Is it worth it to buy an s8 before s9's announcement? Because there's a sale going on for the s8 for RM2662. Normal price was RM3299 and price for one plus is RM2499

Also consider the features that each phone gives you and the eco systems and ask yourself would you use them? E.g Gear VR

You could argue that the Sony phone is a more robust phone but in all honesty neither would withstand many pavement/side walk falls without a high risk of damage.
The Sony phone boasts higher resolution But the S8' do both have gorgeous super amoled displays.
Another thing to consider could be the screen ratio, which is 18.5:9 on the S8 and S8Plus and 16:9 on the Sony. Much more manufacturers are producing 18.5:9 screen sizes at the moment and as the market increases more and more content is being produced for 18.5:9 screens BUT not all content is, meaning that to watch a movie as it was originally intended in 16:9 for example will mean that the whole of the screen on the S8 or S8 Plus will not be used and the S8 or S8 Plus will kind of morph into the apperence of the Sony phone as two black bars will apear either side of the video like the big bezels on the Sony :)
I have seen more evidence that indicates that you will get more Screen on Time with the S8's, especially the S8 Plus.
Personally I wouldn't stress over it too much, they are both really good phones, try each one out as much as you can, I'm sure your friends will let you see the phone in action. Play movie clips, play games etc, have a look, hold the phone and see what phone feels the best in your hand.
Check out as many reviews as possible, a good starting point would be a head to head reviews such as this ..
Check out the comparison tool here if you have not done so already and never be scared to ask any question no matter how stupid it sounds.

quorer, 16 Feb 2018XZp or S8?S8 way better. XZP for just display and updates, S8 for anything else. Performance, battery, superior camera, durability, wireless charging.

quorer, 16 Feb 2018XZp or S8?If big bezels and camera is not your priority then go for the XZp.
quorer, 16 Feb 2018XZp or S8?If you have no issues with Sonys big bezels design then absolutely the xz premium, look at the Galaxy s9 specifications, Samsung supported it with features over the s8 which are actually available in the xz premium last year, i think you understood what i mean.
.Andy., 14 Feb 2018why ?"Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible"
