    Just saw a YouTube and the guy had a speed test. In many, but not all, the S8 was faster. Now what exactly is faster? It might have been .003 seconds faster to open!!! I am not impressed with the S8. I really, really like my G6. Hope they sell a bunch.

    When it comes to applications and browsers launching hundreths or thousandths of a second faster, there's no "real world" argument. I trust that manufacturers are making sure these devices are running as fast as possible without having adverse effects.

    That being said. I never cared about who's browser launched the fastest or who holds the highest benchmarks. What I care about is real world use. Within the return period of owning a device, I'll run it through my own tests and websites to see if I like the performance.

    True that, i am moving to G6 from S6. S8 its just not interesting, nothing special. Boring Samsung. And 835 and 821 in normal day use we won't see any difference.

    I have seen some of those and they do look like the S8 is a split-second faster but that's to be expected with the faster processor. I would be more concerned with the speeds three to six months from now. Every Samsung I have owned, even the Note 7, slowed down as I added apps. It was a constant effort to maintain the same fluidity as when right out of the box.

    To be honest let's not pretend LG phones hold up any good. They are going to lag as well down the line.

    I only have one phone and its a G6. Will i know that its slower or faster than any other phone? No. Its not like im carrying an S8 and a G6 and use it at the same time. My G6 is flawless so far and smooth, The only thing i will replace my G6 is the Note 8. I love the Note series.

    I have yet to see any lag on the G5 and the V20.

    Everyone has different definition of lag.. Heck my G6 lags here and there once in a while.

    I've never had an LG. This is my first so I would not know. I've had a few HTC phones, Sony phones, and iPhones but mostly Samsung phones. The Samsung phones were the ones that I had to stay on top of to avoid outright sluggishness. I never did mind though because I'm a tinkerer but they were quite clearly more prone to it than others.

    Like I said.... No lag. The camera is the only thing that's not that snappy.

    Hey now..... Just wait till the V30 comes out with the 835 chip, 4000 battery, 4K screen and the Octo DAC. We will see how much you like your G6 then... Mr Jump on Demand!

    Hahaha.. I will probably end up jumping to the V30.. But I will say this, water resistance has already been good to me.. Oddly though, I never needed it before.. I don't need it now, but it was here at the right moment.

    If the rumored specs for the V30 are anywhere close to being true then it would be a crime not to jump to it if you can. I just hope they can shrink down the bezel because the V20 is a brick.

    You lost me.... The bezels are small on the V20.

    More height wise. I think overall the top and bottom could be a lot more refined. The leaked supposed faceplate of the V30 looks like it addresses it well. IMO since 2:1 ratios are starting to take off it would be cool to see the 2nd screen be more "one" with the main screen.

    This is what I've been saying with Specs, Performance and Camera. When you're comparing FLAGSHIP devices the difference will be barely noticeable.

    I think it's easy to be wowed by the aesthics of a phone like the S8 but after a while the way the phone feels in the hand and how easy it is to do simple tasks on it will matter most in the long run. I've felt like comparing two flagship side by side is stupid. How fast one phone is compared to another flagship is pointless. As well as showing how one screen might get a little bit brighter or is more saturated or sharper. In the end it comes down to which one is more comfortable and easy to use. I kind of think this applies to things on a phone like which keyboard you use. Some look cool but auto correct sucks or are slower than others. I'm a function and form kind of person. Even if something looks sweet but sacrifices functionality or ease of use, I'm not going to use it.
