S8 is for Welcome.
Samsung will fixed perfectly for the design on the next year Galaxy Unpacked 2018 especially Fingerprint location which is on worldTech for now still on discussed about uncomfortable to touch it especially for S8+, they will do, and fix it on Galaxy S9, so Galaxy S8 is welcome new series first of new Infinity Display, and design of course
just like S6 edge is the first phone for samsung with dual edge screen, and they perfect it more smooth edges screen, and edge feature on the next Galaxy S7 edge, until now, S8|S8+ is similar Narrow dual edge screen from the Galaxy S7 edge
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2017What about those who used to say that Sony is overpricedYou're Right, the most overprice things is iPhone than other phone until now, I still don't know what a special software or unique feature on iPhone, I think from the design is similar from past...
how about S8 | S8+?, when you see it they're was high step ahead from iPhone for now, there is so much many features that still not has on the iPhone
about the price, iPhone 7 plus is still more expensive than the S8, and it will be out of mind of price if iPhone 8 come out about September 2017
Misko195, 29 Apr 2017Do you really think everything is in the wireless charging? It's overrated! And it's not wirel... moreBefore Commenting here, please assume most of the users who post in favour of samsung compared to an iphone are either less knowledgeable or Paid by samsung.
I do not understand how a knowledgeable person can compare a samsung phone with an iphone, It's like comparing Diamond with a price of shiny stone(Samsung).
What matters most for an end user is a lag free user interface, not a highly customized one like samsung.
Further what is the use of wireless charging if you need a long wire to connect, it should be named as "usb-less" charging.
Infact these are not at all comfortable and safe, basically a More hyped less technical innovation by samsung.
Instead samsung should focus more on overall internal software optimization, rather than increasing RAM and curved displays etc.
Its the phone only, which keeps in mind the basic needs and requirement and keeps away the unnecessary things.
Zed, 29 Apr 2017iPhone perfect? Lol, it's 2017 and there's no wireless charging, no fast charging. etc etc.Do you really think everything is in the wireless charging? It's overrated! And it's not wireless at all.
Samsung time going behind us, liked it or not.
And yes, with what the iPhone is equipped right now, it rules. With only as half as this samsung has memory, iPhone works much smoother.
Imagine if iPhone had all the features. Not that they can't add, but 'iris scanner' is nonsense, wireless charger is not wireless at all etc etc... So, for what you paying in the end? For the phone which becomes to lag after an year.
iPhone perfect? Lol, it's 2017 and there's no wireless charging, no fast charging. etc etc.
I have almoset used all d phones bt nothing z gd lyk samsung... so definetly d search of my kinnd of ph z here s8+... i just lv it... finally dnt hv 2 change mob anymore..

SLR2099, 28 Apr 2017Hahaha... don't be ridiculous now mischa, are seeing what you are saying. Because i see what y... moreAgreed, especially when considering additional 400$ over the s7 price, this is ridiculous.
abdeali21, 27 Apr 2017for those who are saying samsung is overpriced let me remind you that iphone was launched at 70000What about those who used to say that Sony is overpriced
mischa, 28 Apr 2017This is not just a bezelless S7. It's a brand new phone. Everything on this phone is an upgrad... moreIf you are mature enough then why bother to compare sony..why not other mobile? Stop ranting about Sony if you love Samsung then you are free to do so no need to bash it here.. I love samsung too but don't hate the xz either cause I've seen how they are
Polius, 28 Apr 2017You know how more megapixel doesnt make a better camera. The same goes for battery. Dont look ... moreDon't know about endurance but my s7 edge battery is just pathetic after 5 months..
I bought this phone and i have to say I regret buying it, how am I supposed to hold the phone horizontally while watching a movie, or playing​ a game. My palms feel like it's crushing this phone because the bezels are way too small and it's too hard to type on screen. Yes I understand Samsung is all about aesthetic purposes and future proof bla bla bla and so on, but Samsung built a hybrid junk and it's designed for 3 year old toddlers who want to explore everything inch and details of the screen, I need bezels to hold the phone like a man, shame on you Samsung.
