Why can't USA get 6gig ram option? I love Samsung phones...been waiting a long time to upgrade. I still have an S3. The note7 was first phone I wanted to upgrade now S8+ looks like comparable replacement. I was expecting more RAM though...6G in USA...please!!
Europe and Rest of the World?/ Does that include USA!? I would like to get a Chinese one. No reason Not to have 6gig, especially we will discover that it should have better performance.

Oh they give you 1 year Warranty, almost everyone else gives 2......oh they give you 3 months Tech Support......most other give lifetime support........oh they replace your phone with another second hand one......or repair with second hand parts............I can go on and on. What will you do when Apple begin to move to a repair and return service model because it is already rolling out....so then you get your 1 year, your 5 days minimum TAT and graded spare parts and if you need any tech support after 3 months...they will charge you for it. How delirious can people be!
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2017such price can buy laptop.I think that you totally underestimate how much a phone costs to develop in order to make such a great level of integration. You can not compare a Laptop to a Mobile Phone. Mobile phones are far more advanced in terms of the technology used to manufacture.
The cost goes ways beyond that of a Price Vs Specification. One day, people will realise this. RRP Vs Spec does not equal real value.
Skaare, 04 Feb 2017I've got the s7 for 8 months now and i can confirm that i lags. Its the exynos variant.I have my s7 edge(exynos) and I never had a problem. this is the best phone that I ever had.
y would a midrange phone like c6 has 6gb ram and flagship like s8 is going to have 4gb ram, bad reports

Not to mention all the evidence that demonstrates otherwise too, in regards of RAM. If is just to add cost then I'm afraid as a European I feel ripped off. The S8 plus 64 GB variant is actually rumored to be a higher price that the Pixel XL 128 GB which is overpriced to start with. It is not about whether we need it, although I don't agree with your premise and seemingly neither do Samsung themselves. It is about the lack of choice and being ripped off. By the way. I suppose using your logic we didn't need the Note 5 I Europe either.
AnonD-196068, 05 Feb 2017Then why are their different variants at all? If RAM means nothing there is no need and all th... moreThe storage and ram variants are only to add price. The average user doesn't need 128 gigs and wont notice the difference between a 4gb and 6gb variant
That is a ridiculous price for a phone, especially during present economy slow down globally. I bet my $$$ this S8 sales will not be better than its prev models.
The words below are directly from the Samsung Hong Kong web site word for word. So 6GB does make a difference according to Samsung themselves. Given the 653 SoC is a mid range chip Samsung are clearly attributing better multitasking to more RAM. So we in Europe are being short changed when their flagships only come with 4GB and when it is only for select markets that is clearly discrimination.
"Galaxy C9 Pro is the first Samsung smartphone to pack in 6GB RAM, powered by Snapdragon 653 and 1.95GHz octa-core processors, for an immediate capacity boost. More powerful than others, this device puts a world of multitasking options at your fingertips."
JoHei, 03 Feb 2017i needed to reply, RAM MEANS JACK SHIT. it doesnt tell how good a phone is. its all in the SoC.Then why are their different variants at all? If RAM means nothing there is no need and all those manufacturers must be wrong including Samsung themselves. And if it is all about the SoC why are maufacturers selling mid range phones with 6gb of RAM now?
JoHei, 03 Feb 2017i needed to reply, RAM MEANS JACK SHIT. it doesnt tell how good a phone is. its all in the SoC.Not in the future, when Android gets more and more complex, dropping support for this phone early, when compared to other manufacturers that have moved on to 6 gigs of RAM. Not to mention Samsung's heavy software, and lack of optimization for it. Plus, it makes phones a lot less comparable, since a phone with more RAM at the same price is the better deal
