I was a 100% gonna pre-order the S8+ but, here in the UK, you don't get a single perk for pre-ordering a phone that you are already paying a higher price for than the rest of the world, and have just two color options to choose from. I'll wait for now.

Choeneqck, 03 Apr 2017Even if others trash sammy, its sales will still destroy your cherished chinese OEMs like onep... moreYeah, because sales = quality.
The iPhone 6s outsold the S7 edge last year. So according to you, that makes it better than the S7e or it simply makes you feel better owning a phone everyone has.
I'd pick S7 Edge or OnePlus 3T, whoever said OP3T is just the same with other Chinese OEMs does not know the quality of the phone it's specs which made it lead the mobile market for 2 quarters in 2016
Yes indeed, quite right, the Mi5 for Â€180 with 820 is a Riot. You get 4 of those from one SlamDunkSunk S8.
Even if others trash sammy, its sales will still destroy your cherished chinese OEMs like oneplus. Thats a fact. Even if you say its not worth upgrading, not all people think like you and they would still buy.
I pre ordered p10 plus. S7 was my last sammy. S8 is too much s4, too little s4 and a failure like note 7. I hope people have good insurance, bc the s8 will also blow. Same battery as note 7, li-poly so the phone can be slimmer.
Pre-ordering is very risky. No reviews on the official retail units yet. I always wait a few months before buying just to make sure that there is generally no problem with the devices being sold.
I will of course look at the new Samsung devices. But I think you got a lot of value from some Chinese brands. OnePlus but also other options.
They might not be the bleeding edge in all features, but I think they are okay.
who ever commented about oneplus 3/3T here is a person with poor decision making. Anyway there is mi5 half the price of oneplus but on par with each other. However this s8 is very expensive, I bought my s7 edge(exynos) for 500$ last Christmas of 2016 with free original samsung clear cover. In my opinion s8 is too expensive. Can't afford a phone at this price range already. 400-500 is ideal for me.
Atuj, 02 Apr 2017Do you ever changed rom on your flagship, and you are talking about customization Themes is the most complex customization he knows of xD
He has no clue about roms or gravity box.

You have to put it down either way so it's not really wireless. It's just slower and a stupid gimmick. I never use it.

jesse.clark, 02 Apr 2017Not your fault, you never used a flagship phone. Once plus use the cpu which is being used by ... moreExynos is only slightly better at multicore but worse at single core performance, also mali is much worse than adreno. So not worth double the price.
Hahahaha I'm not talking about launchers. You obviously have no clue about the customization one plua offers. For example they have both hardware and software navigational keys, both of which you can change however you want. Who cares about Samsung themes when you can't hide apps in the app drawer anymore, which is hilarious because you used to be able to in S5 and Note 4.
Edge display is a useless, albeit fancy, gimmick. Wireless charging is a gimmick since you still have to put down the phone. VR is crap and has jumped the shark. No one is using it, not even on pc. Smartwatches are gimmicks. My watch is perpetuum, can use it till the day I die. You have to charge yours every night. Real men don't use that stupid toy.
S7 is the most beautiful phone out now, just like s6 edge was and now s8 is. But please, we all know that it's full of gimmicks no one ever uses and don't really work well, like the stupid heartrate monitor and the now retarded aspect ratio.
Most people use their phones for instagram and facebook. And even power users that play video games can play the most demanding games on even an S4 with no lag.

Once plus use the cpu which is being used by every other oem, and it is proved every year that exynos is better than SD and I don't remember when one plus had an exynos cpu. If it's about customization, Samsung has a theme store and you can choose the theme you want from it, better than your definition of customization by downloading launchers etc. A flagship should look beautiful but one plus is really a cheap looking phone. If it's true flagship why it doesn't offer you even 20% of what Samsung flagship offers? It'll stay a cheap chinese brand. Samsung gives you the best looking curved display, fast wireless charging, amazing VR experience, support for the best smartwatch the gear S3, never heard about a smartwatch from over plus. You can have use two accounts for every app in Samsung. I've iphone 7 and galaxy S7 edge so I know how superior galaxy S7 is, and I know it's better than your Chinese brands because I know what features they lack but I can use. One plus one is a limited market cheap phone, well better than iphone probably in some key areas as it's a powerful Android phone with a better display but not even close to galaxy S8.
Savor , 02 Apr 2017If Apple is for those middle class yuppies and poseurs trying to chase some invisible status q... moreTruth.
To be fair though...no company caters to anyone else nowadays. There's just no money in making stuff for nerds. We old school nerds expect a lot for a little and won't accept anything less...and there aren't many of us to top it all off.
If Apple is for those middle class yuppies and poseurs trying to chase some invisible status quo from a smartphone, then the S8 appeals to those morons and iPhone switching/Android newbies finally willing to adapt to "change."
With the way Samsung copies Apple and Apple will implement S8 features on their iPhone Edition to make it look similar, they are basically two sides of the same coin these days using a different OS with the same cartoony app icons. Both caters to morons who know nothing about tech except getting a phone in a pretty color.
i just wanted to pitch in that the new position of the finger print reader is that of the old position of the heart rate monitor...so it means one of the 2 things...everyone is just trashing s8 for no reason..or the heart rate monitor is a gimmick that no one ever used in the first place...and lastly, if you could text using a numpad on a featurephone without looking at it, you can probably find the fp reader without scratchin out the lens
