    Not digging the round corners of the screen. Why is this nonsense suddenly a thing?

    • Brad Fortin

      Maybe it’s a throwback to old CRT monitors?

    • Laer

      Maybe arches are stronger then squares. =p

    • Brad Fortin

      What is this, a VW Beetle ad?

    • dc2000

      I actually dig it, it’s different and you can photoshop some wicked wallpapers with this theme. I’m down for something new, rectangular screens are so 2016 😛

    • Eric M.

      To help avoid screen to shatter when dropped it was mentioned in a few posts here

    • Garrett Cooper

      Wait, are you saying the curved screen is supposed to help against the screen breaking? Honest question.

    • Jayce

      Tempered glass is nearly impossible to break head-on but very fragile at the edges. Anything to prevent the edges from impact helps.

  • PeterC

    The Note 7 had all kinds of pre order bonuses for every country. I sure hope the s8 gets something.

  • Victor Creed

    Lol. $1000 no term. Just wait and buy used a month later for $750 or less. Android resale value is trash

    • dc2000

      $1000 no term isn’t bad, because they could of added 10% to make it $1100. Nothing confirmed but I for one am tired of companies gouging customers for handsets when you have such devices as the ZTE Axon 7($500 CAD), OnePlus 3, Alcatel devices.. and others as well(ZUK, Blu, etc).

      I think OP5 would be the way to go.. there are rumors of it getting IP68 as well.

    • Laer

      I am pretty interested in the OP5. Hopefully it is announced this late spring. I reallllllly need to replace my phone and I don’t want to buy a 3T, as the wife has that already.

    • Arman

      You won’t be disappointed, i am still pretty happy with my 3 year old OPO

  • St. Misery

    Congrats to Samsung for making what looks like the most fragile phone ever. Considering all the tech they’re likely cramming into it, it’ll also be damn near impossible to repair too.

    • Chris Chen

      at this rate, the phone might break by you just looking at it.

    • Arman

      Yeah exactly, everyone wants small bezels, good luck holding the phone without opening 3 apps every time.

    • Surveillance

      That’s why I gave my s7 Edge back, this edge screen stuff sucks!

  • Omar

    Any update on G6 pricing? I don’t know how people spend $1000+ on a phone anymore when you can find solid flagship and mid-range phones from other companies for almost have the price.

    • Roger

      *half

    • Omar

      Thanks for pointing that out, fixed.

    • FearlessOneSix

      Ughs. Bell has the G6 outright for $999. Cheaper than the presumed S8 price… by a Loonie.

    • Omar

      That’s really… unfortunate. Not completely unexpected I guess, but still unfortunate.

    $1K for a smartphone lmao. What a joke.

    • Surveillance

      It’s funny but think about what we were paying $1,000 for back in the heydays of personal computers. Specs not even close to this. So in a strange kind of way it’s not bad at all

    • Laer

      I think my apple II E was around $6000… haha A modern smartphone has 100’s of times the computing power and a fraction of the size.

      I totally get what you are going at.

  • Sean-Paul

    You guys complain but then are okay with Apple charging more than this for an iPhone.

    Hypocrites much?

    • Fshumayrqan

      Its morethan apple prices. You’re hypocrite.

    • TheTechSmith

      Samsung final prices are not out yet, but only the 32GB iPhone 7 is under $1000 ($950), and this 32GB is non-expandable. It also has a smaller lower resolution 4.7″ screen so it’s hardly comparable.

    • Sean-Paul

      Lol yeah he obviously doesn’t see that because you know $950 for a set amount of storage for an iPhone is way better and cheaper than $1000 and expandable memory so we don’t get gouged another 100-200 for extra storage.

    • Sean-Paul

      Try that again.

      How much is a 128gb iPhone compared to a 128gb Galaxy.

      Sorry trick question cause an extra SD card is cheaper than 100-200 than what Apple would charge you.

      Try again hypocrite

    • Fshumayrqan

      I am still using a note 5 since the note 7 wiil crush and burn. iphone 7 is 899 dollar Canadian. Everybody knows Android is cheapo.

    • Arman

      Who is OK with apple pricing, I would never pay that much for any phone. Well I would never buy iPhone for any price 😛

  • Roger

    I’ll pass since I want to keep my old plan and don’t want to pay $1000+ for a phone. I’ll probably go with the next iteration of OPO or Lenovo phones.
