samsung-galaxy-s8-teaser-001

SamMobile is reporting today that Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S8 smartphone will replace the physical Home button with a non-moving variant embedded right behind its AMOLED screen. The firm is also said to adopt USB-C for charging and data transfer and ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack to make the phone thinner and lighter.

The Galaxy S8 should be unveiled in February 2017 and could beat Apple’s rumored iPhone 8 to the virtual Home button.

This means that Galaxy S8 owners will need to purchase a USB Type-C adapter (which Samsung may include in the box with the device, like Apple does with the iPhone 7 series) to connect their existing wired headphones. And like with the iPhone 7, Galaxy S8 owners won’t be able to plug in the phone and use wired headphones at the same time.

Removing the 3.5mm headphone jack should let Samsung engineer a thinner device with more space inside for a bigger battery and other features, such as stereo speakers which some sources believe will be made in collaboration with Harman, a company that Samsung is acquiring for $8 billion.

In another post, SamMobile claims that the device will ditch the physical Home button, retaining 2K pixel resolution (2,560-by-1,440) of its predecessor rather than upgrade the display to 4K pixel resolution. The phone is thought to use a new material to boost the quality of its Super AMOLED screen.

From that report:

The new Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S8 is going to have the standard RGB arrangement, it will consume less power and will have a longer service life. The RGB array is going to provide a noticeable improvement in virtual reality environments.

We’ve also heard that Samsung is going to ditch the home button in its next flagship. The screen-to-body ratio is going to be very high and the design will be similar to that of the Galaxy Note 7. The fingerprint sensor will be embedded within the display itself making the Galaxy S8 the first handset to feature proper optical fingerprint identification.

Aside from these rumored features, the Galaxy S8 is also said to integrate the praised Viv personal assistant which was developed by Siri creators a few years ago and purchased by the South Korean conglomerate in October 2016.

Korean news site ET News reported that following Note 7 fires, Samsung is now “paying extra careful attention” towards Galaxy S8 development because the handset will reportedly bring out “huge changes” in terms of industrial design and hardware features.

Digital Music News first reported back in September that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge (respectively code-named“Dream” and “Dream2”) may replace the 3.5mm jack with either a proprietary port or USB-C.

    So predictable

    • Chidi

      I know right?

      • Endriu Andrei

        Why ?

      • Blip dude

        Why? Because these were clowning around saying that their Note 7 “even includes a headphone jack” as if it was some sort of tactic to sway people into buying the Note 7 instead.

        Now if this turns out to be true, then it’s just plain hypocrisy on their end. And it’s not like Apple was the first to ditch the headphone jack, but it’s funny how they suddenly want to do it when Apple has done it and now suddenly they feel like its the right move too.

      • Endriu Andrei

        I don’t care , if I don’t get a jailbrake by then , I will switch to that galaxy 8 edge 🙂

      • Blip dude

        Then why the F would you ask why??

      • Endriu Andrei

        Chill bro :))

      • Blip dude

        Still doesn’t answer my question though.

      • Endriu Andrei

        I was curious to see why you care so much that Samsung copied Apple … it’s not like Apple never copied anything …

      • tariq

        Ill switch from S7edge to i8 if JB comes out lol

      • Digitalfeind

        Like when Apple had to make iPhones bigger??

      • Rowan09

        Phones were big before Samsung, Dell make the Streak 5.0 and HTC made a big phone when phones were small then Samsung. I give them credit for making it popular though. As Blip said they bragged about the Note 7 having a headphone jack and now this is rumored for the S8. They should have just shut their mouth and I would be fine.

      • jOn Garrett

        Phones were big before Samsung? Well phone also lacked headphone jacks before Apple–the Oppo R5 removed it in 2014.

      • Rowan09

        Yes Dell made the first “phablet” with the Dell Streak 5.0 and the first mini Tablet with the Dell Streak 7.0. No one said Apple removed the headphone jack first, I even stated Motorola did it and no one cared. We all stated as well that Samsung made fun of them only to be rumored to do the same thing. Samsung already had the S8 in mind and probably in prototype when the Note 7 was released and yet still they made this joke, but the joke was the Note 7.

