Actually you've more serious problems to consider rather than an auto-focus, selfie camera lol what an epic fail
Samsung knows they have got to make the Galaxy S8 phones really outstanding,to show to the critics than they are the Best phone produces after the Note 7 saga,looks like 2017 is going to be "Edge" screen bonanza,with all the other phone makers releasing Edge screen phones,plus Bezeless screen phones

Exept that they can get pretty buggy if theyr used with random applications and whatnot, but i assume such issues are worked out before theyr given to such critical applicants, like police officers, firemen, etc.

Claudiu.Lucian, 29 Nov 2016The removable battery is gone and lost, forget it... But the preferences of the user are not. Bite it.

JustaTechEnthusiast, 29 Nov 2016After the Note 7 fiasco Samsung seems to go all out with the upcoming Galaxy S8. I might even ... morewhat's stopping you from buying this :
Although IMHO it's colour scheme is more fitting for the Active variant :-)
And it's price seems reasonable too, a good 27000 USD almost as much as the new phone itself :-)
Claudiu.Lucian, 29 Nov 2016I know that technology exists and they can put a 12MP 1/3" Dualpixel OIS selfie camera with fl... moreUnfortunately i dont think that will ever change, unless we see some sort of new startup and Google/HTC/Huawei start to work on something like that!
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2016Windows 10 is rubbish and dead. Sorry broLol? Windows 10 Mobile is definetly not a good choice for consumers, but its stable and safer to maintain by companies who want to offer voicecalls and multimedia access on a large scale to theyr employees for literally free. Remenber a news that claimed that almost everyone on the NYPD workforce would be using windows phones until the end of this year? Yeah, theyr really important for light users or encrypted wannaget users.
Drinkableach, 29 Nov 2016A joke is to think the technology doesnt exist and that the company isnt willing to do so, sim... moreI know that technology exists and they can put a 12MP 1/3" Dualpixel OIS selfie camera with flash, but they don't care about a thing if it's not used frequently by 100% of clients,they want money, not to make the best phone, we can't change it. In the same time they can put a battery 50% bigger, but they want an ultra ultra slim device who caches the eye and the pocket.
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2016And why the hell would we need THAT? Are you all so self-absorbed narcissistic egomaniacs, ... moreWhat a royal pain in the arse that you are... Problem with your logic is, were living a world where flipping the device towards the back camera where you cant see what the heck your doing doesnt work for anyone and the fact that front facing cameras have become so freaking useful for mobile VoIP calls and other enterprise workers and even my grandma on a large campus or exteriors of a household (where you cant have a Cisco stationary phone with the linecord extended by 30 meters or +), that not improving on a technology that certainly helps the user to achieve a better prespective of its own self and friends/family/colleagues around him, is the plain definition of a retrograde in progress, because LTE is based on the ability of high quality voicecalls with video live (Yes, that thing you see in sci-fi movies or future prespectives of our real world). What you want everyone wants already, in every smartphone! Mega corporations arent willing to improve on such a grandious scale, because the profit loss would be inconceivable for them, who waste hundreds of millions on research, sketching, implementations, factories and laboratories, global shipping, providing, manufacturing and consumer assistance pretty much everywhere. Jeez, catch up with the times pinhead.
Five Star, 29 Nov 2016They meant that samsung are 'finally' improving their front camera....As if THAT is the one thing that needs improvement!
Samsung should just stop bullshitting us and get it's quality right.
If I want a grenade in my pant I'll join the army not Samsung!
And blinding fools with all that fluff is fine for the fools but some of us are smarter than that!
Claudiu.Lucian, 29 Nov 2016The removable battery is gone and lost, forget it... Then my money stays in my wallet. Geddit?
I'm the consumer, I'LL decide what I want!
Manufacturers don't have to decide for me!

You guys always demands and ask for this and that. Be contented for what we currently have and what we will have. Don't ask for too much.
If you want a perfect phone then try making one yourself. :)

Are you all so self-absorbed narcissistic egomaniacs, djeez!
We don't need gazilion megapixels AF selfie cams. It just need to be good enough for Skype or other videoconferencing apps.
Just get that back-camera right and use a goddamn mirror like they used to do in the past!
Like this: http://www.tecnozoom.it/immagini/7/133097/sony-ericsson-k750i-1n.jpg
--> for the clueless dimwits: The mirror that I'm referring to is that little shiny circle under the lens.
Or here a close-up of the mirror on the K700i (that square silver thing under the LED)
It was simple and effective and just as good using the better AF-camera at the back without any additional crap.
I'd rather have more battery juice, IR-blaster, user-replaceable batteries, SD-card-slots and better reception than an AF-front camera (probably with stupid LED-flash as well instead of just making the screen all-white before taking a shot).
It's seems that these days it's just tech for the tech instead of actually improving the product, morrons!
Claudiu.Lucian, 29 Nov 2016The removable battery is gone and lost, forget it... Nah not yet, as long as LG still put them in their flagships theres still hope. and after the blowing up of the note 7 they may have it removable
