Played safe with old battery technology .. Ok
Big screen ok
Bixby - lets see how this pans out - Or will this add to samis blotware!!
IP 68 - ok
Mono sound - really after buying Harman!!!!
Camera - - small upgrade
well sami you played it safe... nothing really cutting edge - you will get safe sales. This will not get you out of the Note 7 fiasco.
Do something really big and great with the Note 8 and then you will finally have a differentiation with Apple and will be better than apple

It's up to you to believe it or not. Don't care.
Someone Else, 30 Mar 2017Are we going to ignore the fact that the Galaxy S8 have Bixby AI, 84% screen-to-body ratio, Ir... moreI am regularly buying spare batteries for our Sam mobiles (which we all have at my family). Because after 1 year battery capacity drops too much, after 1.5 year it becomes a piece of sh.t (it swells like a balloon as well; I have seen 3-4mm swelling than the original battery thickness). All are original (fake ones swell much earlier and loses the sould after 6-7 months). The cause is Samsung batteries are BAD (made to die early). So, I don't believe 95% capacity preservation. After 2 year (at most) it will die totally. You will pay at least 100$ for battery replacement in the service (which will stay in the service over night or 2 days). You will worry about your precious data as well. After battery replacement all that IP68 will gone and phone will become a usual old dads phone. S8+ will be sold at 1280-EURO here (insanely high). This phone will be a big failure and only increase the customers of Apple.

Do you know how much time it takes for deciding the design and then manufacturing it with the production department and then giving birth to a whole new phone? Samsung has been working on this design way earlier than LG!
LG released its LG G6 earlier than Samsung that doesn't mean Samsung has copied LG's design concept! LOL!
Running an Excel on Android is NOT flawless. VBA macros doesn't run because other than the full Windows Office no other application supports Macros in Excel! Sad but true. SO, this phone with DeX can NOT replace your mighty PC. Other points:
-Just ask whether that Dex can support external hard drives or not. IT WON'T. That's why my Dock station for Note2 stays idle (it has 3 USB ports by the way but you can't connect even a single external harddisk due to power shortage. Note2 has 3100 mAh by the way). SO, as you see, it CAN NOT replace even a stupidly weak notebook.
Paying this much money on this phone which will become a paper weight after 3-4 years is dead investment if you don't have lots of money to throw. It is on par with iPhone 7 Plus 256GB price. It is just crazy.
Or one can get a Galaxy A7(2017), which where I live costs 490$. A much balanced overall phone than this stupid fragile piece of glass.

Highe... moreLOL, 960fps video recording is gimmick in my opinion because i never tried 120fps moreover 960fps.
Do you even know what is Hi Res Audio? Because most of Sony fans are snobs, so please answer me :-)
Yes it has bigger battery but it's powering 4K LCD display.
Ok Samsung, I quit. This is it. Enough already with your arrogance and ignorance in the name of innovation.
Camera quality is almost same. Battery life will be almost same. Screen quality is almost same. I'm never going to use Bixby anyway. Colors etc etc are also mostly same admittedly which a all excellent on s7. Don't think sound will be significantly better. Except those bezels and a new processor, nothing is exciting.And the finger scanner as rumors gone true beside camera looks very ugly like cheap chinese phone,noting new in this phone.