      • Blip dude

        And where in that sentence did I say Apple was first to do something?? Let me try to re-iterate what I said. Apple is not the first in everything, but it seems that Samsung sometimes takes the exact footsteps that Apple does.

        If they do decide to remove the headphone jack in their next gen even after making that statement, then why even glorify the fact that the Note 7 “even includes a headphone jack” and then shove your own foot in your own mouth??

      • Digitalfeind

        Like I wrote when Apple was defending small iPhones and then made the jump to larger phones. Now take your foot out of your mouth. Samsung is doing the same as Apple and Apple was doing the same as Samsung. Apple was criticizing large phones and then made them bigger. Remember when Apple made fun Samsung and other for churning out products every few months?? Remember the iPad 3 and how quick they came out with the iPad 4 and offered iPad 3 owners discounts or replacements?? Yeah that hypocrisy.

      • johnny_fy

        Sorry didn’t see your comment

      • Rowan09

        Hold on Apple still doesn’t churn out products as fast. That one iPad situation which caught many people off guard including myself is not Apples common practice and never happened again. Samsung does make too many phones that’s not even an opinion. When Apple defended small phones people did want smaller phones, it wasn’t until the HTC 10 and Evo made bigger phones popular then Samsung followed with the S3 and Note 2. The Note 1 was a flop and people started to pay attention to Samsung after the S3.

      • johnny_fy

        Steve Jobs said no one would buy a big phone. Yet I guess Apple had to put their foot in their mouth as you say because they literally gave a big phone. I do use the iPhone 7 plus as my daily driver, but come on, there are phones out their with a bigger screen and smaller footprint than this thing. So when the next iPhone has a smaller bezel, and higher quality screen what will this comment section look like?

      • Rowan09

        Hold so Apple following a common upgrade cycle is copying now? So if they make a 4K screen it’s copying? If they make bigger batteries it’s copying? Come on you are misrepresenting the point being made. Samsung made fun of Apple with the Note 7 (which was actually a joke) saying they still have a headphone jack and then is rumored to be making a phone without one that I’m sure is already in prototype. When Steve Jobs made the big phone statement smaller phones were still popular and Apple followed the market when 1. People wanted bigger phone and 2. the lack of good battery life in smaller phones.

      • jOn Garrett

        The problem is that Apple isn’t first, they never are but still claims are made that Samsung is following Apple when Apple isn’t the one leading.

        Wha did you say when Apple finally got water/dust resistance?

        What are you going to say when Apple has a curved AMOLED display with glass front and back with wireless charging and water and dust resistance? Probably fast charging too.

      • Blip dude

        I could’ve cared less about water resistance especially since it still voids the warranty. Why make such a stupid ass claim and then still void the warranty if liquid still somehow manages to make its way into the device.

        I don’t care about AMOLED on phones either. I watch 360/480p videos on YouTube because A) I have an iPad and B) a 1080p TV that I use to watch TV and I watch at 720p because that’s just extra time waiting for buffer. Why on earth watch a 1080p or 1440p video on an AMOLED screen phone when I barely use 720p on larger screens??

        As far as wireless charging, in MY opinion it’s useless because my phone is still tethered to a puck. You wanna impress with wireless charging?? Let me know when WiFi charging is actually a thing. Until then, if I can’t move around with my phone while it’s still charging, ITS NOT WIRELESS CHARGING!!!!

        Fast charging is something I’ll admit I would like to see, but my phone already charges from 20% to 80% in 15 to 20 min while in Low Power Mode, so really , unless fast charging means going from 20% to 80% in 5 min then I can be patient.

      • johnny_fy

        Remember when Apple switched to lightning. Did they include an adapter? No. When Samsung switched to USB C they included an adapter. A little while later when Apple released the iPhone 7 they included a headphone adapter. Can we just stop with this shiz and accept that this “copying” is good for all consumers. There’s plenty of examples of each other copying. Get on with your day.

      • Rowan09

        Hold on releasing an adapter is copying? Dude we are talking about Samsung making fun of the iPhone with the Note 7 saying it still has a headphone jack and now a couple months later might be doing the same thing. Steve Jobs or Apple isn’t God and they were right when they said people didn’t want bigger phones, time however proved them wrong. Regardless they had no choice but to go bigger for better battery life.

