Anonymous, 18 Dec 2016Apple havent made a quality hig end phone period.Well that's exactly why the constant copycatting from them is so disgusting and ridiculous. Just because they don't have a good phone doesn't mean we shouldn't get one either. Yet that's exactly the case. Everything is iPhones these days.
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2016First and most important more than 5.1 inch will be a dealbreaker The smaller the size the bigger the dealbreaker
If the S8's screen starts at 5.7" as has been rumored, that automatically takes it out of contention for me. I own the S7 and think the 5.1" is already borderline too large for me (I'm in the minority who still prefer smaller screens, say 4.5"-4.7") but premium phones all start at 5.1"+ these days so I gave up and got the S7).

Samsung hasn't made a quality high-end phone since the Note 4. Bring back the versatility of that device instead of the glitter that passes for phones nowadays. That is what will sell to the masses.

Powerful hw, crappy curved screen and worse battery. And I still don't know why the Sammy tv can understand Danish, while the phone can't.
Gibbs-kamhagh, 18 Dec 2016Oh dear... you haven't met them yet..... Don't try to you'll lose your faith in humanity! I've already lost it. They are so brainwahsed and so many...every time a new ane expensive "premium" toy comes up, they just have to have it. So yea, they may not be loyal to a brand, but this is even worse - buying multiple brands every time something trendy comes up.

I believe in benefits of digital audio connections but the fact is that when phone manufacturers remove 3.5 mm headphone jack they don't include a second one USB port therefore if user's phone doesn't support wireless charging he's limited to either charging phone or listening to music, not both at the same time. I guess in Samsung's case that's not too much of a problem, although I personally don't fancy wireless charging.

Apple has fanboyism because if someone like iOS they only have one choice. People who prefer Android have a wide variety of choice for their phones. I stuck with Samsung at first because they had the features I wanted, then they stopped so I stopped buying them. The majority of Android users aren't loyal to any specific brand.
So true. Reasonable people just don't buy flagships anymore, they are just fashionphones, with or without the 3.5mm jack. The rest buy them no matter what.
That'sd why the removablke battery's "ship" has "sailed"...
Now we don't even have a choice thanks to all that mindless fan-boys, but i personnally protest by not buying expensive phones. Non-removable battery=no more than $250-$300.

Samsung thinks that design is more important than features so they copy Apple. As a power user, I hate this. What Samsung should do is make a power user model in addition to the S8. Let's call this model the Note 8 just for kicks. It should have:
A removable battery and SD card, 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio, and MHL or Slimport support. These are important features to so many. I had to go buy a LG V20 to get this stuff. A phone without these features is a featureless phone; not a power user ohone. Oh, I forgot the Stylus. We need that too.
