I have an S8 and I really appreciate it's battery, I am extremely dissatisfied on the S8+ , because it's bigger, yet has a smaller battery, the 835 could be more energy efficient, but it know has a bigger screen to feed, so overall it's a downgrade (and when I company claims energy efficiency, they calculate it on a standard task, without considering that the new chip has extra power, that will consume extra energy on demanding tasks, the battery will rank a 70+ hours for the S8 and 80+ for the S8+,a long way till the nearly 100hs the S7 edge had)... A couple of mm thicker wouldn't hurt anyone, apart from the iPhone junkies, who believe that 7.9 is final frontier for premium phones...
but why it is not note 8 , samsung made s8 which is enough the next big deal should be
note 8 as both phones s8 and s8+ are idiotically with the exception on screen size
S8+ will have battery issues that's my expectation, better wait and see what the user is saying once it is released.
I was really expecting a internal memory of 256GB its a real bummer dat it has only 128 Gb
Different screen aspect ratio than the S8 (1440x2560 px. vs. 1440x2960 px.)?
I suposse is 1440x2560 px. because is 16:9.
qasim umer saddal, 26 Feb 2017make 16m caamera 12m is very low
12 is just fine megapixels dont matter
4000 pixels wide and 3000 pixels tall is a 12 megapixel photo that more than enough
megapixels don't matter
the battery is fine because the snapdragon 835 is good at saving battery
Don't worry about the ram. 4gb is still more then enoug, 6gb would be a waste on devices at the moment. Making devices with 6gb is just showing of since the phone could never use full capacity. There would be no difference between a 6gb and 4gb at the moment. It would only suck battery life.
We have seen many examples off devices with better battery endurance with smaller batteries. A 3500mah can be better then a 4000mah. Device has to be tested before we can talk about that.
The same goes for megapixels, a higher megapixel doesnt always mean the pictures are of better quality.
The best thing about this device is the screen ratio, this is also the new hype. A small phone with big screen :)
AnonD-646111, 24 Feb 2017Specs according to me far S8 -6inch super amoled display -bluetooth 5.0 -2k screen resoluti... moreMr Mobile, Your specs is what i would expect also, but, we will get only 4GB of ram and only 3500mAh battery, at least for international version.
Only 4GB, only 3500mAh battery at 6.2, when S7Edge got 3600mAh.
The location/form of fingerprint sensor, really unpractical and ugly.
But consider all that, will be still considered a top 2 Flag ship of the year 17. So i will buy it :(
I use to own LG flex. Samsung is trying to follow suit. I am interested in what it will look like. But I am not really sold on the whole galaxy S8 plus. Seems like Samsung is trying to save face. Hope these phones don't go BOOM.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017I don't believe it lags. My old S5 and Note 4 never lagged. I find it hard to believe the S7 does.hard to believe?
