And little do I know the radio is already there. They just block it out. So because I don't like it and it's an $800 phone that inbuilt features are being unvoluntarily removed I'm happy because I don't use it.
And again. I don't care about the speaker quality on my $800 phone so why should anyone else care?
In fact I'm gonna make up this scenario in my head that is completely bogus but state it as if it is perfectly fitting and logical.
Anyone that wants quality speakers must be some annoying kid who wants to blare music on a bus to torment people.
In fact let's be like the rest of those types of people. Why do we need this high res good quality displays? We have tvs.
And why should they have good graphics? Only kids and immature people play games or do anything graphical on phones.
And if want to complain about cameras so much on phones you should just go buy a camera.
And why do we need more ram? It's just a phone.
You people are stupid to expect improved and better tech on these devices.
They should just make it single core, maybe 1gb ram, 4 inch wvga display, a crappy single speaker that at least plays ring tones, and a noisy crappy 3mp..
BUT STILL CHANGE US $800. Then I'll be satisfied.

And in that case Sony and anyone that plays or records in HD or uses a camera period is copying samsung. Soooooo.....
I think its a nice move. I like to try phones but after 2 months with Alcatel 4s I wont change soon. The speakers were never a thing I used to check when getting a phone, but now I know. YouTube and gaming with qhd oled and jbl speakers is something else.
And no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Never again to Apple and Samsung when it comes to smartphones. Apple makes the best computers though because OSX is so stable and Samsung make excellent TVs. But never again to an iPhone or Galaxy flagship if no headphone jack and removable battery.
Stick to LG.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2016The top and bottom idea is good but against Samsung idea of creating bezel-less phone. Yes, this is against bezel-less phones. I actually meant not placing speakers on top and bottom of the screen but on top and bottom of the body of the phone.
Bras, 06 Dec 2016Pls put fm radio.... im still in my note 2! i need it.Note 4 has it
From the look of things, not that branded stereo speakers or dual rear cameras interest me: They throw in a Harman-powered speaker so they can easily charge about $700-800 minimum; They junk out dual rear cameras so as not to charge $1000+ premium if both Harman stereo speakers and dual rear cameras are a go on the S8
This is going to be so sweet! Samsung literally have to pull out all the stops and I can't wait! I will gladly welcome stereo speakers too.

Obviously, there are solutions such as external bluetooth speakers (whose microphones are generally crap) or headsets (which don't fit my scenario). So, the speakers aren't just about playing music
It is a phone, after all.
