S8+ photo would be better if the sharpness wasn't set so high. When compared to V20, S8+ is second. Just check out UK Pound and USD details (if more, look at the metro map as well), texture.

Below is the low light studio comparison between S8+, V20 and Mate 9.
S8+ first, Mate 9 and V20 fighting for second & third.

S8+ will surely be better than XZ (of course; S7 Edge was better as well). The comparison had to be done with better camera phones (which has 2 cameras as well). I didn't even say P10 or iPhone 7 Plus. Mate 9 & V20 are 50% cheaper than S8+. Sad but true. If you don't accept that fact, go and let your eyes checked. If you are a desperate fanboy (who is unhappy with this phone), it is your problem :)
1 camera in such an expensive phone is bulls..t, red tint on the screen is even more desperate failure. It is even on the review phone. I am LMAO.

Honestly, Sony is competing for the last bit of scraps of the market share and don't pose any kind threat to the top dogs...don't forget, Nokia flagship is coming as well, they are a threat to Sony. Competition...I'm all for it.

no matters how powerful CPU Samsung used, if they still using Android lag still will be happen. Samsung need to build their own OS. so easy to them to optimize like iOS. good luck for S8/S8+. Iphone X will coming soon.

Honestly speaking (after pixel peeping some hundreds DSLR's in dpreview reviews all through the years) V20 photos are still better than that of S8+. S8+ low light studio photo is too oversharpened and lost its fidelity.
Only 1 back camera is another problem. Note 8 will come with 2 cameras. So, after 4 or so months, this phone will become old school!
From a photographic point of view (from audiophile point of view as well) I couldn't see any quality points to justify its strathosperically high 1280-EURO price tag here in Turkey (while V20 & Mate 9 are costing less than 50% of its price).
That red tint on the screen is just ugly! It is right over there on the review unit as well. Just check out the page 6.Performance where S8+ sits next to G6. It is bad for such an expensive phone. 1280-EURO phone with an inevitable red tint on the screen. What a shame.
consumersmartphone, 19 Apr 2017Absolutely, as long as that fruit logo still on back, everything will be just fine!6 months old CPU still outperform latest 835/exynos.. hahahaha
Chiru, 19 Apr 2017who care... A10 fusion still on top!Absolutely, as long as that fruit logo still on back, everything will be just fine!
Pro.DigiVid, 19 Apr 2017So I read the review. Some of my thoughts are similar. But not all. I got my S8+ as well today... moreI agree with you..
I held this phone the other day at samsung store.
It didn't feel premium, it's almost like glass toy feeling in my hand.
HTC10 is much better premium built compared to S8, but samsung giant marketing budget wants you to think otherwise!

It shows the low light studio for the S8+, Xperia X (23MP) and Xperia XZ (19MP). The S8 blows them away.
The S8 cam is the same as S7 in basic specs but look at the studio samples and the performance is a big step up in low light.

Even newer Android or ios version updates are to make ppl upgrade their phones. Not anything like privacy. Everyone is being tracked... With his phone, with each email login, with each GPS use, with each status update(what they're doing) and now with smart home . Consumer privacy does not exist at all IMO.
