He said that people prefer small and medium size phones like the iPhone 7.
I simply pointed out that the 5.7" S8 was pretty much the same device size as the 4.7" iPhone 7.

Even if the size of the phone is "small" because the phone has next to no bezels, those huge displays can still not be used with one hand, which is the point those of us who like smaller screens are making.

The 6.2" S8+ is actually smaller than the 5.5" iPhone 7+.
mmj321, 09 Feb 2017Mi5 has the worst battery performanceAnd also, you may be correct, but there is a correction.
"Although having a class leading 92h of endurance, Mi5 HAS THE WORST BATTERY LIFE (Your sentence) among all the xiaomi phones launched this year. "
mmj321, 09 Feb 2017Mi5 has the worst battery performanceWake up from sleep lol. Read mi5 Gsmarena review. Read the endurance rating.
All normal size flagships with 3000mah battery
1) Mi5 3000mah sd820, 5.2" 1080p LCD : 92h
2)LG G5 : 2800mah 5.3" QHD LCD : 60h
But don't make excuse for smaller battery coz
3)HTC 10 3000mah 5.2" QHD LCD : 66h
But don't make excuse for LCD screen coz
4)S7 ( always on display not activated) 3000mah 5.1" QHD
A) exynos 80h
B) sd820 70h
Now don't make excuses for QHD resolution coz
5)Xperia xz 2900mah SD821, 5.2" 1080p LCD : 74h
But you will say battery is 100mah small. So here is the example with 3000mah battery, 1080p AMOLED.
6)Oneplus3 3000mah 5.5" sd820, 5.5" AMOLED : 66h
But even with 13% larger battery,
8) Oneplus 3T 3400mah, 5.5 " 1080p AMOLED : 84h
And also, Mi5 s plus, 5.5" 1080p AMOLED have a huge 3800 mah battery and endurance rating 104h.
So you better lie somewhere else because it is Gsmarena.
Usually the processing power consumption is 20-30% of the battery life. New chip's 20% efficiency, probably benefits you 4-6% of extra battery life. The advantage of the new chip is to run faster with the same power consumption and not to save battery life.
On the contrary a 19:8 (6.2" screen) in the S8+ vs 16:9 (5.5" screen) in the S7 edge. It's a 20% increase in screen area. Unless they have a more efficient screen, i dont see improvement in battery life. Probably be like the S5 to S6 transition, where we see same to inferior battery life.
Reza musa1, 09 Feb 2017Why screen is so large? No more small phones with high end specs? Its getting bigger and bigge... moreThey said it won't get bigger (just smaller bezels). You say they are lying?
You have to see this different.
The new S8 will have a 5,8" screen, but because of the other ratio, the actual surface of the screen will be about ~5,4". This is because we measure screen size in diagonal.
The chipset will be (even) more power efficient and the screen will be too & because the screen isn't actually a lot bigger in terms of surface, and it will also be a bit more power efficient, the endurance will be about the same or a bit better than the S7. Mark my words.
There is no need to blabber about the note7 batteries.. samsung pushed the envilope too much for sake of maximising battery capacity per volume interms of internal separators and external compartment. otherwise sdi batteries are top tech and quality... now they might be too cautious and well back to low capacity.. although one hammer strike to an s7 easily blows it up
This time battery life is as important as performance. 3000 mAh for 5'8 of screen and 3500 mAh for 62 is quite unfortunate. Very bad at all. Increase it and make us happy using them.
So the S7 has 3000mah and has 5.1" and has a good battery life...now S8 with 5.8" has the same battery?? my god..
Why screen is so large? No more small phones with high end specs? Its getting bigger and bigger yet human's hand still the same size. I think many people still prefer medium or small size phones with same performance. Look at the iphone. Apple still make 4.7" screen size phone and people also prefer smaller size over the plus version which is 5.5"
Obi Wan Kenobi, 09 Feb 2017I wish Samsung would increase the battery capacity of the S8. True, the SD 835 might be very e... more4000 mAh Battery may be they will give in 2018 S9 or May be in 2019 For S Series..... Big brands not easily give big batteries..... Buy Lenovo or Xiaomi u will satisfy :)
Someone Else, 09 Feb 2017"And those things you list have exactly what significance to this article ?."
Lol. It doesn... moreAnd to the layman (who are the majority who buy phones), that means nothing either.
Large dimensions + large screen + small battery
Smaller dimensions + smaller screen + large battery (relatively).
Which is exactly what they will see, and what they will compare.
Oh, and have you seen a tare-down of the ZUK Z2 ?.
