The cpu on the s8 is hardly any faster than the s7 just a slight variation this is also true with sony xz premium and their earlier phones. I think this points to the fact that android has hit the wall in performance right now there is little to be gained from tech companies using faster cpu's with android phones the os and apps have been too easy to run for the last 3 years with no lag with even 2014 phones such as the samsung Alpha which turned out to be faster than the s5 due to its octa core and lower screen resolution.. So now what for the 2018 models? I cant see what could be improved that would make a difference. The android os and games are not high end or taxing enough for 2-3 year old cpus the os was always designed to be snappy to run anyway. I cant see any reason performance or feature wise why people who buy the s8 would need to upgrade for at least 2 years unless they just want to have the latest and look on point.
neonled, 15 Aug 2017no bro. it's gonna be such a marvellous phone with a 4000 even 5000 mah battery. look at xiaom... moredo u have any brain ?
u r comparing xiaomi's midranges with flagships ??
which planet do u come from ?

At the moment it's a toss up ... moreno bro. it's gonna be such a marvellous phone with a 4000 even 5000 mah battery. look at xiaomi a company with less experience from samsung and apple put 4000 battery in a "flagship" what do you call that ? believe me it's all about how companies tend to suck our pockets with less costs they afford. but some day will come when people start to know how much they were fooled by spending their money thinking new flagships was really innovative than these were behind
Dirk , 13 Aug 2017I agree with you completely.
What I do is THIS.
I have leather wallet case for mine. Which ... moreLove that phone, everything is perfect...
I always put it in a small pouch when i have the phone with me, to prevent it from scratches in my pocket. But i always use it without any kind of protection, i am just very careful.

At the moment it's a toss up between better performance, speed or better battery life. Having such a big battery with a powerful chip-set may cause issues with the battery heating up and the device loosing performance through throttling. It seems all devices are playing it safe with roughly the same type of battery.

no name, 15 Aug 2017lollllll y y onli 3000mah ....even mid range give 4000mah.... y...yyyHave you seen the tests on YouTube!!! No, then I suggest you do. The battery life is also determined by the hardware and software like a 10nm chip that the 835 and exynos 8895 has. But after reading your posts this may be hard for you to understand.
no name, 15 Aug 2017 u really think snapdragon 835 better than 650??? yes on paper yes..... actuall no...y ? those... moreSnapdragon 650 better than 835!! What!!! You are joking right. That's why Qualcomm them self's who created the chips charge company's a hefty price difference and put the 835 chips into flagship devices only to have there lower and midrange chips better. It's a conspiracy people!!!! You are sure telling me....
winner, 15 Aug 2017Fast charging?? fast charging kill battery even faster.... when fast charging battery heat up.... moreYes that's why all latest flagship phones have fast charge, so the manufacturers can pay billions on making and testing batteries only to pay billions out for recalls on all the devices they try to make money on, makes perfect business sense doesn't it. as Samsung found out last year when they were hit with a massive recall loosing billions, it's better to make sure the batteries are safe and working or they could be hit with financial loss through warranty claims. You are so cleaver!!!!

As for th... moreFast charging?? fast charging kill battery even faster.... when fast charging battery heat up.... if battery heat up the life span reduces.... ( not proven yet.. believe it or not up to u) but 1 thing is sure.... the more fast charging means the more cycle u use means the more it ko faster....(simple hahahaaha)...

As for th... more u really think snapdragon 835 better than 650??? yes on paper yes..... actuall no...y ? those antutu rating actually combine all the 8 core performance and act as marketing tool to promote high end processor.... actually most mobile only use 2 core only and max four core and the rest is unused..each core is like a hand .... one hand do one job... initally the processor company introduce 2 core because operating system need 1 core and app / game need another then go to quad core.... actually quad core is the max that is needed .... y 8 core.... unless u open 7 game/ app and operating system... then u need it hahahaha... actually what we need is higher processing speed for each core but for today technology already saturated at 2.xxx ghz per core... so increasing the no. of core is really no use..those antutu rating is just to show i am superior by combining all 8 core performance as hardly all core will be used... so actually 650 n 835 is almost the same u wont fell the difference.... it is the same as ram ... now 6gb and 8gb ram .... actually how much ram a phone actually use?? the rest is actually unused....
Nickie, 12 Aug 2017~570 ppi pixel density Awesome !!807ppi is better. 😂
SaRPeR, 12 Aug 2017Actually it lasts 2 days.So battery use on screen is 48hours plus ?
[deleted post]Why bother!!! if you don't like the device that's fine. I do along with many others. As for the battery I don't want a phone that has this amount of power only to reduce the functions and performance to save battery. As proven on many YouTube videos and reviews this phone lasts longer that the majority of devices available from 2017. Why buy a phone only to reduce its performance because of the battery when it's not that bad? Isn't that why the devices all have fast charge now!!!!!
Lafer, 14 Aug 2017Oneplus 5 of S8 ?if u want budget oriented....go for op5
if u wanna best of all....go for s8
