2018 and still 4gb ram. 2/3 of the ram will be busy with the bloatware, that Samsung still haven't removed. Still 90+ bloatware on s8 and note8.
Mobilemaster, 12 Jan 2018I know, but Samsung sensors are good, and they HAVE a 24 MP sensor, it seems you did miss that news.Oh I forgot that one. It seems samsung choose the 12MP instead. IDK Why thou, the 24MP has smaller pixel and no mention of Dual Pixel tech. The "Tetracell" in 24MP sounds like binning that reduce the pic resolution, Kinda defeat the purpose of the higher resolution CMIIW.

Unfortunately stereo speakers and super slow motion are not new features
The phone shown us the s9...The s9+ will have 6 gig of ram and dual cameras

Just 4 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of storage? Well, if not for the obvious chipset difference, that setup looks similar to many midrangers.

You have to consider the sensor size, focal length, and optimization. Some phones have big MP but in turn they have bad lowlight photos due to higher noise compared to low MP camera.
Hm. Not seems to be a big update from the S8. I believe this should use that 24 MP camera sensor, and it should have a 3500 mAh battery at least. If the specs are almost the same it sounds bad to me.
Samsung needs to put at least 6GB RAM on this flagship one. 4GB RAM doesn't look more relevant in 2018 flagships while last year in 2017 most brands started at 6GB RAM on their flagship, even their Note8. If someone who looks on better user experience, I think Note8 is better than this one.
So glad I am not a fan of any brand whatsoever. When I read all these biased comments, some praising this phone and Sammy, some bashing it and Sammy, I don't even understand why people even state their opinion knowing they are fans of something, thus they are biased and don't see things objectively.
Simply put, this phone's front design is a result of form over function. The curved edges just look 'cool' and that's all. However, this makes the phone harder to use than one with a flat screen.
The back of the phone is nothing more than bland and one can say it's even downright unappealing. The rectangular shapes surrounding the camera, fp sensor, and the flash look like they were just applied there with no regards to function, design and aesthetics.
In terms of hardware... nothing is new there, really. And nothing that can distinguish this device from the crowds. (except the screen's form and shape - just as the iPhone X stands out from the crowds with its notch and full-body display)
Kiyasuriin, 12 Jan 2018Same with me.I was feared at first when they were just introduced. grabbed myself an S7E. and ... moreAh the good old trusty edge player and ss methods.....
Its something thats being taken for granted but in my case....i use it godknows how many times a day
And yes i love the edged display i always used a case before but the s8 feels too damn goood ugh ik im being very whats the word....uncareful ?
If you dont know what i mean take a case put it on the s8 hold it for a bit then remove it.....and youll se the worlds difference i mean so as careless as it is im going dbrand.....
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2018So why does the Note 8 from last year have 6GB?I don't know why.If that means, what I think it means, we're in trouble, big trouble
LG superfan, 12 Jan 2018Yeah hope this jack removing trend just die.soon and I forgot samsung so have fingerprint scan... moreNot calling any names here but its sad when they charge 1000 dollars and it does not even come with headphones / with basically crappy ones i mean cmon
If samsung and htc are going out of their way to include waaay better headphones why cant others too...
And for the life of me i cannot find an excuse for a fast charger not to be included besides profit margin....
And google what are you doing...i mean ik you have stereo speakers but most of us are always moving around and in public or in a crowded living quarters where we dont want to bother people and in that situation having a headphone jack and good headphones are a godsend sure you remove headphone
But atleast add some good headsets into it.....and googles supposed to be the best of android....why does it not have expandable memory.........gg this turned into a rant
