Bixby is useless (I don't live in the USA)
Biometrics are flaky - it's quicker just to use the old pin method
No Voice Command - WTF Samsung??
Have a serious think before buying the S8
Anonymous, 26 May 2017Samsung should also work in compact mini phones with high end specs and good design to o I sure agree! compact sizes with same features than those bulky ones are better and handy
Samsung should really try creating a high end compact phones. Bulky or big sizes phone is nice but compact sizes with same features are way better and handy!

Galaxy S7 Edge has got 3600 mAh and for Galaxy S8 isn't low 3000 mAh?

This isn't a small thing as it's how computers evolved by fitting large in small. Even small things are lot smarter in S8, screenshot? Now it's not just screenshot, one can scroll down to take the screenshot of any length of page, crop it right away, pin it on top and even take a animated gif screenshot. These things are very useful in extracting required information. Then there are things Apple is still dreaming about, fast wireless charging, ability to use two app accounts in one phone, the best vr experience (it'll support daydream too). S8 is a complete smartphone with fully loaded hardware and software.

Hacking your digital signature (biometric or not) is not impossible. You'll see in the video that how tough it is to hack your iris signature and why the iris scanner is still the best to use among all the other security signatures.

However, one can easily remove traces of fingerprint, swipe/patter or codes by simply wiping the fingerprint scanner/screen after. It could be as simple as wiping it on your clothing. No special cloth or cleaning solution needed.
Bro, even the fingerprint scanner can be hacked and it has been done since long now. No biometric solutions are perfect. And the detail and time you need to create the false biometric entry, it is awfully time consuming. You have to draw the iris or take a picture of it with good details and resolution, afterwards print it in the perfect size and then put a pair of contact lenses in the perfect spot. Do you really think that's worth the time?
The similar way, fingerprint scanner contains your finger's print in the form of oil, which can be retracted from the scanner with simple duct tape and with pencil led and a white paper you can make it visible and gain access through the fingerprint scanner.
Swipe unlock/pattern unlock can be viewed if you hold the device at an angle toward the light as the screen contains the oil from your face and leaves the trace of your pattern.
The password, knock code (used by LG) & pin codes are the only things you can use without worrying too much. Even they leave the marks of your finger's touch, so there is always permutation and combination for that and they are not secure as well if you think that way.
So the ideal way to stay secure is not to use a touch phone at all or to keep your secured data in a secured place instead in your phone.

- if u are comparing with iphone 7 720p d... moreLol. S8 is ugly! Says someone who uses a phone that can't transfer a simple file to another device over Bluetooth, over WiFi, can't use NFC anywhere else other than iPay. Okay, even if we assume that the first two will endanger your valuable data, what about the third one? That actually is painful, watching others just tap and change there device's modes and connect with other devices. I can feel your pain, dude. When the whole world is moving ahead with tech, you are using a 720p screen in the name of best screen, Bluetooth in the name of security, NFC the same, and the design is the same, the same. If you say S8 feels like plastic, I'd suggest you immediately check with a skin doctor, you have serious problem in your hand's skin. This is one point no other phone is able to compete S8. Looks-wise it is the best looking device of 2017, if you don't think so, I suggest you take an appointment with an eye specialist as well.
Your other points are arguable and differs from person to person. No one likes a Camera which provides natural colour. I love photography and this is my personal experience that people loves over-saturated pictures. Yes, you can manually do that, but what's the problem if Samsung saves you a few clicks? I already said this topic will vary to people's choice. So don't waste your time by arguing.
People uses iPhone for prestige. But, hey, when anyone and everyone have something, it doesn't stay prestigious anymore. Think about it. You've been cheated since the very beginning. And that is why you are so mad at everyone. We understand, but we can only feel sorry, then move along with or lives.
Take care. Stay happy. Ciao...
lol , 26 May 2017the red tint issue it's already corrected and you can use the Iris scanner, duuh... The iris scanner has been hacked recently.
lol , 26 May 2017the red tint issue it's already corrected and you can use the Iris scanner, duuh... The red tint issue is not real. Hah. S8 has a feature of increasing or decreasing RGB level on its screen. The youtubers or other people who showed the red tint just increased the red saturation level.
