Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018in China they cant use google apps... and moreover s8 doesnt have SD845 chipsetYeah forgot china doesnt have google services
S8 isnt obselete just because it lacks SD845, SD835 is still great
Got a Mix 2, cracking phone. New one looks good but not enough to warrant an upgrade. Will wait for the next one. Xiaomi is a good unit.
average consumer, 27 Mar 2018Headphone jack is so useless that most flagships dont have them now, isnt that kinda wierd?Its useless so many manufactures remove the jack for now on. thats not wierd LOL.
No notch no buy :(
Notch is the latest trend....every phone should have one.
Releasing one without notch is a silly move
OP, 27 Mar 2018Amoled? I see you're a fan of screen burn lol. And these days, IP rating is so overrated - is ... moreOLED technology is simply better than LCD technology, whatever opinion you have about this two. Samsung's AMOLED panels are great. Only after more than two and half year I've started to seeing slight burn-in on my S6 and that's just because I mostly use my phone for texting these days and that's just like it's showing static picture all the time. Since then, Samsung's improving this tech all the time so I don't know what your problem is... I don't even considered phones without OLED screen, it's first thing that I look for and of course 3,5 mm jack.

It is a fact that 100% of AMOLED screens have burn-ins, unlike other display technologies which are immune to that. And it's true that ingress protection is useless. I mean, no one has it's phone on him/her all day, thus is very unlikely to face water and dust.
No 3.5mm jack
Below 4000mAh battery
5Mpix nosehair cam
= Style over substance. If you like the looks buy it, otherwise... meh.
Yolokeke, 27 Mar 2018No headphone jack > nobody cares. Sony does it > Omfg Sony u suck omgg (Sony preorde... moreCoz didn't those guys basically invent it? To think a company From which Steve jobs was inspired is now being inspired by his successor, well feels weird
A owner of Mi mix. When Mi mix was released it was different had sleepless night to get this phone and happy with it but sad thing is no Innovation left in smartphones, they upgrade every 6 months by twisting here and there. Was expecting xiaomi to up the game with mi mix 2s or whatever but I guess they are just now doing what other manufacturers are doing. Where is the crazy features Mi mix series is all about.
No headphone jack > nobody cares.
Sony does it > Omfg Sony u suck omgg
(Sony preorder xz 2 gives you free Bluetooth premium headphones)
the only thing that stands out is the 256/8 GB ROM/RAM (if that version is ever available)
If anyone was wondering...
