Chunky, angular, huge. An ergonomical nightmare.
Add the lowest autonomy in this generation and probably worst camera two ... It already lost the big 3.
It probably has good performance, but even there it fails because the low ram ensures low longevity.
This phone in just a year would look ultra dated in both looks performance and battery life.
So this is not just a phone, it's an insult in the form of a phone. It's like Sony is telling us "you'd buy anything anyway, so we don't care to actually try" ... The answer is "no we are not, FU"

I.e. no continuous, uniform black look that would really have set off the device magnificently. My Z1C has that effect, don't know why they couldn't keep that going. Guess my choice is easy then....
guys, chills!!! . it's just a phone. it's not a sin if sony make a phone. it's their job as a phone manufacturer. you paid trolls are pathetic. sony don't need your permission if they want to make phones. almost 900

Jesse Clark, 21 May 2017It's a true successor of amazing S7, obviously it is better and provide considerable improveme... moreHeh, you're possibly trolling because you are not elaborating (trolls never elaborate).
But anyway, I will bite.
In which important ways is it an elaboration of S7 Edge?
The aspect ratio is a shot in the dark, it may work, it probably won't, especially as long as apps games and media won't support it.
The fingerpring sensor. This certainly can't be an elaboration as it's harder to reach and cannot be reached at all when the phone is sitting on a table.
The battery. Again this cannot be an elaboration. S7 Edge Exynos had 98h of battery life in GSMArena test. Battery life is always best when it's *more* ... you can never have a battery life that is less that is better because of that.
The performance. They're practically identical hardware wise (Exynos 8895 is 5-10% faster on average, same amount of ram). And while the software may be better optimized that's only because Samsung may chose that (they can well put it on S7E too)
How about the camera? In some thing it's better, in other worse. Dx0 Mark gives it the same score as last year for a reason. It's unclear whether that is an elaboration.
The screen? It's taller but displaymate did not find any significant difference between it and S7's. Even the density is pretty much the same. You get HDR, but that's of dubious purpose as it is doubtful that software will use it on phone. HDR is only somewhat useful on big screens, and even there it's not a night-day difference.
Bluetooth 5? OK, that's a good, but again with little support that's only a niche requirement. Certainly an elaboration, but a tiny one...
See where I'm going with this? S7 Edge may well be a better phone. It's unclear where S8 is *actually* better, in fact it's more clear where it's worse.

Jumbo, 20 May 2017DeepSea Black, Luminious Chrome, or wait for XZ1 Compact at IFA..? :)I wouldn't miss the amazing 5.5 4K HDR, that would even upscale the 1080 p to 4K.
For me I will go for the chrome one, deepsea black is great as well and it depends on you.
Check these videos and you can figure it out..

I'm willing to admit that the S8 is, overall, a more well-rounded phone than the XZP. But it has plenty of issues.. it's faaaaaarrr from perfect.
By your logic, as long as you never look at any other phone, the first one you pick is perfect. So why are you even here? You're ruining your own 'perfection'.

It still gives million other things other brands can only dream of. S8 is perfect because it's better than anything else out there.
mauw, 20 May 2017paid troll going nuts. relax, sony just release their phone. no need to be panicked. almost 90... moreactually you are the true troll,
accusing people troll just because they have different opinions.
why dont you just sit alone in the corner and play with your beloved lenovo?
NickiName, 20 May 2017Your S8 is perfect because it perfectly suits your needs in a smartphone, but doesn't crown it... moreSome of them are downright lies (the thing about the camera and the battery) and others are either gimmicks (nobody can see the difference between QHD and 4k in such a tiny screen) or commonplace at this point.
Basically that's exactly the issue with this phone. It's nothing spectacular and where it should be (battery, camera, even relative size) it fails.
It's not even about supporting Samsung (S8 is basically a taller S7, is should had been named S7T), it's about talking the truth to power (companies that think milking is an OK behavior).
