Will these leaked Galaxy S8 and S8+ promo images make you mash the "Buy" button?

At this point, we aren't sure whether it is really leakers or actually Samsung offloading all that Galaxy S8 leaked material onto the internet. But hey, it's free advertising!

Oh look the first S8 images were leaked to the internet before the first images of the G6 appeared, so we could say LG did copy Samsung or what?

No we can't as it takes a long time till a company comes up with a design. But it's obvious that either both south korean companies have some sort of caloboration going on or have internal leaks to the other company or vise versa.

My guess is both companies work/research together to some extend to better defend themselves against the chinese companies, which copy and steal everything but can produce at a lower price.

What? The G6 is ugly compared to this and to me both phones don't look all that great.

Nope, not until I see what reviewers will say about the palm rejection technology.
If they fixed it then yes, if not, then it's definitely the G6 for me.

Note 7 fixed palm rejection as well as the update to the 7.0 on the s7 edge or so i've heard. Don't own a s7 so I'm not sure. Im sure it will be good cause the note7 has about the same degree of curve on the screen and it has palm rejection.

I can confirm that I never had any issues with the Note 7.
As far as the Galaxy S7 Edge, it got better with updates, but it was always a nightmare using the phone with one hand and without a case, because a case used to always do the trick for me.

Yeap I know, you can have all fingers on the edges of the Note7 and use the phone just fine.

I just tested the palm rejection on my s7 edge and it worked fine with me holding both edges... I was able to open apps interact with web pages etc... Until you said something I really never payed attention to it until now... I guess it's been working the way it should have been all along...

I can wholeheartedly agree with that bro. That's the main reason my S7 Edge never really comes out of its case. One handed operation is terrible. That's why I love that the iPhone has some side bezel, one handed operation is lovely on it.

I'm waiting for the Note 8 Galaxy wise.

I never noticed any palm rejection issues on any of the edge models.

I think you clearly are as in Steve Jobs words, "using it wrong" or "holding it wrong", "or don't hold it that way".

There wasn't any palm rejection issue. He just doesn't know how to hold the phone.

There si nothign wrong with the phone dude. It wasn't even an issue on the s6 edge. He just doesn't know how to hold a phone. Its that simple.

I had both the S6 edge and edge+ and we have an s7 edge and I have my Note 7 and none have ever been an issue with palm rejection.

You can tell when someone is their own problem. Especially when almost no one else has the same problem.

He simply should learn how to use an edge phone. I use them all without a case, until I travel.

The source also mentions that the S8+ could come with 128GB. That would make up for the price imo.

Hmmm, that looks tempting. I already committed to the G6 but I might have to buy both and sell the loser.

Gotta see what the Note 8 brings. Running out of time and slapping a finger print scanner in a odd place at the last minute doesn't sound cool. Should be plenty of time to get the Note 8 right.

Don't jank it up Samsung.
