Hey guys...pls stop comparing samsung phones with Apple, s8 only can compare with HTC VIVO sony lenovo etc. iPhone is so unique ans uncomparable.
Luka3rd, 30 Mar 2017And we were making fun of iPhone getting only longer... Now Samsung made stupid design first! just like people made fun of iphone 5 when it getting bit taller
The problem is too small of a battery, poorly placed home button, why the Samsung voice assistant, just 4GB of RAM still, same camera, no telephoto lens like iPhone. I think Apple is going to meet or exceed this S series phone specs on paper and blow it out of the water performance wise. I expected a lot more Samsung.
Dolbaev, 30 Mar 2017I expected more from the S8 honestly, same camera, little battery for that screen, bad fingerp... moreThe reason why the Fusion Chipset from Apple flies like that its because its powering less pixels compared to Android devices and the requirements are not the same. HD display v.s QHD+ display from Android needs a lot of power.
JoaoBC, 30 Mar 2017I need/like/want IRBlaster, too. It´s very usefull.FM also missing
91k, 31 Mar 2017Sony xz premium is still the best phone of 2017.. Rip Samsung I will wait what Google and A... moreBy June, when XZP is released other manufacturer already ahead of them with newer and better phones. Rip Sony.
V139, 30 Mar 2017Well anybody know if the the screen is pentile or RGB ? i also have this query,,, do let me know too
3000 mAh for a 5.8" 2K screen? Only 4GB RAM? Same camera technology? No physical home button? Terrible placement of fingerprint sensor? Not waterproof (waterproof ≠ water resistant)? Too tall and too narrow? Too many defects? Too expensive?! Really?!! WTF is going on SAMSUNG?!!
It's good to do something different but weird stuff doesn't mean it's different.
Xiaomi Mi Mix has good proportions.
But Samsung with such a Design looks weird. Visually it's a very unpleasant experience, though premium offering.
The screen and resolution is sooo big! And because it's Android, It will surely affects the battery life even if it's 3000mah. Android needs more battery and RAM compared to iOS devices right? I hope 835 is really a power efficient.
I love how people are just saying it is such a terrible design for a phone. For instance the camera is the same camera as an S7 and S7 edge but with a software upgrade. The thing is, you do not need anything more than 12MP for capturing 4k quality photo as the amount of pixels match so a higher MP camera is only useful if you want to zoom in on stuff at a distance.
The amount of people who are comparing it to other Samsung phones such as the A3 or whatever saying they will never buy a Samsung due to the experience they had with these phones, they are not even in the same market as they would market under cheap, bottom of the line phones. If you want the true experience of what a Samsung phone can do, get the current S series phone as that is Samsung's top of the range phone. I have had an S7 edge for the past year and I do not regret it, the software isn't as efficient as an iPhone with resource management but it surely does make up with features. Atleast if I expose my phone to water it doesn't get destroyed instantly or even drop it from hip height, it would take a good 5 to 10 drops for the screen to crack compared to an iPhone which would shatter instantly. All of the phones are in the same money range so it is all a matter of taste. iPhones are a more software orientated phone where as Sony like to push and show what hardware and features can be accomplished in a phone of today whereas Samsung and Google make phones which are helpful with business management while trying to make something simple to use with semi-top of the line hardware to get things done at the same price as both an iPhone or a Sony.
To be honest, I am really looking forward to what Samsung are bringing to the market with the S8 and the S8+ and some of the features it carries. I will finally be able to take a work computer with me everywhere in which I can slip into my pocket no problem at all which will be incredibly useful seeing I will be on the move. I doubt it will have gaming capabilities but it is designed to be a business phone rather than a £5000 state of the art gaming pc. Just give them a chance, they have only just announced the devices.
This is what happens when you become selfish and hog all the Snapdragon 835s. Karma, right? :-D
