Curved edges - nothing useful, a gimmick, dust collector when used with screen protector/case.

None of the so called 'progressive' ideas as any good, till the time they improve iOS
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2017This Mini rumour appears every year. Rumours also claimed that S6, S7, and S8 all were suppose... moreTrue. With infinity displays they can get a 5 inch screen within a very small form factor.

But still it was quite beast when compared to S5 ...
The only thing that I haven't like about Alpha was it's Battery (1800Mah), and Samsung didn't provided update to it after Lollipop 5.0.2 ...

Apple has just released the greatest upgrade in phone technology (between generations) since forever
Also most previous Galaxy S phones.
Galaxy S8 along with Galaxy S6 stand as a rare example of a phone even making steps back than its predecessor. It's looking to make less sales than S6 at this point... Samsung is defunding their mobile division it seems (or there's waaay too much corruption)
Imperator Neubaticus, 15 Nov 2017Lol what alternate world do you live in? I have to ask *you* that. You probably didn't pay attention when S8 was released:
Less battery than S7 edge: https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s8-review-1603p3.php
Pretty much same performance: https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s8-review-1603p6.php
Marginally better camera (88 vs 87): https://www.dxomark.com/samsung-galaxy-s8-mobile-review-high-photo-potential/
Exquisitely similar image quality: http://www.displaymate.com/Galaxy_S8_ShootOut_01.htm
Worse fingerprint sensor placing (in the back)
So which universe are *you* living? Were you not paying attention when the phone was released? No wonder it's a flop in sales.
Hopefully it doesn't have a lot of problems and gets abandoned after 1 software update like their last powerful small phone - the Galaxy Alpha.
This Mini rumour appears every year. Rumours also claimed that S6, S7, and S8 all were supposed to get a Mini version, but we have not seen anything.
Mini = crappy quality phone. Get the a model and you get better hw for the same price. Sony are sadly enough the only brand who makes a mini without lowering the hw and still has a wallet friendly price.
Just make a blue international variant. WITH the E9810 everywhere except US! (They are forced in the US to do so).
But seriously I love compact phones like phablets, but I have a tablet so I really look forward to that S9 Mini.
SwaggyP, 15 Nov 2017It was the day they elected it to be a tall S7. Typically new generations have to be better... moreTell me 1 company that did significant improvement over previous generation. S7 is already a good phone. There is not much samsung can do to improve too much over S7.
There was a day that 5" galaxy note1 was to big to be used. Still thx for SS to open the world of phablet.
I'll believe it when I see it; I've been hoping for a mini version of Samsung's flagships for several years now and every year there's a rumor that one will finally be made by Samsung but it never pans out! My S7 is still going strong so I'll wait till March with fingers crossed that 2018 will be the year the Galaxy Mini will materialize.
SwaggyP, 15 Nov 2017It's called the iPhone (iPhone X is 5inch sized as well). Where do you think Apple is makin... moreIphone x is 5.8 iirc. 5 means 5, not that our 4.7 inch device was ginormous anyways so we removed the bezels, made it a bit bigger to make it compact like our "5" phones would be with bezels
