And hopefully they stop loading it up with excessive bloatware for providers...they caused so many firmware issues with the S7 with incompatibilities between their carrier bloatware+update structure.

As long as these issues exist I will NEVER touch another Samsung phone again.

Same.

I don't want to feel this way but... I'm done with Samsung phones. For now. Not until they shape and do things more my style or how I'd like.


Neither of these look very good either.

I'm honestly not really enticed to switch from my S7 Edge either. The biggest problem with these bezel-less/curved/infinity displays is that the screen protectors don't really work on them. And the screens scratch so easily.

I'm curious what Apple comes up with later this year and will likely make a decision at that point what to go with. Either way, the S8 will undoubtedly show up a few hundred dollars cheaper on eBay in a few months anyway since their resale value is really bad compared to Apple.

My Problem was I have Verizon and got stuck to using the old outdated firmware for even longer while everyone else was happy.


But Honestly this should have never been a problem. Before Android OS was using a full GB of RAM to itself, and another 500mb's for the UI. The New 7.0 update had fixed this in a massive way. OS eats around 700mb's and the UI only eats around 100Mbs. Bloatware is still a problem though, I wish they would just gut all that SVoice crap. Only thing I like is SHealth, get rid of the rest IMO.

I don't think anyone expect anyone to be upgrading from the S7 any time soon. I don't understand the people that upgrade their phone every 6-8months, seems like a money pit. Even S6 users are fine where they are at, it is the s5 users that should think about upgrading.

2 years per phone is probably the most common for most of us here.

I went to Best Buy after work today, and they've already got the S8 and S8+ on display. Not gonna lie... the phones look gorgeous. All I hope is that Samsung got the user experience right with this phone.

Probably just going to get a used S7 Edge. Loved my S6 Edge for how long I had it. Was going to get S8 but they did not improve the camera or battery so no point to spending more then double the money for looks alone.

I'm actually thinking about getting it for the new GearVR. It's a wider screen, so we might get a wider FOV as well.

I loved Gear VR and the problem with it is no FOV. Its the screen door effect.

Yea, I remember that about trying out my friend's GearVR. It was cool, but the pixelation was real.

I'm conflicted. I could sell my iPhone 7 128GB model, pay off what I have left on it, and use my Note 4 until the S8 is released.

...or, I could be perfectly happy with my iPhone 7 (which has been amazing since the day I got it) and wait for the next generation of Samsung phone.


Such a dilemma.

Such a dilemma.

To me S8 is only a "Show off" upgrade from S7. Not sure how invested you are in iOS at this point to move back to Android. Biggest problem I have with Samsung is "Duplicate Apps". Dont get me wrong I like some Samsung Apps better but Google Apps can be used with any phone even iPhone which makes it easy.

Dont get me wrong I like some Samsung Apps better but Google Apps can be used with any phone even iPhone which makes it easy.

That's the thing... I've only had my iPhone for about 6 months. I'm not heavily invested in it.

I played around with the S8 at Best Buy, and it was very smooth and intuitive to use. Because it had that stupid DEMO overlay, it was a little choppy, but that should be fixed by launch. I will say that the iPhone has spoiled me with how smooth and quick it is, especially with the iOS 10.3 update. I cannot make it lag now. It does everything I need it to do, and it does it very quickly.

Basically, what I'm saying is that Samsung has impressed me with the design of the S8. Now, they need to impress me with the usability, and in that regards, I think the best they can do at this point is match the refinement of iOS. Based on the proposed speed of the SoC in the S8, though, I don't think that's possible. Apple is just so far ahead with their A10 chip.
