    I've heard they use Snapdragon in the US because of CDMA - otherwise they'd use their own Exynos chipset. I may have got that wrong though.

    It will almost certainly be Exynos in the UK. Their usual pattern is Snapdragon in North America, Exynos everywhere else.
    Traditionally we always had the Snapdragon variant along with the US, but that changed with the S7, and S6 afaik, so who knows.
    My last Samsung was a Note 3.

    Does this have a separate DAC or just the Snapdragon one?

    You are right that it's not simple! The S7 was Exynos internationally, Snapdragon in the USA. The S6 was Exynos everywhere because Samsung didn't take the sd810. S4 and S5 were mostly Snapdragon apart from the non-LTE versions - that was the thing I'd forgotten, that it was LTE that drove the SoC choices with those models.

    GSMArena claim it's Exynos for EMEA, but whether that's based on hard info or guesswork I can't say.

    Most people are speculating that there will be a separate DAC with the Exynos, while the Snapdragon will use the one built into the SoC, but again how much is hard fact and how much is extrapolation from previous generations is hard to determine. Since poor headphone audio is a deal-breaker for me I'm hoping that both predictions (Exynos in UK and better DAC with that model) are true.

    Hey People
    I came to know that Samsung is going to sell S8+ with 6Gb ram and 128Gb internal Storage in China and south Korea. Is that true?

    S8+: is there a way to find out if this phone has a MicroSD card slot that uses UHS-I or UHS-II "bus"? I can't seem to find this information anywhere.


    UHS-I = single row of contacts (slower max speed); UHS-II = two rows of contacts (faster max speed)


    Kindly please note that this is NOT the UHS3 (the number 3 inside a letter U). this UHS-I or UHS-II has to do with the "bus" that is reading the micro sd card and also the micro sd card itself: the UHS-I cards have only one row of contacts, while the UHS-II cards have two rows for much higher read/write speeds.


    No where was i able to find this information!


    Thanks in advance.
    The UHS-II cards are very expensive, most of them with 128GB are going for over $200 on Amazon -

    SanDisk - (https://www.amazon.com/128GB-Extreme...cUvbUpU5744294)

    Delkin - (https://www.amazon.com/Delkin-microS...cUvbUpU5744294)


    But I found one that was less than $130 (https://www.amazon.com/Lexar-Profess...cUvbUpU5744294)

    I think I will wait until the price drops a good amount because I need a 256GB memory card and I still have the free 256GB memory card from Samsung with my Note 7 purchase so I'm not in a rush. Plus I don't even know if getting a UHS-II memory card would even matter on a cellphone at the moment...

    The S8 variants look good , I probably would not have minded a 6 GB of ram option though .
    It would have been better hands downs! I will still be happy with my S8+ but I rather have more RAM then I need instead of not enough RAM down the road and no way to increase it.

    Nice to see that the S8 outperforms the still-hard-to-get-in-stock Pixel XL in speed and memory usage. Not sure if the reviewer is using the S8 with the Exynos or Snapdragon CPU, though.



    Also, this article does confirm that the Snapdragon 835-version of the S8 is barely beaten by the Exynos 8895-version of the S8.

    There's a reason they filmed in that ratio.
    Yeah, like that's the equipment the studio gave them, that's the film that was cheaper, etc etc.

    Just kidding, I agree with you that for movies that were made as an art form, (as opposed to everyday entertainment movies) I want the full experience that the director intended.

    as great as these specs are the initial performance leave a lot to be desired when compared to real world usage over time

    It's gonna take time for everyone to optimize their apps to the new aspect ratio. But for what's supported now, it looks pretty good to me.

    I haven't really looked into it but maybe Netflix isn't actually pushing the content in 2:1, maybe they crop to 1.85:1. Although not new, 2:1 isn't a widely accepted format but maybe it will gain some traction so there can a standard aspect ratio going forward. There really are to many.
    G6 is 18:9 and now the S8/S8+ is 18.5:9. There has been speculation that Apple may also move to 18:9. I think this is where it is headed and if Apple does it, then it's only a matter of time since that's how the market moves. But anyway, that's 2 big flagships that have moved to 18:9 and after reading up on this, I think it was a good move by Samsung to go with the trend for the future, but also to push that ratio forward.

    1 Question. I saw in one spot that they list support for 24/384 and DSD 56 and 128. Is this for all variants, only US version, or only rest of world version? Does the stock music app need to be used? Is poweramp, Onky HF Player, or other app supported?

    Why do manufacturers insist on not caring about battery life?
    Cheers
    It's a compromise between size and battery life. As someone else said maybe they're playing it safe after the Note 7. Either way I think 300mAh will be enough.

    It just needs to last me all day with moderate use. I always charge them over night. All day for me is 4:30 am till about 9 pm

    5.8" is gonna be HUGE for me if I get it - I've done 5.5" before but I feel that extra 0.3" might be too much! But that's why you gotta go to the store and see how it fares in the hand.

    I have the s7 Edge and the regular 8 is a little smaller. The 8 Plus is the one I'm going with on Friday. Narrower and easy to hold. Bigger screen without being wider works for me. And I won't miss the hard home button on the Edge. I do wish they had put an IR blaster back in. A girl can dream.

    I'm with you - I will definitely not miss the home button. What colour are you going to get?!

    S7 and S7 Edge had 256QAM, 4x4 MIMO, and Carrier Aggregation activated with a software update for T-Mobile users, but there's been no mention of it in the S8 and S8 Plus. Are we to assume it's also got it and enabled by default?
