The phone is beautiful. Saw it today. Felt very slim in hand. Smaller than I thought. The curve corner doesnt affect anything at all. That is where the notification shade and on screen button located. Tried the camera. Awesome exposure level. Great preservation of details too. Little loss in zooming. Video sample is astonishing. Could it be the hdr content, not sure. Audio is better than the S7 now. Much improvement made. The fingerprint sensor arent as bad as the media said it. Could get used to it in a week or two. I wish I could test the akg earphone but they dont have that for testing.

The infinity display is undoubtedly phenomenal, but the ultimate downfall (and the total deal breaker for me) is there is no upgrade in its primary camera. :(
I was expecting it would be at least a dual pixel camera but with a dual camera technology like in iPhone 7.
It did not have a good design
S8 image quality is much lower than Sony and Apple
Curve four corners very ugly

it has no big screen as mentioned in advertisement.
Note 5 is still highlight among Samsung series.
The display is big on paper but practically It's smaller. It's just a oddly taller version of any 5.2" display. Same thing for the S8+, It's just a taller version of any 5.5" display. 5.5" Galaxy S7 edge display It's 2.7" in width and S8+ display is 2.71" in width.
Most overpraised to S8
In fact_ S8 is pretty for your " eyes ONLY"
In real life
IT make us difficult to use in hands due to its narrow tall aspect ratio , and curved zone of the display make waste space that we cannot use
Set aside the design one can easily see the same boring (even disappointing) specs
Even NO dual camera and Bixby is useless in present time and far far away to compete Apple Siri and Google voice assistant
S8 acts like a out of date phone with unimpressed specs
Mohsen85, 20 Apr 2017It's for a few years one of the best setsXz premium
I cant say Im impressed. I have an s7 and after twelve months the battery is just crap. Now the s8 has a bigger screen and same size battery. Still no decent sounding speaker for a premium phone. And yep their easier in the hand but only because their going taller so your getting less side real estate to view and with the edges that takes even more away. Stop focusing on prettiness and more function and longevity.
