Not trading in my V20 for this new S8 for sure. After all both are android and will never offer smooth iphone like experience! V20 because of its dedicated dual sim + sd card slot and the secondary ticker screen can make up for S8 edge displays. Agreed V20 is not a stunner in looks as much as S8 but then its more durable. C'mon Sammy we are tired of all glass design, bring on some class leading innovation in build quality to complement the infinity display.

Oh duh. Who would have thought that after you did that once and got called out that you would actually come back to reality and get on point rather than just continue to side track, lie, and pass the blame....

I see -now- you're not making a statement again, so at this point it's simple trolling. You were vanquished so better run with your tail between your legs now...

S8+ has lower battery: absolutely correct, GSMarena shows that
Chinese phones are around the 100h mark: again factually correct, check GSMarena battery database
Planned obsolescence: absolutely correct, plenty of academic papers showing consumer electronics built to last a certain amount of time and if by accident they are initially ain't , they eventually regress to norm
Actually I have plenty of time in my hands and I'm widely read. I don't post anything that I haven't researched for dozens of hours at least. What is *your* excuse for slandering me, especially as you present no counter evidence?

And of course their software was good. But not this magic optimizing that their fans claim no different than the iOS users try to claim

Iphone feels (and is) quite faster. Basically you rarely have to wait for apps to load on an iPhone, you frequently do on a Samung, this is a quite noticeable difference.
Battery is quite good on Chinese phone (4000+ MaH phones), they're frequently getting 100+ hours on the GSMarena test. Also it was a solved problem on Samsungs too up until S5 (carry a spare and/or buy extended battery). Battery is only a problem because Samsung wants it so (for example S8 has a lower battery score than S7).
It *is* cutting corners. They figure they gain more by fewer sales yet greater margins. Of course that's a lose lose scenario for the consumers. They get less loaded phones for more money (we used to get fully loaded phones for less money)...
I just wish it was not so long.

i already bought
its very great but i am trying to give bixby any orders it doesn't work at all .
AnonD-635604, 22 Apr 2017How about camera.
Samsung Galaxy S8+ camera may be brighter than Xperia XZs.
Https://m.youtu... moreThe zoom was way better.
And it's nothing more than the Galaxy using a higher iso. That's all. Just use manual controls and a lower iso.
I mean oh no. There will be a software update
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2017first time mali GPU outperforms adreno's flagship GPUActually about the 6 or 7th time the Exynos has a gpu lead or lead through efficiency and less throttling

battery so small.. always look for charger. i think now day ppl are sick if they not charge the phone regularly.
first time mali GPU outperforms adreno's flagship GPU
AnonD-77443, 22 Apr 2017Sorry, dxomark says otherwise.
S7E scores 87
V20 scores 85
https://www.dxomark.com/Mobilesi do not care about dx whatever it is
v20 camera is better than s7
g6 is better than s8
Used to have many (only S line) samsung phones in the past. Not any more. S8 is nothing special. v30 will eat it. G6 is better value for money and better camera. P10 plus is also better than s8. I do not need bencharms and ranklists payed by samsung

say no moreHow about camera.

apart from the zoom someone should tell samsung that the night sky isn't orange :p
