If the S8 is really only 140mm tall with a 5.8 inch screen then this will be the game changer that so many consumers are looking for e.g big screen but small footprint and easy to hold. If it works out well for Samsung then expect others to follow soon after.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2017It will be the first phone that uses the Snapdragon 835. This is more than just a faster cpu ... moreThose are little changes. My Zenfone Max has 1 week of battery life (I am writing from it and the last charge was 1 whole week ago).
So then the only improvements on S8 would be a faster CPU and 5G connectivity, that is, faster connectivity. I consider 3G fast enough for me. In fact I have 4G and I have it disabled. Improvements on the S8 don't impress me.
Gilbert, 27 Mar 2017May I know what are the BLOATWARES that Samsung will load ( cannot be uninstalled) in the upco... moreIf you own S7 edge you should know there is a feature there that enable you to turn off the app you dont want to use even if you cant uninstall it. Tap and hold the app you want to delete or disable. Drag the icon over to the trash can icon on the top left of the screen.
Keep the Amazon app. It gives you access to Amazon Underground, which is a great way to get free apps that otherwise cost money on Google Play. Delete Kindle if reading not your thing. Delete Facebook. It notorious for draining battery. If you need FB, use the free Metal for Facebook app instead. It replicates the experience without zapping your power.
For Samsung apps, keep the Memo cause you will find yourself using it more often than not. Keep the File, for easy managing of stuff you download. Keep S-Health as S7 have inbuilt pedometer to track your calories and distant travel & it also have a heart rate monitor. Keep the S-Voice for hands free control. You can use voice memo and car mode with it. Delete Samsung Gear if you dont use smartwatch. Delete Samsung Milk Music if you dont stream radio. Its only free on few select of Samsung devices. Next, if you bought your phone from a carrier my advice, DISABLE all of it useless apps.
So, there are not much bloatware other than from Amazon, Samsung apps and carrier apps. I dont consider Google apps as bloatware btw. Good luck with your phone. Other brand offer pretty much similar useless apps.
May I know what are the BLOATWARES that Samsung will load ( cannot be uninstalled) in the upcoming S8?
When will Samsung allow users to UNINSTALL BLOATWARES? Until then, I will not upgrade my s7 sdge to s8. And next time I buy a new cp, it will NOT be a samsung loaded with uninstallable bloatwares.
Can't wait till 29 March comes fast S8,S8+ hope you bring breathe taking improve display and new UFS micro sd card support

also last reports say the note7 issue was not in battery itself, but too small free margin between the battery and body. Which is due to samsung own design which means you can't sue yourself. your own developers and engeneeres done the mistake. Not the supliers.

p/s:did you have another idea?
razerblade, 26 Mar 2017Haha. Ok i agree this cpu doesn't juice the battery but why 3000 ?? Why the hell samsung hasn... moreYou do realize fast charging are meaningless if you put giant battery. It will never reach 100% 'fast' enough to be considered as fast charging. Wireless charging which is slightly slower will be even worst to charge with giant battery. Btw, to give you a reference, the 9.7" Galaxy Tab S3 only need 6000mah battery with SD820. And even the more gigantic 18.4" Galaxy View only have 5700mah battery. I'm pretty sure 3000mah on 5.8" Galaxy S8 is more than efficient enough with that SD835/Exynos 8895.
razerblade, 26 Mar 2017No. It would take 2 hours exactly to charge 5000mah battery and gives double the life.Two hours to charge 5000 mAh is really really truly Great! Hey Samsung :| for your customers do something!!
Arian Adler, 26 Mar 2017I'm sure isn't so difficult for Samsung according to A9 Pro (2016) but: higher capacity means... moreNo. It would take 2 hours exactly to charge 5000mah battery and gives double the life.
I'm sure isn't so difficult for Samsung according to A9 Pro (2016) but: higher capacity means too long time for charging I guess in normal situation about three hours for 3500mAh (0%~100%) how much for 5k mAh? 5 hours or more!? 3k mAh is enough in daily normal usage! Also sd835 has quick fast charging Q 4.0
lan, 26 Mar 2017The fastest cpu sd 835 no need the big mah batery... Haha. Ok i agree this cpu doesn't juice the battery but why 3000 ?? Why the hell samsung hasn't put a 5000mah battery to get more and more battery life !! Do you really need this battery life to be just like the 3500mah with sd 821 !!
