    I left for the S8 plus and I tell you it is one thing I don't regret. A lot of times going up one model year isn't much of an update and the spec sheet might make it appear that way, but it's a huge step forward as far as performance and battery.

    I enjoyed the S7 edge, but it's a dinosaur compared to the S8 series.

    I am fine with the S7E. I will wait until it dies.

    I am waiting for the iPhone 8 and Pixel 2. The S7 Edge will be my last Samsung phone. It's all about timely updates.

    I agree and disagree with timely updates. There's a lot of times the update screws the phone up, so sometimes I would like no update. BlackBerry did updates right, you could revert back to the original OS if a update screwed things up for you, Apple and Android should allow the same IMO. At least Apple updates all and not just what a manufacture or carrier decides to update.

    Not updating because I'm perfectly happy with the S7E. Performance is excellent and I have never run out of battery.

    I never said the S7 was bad. I was saying that the S8 is a huge update. If you like the S7, you will be amazed with the S8.

    I should have said that I'm happy with the 7 and that I haven't seen anything the 8 has over the 7 that I am willing to pay for at this time. The 8 is an upgrade but not one I'm interested in parting with $ for (which is not to say it's not worth it in general). It is good news to hear that it is a distinct improvement as opposed to a small incremental upgrade.

    There's nothing wrong with waiting if your happy. It should only be nothing but better by waiting.

    I just wanted to clarify to everyone that I don't think the S7 edge is a bad phone, I was trying to say that normally updating to the next model doesn't give you a big change, but going to the S8 is a noticable improvement for a change.

    I had the S7 Edge. Laged very noticeably. I have now been using S8 Plus for 2 months, and I am blown away by the performance compared to S7 Edge. It is the smoothest Samsung phone yet.

    I don't regret my decision one bit, in the contrary, glad I made the jump.

    I can give you 700 reasons.
    Besides there is nothing that looks interesting at all, not even the S8. I'm tired of spending a lot of money on the next best thing hoping that it will actually give me what I want. But it never happens. The note 8 might do it but it's not looking good. Samsung pay and wireless charging are not good enough anymore.

    I just upgraded in March to the S7 edge and I'm happy with my phone. a lot of people also can't afford or don't want to spend money on phones every 6-12 months.

    1. People don't want to throw away money. If the phone works fine, why spend?
    2. I already have the phone limited to 70% performance via battery saver, and does everythinh I need perfectly. I don't need the extra oomph.
    3. The only thing that is currently interesting me in the S8 is Samsung finally moving back to no front buttons (their first Galaxy Tabs had no buttons).
    4. It's July already. The Note 8 is coming up.
    5. I can get an S9 next year for no extra cost (or massive discount), or an S8 + extra freebies like a tablet (I once got a choice of a Note 3 vs Note 2 + Tab 4 some years back) on my part thanks to my phone contract's 2 year renewal cycle. The S7 is performing well enough for me to wait it out for the good deals.

    It's about being practical sometimes. Heck I'm driving a 24year old car because it works, and has better AC than a new Vios (It's a Nissan Sentra).

    I bought a S8+ two weeks ago but I am still using my S7 Edge as my daily phone.

    There isn't a whole lot of difference between the two phones other then size and a few software differences.

    Don't even go there. S7E 5.5". S8+ 6.2". There's your dinosaur. S8+ is the tyrannasaurous rex of phones. Way too big, unless you use the two-handed grip, like a baseball bat. I picked one up at Best Buy, just to see what it felt like in my hand, and i immediately dropped it. Lucky for me, it was tied to a security cord. S8+, no thank you.

    Agreed. As a mobile device, if you have to use it with two hands what's the point. And I don't care how much they try to sell it, one handed modes all suck.

    Plan on using my s7 edge for another year then will have a good look at mid - high range Chinese makes like honor or xiaomi. I buy my phones sim free but cant justify the price of the s8 and probably future samsungs phones at £700-£800.

    I keep saying the FPS embedded in front screen is going to slow the unlock process. Everyone is letting the...oh it's neat blind them. I hope they put it on the note 8 and find out that it's a pain so they can drop it for the S9.

    Very happy with my S7 & S7 Edge, performance does me good with both devices being very stable and reliable.

    As to "why not upgrade to S8/S8 Plus?". For me tis the screens 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the long-n-skinny approach (like my phones with a bit more meat on their sides), and the location of the fingerprint sensor... Oh yeah, we want to move away from the curved display, looks pretty just not my thing we are finding.

    Plan on waiting anyhow until 2018 to see what unfolds with the phone manufactures.