      • Blip dude

        How is removing the headphone jack good for consumers. It’s stupid regardless if Apple, Samsung, LG, or Motorola did it first because it affects the consumer.

        The difference is that with Apple pulling this stunt people gave into a compromise. But a compromise does not equal a satisfaction. Don’t tell people that just because they can afford a $600+ smartphone they should spend the extra money on Bluetooth headphone they don’t want nor need. Don’t force technology that consumers don’t want on them.

    • YaBoyLilMayo

      And Apple isnt predictable? Foh they been dropping the same phone for the past three years bruh

      • SkyFall

        I kinda agree but you are kinda wrong…”they been dropping the same design not phone”

        iPhone 6: +New design
        +Larger screen
        +Same camera MP
        +Better processor
        -Not durable
        -Bad battery life (on 6)

        iPhone 6s: -Same design
        +Way better cameras
        +Force Touch
        +Way better processor
        +Higher durability
        -Slightly better battery

        iPhone 7: -(Kinda) New colors
        +Better 3D Touch
        +Even better cameras
        +Stereo Speakers
        +Water resistant
        +Higher capacity (for the same money)
        +Way faster processors
        + Better battery life (On both 7 and 7 Plus)
        -No 3.5mm jack

        If you compare the 6 to the 7 they might look the same but the 7 is a beast compared to the 6 in every single way.

    • jOn Garrett

      5 Android phones have no headphone jack including the Oppo R5 from 2014.

      It’s an Android trend that Apple followed so why can’t Samsung?

      • Rowan09

        No because none of those phones are even close to making anything industry standard. Did phone copies copy Apple after they made Touch ID or let me guess since phone did it first Apple copied them and so did Samsung, Motorola, etc?

      • jOn Garrett

        So now we switch the conversation to who is setting the industry standard?

        Obviously those companies did set the standard if one for it and now 7 others have?

        3D touch is just a better version of Samsung’s air view from 2012 or Google long press. In fact, Samsung experimented with 3D touch before settling on Air View.

        There’s a reason Samsung for rid of it and don’t want it, because it’s a useless gimmick.

      • Rowan09

        Hold are you saying Motorola set the standard for fingerprint scanner on a phone? The Atrix was the first that I know of and that was in 2011 and the 5S came out 2 years later. Are you telling me Motorola with the Atrix where the scanner was horrible (I had one) had everyone follow them even though no one did until Touch ID was released? Dude come on man.

      • jOn Garrett

        What’s your definition of setting a standard? A company that creates a product or an idea or another company that didn’t but copies it, rebrands it and call it their own?

        Samsung didn’t originate large screen phones but they set the standard no? And Apple followed yes?

        What about wearables? Samsung wasn’t first but what other OEM including Apple was interested in them until after Samsung had several of them on the market?

        Samsung made curved screen displays and everybody including Apple is now following, so standard setting or no?

        So back to my original question, how do you define standard setting?

      • Rowan09

        Samsung made larger phones popular by giving it a name but before the Note and S3, bigger phones were already standard in Android due to battery issues. HTC, LG and Motorola were all make phones bigger than the iPhone. Samsung did make it popular by giving a name to it and created the term “phablet”. When Samsung released wearables their were also tons on the market. Apple didn’t create the market either because Pebble existed and was the first commercially successful smart Watch. Apple and Samsung followed the market with Apple being the most popular. LG made a curved display with the Flex before Samsung make the Edge. Setting a standard means something that everyone follows after you do like Apple releasing Touch ID and now every phone needs a fingerprint scanner. Apple was far from the first but it was directly after they made the move everyone followed.

  • Joey

    I predicted Samsung would copy iPhone 7 and lose the headphone jack…before KGI did.

    • Endriu Andrei

      like apple is the first one to lose the headphone jack ….

      • 5723alex .

        On a grand scale, yes.

      • jOn Garrett

        WTF is a grand scale? Did other OEMs sell just one or 2 handsets?

        Juezus fkin Christ you IDiots will justify anything

      • tariq

        Im a Samsung fan, but i agree. Apple did make the “first” move when they got rid of headphone jack. But i hope S8 doesnt tho

      • jOn Garrett

        Apple did not, the Oppo R5 did that in 2014 and 3 other phones after that.

      • tariq

        On a grand scale, apple did.

