Pretty underwhelming phone. No 4K HDR display, 600mAh less battery than S7 edge, No Quanovo charging so battery life will be $hit within 8 months, No front facing stereo speaker, No build in noise cancelling feature, Same 1/2.6 inch IMX260 last year camera sensor, no 960fps video capabilites, same amount of ram as s7 and it's not even THE EFFICIENT LPDDR4X version, Insanely laggy and bloated software and the last to send update ( even huawei is faster than samsung, lol )https://www.droid-life.com/2017/03/27/unlocked-galaxy-s7-samsung-hates-never-updates-received-marchs-security-patch-isnt-nougat/ yet they are asking for that kind of price.

XZP is definitely the better.

Nice phone with impressive size . Crazy to have a such a large screen on a small by comparison phone


Oh and I am waiting on tsepz to criticise the phone for the small size battery like he did for LG G6 😜😜

Also glad to see it is cheaper then rumoured (still expensive though ) .... starts from £689 not £799

S8s battery is a concern, especially considering the Display is a tad larger than the G6s. Hopefully the new Exynos 8895 is just if not more efficient as the 8890 in the S7 and S7 Edge as that did wonders for S7 range.

Unfortunately for those who will be getting the Snapdragon 835 version, generally Snapdragon is less efficient than Exynos.

Exynos 8895 has to be way more efficient considering that the size if the screens is way bugger than on S7 and S7 edge.

The review on android police mentioned a default resolution of fhd which can be changed in settings. Maybe this is the reason - battery life?

Other than this everyone seems to be very impressed with the built and design of the phone- that is good news.

So the Default Resolution is something that started with the Galaxy S7 Range Nougat Update back in January, basically when you update it defaults to HD1080P but I switched my S7 Edge back to WQHD, I did do a Battery test run with it in 1080P Vs. 1440P and the difference was probably an extra 30mins of usage or so.

The point of the S8 using 1080P is to ensure that it is compatible with all apps as not all apps support the new 18:9 aspect ratio as we have seen with the LG G6 reviews, YouTube for example is still in 16:9.

Most people will probably never have the Black Bar problem on their S8 when watching e.g. YouTube videos as they will stay on 1080P.

Now the cool part? Like the S7 the S8 has a Video Enhancement option, what this does is it boosts a number of things like Brightness, Saturation and Resolution to suit the video you are watching, so if for example you use the Netflix app it should adjust to 18:9 aspect ratio when you watch a video of that setup.

The Resolution Adjustments are also great for gaming, tune it to 720P with highest FPS the game can do and you are set.

It seems Samsung began preparing for the Aspect Ratio change years ago as all this means a more seamless experience on the S8.

Going to check some Hands-on reviews now.

Actually it is not full hd resolution but slightly higher to preserve the aspect ratio so i still think it is to do with battery more than other things . Also it seems like on you tube you are getting the black bar but it encouraging to see apps are displaying properly. Also I read that more content is fitted with emails (hopefully web browser too ) which is good.

Ars technica is praising the new design as well so that's good. I can't wait to see one in person .

Hands on review are praising the new dock system , so reviews so far generally positive

I hope it's for Battery but adjusting resolution can only help so much with battery, as the Display still lights up all the pixels, it's just the image that is now rendered in 1080P.

I wonder if the guys getting black bars in YouTube are using the phone at +WQHD.

Some are saying the New Dock system is as good as Continuum, I think Samsung partnered with MS to get the MS suit working well with it.

This gets me excited for the Note 8, if I can get a Note 8 with Samsung DeX I'll be very happy.

Any app that is updated/released from a developer to support Nougat 'should' also be compatible with the new screen ratio of the S8. Or developers can now, with Nougat, support ratios like this. Something along those lines anyway If an app/game doesn't support it, Samsung added an option to change it to fit the screen. Pressing the recent/apps key on the left will, as you know, bring up the recent apps. The new option next to the multi window button is an 'aspect ratio' button that will change the app to fit the whole screen. Once you change it, it stays that way until you change it back. Though I'm not sure why'd you want that...

The phone will have 3 modes:
- Gaming
- Entertainment
- High performance

They change things like resolution, brightness etc.

Bloody hell I sound like a sales person!!

Wrong!
XZ Premium was the first.
Are you nervous?

Engadget have a Hands-On with Samsung DeX, I must say it is very impressive

I think The Verge are taking into consideration the fact that the Galaxy S8 will be in consumer hands before the XZ Premium, that's why they have called it the first.

Nice, similar ISOCELL sensor as in my S7 Edge Exynos (L1 in the S7 range). It does a fantastic job, Android Authority did do a comparison last year to the Sony sensor:

Galaxy S7 Isocell vs Sony camera sensor: what’s the difference?


Conclusion

The winner here is the Samsung’s ISOCELL sensor, as it got the upper hand in more sections. But remember that, ultimately, this is a very subjective matter. And Sony’s sensor is very close behind, so you’re not really losing with either variant.
