Some people would try to hack it. Manufacturer can activate the chip but mostly its carriers decision to do so. If you are Verizon customer, tough luck. AT&T and T-Mobile are embracing activation for all Android phones, following a move Sprint made in 2013. Carriers have little financial incentive to do so because they profit from streaming data.
Apple especially the biggest holdout. They have little incentive to do anything that might undermine Beats One, Apple Music, and other streaming services. So does any other smartphone brands that associate themselves to any type of radio streaming services. They simply cant activate the fm radio in order not to cannibalize their business partner streaming services.
PS: There are still huge argument that fm radio is needed in time of emergency broadcast and safety. Broadcast and technology business still arguing over this issue in multiple Congress hearing. So far, no resolution is taken as mandating fm radio as public policy is not the way to go and government have no power to force manufacturer to do so. In the end, we customer just need to suck it up as there is nothing else we can do.
Bras, 05 Mar 2017Bro. I did some research before i said what i said. Do some research too. Z5 vs s7 camera. Z5 ... moreI mean xz prem. Now samsung. Think about it. So many people are asking for only one app for your flagships. The fm radio.
Antoniksen, 02 Mar 2017There is mechanical home button on the rear side of the phone close to the main camera.No, the guy I replied to said that the design was ugly, BECAUSE there was no home button.
I wasn't asking him to explain why there was no home button, etc. I was simply asking him to explain why he felt having no home button meant the design was UGLY.

Z5 vs s7 camera. Z5 has so much noise in low light. Poor battery. Now z5 premium has better color but f2.0??? No. They also took out the fm radio. Im thinking about the g6. But i have to wait for camera and battery review. Fyi. I dont care about the hardware. I care about the software.

Y... moreThe idea is the other cores are useless and almost all phones(at the moment) use one or two cores to get work because there is no application can use quad or more cores at the same time
Ad773, 05 Mar 2017I hope that Samsung add to that phone: FM radio and IR (infrared port)Don't be too hopeful, FM radio and ir in Samsung's flagships for so long time.... Gone, unfortunately

Only iphone does. Your claim is outright bogus. Even the crappiest mediatek phone comes with quad cores.

How does that tra... moreAlmost all phones are using two cores,and I phone is the best two core processors. The second thing:is the system integration to all device parts and program, and also the long servicing,IPhone devices get updates to become OS 10,whereas Samsung disown their old devices and no longer to release them up to date system. Therefore, Samsung should take that on consideration.Also, IPhone camera;as it is integrated with system it works smoothly and perfectly compared to others
gsmarena's dimensions for s8 are wrong. It's height is going to be something about s7 edge's height 148~150mm, which is a real pitty

i love the s7 camera for low light. but with no fm radio, im with hesitation. i need a flagship phone like this with fm, i dont wanna buy a midrange phone and taking two phones wherever i go. dont like to install app either and pay for data coz the signal is poor in some places. z5 range and lg G series range are good but have a poor battery and lack of innovation in camera. so much noise. think about it samsung! now the z5 premium also took out the fm. what the h are they thinking...
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2017If you need FM Radio, what about one of the Xperia Z5 range?Z5 has good camera lens but has a bad output. so much noise. poor battery
Pregnant BIXBY is not enough to compete Apple Siri
Super fragile Glass Body is covered by Samsung marketing
Of course it has a low glory to compare XZ Premium Alkalido Metal body and Apple series 7000 aluminium body.....
BUT S8 Price is super high despite it has nothing new or special
Perhaps The loss of billion dollars from debacle note7
Good luckdepends on innovations
