I think s8 and s8+ are going to be gorgous phone but to me they did not worth the price of 1000$ they are copying the price of iphones small batteries ugly designs and i did not know how the white s8 will look with those f**ken sensors they should do something before releasing it lol
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2017Not worth it.I'm currently rocking a refurbished Note 4 at 250 USD and at no point within my u... moreS7 edge is overall better just because it lacks two features no company supports anymore doesn't make it any less true, I'd take the extra gig of RAM, better SoC, better camera, curved screen, IP68 water resistance and bigger battery over IR blaster and removable battery any day.
Rimas2, 27 Mar 2017Ridiculous prices. Wait till Samsung hits Amazon, it may be well over 1000$.If yall need a nice flagship with a honorable brand on it try SONY XZ PREMIUM or XZS, why so much resistance against SONY? at least they are capable of making their own quality earphones and don't need to beg other companies to supply it for them.
time to wave bye to samsung and apple and move to other high future potential brands... it's useless to argue dear fans for these two giants as they are seeing fans as numbers only
geordie81, 26 Mar 2017tbf you could just wait 6 weeks after initial launch and the price will drop, the price is alw... moreAt a start of Â€930 it's going to have to fall a loooong way before I think it's worth replacing my S6 Edge. What I'm after is that larger screen at a good resoultion. Most of the phablet sized phones seem to be stuck at 1920x1080, and of those that aren't, I'm not that enthused.
Good thing I'm patient.
Rediculous price and I am a Samsung fan too!. Who on earth do they think is going to splash this sort of cash even on subsided contracts where monthly payments will be around 60GBP. This is the end of me buying top of the range Sammy's. Am happy with the A series which to my mind has enough power, features and class at 30% of the price. The only people who will shell out this much are those who think they need a million gigs or Ram to order their next V**gra shipment! Honestly Samsung - after the Note & this will start your decline. Most people, even power users who love their smartphones, will not cough up this sort of wonga!
Smart price marketing to cover the the Note 7 fiasco loss congrats (irony)
Rimas2, 27 Mar 2017Ridiculous prices. Wait till Samsung hits Amazon, it may be well over 1000$.930 Euros = 1 010.7705 U.S. dollars
Alien, 27 Mar 2017XZ Premium from Sony is better and cheaperAgree...and people kept saying Sony charges high prices
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2017And haters say Sony or any other brand is overpriced but what now? This phone is the Ugliest o... moreNothing new? New chipset, no physical home button allowing for larger screen. It's not a legend but it's not got a total lack of change.
AnonD-643350, 26 Mar 2017So at least we two are luckier than others,a superb phone with a modest price,I'm with you in thisIf you consider $800 to be modest.
aceofgenerations, 27 Mar 2017There might be better value elsewhere, but there is not a better phone out there.Facts.
Jacky, 27 Mar 2017I think the only OEM that can charge above 700$ for a phone is Apple. No other manufacturer h... moreAnd for 5 years, Apple still hasn't got the most basic customization and freedom features of Android ever since it started. Starting from iOS 1.0 until today, which is iOS 10.3, and within that time range, where the heck is the ability to put an app everywhere on your homescreen? Where is the ability to change the look and feel of your device? Where is the Manual Camera settings? Yes, they don't exist, and they never will, because of how ignorantly greedy Apple is. Just because they support it for a long time, doesn't make it better than others who don't. iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has even less features than the original Android OS. If you want to go full support in Android, there's no beating of Sony. They supported their phones for 3 years (Xperia Z2 officially started at 4.2.2 and finished off at 6.0.1, and was supposedly gonna get 7.0.1 Nougat until Google restricted the use of it). Just because Samsung doesn't update their phones for a long time, doesn't mean others do so
It is useless using Apple as a benchmark. If Apple can charge 'x' for an iPhone, the S8 would be worth 2x at least, because it has Android and is therefore automatically superior.
The reason why S8 @900EUR is overpriced is because of other *Android* OEMs. Not Apple with their stupid iPhone which has no option but iOS!
