marlonhr, 22 Apr 2017Why is the curved narrow screen when all use 99% in vertical position ????? Rather than expand... moreYou have given your own answer. The narrow but taller screen helps better to view web content or more texts in messages or calendar or any other apps you may think of. And narrowing down the waist means that you can hold this phone better than other phones. Blackberry was always criticized for making wider phones. People don't like them. Only people who are trolls are saying bad things about the display. If you don't believe what I said, go and check the phone out yourself. You will be able to hold it with ease in your palm. This is the most comfortable 5inch plus smartphone to hold to date.
Take care. Ciao...

sam, 22 Apr 2017why red tint is thereeeee???? how can fix ityou can't fix it but there will be an update soon that will let you adjust it a bit

BUT keep in mind: iphone and s8 use different display technologies
IPS display on iPhone and......... OLED display on S8
Moreover Apple iPhone 7 uses "wide color gamut" DCIP3 similarly 4KHDR display on SONY Xperia XZ Premium
And we cannot see red tint in iphone in real life BUT obviously see red tint in S8 in real life even 1080p resolution because S8 run 1080p by default
(meaning red tint appear in 1080p)
Native reresolution 2K on S8 sucks battery fast and you can't get a_day battery life
Krystal Key just proved to me that the Pixel has a better camera than the S8. PhoneBuff showed S8 lose again to the iPhone 7. And this was the Exynos variant. No surprises. Reviews from different outlets still reports the Samsung lag and stutter.
Other than the design, the camera isn't really improved and loses to a half year old phone. It is still laggy. And it still can't handle RAM management with apps in the background as well as the iPhone.
Overrated. Note8 may look to have the same problems with Samsung's insistence of putting a skin over Android. If only S8 had a Google Play Edition.
Arian Adler, 22 Apr 2017No radio, no stereo speakers, red in display, taller too! No buy then xDRegarding the red tint, Unbox Theraphy did a video on youtube testing 10 samples. Variation in red is not much different in all of the samples. He even compare iphone 7 and 7 plus which is even more red than s8/s8+. There you go. You want a reddish phone, get an iphone. :-)
ok l had a look at the s8 today at the vodafone shop .
the phone looks good but i am not that good. i have a Mi Mix 6gb ram 256gb memory
fast processor and a great screen . and a great battery size
samsung have done there usual thing like add card slot or take away card slot
add 2mm to the screen or 2mm take off . faster processor and mess around with battery size .. and the battery size in the s8 is a joke .. and still they are asking £800 for the phone
before you jump and buy have a look around there are some great phones out their.....
Love Samsung I'm waiting like this design lovely phone so beautiful and features is also is different love Samsung......
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2017They should expand it and not narrow it down! These screen dimensions make no sense if 99% of ... moreYou still dont understand bezel less concept. The idea is to use the bezel and turn it into screen. They never really want to increase screen size. Samsung just want to maximize usable area on the phone itself. Lets say you have galaxy s7 edge. You see the top and bottom bezel. Turn those bezel to usable screen without changing the form factor. You practically turn or stretch a 16:9 screen into 18.5:9 just like you see here on s8; without changing the width. That is the point of bezel less. Its pretty much adding screen to the top and bottom bezel. You still have that 16:9 screen, plus additional screen real estate where it used to be your capacitive keys(bottom) and samsung logo(top) on s7 edge. On video mode(typical 16:9 format) these top and bottom turn into black bars which actually have palm rejection when hold horizontally so, dont be afraid to rest your hand on the screen as it act as temporary bezel.
No radio, no stereo speakers, red in display, taller too! No buy then xD
Got this phone brilliant .. work of art samsung you have cracked it I said years ago who ever brings out a phone with whole screen nearly phone your getting my money .I am do glad I came back to samsung was sony for years .. samsung
You have my attention .. if you are thinking about this phone think no longer .I ordered mine the night I saw the samsung unveiling .. Apple are history in my eyes .. samsung s8 best phone at this present time .. light years ahead of apple..
They should expand it and not narrow it down! These screen dimensions make no sense if 99% of users are in vertical position!
"S8 is a TALLER version of the 5_inch phone indeed"
Xperia XA is a 5 incher with bezeless display having a net overall width of 68 mm
S8 has 68.1 mm width
So S8 is "big"on paper
But it has a same width comparing to Sony XA , 5_inch bezeless phone
In fact S8 is a smaller taller narrower phone even to compare last year Samsung S7
Superb phone , awesome look ,perfect size and easy to carry .
Seriously why does everyone bang on about Does it have a FM radio MY GOD GO and get grandma's radio from her kitchen, This is the 21st Century get a app with crackle free sound , yes it cost data when you go out , then I would suggest you get an unlimited data plan , IT'S THAT EASY.
Love the phone but I am a bit doubtful with the camera performance. Don't get me wrong it's great but there are various youtube videos of camera comparison with Xperia XZs from different uploaders (so definitely not rigged lol) and XZs was surprisingly better. And XZs is not even the actual Sony flagship this year !!!!
sam, 22 Apr 2017why red tint is thereeeee???? how can fix itOnly the korean variant suffer from red tint from what I heard. I doubt yours is red tinted.

Because you don't use Samsung smartphone and dont know nothing about it. For me all Samsung features is usefull. Like no other. I do work, play and entertainment just only with my Note 3. I don't need laptop also.