      • Rowan09

        Yet they were the only one being killed in the media and made fun of for it. Motorola did it and no one cared, but as soon as they did the world was coming to an end.

      • AMB_07

        People didn’t care as much about Motorola (some still did) because not only does Motorola offer other smartphones in parallel to this one WITH a headphone jack but Motorola is not the only choice in Android anyways so you can just bounce towards another brand if you’re not happy.

        Apple is the only one offering iOS and if they keep the headphone jack off future models then people won’t have another new iOS device to fall back on.

        I believed it was a bad idea when Motorola did it, I still believe it’s a bad idea when Apple does it. Just keeping it consistent here.

      • Rowan09

        When would be the right time? It’s obvious the headphone jack was on its way out with Bluetooth tech, etc. I don’t see any issue but believe Apple should have included wireless charging to offset the loss of a headphone jack.

      • AMB_07

        I believe in progress and I believe that the headphone jack has to be replaced eventually. But I think both Motorola and Apple have yanked it off their phone without providing an option that is as intuitive, as simple, as cheap and most importantly: open.

        The headphone jack is open-standard and anyone can include it on their device. But Apple is banking on their lightning ports to which every company has to pay royalty to them to be able to use it. At the very least Motorola is using USB-C which is open but both it and the lightning port are not exactly as intuitive IMO.

        At the very least both still have Bluetooth which is open and generally easy to use although we can’t deny the simplicity of the headphone jack. But Bluetooth still has ways to go to be as reliable as the headphone jack.

        Overall, I think the move is a bit premature and doesn’t offer a universal replacement that improves on it. If all companies adopt a new standard that is open then I think the move would be worthwhile.

      • Rowan09

        The replacement is bluetooth. We are in a wireless world now and people are trying to be clutter free.

      • AMB_07

        Bluetooth has been around for a while and I don’t think it’s as reliable as the classic jack yet. Replacing with a less reliable standard is not a solution.

      • Rowan09

        What’s so unreliable about Bluetooth? While the sound may be off at times it’s fine and most people are going Bluetooth over wired devices. Using a digital connector like USB C and lightning can make you have control over your actual sound.

      • AMB_07

        “While the sound may be off at times”

        You partly answered your own question. Connection issues plague bluetooth headsets and that is reason enough to call it less reliable than the headphone jack.

      • Rowan09

        No because you’ll always have some lose somewhere. Connection issues would be not being able to connect at all. The headphone jack is old and needed to be changed nothing wrong with making a decision. I only said Apple should have included some type of wireless charging even like the Apple Watch for people who use wires and want to charge their devices.

      • Mike

        “We are in a wireless world now and people are trying to be clutter free.” Are you serious? If they wanted to be so clutter free than why not also add wireless charging? It’s not called clutter free when you have to carry around a dongle or different wire just to plug into your new macbook… It’s more of a hassle than anything else.

      • Rowan09

        Maybe because wireless charging isn’t really wireless and real wireless charging is not ready for commercial use. Charging on a pad is not a solution because you still need to plug in the pad.

      • Mike

        Yes but you don’t have to keep plugging the phone when charging. Plus all these people saying that you will be able to charge your phone from 10ft away is all bs. Removing the headphone jack then sending light port headphones + a dongle is not a solution.

      • Rowan09

        Can you use the phone while it’s charging on the pad to make a call? Or would it be just awkward? Wireless charging on the Galaxy devices are useless. Now if they do get rid of the headphone jack it now becomes a useful feature for charging while listening to music. Apple is rumored to feature real wireless charging which means not having to plug a wire into the device or place it on a pad. The technology already exists but not used in commercial applications. Whether Apple goes the truly wireless route or pad route they need a wireless option to offset the lack of a headphone jack while charging a device and listening to music.

      • Mike

        Yes but knowing apple even if the feature is out there they won’t use it hint the OLED screen. Wireless charging is useful because you can just throw it on a mat or slide it into a slot in your car and it will charge. There’s no need to remove the headphone jack to make it useful. There’s always bluetooth which you can use to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time.

