Battery degrade ever so slightly over in use or not. That's a fact about batteries. All my use tabulation of three different smartphones and tablets I have used will ever perform slightly less every month. Just to show you an example:
Look at Cycles 1 to 8, and then 43, with similar data usage. The Note7 was great during the first week, that I could get over 8 hours Screen On Time. However, over a month later with similar data usage, my maximum could only go to 7 SOT.
That's a 12.5% difference in SOT with similar data usage, and all I do most of the time is music, YouTube and browsing. Never gaming.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017Even the average iphone has steteo.
A 1000 dollars phone does not.
There is no point of us... moreYup. The iPhone has two speakers so that makes it a better phone even though almost everything in the note is superior. And higher tech and more costly compared to the iPhone.
But the iPhone costs more with less deals... but it has two speakers

That is exaggeration, unless you charge hundreds of times within that one month. Any perception of reduction in battery capacity is because the battery meter requires recalibration.
AnonD-24741, 17 Sep 2017That's utter BS. Samsung's phones aren't aggressively shutting down background processes. You... moreIt is probabl my mistake to think that S phonnes contantly lose in tests like phonebuff's taht test ram retention.... Oh wait it doesn't. Samsung phones are literally the slowest in ohonebuff and C4etech. A buch of mid rangers win over them in every day tasks. Samsungs are the slowest phones this gen around both objectivly and aubsectively. They are good in benchmarks alone, but nobody runs benchmarks in real life or anything that looks like them ... so who cares.
Wait... "UFS cards support"?
Ok, I checked the Samsung official specs, and no mention of UFS cards support.
GSM Arena, please clarify this. I would want UFS cards support if it's really there.

Go back and read the display section of the S8 review for more information: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s8-review-1603p3.php

Note series identical with s pen. Nothing wrong with galaxy note since samsung put this series higher price than regular galaxy s series. If we are not afford to buy then don't buy. Simple isn't it?

I can accept that this website can give fair reviews because it also focus on smartphones that don't sell in the US, and gives recommendations on those including Sony. And over here u can have a much more precise review especially for camera unlike AA, since AA only shows the overall photo and don't talk about noisy artifacts and low-light performance regarding noise reduction either

Otherwise don't put words into the reviewers' mouths. They did say that the XA1 and XZ1 battery lives are good. And what does Sony have to do with this review? Too many overzealous Sony fans lurking on this website.
My S8 hasn't received a software update since long and it hangs a lot. Samsung phones are crap. That's it. I am moving to Nokia probably
tech reviews have become an absolute joke. If this were any other phone or manufacturer such as Sony the writer would have torn shreds off it about poor battery life, terrible ergonomics and a substandard camera performance in dark conditions (pointing your phone at an object that is blaring out a tonne of light is not a good test)
