Also phones sell more during release *and* during the holidays. What is unfortunate for S8 is that by the time holidays came most players already had released better phones (iphone X, Pixel XL2 and Huawei Mate Pro for example).
I doubt it would sell more than S6 even when all is said and done. There is a reason why they're in a hurry to release the S9 (which seems to be a fail as well, but I digress).
I'm more excited to know or see more what the variable aperture cameras can do!
When samsung will wake-up? Still the same narrow phone and taller.it looks ugly when you talk is like a stick in your hands. Is really neccessary to pay extra for the same size! And guys do something with the battery, after few months it will struggle to keep the energy for one day no matter what they said.
Don't care for any phone that lacks S Pen so I really don't care about this phone except that it predicts most of what the Note 9 will bring to the table.
Love my Note 8 and can't wait to see the Note 9.
Ionix, 11 Feb 2018I hate side bezels! The S8 was pretty much perfect.Its far from that; since the S6 edge, the bending screen has been merely a tech travesty. A flat or slightly concave screen is perfect because your optical sensors are two points in space. Thy gave you an 'endless' screen but you cant actually use it all at once and the reflections on the side curves make the effective edges much thicker than in a flat screen phone.... and Im not even starting to talk about ergonomics...

Considering it was released on April 21. So may-july was it's first quarter. Besides phones sell during holiday season not during some other random dates..
It's not about the bezels, its mostly about the curve: the 'edge' screen was stupid from the start. Looks like it took samsung 3-4 years to get it, but since they're also a stubborn Asian giant that doesnt want to admit they screw up, this time they reduced the side curvature and increased a bit the bezels, so youre less likely to mistakenly press something while handling your phone.... Probably the S10 will have a totally or almost flat screen and the edge will be a design feature :P
And obviously we just can't simply forget all the ultra tough competition. To mention just the latest news/rumor/leak the Mi Mix 2S and all the others...
Well, basically it is obvious that there is more to say, clarify, etc. But in just a nutshell, the more thinner bezels the better.

That's exactly how much S6 sold.
S7 sold 60 million. So S8 is not even close to S7 in fact it's less than S6 (most possibly) and it most certainly less than anything after S2.
S8 was a failure and if S9 is only slightly better than it, it will fail too. Either has to be *much* better or Samsung is losing the flagship crown soon...
Lmao S8 and S8+ look better than the S9 and S9+.
Anyway, Sammy should hire more people for the updating service and should stop flooding the market with unnecessary and undesired low and mid-range phones.
They may be no 1 in sales but they are LAST when it comes to updates.
Instead, they try to fool you with those bloatware features nobody wants and uses..

Infact the S8 did sold better than almost all the S series phones, except the S4 which sold 80million. Hopefully this time it will sell better because of 2 things,the camera and the Iris scanner.

Almost all phones are exceeding 74mm width zone including my Nokia 6, which the width is 74.9mm. BTW, who told you that Samsung Galaxy S8 is 7.5mm thick?!! It's 8.5mm.
