This is S 7.5 not even close to what i expected. These guys start to behave like apple. they removed home button added an iris sensor and took away 100mah.Will they remove the charger too? so we should use only wireless? ik its the future but....
Frank, 29 Mar 2017Ummm... no it's not. Compare the specs:
http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s7_edge-794... moreSame hardware though (if you own the exynos version the difference in performance is minimal).
Also S8+ is smaller when watching videos (huge black bars), so you're getting a smaller screen despite the added real estate when you watch media.
Lastly a smaller battery (compared to the size of the screen), despite being so much taller than S7 edge.
It would probably be a sold downgrade unless you *really* need the taller screen (because the screen is not actually wider, only taller resulting to the word aspect ratio).
G, 29 Mar 2017It may be 6.2 inches but it is only as big as the Galaxy S7 edge. Ummm... no it's not. Compare the specs:
S7 Edge: 5.5 inches (~76.1% screen-to-body ratio)
S8+: 6.2 inches (~84.0% screen-to-body ratio)
Seems like it's over half an inch bigger to me, plus more screen-to-body ratio allows the viewing area to be bigger. I have an S7 Edge and I'm considering upgrading to this. It's a much bigger screen comparatively.
This is a flagship phone. I wondered why Samsung still sticking with 4gb ram instead of 6gb. A very miscalculated step indeed on this part. There are also the camera n battery which need addressing too. Things should evolve and getting better, not going backward.

The more efficient components will mean more battery life. And besides we don't want another explosive fiasco do we?
Nothing fancy here. Just new looks, up-to-date os, new unwanted pre-installed app. The rest is the same as s7. Better wait for note 8
razerblade, 29 Mar 2017Is there any real difference between sd 835 or sd 821 in real life usage ? Absolutely not! Is ... moreThe 835 has over 20% better efficiency over the 821...in most cases it's around 30%...
Yes they force people to think it's ok with 3000 mah as long as it has 10 nm cd 835 which is more effecient but no one says anything about display which juices the battery. What would make samsung loose if they put for the sake of hell 5000mah causing unlimited happinies and attracts thousands of new customers ! I hadturned off the live event the moment I saw 3000mah. Nothing new. And don't be excited for s9 or s10 .. as long as fans are blinded enough samsung would never bring a real innovative features on the side of hardware or software.
Is there any real difference between sd 835 or sd 821 in real life usage ? Absolutely not! Is there any difference between bettery life between 3000mah on sd821 or sd 835 on a 2 same phones ? Absolutely nothing ? And now we have 6.2 inches which makes the same battery life experience as the s7 or s6. Removable battery system (rip). Fm radio also (rip) 256GB(rip) untill 2020. 5 inches screen(rip) and samsung will never care about people have the interest of small screen phones.so what's new ? Bixby ? No it's almost a bloatware to the majority of users. So what we have seen this year of boring tech companies ? Nothing ? Yes nothing .
A larger screen with a weaker battery seems like a step back from the S7 Edge.
Besides 6.2 "seems to me too big for mobile, it starts to enter the field of tablets