      • Rowan09

        But what’s different than just putting your phone with the wire? Your mat is plugged in and then your phone is placed on a mat which if you need to use will be taken of the mat and stop charging. OLED is not the only option and as rumored Apple is looing into moving to MicroLed. As long as battery life is better is all I care about, I careless about OLED screens. There’s not much room left in a phone so something would have to go. Apple needs some form of wireless charging because they have only 1 connector so people cannot charge and listen to music at the same time.

      • jOn Garrett

        Samsung got killed in the media over the Note batteries yet Apple gets a pass for its batteries AND A bad displays!!!

      • Rowan09

        This must be a joke. Dude Samsung knew about a dangerous device that could cause bodily harm and even death. Samsung didn’t get killed for the Note 7 they killed themselves when they released “fixed” versions that didn’t fix anything. They were greedy and failed that’s why they got bad press.

      • jOn Garrett

        So they would knowingly throw away $15 billion? Ruin their brand and harm their reputation knowing that they would release the next version the following year and gain nothing at all?

        So what’s Apple’s excuse? Did they know the displays would flicker and die? Did they know the batteries were sh1ty? And they did it for both the iPhone and iPhone 6?

        What’s the excuse for having 2 flaws in one device?

      • Rowan09

        Dude I owned both devices and never had that issue. How many phones are affected and when replaced how many phone still have the same issues? You don’t even know but speaking out your behind. You also mentioned that anyone that knows about phones would know the Note 7 issue wasn’t the battery it was due to it being thin. Dude the Note 7 is 7.9mm and the S7 is 7.7 so what’s your excuse now? Samsung made a dumb move and even said they rushed the Note 7 to market to 1up the iPhone 7 due to it being a minor physical upgrade.

    • jOn Garrett

      I predicted Apple would copy Samsung and get a curved AMOLED display with glass front and back with wireless charging, fast charging and water and dust resistance.

      I also predicted the 180° that’s going to be done on this and every other Apple fan page when the iPhone gets all those features criticized as gimmicks.

      • Rowan09

        They already did front and back glass, switching to micro led after Amoled (Samsung doesn’t own Amoled screens), the Apple Watch has wireless charging, Samsung did not create water or dust resistance on a phone Sony did this way before. Hardware upgrades are rarely ever gimmicks, wireless charging on my S7 Edge is an absolute gimmick because it doesn’t solve any issue.

      • jOn Garrett

        They did glass front and back purely for looks–on an iPhone it served ZERO purpose.

        Samsung used it to accommodate wireless charging, apple clearly is switching back for the EXACT same reason.

        Explain how wireless charging on the S7 edge is a gimmick?

        The issue is solves is having the ability to charge without a charging cable or outlet when you’re out and about. I can sip a coffee at Starbucks or have lunch at McDonald’s while my phone rests on the mat.

        For me, I like having it on the mat while I’m sleeping. My wife works nights and I have 2 kids so I often wake up several times a night and check my phone each time.

        It’s nice to not have to fiddle around in the dark for the cable.

      • Rowan09

        Here is why it’s a gimmick because you still have to plug in the mat. My wife has one and it’s sitting in the draw never used because it doesn’t solve a issue and when you need to use the phone you have to take it off the mat defeating the purpose of charging your device. If they get rid of the headphone jack however it now moves to something needed due to having only 1 port for headphone and charging. The Apple Watch uses wireless charging and due to the size it’s needed because my wife’s Samsung smart watch is a hassle trying to plug it with a micro USB.

      • Rowan09

        What does having a charging pad solve? My wife has one and it’s sitting in the draw collecting dust. If you need to use the phone you have to take it up off the mat and stop it from charging every time. If a charging pad is needed anyone can buy one for any phone now. Why would you have to fiddle around just get a longer cable? Apple needs some kind of wireless charging even the dumb version on devices now because they only have 1 port for charging and listening to music. A wireless charging system will help to alleviate not being able to charge and listen to music at the same time. If the S8 removes the headphone jack then wireless charging is no longer a gimmick but just like eye scroll it’s not necessary right now.

    • jOn Garrett

      I predicted that you and every other iDiot would a 180° on the edge desig, AMOLED display, wireless charging and water/dust resistance once apple copied it.

      Same as you did when they stole widgets, notification shade, power saving mode, quick settings, and split screen.

      • Joey

        idiot? says the android user…grow up.

