Anonymous, 02 Apr 2017Appl is 3 years behind. My S6 by samsung is better the the iphone 7apple is iOS while samsungs is android
amoled display cant produce real black colours, it shutting off pixels tuning into black! resulting in fake black color
u might use all black wallpaper,themes including browser to reduce power consumpsion
who want dead screen by the way?
amoled cant use single pixel cuz the pentile always rely on a sub!

Hephaestus8, 01 Apr 2017Beautiful. The best smartphone ever! I finally checked out the S8 at Best Buy just a couple minutes ago. It's ok. Kinda like whatever.
I do like how shorter and narrower it is compared to my S7e and G5. The S8+ has the same width as my S7e but just taller. But when I went through the screens and scrolling it really fast, you can still see the hesitation and stutter. The taller screen also makes reaching the toggles a little harder.
With the Pixel, it simply flows with amazing fluidity from one menu to the next. The cam didn't look improved at all seeing that it is still using last year's but with tweaked up software processing. Ahem, Pixel HDR+ ripoff.
I talked to a couple of Best Buy employees inside before I left. Three of us were talking like a trio of phone dorks. One has a Pixel XL and the other has a Droid Z. Both love their phones. The Pixel XL owner was saying the S8 was just like a whatever upgrade. Ditto from me.
Taller screen, more narrower and shorter footprint than the S7e, and Bixby. Big whoop! I do like it in orchid. But both black or orchid show fingerprints like a dirty w*ore after a 2 min gangbang.
The Note8 will look 95% like the S8+ while the iPhone Edition will look 80% like the S8 but shorter and without the curves. The S9 will look 90% like it too. I don't see the big deal with the new design when everyone will follow this bezel-less template soon.
Performance is what matters to me and the S8 still stutters like it is still 2012.
Savor, 01 Apr 2017Sure. Let your shallowness fool you.
Same rear camera as last year's
Same amount of RAM
... moreGive it a break. It's not a secret that S8 aren't innovative at all but as far as we know, people may still like an object for its design (or religiously like itards).
And "honeymoon phase" is very long in Edge family, i still love my S6 Edge preordered and may go for a S8 as a 2nd solid phone despite its unworthy specs to me.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2017Yeah, it is funny because Apple's speed makes the S8 look 10 years old.Oh yeah, my father is stronger than yours. You'd better comment Samsung Galaxy S8 because the article is about it.
seasonar2000, 01 Apr 2017they copied lgMost Android OEMs removed the physical home button years ago since ICS. The Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus that Samsung manufactured didn't have a physical home button either. Do some research.
Joanne Carroll The Samsung S8 looks gorgeous! That display is incredible.
Fabian 123, 01 Apr 2017I love it Sure. Let your shallowness fool you.
Same rear camera as last year's
Same amount of RAM
Same screen resolution
Same annoying curved display
Same touchlaggy skin
So beyond the Infinity Display and another voice assistant nobody will use, the S8 is basically the S7 edge underneath it. Go with the odd numbered
models with Android.
S9 will refine whatever mistakes the S8 will bring. #4 is my lucky number but I noticed the third gen or fifth gen when the product matures. S9 is basically the s model for the S8 like S7 was to S6. Always go for the stronger twin.
No wonder PhoneBuff and MKBHD use Pixel as their daily driver. Same with Jon4Lakers. They get paid by dBrand to say nice things about Samsung products but know as a true tech head that the Pixel offers the best Android software experience.
Other than the taller display, name me one innovative feature the S8 has over its competition or its predecessors? You really can't. But let your eyes fool you. Same exact way using it once the honeymoon phase is over with its "amazing" design. Same awkwardness too.
S8 only caters to bandwagon Appletards thinking of switching because of the same ol', same ol' from iPhones. True Android fans know the difference experiencing Samsung's awful skin and pure, fluid stock Android bliss.
Today, for me, S7 edge is more than enough! S8 is it does not have anything in addition to S7 only design and screen to body ratio.
I am disappointed. I expect to see more specification to S7: more battery capacity, more ram memory, more storage memory. This are for snobs! Is distinguished by design and the screen to body ratio.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2017Yeah, it is funny because Apple's speed makes the S8 look 10 years old.If speed were everything, then flash would probably be our favourite super hero right? I guess its not.. everybody have different tastes.. if you like speed its great, but many people like me, would prefer to wait a second or two more, to play a game on a beautiful large, high res display, rather than on a 7 year old resolution density, not to mention the small and bland color spoils the whole fun anyway..

I saw this phone in the shop this afternoon and was thinner and smaller and better then, I expected. So far I only seen youtube video. Now I seen for real and is amazing. Wow. The only thing missing is the stereo speakers if I was going to compare with Apple. Everything else is way ahead. Defintely worth a look. Quite good price considering this phone. I would say is the best on the market. I want one. The S8 is £689 which is less the Apple 7 plus, but a lot better.
