Just got my S8.

I hate the fact that the home button and fingerprint reader were moved to the back. I may have to stay with my S7

Samsung took another step backwards

The Note Edge/Note 4 was the last great Samsung phone, period.
There's a reason I still use mine.

The S6 is still a great phone.

I haven't come across any useful advantage of the S8 over the S7, only the contrary

The screen to phone ratio.
I'm not who you think I am.

I love my S7 edge. The only phone that intrigues me now is the new BlackBerry KEYone.

The S6 is still a great phone.
My wife has it. Her battery is shot and never lasts a day.
I bought new batteries from VZW for my Note Edge and it's like a new phone.

Correct on the battery. I just have juice all the time, but yeah. Great phone if you have power. Still never freezes.

Hence the Note 4/Edge is the better phone. No planned obsolescence.

The Note 8 may be the next Samsung phone worth looking at.  Better finger lock placement.  Better camera. And better battery.

You'd get used to the fingerprint reader back there. Even though they should have put it under the camera.  Oh well. And while I think they've improved things I wouldn't say there's a reason to upgrade from the s7.
