Beholder, 31 Jan 2017No... Less bezel(upper and lower) + bigger screen to keep same height. But phone is going... moreNo it won't because of the different aspect ratio. The aspect ratio is so tall that I doubt it would be much wider than S7 edge

Es... moreAndroid and Qualcomm go way back and have a great history together, they've proven to be very reliable and practical and it will always be more popular than the rest especially in western markets. There are plenty of people like me who exclusively buy Snapdragons only, we don't even bother looking at the other SoC's regardless of the useless benchmarks lol

Anonymous, 31 Jan 2017no one care anymore. most of them already forget it and they are waiting for s8. this is samsu... more$2+ billion last quarter bro and that's no chump change, they'll make even more with the S8's and the Note 8 I have absolutely no doubt about it. At least they reinvest a lot of their profits back into R&D unlike certain companies who shall go unnamed, hint they're not even in the top 10 smartphone companies list lol
Excellent news, the S8's are turning into quite the kickass phones that'll easily blow away the competition! And the starting price point of $864 is fair and just, won't be surprised if the smaller model beats the larger one in sales this time around.
AnonD-190868, 31 Jan 2017why don't they make it bigger than A9 Pro it's 5000mAh and the screen is 6.0 1080 not even QHD... moreThe A9 Pro, and the C9 Pro come to that, are both pyshically bigger phones.
why don't they make it bigger than A9 Pro it's 5000mAh and the screen is 6.0 1080 not even QHD so they can but they don't want to!
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2017Less bezel but wider? That statement itself is self contradictary. No...
Less bezel(upper and lower) + bigger screen to keep same height.
But phone is going to be wider because of the bigger screen.
6,2".... It is huge, more than a Xperia XA Ultra. Xa Ultra has screen/body = 76%
They say s8 is 80%.
No way this phone fits in. No in your pants pockets.
Samsung phones suffer from poor battery life.
It doesn't matter they are flagships or ordinary mid range phones. They all suffer from poor battery life since the beginning.
Lord Bayron, 31 Jan 2017actually Apple's OS is less modular then Android, making it more stable and mre perfected for ... moreActually that's not the reason. Android is service based, iOS is app based. The two differ majorly. One is more akin to a full OS the other is more like an embedded OS. It made sense to ran an embedded-like OS in late 00s, now it holds iphones back.
Little capacity for customization (no Facebook chat heads for example), no skins, no real back grounding (it's very 'round the way, the way backgrounding works on iOS).
The only problem with Android is that Google doesn't believe in it. They believe in Chrome OS more, so most of their expertise goes there. That's certainly a bad move as it was android their main cash cow as far as OS development goes.
If they were to try to expand android to encompass PC use it would be a world class, one in a kind OS. Yet Google lacks vision, which means they'd confine it to mobiles forever allowING it to keep all of its inherent problems...

iphone price = rip off = great resale value = cause sheeps are dumb
flagship galaxy price = right price = worst resale value = why do you sell it to begin with?
iphone performance = smooth as silk = cause it can not do multitask / low resolution = my iphone lags (fake iphone user)
galaxy permance = laggy time to time = your unit is defective mine never does = your phone is defective even my 2 years old galaxy S5 does not lag at all (fanboys in denial)
Force Majeure, 31 Jan 2017You think that SD 821 would beat the A10 if they both were running Android? Hmm interesting...... moreThey did ran cross platform benchmarks and both the cpu and gpu of SD821 is being punished. Especially in the CPU department Qualcomm is legitimely bad, I don't know where they find those fans. Even Huawei and Soon Mediatek that use stock ARM will surpass their cpus this year. It's ridiculous how far back android is being kept by Qualcomm insisting to those second rate cores... it's that bad.
Merely the notion that any Qualcomm SoC can even compete with last year's Apple SoC is a joke, they are at least a generation apart. It's so sad. I honestly hope more companies are going to choose a different road than Qualcomm's, because Qualcomm seems to doom the whole market.
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2017More explosive than note 7 :DDon't mind this 5yr old. Exploding battery is getting really old. Bigger batteries is always welcome!
You kidding me? Those are smaller batteries. S8 is closer in power requirements as S7 edge (due to the screen size), in fact it probably has greater power requirements than S8 edge and it *still* gets smaller battery?!
Like I said in the other thread, prepare to be majorly dissapointed from this gen of S phones. The similarly bezeless phone from China have 4000+ batteries, as they should, given the bigger screens they house on the same point.
This obsession with a few mm slimmer bodies should stop. A 7.3mm thick and a 7.8mm thick phone are similar on the hand (especially if the edges are done correctly), but that small difference can add up to more than 800 MaH in battery, allowing for 4000+ phones.
Samsung supposededly killed the removable batteries (among other things) so that to to fit great capacities. I hardly see that. Note 4 with the 5.7 inch screen had the same amount as S8 (with 5.8) ... except it was *removable*.
