Its a shame all vendor are hand in hand in cheating the customers they have flooded the market with 5" mobile until now, from 2018 foldable phone with compact form factor will be released to generate revenue if people start using one mobile set for 5-6 years revenue generation will be minimised mobile vendors are playing with consumers needs viz a viz requirements.
1. Remove user replaceable battery started by Apple so that handset will not last more than 4-5 years since apple hardware is much better compared to Android hardware therefore handset might last for eternity which apple does not want.
2. Remove SD card from mobile started by Apple iPhone
3. All new handsets difficult to repair post Samsung Galaxy S6 including replacing glass which cost 20% of the cost of handset is it really that expensive answer is NO. Since consumers have started repairing handsets for 100$ instead of buying 600$ new handset.
4. Introducing handsets 5" and above later bendable phones will be realsed which will be under 5" but can be expanded to 6" and above Samsung Galaxy X is an example.
Samsung after latest software update Security Patch DATE did not change Still August 1 , is your recent software already obsolete and old.

Worth also checking to see if Samsung have the same offer In your country as they do in the UK at the moment. Buy an S8 or S8 Plus between 28th Sept and the 2nd November 2017 and get a free VR Headset and controller.

AnonD-344998, 12 Oct 2017Atlast on tuesday my retailer called me and offer an upgradation to s8+ by paying 50% of price... moreGreat stuff, I also have the S8 Plus it's a fantastic phone and I find the additional capacity of the battery is another reason to go for the S8 Plus. Couldn't agree more as regards to the fingerprint scanner position. It was blown out of all proportion and I find it even better than being placed on the front for the reasons I have outlined previously.
Well at last you have got your hands on the phone now and I have no doubts it will live up to all your expectations. Glad to have you on board. Best wishes :)
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2017Also you have nothing to lose from calling them up in the meantime, and voicing your frustrati... moreAtlast on tuesday my retailer called me and offer an upgradation to s8+ by paying 50% of price difference . I did it and really, worth it.
I was confused about the size of s8+ but, believe me, it is really awesome. No problem with size or position of fingerprint scanner in my opinion

I think comparing the designs of phones that were on the market over a decade ago to the smartphones currently on the market doesn't take into account the leaps in technology. e.g If manufacturers back then were able to produce a screen that was edge to edge I'm pretty sure that they would of done so.
no name, 12 Oct 2017cheeehhh nothing new... in my country preorder gift for note 8 is vr headset + battery samsung... morePlease note this is not an offer aimed at people that have bought the note 8 but those who have bought or are going to buy the S8 of S8 Plus between 28 Sept -02 Nov
Yeah, I'm aware that these offers are available during pre-order phase but what made this different was the ability to Claim a free VR Headset if you had bought an S8 or S8 Plus during a specific time period well after launch (28 Sept -02 Nov)
I have the VR set headset with controller and I must say it's a huge selling point for opting for Samsung and I don't see it discussed here enough and promoted as such.
It's getting better and better and particularly some of the exclusives are amazing. I have watched live concerts and it is just fantastic to watch a live performance in VR with the headphones in , in many ways it's better than actually being there, the sound is incredible, you are on stage with the band....just mind blowing at times... Also some big sporting events are also broadcast live in VR. I watched the French Open (Tennis) live in VR and it was an amazing experience I had the best seat in the house sitting right behind the player, incredible I also had the ability to change the view ...... very very immersive and certainly a huge selling point for Samsung and one in which people considering their next purchase of a smartphone should consider when weighing up the pros and cons for each smartphone out there.
@no name , by everything you said, it's clear as bright day that you´re child and funboy of Apple. That's ok :)
You've mentioned screen resolution? Lets see: S8 1440 x 2960, 570 ppi, on the other hand Iphone 8 750 x 1334, 326 ppi ?! And we talk about Apple´s phone for 2018. It's embarrassing. If you say that Samsung has same screen resolution for few years, than you can imagine how far Apple is.
In one thing youve got the point. Apple is selling brand. And that's about it.
You're not neutral, you're Apple funboy. Enjoy using your phone and let other people do the same with theirs. Child.
AnonD-623808, 12 Oct 2017Isn't it what all manufacturers do every year? Increase screen size, add some additional RAM, ... morelolllll.... i just mention iphone update didnt mean i am apple fans, i now own iphone plus and also several android phone... hahahaa and never says apple has many changes.... u must understand apple is selling brand and its exclusive operating system... ( how many company in this world can has own operating system as successfull as apple? ans : none.... samsung tizen/ titan? doa.... lollll not to mention the seamless between hardware n software of ios that make it the fastest like F1 lollll....
there are many changes between s5 and s6 ??? (if u say s7 and s8 still acceptable) dont make me laugh lollll what the difference?? design change ??? lollll (same) ....material (??? may be change glass or wat)? lollll...quality? vowwww lollll..... mind to share.... using same screen resolution QHD (1440) since note 4 until note 8 or s9? s10? note 10?? except copy xiaomi mi mix bezelless screen and add facial recognition i dont see any innovation from samsung...
(as a neutral fan) ::: since ur b..rand is not as strong as apple and u r sharing common operating system android with all other brand.... must improve alot on innovation or else ( all the c.hine.se brand that offer high spec and low price) is behind u loolllll
no name, 12 Oct 2017cheeehhh nothing new... in my country preorder gift for note 8 is vr headset + battery samsung... moreIsn't it what all manufacturers do every year? Increase screen size, add some additional RAM, slightly improve cameras etc... What did Apple do since iPhone 6, 6s, 7 and now 8... it's basically the same phone. Did you ever hold in hand Galaxy S5 and S6, its imposible not to see huge difference in terms of design, materials and quality. I respect Apple, I had several iPhones myself, but at this point of time, S series is way ahead in every way possible.
The best and full useful mobile set.
In my opinion Apple couldn't be a strong competitor.
it look good and great performance device fingerprint at the back is bad idea vivo put fingerprint under display thats great

scorpio, 12 Oct 2017Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Go get your eyes checked.it would be to much to say it is ugly but to be honest it is nothing more (below average) just a rectangular full screen glass phone, no good design or renovation... just rectangular glasss..... gone were the best old day ... may be during my generation before 2005.....phone from sony ericsson , samsung were so good in design , slim slide phone.... every new model were different in shape n design.... now all phone were rectangular full screen box design.
no name, 11 Oct 2017Also i forget to mention about Apples iphone,That if u get Iphone X it will be easy to get aws... moreWhat a ridiculous statement. So you only buy an iphone in order to hopefully impress others around you and show off that you have an iphone. Are you that insecure?
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2017One word... UglyBeauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Go get your eyes checked.
no name, 11 Oct 2017Well U dont have to be confuse since I'm here to help u :-).Well in My opinion go for Iphone X... moreOk thanx bro for your help. I'm thinking of getting iPhone, X as I've been using IPhone from the past 2 years and I'm very well comfortable and addicted to iOS. This new debate was little confusing for me over the comparison of Note 8 and IPhone X and I've been observing that there is an enormous criticism on Apple since the announcement of IPhone 8/8plus and X and people were generally appreciating Note 8 and even Galaxy s8. But I think I will go for iPhone X just because of iOS even if it lacks some features in comparison with Note 8
