    Default Galaxy S8

    Why oh why would you buy something like this? I mean really, if only to prove that it's better than anything Apple can produce, or its bigger but nothing else?

    Many of us love the S7, so I guess that Samsung are simply a bit short of cash. Much as I love my mobile, I reckon stuff them

    I currently have the Samsung S6 but decided against upgrading to S7. I like the idea of having a camera handy at all times. Having a decent camera might be a deciding point if I was to decide to upgrade to S8.

    I would say exactly the same of the S7 . Why would you buy something like this
    So much money for what is still only a phone after all.

    I just hope the S8 is fireproof.

    I'd never spend that much on a phone, but it is absolutely incredible piece of industrial design!
    Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is good enough for me, and was under $350.

    My latest phone cost under $250 by $1 I have a Vodafone Smart Ultra 7. It continues my tradition of not spending more than $250 on a phone so apart from having an ultra high def screen or camera tell me what a phone costing more can do that mine can't?

    I actually doubt you can find anything.

    I went from the S5 to the S7,mainly because of the better camera,and it's a little smaller in the pocket.It is nicer to use,but the camera decided it for me.

    I will. Even at that price.
    A boy has to have a toy. Even it's it's just one, and it's a ridiculous price.

    If one works hard, one's allowed an extravagance.

    Some may agree, most may not.
