    My main concern with the S8 is it will only have 1 OS update left (10)?

    Also whilst the A30 wide angle camera isnt great, it has one. Along with a big 4000mah battery and a flat screen.

    I really dont like the curved edges on Galaxies, I think having double curved edges and bodies made from glass is bad industrial design. Also the S8 edges just look weird on videos, where the new s10 looks better. I would buy an s10e if it were more affordable as I also prefer its size.

    Im not a power user and the Ram is the same, so Im not sure if there is much benefit in the S8 for me?

    Here the price for a refurbished S8 is about 40% more than a new A30.

    Mostly I use my phone for SMS and Calls, sometimes Skype, web browsing occasionally when not near a notebook and I actually like watching Netflix etc on the Mobile as its easier to fall asleep in bed or to use anywhere than a notebook.

    I think one function the S8 has that I would use is Dex.

    Appreciate any perspective as some times its hard to see what you need vs what everyone else has.

    If you don't like the curved screen, don't buy it. The S8 Active is flat, as well as a few others.
