    1. The exynos of last year was more powerful than SD820. So we should be lucky to get the exynos if its the same for this year as well.

  1. What I heard is camera is same as s7 edge and no Bixby. Smaller battery than s7 edge only difference is screen sizeis it good to upgrade from s7 edge? because I am using s7 edge.

    1. From S7 edge, it’s definitely not worth it. The only additions are:
      1. Display and overall design of the phone (Which is beautiful)
      2. Iris Scanner and Facial Recognition (Doesn’t matter to me)
      3. Better Front facing camera
      4. Bluetooth 5
      5. Better Processor
      6. Bixby
      7. Dex
      Do these things really matter? For me only the 1st point matters.

      This is just my opinion though.

  2. Samsung Galaxy S8 launching in India, yaaahoooo, I will buy the S8+ if price is good otherwise S8 is also good, I just love big screen.

  3. Samsung Galaxy S8 launch in India on 19th but when will it be available in store? I am planning to get it I already am using Galaxy S7 Edge, hope they come with some good exchange offers.

  4. Also, Bixby, Samsung’s own assistant is cool new feature and the newly designed UI different than TouchWIZ is great improvement.

  5. By default Both S8 and S8 + are default to Full HD resolution only. If anyone needs then can enable Quad HD mode. Also the new processor are 10nm and highly energy efficient so 3000 and 3400 mAH battery would be sufficient.

  6. Waiting to get S8…sure to be over priced in India, but will be phone to buy in 2017.
