    Is possible that Samsung has leaked how the S8 will look like

    Or it might be just another concept video. Nothing is real in these videos anymore.

    Yeah, that's what I thought.
    If the S8 is great, I will most likely get the big version

    If Apple hadn't removed the headphone jack, I would have considered them, but the fools made a nonsene move.

    I don't understand the thing about the headphone jack. I'm not saying that as a fanboy,
    it's just that I haven't used my headphone jack in over a year. Bluetooth and wireless
    headphones are the future. For mobile phones anyway.

    Personally I prefer the headphone jack in my cell phone because I use it sometimes with my desktop headphones, which can be switched from 1/4" jack to 3.5 mm jack.
    I don't want to waste money on another unit just for wireless listening or wasting money on adapters.

    Wireless headphones may be the future, but it's certainly not the present. This forced evolution is just a middle finger to their customers. What's worse is that other companies will follow the trend. If we started seeing declining market numbers of wired headphones and other peripherals, then I would at least understand that it is indeed a slowly dying market and there needs to be a valid replacement. Today, however, it is not the case and I see it as "just because we could" type of a scenario.

    Just because we see electric vehicles on the roads doesn't mean it is time to stop producing internal combustion engine powered ones.

    That's fair enough. I'm likely going to upgrade to the iPhone 8 this year, headphone jack or not. :)

    Samsung revealed what caused the Note 7 to explode.
    In a nutshell, it was poorly designed/manufactured batteries

    Just 4GB RAM is an odd choice for a 2017 flagship from Samsung. Maybe they did some wizardry with their optimizations. :stig:

    Maybe wireless charging will stick around this time. I loved it on my Lumia 920.

    The G6 does look nice, although I am looking forward to what the 'V30' will be like. The V20 is a great phone and if they improve on that it could be a top phone.

    Yeah, that's just a silly exclusivity
    Heh, I though the G6 was the top phone from LG lol

    Samsung is still doing it's edge screen which I think is more an annoyance than useful because anything touching the edge part interferes with what you are doing sometimes

    So, my Samsung S7 was upgraded automatically to version 7, Nougat
    I do not like the new icons and UI, feels boring
