Yes, there is definitely a limit, but it's not relevant here because VR users want as much DPI as possible. It is kinda understandable. Still it would be nice to know the DPI limit of human vision for VR usage, where your phone is only a few cm (like 5cm to be more precise) from your eyes.

personal opinion i guess, depends on usage screen sizes can be useful
with nougat, it have function multi-windows, so its not ridiculous as bigger size can mean better windows view

you should provide screenshot of battery usage with each resolution
whether low resolution giving lower battery usage or not

s7 with nougat update default the display to 1080p(full hd) instead 1440p
but many said it more for performance (ie. animation etc.) rather improving battery life

This video here does a good job explaining a few things about our eyes it also has a couple of links below which can further support what he is saying. Good watch/read if you have the time. Though I agree I don't know if there is a different ppi for VR as most studies are done from about a foot away where we would normally have our phones

There is a difference. And big one. The optics used in VR headsets are a bit like magnifier glass. You can see every pixel pretty clearly. Sure it depends on the optics used, but even S7+GearVR doesn't have enough PPI. So a proper study would be nice, shame I didn't find any.

Paid 650euros exactly 1 year ago for my S7E. And its staying with me a long it works!

And I said this comes from a hardcore Note fan owning SGN phones since 2011.

But I'm super excited about readiing about S8/S8+ when it launches!

More screen real estate in the same form factor. I can live with that.
Yeah, but the good thing is they kept s8 bellow 145mm, actually its 140mm and 2mm smaller then s7.

It's not that big though, the further away from a square the screen is, the smaller the surface area is relative to the diagonal measurement. This screen is much smaller than a 16:9 screen with the same diagonal measurement.

I agree. Design is good but the camera is a disappointment.

Not impressed by any S8, awful battery life, get all the greatest features just to have average battery life, meh.

Mine Mate 9 battery life is phenomenal, while being performance monster without throttling on purpose, so much for so little.

So how long does your new S8,s battery last then?

S5 finger scanner was ultra lame. S8 is probably more comfy than that.

I'm waiting for the courier to deliver my S8. Can post impressions this weekend if you're interested.

For the record I'm upgrading from a S6.

Got my unit and so far it's a fairly big difference between the S6 and S8. The screen obviously since it has this peculiar aspect ratio and also the absence of bezels and the hardware button. I'll miss it but it also gives the phone a completely different look.

Nougat is a fairly big change too so it will also take some getting used to. I've only taken a few pictures but the camera seems to be quite good even though it's "only" 12M. Battery will be the big thing to test but so far it's decent.

7.94% is now "much smaller"?

For the first time I'm not interested in a new release because I've found a phone I love. My moto force z is amazing. I only plan to upgrade when moto releases it's successor. The battery life and motion controls alone, I can't go back.

S8 owners, can you comment on the screen edges touch sensitivity? I returned an S7 edge before coz it was so annoying triggering apps/stuff even when just holding the phone normally.

when I got my s7 edge , I had same issue and sold after a few months. 2 months ago re purchased it and with updates it seems that problem is ALMST GONE. ALMOST.

S8, youtube reviwers saying it is better but still there. sometimes un wanted registered touches .

Buying S8 to brother. I wanted s8 plus yet today is first day of launch I'm here. couldn't find. will toy with s8 further.

I dont feel like the edge is a problem and frankly it's easier to type with one hand now with the edges.

The battery life, omg - that's the best thing. On my frist charge I had a SoT of 5h12min and it operated for 1h18hrs, pretty amazing compared to my S6.

I had to buy a case for my S7 flat because I was doing the same thing, coming from the S5 with much thicker bezels I was constantly pressing the sides of the screen on the S7
