I wish GSMArena would have a separate column for flagship phones, then mid range, then the lower segment.
Dani Daniel, 31 Mar 2017Battery is a joke. I wonder why they don't seem to improve their batteries I think they do not want push further after the Note 7 fiasco.
Arpan Shah, 31 Mar 2017Is it worth to buy galaxy s8 as i can't see huge change in s8 and s7.I don't think so... If you're willing to wait with the s9 that's good. But honestly, S7 family is still the best phone you can use right now. I have my s7 edge here and gonna upgrade it to s8 plus.
Joselius, 31 Mar 2017You would trade black bars for bezels?Probably not. I just wanted a metal back on the S8. And bigger damn battery. Inb4 "The new s9 with 4000 mah and better placed scanner."

But for the daily use it's great for multitasking and some other features.

What happened with 5g internet? When its coming out? I don't know why but I thought that this phone will have it
Whats the difference between S7 and S8... market got competition and they still stick with old specs ... this is 2017... please grow up Samsung (( too sad to hear such specs
well what's the difference between S7 and S8... everything is same ... 1-2 minor changes ... too bad ... Nokia is coming ... Market have competition and they still stick with 1 year OLD specs.
the batteries are terrible. only a 3000mh battery on a 5.8" qhd display.
now. they are setting the resolution to fhd and there is an option to select qhd from settings.
maybe a 10nm chip will help a little more.
still have to admit that the battery is terrible
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2017I love how people are just saying it is such a terrible design for a phone. For instance the c... moreWell answering you Mr./ Miss anonymous if the Samsung A3 is not the same blasting experience as a S Samsung Series, they should really change the name of the phone to Samsung B , or at least sell it for a good price for what it is. Not overpricing a phone that is crappy just because has Samsung written on it. Fact is every brand don't inovate on phones for quite long now, when i see a only screen style with holographic projection and transfer video, image and files from screen to screen just dropping there with a touch,i will see some significant changes on smartphones. Just check the smartphones on "The expanse" series : ). Yeap still and will continue to be Sci fi, :( sight.
Samsung S7 edge 5.5 screen size Battery 3600 Mah
Samsung s8 5.8 screen size Battery 3000 Mah
Why Change RAM 6gb for 8+
Not much of a difference between the s7 and s8 though... s7 user better to stick with it and wait for s9.. if you have some extra cash lying around you can go for it for the look...
S8 is okay man not a big deal..I prefer iphone only due to tgeir optimization..I had to call a guy urgently and when the phone app i opened in galaxy s7 ..it was super laggy which i mever even faced in iphone 5s which is about 4 years older
why is that,they get bigger and bigger... 148 mm??? come on.. :(
i think 5.2 inch display in max 142 mm tall phone is enough for a phone.
Techtoon, 31 Mar 2017Its not a huge upgrade ,if u c the mobile launched this year til nw have nt mch changes jst de... moreYou will learn to accept the new aspect ratio soon. People used to say the first Note as too big. Now phablet is a thing. They said curved screen is awkward to use. Now even other brand use it in their flagship. This new ratio will be a norm soon.
Maybe the former LG execs work for Samsung now... 3000mah with 5.8 screen. Even G6 beats the S8 now... Battery fires was the reason, more cautious on density..... Will hurt them for sure.

Where? I can't find a statement to that effect anywhere in the hands-on review. Would you mind quoting it? Thanks.
