Anonymous, 21 May 2017Heh, you're possibly trolling because you are not elaborating (trolls never elaborate).
But... moreS8 is a huge improvement over S7 edge, the new aspect ratio is the next big thing and it's wrong that media doesn't support it. There's just one click and any cropped video changes to full screen while watching any video and it looks so amazing that you'll prefer to watch movies on phone instead of TV. There's just one click to turn videos, games or any app to full screen
About fingerprint placement I hate all phones having rear fingerprint scanner since the beginning but Samsung did it with a very valid reason, the bigger bezel less display makes up for it tho it couldn't if they didn't have provided another alternatives on the front, the iris scanner, the face recognition and the always on 3D touch home button which needs real pressing and is always present, the most beautiful thing is it gives you the illusion of having an under the screen fingerprint scanner if you are using iris or face recognition and it works even when your phone is lying flat on surface, just press the home button while looking at the phone and it'll unlock just like it used to be in S7,
battery- check the results which are better than any other phone ,
performance - its considerably faster than S7 and handles much more than it.
Don't just look at the specs, go to the phones website and look what's new, you'll find many things which weren't in S7.
[deleted post]I'm not even the same guy who bash Sony just to promote Samsung. He's a bona fide troll. I'm the real deal, I use argument when I'm laying waste this phone.
It's chunky, it's angular, it's hard to hold. It's an eyesore and hard to use. Those are for real.
This is not a good phone, GSMArena already found it the worst of the big 3 (G6, S8, XZ Premium)

My dad has it for 2 weeks and under heavy usage he have to charge it 2 times a day if you don't believe you can check with real user of s8 and I'm searching for a good one when they released (xzp,op5,u11) at least but not the s8.

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"
Reaper, 21 May 2017I wouldn't miss the amazing 5.5 4K HDR, that would even upscale the 1080 p to 4K. For me I ... moreSoo after watching the 2nd video.. it's as I feared from press pics.. the bezels are clearly distinguishable both top/bottom and sides on the black model when the screen is off. 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.

Fist time i read fan say they brand is Perfect OmaiGod funny.. still ok if say The Best but perfect is meeeh.. CEO of the company will also never say they smartphone is perfect :)
if so perfect why i need send back my note 7 last year lol -_-!!
also why s8 come out with problem if so perfect ? :)
i never heard doogee or leagoo need to ask customer return they phone back bcoz worry it will kababooom customer house :)
so no brand is perfect no matter from small or big company LOL
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.
