So I got the S8 and played with it for a while.. What I can see it's an amazing beautiful phone but that's about it ,functionality starting from the fingerprint rubbish the battery on S8 you would you be expecting with the new phone the battery will last a little longer but no the battery and the camera yeah about the same like the S7, is what people are saying and thinking this will kill the iPhone but this is far from truth apart from the screen of that is amazing if you keep it on high settings which will drain your battery very quickly I would rather go for an iPhone 6 any time so I conclude by saying this is one of the most beautiful phone but as useless as ever and the new setting on android makes it even more complicated I have a feeling they're going to be as complicated as window very soon but if you're looking for a phone to look good go for the s8 . The new Porsche design by HUAWEI is light-years ahead of this phone try it yourself to believe it

s7 using imx260 while s8 using imx333, the first number sony sensor model usually represents generation, so the imx333 in s8 is more technologically advanced than the imx260 in s7 one.
A truly unique phone by design and who can't love the wqhd+ mobile premium hdr screen? Processing power and gpu computing has been taken to the new level (correction to the cpu speeds; Exynos 8895 2.5 Ghz + 1.7 Ghz; Snapdragon 835 2.45 Ghz + 1.9 Ghz). And surprisimgly the Exynos chip is more powerful and beats the iphone 7 plus by 11%. The only downsides are these: only 4 gigs of ram (Samsung let the Huawei lead in that area) instead of 6, very bad fingerprint position, small camera upgrade (though that's not too much of a problem but I would prefer the 16mp that was on the S6), Bixby is currently not very usable (tried it myself) at least for now and finally the battery could be a bit better (inspite of surprisingly outlasting the s7 by around 30 minutes while gaming and a whole hour while surfing). Due to these flaws I intend to wait for the note 8 and since it will be made to battle iPhone 8 I expect that these issues will be removed. Thumbs up.
The fewer different versions of the S8/S8+ there are the faster we get updates...
Kunal, 20 Apr 2017Does Indian version has FM Radio ?There's only two version - the international and the American, unfortunately non of those have what you asked for at least maybe for now or so.

I'm a photography fan, so i don't need any dual camera gimmick, phone maker company should focus on creating bigger and better sensor, and also upgrading the lens quality.

Apart from camera and lack of stereo speakers just made me skip S8 and wait for Note8. Apple will definitely reuse their 7's camera in their upcoming flagships. Samsung may be following their major competitor in this regard. But i hope Samsung will bring dual camera or a better camera with their Note8.

The phone is beautiful. Saw it today. Felt very slim in hand. Smaller than I thought. The curve corner doesnt affect anything at all. That is where the notification shade and on screen button located. Tried the camera. Awesome exposure level. Great preservation of details too. Little loss in zooming. Video sample is astonishing. Could it be the hdr content, not sure. Audio is better than the S7 now. Much improvement made. The fingerprint sensor arent as bad as the media said it. Could get used to it in a week or two. I wish I could test the akg earphone but they dont have that for testing.

The infinity display is undoubtedly phenomenal, but the ultimate downfall (and the total deal breaker for me) is there is no upgrade in its primary camera. :(
I was expecting it would be at least a dual pixel camera but with a dual camera technology like in iPhone 7.
It did not have a good design
S8 image quality is much lower than Sony and Apple
Curve four corners very ugly
