Anonymous, 13 Feb 2017Thank you for understanding this, I only have 8gb of ram in my computeroom and why waste space... moreYou have to realize that these phones need to be capable of playing 4k 3d 360 videos, while also using an accelerator to track head movements. As well as upload and download constant amounts of large data, on both 4g and advanced wifi, keep track of gps data, update numerous apps that continuously run in the background, handle an advanced and precise touchscreen interface, be able to take stunning pictures seconds after turning on the camera, record high definition video, run apps like snapchat that utilize face detection and on the fly video effects, interface with constant devices such as bluetooth headsets or fitness trackers, and still work as phone and texting devices which utilizes a whole different form of wireless called GSM. Also unlike computers, phones nowadays rarely get rebooted to clear out ram. So yes obviously on more basic usage, 8gb would be more than enough. But this phone was not designed for basic usage. This is the most advanced phone ever to be made. If they do not put enough ram, the phones could crash or slow, or become out of date in months because they would not be able to handle the newest app demand. If you put all of the features and devices of this phone onto your computer with only 8gb, it would have issues. But if your computer is only used for web browsing, youtube, and Word. It's not a fair comparison at all.
I own a Galaxy S7. It's a great phone so far.
S8 will be no big difference even though I thought it would be because of the Note 7 scandal.
But as far I see the specs here, there is no significant difference in the two devices. Anyway let's wait for the official announcement.
I'm sorry but I'm not going to buy the next flagship if it's not fully metal. Really became sick of these glass phones

As for 8GB in your computer - I also think you don't know how computers operate with swap files etc.
There is Storage 32/64/128 and then there is ram a computer uses for processing.

Some praises overly "BIXBY" assistance of Samsung
Of course Samsung is still pragmatic to BIXBY
While SIRI has supported more than 30 languages worldwide
Google assistance and Amazon's Alexa are best competitor s of Apple's own "AI assistance SIRI"
Moreover Apple Facebook Amazon and Google have established a special team for AI to develop the performance of AI
I am an Android user and start disappointing google's Androidsystem bloatware and horrible battery drains and other battery problems despite Android makers support bigger and bigger battery
My next phone will be versatilehone 8 with stunning speed and outstanding performance s
AnonD-393112, 27 Jan 20173000 mAh with Snapdragon 835 is like 5000mAh with Snapdragon 821.In this case, Samsung may drink a lawsuit for monopoly behavior,. mobile division and one for the manufacture of chips obviously work together,. which is prohibited by the laws of monopoly...
The S8 will only be a S7 with a bigger display in the same body. With the logical evolution when it comes to the soc. But same calmera, same or worse battery, same touchwizz we have seen for yearsÂ…but more expensiveÂ… take a s6 and see what has really changed between that model and the coming s8...
Polan, 11 Feb 2017If Samsung thinks people will buy this, they are on some seriously good drugs..lolBetter than Apple. Samsung actually cares and listens to their customers.

We need a 4.8 inch screen mobile. That is the most suitable size for our daily use. Flat screen is better without edge. Still love s3 and s4 design.

Then, IBM computer from 40 years ago smarter than 8 year old Siri. Hahaha. All I can say is one year old Google Assistant is way way smarter than your Siri.
Sa far everything looks amazing except for battery. I understand they will optimize the phone well, but I don;t care. That 3000mAh is enough to put me personally off, hang on to my S7 Edge and either wait for the Note 8 or see what LG is bringing out (I don't particularly like the skin on Sony, Huawei, Apple or HTC so for me it needs to be either LG or Samsung)..
It looks like Samsung is backing down again - for a while they understood people want battery life more than anything; now they rather regress again...
I'd consider holding my trash phone and money before S8 is going to be released if its price would be 700 (or less) euro but wth, 800 euro? You got high samsung or smt?
