Anonymous, 15 Aug 2017The sad part is sony outs always so close yet so far. Holding themselves backAgreed. Personally I find their designs tempting; their phones are "cool with their own personality. But I wouldn't pick a Xperia on my 7+. I mean, I appreciate the work they made on their EIS algorithm and how it can compete with optically stabilized cameras in video footage, but I rather have the latter one for low light photography.. and the UI is slightly above minimum.. They should recruit younger people In their mobile division, you know, people with knowledge of what people want today. It might improve things for them drastically.

My point wasn't about camera sensors, it was about Chinese brands making those sensors into good use to produce stellar photography!! And for your information Huawei flagship nowdays use Leica sensors.
Sony XZp was best in MWC
Today, in this thing awards GS8
Board of scores: XZp vs GS8 ---> 1:1 draw
Bossman, 15 Aug 2017The HTC u11 has the best camera in every reviewIt has its advantages. Not a straight win
AnonD-615118, 15 Aug 2017how can they give the galaxy s8 an award for best smartphone.
clearly the xz premium takes ... moreNo one's smiling, actually the award's been given, reviewers gave their opinions about the overall design and camera department of the S8; unsurprisingly it's better than your so called XZ Premium. Oh yeah, why aren't Sony flagships topping Apple/Huawei/Samsung's flagships' sales of it's a "giant company" like you claim.
All I see is a Sony fanboy fantasizing and living in a parallel world.
"Who's smiling now?"
AnonD-669148, 15 Aug 2017How much did Samsung pay for that title?Lots actually. It's taken years and years of tons of money into research and development, factories, royalties, saleries, etc etc
AnonD-669148, 15 Aug 2017How much did Samsung pay for that title?I know how you feel, but Samaung did not pay anything for the awards. I would like to clarify things a bit to clear the misunderstanding. Fyi, European invested in Samsung a lot, so it makes sense that Samsung will be awarded to glorify WESTERN influence in politics and economic. I am pretty sure Lg is one them and some other Chinese brand.
AnonD-145316, 15 Aug 2017What kind of reviews do you watch my friend!? Please don't be on denial just accept that a Chi... moreI myself would gladly point that our to everyone if it were true.
It just simply isnt. Get over it
I bought s8 three month before .. now regretting. Apart from the display nothing is good.
Dont know why samsung tries so hard to make the UX laggy .. do they have research team to bring lag in UI ? Also I feel they make redundant apps (already available from Google, and Google makes elegant app). Did know know one hardware button (Bixby) can be so annoying. Can't change the phone (already paid a lot for that).... If you dont believe do this -
1) in app drawer tap search - brings the keyboard after few second (if samsung keyboard is selected)
2)Do the same when Google Keyboard selected - you will feel less lag
3)Now download any app launcher - which has search option (like Nova) - you will feel even less lag
4) Now get a iPhone tap search bar - oops did not know mobile os can be that fast
:-( - I have put my phone on olx
95% of reviews say the same thing..the best phone there is is galaxy s8 and there's clear reason for it...s8 has so many SW hidden features, better ecosystem than any other android(I control and mirror my tv with s8), best continuity in android, most gadgets to play with like gear vr 360.., most availability of extras like case, PLUS display design extra features like samsung pay customization....honestly, nothing can touch Samsung in android...simply because the scale samsung is playing is a lot bigger

Sometimes i accidentally minimize an app, screen protector works fine, and almost any case eliminates the minor touches. But yes they are more just for viewing pleasure. Ergonomics too though. And paving the way of future actually useful tech.

I only watch some of the most trusted YouTubers that r... moreThe only thing she ever usually confirms is frame drops in the ui. Not poor performance.
And every phone in existance will have lag
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2017I wonder how...
Best for taking photos? No
Best to recording videos? No
Can it record mo... moreFirst of all there is not one ornery phone that is all or most of those.
Next of course toy would deny the s8 could be any of those or leave out things it does have like display, features, first to use s830, and the exynos might actually have the best sound out of the crop.
