I go for team S8, although its not that big but its also not that small since its just a normal size for a phone. when it comes to Specs also, S8+ doesn't have that much more compare to the normal S8. S8 was just the "perfect handset", Not much nor Less.
nope after all these years of using so so many phones since nokia, blackberry, iphones, androids finally come down to this that is in android need phone with biggest highest battery life & very less bloatware and as all the apps are becoming so resource hungry you need 256gb memory, over 6gb ram & also slim somewhat water resistant & a strong phone, they are manufacturing glass phones that are so sensitive they break so easily for making money
truth is better than samsung phones are Huawei in android & Xiomi Mi Mix is best
Neither.... I want a Note 8 with FHD screen, 4000mAh battery and back to sensible centered fingerprint scanner.
Or if that fails then just maybe an AGM X2.
I would prefer same hardware at a lower price 5.8 screen size if more than enough for my needs. Yes battery is bigger in S8+ but I fill Kryo 280 is power efficient and S8 will not let me down on that. Additional cost for 500mh and .4 inch is too high in India for S8+.
I wouldn't go for either one, the phone just not justify the huge price, and I'm not satisfied with the build.
I have a OnePlus 3 since Q3 of last year and there haven't been a phone yet that would make me upgrade.
I own a S8. Simply because it fits in my pocket easily and the screen is big enough to enjoy any app you want to use. I tried a bigger phone before (Xperia Z5 premium) and had to constantly hold it into my hands because it wouldn't fit in my pocket, particularly when sitting. So I can't advise potential owner more strongly: unless you always carry a bag, go for the S8 (or similar sized phone) or you will regret it.
Neither! hate those ugly edges, wish they had made a flat variant like the S7
I definitely looking for other brands and won't chooce between these two crap.
Btw, I also know repair score on the iFIXIT is 4/10 for these 2 crap.
I won't go for samsung any more...because my s6 edge suffer me...
[deleted post]Then they just proved how immature they are to not be able to handle a reasonable and justifiable hate
NEITHER! I want the Note 7 back. Plus I bet finding a tempered glass screen protector for on the the new s8's will probably be nearly impossible.

They look good but make the device fragile, reduce screen area and aren't as easy to use.
My S8+ hasn't had any accidental edge presses. My GN7 had plenty.
Samsung has obviously tweaked the OS.
I would like a flat GN8 but it won't happen. Hopefully Samsung go back to the 16:9 screen ratio though.

Now were back to curve screens?

They distort the edges of movies, images, and text, and are basically fatally flawed. It's just stupid, but people have bought into it. It's like "The Emperor's New Clothes" but in real life! Quick bit of trivia. The 6.2" S8+ display only has 7% more screen area than the 5.7" Note 5, due to the weird 2.06:1 aspect ratio the S8+ has. But if you subtract out the ~10% of curved area that is only good for edge apps, the Note 5 ends up having 3% greater *usable* screen area. 6.2" display is yet another gimmick applied to the S8+. The same goes for the S8 at a nominal 5.8", but in miniature.
Should have another option like "i looking for other brands" or "finding a much better phone than this"
Because i like some kind of compact phones and the size of the S8 -the small one- seems pretty good
Most people are only using 10% of a phone's potential while this S8 is only 10% of an improvement from its predecessor.
I can easily sell my titanium silver S7 edge which still looks better than this S8 (elongated Nexus S/Galaxy Nexus) for $380 and get the S8 for half off? But why bother? Spending another $350+ for 10% improvement?
Samsung still hasn't improved its software. OnePlus 5 will probably be better and not solely on its price. The camera would be decent and not $300 worse than the S8. It will have 6gb or more of RAM. And it will be flat screen with a metal back over a glass one.
Keep getting duped by looks, Samsung nerds. I remember the days when I never worried about design and only cared about performance. Like my ugly but super reliable Nintendo Game Boy or Nokia 3310. Now we live in this useless, shallow era with our tools.
Stondec100, 23 Apr 2017Samsung produces the most functional mobile devices and I can't possibly seem myself using any... moreSamsung no longer supports the Note 7, surprised they've not shut you down. The iPhone also lags, just not noticeably and the most comparable android phone in that respect is the Pixel/Pixel Xl or Nexus phones being pure android. Then again, IOS is fairly simple and does not often do the heavy lifting/multi tasking android phones do.
Just picked up my S8+, keeping my Pixel XL too until they release GP XL 2 and no lags noticed so far.
I think for me, it is about the Pixel and Samsung these days all other phones simply have too many flaws with little by way of compensating features. However, that is me and each person would have their own views/preferences which makes the world go round. Whatever you choose, enjoy it!

The curve actually helps the handling of the phone, it just feels more natural. As for the fingerprint scanner, its fine on the back and I use the iris scanner most of the time. Having the combination is far better than just a FP scanner on the front and huge ugly bezels.
