biomachine, 27 Jan 2017If the pictures are real, in my opinion it means that left-handed people are discriminated... noone cares about lefties and gingers
In my opinion, assuming these "leaked" specs is a load of hogwash. Until I see the specs, official, with the stamp of Samsung on the commercial for the phone, then I won't believe a word anyone says about this. I can believe the phone will look like, or be really similar to the one released but I won't believe the hardware specs until Samsung puts it out themselves.
For me these rumour news are very fake. It's truly lie what appeared in that source. Why they have the need of lying at this point. It's only for desmotivate the people and decepsionate the customers and fans.
wow. 799 and 899 Euros. Hurry up guys, pay your hard earned money to Samsung and other big companies and make their CEOs and shareholders more richer :)
Laci..., 27 Jan 2017Yeah, photos and videos (youtube, etc.) will definitely have the black bars :S.I will be getting the black phone so it will simply look like an extension of the bezels... I can understand why they do it with on screen buttons.

I'm not convinced on the curved edges or sealed batteries but everything else looks ok.
The S8 plus will probably replace my GN4.

1st impression - Samsung guys are trying to change their smartphone into dil.do.
I was using Iphones until I5, which was too elongated for my taste.
2nd - I hate idea of fingerprint sensor next to camera lens because of smudging.
The rest is meaningless for me. Maybe, Apple here my money comes again?

More Ram means more performance at all times on Linux, on Windows it means close to nothing. Take your ignorance elsewhere.

4Gbytes of RAM, plenty enough for everything, the stuck for lag is not the RAM for program loading, if not the Data Access, so many programs with too many graphics and other resources are just bad programmed, cause in this days, programming technics are more near to fast programming than to efficiency. Not to mention that a lot of app's want access to almost every resource in the phone.
Photo, 12MP can be better than 24MP, the size of megapixels are directly related to the lens quality and image processing quality, why do you guess that a Pro Camera cost about 5 grands, come on guys, what do you expect, I'd watched photos from S6 and S7 to be better than a lot of photos from some consumer photo cameras..
Fingerprint sensor, maybe and just maybe, the sensor in the back allows some users (most of the them) to operate the sensor with just one hand, something difficult now with the sensor in front unless you have a large hand with large fingers, try many ways to set fingertips and to operate with just one hand, and I couldn't, maybe with a sensor on the back will be more easy for the index finger.
Stereo Speakers, This is a serious request?, in the small room of a smart phone, will sound allways like a mono speaker, whatever, allways the sound will be plane, the is no way to provide the needed room for BASS sounds, stereo effect will never be good, try to put a couple of stereo speakers just together and try to separate each channel, mean hearing them, mono or stereo does not mean quality of sound, of course normally cheaper speakers are used for mono sounds, which means less quality of sounds, not necessary this apply to flagship smartphones.
So are other things more important, and those are not mentioned on this leak, maybe didn't exist at all.
Communication and connection features are more important, processing power, graphics processing power, interoperability.
Maybe the opinions and considerations taken from the S8 will be considered for the S9, the S8 is as it is, and will see what's about on march.

Are you planning on running intelliJ and develop on it, run tomcat? More RAM just encourages android's inefficient and lazy paradigm and helps the vendors to raise the cost of the device. have you ever customized a laptop when you add RAM the price per gb tends to be double of what it would cost in amazon.
Unless you're a millennial that just plays on your phone all day in that case yeah more RAM is warranted. Just my opinion
