Marko, 16 Aug 2017Lol, a gold worth comment. Xiaomi has also flagship phone :D Dude, don't try to look too smart.im dont trying dude.
i know they have flagships.
Marko, 16 Aug 2017Or they have already used this brand and are not satisfied. Including me.By using this brand do you mean an older device. Are you really trying to compare older Samsung technology to this year's tech? I could say the same about ever brand that makes smartphones and use their older devices as an example without using there latest flagship but then that would not be fair now would it.
Marko, 16 Aug 2017Or they have already used this brand and are not satisfied. Including me.I don't believe that for a second otherwise you wouldn't be on this comment section, you would be commenting on your device. Also if your not happy with the purchase I'm sure you would of returned the device withing the 15 day return policy that most service providers provide.
Pros: fast, great screen, a lot of space, great camera, much better batery life compared to my previos phone (S5), much better pics in low light conditions...
Cons: Gorilla Glass 5? Microscratches after a week. I had to put a great looking phone (really incredible design) into a case and with a screen protector, making it look like a brick.
4:3 picture format if you want to take pics with 12MPix. And watching a 4:3 pics on a 18:9 screen means that the pic is on half of the screen. Also, watching it on a 16:9 TV still means that you get black vertical lines. Why Samsung, why?
And if you set the camera to take a 16:9 photos, it means that it crops part of the 4:3 picture, resulting in lower resolution (I think it was 9MP). Stupid...
This chat is a mess. You all talk about drawbacks and things that arent perfect. Well heres the thing. Any kind od tech devoce will NEVER BE PERFECT. Deal with it. You take somewhere and you give somewhere. Thats how it works. And the amount of haters is astounding. And about the battery, I get through my day with 40% left so I spare my battery by charrging it only to 80%. Abd it works. And I have a mophie wireless charging case (the charge force or sth like that) which has 3000mah. Want 4000 mah? Not with current battery technology, unless you want a hole in your pocket (referong to note 7 with unreasonable energy density) and a 200g smartphone. Just turn on the mid battery saver and turn of aod. With battery save on I get a geekbench score of 5582. Thats better than s7 without battery saver. So stop complaining. I am more frustrated by back fungerprint scanner and iris scanner not working through my photo sensitive glasses. Reviews got everything right and don't complain so much. Going from s6 to s8 is a huge leap forward for me as it is for an s7 user. It has around 10-15%better battery life than s7 and on par with S7 edge. It's not all about battery size. It's about efficency. Put a 5nm chip (border where we are not at mercy of quantum effects) in there you get around 50% more efficiency and 25% more power for the same architecture. Just go open minded about this. And yes the exynos model is stronger than Snapdragon 835. Considerably.

neonled, 16 Aug 2017this question supposed to asked to yourself. do you even know what does flagship mean ? htt... moredude....naver compare a chinese flagships with this one...s8 is far better than other flagships on market right now.....its clear that u just see the specs and else in a phone but dont know about how a wellknown brands like lg, samsung, apple, htc...etc manage there software or some little things that none other chinese products do. a flagship mean more than u have shown in this link. i suggest u to use a proper flagship and feel and then comment.
With an advanced 10-nanometer design, the Qualcomm® SnapdragonÂ™ 835 mobile platform can support phenomenal mobile performance. It is 35% smaller and USES 25% LESS POWER THAN PREVIOUS DESIGNS, and is engineered to deliver exceptionally LONG BATTERY USE, lifelike VR and AR experiences, cutting-edge camera capabilities and Gigabit Class download speeds.
LOOK IT UP!!!!
Gotta say it's funny looking at a lot of the comments hating on this device for no real reason, some using software as an excuse others using hardware and battery. I can clearly see these people do not own the device and have no idea what they are on about. Not worth the typing to reply to their comments. Do your research actually use the device for a week then make a comment. Nearly every reviewer on the internet has give this a very high recommendation and have reviewed it as the best device so far in 2017, there's a reason behind that, they have used it.

SIMPLE !!! I don't understand why some people can't comprehend this.
The phone takes less energy to do the same tasks RESULTING in more On Screen Time.

WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT!!!!!! Arghhhhhhhhh ..... we use our phones differently, we get different signal strengh, we make calls and take calls for different lengths, don't make the same amount of texts or use WiFi or download or upload or take the same amount of picture under the same conditions etc etc etc etc WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY!!!!! WE DON'T USE THE PHONES UNDER EXACTLY THE SAME CONDITIONS EACH AND EVERY DAY!!!!!!
We use our phones differently from 1 day to the next!!!!!!! If you want more time from your phone then just SIMPLY USE IT LESS THAN YOU DID BEFORE.
IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE, WHAT IS SOOOOOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?????
If you want to beat everyone on battery life then JUST switch the phone off!!!!!!!

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.

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.
