    Same love the design. Using a pixel xl at the moment great phone but looks crappy compared to the Samsung range, I was expecting them to improve the camera kinda a let down but the overall design is Fantastic!

    This is getting a bit ridiculous with screen sizes.

    Yea if the camera had been a significant upgrade from the S7/E camera, I might have been tempted, not really bothered about the front facing camera, for selfies you don't really need mega resolution anyway

    Oh my god, that's one exceedingly beautiful phone! But the price tag will probably be ridiculous.

    About the Same Size

    Did you mean phone size? If that's the case, then I definitely agree with you. For the S8, though, the screen size is a bit bigger (they made it taller and shrunk the bezel to accommodate), but the phone itself looks to be roughly the same size.

    More screen real estate in the same form factor. I can live with that. :)

    799 and 899 euro / £689 and £779 respectively means = 856.15 US Dollars and 955.56 US Dollars + Sales taxes + other taxes fcc etc... and we are looking at way over $1,000US Dollars mark after everything is said , done and paid for :eek: holly mother of Jesus. Samsung really has up the prices on their phones two times fold on the last few years. I was hoping for better pricing and i was looking forward to get me a new S8 , but i think i will pass this time around and my S6 will have to do for a couple more years then :frown:

    The screen resolutions on these phones are becoming insane... If we go by current research you won't even be able to see most the pixels on this screen making it useless and just drain your phone batter... With a dpi of 567 ppi and it being estimated that the max ppi the human eye can see is 300 (least by the studies I've found) these screens must just be pointless

    I think most of these "The human eye can only see xxxx" are BS

    People still quote that the human eye can't distinguish frame-rates above 30 some days, other days it's 60 depending on the thread/argument

    As long as they give you the option to turn the resolution down I'm fine with it. I keep my S7 at 720p instead of 1440p unless I'm watching a movie at work or something. Otherwise it just drains the battery too fast.

    Many tests were done on battery life vs resolution on the S7 running Nougat, and at best they gained 30 minutes by lowering resolution, most tests showed no difference in battery life, all pixels are being powered no matter what rez you're running it at, only time it might help is gaming

    Battery life is significantly better for me when its set at a lower resolution.

    You're talking about FPS i'm speaking about resolution, the human eye must have a limit, and studies have found 300 PPI on 20/20 vision to be about the limit, though this might change for everyone. considering most monitors these days are around 100 PPI
