"S8 is a TALLER version of the 5_inch phone indeed"
Xperia XA is a 5 incher with bezeless display having a net overall width of 68 mm
S8 has 68.1 mm width
So S8 is "big"on paper
But it has a same width comparing to Sony XA , 5_inch bezeless phone
In fact S8 is a smaller taller narrower phone even to compare last year Samsung S7
Superb phone , awesome look ,perfect size and easy to carry .
Seriously why does everyone bang on about Does it have a FM radio MY GOD GO and get grandma's radio from her kitchen, This is the 21st Century get a app with crackle free sound , yes it cost data when you go out , then I would suggest you get an unlimited data plan , IT'S THAT EASY.
Love the phone but I am a bit doubtful with the camera performance. Don't get me wrong it's great but there are various youtube videos of camera comparison with Xperia XZs from different uploaders (so definitely not rigged lol) and XZs was surprisingly better. And XZs is not even the actual Sony flagship this year !!!!

Because you don't use Samsung smartphone and dont know nothing about it. For me all Samsung features is usefull. Like no other. I do work, play and entertainment just only with my Note 3. I don't need laptop also.
Wireless often not working and showing an exclamation sign near it!often needs to disable it and then enable back!don't know whats this about!
Why is the curved narrow screen when all use 99% in vertical position ????? Rather than expanding for that reason ?????
Presently I'm using Galaxy S3 I9300. Today whenever I use this phone, this looks like TV remote - Too tall. I pre-booked GS8 +.
sam, 22 Apr 2017why red tint is thereeeee???? how can fix itIts exactly not.. There is a option "bluelight filter". If we turn on that feature, then the screen comes red tilt.
"Some might get excited by the Snapdragon 835 processor and the Galaxy S8's new position as the benchmark champion, but thanks to Samsung's heavy and seemingly poorly optimized software, those speed increases don't translate to a snappy UI experience. Scrolling in heavier apps, like the Play Store, is slow, stuttery, and unable to hit a smooth 60FPS. In general, scrolling on the S8 has a consistent jerky stutter to it, almost like it is locked to scrolling every three pixels instead of every one pixel. Not everyone will notice the effect, but it will bother performance sticklers.
Samsung seems very much like a company focused on the showroom presentation of a product, and it could give more consideration to the little details that make the overall ownership experience better. There are lots of featuresÂ—the curved display, the iris scanner, the heart rate monitor, Bixby, and DexÂ—that make great demos but don't meaningfully change what it's like to use the phone day to day. I can just imagine the Verizon salesperson now: "Look at all the stuff this phone does that those other phones can't do! It can scan your heart rate and your eyeballs, and it has a futuristic curved display! You can hook it up to a monitor and it turns into a full computer!"
Once the customer spends a few weeks with the product, though, they'll find none of those features actually useful."
^ My thoughts exactly at what Samsung is trying to do. Gimmicks for a showroom that nobody will use or find useful in the longer run. Samsung needs to focus on the tiny details to make the overall user experience better. While Gizmodo is too busy fawning over the S8's beautiful design and nothing more after that. Shallow.
dudecool, 22 Apr 2017im not a fan of big and heavy phones, and I consider this to be just that... heavy and big
... moreAnd that is why I only keep my phones in my jacket pockets and not jeans and always make sure they have zippers, so the phone doesn't fall out.
In addition, I make sure there is nothing else there so the phone doesn't get scratched.
I got mine like 3 days ago, and it was amazing. Cameras are great, Battery is better than average( although I used high performance games), Optimizations are great, The screen is damn gorgeous and overall a sleek smooth phone and I'm suprised that my index finger can locate the fingerprint scanner faster than I expected...

GSM went on and on about its size, its thicker, taller and heavier then S7, and only 2mm thinner, overall its still much bigger than the S7. just a nightmare keeping it in your pocket..
I'll wait for the S8 mini, if that's not slick and light enough ill go back to Apple.
ugly phone with no innovation. hahahaha 2017 gonna be failure of samsung lolololol

Is there even a comparison? Iphone is a phone, less smart-more dumb.... which does half of what any good android phone does............
Comparing a small screen low res phone performance to a mammoth of a screen with high resolution is no comparison.
