    I've been pondering​ that same question. As of now, I don't see any substantial benefit for me to upgrade from my S7. So far, my Su has been working great with excellent battery life, no lagging, and great camera. I considered upgrading to the LG G6, but for the same reasons as the S8 I don't feel the need to upgrade now. Just my 2 cents...

    No increase in battery life, no improvement to the rear facing camera, bad placement of the fingerprint scanner, will I upgrade? hell no the S7 size is better (for me at least), it's the max size I would like for a phone in addition, this is not an upgrade, just like an S7 with minor changes and a huge price bump. Major fail

    All I can say is go try one out. By the time you leave the store, your mind will be made up one way or another.

    Not if you have an S7 Edge. Probably yes if you have an S7 because of the screen size. Probably the only good reason is bigger screen and slimmer form factor.

    I agree. My Edge is flawless and the battery is excellent. I'll hold out for a Note or Pixel II.

    I have an S7 and I'm going for the S8. Reason is it's 64gb and I like the face and iris recognition. Plus it's a lot slimmer in my little hands. The S7 was wide. Also it's a darned good looking phone!

    I have an S7 and I'm getting the 8. The curve makes it look better.

    I'm not sure I understand the comments about the large size when the S8 is actually a little smaller than the S7, which the S8+ is about half an inch taller than the S7e but about the same width. I have the S7e and memory is a big issue with me. 32GB doesn't do it so that alone is enough to make me want to move on. Also, I don't know what it is with my phone but my camera is so laggy it drives me nuts. I had the Note 7, and returned to my S7e. I will move to the S8+ and when the Note8 comes outs, maybe I'll move again.

    S8 is also much better to hold than the sharper edged S7 Edge.

    Are you kidding me?

    835 processor, 64gb of storage out of the box. 8mp front facing camera. More refined edge for better in hand feel. Absolutely insane, bezel less screen. Bixby.

    This phone is stacked!

    Only real downside for me is the battery.

    My only question mark about the S8 is battery life.

    5.8" @ 3,000mAh
    6.2" @ 3,500mAh

    Aren't terribly comforting. But I'll see what the reviews say about battery. Maybe Samsung have made these phones extremely efficient.

    If I had an S7 or S7 Edge, I'd consider passing on the S8. Nothing wrong with the S7/S7E - still both good phones and aside from the screen of the S8, there isn't enough for me to justify the upgrade.

    Unfortunately not many features were added to the S8+, let's say other "Chinese brands" have alread 2K screen, the battery could be better/larger. Time will tell.

    It is an iterative upgrade... But u figure upgrading is cheaper than not upgrading because the s8 is$250 with 2 year commitment and if i don't upgrade then Verizon will charge me $480 more over 2 years since i have legacy UDP.

    If you like the new features and think that they are worth it then yes.

    I wish i had gotten an s7 afer my 2nd Note7 return. I paid $100 more for the Edge thinking it was a better phone. Im struggling to hold out for the unnounced Note 8 , I know the preorder goodies look great now but they should be equal or better in August.

    I rolled the dice and ordered the 7 Edge, figuring I could trade down to the S7 if it was too big. I ended up loving it so much I never thought twice about it. It feels really nice in the hand because of the curves. A couple of weeks later I held the S7 and was startled at how uncomfortable it was to hold. The thicker metal frame dug into my hand with every swipe, and after getting used to the 7 Edge, it was actually bordering on painful.

    The S8 is definitely worth upgrading over the S7. Over the S7 Edge? Maybe? I'm still deciding myself.

    I think an argument can be made for both YES and NO. On the no side, we could say that the cameras are very similar, there is marginal improvement or no improvement in the battery life and the finger print sensor is oddly placed. On the yes side, we can say there is a big upgrade in the screen department with near bezeless design, we have an improved front facing camera, have a new Bixby assistant and of course a brand new version of Bluetooth (5.0) which brings a host of new features

    I'm upgrading both my s7 and s7 edge to the s8 and s8+ plus respectively. I think it's worth it in both cases.

    This is a new generation phone. For me 64gb base storage, new design, bigger screen, free gear VR makes it worth it.
