This step by step planned unveiling shouldn't be branded as leaks anymore. Too much leaks kills the excitement.
Even if none of my Samsung phones had annoying problems, I still wouldn't buy the S8. Not everyone likes the stupid curved screen, some people want a decent phone under $900! Or one you don't need palm rejection software that doesn't work to use. Hate it

Someone with good eyesight and a fully functioning brain actually commented!
Very very trendy, comparing to iphone thick bezel design - years ahead.
Comparing to Lg, class above with those edges and finish, still kudos to LG!
Headphone jack is a big plus for 95% of people - you can still use the Bluetooth if u want.
Nothing new really, even LG best them by launching similarly looking G6 2 months before Samsung.
I can't say if it's ugly, but not my kind of design.
There's really nothing new to the table, just more gimmicks at higher price.
OperationBlitz , 27 Feb 2017Hmmmmmm, After not getting my Note 7, I was hoping S8 plus would come with stylus and 6GB RAM,... moreAnd I actually quite like the xz premium. Looks like sony is finally making an effort again. If it goes well we might see an even better flagship next year.
And back to the S8. It is the new eye catcher with the great SoC and minor tweaks. And I think one of the biggest reasons will be the Note 8.
The note 8 will have 6 or 8gb or drr4x ram, possibly get the bump to 6.2 inch 4k hdr display, a possible revision of the exynos with slightly improved thermal performnace and maybe the improvements that arm already revised in the g71. With maybe a few more shader cores. And that new modem that supports many more radios that samsung was talking about.
As well as there will be some more of an update to the camera. What it will be we can't tell yet. I would love to imagine it will be that large 1/1.7 inch sensor with f1.4 but sadly it probably won't be that epic. But high chance there will be some higher level of optic improvements
And probably ufs 2.1 if not in the S8 already. With 64 or 128 internal options. They might even do 256 to go all out.
Sadly I don't see the projector of the Galaxy beam line betting merged yet.
OperationBlitz , 27 Feb 2017Hmmmmmm, After not getting my Note 7, I was hoping S8 plus would come with stylus and 6GB RAM,... moreWe don't know the entire specs yet for starters.
And while we wish it was more there is a nice detail to the ram. It's lpddr4x vs lpddr4. Consuming .6v compared to 1.1v. A power consumption cut off 45%.
Plus we don't know any details about the display and it's efficiency yet.
While it's not a large upgrade the SoC's alone will be nice hefty ones.
Audio should see a nice update on both S835 and Ex8895 as well.
Hmmmmmm, After not getting my Note 7, I was hoping S8 plus would come with stylus and 6GB RAM, even if no stylus at least 6GB RAM to keep me going till Note 8.
I have to say I don't find the LG6 or xperia xz or S8 appealing even more so now the S8 appears to have 4GB ram and a $1000 price tag. I may just have to wait out for the Note 8 as I won't do IPhones ever again.
What is really the problem with the curved displays? Yea, it is nice to try..but then it gets uncool pretty fast.
trolls,if you dont like samsung phone,then dont buy it,simple
hey but you guys wont stop cus that what you do for living,get a life
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017yes beast...ugly beastpeople said the same for s7.s6 or even s5 still it sell more then any android device,hence you are the only retard here trying to proove so hard that samsung phones are ugly which infact not,according to you which device is best?
They look nice but a bit weird. Didn't really understand why until I went to check the mix review. Mi mix used 17:9 screen, with the extra space for soft keys, s8 and g6 has 18:9 so they look really long and maybe will have black bars. I think xiaomi got the aspect ratio right, you imagine watching a 16:9 movie on these new phone. how to get rid of the black bars?
AnonD-625786, 27 Feb 2017My taste is fine, since I like beautiful devices like the P9 and P10. I just said that I like ... moredont worry,your opinion will be change once gs8 will be release.btw here what you are looking is actually a prototype even if its a actual device still the quality of video is so poor to determine whether the actual device really look good or not.wait for offical images and lauch then come back and say the same,i am sure you wont :)
btw ,you really comparing device been officially launch to that s8 ,here this short video it just give you an idea what the actual s8 will be ..sinal device will be much better..
it just look like you dont want to leave a oppurtunity to bash s8 and g6 to induce people to buy huwaei which will never happen. that look like shit..good luck purchasing them where majority of customer will enjoying their s8 ...
sorry for my english
