Samsung phones are smooth for the Ford 2-3 months. Then you need to reset. Not sure why.

You mean restart? You should do that with all phones my iPhone 7+ lags too after 2-3 months of being left on.
What makes it worse is because people used to say how lag free and smooth the iPhone 7 is I became sensitive to it... ignorance is bliss sometimes!

My iPad 4 is hell. It should be because its 5 years old device but it was like this within 2 years. The biggest problem is Apps. Apple can't optimize Apps especially Google Apps. Youtube runs better on my OPO then my friends iPhone 7 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S8 named “best smartphone display”, concludes DisplayMate
Quote:
Samsung’s smartphones and TVs have been known to feature some really good-looking displays with sharp images and bright colors. But the Galaxy S8 is said to take things to a whole new level of “wow”. (Galaxy S8 hands-on here) DisplayMate, who specializes in performing display tests for color accuracy and calibration has given the Galaxy S8’s display its highest mark yet: an ‘A+’.

We have no doubt that the Galaxy S8 can carry the title of the “best smartphone display on the market”. After all, Samsung’s Infinity Display has a lot going for it, according to DisplayMate’s findings: the display can reach a peak brightness 1020 nits, which is well over some of the brightest smartphone display we’ve ever tested ourselves.

Been using a g6 for almost a week now. Was tempted by the s8 but after using the s6 and experiencing slow downs i said enough is enough with touchwiz. Also the curved display turned me away, using my brothers s7e is such a pain.

Use developer mode to gain access to the hidden touchwiz settings and turn them down or outright disable them. Helps make the s7 a lot better and doesn't require rooting.

Biggest non-surprise in the history of tech news! Seriously, the S8's screen is so far and away better than any other smart phone its just laughable. You really have to see the infinity display in person to truly appreciate it (similar to OLED TV's in the store). When you see it you immediately recognize how much better it really is than anything else on the rack.

Just a minor correction but the iPhone is IP67 while the S7 and S8 are IP68. Not much of a difference but still a difference in the certification.

And I agree that it is one of the major innovations of modern smart phones along with wireless and fast charging. I can recharge my S7E from near dead to 100% wirelessly in around an hour or so and even less using the cable charger.
