    I considered it, but hearing about the 4k screen the Note will have and being big on VR, I'll wait for the Note. That plus everything else they will pack into the Note will make it too good to pass up for me. Seeing the supposed leaked pics that show the S8 might look just like the Edge 7, think I'll pass.

    I've read the Edge 7 ended up selling better than the S7. From the recent pics going around of the S8, it looks like the Edge 7's twin. I wasn't a big fan of the Edge 7, screen had too much curve, the wrap around text and fish bowl effect with some content annoyed me. Hopefully they tweak the S8 just enough so those issues will be non favtors.
    I was considering the S8 depending on the specs. But just like you said after hearing the supposed specs of the Note I am probably going to wait for that as I do miss my Note 5. It will also give me the chance to see what they do with the second generation Pixel.

    Yup I'm thinking of just waiting for the N8 - will be interesting to see the Pixel v2.

    If the 6.2 inch screen rumor is true I'm all in. I'm still using a Note 4, love the screen size and can't see myself going smaller.

    I agree on seeing the Pixel V2 as I do love the idea of instant updates and the smooth experience. However I am also a sucker for technology and having the latest and greatest and when I am able to upgrade in May if the S8 looks appealing enough I may end up pulling the trigger. It's always hard for me to wait if there is something that is good enough that I want right then. I know there is always going to be something better but I have a hard time waiting. haha.

    No...The S7 is doing great. There's nothing a next gen phone will have that'll make me purchase one. I can actually see holding on to the S7 for 2 or more years.

    Happens every year. Everyone is playing with their shiny new toy and posting screen shots and pictures, and I'm like, crap!

    Then I go play with one at T-Mobile and it blows me away, and I'm like, crap!

    And if this one has stereo speakers, 6+GB of RAM, 64-128GB of storage comes with a free Gear 3, I'm going to be like, crap!

    I would love to get the new S8 or S 8 Edge. I've been using the Galaxy J7 since I had to return my Note 7. The J7 is a sub-par mid range phone that is ok. I like the 5'5 size. I'm ready for the S8. My wife has the S7 and I'm jealous that she has a better phone than me for a change. I'm really wondering what kind of promotion they will do this time around. I already have 2 VR's and a 256gb card. This time they need to throw in a Gear S2 or S3 for a pre-order (T-Mobile). Any thoughts on a promotion this time around for pre-orders?

    Really thinking about it. Then again, if I want Samsung I want the Note series. But I don't think I want to wait that long. Lol

    I'm in the same boat. I had a Note 3, S5, and S6 edge. Note 3 was my favorite of that trio. I will consider the S8, but I really want the Note 8.

    I probably will. I have access to use my companies corporate account to use an upgrade one of our lines at subsidized pricing. So if they follow current pricing for the S7 and S7 Edge, $199 and $299 respectively, I'll probably get the S8 at $199.

    I'll come back to Samsung when they have a top of the line flat screen alternative. Why make a giant screen only to distort the edges?

    Because it sold nearly twice what the flat version did.

    If the S8 disappoints, and the feedback they get is that people want a flat version, you bet it will return.

    people will tire of the distortion but it could take years.

    As bezels shorten, I think a lot of future phones will sport slight curvature. The key will be to make them flush with the sides rather than sliding outward. The Note 7 did a much better job of that.
