i totally agrre with the OP on the battery strange.

i used a 10inch tab that came with a 10000mah battery, it was a china product but the battery was good it lasted 10hrs on mad usage ie 10% every 1hr....the tab crashed and story ended.


fast forward to today, i currrently use a Sony experia series with a 2500mah battery and beleive me Or not it lasts 9-10hrs on have usage(EVEN WITH 4G NETWORK)

at the end of it all...i have concluded this china guys are really not putting in the batt3 what you see written on them.

You just jumped into conclusion so easily. A 10 inch tab with 10,000 is working harder than a 5" phone by default plus if you're using a cheap tablet, it was probably dying twice as fast due to heating issues.

Regardless I still think the Iphone 7 plus is the best smartphone in the world right now.. the Samsung s8 should compare with the iPhone 8 in September when it's out.. till then, keep competing with the 7 plus✌️✌️✌️

Op I laugh in Swahili when you say no phone comes in compairison. Have you heard about ONEPLUS5 that have almost the same spec with SAMSUNG S8 yet beat S8.
Samsung S8 & Oneplus 5 comes with Snapdragon 835 but, in terms of fast charging, Oneplus 5 beat Samsung S8 because Samsung use snapdragon tech where as Oneplus 5 uses Dash charge

In terms of battery optimization, Oneplus 5 beat samsung

In terms of finger print, Oneplus 5 also beat S8

What are you shouting about?

Is the one plus 5 water resistant?
is the one plus 5 camera any where near?
is one plus 5 display half as crispy as the s8's
Is the one plus 5 a total beauty to hold ...like the s8?
Does the one plus 5 have any idea how smart BIXBY VOICE IS ....siri sef no match
Dos the one plus 5 have an iris scanner that even scans my eye and opens me fone under water?...
Can the one plus 5 last as long as s8 lasts?
Dos the one plus 5 have the class s8 carries with it?
Dos the one plus 5 have the sweet earpiece that comes with s8?
Dos the one plus 5 have a pressure sensitive home button?
and so many more

When you get the answers to this you should appreciate true beauty

FIY; no phone i repeat no phone comes close with head to head comaprison....(Aside from unreleased NOTE 8 )

My observations,
Battery, very solid, its 3000 Mah but performs than 90% of phones with 4000/5000mah out there...

Samsung Pass - Very awesome feature, you don't have to stress yourself login in any site, just put your fingerprint, and you're good..

Bixby Vision (Though is annoying on how/where they placed the button, many accidental press) you can snap any language, or image of any language and extract the text from it and translate it to english, isn't that thrilling? grin also its ability to tell you place or what you snap....

Unlimited Screenshot - you can screen grab all page by screenshot, scroll,screenshot,scroll till u grab the whole place you want to..

Samsung Cloud Sync- turn it from Setting => Gallery, else data nobi ur problem ,was surprised 11 GB has already synchronised, i nearly cry... cry

Other powerful features are the notification system, notification lightning,fast charging, we all know it had best camera, anything else i remember i will add...(I used had best camera becos Note 8 is surely coming to overtake it)

Best Display - Even apple had to pay Samsung for iphone 8 screen grin

Image below is Bixby text extract & Samsung Pass... Can't trade iphone 15 for S6 come talk of S8 , i dey mad ni?grin grin







Bros how much for s8?

The s7 edge is a better phone, just add bixby to it besides it has a very excellent assistant you can talk to. I was really expecting the finger print sensor to be underneath the screen like iPhone is currently suggesting but they took it to the back like infinix-lazy brainless engineering.

The s7 edge is better and I'm waiting for the s9 but in the end the performance difference is so slight from regular so called Chinese phones. What I really love is receiving updates unlike my boom j7.

In the end, these things are just over hyped.

s8 is the best phone on the market at the moment before note8,lgv30 ,iPhone 8/x and pixel XL 2 get released.. I have a hard believing that 3000mah battery is better than a 4000/5000 battery from any other company regardless of optimizations

Oga perform better than 90% of phones with 4000/5000mha my ass undecided how many phones with that battery capacity have you use? Samsung s8 is one of the best phone for now, but the only thing that stand out from what you write is Bixby which is not even better than Google assistant and s8 battery is not even that good, with August update it's even worst


Bixby is far better than Google assistant if you are making in phone queries which is what we do on daily basis but Google assistant is better in web searching.

Like I said "i". It's your opinion but S7 edge defeats it already prior to the launch of S8 which made it to be crowned the best 2016 smartphone.

iPhone isn't gonna be released with under screen finger print scanner. Moving the FPS was to achieve the full screen bezeless form and iphone 8 will have the FPS on the power button like Sony.

The reason Samsung didn't do that is because Apple filed a patent for it. The patent shouldn't have been granted cos Sony have always had the FPS on the power buttons

Cool some prefer the back but the front is that best. In the era of bezelless screens, the front gotta be eliminated only if it's under screen. Now you see it's not Samsung's fault but cunny Apple

Going outright to the back was just a no no for me. Samsung should bring it to the side or even the front in new iterations, until then I'm sticking to my s7 edge.

I don't know, but in this present day and age, I prefer they hide it in the screen. Their engineers should figure it out and patent it.

Lol. It will surely happen, Samsung couldn't do it likewise Apple. The Chinese OEMs couldn't archieve that feat too which says alot about the implementation.
While waiting for that to see the light of the day perhaps with S9 or Note 9 continue enjoying the best 2016 phone or pick up one of it's elder brothers

It is quite better. When looking at the specs of the phone. S8 has snapdragon which is very, I repeated very good at optimization.
Op was comparing to many of all these Chinese OEMS. The problem is many of all these phones use MTK which is power hungry. Snapdragon 835 has a very good power optimization technology that it is able to stand infinix, gionee and even tecno of 5000mah

At first, he said no 4000 & 5000mah beat the battery which I counter him immediately that Oneplus 5 with the same spec beat Samsung S8 in terms of battery optimization & fast charging.



You can type the review of both phones in goole & click Techradar & see for yourself

I don't know about the battery thingy. But as good as the Oneplus 5 is, it isn't generally better than the S8 except on price.

Good thing you mentioned reviews from Techradar and the likes. Phonearena (a very anti-samsung site) gave the oneplus an 8.5 and the S8 a 9. Techradar said "Before you go any further, know the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a lot more expensive than the OnePlus 5. It’s around $730/£690/AU$1,200, which is significantly more than the latest from OnePlus, but it offers a lot more for that extra money."

Many individuals choosethe Oneplus over many phones. That's why it's called a flagship killer. But outside of price, they really don't kill no flagships
