[deleted post]Look at this bright young man (probably a fanboy) calling others idiots.
Pray tell what is it in particular that you find quaint being posted here? Because as far as I can tell Samsung perpetuates a fraud (of the kind that companies in the past used to be paying dearly for) yet sells like hotcakes.
The theory is that reality will catch up with the fanbase and sales will be halted. If so faith in humanity= restored. Else expect S9 to be even more aggressively mediocre.
ASDFW, 30 May 2017If only Samsung unboxed S8 with Vanilla Android, I wouldn't even wait for Pixel 2.Why? There are much better phones out there.
For example mi6 wins in everything apart from screen quality. Why ewould you choose such a bad phone with such an aspect ratio as the basis for pure android?
Netter use the best hardware currently out, no? Samsiung used to be the leader, they have given up since. I mean just look at this phone, it's basically last year's phone with a taller screen.

Anonymous, 29 May 2017S8 is more like a Note 7 without S-Pen. Most of its features are borrowed from the Note 7.Note 7 was S7 with pen. So Note 7 without pen is S7.
There are a couple of gimmicks that Note 7 also had but nobody cares about them.
S8 is S7 with an awkwardly long screen, lower autonomy and bad ergonomy (I mean fingertip on the right of the camera? Seriously?)

Performance wise (autonomy, responsiveness, ergonomy, camera) it's nothing spectacular in fact in some things it's worse than s7 (ergonomy and autonomy namely).
That's just sad. All reviews have shown that it is an elongated S7 with poorer battery.
Here's hoping that the crowd would come into its senses (as most of the times) and this phone would sell less than S7 (3rd best S phone after S4 and S2)...

Some people may choose the S7 as it will be off premium but that is to only get a single year upgrade.
Ultimately one model may prove popular, so with what happened to the Note 7 and the imminent launch of tge refurbished it may post hu figures but come 2nd

sr777, 29 May 2017So what you're saying is other companies don't advertise? Not to the tune of 5 Billion dollars
I think the S7 Edge had more sales than the S7 and now the S8 has more sales than the S8+?
They wanted a bigger S7 with edges and now the S8+ is too big for them ? Hahaha
JF69, 29 May 2017This just goes to show you what constant advertising does to people's brains, no wonder Samsun... moreLOL. As if they didn't advertise for S7 or earlier models. Good for you, you have an S7 but bad for you, you also fell for their advertising of the S7
So much hate here for Samsung. Are we supposed to be inferior because we prefer the looks above speed? Not every person in this world is a tech geek so their sales are very justifiable. To be honest, Samsung makes one of the best screens and cameras out there, and it's not even as slow as much as these people claim it to be. I reallly don't know why people are claiming it's laggy. I have the S6 and it's still snappy as hell. Im so sick of all the hate Apple and Samsung get. Just proves how people always try to bring down those at the top.
