O yeah, USB type C, that means I cannot use my existing VR headset with it and need to buy a new one with USB type C port. Great...
edgar7465, 03 Apr 2017Infrared is Good for universal remote control
Every appliances have their own remote control. Nobody needs a universal remote control!
We are living in a WiFi era, move on from infrared. It is only used for thermal camera and night vision.
Major design change after Samsung Galaxy S6,screen resolution ratio was kinda odd 18.5:9 but I still think this design looks really great and beautiful.Fingerprint scanner on the left side....No comment about it yet.
TCool, 03 Apr 2017Nobody needs infrared, we are living in a WiFi world.
Move on man!Infrared is Good for universal remote control
TCool, 03 Apr 2017Nobody needs infrared, we are living in a WiFi world. Move on man!dude, you know the function of it first of all?
6gb ram for China and 4gb for other countries bullshit. camera is too low for 1000$. Samsung won't make sale on this. disappointing
Disappointing specs, expected more from at least with a 6GB RAM and 128 GB ROM especially for 8+ that is what is offered in S7 Edge 128GB ROM (How come less in 8+ ???). Virtual button and finger sensor already available in Huawei Mate 8 and etc. Hopefully Note 8 would be able to offer better specs than S8 and S8+. :(
Cpt. Power, 02 Apr 2017Only an idiot will pay 200 eur more for an 8 mpix front camera instead of 5mpix a little upgra... moreS8 also has a Bigger Screen
Better Resolution (with a different aspect ratio)
Corning Gorilla Glass 5 (S7 has Corning Gorilla Glass 4)
3D Touch (Home button)
USB v3.1, and Type-C 1.0 Reversible Connector USB
It is also newer, meaning it has more priorities and upgrades, and looks much different from the S7.
What are you talking about now?
All the Note will have that the S8 or S8+ do not have is an even bigger screen (Said to be between 6.5 & 6.8 inch) and the SPen which can be useful but will cost around 300USD more than the S8+!
Only an idiot will pay 200 eur more for an 8 mpix front camera instead of 5mpix a little upgrade in GPU and Gorrila glass 5 instead of 4 and worse battery. Thats all the difference between S8+ and S7+ good luck samsung on finding those cowards.
this phone is too big..
i used it for 5 min...
watching movie and youtube was great.
display is super sharp. best display i ever seen.
s8 was perfect size.
1000$ for bezel less S7 edge, are you serious Samsung (0_0).... Lol
Akkhan, 02 Apr 2017Again Curved screen Curved, yes. But it is definitely not edge screen. You had seen the curved on Note7. It is less pronounce than S7. But the curved in S8 is even more flat than Note7. So, basically the curved is not really curved much. Its a flat curved. Every year Samsung made it flatter. You had seen the original curved on Note Edge. That one is a SLOPE. I also dont think S8 can do S6 'Edge-Lighting' feature when put face down on a table. Its too flat.
No infrared .... again.
Curved design ? Why ?
3500 mAh for 6.2 inch display ?
Samsung would better make toasters than phones.
Maaz, 02 Apr 2017New design with almost S7 egde specifications.so i will wait for Note 8according to specs packed with snapdragon 835 it will devastate S7 and S7 edge and even iphone 7plus performance wise, 1Gbps over LTE speed , superb sound engine , 2x2 channel wifi, bt 5.0, wireless charging and amazing screen to body ratio, you know what dont get Samsung anymore switch to Motorola, their CEO said people dont care about specs cpu speed they want experience if you such of person you will love Moto
kmjema, 02 Apr 2017 I'm one of many users that believe on Samsung devices. but of late I have been asking myself... moreAgreed, despite my previous comment on how awesome the S8 is (got a hands on), I have a Note 5 (US edition) and still no upgrade to 7.0. Just like American car companies, phone makers (even Apple really) want you to get the next new thing, so they intentionally make the old models go obsolete. The solution is to vote with your wallet as you have done, and Samsung will learn the lesson. Blackberry could also earn business users like you their respect by going back to what they did best which was business focused hardware with a reliable OS and support.
I'm one of many users that believe on Samsung devices. but of late I have been asking myself why I'm I buying these devices. I recently switched a company of 1000 users from Samsung Tablets and Phones for apple products. The main reason is your after purchase support is horrible. I'm not talking about screen cracks or warrant repairs. I'm talking about software support. I have used all the Samsung Galaxy devices from S1 to S7, on top of that I had all the Notes devices expect Note 7 for obvious reasons; but for all the Samsung devices I have own none of them have received software update to the latest version of Android. I don't expect Samsung to update S1 to Nougat, but S6, S7 , Note 4, Note 5 the hardware is capable of running Android 7.0 My S7 is still running 6.0.1 with December 2016 Android patch level. These days android is releasing patches to the operating system on monthly bases. When are we going to get Jan 2017 patch, Feb 2017 patch and now March patch; leave alone the 7.0 update?
I wonder would I really recommend the business to buy S8 or S8+, knowing that the device will never get the latest software update? or I rather tell them to go with the products from the other manufacturers.
These patches are essential to ensuring that the users information is secure and not venerable to attacks and yet we are sitting with 3 months old patches.
It's really disappointing when you hear other devices are getting the updates and us with S7's we are sitting with the three year old OS.
Will the S8 and S8+ get Android O, or you will have to buy the new device to get that software update.
