just a bezeless new design with bigger and different unconventional aspect screen.
Kaku Diego, 29 Mar 2017Why no one talks about the stupid position of the fingerprint scanner?very stupid indeed specially for the + model, i'll rather have it on the center or on the side, they should have inovated and put it enveded on the display. BTW the same camera with software improvement... really Samsung..really who are you Apple (i actually like both apple and samusng so no hate), i hope they improve it for the Note 8.

The LG G6 is literally exactly like the S8, just with a better DAC, slightly worse processor, bigger battery, and none of Samsung's propriety bloatware/gimmicks.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2017How come it is same size though it says 5"8 and 6"2? I'm confused. The taller aspect ratio. Screens aren't measured from one side to the other, but from the bottom corner, to the opposite top corner, not just for smartphones, but every screened device. What the S8 gains in height, it shaves of from the sides, making it similar in size to last year's phones
/Aux-, 29 Mar 2017start to rip your pocket this monster phone comes with a monster size and with a monster pric... moreThe size is one area I am not complaining. It is 2017, people. Get used to it already. WE had 3-4 years to adapt to it. If you don't like it, go back to 4-4.7" like it is 2013 again.
The S8 is shorter than my S7e and close to the same size as my G5 and newer G6. The S8+ is the size as the iPhone 7 Plus but with a 0.6" larger display. Same height as the V20 with 5.7".
I despise iOS as I am Team Google FANDROID since 2012. But I predict the iPhone Edition will have the better size for one-handed use if it can pack 5.5" into the height of the 4.7" iPhone 7.
My max height is where the Pixel is at. About 143mm. I feel very comfortable holding it compared to my S7e and G5. iPhone Edition will be shorter them all...
battery sucks, no dual camera, no wide angle, fingerprint bad area, no audio chip, just good design,,
skip S8,, wait lg v30 let see..
You say that the speaker is still mono but you mention stereo speakers in your specifications page...
Nothing groundbreaking like when the Galaxy S7 was introduced, it had the best camera with latest technology ( f/1.7, dual pixel autofocus). Edge screen is just a gimmick too and is Very hard to use

Last year's flagships are still better than this year's.
LG G5 - Underrated. No smudge-prone rear. Last G to have removable batt.
Samsung S7 edge - Better design and color options. No two tone colors. 3500 mAh vs 3000 mAh to the S8. Regular S7 flat was perfect size in height.
I also believe Google will remove the 3.5mm with the Pixel 2. Feels netter owning the 1st Gphone too.
Honestly folks, just wait six months for a price drop. Many of last year's flagships can hold up for a solid 3+ years except for battery degradation. Get S8 only if it came with a ton more freebies, trade-in, or discounts.
I feel 2017 is as disappointing as 2015 when it comes to mobile. I have a trio of flagships from 2010, 2013, and 2016. The gains from 2010 to 2013 were definitely greater than from 2013 to 2016. Probably won't see much improvements until 2019-2020 when purchasing some more phones again for the next decade.
I see nothing truly impressive from the S8 that I didn't see from the S7 a year ago. I don't even like my overrated S7 edge that much either because of the software skin, terrible Gear VR experience, and annoying edged screen when typing. Just typing this message while typing is annoying me. Prefer my G5 the best for typing.
Would only get S8 if there was a free trade-in for it involving the S7e. Then I would sell the S8 for cash and wait for the iPhone Edition, Galaxy X, or Pixel 3 or 4. Avoid S8 software like the plague. Samsung makes Android look bad with lag.
diya patil, 29 Mar 2017lg g6 much better than s8 and s8+ iwill go with lg g6Riiiiiiiiiight
This and that (who you are cheating with that docking station which is the same as Note2 dock-2 USB, HDMI, 3.5mm on a dock is old news from 4 years ago) in a 1280-EURO phone which is good until falling on a concrete rough road or gives the soul of a battery and loses IP protection after battery is replaced. A BIG NO SIR! If it had titanium body(and back) and replaceable battery at this price, I would still think.
diya patil, 29 Mar 2017lg g6 much better than s8 and s8+ iwill go with lg g6how is the lg g6 better?
Xain47, 29 Mar 2017So all you get is a bigger screen which isn't exactly big as it is extremely narrow and.......... morenew SoC, bigger nonconventional ratio hdr screen, and iris scanner from 2 years ago that does same function as fp scanner, now placed there on the back now to smudge the camera some more... for 800.
Oh, and theres an extra button for samsungs google assistant iterration.