Ilvan jung, 28 Apr 2017i do understand your concern, but if them makes largest capacity battery, the phone will becom... moreTrue, plus we need more research into newer more powerful battery's but in same size container. :). I am getting S8 soon it is phone of the year. :)
mischa, 28 Apr 2017This is not just a bezelless S7. It's a brand new phone. Everything on this phone is an upgrad... moreHahaha... don't be ridiculous now mischa, are seeing what you are saying. Because i see what you are saying, and what you're saying is total bull lol. Stop misleading the people with your scram talk. The S8 is basically an S7 edge plus version of the original s7 edge. Its not really an upgrade.
Kelsey B, 28 Apr 2017We have been asking for better battery life for over a decade now. They give us energy saving ... morei do understand your concern, but if them makes largest capacity battery, the phone will become even more thicker make the phone body shape unattractive. the battery maybe a little bit poor, but the phone performance are improving. sometimes largest screen display is not the problem cause the battery drain. we can't expert something that what we expert to happen. maybe s9 wiil be your choice.
The following are few lines from the GSMArena S8 review:
"It is worth mentioning that our standard color tests all measure color accuracy against the sRGB color space. By that standard, our S8 unit managed an average deltaE of 2 and a maximum one of 3.2, using the AMOLED Basic mode.
The S8 has a total of four selectable screen modes, each with its own gamut specifics. If you really want to get technical about it, AMOLED Cinema is very accurate as per the DCI-P3 color gamut. AMOLED Photo is what you want to come as close to Adobe RGB as possible and Basic Screen mode aims towards sRGB or Rec. 709. The latter is usually what consumer digital cameras, TVs, laptops and other tech aim for, so it could be a familiar sight, if you spend a lot of time in front of other screens."
What it says clearly that S8 screens are one of the best screens available. And now I'm almost sure that red tint issue was created by some trolls (there are a lot of them). Yet, Samsung didn't say "This white color is so old age, so we made the screen reddish" or "It was our Ex-CEO's dream and we made it true" or "You want red screen, you just don't know it yet" or "It's the best Galaxy S ever made, after the first Galaxy S". Such iD-iOts! What did Samsung do? They went through the issue and released an uodate even before the devices were shelved. So humble! But people take humble attitude as weakness. So they kept trolling.
Anyway. I know for sure that red tint is not troll, it's true. But even then it's not an issue, not yet. 10 in just 10 million has this problem and Samsung launched an update. Trolls here are just upset because their phone manufacturers don't response until it's a bigger issue.
And those of you wanna say that Samsung pays me, well, you don't need to be paid to tell the truth. And only bra-iNless people will fail to judge how true I am. Ciao...
Check the following links for the S8 & S8+ red tint issue:
Troll ONLY AFTER reading and understanding it fully.
Look, there are NO PERFECT PHONES out there. Every phone has it's flaws (unless it's an iPhone. Everything in an iPhone is always better). But one will always correct the flaws from another phone.
I can show you more than 10 videos on the following:
Reasons S8 is better than [Phone ABC]
Reasons [Phone ABC] is better than S8
So why bother wasting time on bashing? I've told it before, I'm telling it again, I love constructive criticism. But bashing on things like red tint is so immature when it can be fixed. And even worse, they don't know why the AMOLED screens differ in color temperature (reason behind red tint).
And about the lag, if you put a 4000ltr engine in a 500kg chasis and 5000kg chasis, definitely the 500kg will be faster. The reason I don't like iPhone is because it can customise the wallpaper and that's it. A phone is NOT about the wallpaper only as a car is NOT about changing the seat cover only. Yeah, you can change from economy to sports mode, but that's NOT customization. Customization is changing the headlights, backlights, rims, hoods etc. Similarly, changing the whole looks of the phone is called customization. If you put on a hauler on a car, it'll definitely lose it's power than the same model car unless you put a better engine in it. But hauler sounds good. Similarly, a bigger curved screen draws more power from the CPU, but that doesn't make is less beautiful. Any idiot like me will understand that. But no, the iD-iOts never understand.
Even after so many examples if you keep complaining and comparing S8 with stupid things, well, wake up. It's impossible to wake someone up who's just pretending to be asleep.
