    I heard so much complaining about the ugly home button when the S7 was announced. Now everyone wants it to stay. lol

    People are never happy.

    I wanted the physical home button to be removed for the longest time

    From the looks of the case it looks like the edge won't be as pronounced as the s7 edge. Man i really hope this looks a lot like the note 7.

    If the bigger of the two S8 models is no wider than the 7 Edge I don't think I'm going to get it

    Why wider? My perfect phone would do the note 7. I was just about to buy it when it got recalled. The size and look were perfect. I've never liked the s7 edge look at all

    Yea, I hope the S8 is wider! Both those cases look pretty narrow. Yikes! I'd have to pass and go for the G6 if it has AMOLED then possibly. I want a big screen phone but don't want it super skinny like the S7 edge. The S7 edge is too skinny for me.

    I'd probably go V20 and have a regular S7 just for the Samsung pay

    Well then you'll probably want the S8 Plus since that seems to be closer to iPhone Plus size while the regular S8 is supposedly a tad narrower than the S7 Edge. I personally prefer not to get a phone wider than the S7 Edge. If the S8 at release sound good I'll probably get an S8, otherwise I'm really warming up to the G6 and want to hear the final specs.

    Weening myself off the iPhone 6 and playing with a S6 in the for last couple of months, I'm really hating the battery life and the lag on the S6 and really appreciating more the smoothness of the iPhone 6 and the crazy good battery life on it having 30% less battery than most androids. I hope the new phones will be able to match the battery performance of the iphone as well as smoothness... if not I am also really interested too in the upcoming iPhone 8... stainless frame (iphone 4 style), home embedded into screen, etc... and may get one too while I justify keeping an Android learning development.

    So will the S8 plus have the Spen like some speculations are?

    No. But it will come with a touch sensitive display, and a workable stylist sold separately.

    A 3500 MAH battery isnt enough, at the very least 4000 mah. Dont bother making faster phones, better specs and better screens if your battery isnt up to scratch.

    That's the other thing. It is most likely to be the fingerprint scanner, though. What else would it be?

    3500 mah is enough, unless you're a power user

    Depends on the screen and how optimized the OS/software is.

    I agree. Display and efficiency of how the device runs. Their push to integrate a ton of services into Android is their Achilles heel.

    3600 is barely enough for the S7 edge and they're making the screen bigger. I don't think 3500 will be enough. I feel like battery life should be getting better.

    The early rumor suggested a display with built-in fingerprint scanner but now it seems Samsung move the scanner on the back. I still hope the home button will be embeded on the display, so we have a bigger screen in smaller body. Expect a screen to body ratio of 85%

    Not necessarily. The Note 7 had better battery life than the S7 Edge. It comes down to the new processor and its efficiency

    That wasn't necessarily my experience with the Note 7. Yeah I got slightly better battery life but I had the screen resolution decreased. I'm on the nougat beta now and after decreasing the resolution on my S7 edge, it has better battery life than my Note 7 did. There were threads where it seemed like half of the people thought the Note had better life and the other thought it was the S7e. I just don't think Samsung will optimize the snapdragon enough. If it was the exynos then I would agree that maybe 3500 would be enough.

    Just to put this in perspective, no battery size is enough. You do what you can with what you get.

    If battery life is your biggest concern, buy a Mate 9 with that 4000 mah battery.

    Samsung is playing it safe after the Note disaster, and who could blame them?
