    I had one. Still too curved for me
    Dun really see distortion on Note 7, felt it's the sweet spot to me. If S8 screen is bigger and maintain Note 7's curve, the "distortion" will be even more insignificant.

    Why lose ANY screen space to distortion?

    I don't know, but what you call distortion, I call a neat rolling effect.

    They appear to be solving the buttons issue, I'm interested if they remove the SD card slot and have a 128 GB or 256 GB internal storage option. I'd also want a flat screen version. Preferably metal body instead of glass.

    I never have that issue. I find viewing of content beautiful on the Edge screen. Having said that, I think keeping a flat version is still a good idea and I'm not sure why they are moving away from it.

    I would love to have a flat version S8.

    My wife and I got our Note 4s back in October 2014 when they were released. The Note 4 has been great but mine is starting to act sluggish even after a factory reset and my wife's has been dropped one (or 20) too many times and randomly restarts now. We'll probably go for the S8 or S8 plus for sure since 2.5 years out of the Note 4s is acceptable and we don't really use the stylus so don't need to wait for the Note 8.

    Yeah will get it, need to see if it'll be good enough to keep using it until the next flagship from some other company comes out.

    As one who owned two Note 7s, had them recalled, and wound up with an S7 Edge, I had planned to get the new S8 Edge (or whatever the larger S8 is called). However, I am concerned about some of the rumors: fingerprint scanner moved to the rear, only 4GB of RAM, and a price of $960 US. I'll have to wait and see what's actually released and if Samsung gives a price break to those of us who had to return our Note 7s.

    I'm still debating between the S8 or the Pixel XL. I will end up getting the larger of the two S8's. I have to wait and see what the S8 ends up looking like for sure and final specs. Also will depend on if the Pixel XL 128gb is still backordered when I can upgrade in may.

    Went back to my iPhone 6S Plus after the whole Note 7 recall business. I'm too impatient to wait for the Note 8 so I may just jump on the S8 Plus or whatever it'll be called.

    Yep. Just saw an article earlier today supporting the rumors that the S8 edge will resemble the Note7 over the S7E. They're calling it a soft edge display. The edge of the Note7 was a lot better than the S7E.

    Yes i will, going to pre-order as soon as i can. I have the money for this thing (since returning my note 7) i am so tired of the old 5s i am using.

    My only question is who i will pre-order from Verizon or Samsung.

    I'm Jonesing for big boy stereo speakers. Looks like the best they can do will be like the Iphone 7 with the top speaker being a loud speaker and an earpiece speaker and the other speaker is the bottom firing one. I had the Iphone 7 and the earpiece speaker was nice and loud.

    Already had one disappointment from the fingerprint sensor (no on-screen sensor). Not else what else might differ from rumours.

    Originally I was going to wait until the S9 since I have gotten the odd numbered Galaxies due to that is when my upgrades happen. This year though, am considering switching to Verizon, so if that happens, will likely get the S8.

    For me, no RBG led notification light would be a deal breaker. Gave it up for a Moto Z Force Droid, and boy am i sorry. 5.8" would be ok, but i want that light. Anybody know if it's part of the S8?

    I will get the S8 Plus. the standard size Galaxy is too small for me. Even the S7 Edge is a bit too small for my liking even though I use a thick case such as Otterbox or Supcase always. I like big screens especially when texting and emailing. Now if this phone is over $900 I might just wait for the iPhone 8 Plus or Note 8. No way I'm shelling out more cash than for the Note 7 and have no Spen built in it. Might even look at the g6 too then.

    I wouldn't buy an iPhone at any price. I like the OnePlus 3T too.

    More then likely though playing with an LG V20 today it gives me a fall back.

    After getting shafted by the Note 7 I am still a little leery of things especially with their slow as molasses release of nougat. Really need to see the official spec released and go from there I guess.
