I am waiting for a rev... nahhh.. I will get Xperia XZ Premium instead.
I know the S8 is an amazing phone, screen is gorgeous, camera is top notch, build quality very good...
But that fingerprint sensor location, really hate it in the back. Not happy in putting it in the back, they even located it to the side of the camera, worst location ever. That coupled with doubts about battery life means i'll hold on some more months for other flagships or even the OP4...
It is the most screen-body ratio phone out there. The best hardware, best screen, arguably the best camera. But I believe Samsung could offer more for this price, considering Note 7 disaster. They make this beauty to distract people. I'll wait for Samsung's best offering (only if I can afford).
amazingly, 20 percent pre-ordered already. nah, I'll have to wait for the reviews or other phones. it is too pricey as I can buy two S7/edge for the new S8's.
I don't even like my S7 edge thanks to laggy TouchWiz and the resistive-like touch response of the capacitive screen, so why should I get another one like it? Wasting money away if you asked me. I don't trust Samsung anymore. Thinking of selling both my Note 3 and S7e this week.
Then wait for something better to come along without any lame glass rears. If V30 keeps removable battery unlike the G6, then I will go LG again. If the Nokia 8 is impressive with its cam, I will go with it. If Pixel 2 has a better design, I will go with it.
So many options. Samsung isn't the only Android show in the world. And they aren't always the best at it either. Google, LG, Nokia, Motorola, Sony, HTC, Huawei/Honor, OPPO/OnePlus, Xiaomi ZTE, and many others are just as good with value and features...
My favs -
Google (Android Mastermind)
Want to add a Sony and Huawei into my collection of phones. Maybe an Oppo/OnePlus as well. Already own a Xiaomi. Samsung and Apple aren't even Top 5 for me.
No. I want to see reviews first and then wait for the international unlocked, carrier untouched version that doesn't have to wait months and months for carrier approval of updates and security patches.
No order for one here.
Waiting for something else like Nokia 6 or 8.
I was waiting in anticipation for the S8 to replace the empty space where my Note7 should be, But alas it doesn't bring enough for me to part with my money.
I was saddened to hear that Samsung is making 6 GB ram versions of S8's for the Chinese market and that angered me because I'm fed up of always being discriminated by Samsung here in Europe!
Samsung make up these excuses blah blah blah local competition etc, So your telling me we don't have 6 GB ram phones in Europe? Just lies by Samsung.
Sadly there no better phones on the market at the moment but I'm waiting to have a look at Nokia and Htcs offerings later this year or perhaps Samsung can get its act together with the Note 8.
-NEOPHYTE-, 02 Apr 2017No option for: "I would if I could afford it"And no option for "I'm still happy with my old phone"
Nope and it ain't gonna happen. There are so many better choices out there, especially with European prices.
No and i wouldnt do so anytime soon. 1st because pre-order gifts around here are virtually non-existent, 2nd because paying 930ÂÂ€ for a 64GB S8+ is utter madness (buying an Iphone around here is beyong madness at over 1100ÂÂ€ for the maximum capacity 7 Plus) and 3rd because there will eventually be better options out there and this phone wont look as mighty or beautiful when they outperform it in daily tasks.
It Would have been better if Gsm arena used a pic of group of phones in the forth pic..
Rather than G6 only,, they could hav add One Plus, Xiomi, Xperia and Other models pic also..
As giving a different dimension to the line it carries..
