The S( Edge has not double the screen size of the S7. 6.3" is not even close to be double to 5.1", even the area is only about 50% higher.

Rest of the phone was and is without any problems. THEY killed note7, not some battery manufacturer.

Lets see how Samsung redeems itself with the S8/S8+, so far everything is looking very good.
1 handed mode with Samsung is really easy to use. Your cries about it being too big fall on deaf ears. Plenty of other tiny phones out there for people who want less screen or don't want to read the manual...
nonynoniazed, 18 Jan 2017Since when has Sony upgraded their specs lol I think your comment would make more sense if you... moreJust one thing, what can you consider to be more futuristic phone, XZ or note7 (one with safe battery of course...).? XZ- with great camera hw and focus ui, hires selfies, stereo repro, connectable to playstation or note7- with edge screen, almost limitless camera ui (besides v20), better 4K stabilisation, low light, useful hdr front and back cameras, iris-scanner, spo2, heartrate sensors, more sharp and hdr screen which you can choose resolution of, wireless charging, stylus, samsung pay, better creen-to-body ratio, more battery-efficient processor(also better whole endurance), ability to use it with cheap hw as VR game console. .....And there is going to be a lot more this year what a phone can do, I guess it won't be Sony phone but samsung's Smart-phone.... again its almost devastating defeat now that I look at it.
nonynoniazed, 18 Jan 2017Lol you had no interest in ever purchasing an S8 don't kid yourself. FYKI..Im continuously using s5,s6 and s7 edge nw

535dinesh, 16 Jan 2017Now time to look for Nokia flagship as the size is big for normal usageLol you had no interest in ever purchasing an S8 don't kid yourself.
mNiosu, 16 Jan 2017Why do you say the camera sucks? S7 for example has one of the best cameras in the mobile market?It was a reply towards an iphone 7 plus talk, i agree the s7 edge was probably the best camera of 2016.
RaghavaZ, 16 Jan 2017Camera sucks? really? it is rated as one of the best camera phone of 2016. And it also has far... moreThe iphone 7 plus is horrible in screen to body ration, i don't know what you are talking about. I am a cameraphone enthusiast and have owned anything from nokia 808, lumia 1020, s7 edge, s6 edge plus, and multiple iphones - this camera sucks in medium to low light period.
john1102, 16 Jan 2017hopefully there is a version without curved edges....Lol I wouldn't bet on it, looks like Samsung is done with flat screen phones at least for now.
"That means the Galaxy S8 will have a larger screen than the S7 edge while being about the size of the S7!" SamKing you've done it again!!! I'm so hyped! And why bother comparing the "old" S7 to the S8 when the Edge is closer to its size anyway?
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2017He's right, 130x65 is the threshold for one-handed use. They could make a phone as small if th... moreWhat you said may be true for some. But I've seen girls using xperia z ultra and galaxy tab s as primary phone. Galaxy s8 is very very compact and small compare to these.
