Samsung, please launch something just as good for the people who do not like curved screens !
It's kinda surprising to see the Galaxy S8 have a better or somewhat same Battery Endurance Rating as the Galaxy S7 considering the fact that both of these smartphones have 3000 mAh battery capacity but the GS7 only have a 5.1" display while the GS8 have a much bigger 5.8" display
I like Samsung flagship phones because of the premium build, amazing camera and amoled display but wait after a year when price go down half and their OS update will mess up your phone's features. My advice is Do Not update your Samsung device especially when your warranty has expired. Nowadays, phones are disposable even for flagships. When you have the money, go for it but if you want to spend wisely, look for other alternative flagships of Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo. Their sub $200 models are almost as good as most phones today and save your money. 😁

Also there is no such thing as a better screen, there is such a thing as a screen being better in certain parameters.
For example S8's aspect ratio is not just bad, it's horrible, probably the worst thing about the phone, it's very impractical one handed as it lengthens the distance between the notification area and the navigation bar. And while it was hard to use phones one handed in s8's case is plain impossible.
Also there is no content for it and will never be. It's such an irregular aspect ratio that literally serves no purpose and it was like a random decision made by a monkey. It's objectively bad, I guess it looks good to some people and it certainly pushes the diagonal size of the screen so it will seem bigger on paper but none of that actually helps the consumer.
Mi Mix's screen is more practical , with obviously worse colours but better gaming performance and that's that.

Any scre... moreApple, Steve Jobs, Tim Cook are no one to define a display technology, Retina display is a marketing term and just because Steve Jobs said so, it won't become a technological term. Retina is the lens of eye. AMOLED means Active Matrix Light emitting diode display. LCD is liquid crystal display which was popular in TVs before LEDs, Retina display is a marketing term used by Apple for its IPS LCD outdated display. If someone tried to fool people that our sharper displays have Retina display then they won't become any better, they'll stay what they are.
I'm so loving this... but sad to see all you kids throwing your good money to $ammy, again. All for another trashy so called Smartphone.
Ok, so we're up to want 7 or 8 reasons to NOT BUY A S8 or S8+ ....Glass, don't drop so very good, Red hues in the screens, Bixby took an extended vacation....
Dumb Clueless Cluckers !!
Oh well, after all it's only Money !!
jesse.clark, 26 Apr 2017So which display is better MI mix or S8? Displaymate has me covered. S8 in colours, Mi Mix in aspect ratio (least black bars) and resolution (much better game performance at native resolution).
S8 is a little sharper btw (not by much since its subpixel arrangement allows for fewer subpixels) when running at its native resolution. But few keep their phone closer than 8 inches (where you actually appreciate the difference)
jesse.clark, 26 Apr 2017Retina amoled? K go home.. LolDo you even read at this point? Retina is any screen with certain characteristics.
Any screen can be retina, if you actually bothered to watch 2010's Apple conference (you didn't ) you would see that the term was meant for any screen that could be as sharp as iphone 4's. Apple though they would have "retina monopoly" for years ... they were wrong, by late next year we got the first 720P phones which brought the retina quality to androids.
So yes! Retina amoled, which as opposed to retina IPS needs to be 1080p not 720P due to the lower subpixel count.
jesse.clark, 26 Apr 2017So samsung, LG and Sony phones also have retina display according to your theory? And what's a... moreAs for the two screens in question. They're very much alike for a 20/20 person "detail wise". Color wise the Samsung is better. So already S4's resolution was more than good enough, where it needed a boost was the colors and (in fact) brightness, which is why the S8 is the best screen.
Also S8's screen is nowhere near, it's almost 3k in fact (QHD+). 2k means that your "big" resolution is in the ballpark of 2000, so not 2100, nor 1900. The film standard define 2048x1080 as "2k" (and 4096x2016 as "4k"). The widescreen (16:9) equivalent to 2k is 1080p (same amount of vertical pixels). So the S4/S5 screens are the closest Samsung ever did to having 2k phones. In fact the only phone to actually have a 2k screen is the Xiaomi Mi Mix as its 2080x1080 panel is pretty much equivalent to the specification.
Pretty much why Samsung should have gone for 17:9 too for their bezeless design, it would allow them to use film standard resolutions (2k, 4k) which would be useful for the movie apps as well as VR (if they were to use 4k).
jesse.clark, 26 Apr 2017So samsung, LG and Sony phones also have retina display according to your theory? And what's a... moreYes! That's exactly what I was writing if you had bothered to read my post (S4 was the first retina amoled), you only got triggered because you fail(ed) to read the context of my post, in that sense we're both paying your sin.
Also it's not just me, it's the general view that any screen can be retina, there are even websites dedicated in that: http://isthisretina.com/
The word is merely a handle to refer to an important phone concept! Again, where you living under a rock?

jesse.clark, 25 Apr 2017Are you defining your own meaning of Retina display? Jobs' literal quote:
"It turns out thereĀs a magic number right around 300 pixels per inch, that when you hold something around to 10 to 12 inches away from your eyes, is the limit of the human retina to differentiate the pixels."
It was later clarified further that Jobs meant 20/20 vision because the limit of 40/20 vision is about 2 times that at that distance.
You must be living under a rock to not know *any* of this and only know the source of the term (without actually knowing what it is defined to mean).
