My dad has an iPhone 7 he never uses 3d touch because I've tried and it just feels unnecessary. Personally these stupid & childish arguments need to stop, I'm a Huawei P10 user by the way this is another company that is underrated like Sony, People are just Brainwashed OMG its a samsung it must be good, Oh look at me I have the phone with the Apple on it, FYI apple user's stop using an iPhone as a fashion statement Suhanno agree with me that's why people own iPhones otherwise why else would they?

I dont think nobody will spend INR 58,000 on any phone without knowing anything about that phone. People are not that much dumb now a days. I have purchased S8 after knowing all the pros and cons then i decided to buy. My money my choice. If anybody dont like then dont purchase. As simple as that. Dont know why few people are unnecessarily wasting their time here to know us about the cons. We know that very well. Ridiculous arguements going on here.
Nick Bekauri, 28 May 2017Galaxy S7 Edge has got 3600 mAh and for Galaxy S8 isn't low 3000 mAh?Enough for me. On my s8, it last 2 to 3 days for normal usage with 4 to 5 hours SOT. Playing heavy games, I got SOT of 3.5 to 4 hours.
Fazsubie, 28 May 2017Do this phone get hot when playing high end android game for 1-2 hour ? No heat issue except if I am playing heavy games with mobile data only.

But then again, it wasn't what you said earlier. You said that S8's glass feels like plastic. Why don't you teach us fools how is it so? Maybe we'll learn something new and start seeing the world in a different angle.
Just mega pixel isn't everything about a camera. First learn about a camera, then come to argue. The sensor plays a major role (we count the mega pixel for the sensor), but the aperture (f-stop), the low light capacity (dual pixels captures more light than single pixel sensors) and the lens quality also matters to get a better picture. That is why DDLRs have separate lenses, to let you get better result from the same camera body. So, when you buy a $200 phone with higher camera resolution, be sure that those phones go nowhere near (at least in the camera section) with a $500+ phone with lower camera resolution. Bring your examples (redmi note4, lenovo makes many models, which one are you talking about?) to compare with phones like Google Pixel, LG G6, Samsung Galaxy S8, Apple iPhone 7+, HTC U11 (any one or all of these, your choice) etc and take pictures and compare them side by side in a computer. You'll see the differences in the noise level, sharpness and clarity of the pictures. And that is where it matters. Any phone can take pictures, it's a good picture that real people want.
Now don't start comparing these phones with DSLRs, they're not as good as them ($800 for just the camera body vs $800 for a phone with camera and lens and everything else). But now a days, any flagship (from any reputed manufacturers) device's camera can defeat any stand alone camera.
Can you count? Sorry, sure you can. Do you know how pixels are calculated? I guess not. Sure, 1440 is merely 33% larger (not 10%. That is why I asked whether you can count or not) than 1080. But that is NOT how they are calculated. 1920*1080=2073600p and 2560*1440=3686400p, which is almost 78% bigger than FHD or 1080. And fyi, who watches video all the time in a phone? Is watching video the only reason people buy a phone? What about the Internet browsing, social networking and playing games, which btw, supports 1440 with ease. And there are more apps with 1440p resolution (2K) than 1080p resolution (1K). Smart phones are not used for watching movies, but for using different apps and games actually.
One more thing. In another comment you said, "to further remind nowadays all phone is waterprooff....heat cannot escape.... even bacteria also cannot go out....." - SERIOUSLY? Where did you go to school? I mean, did you ever study Physics 101? For sound to pass, you need the air to pass through as sound travel through air. If phones are sealed off to keep bacteria inside (as per your comment), then the sound will also not pass through. There are tiny vents for speakers in water resistant phones, through which the air can pass, but not the water. That is, btw, enough for heat (and bacteria, if you consider) to pass through. Last time I checked, bacteria didn't grow much bigger than they were last thousand years, ROFL.
And yes, one of the duty of the back cover is to pass the heat through. This is why Apple uses Aluminium as the back cover rather than glass as it transfer heat better (better heat conductor). So, heat don't get trapped inside. If it would, it would definitely burn the internal parts of the phone.
Anyway, if you're happy with a $200 phone, that's fine with me. But don't come to argue that a $200 phone can compete with a $500+ phone. People are NOT stupid to spend their money without any reason. Yes, if Xiaomi would make a similar phone like S8, they would cost $400 rather than $800. But you should have heard about the brand value, didn't you? It matters.
So please, my advice to you is to Google (means, search) things BEFORE you place your arguements and then talk about the facts, not some things that you've dreamt in your mind. It really puts you as a stupid guy in front of us - we don't wanna see you being stupid, we want everyone to be smart.
Everyone take care. Ciao...

Bixby is useless (I don't live in the USA)
Biometrics are flaky - it's quicker just to use the old pin method
No Voice Command - WTF Samsung??
Have a serious think before buying the S8
Anonymous, 26 May 2017Samsung should also work in compact mini phones with high end specs and good design to o I sure agree! compact sizes with same features than those bulky ones are better and handy
Samsung should really try creating a high end compact phones. Bulky or big sizes phone is nice but compact sizes with same features are way better and handy!
