  1. I believe that Samsung could truly own the market if they will bring back the exchangeable battery, as this is a feature many will not do without. If they don’t bring this back, LG could surpass them.

  2. Sound good about new Samsung Galaxy S8 edge or Flexi by 2017. I am thinking about to buy new phone Samsung Galaxy S7 edge or Note 5. I haven’t decide it yet. Help me what the best I should buy the phone?

    1. S7 edge or S7 not the note 5. I have interacted with both and I think the s7 series is better but that’s just me :)

      1. ive tried s7 and note 5. stayed w note 5 only for the s pen. put spen in s7, and samsung will blow others away. just right form AND spen? what more could you want.

    2. When the s8 comes out, Apple is going to be left in the dust. Apple should just go back to making just computers.

  3. no they wont, Samsung doesn’t need to have a exchangeable battery because they already have a good battery, but lg needs that because their battery is no that good so lg would not surpass them, also people are more used to samsung.

  4. Samsung makes a beautiful curved screen tv, would like to see a phone besides lg make one. also would be nice to have stereo speakers like my old omni did. Got to have a replaceable battery. Water resistant of course.

  5. I saw the feature of galaxy note 6 now i am confused which one is better so tell me shich one should i buy

  6. very nice s8…………………………………..
    and personality mobile

    and beautiful and resonable price ……….

  7. Here’s the thing about the current S7 battery, it’s a bummer that you will loose your battery before you can knock out a 3 hour movie when enjoying it on a Gear VR unit (awesome by the way, the gear vr that is not the battery). With that being said, if they give the S8 a 6200 mAh battery that is no longer going to be an issue. I am on that band wagon as soon as it is released :)


  9. Im excited as to what this means for portable Vr. The S7 is 50% more powerful than the S6 so imagine double the power of the S6

  10. This is really exciting. The s8 is being designed to support the upcoming GearVr V2 which will support positional tracking (lean in, lean out, side to side) and hand motion controllers for wielding a sword or playing table tennis. 😀

  11. With the galaxy s6 I (surprisingly) never heard of people having problems with their battery needing to replace it….. 6200mah is huge!. S6 is 2500mah and that lasts me all day or about and about 3 hours GearVr gameplay.

  12. Honestly, both the S8 Edge and the Note 7 Edge will be quite incredible, however, you would need to decide between, a big phone or a small phone. I believe the Note 7 Edge will feature something like a 5.7″ inch display. And the S8 Edge will have a 5.3″ inch display.
