OP5 is a big no no. Instead as Boebus666 mentioned, if there are budget constraints, go for LG G6. It is bang for the buck at 550$.
LG G6 & S8 have below things in common.
1. Aspect ratio 18.5:9 (futureproof).
2. Dust & water resistant (IP68 certified).
3. Optical Image Stabalisation for primary camera.
OP5 has none of the above.
S8 is expensive coz it has that gorgeous infinity display and latest chipset in SD835.
Hope this helps you.

If you think its to much money for a phone then look for something cheaper.. The LG G6 is a fantastic phone that's pretty cheap at the moment, check it out before you take a call :)
I'm thinking if I should buy this phone or is better not to waste money and just buy an OnePlus 5 , Honor 8 pro? I'm confused.

Think a hype is created before launch and 1st Qtr millions of units sold and over priced, then next month 100$ slashed each month 970$ day one 870 by fifteenth day, now month it's 730 bargained, by July under 700$° Cost is 226$ see 500% margins, that's what it's like every Tom dick and Harry selling cell phones. All Agree!

To ans your question: People who can buy this phone buys it.
Snapdragon S835 is slow??
Phone is ugly? Contradicts GSMarena team and rest of the world:):):)
I pity people like you whose comments are baseless and lacks weight.
Anyways, dont worry mate, you will get a flagship phobe someday.
I just calculate percentage used in a specific time frame with a calculator. If I only used 2% battery in 5 hours, that is 0.40 % per hour.

Nice mini review. Which program do you use to measure the battery usage per hour in standby?
so finally bought an smartphone for myself after half a decade of wait. My last device was samsung galaxy s3, which was quite revolutionary when it was released back in 2012 (when fanboy wars used to be extreme). To my amazement, Galaxy S8 has taken leaps and bounds in over the course of period transforming from a mere smartphone to a super smart phone. Although i have used most of the major smartphones brands from (which i didn't own, more like borrowed) nonetheless like the satisfaction of buying this device. If you reading this and are able to put top money into owning this device (despite it's high price factor) you won't be disappointed but it doesn't mean other oem's are worse. For once i see all the features more useful and did not feel gimmicky to me. My fave is Iris scanner which is absolutely faster than finger touch/swipe/pin, astonished how they managed to put such sophisticated tech to phone. In the past i used to be disappointed how their design language were never innovated but glad that they made serious contribution to us people. Thank you gsmarena team for the review it was quite helpful for me to make up my mind.
Doesn't matter how many RAM the OnePlus 5 have, when you need that reliable customer service support and fast turn around for exchange or repair, you won't get it from them. This is why people pay more for Samsung and Apple.

In fact, overall cellular market is such that we (customers) are driven into buying new phones every couple of years (max). We bite the bait everytime:).

Very snappy but a few months of usage with all the apps and download you have done it become sluggish. You think you can outsmart chinese. They outsmarted you by making you buy an overly high speced phone just to release another better version of it a few months later and you will want to buy it again. Their tricks works all the time. No one can resist the 'bigger specs' aspect of the phone and so-called 'low price' by them. Advertise it as futureproof and BAM!!! Sold!!! *2 years later you will find yourself switching to a new phone even when you own this so-called 'futureproof' 8gb ram Oneplus 5.
Joy, 26 Jun 2017Does this heats up easily when playing games like mobile legends or any moba? I'm torn!Depends on how long you playing with it. I only play a few minutes of games a day. Not much a gamer. Never felt any heat so far.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2017Went to store for s8 but because it look like a remote I will go for u11.Good choice!
