S6 | S6 edge | S6 edge plus : ARM Mali T760 MP8 (8 cores up to 16 cores)
S7 | S7 edge : ARM Mali T880 MP12 (12 cores up to 16 cores)
S8 | S8+ : ARM Mali G-71 MP20 (20 cores up to XX cores)
3 GPU that leading on the greatest version of their GPU. Samsung select a great GPU state, and high end ARM GPU for every their flagship phone year by year (only for global)
I don't know exactly about US version using Adreno GPU
Samsung's new S8 attempts to be the next Note 7 in terms of specs. It has the same IP67 certification that I love. Samsung continues the great Super AMMOLED screen technology. The screen covers 84% of the body, which makes it look spectacular. The US version of the phone uses the Snapdragon 835, which uses a lot of power, but has a lot of power behind it. The international version uses the Exynos 8895, which uses less power, but in return has less power. The GPU for the US model is the Adreno 540, while the international model GPU is the Mali-G71 MP20. Based off of performance tests, the Adreno handles more than the Mali. Overall, I highly recommend the US model over the EMEA model. Samsung has also switched the charger from 2.0 type B, to 3.1 type C, which is much better. Overall I give the Samsung Galaxy S8 a Smart Score of 8308.8 (the S7 has a Smart Score of 7404.7)
It's Good But If it is wider and slimmer It becomes number one quality of samsung mobiles
AnonD-668730, 12 May 2017hi, whats diff between samsung edge 7 and samsung 8? its really that hard for you to type that on youtube ? c'mon dude its 2017 use some brain :) There is plenty reviews comparing these two models
Hope samsung S8 have 128gb. Because i dont like to use external memory. I think external memory can make phone running slow.
KinG, 11 May 2017Let's agree to disagree...the speaker on S8 is one of the loudest you get on a Samsung phone,... moreI meant Note 4 which was super loud, not S4...
S8 has really loud speaker, but is lacking bass.
And why so tall, a little wider instead would have been better.
I previously had a IPHONE 7 and it's really good but when I bought my S7e its much better. Both phones can be really great for a user depending on your usage. Honestly I don't hate IPHONE but Samsung was just much better and it really suits my needs. Anyway my wife now enjoys my IPHONE 7 now so i guess everybody is happy
According to extended warranty service provider SquareTrade the S8 and S8 Plus is the most fragile phone ever!
AnonD-542307, 09 May 2017Thanks for the reply.
Frankly how do u see ear piece loudness while in call when u compare wi... moreTested by GSMarena, the Samsung S8 loud speaker volume are like this:
Voice 68dB / Noise 69dB / Ring 70dB
Noise -92.5dB / Crosstalk -92.8dB
And this is volume test for Xperia XZs:
Voice 62dB / Noise 65dB / Ring 73dB
Noise -93.5dB / Crosstalk -92.7dB
I am nothing same like you, I have source to show you the facts. Xperia is gorgeous not ugly, loop surface is good designs and we will see the China OEM copy from Sony designs.
Philip, 11 May 2017which one is better?? s8 or lg g6?..It is only s8 now, other phones can't come close
Funny how everyone's praising the big screen, when in fact it's only taller. It's width is the same as that of a 5 inch screen, meaning objects on screen will appear as small as on a 5 inch screen.
Just got it week ago, upgraded from S6. In my opinion this is the best phone now, literally you can't compare it with anything else, for now, the best. Screen, chipset, doesn't have competition, battery life is amazing. Later, arguably biggest improvement from s6. It will last for two days under heavy usage IF you use 720p res and turn of gimmicky "always on display". I'm not going to even mention camera, it is definitely if not the best will be second for sure. Again, Samsung showed who is the boss. If you need best phone now, don't even look around just get S8
The S8 is a great phone but the fingerprint scanner is in an awkward position and there is a slight red tint on mine (although Samsung claims that it will be fixed through an update). The display looks amazing, but the bezels just come back because of the odd aspect ratio when consuming content. Camera is not at all different from the S7 and S7 edge. I suggest getting a Huawei Mate 9 instead!!
Hello from Sri Lanka!
I was a long time Mi- fan and used the Redmi Note 3 (one of the best phones I've used).
Then I bought the Galaxy S8 and I gotta say that this is the real deal. There are so many reviews online and I should also add as a regular user, the phone keeps it's promise.
The camera is the best out there and the performance is outstanding. Of course are not in a race between the mili-seconds to open and close apps. LOL. The user experience is so nice.
The phone is built in a very posh manner and the build quality cannot be better. The Fingerprint scanner which is on the back doesn't make much of a difference now that I'm used to it.
The battery is amazing! I am a daily user and I can survive 1 1/2 days with a charge and with all the time being connected on Wifi and Mobile data.
This phone really rocks and don't hesitate to buy one if you are planning to.
