Gotta say it's funny looking at a lot of the comments hating on this device for no real reason, some using software as an excuse others using hardware and battery. I can clearly see these people do not own the device and have no idea what they are on about. Not worth the typing to reply to their comments. Do your research actually use the device for a week then make a comment. Nearly every reviewer on the internet has give this a very high recommendation and have reviewed it as the best device so far in 2017, there's a reason behind that, they have used it.

SIMPLE !!! I don't understand why some people can't comprehend this.
The phone takes less energy to do the same tasks RESULTING in more On Screen Time.

WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT!!!!!! Arghhhhhhhhh ..... we use our phones differently, we get different signal strengh, we make calls and take calls for different lengths, don't make the same amount of texts or use WiFi or download or upload or take the same amount of picture under the same conditions etc etc etc etc WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY!!!!! WE DON'T USE THE PHONES UNDER EXACTLY THE SAME CONDITIONS EACH AND EVERY DAY!!!!!!
We use our phones differently from 1 day to the next!!!!!!! If you want more time from your phone then just SIMPLY USE IT LESS THAN YOU DID BEFORE.
IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE, WHAT IS SOOOOOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?????
If you want to beat everyone on battery life then JUST switch the phone off!!!!!!!

The cpu on the s8 is hardly any faster than the s7 just a slight variation this is also true with sony xz premium and their earlier phones. I think this points to the fact that android has hit the wall in performance right now there is little to be gained from tech companies using faster cpu's with android phones the os and apps have been too easy to run for the last 3 years with no lag with even 2014 phones such as the samsung Alpha which turned out to be faster than the s5 due to its octa core and lower screen resolution.. So now what for the 2018 models? I cant see what could be improved that would make a difference. The android os and games are not high end or taxing enough for 2-3 year old cpus the os was always designed to be snappy to run anyway. I cant see any reason performance or feature wise why people who buy the s8 would need to upgrade for at least 2 years unless they just want to have the latest and look on point.

Dirk , 13 Aug 2017I agree with you completely.
What I do is THIS.

I always put it in a small pouch when i have the phone with me, to prevent it from scratches in my pocket. But i always use it without any kind of protection, i am just very careful.

At the moment it's a toss up between better performance, speed or better battery life. Having such a big battery with a powerful chip-set may cause issues with the battery heating up and the device loosing performance through throttling. It seems all devices are playing it safe with roughly the same type of battery.

no name, 15 Aug 2017lollllll y y onli 3000mah ....even mid range give 4000mah.... y...yyyHave you seen the tests on YouTube!!! No, then I suggest you do. The battery life is also determined by the hardware and software like a 10nm chip that the 835 and exynos 8895 has. But after reading your posts this may be hard for you to understand.
no name, 15 Aug 2017 u really think snapdragon 835 better than 650??? yes on paper yes..... actuall no...y ? those... moreSnapdragon 650 better than 835!! What!!! You are joking right. That's why Qualcomm them self's who created the chips charge company's a hefty price difference and put the 835 chips into flagship devices only to have there lower and midrange chips better. It's a conspiracy people!!!! You are sure telling me....
winner, 15 Aug 2017Fast charging?? fast charging kill battery even faster.... when fast charging battery heat up.... moreYes that's why all latest flagship phones have fast charge, so the manufacturers can pay billions on making and testing batteries only to pay billions out for recalls on all the devices they try to make money on, makes perfect business sense doesn't it. as Samsung found out last year when they were hit with a massive recall loosing billions, it's better to make sure the batteries are safe and working or they could be hit with financial loss through warranty claims. You are so cleaver!!!!

As for th... more u really think snapdragon 835 better than 650??? yes on paper yes..... actuall no...y ? those antutu rating actually combine all the 8 core performance and act as marketing tool to promote high end processor.... actually most mobile only use 2 core only and max four core and the rest is unused..each core is like a hand .... one hand do one job... initally the processor company introduce 2 core because operating system need 1 core and app / game need another then go to quad core.... actually quad core is the max that is needed .... y 8 core.... unless u open 7 game/ app and operating system... then u need it hahahaha... actually what we need is higher processing speed for each core but for today technology already saturated at 2.xxx ghz per core... so increasing the no. of core is really no use..those antutu rating is just to show i am superior by combining all 8 core performance as hardly all core will be used... so actually 650 n 835 is almost the same u wont fell the difference.... it is the same as ram ... now 6gb and 8gb ram .... actually how much ram a phone actually use?? the rest is actually unused....
