Though the fingerprint scanner is much more responsive on the S8 and S8 plus as compared to the S7 and the S7 Edge I strongly feel that the Samsung did not do a great job placing the fingerprint scanner in an unreachable position on the S8 and the S8 plus and specifically the S8 plus. I know that the rear camera on the S8 and the S8 plus come with a newer sensor and better image processing but there are no major changes related to the rear camera performance.I personally am of the opinion that people having the S7 or the S7 Edge should not upgrade to the S8 or S8 plus just because of the rear camera performance. They should skip this generation and get the S9 or S9 instead which should be launched this year.
I don't see any difference between the thickness of both phones, and I'm not sure if the S7 Edge is easier to hold based on the button layout of the volume rockers, and power button. I'm still trying to debate on whether if I should upgrade to the Galaxy S7 Edge or the Galaxy S8 from my Galaxy S5.
This is just an emotional thing. You want the best and most sexy phone in the world now? Just buy yourself an S8 or S8+. I mean, how many shoes or bags does your girlfriend buy while the old ones were just fine😉
i am so disappointed with s8, s8+ and note 8. One thing, rear fingerprint screw all up.. I prefer to use my phone laying on the table, without me lifting the phone, put my finger onto the home button, unlocked it with 1 step, right to the main screen....
This is super convenient, however the new phones all comes with rear fingerprint scanner.. Okay, how about iris scanner or face unlock... nope....i have to move my face to the right direction, so close to the phone, to unlock it...
I normally work with my phone lying beside of my laptop. So i just use my finger unlock it to see messages, email or whatever. I am still keeping my s7 edge. or else, If only note 7 fan edition is sold here, i would grab 1.
***bought note7 which i though would be the best phone,too sad with the explosion scandal.***i will wait for the next phone with fingerprint scanner embedded on the front glass. meanwhile,, s7 edge still rocks my world
I have iPhone 6 Plus I've noticed some of my text messages don't get sent but anyway I'm sick of iPhones wanted Samsung after years with iPhone I always liked the look of Samsung s7 edge the s8 plus just looks so big I wanted something smaller then iPhone 6 Plus
I'm using dual sim but I do have concern on the memory too. So Apple products won't suit me even they provides up to 256gb of memory but lacking in dual sim capabilty. Luckily Samsung introduced the 128gb version of S7 Edge Black Pearl & its been couple months already I'm using it. I'm happy with it & I think I'll wait for Note 8 or S9 thou for upgrade. peacee!
its a easy choise the s7 edge
still has the rounded sides
has a better cam
has a finger sensor in the right place
all that is diffrent is a some what %10 speed diffrence and no top or bottom frame not worth the money...
I bought my S7 Edge back in February knowing there would be an S8+, but I still got it because it's price dropped and it even then was heavy on my student funds, so I can only imagine another 200 GBP leaving me broke until the next term. Seeing the comparison here made me feel ensured about having made the right choice of phone after four years of Galaxy Ace II :)
Faster processor, but same RAM, same rear camera, same level of waterproof, S7 Edge has more battery life, fairly similar resolution. With price taken into account as well, I really don't regret getting the S7 Edge for this year, and maybe for the next two/three.
Also, next year when the S8+ drops like the S7 Edge did, there will be next the S9+, so either you pay extra 200 for a year of the best phone, or you pay 200 less and get the second best phone similar to the successor. I chose to go down the latter lane.
I have samsung galaxy s7 EGDE for one weeks. In my opinion this phone is better than Samsung galaxy s8 because it has a lot of advantages. For example :
-s7 EDGE is cheaper than s8
-it is very similar and differences are very small.
- it has bigger batery. s7 EDGE 3600 and s8 3000 what seems to big mistake Samsung.
Before someone will be buying s8 I would recommend to think everybody people.
KaWoN That much of a battery difference??
I love the S7 (Flat), I never bought the Edge variant because of the curved screen. I was conflicted because all I thought about is how a case would look on it, how can you protect an edge that needs to be exposed?
