Anonymous, 30 Apr 2017Will you buy a PC with 8g ram but you are unhappy and tell the store to change it to 4g ram?Desktop OS is much more advanced so yeah it's more useful for that platform than mobile OS's.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2017So please explain why extra RAM is only valid if you live in certain parts of the world?It's not about validity or discrimination but catering to a specific markets demand, China loves specs and that's what Samsung is giving them, if you really want one so bad you can always import this variant at a slightly higher price.
AnonD-666156, 01 May 2017Haha! 4K HDR on a phone, good one! I can't tell if you're trolling or not. You must be stoopid or something? Have you not heard of Sony Xperia XZ Premium which has the first 4K HDR screen!
So when you open your mouth next time I suggest you think before you let the words come out?!
Anyways my friends, As my point was stated, I don't think the S8 or S8 + has done enough to tempt me to buy it, So I shall save my money for the Note 8
Which I hope will come with:
4K screen and HDR would be good
Exynos 8995 or SD 835 which is probably a dead cert or 9 series.
Im hoping 6GB RAM or a timely 8GB RAM as Note 8.
Improved SPen software.
4000 MAH Battery
IR Blaster would be good.
High Speed wireless charging
A good set of AKG earbuds.

If you want to get the 6gb version, then move your ass to China or Hong Kong

Install any apps that can show all the stuff running in the background and there will be dozens of things. My current note 4 has 3GB of RAM and it reguarly has less than 1 GB free and frankly runs slowly and with issues all the time pretty much. So two plus years on 4GB is pretty much entry level to my mind and that is not accpeptable on a flagship phone that is currently just about the most expenisve phone you can buy. Then just to run salt in the wounds Samsung sell a 6 GB variant in some markets. They even have a mid range phone (C9 Pro) that they proudly boast will run better for having 6 GB of RAM. Then just to cap it all we have people in these forums trying to defend it!
please do regular s8 with 6gb ram and please be the exynos model not the 835 model. or both in the best case.

I just gave him a detailed explanation why 4GB cannot be enough and his only counterpoint was "this is BS" , I mean that's enough of an explanation. If you can't detail a position you're most possibly in the wrong.
Either that or he uses like 3 or 4 apps max, which makes him an eccentric.

Sindroid, 30 Apr 2017I think thats rubbish. 4GB is more than enough to run all phones today. 6GB is overkill and wa... moreThen you must be a strong minority. I literally know no-one that uses less than 10 apps total.
You're right, unused ram it useless ram, if you get even one app to reload then your phone is already operating over capacity and I *bet* you that even yours does.
People go into settings, see their "free" ram and think that anything they have opened only used so little. Actually Android is very aggressive when it senses that it is low in resources, which is pretty much most of the time in 4GB phones, and starts dropping assets from memory left and right. That's wasteful because you have to reload them back, it takes time and resources.
So yeah it may be a waste for you, for 99% of the people it isn't (especially those that use the big 4: Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and Snapchat, that eat ram like crazy).
To those saying Hong Kong and China are the same couldn't be more wrong. Hong Kong is exactly 99 years ahead of China, might have something to do with the 99 year lease to the British otherwise, yes, they probably would be the same today.

This is programmed obsolesce, to force you to buy a new phone with 6GB ram in the future.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017I agree with you on the finger print reader but the rest of your cons list is a joke.
4GB v... moreAll 6GB phones are vastly more performant than 4GB phones. It's really the single biggest difference in performance in the longest time. It makes sense too, one allows 2GB of free ram and the other 4GB ... that's doubling the effective ram. With apps like Facebook and messenger using up to 400MB when in the background you are *forced* to need more Ram sooner than later.
As it stands , using just 6 or 7 of the most popular apps of today can lead to depletion of RAM , that in turn means that 4GB phones reload *a lot*, not only that, when they need to do that they kill some background app first adding an additional delay.
6GB phones reload too but as it stands now only if you push them to their absolute limits (load like 10 games at the same time), most of the times though you get your app waiting for you in the background. That makes a huge difference especially in apps where progress matters, for example a game where you do not have to reload the save file, or a navigation app where you do not have to recreate a trip.
I have used 4GB and 6GB phones for extended periods of time and I gotta tell, while the best cameras are almost exclusively on 4GB phones I can't bear myself returning to that experience. The difference is so visible that none would ever do.
At this point Samsung is milking with terrible consequences to the end experience and that's just a fact, better not support her unless we are paid from her.
