    I think there will be a home key, but no physical button. If the fingerprint sensor is imbedded into the screen, I'm sure it will do dual duty, just like the physical home button now does. It sounds more or less like a small camera under the glass. Typically, cameras aren't huge, so I could see the outside edges and out being used as the home key as well.
    I prefer capacitive buttons. Screen buttons take up real estate

    But then I would end up waiting 5 more months for Note 8 and so on ad infinitum

    The S8 has been officially announced now. Along with a few variants. I'd seriously look into the new Huewai phablet, that thing looks super slick.

    My HTC dropped and the screen cracked. It's still usable, but definitely needs replaced and the sooner the better. But I've always been a buyer of phones either on or soon after launch day. I'm most likely going to be buying muddiest Samsung since the Instinct and wondering if you guys think I should go with the s7 edge, or wait till the s8.
    To be honest, if you can wait, I would. Im very happy with my galaxy s7 edge. Its a great phone that has given me zero issues. But, from reading articles on what the S8 is supposed to have, definitely wait. Supposedly it'll have the Qualcomm 830 chip, 4k edge to edge screen, viv, and a whole lot more.

    I just bought the S7 Edge this week. Why not wait? It came down to how I use my phone. I use it for web and some light mobile games. The same games I've been playing for over a year. Sure the rumored specs may boost performance, but unless the battery doubled in size I don't think I would use the phone any different than my last. And if I always wanted to wait for the latest, I'd always be waiting. I needed a phone and chose this one. Happy as could be with my choice.

    All they (media websites) did was to announce a bunch of rumored specs.

    It would be nice if they had some sort of program for those of us forced out of our much loved N7's so that I'm not tempted into something like a Droid Turbo3

    Ah, I know. I want to wait, but I'm not sure I have the patience to hold out until May, for example. Wish we had a solid release date.

    You would don't know when s8 come out, I think it would be six months later thing, Man!!! you intend using the cracked phone for 6 months?
    S7 edge is a good phone, one of the best android phone.

    Bottom line, if you have the resources to buy a phone outright or are on a lease program that allows multiple upgrades a year, get the S7E. If you don't and your current phone still works, hold out for the S8. Samsung needs to up the ante this year due to the 10th anniversary iPhone coming out. Solid release dates probably won't be known until they're in production. I'm sure designs are still being decided upon and multiple safety tests will be done to ensure a successful release this time around.

    I agree most specs are rumors, but after that note 7 disaster, samsung has to really knock it out of the park.

    Yes and theybsaid N7 would have 4000 mAh battery. I've learned my lesson. I don't believe a word they say.

    The S8 was well into design before N7 went bad. I doubt they will change what they already had planned.

    I have an unlimited plan with verizon so I can't upgrade through them, but I like to try new phones. I usually wait 3-4 months after a phone is released before I start looking for one. I can usually get one for at least half of the msrp. I have been really good lately and I've kept my LG G3 for a long time (I tried a galaxy s5 for a week but went back to the lg g3, no difference in performance for what I used it for) The S7 Edge has (from what I've seen) nothing but great reviews and great specs. While I just got my s7 edge, I already like it.

    If the galaxy s8 is that much better than the s7 I will likely get it in late summer/fall. But, it seems to me that the technological advances from one year to the next aren't as big as what I remember growing up. The new phone will be faster and have more memory and new features, but how much more can they improve on the s7 edge? I know this has been said before though, so like you guys I will wait and see what samsung has up their sleeve.

    Which review said they blow up? My only point is the reviews were universally spectacular. You can't trust reviews. Trust USER comments after about a month

    That's what I meant, that I will give it time just to make sure there are no major problems with the device.

    Do what I did, buy a used S7/S7Edge to get you through til the S8 is out and thoroughly reviewed. You'll have an amazing phone to get you through in case you decide the S8 isn't for you and if you do want to upgrade you can either sell the S7 or take advantage of the trade in deals which seem to be better for a year old flagship over older phones.

    I have a Note 3 (returned N7 of course). Note 3 works pretty well but I do like the GS7. The thing is I will be giving up ir blaster which I do use and HDMI connection which I also use for Netflix. With a bluetooth mouse and keyboard my Note 3 allows me to watch things I don't get on tv. I don't have wifi.I do have qi charging back on my Note 3 and a brand new battery directly from Sammy.

    Anyway the GS7E is nice looking and has a better camera. Edge functions do not interest me. Are there any other new features I will love to help me get over curved edges, smaller screen, no ir, and no HDMI? I want to buy it but I feel like I'm giving up a lot just to get a better camera. Help me out here! LOL

    No need to get the edge version if you don't care about edge functions. If you will miss the IR blaster, that is something the honor 8 does have.
