    Are you going to get the Samsung Galaxy S8 when it arrives?

    Depends if.....

    1. I can afford it
    2. SD card slot
    3. Flat screen.....no curved edges

    .....then yes!

    Probably... my wife is still on the original T-Mobile JUMP program, and her count resets shortly after the launch.

    I only have two criteria it has to meet.

    1) Micro SD. Card slot.
    2) doesn't blow up

    I've been waiting all year for it, refusing lesser, overhyped fall flagships. Unless they totally screw it up or HTC trumps them, I'll likely finally use my next jump for it.

    I have a bad habit of flipping phones way too often so knowing me I'll seriously consider getting the S8.

    I've only have had my V20 about a month or so and honestly it's been a wonderful experience but bad habits are difficult to break ahem ahem????

    Im probably going to buy the unlocked v20 and wait until the Note 8 comes out. The s7 edge is great but the edges are too extreme and it's slightly smaller than I like.

    If the rumors are correct, No. Want the 3.5 jack and sd slot. Not concerned for no 4K display, since going to a non pentile pixel array design should mean very good VR image quality with 1440p. 4K chokes on a computer with VR, yet alone a small footprint phone. 10nm is still not enough to keep heat down.

    Anyhoo, IF the S8 has the 3.5 jack and sd slot- probably would get it.

    WHY would you get rid of the SD slot again? Cost reasons? It makes no sense to get rid of it. How does it make the phone better?

    I very likely will stick with the V20 until the Note 8 comes out. I like the larger screen anyway and the flat screen as well. Unless the S8 edge has a larger screen than the S7 Edge I have no interest in it and if I do I certainly will wait at least 2 months before buying it to see if it turns out to be a dud or not. I'm not going through another Note 7 nightmare again.

    If it looks like Note 7 (not S7E) externally, no physical home button and at least 5.5 screen, most likely I will get it.

    I have an s7 edge now but if the 8 has curved glass like I've read it's going to. BTW there is rumor for a two size screen choice. 5.7" and 6.2". I would opt for the 5.7 but will not stay with Samsung if the rumor of curved glass only models is true.

    I am going to wait and see what the phone actually looks like and decide from there. I am not eligible to upgrade until may so that will give me enough time to make sure it doesn't explode and also see if I want to upgrade to it from my S7 Edge or wait for the 2nd generation pixel to come out later in the year. I love the idea of the google pixel with immediate software updates, how smooth it works, and the amazing camera. I just wouldn't want to get the current pixel in may when a new one would be out a few months later most likely. But at the same time I actually do like the edge display on the samsung. So it's really going to be a wait and see kind of thing for me.

    One thing that could sway me to the S8 is if they decide to do a promo where if you buy the phone you can get a Gear S3 for $100 or something because then I can also upgrade my gear S2 classic.

    Have really liked the S series since they started, in my case have gone the every other model and have been on the odd numbers, so while the S8 will probably be a great device, I will end up waiting until the S9 in 2018.

    Could be. Depends on which OEM produces the best all-around Nexus 6 replacement. Samsung can certainly top the N6 display and camera without half trying; the speakers and software experience could be the only sticking points, especially if they're hyperkeen on minimizing front bezels. Still, I'm liking the recent spate of rumor mongering about 2017 phones sporting > 5.7" displays.

    I will not get one for myself, but I will get one for my wife to replace her S7 edge. She is on the Sprint Galaxy forever plan. I'll keep my V20 until the next Note arrives.

    Same here, and the odd numbers have been much better phones than the evens, IMO

    Probably not. I have been sitting on my S5 for a while and it is still trucking along. I'm skeptical about trying to play music and charge from the same USB port, so I might just go to an S7 after prices drop with the introduction of the S8.

    Planning to get it. But will probably wait a month or so after it launches to see if it becomes a ticking time bomb.... :-)

    I feel the same way about waiting but I know myself. Once pre-orders are available I'll be clicking that "submitt" button that first day haaaaa?!?!

    Can't wait!!

    Bottom line is I need to know more about s8 but with no miracast nor hdmi support no way. I would miss ir blaster too.

    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.
