Omg S8 user now must be embrassed as later on people will see it as mid range phone lol.
This phone will have better battery life than the original S8, more power efficient CPU. General performance will probably feel about the same if you just tweak the phone software, like reducing animation, disable bloatwares and install Nova Launcher.
The only difference is gaming performance, but probably not either. Here's a revelation. I had a Moto Z Play that had a SD625, and a Moto Z that had SD820. The Moto Z Play managed to play games smoother overall. Why? The CPU didn't overheat, so it didn't have to throttle itself, and the phone didn't get super hot. Also I know that Samsung have a software feature that let you reduce the screen resolution to 720p, that will help too.
I hope this is just a 18.5:9 ratio screen, because to me the resolution sounds similar to 1080p phones with notch and chin.
It's a good phone even if it is 660 (it's a good upper midrange SoC). I like this one though and if it is priced from $400-450, this is a bang.
stivi737, 09 May 2018if you actually have ever tried the S8 you would have noticed that the fps placement is not as... moreAgree 100%. Totally over the top outrage about the fingerprint sensor position. It's not as bad as some would have you believe.
Many critics had to try and find something to say negative about the S8's in order to seem really balanced and the fingerprint sensor placement was about all they could find to talk about negatively. ..... and probably after a very short time of handling the phone with their preconceived opinions.
I suspect that many people just turned their nose up before even trying it out first for a period of time and hence all the constant whining. ........ and I suspect a bit of good old fashioned trolling added in for good measure.
Anonymous, 09 May 2018it could be great if priced correctlyyou couldn't be more right. with a SD660, an S-Amoled screen with 1080p resolution (that is really just fine, and super crisp considering that it is indeed oled), and with a price below 400Eur (the S8 goes for 480 on amazon now) it is an amazing device. Many people that do not have the budget for a S8 but love the design and understand that SD660 is inferior mostly only on GPU than the SD835, it would be a great deal

Smaller phone with bigger battery and 64/4 with SD660 and 350€ and i will buy......
it could be great if priced correctly
To me this is utmost stupidity and a waste of a good phone they need to focus on quality and not quantity just like a woman
What's the point of this if it's not a mini aka compact phone? We already have the S8 lite, it's called A8 2018.
