[Various] Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Announced - Page 10

post #91 of 609
Meh same camera as s7... Looks like i'll upgrade to LG V20 or maybe wait till v30. They really aimed at everything i'm looking for, the dual camera and lens, picture quality really close to google pixel, video bit-rate is crazy high as well as the microphones quality. The extended manual controls and ability to shoot raw and is also amazing and the phone is quite elegantly designed.

Learnt my lesson with my S7; never again buying a smartphone from any manufacturer if they decide to use curved glass for the screen.

Impossible to find a quality screen protector for it.

I tried the V20 as really was no impressed. It does not sell well for a reason. Very disappointed the camera. It was so hard to make much difference vs my LG G3. GS6 I had took way better photos.

There is always a first to hear things.... Even G6 produces better shots than a S6.

A phone not selling does not mean it is not good. It means it is not popular.

As a whole, the market is stagnating. Not a bad thing, it just means innovation won't be at a breakneck pace anymore.

Hopefully the OnePlus 5 will have 256gb and 8gigs with the snapdragon 835 and a headphone jack.Β drool.gif Β 
(Do i need 8gigs of ram on a phone? Nope but why not?)

The 835 and theΒ Headphone jack are the only 2 things that i like about the S8.

You must've missed the actual party piece of the S8 which is its nearly all-screen design that allows the Plus's 6.2" 2960 x 1440p display to fit in a phone no bigger overall than the iPhone 7 Plus. When you consider the micro-SD slot the 64GB storage is more than adequate and the idea that 4GB is not enough memory on a smart phone is ludicrous.

This is true but I've been screen protector-less on my S7 Edge since I got it and its been fine. The GG on this phone is very good and it doesn't have a single scratch on it despite a few drops (of course the case I have it in gets some credit for that as well).

4Gb ram is so old though rolleyes.gif

I expect Samsung to push the boundaries like they use to do. I guess their stuff gets overlooked and called gimmicks when they do.

But there are person out their who don't care for cosmetics and popularity.

Eh, as I've said before, all of the flagship phones these days have basically around the same performance and specs so the main selling point is aesthetics and Samsung has been making the best looking and feeling phones on the market for quite a while now (starting with the S6 and S6 Edge), at least IMO. This new S8/S8+ is absolutely stunning to look at and I am very impressed with the design. It took a little while for me to warm up to the loss of a physical home button on the front but I can see exactly why Samsung made the move. All of the sudden my S7 Edge looks positively archaic compared to the S8!

I am happy the home key is gone and the screen is larger. And like the design.

However I am not going from a phone with 4GB ram to another with 4GB ram. Not for the price it commands.

Makes things worse it has the same camera from S7.

Rather get something cheaper that offers most things.... Like G6.

I will wait to see what the V30 or Note 8 looks like. Note 8 should have fingerprint scanner in glass I hope biggrin.gif

Samsung sure got the design right though thumb.gif
