Looks like the S8+ is the one more people are getting over this S8. Check Android Central forums especially dealing with the annoying aspect ratio where we will see alot of pillar boxing.
The S8 might be too "narrow" for users. It has the same width as a 4.7" iPhone 7. This is a problem if many people are already used to typing on a keyboard as wide as the S7e. Most people do type in portrait mode. S8+ also does have a bigger battery.
S8+ > S8
Such a big ugly phone, mono speakers, same crap camera from s7, no hdr10/uhd, lagwiz, 3000mah for a 5.8" incher wtf!!! considering how terrible the battery backup of the s7 this is gonna be ugly.
No overall interesting changes other than"Gimmick" and they overpriced this crap to 800-900 bucks? And using mass advertising paying sites to diss their competitors. lmao!
The last time i checked, this site wasnt created in ur name so its either u respect others people's opinion by replying politely or keep your bad manner by ignoring. If u lack understanding, what hes trying to say is that he prefers the smaller size of samsung s7. If you are not okay with his opinion then shut the hell up.
Only thing which divert my mind to not buy this phone is
Hybrid sim slot n battery
Just tried S8 in the shop. Screen and cameras are amazing, best i have ever seen. Speaker is loud too, which is important to me.
But the phone is too tall, same as S7 edge. S7 was perfect size...Would have prefered less tall and wider. Maybe they will launch an S8 mini ? Anyway will soon replace my S6 edge with S8, if only to get a memory card storage.
sammy, 16 Apr 2017does 3000mah battery will be better then 3600mah of s7 edge???Maybe not. It is based on what kind of processor it is using. Better processors use more power in computing, so maybe battery life will be worse than S7 Edge
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Wtf?! Still the same camera as S7?! No 1000fps video recording?! Tf?! Sony Xperia XZ Premium c... moreXperia XZ Premium could have a chance to be the best phone in 2017 regarding that power and display
For me mid-long term updates (24 months like Google phones), quick updates (at max, 1 month after the release date) and vanilla experience (like Nexus and Android Ones, maybe..some Motorolas..but not much) are 1st priority.
Google camera post processing are 2nd priority (but Samsung and Apple have excellent quality as well so this is secondary).
Now, what I really do like from this phone...is the "width": 68.1mm, while that is not as great as the original Moto X (65mm), it's better than the Galaxy Nexus (another amazing comfortable phone) and also similar to the iPhones. Google and the others should learn how to come back to this types of phones that are not so wide and are very comfortable to use with one hand. (this one is still very tall...so let's see how well it does in the future... A GPE version of this phone would be a must, it's a shame there are no more GPE phones).
Secondary: what I like from this phone is the Samsung quality.
PS: Finally samsung got rid of hardware front buttons, it tooks years, but now they're more aligned with Android behaviour.
I got my phone day before yesterday and i went on a flight 10 hours laterand I have to say in this short time I was impressed with 2 things...the AKG earphone a real piece of work...it doesn't have noise cancelling function and I don't see it need it. Sound very good beyond my expectations. Second thing I liked is the battery life

Samsung u did mistake in this phone
Joselius, 14 Apr 2017Honor 8 Pro? Yeah, just go buy your Honor 8 Pro. The fingerprint scanner will be so much easie... moreWhile I agree with you on the voice assistant, I totally disagree with you on the fingerpront sensor. I have a honor 8 and my wife has a mate 9 (which is huge) but even there the fingerprint reader is much easier to find then in the S8 it is in the middle where the normal finger is anyway and it is there alone, not to be exchanged with the camera and it is not flat ... It is carved into the metal so it super easy to recognize! Much better then the s8 one ...
im thinking of buying this phone but im kinda careless, i drop my phone like 3times a year haha and i dont want to put any phone protection in it coz it will ruin the dedign.
Curved display on phones is a useless cosmetic gimmick like curved display on Samsung's television sets. Brings nothing useful. I loved seeing the S6 edge two years ago. But curved display is awful with real world usage.
Looks good. Works awful. Have to retrain yourself when holding it and typing the far edges of the keyboard. Annoying when gaming. S8 will sell a gazillion. Then more curved display nonsense until they milk it out dry.
unknown , 15 Apr 2017i`m a bit confuse.. i saw the s8 + its full black with black frame.. but the s8 have silver ... moreAll-black available for both. All S8 & S8+ comes with black front. The rest of the body comes with different color. Click the S8 image to see more photos.
i`m a bit confuse.. i saw the s8 + its full black with black frame.. but the s8 have silver frame.... there is s8 with black frame ? or that`s avalable only on s8+
Had a play around in store today. Very nice looking phone but I personally think the edge screen makes the phone feel too thin. Should have made it thicker and added more battery. Note 7 felt so much better in the hand. I'll wait for Note 8.
