I don't like Samsung made the S8 exclusively black on the front. S9 probably goes back to the single tone colors.
Thanks to the improving VR experience with my Gear VR, I might just get another Samsung but it has to be 4K next out and more RAM. Probably won't happen until the S10.
I only like the Samsung S line for a few things...
Gear VR home theater/movie theater watching
I have thousands of films and many TV shows I haven't finished yet, so the goggles can hekpme focus on the content like I was actually inside the movie theater.
The Gear VR with the VR theaters really helped saved the S7e from being sold going from a D experience to about a B-. I really don't care about the Samsung skin and awkward curved display.
Now it won't bother me much with UI and texting or if it isn't black at the front since it usually will be connected to the Gear VR. I don't need to spend more money on Google Daydream VR.
VR P0RN saved the day.
S8 for 925$ and S8 Plus for 1075$ is "more affordable" now? Huh, ok.

Microsoft had the dex gimmick long before Samsung. No one cared. If you're at your pc you're going to use your pc and not the phone. It's a useless gimmick no one cared for then and certainly doesn't now.
Wireless isn't wireless. You can't pick up your phone while it's charging.
If I had that kind of money I'd wait for Note 8 or get iPhone red. Or bought 3 cheaper phones for my family.
Samsung is not reliable, they have issues. That's why I used to prefer Huawei, but now they hiked they prices.

The only reason for releasing new versions every year is to fool you... into buying a new expensive phone because you now feel your "old" phone from last year is outdated, even though it is really not!
A taller, longer diagonal, is not always the same as a "bigger" screen? A square is the biggest rectangle, while a tall/long/high screen with very long diagonal can be smaller than a wider screen. S8 have a long diagnal but actually has a smaller screen than a normal 5.8 inches screen!
Choeneqck, 03 Apr 2017Go and re-examine the phone. Oh hold it. Rub your eyes first before taking a second look :)I had s4, that has most of the "new" s8 features. I have s7, that have the same camera just without the new s8 mod. Ion battery that lasts longer and doesn't explode. So, where is the actual upgrade ?

Go and try to get a glimpse of the beauty you can never imagine to have. Go to Samsung S8 page and check out the phone+ the amazing dex which converts your phone to a full fledged desktop unlike other solutions which came earlier and the amazing fast wireless charger, things you can just dream to have... Beauty and the beast? S8 IS BOTH, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

Wireless charging will soon replace wired charging and next generation natural voice processing and image processing makes S8 the best. You can change the navigation keys in S8 too and it still got the experience of a physical home button incorporated under the display.
Definitely wait for multiple reviews, especially on battery life with a 5.8" screen being powered by a 3,000mah battery.
