Way too expensive.
I bought S4 for 600Â€ in day of release. I won't pay for S8+ 900Â€ (prices in Ireland). I don't need pay for bixby, curved edges or their mistake with Note 7. Face recognition was introduced already in S4, also with IR blaster, barometer thermometer and few other things S8 doesn't have.

S8 costs 57,000 INR and S8+ costs 64,000 INR and it comes with Wireless Charger if you preorder.. samsung really sucks.. its not worth.. wireless charger is available on amazon of rs 990/- we would b fools if we buy or preorder samsung s8 / s8+.. and samsung decided no price cut for last generation models s7/ s7 edge.. but in other countries you can get s7 edge of rs 30,000/-
As far as generations pass I see more and more fragile phones. S8 is plenty powerful there is no doubt about that, but it's big and ugly for me. S7 is a beauty compared to this.
Do the back and front cameras still distort people's faces due to the wide angle barrel distortion like the S6/S7?

The S8+ camera looks amazing in the low light tests. Will notice a massive difference over the GN4 :-) Definitely the best mobile camera available atm.

Knowing that the GN8 will have a glass back with no removable battery, I'm really in limbo about getting a GN4 because I want a better camera. I have thoroughly enjoyed the camera of the GN7. My GN3 still works, but just a little patience is needed for the focusing.

I totally agree on the glass back. The GN4 back has so much more grip, won't shatter or show fingerprints.
It's a pity that practicality is trumped by looks now days.
I hate cases so will just hope that i don't drop it :)

Yeah, my daughter is 10 months and i really want a camera that is better than the GN4.
If the GN8 has any good improvements (like dual camera) I will probably trade the S8+ in then :-)
Should be here tomorrow (fingers crossed).
That's a pretty hefty "just without". S Pen is important. I had the Note 7. Have a Note 5 64GB now. The distorting curved screens just ruin these phones. The non-standard ~2:1 aspect ratio makes the situation even worse. Sad.
