    “Pre-orders of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the US are outpacing those of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with strong double digit growth,” reads the Samsung statement. “In addition, the majority of consumers have been selecting the Galaxy S8+.”

    According to Samsung, the most popular pre-order so far is the S8+ in Midnight Black.

    The galaxy S8 line looks incredible, has the very best up to date specs, a gorgeous screen, and a whole lot more. So, why am I turned off of ordering one? Well, I'm one of the millions of audiophiles that need a hifi system incorporated into their phone. With high resolution audio coming down the pike at a rapid pace, manufacturers owe it to us to be able to listen to our music in the very best way. There are a few companies that have taken this into consideration and have done a great job. Unfortunately, samsung isn't one of them. LG put hifi dacs into their V10, but that did not impress. The V20 had a much better dac and sounds great. It's to bad that they omitted this dac on their US version of the G6. That's a deal killer. So what am I listening to? Well after doing hours of online research, and auditioning a few hifi phones, the most impressive is the ZTE axon 7. It has the hifi dacs but ZTE also added Dolby Atmos which really knocks the sound out of the park, especially when watching movies. But that's not all. This device is a top tier phone in almost every respect. Build quality, a gorgeous superamoled screen, 64gb on board with sd expansion and its fast as hell. Even faster than my S7 edge. So, come on Samsung, don't forget the audiophile next time around. Now I can't wait for the ZTE axon 8.

    Everyone has their preferences. Mine are the screen and camera.
    I agree that Samsung needs to step up in this department as well. I'm sure they're probably going with the masses and decided against it, whether it be cost or not value added to most consumers.

    I'm passing on the pre-order only because T-Mobile isn't giving enough incentive to upgrade. That ridiculous down payment makes no sense, and goes against the whole reason for having jump on demand.

    Right there with you, hence why I bought mine via Samsung.com and will sell my old phone privately.

    a wireless charger from Amazon

    Also this curved glass screen protector should arrive before the S8+

    and a free amplifier speaker dock from Samsung for my pre-ordered 8+. Meanwhile here is a nice read while we wait

    Sprint has to make back the money for the Can you Hear Me Now? dude Sprint touts their reliability of service being within 1% of Verizon. That is not the problem. The spotty coverage is.

    You're not the only one. As I keep saying The $100 I save will go towards the Note 8.

    Looks like all of the choices in the poll are in a dead heat. The S8+ for me was a must, getting old and need a big screen

    I pre-ordered a Black S8 from Samsung as I liked the "package" deal with the headphones, VR, etc. I'll sell my Axon 7 when it arrives. Seems like a nice phone. I'm fairly excited.

    Samsung just notified me that my phone and VR package has shipped, due to arrive Thursday 4/20/17 by FedEx. One day early suits me just fine!
