    There was no comparison in the article between the S7 edge and the S8.

      I know i was looking for that to see if my recent purchase of the S7 Edge was a good one or if I should have waited.. lol

        It sure seems like unless you watch vr or do serious gaming on it the benefits are slim. I want the three stationary buttons, including the physical home button. I don’t care about the 3mm extra screen size. I’m sticking with my 7edge

    If you go to youtube it explains the difference between the S7 and the new S8.I just bought the S7 on a plan.But I do belive it will be much more expensive for the S8 on a plan.I’m paying $65 a month now unlimited calls and sms.

    Hey Driods i am 56 love all new tech but i iam at this minute staying with 7 edge.. I dont see a heap of benifit in changing just yet.. Also i am happy with the nougat 7.0 update. Cheers

  • Martin Nolan

    I believe the info on screen size is way off…. I think S8 will be 5.7″ and S8 Plus will be 6.2″

  • Neil Stevenson

    I bet the main difference is the s8 comes with nougat install where as the s7 on EE is still waiting for the update

  • jugal riya

    I don’t think I’ll update.. I’m sticking to the S7 edge … It’s good for now… May be s9 or s9+ will break even the little left bezels on s8 n make it all screen .. that must be a reason to update n plus 2 year evolvement of tech will bring some more tech goodness !

    12 MP?

    Do you want to drop a grand on a 2 year device? No matter how good it is, you’ll be done by then.
