    I mean, what's the point? It helps give you notifications when faced down with the edges lighting up. Come on, really? Nobody puts their phone down like that. Edge apps? That's nothing more than a toolbar shortcut gimmick. Now sure, it does looks beautiful, but with the curves all around, putting on a screen protector will be a nightmare. The Gorilla Glass 5 is prone to scratching, and with little options to keep the glass protected, the beautiful screen will no longer be beautiful from everyday use (will be an ugly scratched mess). The "wet install" screen protectors are ugly and looks like a sticky mess. With the S7, I've had difficulty putting on screen protectors. Without a screen protector, 1 year later, the phone will have lots of blemishes (unavoidable scratches). So what are your thoughts? Is this just a disposable beautiful phone? How does Samsung expect customers to install screen protectors? They should have at least include a screen protector preinstalled for you to keep it nice looking.


    UPDATE: New leaked photos show what appear to be a tempered glass screen protector on the S8. There is no visible halo effect, which is practically impossible to avoid with curved glass. Will this be included with the S8? Or will the S8 be able to have glass screen protectors easily installed?

    As I said in a previous post I was hoping the smaller S8 would be a flat screen similar dimensions to LG G6 And have the S8+ a curved display

    The curved display does make it look sleeker but I feel like it's more vulnerable to nicks and scratches

    The screen protector shown looks like a Zizo brand which doesn't actually adhear to the screen, but only on the bezels.

    Samsung curved displays are very popular. That's really the only explanation they need. Once they stop selling, they'll move on to something else.

    It's not for function, it's for form. People buy the edge version of the S7 more and the Note 7 was selling well before it got recalled so overall, people like the edge. They're going to go with the design that sells the most. If you want flat, there's always The G6.

    Not liking the new UI. I liked the direction TouchWiz was going to Grace UI in the Note 7. Personal preference but to me it's a step backwards.

    Too tall and narrow for me. I really don't like the screen ratio. I remember when I first got an iPhone 5 and it felt like I was peering out of a letterbox. That's when I moved to Android. Then there's the price!! I currently have a Samsung GS7 and have just pre-ordered a Huawei P10. Really looking forward to taking some B&W pics with the dedicated monochrome sensor.

    This time it's actually BLACK! For the longest time, it has always been a blueish black color, with some type of weird texture design. I really like that they made it true black, always looked better that way (black iPhones looked nice, though I dislike using iPhones). It also hides the sensors very well, in fact you can't see it at all! Kinda looks like the black iPhone 7 (ironically these photos were taken from an iPhone). Hope they keep it this way from now on. Just wish they came out with a flat screen version of the S8.

    I always preferred black phones but I agree in this case it looks even better

    I love the black, but it's going to be a fingerprint magnet. A case will be necessary.

    You dont want a taller phone. But you want a bigger battery for longer battery life.
    Exactly how would you think that is possible ?

    Um that's kinda simple. A thicker phone would obviously have space for a bigger battery. That's what people on tech blogs and forums say a lot. Just make the phone thicker. You don't ever hear, make the phone taller so I can get a bigger battery lol.

    Yeah, but cardboard was acting like taller phones is how you make batteries bigger. Until now, phones haven't been made taller just to fit a bigger battery. That really made no sense.

    Also, you hear a lot of people on the forums and such saying add a mm and get a bigger battery in the phone. Yeah if you make it too thick people will complain, but adding a mm probably wouldn't cause an uproar. What will probably happen is this year will not have the greatest battery life and then next year they'll make the battery bigger. That's what they did with the S6 and S7.

    Nobody knows what the S8 will be like.. The phone hasn't been released.
    But look at the size of the S7 last year. How big the battery was.
    Then look at the S7E and the note 7.
    And how much bigger the battery was.
    I liked the note 7.
    Would of been better if it had a flat screen oh.

    S6 dimensions 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm
    S7 dimensions 142.4 X 69.6 X 7.9 mm
    S7 edge dimensions 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm
    S7 active dimensions 148.8 x 75.0 x 9.9 mm

    Battery in the S6 was 2550mah, the one in the S7 was 3000mah, S7 edge 3600mah, S7 active 4000mah. And yes the S7 edge was taller and had a bigger battery but the device was bigger because of the screen. S7 active has the biggest battery of them all and look at how thick it is. They didn't say hey let's make the device taller for a bigger battery. And you're right, no one knows what the battery life will be like, but I doubt it will be spectacular and it definitely won't be better than if it had say a 4000 mah battery. I mean I think it be comparable to the S7, but I don't think it'll be way better. I'll be buying it anyway, but I just have a feeling next year they'll have battery life as their reason to upgrade. I loved my S6 edge but couldn't wait to upgrade because the battery life sucked.

    How many St7 actives did they sell compared to the S7 and S7E ?

    I remember now my audiologists said she got a S7 active and was complaining about the battery life.



    You need to complain to Samsung like I did.
    The people making the phone don't care evidently.

    Just like me complaining about not being able to remove apps like Samsung Pay.
    And I don't like the curved screen

    Samsung don't care.

    Bet the battery was smaller in the edge cause of the curved screen.
    The note 7 had the stylUS, so space for a larger battery was lost there.
