    FM radio? The SoC's on the S7's received an update to unlock FM radio on many versions, including major carriers.

    Does anyone know if the SD835 or Exynos would have an FM capability?
    The sd835 does (technically via the "WCN3990 companion chip", but since that seems to handle all of the radio interfaces I think we can assume it's there). Obviously it only works if the antenna input is connected to the headphone jack, but that seems to have been the case with previous models.

    I've not found any information about the Exynos and FM support, but I believe that the preceding generation of Exynos processors did not have it, so wouldn't expect this one to.

    Add a second question...why not putting a slightly bigger battery on the S8+??
    After the Note 7 fiasco they are playing it safe with battery technologies, so maybe thast why samsung sticked to the 3500mAh juicer. Being a LiPo battery versus a Li-Ion, i see the battery degradation being a little less noticeable.

    Is it really 6.2"? The curved corners mean it is 6" from a total display surface standpoint. Seems we are back in the old CRT days for speccing display sizes. I would rather have a wider display that was slightly taller than this. Most content is not optimized for the display size and will not be for the normal life of this device.

    I'm thinking about throwing my projector and 120" screen in the trash because it's just terrible that it's 1.78:1 and so many movies are in 2.35:1. It just doesn't fill the screen. I don't know what to do.

    Not the same thing. Much bigger display with projector and the only thing with black bars on sides is 4:3 content.

    But that awful wasted screen space on top and bottom on 2.35:1 content. I just hate preserving aspect ratio as the director intended.

    If it's a 18.5:9 ratio, what were they expecting? It goes without saying.

    Most of us do jot know the ratios of the various formats. We prefer part of scene is cut out to FILL screen rather than part of screen left black to show entire screen. On a tv you can choose.

    What is HD TV ratio? Everything Netflix shows would be standard HD ratio right?

    Most tv/ Netflix content is 1.78:1 (16x9) or 1.85:1. With overscan, 1.85 usually fills a 16x9 screen.

    Netflix does have content filmed in 2:1.

    But when I watch Netflix on tv it always fills my tv screen. Must be a tv setting. I never noticed black bars on my V20 nor Note 3 though

    House of Cards and Stranger Things are filmed in 2:1.

    That is so but VZW does not allow Netflix to broadcast in full HD to Note 3 and not in 4k to V20. Perhaps lower resolution alters ratio?

    I haven't really looked into it but maybe Netflix isn't actually pushing the content in 2:1, maybe they crop to 1.85:1. Although not new, 2:1 isn't a widely accepted format but maybe it will gain some traction so there can a standard aspect ratio going forward. There really are to many.

    I would rather not utilize some of my screen, whether it's my projector or my 50" 4k tv or my phone, and watch the show or movie in the aspect ratio the director intended. There's a reason they filmed in that ratio.

    I understand. I'm not a purist. I'd watch colorized Citizen Kane

    Thanks. I didn't remember the Exynos S7's were not involved, so to speak. So it's a possibility at least.

    Here in the UK I'm still not sure which version is coming. Maybe I'm not looking properly
    It will almost certainly be Exynos in the UK. Their usual pattern is Snapdragon in North America, Exynos everywhere else.

    I've heard they use Snapdragon in the US because of CDMA - otherwise they'd use their own Exynos chipset. I may have got that wrong though.

    Does this have a separate DAC or just the Snapdragon one?
