Will the hard reset occur if I temporarily switch to another carrier's SIM card (while I travel to overseas) and when I switch back?
I'm wondering what the difference is and whether it's worth making a replacement. Between 7 edgs and 8 plus
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2017Yes I agree with youIf you have a Samsung Tv and devices connected to it you can use your phone to control any of those devices. Soon they will have a new O.S. in September and you will be able to control any of your Samsung devices. I think that's why they took out the I.R. blaster. But it works flawless for me. I can even navigate my PS4 with my S7 Edge

Changing the CSC on a Samsung phone always results in a factory reset. It is one of the reasons that carrier employees are supposed to insert the SIM card into the phone before giving it to the customer in the store. For those who receive their phone by mail, unfortunately there is no warning. A good rule of thumb for Samsung phones (and probably a good idea for all Android phones in general) is to always insert the SIM card before doing any setup of any sort.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2017The display is a little more than 2k and less than 4kThe QHD+ 2960×1440 display is almost 3K (3072 x 1536). Definitely better than any other flagship that still using regular QHD (2560x1440).

Joselius, 15 Apr 2017Tech savvy person should know IR transmitter also sold for a cheap price that you can simply b... morewhy need to buy the IR blaster separately if it's easily built in on the phone like note 4 and earlier models, I'm just saying it'd be more handy if it's built in and i'm sure a good number of users out there would agree with me on this one.
S7 edge was priced at 56,900 in India. Its USD price was $799 and the exchange rate was ~67.5. So the premium was 5.5%.
S8+ is priced at $849 and the current exchange rate is 64.5. If the premium were kept the same, its new price should have been 57,900. But it has been priced at 64,900.
I wanna ask you abot Display
has this device using Ultra HD resolution and using Quad HD resolution or still usin' FullHD ???
Just got my new S8, spent a few hours setting everything up with WiFi....but as soon as I insert a SIM card in it, the phone did a hard reset and I lost everything. I then contact Samsung support and confirm that every time I switch SIM card, the phone will do a hard reset. This is very bad.
Mark_S, 19 Apr 2017Exactly my take on it as well.
S7 more sturdier build You are poor in maths
Just check dimensions
Both are same size
Only screen is bigger because bezels are much smallers
Way too expensive.
I bought S4 for 600Â€ in day of release. I won't pay for S8+ 900Â€ (prices in Ireland). I don't need pay for bixby, curved edges or their mistake with Note 7. Face recognition was introduced already in S4, also with IR blaster, barometer thermometer and few other things S8 doesn't have.

S8 costs 57,000 INR and S8+ costs 64,000 INR and it comes with Wireless Charger if you preorder.. samsung really sucks.. its not worth.. wireless charger is available on amazon of rs 990/- we would b fools if we buy or preorder samsung s8 / s8+.. and samsung decided no price cut for last generation models s7/ s7 edge.. but in other countries you can get s7 edge of rs 30,000/-
As far as generations pass I see more and more fragile phones. S8 is plenty powerful there is no doubt about that, but it's big and ugly for me. S7 is a beauty compared to this.
