go to France for week. 1000 bucks for a regular phone? Are you mad? If it a fashion statement just buy a Vertu.
Is it's expensive but so was the S6 S7 but S8 is £689 which it's bad to be honest look what you get for the price same could be said for the iPhones and look at LG G6 I think that's a it pricey for you DONT GET!! so it's not all Samsung
samsung --we have used -dect- cellular- specs tops - prices high -- but s8 n 8+ PRICES SKYHIGH..especially s7note disaster .. samsung have serious political problems in s korea --in news ..samsung is s korea main industry ..SEEMS S KOREA INTERNAL DIRTY POLITICS shall destroy samsung .. thats shocking dangerous ..we are very saddened ..
tomorrow we pre-order s8+ ..
Your pool about G6 show that it is not so pricey and it have only 32GB and S8 is pricey with extra 32GB (64GB) ??!

Xiomi doesn't have best bts ratio as it's a brick. 210g phone? I'm not crazy. Having a 5.8 inch display in a compact 150g body is how computers evolved from occupying a large room in the beginning to get into palm of users. It gives you military grade security with the award winning Knox with option to use two accounts for each app, which is a stand alone feature in its own to make it the best smartphone. What else? I can't count everything but galaxy is the most amazing thing ever happened to smartphones. Well Google doesn't have a better camera and apple doesn't have a better soc. Not anymore though. Galaxy S8 is unmatched and has no real rival until you are blind and just against every successful thing in the world.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2017It happens to everyone. S7 Edge reloads after 6-7 apps. Another example: https://www.youtube.c... moreKeep using Mi Max... You'll get the problems soon enough... The Mi Max i had lots of problems and it also broke in the end.. And the MiUi is so kiddish! Nothing special. Android update is more important, it gives so many features, thats why many apps had problems in Xiaomi phones.
And No, s7 does not reload apps like that. You're seeing the stupid fake reviews on youtube, but i have the phone and i can see it! My S7 edge is faster or equal than any other phone except iPhone. Only in background apps, s7 edge reloads few games! But till now it never closed a single app, i keep like 20 apps... You should be stupid to think it cant handle 6-7 apps... Its a flagship phone and its Samsung! Samsung makes most of the hardware so the firmware will be the most strongest in the market just after iPhone giving its maximum performance!
And s7 edge has one of the best battery! Xiaomi suck in battery life! No matter how much it has, after a while it drains very quickly. And one of my Xiaomi phone's battery swelled up after 5 months of use and that gave a bump in the back of the phone!
No matter how much battery or anything it has, firmware and optimization is most important. And only Samsung and iPhone can deliver that! Thats why iPhone can do way better in multi-tasking even if it has 1 or 2GB RAM! Only problem for Samsung is that they don't own Android, that why they use TouchWiz on top of Android so that they can give as much connection as possible between hardware and software!
jesse.clark, 02 Apr 2017I'm not a fanboy but I want the latest and greatest. Galaxy S8 is unmatched, nothing better is... moreWeird I thought oneplus has more Ram, Google has better camera and better software, Xiaomi has better bts ratio and much bigger battery, Sony has better resolution , apple has better soc ... In pretty much everything is outmatched. It's weird to hear -now- that S8 is unmatched (in what exactly? I just posted facts, specs are facts not opinions)
Dodge, 02 Apr 2017Yes, i have always had samsung phones. Waited for the Galaxy s8,and its too expensive.
Now th... moreWait for Mi Mix 2. Much better phone, only problem was the camera. W the new Mi mix they promised to fix the camera. If they did that, then definitely wait for it.
You get: much better camera
Bigger screen for the same footprint (better bts ratio)
Under the screen fingertip
better support (weekly udates that never cease for years and years)
Yes, i have always had samsung phones. Waited for the Galaxy s8,and its too expensive.
Now thinking about another product.
Its out priced for the average user.
Yeah Last year they at least included free GearVR with all preorders, this year quiet.
Zero-X.1007, 02 Apr 2017I just don't get one thing when Apple keeps its prices high after removing basic features eve... moreThey don't provide good features. Old android meant best specs in everything. Now they keep back in ram (the Chinese give more ram) , soc (Ax are light years ahead, Qualcomm just gave up the arm's race), ergonomy (either too big beels or too tall screen), battery ...
They cut corners left and right . Just look at old Samsung, her phones were chock full with everything that was best, nowadays the pick and choose, they're not real flagship material.
HenockSandesh, 02 Apr 2017You're S7 is must be fake... Till now wes have never reloaded! Even if i keep big games open..... moreIt happens to everyone. S7 Edge reloads after 6-7 apps. Another example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otwED6s3rCQ
It's a slow experience compared to 6GB phones , a definite downgrade.
I sold it for 500 Euros (bought it 750) and then gave another 140 and bought the Mi mix. Best move I've ever done. My battery now *literally* lasts twice as long, get weekly updates, much better phone to look at. Only problem (w Mi Mix) is the camera but I keep my personal camera with me most of the times, so it's hardly a problem (still I would love if they were to fix it in the future).
Even if it was the battery's fault, no reason to put only 3500 on S8 edge+ (Mi mix with similar bezeless and slim design has 4400 mah, despite the similar footprint too). That tells me that it was partly their fault too, and if it wasn't it is still a design failure to push such a small battery in such a big body.
literally no problem with antennas. I use two sim cards, both have almost perfect signal in most places inside the city and very serviceable signal outside. I saw no difference compared to S7 edge.
Putting them side by side you wouldn't know that those both are phones from 2016 . Mi Mix feels and looks much more futuristic.
Lastly about Miui , Miui version is more relevant than android version in Mi phones. You can compare two phone running the same miui version and irregardless of the Android version they would both look and run almost the same. Android makes much smaller underlying changes (that benefit the user) anyway. For example I much prefer that the newest miui is not nougat place because I literally get all the same goodies + xposed. Also miui has most of the same optimizations that Google adds anyway, so you had "doze" years ago in mi phones ... so it is not as if you lose features.
its not 930euro (£759) for the s8 it is for the s8plus, while it is still a lot of money its just the way smartphones are heading, a start up company or a company not in the western hemisphere can produce cheap models but for example the Huawei p10 retails in the uk for £679 which is only £80 less, yet the huawei has no iris recognition, no snapdragon, only 5.5" display vs 6.2", standard flat 2k display and a raft of other missing features, although it has bigger battery and other pros going for it, personally when an iphone 7 plus retails for £719 for 32gb model this is a fair cost, although i wish all flagships would be priced a little more reasonable, but hey thats life, my s8 plus is still ordered
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2017It's OK bro. Everyone knows you're the biggest fanboy Can you define fanboy as I have own phones from almost every brand (not your cheap chinese brands) I have an iPhone 7 tho I'm regretting. After using so many phones I've a good knowledge of what's a great phone and what was a mistake so it doesn't make me a fanboy.
