look out at xiaomi mi6 for the competitors' list of samsung s8...
a lot of phones have better cameras
lg v20, g6, mate9, and many others
all cheaper than too expensive 900eur samsung

90% to perfect phone. For sure screen size > battery capacity. Disappointed!
Bunyip22, 19 Apr 2017Many phone companies would kill for an 88 hour battery life. The Xiaomi Mi 5 with SD820 and 3000 mAh battery gets 92h endurance, for just Â€200. :P
So nice.. I like it. I want this phone. Samsung Galaxy S8+. But how I got it???
pankaj, 19 Apr 2017galaxy s8 launched in india for 57900 Rupees ie 899 dollar. i think its overpricedIn Europe its 900Â€ wherever I look, dont know where rev found it for 850.
And plain is 800Â€.
Its a 100Â€ more than last year....
I really cant see a reason for price jump.
They just added that funny wide letterbox screen and a tiny tiny cam for iris scanner. And ask 100Â€ more from fans for it.
Even the rev didnt find it weird or suspect in any way to comment on that.
As a side note, Samsung's chipsets are becoming more and more mature. Not only it's capable of 120fps@4k (disabled to match the SD835) but also the modem, which was the final glory of Qualcomm is better on Exynos chips now. Makes me wonder why Samsung is still going SD835 in the US and cannibalizing variants with Exynos in the process, by matching the lowest common denominator.
On top of that, the beast mode didn't make the cut, as the SD835 doesn't clock higher than 2.45ghz and at increased voltage penalty at that. The Mangoose cores can reach 3ghz at stock voltage on most samples. I wonder if Samsung has to out variants with Qualcomm chips just in exchange for Qualcomm tech like Quick charge.
Corrections for your review:
- The power saving core on the Exynos is obviously A53, not A5
- The camera sensor is actually an entirely different model after all for both, the Sony and Samsung sensor variants. They have exactly the same specs, including size, but still.
- The Exynos was downclocked to match the SD835' performance on both core clusters, thus the battery results on it are apparently significantly better, just as was the case with the S7. I assume a comparison by you guys is in motion already so this is just something to keep in mind in the meantime.
- Samsung is unlikely to go dual cameras, luckily. Rumor is they wanted a bigger sensor from Sony instead, but couldn't get enough units, thus no progress. This phone has a lot of things where Samsung had cool plans but had to settle for less like this, just as with the fingerprint sensor and no bixby voice at launch.
Bunyip22, 19 Apr 2017Many phone companies would kill for an 88 hour battery life. I agree
lacp, 19 Apr 2017There are people who think that Sony still continues to beat the other technological companies... moreWhile many sony fans are way too much....I must say sony is the one that has been tailing and even in some cases beating samsung.
They have great tech and phones
skipping samsung this year again for its silly decisions first of all
5.8 should have been the larger of the two and the other one should be 5.1 inches secondly the battery life is not good at all
There are people who think that Sony still continues to beat the other technological companies and their technology is the best and the more advanced than the technology of any company, but, already Samsung surpassed Sony in technology there is some good 10 years and in importance even more years. The Samsung conglomerate and even Samsung Electronics beat Sony there are many years as technologically as financially.
