not very impressive specs.... only improvement is the larger screen, 3D touch, new processor, iris scanner and stereo speakers. Heck, even the battery capacity got smaller. I don't see any reason to upgrade from S7/S7 Edge
Two main downsides in S8:
1. For screen having 1440 x 2960 pixels, 3000 MAH battery is very very less. In both S6 Edge and S7 Edge, the major problem is battery drain due to high screen resolution. At least 4000 MAH is required for S8.
2. Camera needs to be updated. S6, S7 and S8 all are having 12 MP Cam? Seriously? Not impressive at all.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2017No removable battery. So will it support wireless charging It says market dependent in the specs, hopefully it's not the LG G6 bs where the asian version gets a quad DAC while the US gets the wireless charging
2:1 screens are gonna flop so bad... These people know shit about ergonomics. FFS, do they even golden ratio??

How about we put some decent stereo front speakers instead of making the screen bigger???
Hggffffg, 14 Mar 2017Galaxy s8 ugly look waste of money go for galaxy j7 You must be trolling. Can you even buy a phone that is crappier than the J7 at that price point? Honestly, £200 for a phone with 720p, 267ppi display, 1080p@30 video, 1.5 Gb RAM, USB 2.0, no gyro sensor and only 3000mAh battery?! You only pay for a preety box that has Samsung written on it, telling the world you canÂ’t afford the real one.
5.8 inch is my only problem i wanted it to be 5 or 5.1 inch max.......the other features are going to be better like the ram will be 4 GB ......A better phone but i don't prefer bigger once
Don't like the look of this one, I'll stick with my S7 until S9 comes (If S9 looks better than this one).
jesse.clark, 12 Mar 2017My S6 edge from 2015 never lagged and still work as smooth as a new phone. You must have some ... moreLmao im sorry but did I just hear you say the S7 Edge is low end? Well, honestly, I'd just wait for the trusty devs at XDA to make some custom ROM port of some custom kernel.........
21st april is final launch date? and is there any changes on devices or same as seen before?
I haven't seen any feature which can be considered as genuine or unique for Samsung because all the mobiles belong to Samsung are mimicking to other devices. Evenin case of the new s8 (the plus one has double cameras as in IPhone,the processor as in sony premium xz )
Arian Adler, 13 Mar 2017According to dr strangelove! Yea you're right %100 after XZp S8 in second hand not badWe will see wether s8 camera camera can face the new sony premium camera or not!
