    I'll be sitting this one out. Still nervous after my S4 running out of updates and memory and updates, then the Note fiasco.

    The only one I'm remotely interested in is the s8plus but if it's not going to be any wider than the s7edge I don't think I'm going to go for it

    Yikes! That is what I worry about. I have the edge and don't like typing or texting on it because it's so narrow. IF the s8 plus is like that then I won't be impressed. I'd rather buy the G6 and have the flat screen then. I prefer the size of the V20. I can type so much better on that.

    Mods, any idea how long after Wednesday you'll actually get your hands on an S8? I think I'm finally over rumours/ leaks and want to hear about the real thing in action :P

    Does anyone know if the back cover will be made with the same glass as the S7 ? My GS7's back has been completely destroyed ever since its first drop from a few inches.. Something a bit more resistant would be appreciated !

    I don't know if I'm going for it if the 8Plus isn't bigger than the 7edge. I prefer larger screen phones but larger that makes sense, not just "longer".

    When looking at the side-by-side photos the S8+ looks bigger but I think its just taller, the width seems to be the same or maybe even slightly more narrow than the S7 Edge... I will still buy the S8+ because I had to put a case on my S6 and S7 just to stop myself from hitting the sides of the screen with my hand so holding it should feel the same.

    I doubt I will notice that it's slightly more narrow plus if the S8 screen is more like the Note 7 (more relaxed curve that felt a lot better than the S7 Edge curve) then I'II be more than happy. Plus the screen being slightly more narrow than the S7 Edge won't bother me too much since the overall phone will be an improvement.

    That relaxed curve was perfect. The 7edge it's too much and to me feels distorted. If the 7edge were flat it would be great.

    Well, for the first Samsung phones that goes bezelless, it's worth waiting. But for the display ratio is kinda odd, isn't it?

    I am still running a Note 4 and wanted to buy the Note 7, but now glad I waited a little bit! I love the look of the S8 but need to actually hold it in my hand before I commit. I do not know if I will wait for the next Note, although I use the S pen every day. I also hope the back is flat enough to set on the desk and be stable; and it needs to be something solid or it will end up in a case. At least our wait is almost over!

    Well LG beat Samsung on the display ratio front,didn't it. I mean, if Samsung is indeed launching the S8 in the 2:1 ratio or "18:9" and the huge torrent of leaks suggests that it would do so, then we have already seen that ratio in the G6 and it doesn't look bad especially with the software optimizations that LG has implemented..Hopefully Samsung will use the ratio in an innovative manner as well.

    As this is being livestreamed from New York, it will be at a convenient time here in Mumbai (8:30 pm). Apple events, on the other hand,start at 10 :30 pm and run till 12:30 pm, as they are conducted from the West coast...

    Nah I preordered the G6 to pass the time, lol. I got jump on demand so it's not really gonna cost me anything.

    Yes, indeed... I think the 18:9 will be the next trend for the couple of years. But notice that Samsung S8 is little bit different from LG G6, which has 18.5:9 ratio. So far no apps or games can't use the display whole fully. I can't wait for the review on AC about this phone, though.
