    Now that everything is official (no surprise, they're similar to the leaks), does the Galaxy S8 impress you to the point where it justifies the price?

    Let us know below and why!

    No, because it will cost 830 euros.

    Considering it more than I was before. Definitely impressed with the launch so far.

    would like to hold one before ordering. Not sure whether to go with the S8 for a smaller and easier tohold device, or S8+ for the added screen real estate. Have a V20 now and i can't stand the feeling in the hand, which has me leaning towards the smaller S8.

    I have to see and play with one in person to see if it piques my interest.

    I will be waiting for the Note 8, but this is a good preview of what's to come. Exciting times!

    If prices from another post is correct then not bad... but I want to hear full reviews to find out how that 3000 mah battery works out. iPhone 7+ might get the job done with only 2900 mah... but is the SD835 really that more efficient to compete with that?

    Verizon - $720 for the S8 and $840 for the S8+
    At&t and T-Mobile - $750 for the S8 and $850 for the S8+

    Looks nice but it's hard to beat my Pixel. Will try it at stores when it comes out before I decide.

    It doesn't scream to me to go buy... it looks like a good foundation for whats to come from Note 8...

    get rid of that awefully placed FPS and put dual cameras and at the s-pen silo and then we're talking... and make it in the S8 size. I'm not feeling the Plus size lol.

    As a GS6/GS7 Edge owner I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. The design is a nice evolution and a larger screen in a smaller package is a win - though it remains to be seen if they did anything to negate the frustrating false taps the edge display generates. The 7 borders on unusable without a case on it. I would have switched to a non-edge display if they offered it.

    More important, the camera is the same - and while low light pictures were improved over the GS6, the 16mp 16:9 format of the GS6 was absolutely better for outdoors/good light. I have both and its not even close. The battery is 600ma SMALLER so even if they improved efficiency alot the battery life will not be materially better and could be worse. A compelling phone perhaps if I didn't already have a GS7E.

    Since the specs are pretty much identical between the two models, I would opt for the non+ model just so I can still attempt to use the phone single-handedly.

    I have to say that I am super interested in getting this phone! Have been using an iPhone 6s for a year as an experiment, but I think I'm ready to jump.

    I was not planning to buy it until I saw Casey Niestat's video. I think the incentives like the Gear VR and 256GB SD card may make the price sting less. I'm preordering it tonight from Best Buy.

    I love the specs but am concerned about the fingerprint sensor and edge to edge screen. Even though it looks amazing, I know I would have a lot of accidental touches. Definitely want to get my hands on it first

    Not enough new/better features to justify moving away from the physical home button that i'm a fan of. Will be keeping my S7E

    I really want the S8. I had the Note 7 and had to go with the S7 edge, therefore I am on a 2 year contract. Wish Verizon could let me upgrade as the faulty note 7 was no fault of mine.

    I think I am going to pre-order the samsung S8+. I had the note 7 and was forced to get a different phone and ended up with the LG V20. It was a great phone but just not up to the level of Samsung's in my opinion.
    Of course it looks like Verizon has the lamest pre-order incentives. Does anyone know if they will do anything for previous note 7 users?
    Also it says you can trade in your phone how does one go about doing that with a preorder? I am still under the payment plan so I need to pay off the lg v20. I am either going to pay what I owe on it and then sell it or maybe trade it in depending on what they will give me. The issue is I want to preorder and can't turn in the phone and be without a phone for a month.

    I have always had the odd numbered Galaxy phones but due to me probably switching carriers this year, will move over to the even numbered Galaxy series. Won't know if it will be the regular S8 or the S8+ until I have the chance to handle both and make my decision based on feel.

    V20 seems bulky to me. Even the S8+ is slightly smaller with a larger screen. Really trying to decide if i want the 8+ or standard. Find the V20 difficult to use with one hand and fear the same may be possible with the 8+...
