I wish they made the devices less tall and kept the 16:9 ratio, even if it meant making the screen and device a little smaller.
I also wish they improved on the camera. I dont want dual cameras, it's a seasonal thing that brings nothing to the table and will look silly in a year. I want better image quality from the single, better camera - A better, bigger sensor would be perfect. Lack of camera upgrade is my biggest disappointment in this phone, next to not many upgrades compared to S7 in general and hiked up price. Im still internally debating between this and the S7 Edge. I was set on getting this, as Im on the S6 but it doesnt seem like I'd be getting much of an upgrade here too.

I at first was just going for the S8 because i thought the S8+ would be too big, But then i went to the store, and i compared the S8+ size to my Huawei P9+. And its pretty much the same size. The S8+ is actually NARROWER but a bit TALLER than my P9+. So i went for S8+ instead after seeing the how minor the difference was.
So please, to everyone trying to bash off the screen size being too large. The screen to Body ratio on these are insane. You have to take that into consideration. These phones are not REALLY that big as you might think they are. I was surprised that they were so "small" when i checked them out.
Take a trip to your dealer and see for yourself.

There is nothing wrong with their current review process, it's critical enough as it is. You want a flagship to get a special review, next year it's not a flagship anymore. And who is to say exactly what the definition of a flagship is? What if gsma decides to give a specific phone a normal review, but in your mind it's a flagship based on some random specs? All phones should be reviewed the same way, for consistency and simplicity.
some people know how to issue out what they feel here, but their critics don't make sense,
don't hate but congratulate. this is a nice phone, I must say.
Phone aside and I'm neither bashing nor praising it for now, but reviewer is getting really enthusiastic and a normal person can easily feel it. The gsmarena reviews aren't as neutral, non enthusiastic as they used to be.
Second thing which I already said some days ago and I had got support from other readers in replies and upvotes, that I think gsmarena should now review phones (and specially flagship phones) more critically. Because, as "The Verge" stated, "it is more difficult to make a bad phone than a good phone these days" even $100 redmi 4a is good enough, and an upper midrange phone is always many times more than enough. So flagships which are multiple times pricier should be analyzed critically... From spec comparison with current crop, it's predesser, quality of features.

In 2018, S7 family will receive Android O and then only security upgrades, so you'd have to upgrade if u want newer and better android builds.
Lumia 950/950XL camera is better. Way oversharpened and colours are off.
Back in Black! I like the return to black USB cables and black earphones after years of Apple-inspired white packages.
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
