I dont see any point switching to latest phone every new release... My first android phone was galaxy ace 2 and i had it for about 3-4 years, and last year i bought oneplus 3 and now i will keep it for about the same amount of time if not longer if everything is gonna work well. Actually i swapped to OP3 at good time as my galaxy ace 2 got hard bricked after 2 weeks. Phew.

"Galaxy S8 and S8+ won't face any supply issues"...just demand issues.
Wonder how many Refurd Note 7's they plan to sell? That would be an upgrade to some and probably at a killer price...
Very happy with my S7 edge. Dont see the need to uograde that little bit.
I just bought the 8 plus in orchid grey.but I wish uk had the coral blue

But the S7 edge already has a sizeable screen to begin with and now with a lower price. And the cameras are virtually identical. So its a much wiser choice for those who already have an S7 to skip this one for the S9 next year.
If a good deal comes around involving a trade-in or discount with additional freebies, I might get it and then sell it before I get a V30. The S8 is like what the iPhone 4 and iPhone 6 was. Look at the benchmarks. Very little improvement from the S7. The S8 will age badly like the iPhone 4 which was stuck with a single core CPU and weak GPU and the iPhone 6 which was stuck with 1gb of RAM.
They all sold well with the iPhone 6 being the best-selling iPhone ever. But had you waited another year, the 4s had dual core and 6s already doubled the RAM even if they look the same as their predecessor. Apple's tick years always is plagued with a -gate issue. The S9 will likely look similar to the S8 but with better internals. The S8 is perfect for people who aren't forward thinking.
S8 has the smallest upgrade ever in the S-line. Buy it but proceed with caution when the S9 will likely have 6gb RAM, 7nm SoC, better camera(s), and so on and so on. Rock with the tock. Don't stick with the tick.
