I got a hands on experience with the S8 yesterday. I went to an official Samsung store to get the true experience. It's NOT as long as some people perceive it to be. It certainly doesn't look like a long remote to me. I measured it up to my S5 and they are both practically the same size. I couldn't believe the compactness and though the screen is bigger than my S5's it doesn't seem that way in reality...maybe because it is more narrower than the S5's screen. Either way it feels great in my hand.
I also looked at the S8+, now that's another story. That phone is too broad, it felt a bit uncomfortable to hold and I'm not surprised as it's broader than my S5 and from day one I considered the S5 a bit too broad to grip comfortably.
The S8 feels exceptionally great in my hand and I wouldn't mind owning it just that it scares me a bit based on the reviews about it being the most fragile Galaxy S ever.
AAMIRSULTAN786, 30 Jun 2017AgreedIm sorry I used both XZp and S8. XZp is way better

Sony has realistic colors with excellent stabilisation. See video comaprisons. The s8 does have an amazing screen but you can't use it fully. Plus it has a very weird fingerprint location
AnonD-77943, 30 Jun 2017Hi all, i need help from real S8/S8+ owners, i'm very confused i don't know which one to choos... moreBro Im S8 user and I suggest you if you dont want a phablet then go for s8 the only difference is of battery and screen difference... no other difference believe me
AnonD-674516, 21 Jun 2017Cannot agree more buddy. It is currently the best smartphone around. Not that others are bad, ... moreIndeed!! And I am super enjoying it into water activities! And so much more!!!
NOTE: no offense to others but honestly, I'm not seeing any reasons to admire Chinese facto nowadays.(apart from huawei com.)
Why o why? There will always be something wrong.
And seriously? Said working with DxO company??? But how come the camera doesn't have OIS?The newly awaited OnePlus5? Caught cheating on its BM performance?
So much disappointment on this!
AnonD-77943, 30 Jun 2017Hi all, i need help from real S8/S8+ owners, i'm very confused i don't know which one to choos... moreIt's hard to say for sure just exactly how much more time you would get with the S8 Plus exactly......nobody uses the phone in the same way but I would not jump straight to the S8 if you are looking for additional On Screen Time.
I would be disappointed with 5 - 5 1/2 hours tbh, I'm using the S8 Plus and for me the amount of additional OST was one of the main issues for me. Glad I went for the S8 Plus, it's well exceeded my expectations and I can consistently get 7 hours Plus. I consider myself a heavy user (games the lot) but like I said everyone's different but I have seen many many many comments, screen shots etc that would indicate its the norm.
Ok, dunno what the extra cost would be but let's sat it is £100 ($130) extra to buy.... well a rough calculation based on 2 years of use would only equate to and additional 14p (17cents) extra per day, and you have the bigger screen too. Ask yourself, is that worth it?
Go in to a shop, have a look at the phones if you can. Get hands on ........... if I'm honest there are times when I wish I had went for the S8 due to it being a better size in certain situations, but then again I would hazard a guess and say that some S8 users might at times think " I wish I had went for the S8 Plus"
It's up to you, we all have our different preferences we sometimes think we made the right choice n 'they didnt' ...... n get all smug about it, n think ourselves as the 'elite'.... I will cherish that moment when I sat back with my S8 Plus after taking it out of the box for the very first time............
Whatever phone you pull from 'that box' be it either a S8 or a S8 Plus ..do it knowing just how very lucky you are....... to be alive...... when Samsung created the fantastic S8 and it's bigger sibling. ....... Yes!!! .. THIS is the life..

AnonD-77943, 30 Jun 2017Hi all, i need help from real S8/S8+ owners, i'm very confused i don't know which one to choos... moreIf battery life is the only diffefentiating factor for you between S8 & S8+, i would recommend you to save that 100$ and go for S8.
I own an S8. As far as battery backup is concerned, it gives me anywhere between 4 to 4.5hrs (On screen time) with heavy usage which is darn good.
S8+ is only slightly higher at 5 to 5.5hrs (On screen time). GSMA is absolutely right in their claim.

Im torn between Galaxy S8 and Huawei P10. My heart tells me to push to S8 but my concern is that if the S8 can shoot milky ways photography. Im fond of photography, which im confident that the P10 can perform, but at the same time I feel that S8 is more stylish and more convenient for me to use. Specs wise im good with either phones. The only thing that agonizes me right now is the camera. Im not really sure if the S8 can shoot excellent in low light environment. Please please help.
I am a new samsung s8 user and its been good to me so far. When i first got the phone i recieved it with a glass screen protector which did not fit with the otter box case that i have with it. Make sure to get the large glass screen that goes underneath the case. The phone has awsome features thst i think anyone should experience. Cant rrally explain them alll. But one thing that happened to me recently, the phone did an update and it messed with the clock. It had the alarm set but it didnt make a sound wbich kinda made me late for work one day. Never had this happen with any other phone.
AnonD-680865, 30 Jun 2017So why do you prefer the xzP compare to s8? Buy it and you will see yourself.
The worst auto correct I've ever seen. The texting is the biggest downfall. It will annoy you to all hell. It will change correct words to gibberish. Definitely gets hung up on apps too, slows down or freezes

I like and respect your opinion. It's nice to see such positiveness and I agree with every single word you said. The bottom line is that some phones may work for some people but not for others but all these phones are good just the same.
Karam, 30 Jun 2017I think yyou should go with the xzpSo why do you prefer the xzP compare to s8?
Hi all, i need help from real S8/S8+ owners, i'm very confused i don't know which one to choose, i don't care about the size, the most important factor for me is the battery capacity, is the 500mAh difference really worth the extra 100$? in GSMA reviews the difference is not that huge but in youtube some videos show that the difference is huge and others show it's very minimal, and FYI i can buy a very good power bank for less than that 100$ and use it with S8 to offset the difference in battery capacity...
Also GSMA says in the video review that the speaker sound is a bit louder than the one in S8+!!
Thanks so much in advance :)
What is wrong with Samsung These days ? S-series became note series . When S-series were made was supose to be medium size high end specs. Then they made note series for people who want bigger screen , i had no problem , i still can buy s-series in medium decent size but now what is wrong with you people ? S7 was the last decent size phone , s7 edge and s8 are huge . Not all people want to talk to a tablet . Is supose to be a smart-phone . Smart yes , but were is the phone ? It is not nice to speak at a tablet . Where do yo go after you made phones bigger and bigger ? Do you really want to carry your tv in you pocket in future ??

With all due respect to Sony, S8 is a bit ahead of XZ premium.