Speaking of 'Xposed', that's why I wouldn't get the S8! I need Marshmallow, and there's already a variety of roms out there that will treat me well.
and guess what??!? TOMORROW.. I will be getting TWO S7 Edges, while keeping my normal S7. One for 'dark' motives (S7F), one unrooted and for regular use (S7E), and the last for the sole treatment of the Forums. You know what I mean; root, roms, Magisk, A.R.I.S.E. Sound Systems, maybe AOSP?, substratum, more modding, and.. more dark things
Oh, and none of them cost me a thing!
I'm using s7 edge since last year and tried to switch to s8 but I really don't like s8 . fingerprint scanner is in very awkward position. and phone screen is not wider as s7 edge screen . I don't advice to upgrade I'm just loving my s7 edge .
i need new phone asap, but want futureproof as i seldom change my phone 2-3 years..should go with s8+ or wait for note? we might get fingerprint scanner on display for note..s8 rear scanner quite turn me off
Absolutely its not worth upgrading. Im gonna stay with S7 edge. Fucking bixby button, weird finger print and less mAh battery and so on... Only shape and display is good in S8. Thats it. NOT WORTH UPGRADING 😠😠😠
Both are so good. I have the smaller black s8 and my friend has the silver s7 Edge. She thinks my s8 is awesome, but sees no reason to upgrade after only a year, so she'll wait for the s9. I upgraded from an iPhone 6 Plus, so it was a good time for a new phone.
S7 edge has problems with the Lcd screen there's green and purple vertical lines and doesn't turn on... A few consumers like me had this issues about the s7 edge... Will the s8plus have the same problem having vertical colored lines on the Lcd screen?
I have a note 5 and i love the phone apart from one thing. I've had it for over a year now and the battery has really deteriorated in terms of on screen time I get barley anything. I really want a new battery so can anyone tell me whether Samsung would fit a new one? I'm from the UK and I know the note was never on sale here, I had to get it shipped in.
In my opinion, it isn´t worthy enough the upgrade, I´ll keep my S7 Edge for some years...
These are my points for why I´ll not change my S7 Edge for the S8 Plus:
1- The battery life is longer on the S7 Edge (3600 mAh vs 3500 mAh of S8 Plus)
2- Both have the same resistance against water and dust
3- The processor on the S8 Plus is just a bit faster than the one in the S7 Edge so I doubt that you´ll notice great difference
4- The design of the S8 was a remarkable achievement, however, the fingerprint scanner was placed in an uncomfortable place and with the iris scanner, the fingerprint scanner is almost useless, besides the edge display is present in the S7 Edge too so...
5- There´s only one version of the S8, the version of 64 gb while the S7 Edge has two versions, 32 and 64 gb but who cares about that? You can expand the memory of your S7 with a SD card, so the change that Samsung did to the S8 was just... To make the phone more expensive, I guess...
6- The camera of the S7 Edge is one of the greatest cameras you can find in a phone, the S8 Plus just did minor changes but still there´s not a great difference between them, and even, they are people commenting that the camera of the S7 Edge looks better in the dark than the camera of the S8 Plus, well sometimes... So if you want to see a great change in camera terms, then you´ll not find anything surprising...
So these are my points about this, if you have the S7 Edge then I would recommend you to wait for (at least) the Galaxy S9 or S10, because honestly I don´t see great differences apart from Bixby and the design of course...
especially since the huawei mate 8 is 7,9mm thick on paper... i figured that this would be about the thickest part of the phone... which is in the middle of the huawei mate 8, since the back is curved... but guess what, the galaxy s8 plus is thinner than the huawei mate 8 ! even though the galaxy s8 plus is 8,1mm thick on paper...
Wow videos like these fooled me so much !
meaning that the s8 plus look SO MUCH THICKER on videos than it is in person !
are they seriously thocker than the s7 edge ? ? ?
my galaxy s8 plus is INCREDIBLY THIN in person !
the s4 speaker is very loud the s7 speaker is not loud if they would have test the speakers they would really know what to do just don't make a phone test the phone first before u put it out on the market ok