  • Vipal Desai

    I wonder where they got the idea from… humm…

    • jOn Garrett

      The Oppo R5 of 2014 and the other 4 Android phones that removed it BEFORE Apple.

      I wonder where Apple for its idea for a curved AMOLED display with glass front and back with wireless charging and water and dust resistance and fast charging.

      • Rowan09

        You mean the filings they had for years for a curved glass iPhone? Dust and water resistance is something a copy can own now? If that’s the case Song owns it not Samsung.

      • jOn Garrett

        Samsung had filings for years too, they also had a phone on the market from years ago.

        Apple has a patent for pattern unlock, you gone tell me they created that? They are known to patent what they didn’t create (slide to unlock) or patent what they see others working on (foldable displays)

        Yes, water and dust resistance is a feature to own if removing a headphone jack is or owning a rectangle with rounded corners.

      • Rowan09

        Apple had the concept since 2011 and got the patent in 2014. You have no idea what the patent is on not just having a curved display. You can copy a persons design, layout, font, etc. As a matter of fact Google has a rule that the power down button on all Androids have the same design. Software design can easily be stolen and yes the Galaxy S did copy the iPhone design, whether it’s something for the court I don’t know I’m not a lawyer, but to say they didn’t is a lie. Once again a design of a phone can also be stolen. I would copy Apple too because obviously Samsung wanted the number 1 spot. HTC was the copy for Android not Samsung, it wasn’t until the Galaxy S devices they got some recognition and after the S3 when they got the spotlight. If you want to give water resistance and dust resistance to a company then you might as well say a gyroscope feature can also be stolen along with putting a mesh over the speaker. Samsung would not be the one to get credit for water resistance or dust resistance it would be Sony.

      • jOn Garrett

        2 things I hate about apple fans.

        1. You have an excuse for everything
        2. You think apple created everything and everybody else just follows along.

        Apple copies more than any other company and they have more blind flowers who gladly give them credit for anything.

        You guys give Apple ownership of shapes and colors but another company can’t have ownership over a way of sealing out water and dust?

        Everything “new” in iOS 7 – current version is ALL copied from Android and Android OEM’s

        Next year’s iPhone will have all the features of last year’s Galaxy and everything you called a gimmick 2 years prior will suddenly become magical.

      • Rowan09

        Excuse for everything like what? You’re trying to make excuses for Samsung with something they have no excuse for and trying to compare it to an issue that’s not about safety at all. No one here ever say Apple created, we always say Apple refines. It’s a fact that Apple start the virtual assistant field and now everyone is doing the same, they made fingerprint sensors on phones popular, etc. Apple took some ideas from the jailbreak community and Android, but Android also took some ideas from IOS as well. I only say wireless charging on the S7 is a gimmick because it solves nothing just like eye scroll was the next best thing. Apple needs some form of wireless charging because they only have 1 port, so when someone needs to charge and listen to music they can. If the S8 is rumored to get rid of the charging port the same applies and it makes wireless charging now not a gimmick because it solves a problem. I own both an iPhone 7 plus and S7 Edge by the way, so I can tell you the benefits of each, but prefer IOS overall especially since sideloading became possible. What special way does Samsung seal out water and dust that Apple stole? From every test I’ve seen the iPhone 7 beats the Samsung devices in water resistance tests and it’s not suppose to.

    Let’s not forget that Samsung is clearly not only copying Apple based on their finished products, but heavily on Apple’s patent filings and iPhone rumors. Why do you think Galaxy Edge exists?, Apple iPhone rumors which were stating that Apple is working on curved display around the edges. What did Samsung do, try to beat them to the market. Of course, testing and protecting consumers always took a backseat as we’ve seen with battery issues. Same thing will happen with touch ID behind the screen, camera behind the screen etc. Nothing new. They will stay who they always were. And people that are not bothered by this will keep buying them. People that care will not.

      This is a stretch. As someone who enjoys both company’s offerings, I have to call out your BS here. Samsung has had an edge version of their phones for quite some time. The note 7 (insert overdone exploding joke here), s7 edge, s6 edge plus, and the note edge. They introduced prototypes of curved smartphone displays years ago. Add the amount of time R&D takes before that and your comment looks less plausible. (Just so you know I am typing this on my iPhone 7 plus right now.) I like this blog for updates about Apple features and such, but the catty articles and comment sections sicken me. It’s akin to listening to Hillary vs Trump topics. We get it half the country likes Apple and the other half likes Trump.

