    Wondering out loud here...For all S8 and S8+ owners in the room... Do you have any regrets now - after several months in - having purchased the phone? Do you still love it, or wish you had held off for another phone (Note 8? G6?).

    Sound off!!

    Only regret is that it never came with dual cameras and I maybe should have waited for the Note 8 for that reason alone. I must still like it though as I traded my s8 Plus for the excellent LG G6 but came back a few months later with the regular s8.

    I dont regret the S8 at all, but I do regret not knowing how bad Bluetooth range was before buying it. Had I known that I may have stuck with my G6 and waited for the Note 8 or V30. Although with those devices going Bluetooth 5 as well, they may be just as bad.

    No regrets, but this is not definitively better than the S7 Edge.

    No regrets whatsoever.

    Best Android phone I've owned so far.

    None at the moment... Okay maybe one ...

    I do really miss the wide angle lens from the LG G6. It was very fun to play around and use :P -- other then that I don't have any complaints. The S8+ is solid.

    US unlocked S8... No regrets. I even find the Fingerprint unlock easy to use! Haven't enjoyed a phone this much since the Note 4.

    My S8+ is the only Android phone that has kept me away from my iPhone for over 2 months now with no desire to go back.

    I haven't had my S8 very long but definitely no regrets yet. Still very happy with it.
    I'm not the biggest fan of Samsung's additions to Android (as I prefer a more stripped down version) but I'm getting use to it.

    How do you like your regular S8 compared to your plus. You must have chosen the regular S8 for a reason this time around. Just curious bc I have the regular S8.

    No regrets except for the random freeze that I face once a week. Love the themes, fonts etc that I can customize without having to root or install a custom rom like I did on my Nexus device.

    Fabulous screen as well.

    Only additional thing I would like is the wide angle lens from LG and dual speakers like that on my Nexus 6

    I normally go for larger phones so automatically chose the s8 Plus when they 1st came out. Bigger screen and bigger battery sound like a no brainer right? The s8 Plus didn't feel TOO big and with the new screen ratio it fitted in pockets just fine BUT it just felt a little awkward at times trying to reach things on the other side of the screen (One Handed Mode did help) and the finger print sensor was an absolute pain. A friend of mine had the regular s8 and as soon as I held it I wish I'd got that instead. It still had a big screen, great battery and was much easier to handle. I'm definitely glad I got the smaller s8 this time for those reasons and it just feels the right size without any compromises

    I love my 8+, but I do wish I would have waited for the note 8 because that's what I really wanted( the Samsung rep told me they weren't doing another note) . I still ended up with a great phone though.

    Bluetooth 5 is supposed to increase the range.

    I just regret not getting a "perfect" model. Mine died on me yesterday. Just started bootlooping for no reason. Waiting to get my warranty replacement.

    I love my S8+. I flirted with the Note FE, but after using a 6.2" infinity display it's hard to go back. I don't think I'll get the Note 8.

    You have a hard time liking any phone. Lol

    What is the issues that are a deal breaker? I'm hating curved screen for typing but man I love the looks of it. And I hate the finger print scanner.

    Regrets, probably not but could be better in some areas like software, speaker quality etc. Generally don't keep the phone more than few months so looking forward to Note 8, Pixel 2 and the new iPhone launches
