Garlicc, 07 May 2017BODY WIDTH defines how big the phone is
With gangling ratio of S8 ....it is fairly taller th... moreTo GARLICC:
Sony phones have humongous bezels so that's not a fair comparison. The S5 and S7 are both 142mm in length while having a 5.1" screen while the Sony Xperia XA1 is 145mm with a 5.0" screen. The S8 is basically 149mm which makes it 7mm longer. The S5 was originally considered a big phone (it felt a bit too big for my hands when I got it) which is why it offered a feature the resize the screen for one handed use. Why would I be excited to get a phone which is 7mm taller? So it can stick out of my pocket easily?
My s8 has a gap on the lower right between the screen and frame. I can fit a few millimeters of paper in it. Will that affect the IP rating of my phone?

S8 is 148.9mm that's basically 149mm while the S7 is 142mm. That's almost 7mm taller which is quite a huge difference. If a S7 fitted a pocket exactly then a S8 will protrude greatly out that same pocket. I hate to hear people saying the S8 has a larger screen in virtually the same body as the S7. That is clearly not the case.
Just realized where is the white version seriously wtf, I've always had a white samsung I'm in the UK by the way. Been looking at the Huawei P10+ gorgeous phone even tested it in the carphone warehouse quite a fast phone nearly like an iphone my daughter has. Anyone give me advice I like taking pictures and recording by the way.

LET's dig deeply to S8 territory
(1) Speed te... moreHo fanboy. Keep cool and learn. Stop reporting something you see only in blogs and biased test and open your eyes and learn.
If you watch phonebuff speed test it's normal you think iphone is faster than samsung. There are real time tests on youtube with mobiles side to side with apps opened simultaneous. Go and try xeetechcare test and learn what is real speed test.
Last year s7 edge won best camera phone so don't compare s8 to iphone 7 or lg g6 because s8 is the best camera phone out there. Don't compare it to sony and wait sony xzp camera test.
Amoled home button burn is only in your brains samsung haters. You talk about issue which doesn't exist right now. Or you fan boys live in future???
Last year s7 s7 edge had good battery enough with qhd screen. Battery test is made with qhd+ so stop lying. S8 has good battery.
I don't understand why people can't admit s8 is the best phone out there. It's so simple.
You talk about lagging. I dont' understand why people who never handle latest samsung phones talk about lagging. My Last year s7 edge never lagged out of box. I use only games, google apps or social apps (facebuk tweeter whatspp viber snap and other ..) microsoft apps (outlook words etc...) adobe camera 360 etc... and my phone never lag (nothing serious to mention appart little scrolling lags). I don't call it lag because all mobiles in market do that sometimes. If you install all apps found in playstore made by unknowns and entry levels developpers it's normal your mobile lag. Everybody can develop apps on android platform so there are many buggy apps on playstore. Safe apps doesn't lag your phone.
I speak french so excuse me to my bad english but test and handle a mobile before making bad comments. S8/s8+ are the best phones out there. Go and test on a store before making feedbacks.
Samsung Galaxy seems like an amazing phone, but is it better than the Huawei Mate 9??
Vchamp2k, 08 May 2017Why not samsung release or considered a s8 mini version of 5.5" edge screen with the same size... moreStop complaining, it's almost the same size as S7 flat which is in fact almost the same size as an 4.7' iPhone 7 with mammoth bezels.
Anonymous, 08 May 201732 bit 384 kHz without internal DAK!? Anyone do you explain about that?It simply means Audio quality
Not dak..... it is Dac
ON PAPER 32-bit in S8 seems better than "Music Boy SONY XZ premium"
BUT XZ premium has built-in Dac and it means you have got stunning amazingaudio and music quality, especially in headphones
S8 does not have built-in Dac and it means poor shallow audio and music quality
XZ premium's DSEE HX engine for audio will UPSCALE your no3 and low audio file to stunning amazing Hi-res audios
Competition in the market??
I confidently says "NO"
As SONY is unique in this audio field
iPhone is excellent when it comes to audio XZ premium is "a champion"
Loudness does not mean class leading audio...Rich,deep,clearity ,and smooth means amazing audio
Numbers are numbers ... Numbers doesn't' show real things
Have a niceday, friend
Why not samsung release or considered a s8 mini version of 5.5" edge screen with the same size of S4/S5? Or is it in the works? By this they could have even reaped more customers in my opinion and thats what I would have termed as a true innovation... 5.8" for S8 sounds to be big for most of the people, unless someone has hands on S8 to appreciate its innovation.. But still I feel S8 is quite tall in compared with S7. I agree S8 is narrower than S7, but since it is quite tall, fitting into the pocket is challenge.
AnonD-39079, 07 May 2017I have given up justifying to the trolls over here. Trolls will be trolls. No matter what they... moreSame like fanboy they will always praise it and never see the flaws in it.
Super phone really in every department if u got a hand on it. Best thing was it sleek as a 4.7inch iphone to hold by single hand. Super display, super camera, super fast cpu...Iphone 7 plus plus?? nah...perhaps iphone 8s will beat this.
32 bit 384 kHz without internal DAK!? Anyone do you explain about that?
atb , 07 May 2017I cant understand people who complain about the fingerprintsanner i think that is wrong i use ... moreS8 may be good at least for you....
LET's dig deeply to S8 territory
(1) Speed test field
Here iPhone 7plus is an undisputed champion
Even iPhone 6s plus obliterates all Android phone
As we are Android users, we set aside Apple phones
Oh my godness...SONY non-flagship XZs is a winner except some games according to vloggers
(2) Performance field
Many reviews point out that S8 UI I keep lagging and has some frame drops
Samsung home virtual button area has screen burn -in issue because Amoled always switch On and Off every time
So deep black is not produced by Amoled and it is only aspixel-off area meaning black parts are screen off area and so black wallpapers and background save the battery
(3) Camera field
Unfortunately XZ premium blow out S8 with class leading Motion Eye camera
We should not talk dual camera in iphone 7plus and LG g6 as S8 has unimpressed single camera
(4) Durability and batteryS8 is made of glass UNSURPRISINGLY it is extremely fragile and many drop test point out the real fact
You account for S8 battery is 2-day span but strangely even samsung can't promise that 2-day span perhaps you are the Samsung's CEO....(Don't mind it is only probability)
Another way for 2-day use is to downgrade 720p and runs for whole two days with crappy 720p
With these facts I Don't mean not to buy S8 and it is a pure beauty for your eyes ONLY
regressive design that memory card and sim 2 has to share slot so you have to choose while mid range and low end phones have dedicated slot.
regressive design that you need to pick up phone to unlock it since fingerprint scanner is at the back while older model already have it in front. so what if the reason was so that the screen can be wider as most movies will have black bar on the side since aspect ratio is not standard. and the physical home button is still essential with android as software home button will not function all the time.
AnonD-1385, 07 May 2017What kind of vague response is that? 100 mnt = 100 minutes. Pls get some idea dude...
Anyone think I should sell my s7edge for this one, I'm kinda stuck in two minds.
Anonymous, 07 May 2017how is the battery backup of the phone????Battery is probably like the best in any phone yet.
Great Device.. in UAE they already implemented Samsung Pay and its really handy..but u need a Mashreq account. The Etisalat version is a bit expensive, but there is always mobileshop.ae to get phones for the less price. And it like working fine in my country egypt also. Good job samsung.