    Look at the pot calling the kettle black. Smh

    I love my 7Plus. And if i have a grenade in my hands i would like to know when it will explode LOL

  • Bugs Bunnay

    oh I am so looking forward to this and the discussion this will bring about.

    • Rowan09

      Me too should be interesting.

  • Cones1r

    Really, would’ve never seen that coming?!

  • Sammy so innovative. Lol. I hope Sammy just do their own thing & fook Apple. Look at note7, haste makes waste. Looks like Sammy needs another expensive (& exploding) lesson. I think Sammy is the biggest iSheep & the irony is, they don’t know they are.

      It wasn’t hasty you clown, it was released at about the same time as others. The thin design is what caused the problem.

      What’s Apple excuse for their bad battery and displays? The iPhone has 2 flaws the Note had 1. Samsung did a recall, Apple said it was your fault.

      • Jon calm down first & stop crying ok? Be civilized and stop with the name calling. Obviously you got no balls to post your ugly face on your profile pic along with your ugly name. You know nothing jon. You’re pathetic.

        Bad displays and batteries? Apple is replacing those bad displays which is rumored for devices dropped and batteries which are not exploding. Samsung released defective phones on purpose and then lied about them being fixed and was forced to do a recall. They didn’t do anything of integrity, so stop trying to make it seem as if they did it out of the kindness of their hearts.

      • jOn Garrett

        Rumored? Who besides apple says it’s from people dropping their phones? Everytime there’s a problem with an iPhone Apple blames the user.

        People who are knowledgeable about phones, like those ifix it people–have all said it’s a design flaw, not from being dropped.

        Samsung batteries are not exploding either but that’s what iDoits like to say–Samsung’s battery problem wasn’t even a battery problem. It was from the phone being too thin causing compression on the battery.

        You’re entirely stupid if you think a company, any company would knowingly risk their brand, reputation and billions of dollars for absolutely no reason at all.

        Tell me what was there to gain by doing that? Even for an iPhone fan you can’t be that stupid.

        What is the design flaw and how many phones are affected? Regardless Apple is replacing people’s device that’s affected so I’m not sure if your issue. Now in regards to Samsung with the Note 7 what was the issue? Please tell me because Samsung was suppose to make it public and still didn’t. What I remember was after the first couple of incidents Samsung got a company to do an investigation on what was causing the batteries to overheat and explode and the results said it wasn’t only the battery but something else. What did Samsung do they said send back your bad Note 7 for the fixed version. Guess what happened after, those versions weren’t fixed either causing them to have no choice than do a recall due to safety. Before the recall I work in the airport and their phones were banned and announced before every flight. By the way fix all types of phones and even owned my own repair store in NJ until I got out of the business. I still however fix phones, laptops, etc so I know a thing or two about them. The phone being too thin? Dude try again man.

        What design flaw? Did you seriously just ask me that? From spontaneous bending to dead screen and now bursting batteries, those flaws–well known flaws that you can simply Google up or, 2 what I do and get your info from the best source there is…… Apple’s own support forums! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8d00d6ba8b2a644bcaafefbf7b25e155b064cf0a944b97fc6d0b4493c62ef9d9.png

        Apple is replacing some phones not all. And only because of the heat they’re feeling–like back when they released the faulty iPhone 4.

        They’re charging $150 for the display, they’re not doing anything for free.

        How many phones were effected? Who cares how many. 35 Note phones out of 2.5 million and Samsung pulled them all. People liked them so much they refused to give them up, Samsung issued updates to force them and still people refused to give them up.

        Apple got sued over touch disease, their response–blame the user, like with the iPhone 4 because you were holding it wrong.

        Lies after lies. The Note 7 is a thicker phone at 7.9mm than the S7 which is 7.7mm. Samsung wanted to 1up Apple and was reckless that’s all to it. Every company release devices with issues and hope it’s not as big a issue.

  • This really sad , companies are copying each other

    • Rowan09

      That’s fine but not when one company make sure fun of another and does the same thing months after and I’m sure they already have a S8 prototype while they were making fun with the Note 7 having a headphone jack.
