That's huge! Certainly looks interesting, although I'm still really happy with my S7 so won't rush to upgrade.

I'm sure Samsung will pull out all the stops for these new handsets so I'd be willing to bet that they will be awesome. How are you finding your S7 Edge now you've had it for a while?

I like it. More so now I've had Nougat on it for a while. Its so much better than Samsungs Marshmallow - I don't know how they make it look so bad!

Not fussed by the edge at all, it looks cool, and seeing pages/text etc 'wrapping' around the edge does look snazzy. However in practical use its pointless. I went for the edge purely for the bigger screen and battery, so I have no regrets. Its a great phone, works well and looks good with a great set of features and a awesome camera.

That being said, I'm really loving the look of the potential new S8, and I'm very interested. :thumb:


Oh and looks like the official Nougat release is today, keep an eye out for an update on your phone. :)

OK, I like the lack of camera hump, bigger battery over a protruding camera any day imo. But if that's the finger print sensor next to he camera... I don't even. :confused:

Yeah I guess that must be the sensor - I suppose it would work well when you hold it or go to pick it up, would take some getting used to though.

My old Nexus 6P had the sensor on the back in the middle below the camera (Link) - was perfect. That position looks retarded and awkward to use.... :confused:

Ah yes I saw that on Reddit this afternoon. All the leaks seem pretty legit, but I'm jsut not feeling it for this phone.

Ooh it does look nice. I love how the screen almost covers the entire front :nod:

Well Samsung has got to do something to raise brand interest after the Note 7 disaster!

Yep, all these leaks are blatantly by Samsung themselves.

I was hoping it wasn't true. I don't like it.
