I usually takes water resistance in context as my phone keeps getting dropped on various surfaces including water. But there is a big butttt....
Why would someone invest in S8 just for water resistance when it tends to break in just a single drop. :(
Not worth it....
rafagas77, 13 Jul 2017I got this phone about a month ago I HATE IT ! This is a nightmare. The phone doesn't respond ... moreI'm pretty much sure that you got yourself a clone S8. FYI, chinese clones don't have the same camera output and/or the screen responsiveness. I've been using mine since May 8th this year, it works flawlessly. Some devices may have defects, but not all the things you mentioned.
Take care. Ciao...
Ozora, 16 Jul 2017Which one should I take? S8 or s7 edge?whats your reason?S8, if you can afford it. Simply because it has exotic design, great User Experience and being the latest it will receive the updates more than the S7.
But to justify my comment, S7 is no bad phone either. It's just the past experience shows that Samsung phones tend to slow down over years. The reason was simply because they used to put fantastic options over Google (like, split screen, AOD etc), but now that Android natively can do that, the UI doesn't carry as much weight as earlier. But as S7 got the same UI update, you can check it out as well. Believe me, except the exotic looks, you won't miss out much with S7. The camera can capture better low light shots (compared it with my friend's S7), a few extras here and there, but not much. And oh, of you want DeX experience and USB C, you'll not get it on S7. Other than that, S7 will cover you for S8.
Hope that answers your question.
Take care. Ciao...
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2017it seems Samsung is abandon Galaxy S8 because Note 8 coming next monthI disagree. Just today S8 got an update...
no name, 17 Jul 2017i think u r the type of person that what u think is correct then it is correct.... hahahaaha..... moreHow about the bezel less curved screen? You forgot to compare that with any other phone. Oh wait, there isn't any other outside Samsung.
But hey, it doesn't make this phone best. The user experience is the thing that makes it the best, at least that makes two who thinks S8 is the best phone in the market now. You can differ from me, that's why your choice will be different. That is what I always try to make you understand - what is best for me may not be good for you at all. That's why we don't go for the same girl, right?
Anyway, back to your comment. Yes, almost all flagships have IP ratings, fast charging, best of the cameras in the market etc. But I'll name three things, (please note that these are the three things that makes S8 a winner in my book, your idea may differ) which you won't get in ANY phones in the market at present. Correct me if I'm wrong.
1. Bezel less slick design (people like me call it sexy)
2. Edge screen (super useful, those who haven't used one will never understand it. It is as good as iP's 3D touch)
3. Iris Scanner (which made me forgive Samsung for placing the fingerprint scanner in an odd place. And the more you use it, the faster it becomes. Now it blazingly unlocks my phone and I removed my fingerprint data from my phone entirely to increase security)
Take care now. Ciao...
I believe that the new s8 has really new,cool,and unique design. The upgraded specs from the s7 to the s8 are ok, although many people were waiting for 6GB ram, Stronger Glass, 4K resolution and many other upgrades, but it is ok. i liked the s8 in general.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2017Witch one should I take? S8 or iPhone 7iphone 7
Kohinoor Poultry, 18 Jul 2017Friends is there any 128gb version cause In India some dealers r selling 128gb & saying it... moreWhile there IS a 128 GB model, it also has 6 GB of RAM, and was only sold in South Korea and Hong Kong. Dubai never got a 128 GB model, so those dealers are probably scammers. Don't buy their product.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2017Witch one should I take? S8 or iPhone 7it depends on your interests ,iphone is for prestage, quality , simplisity, il say mostly good for business ppl. s8 is very good for ppl who like to explored ,ppl who like new things il say technical ppl.....i had iphone 5se ,had a little to enjoy but was very simple and convenient , now using s8 and very happy with it
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017Has anyone faced issues with the fingerprint sensor positioning?Yes, practically i have stopped using it as find it uncomfortable using that OpenView case
Demetrius, 17 Jul 2017Checked all your previous posts, damn you must really hate Sony, Oneplus and HTC at least they... moreThere is not a single brand which I hate I am using phones from very early age and believe me I have seen more than you know I have used all the brands Sony Huawei HTC Xiaomi
LG Sony Ericcson Apple etc so you cant judge me what the hell I hate or like If you have seen all my posts then go through that in which I told that I respect all brands and so on.....
Friends is there any 128gb version cause In India some dealers r selling 128gb & saying it's Dubai purchase is it true or selling clone one?
For me the reason why this phone is better than any other flagship phones is because of memory expandability ( allowing you to put sd card on it) and - 32-bit/384kHz audio - Active noise cancellation. For an Audiophile like me this means I can put as much as FLAC music files due to memory expansion and yes I get very good high quality audio since it can accomodate 32 bit/384 which translates to the best audio quality on a Mobile Phone..
Here, 17 Jul 2017No it isn't the bestYes it is the best....... the decision has been made.
by a landslide.
AAMIRSULTAN786, 17 Jul 2017Everyone has their own preferences of flagships then how can you target anyone ......Checked all your previous posts, damn you must really hate Sony, Oneplus and HTC at least they keep their design unique. Samsung is one of those brands where they are trying to be innovative and don't care about what they put inside their phones only just improve on design ergonomics which consumers been asking for so many years, to reduce bezels and curved screen etc. Every person has preference on screen dimension, camera megapixel and battery life. For me I don't care what brand I choose as long as it has my preference and meets my expectation then I would consider buying a phone that is value for money.
