LOL phonearena is a big JOKE! 8.2? seriously? your cons on this phone are indeed laughable. Edge sense is more useful than that edge to edge display.

so Better Camera than s8+, Better battery performance than S8+. Better Sound Experience than S8+. Sense is much better than touchwiz. 8.2? Seriously? LOL..Edge sense is more useful than that weird aspect ratio. So this Stephen who reviewed this phone prefers the additional icon app for that additional screen than the edge sense. LOL

I'd deactivate my account if PA gave the next iPhone anything less than a 9.

IT'S REVOLUTIONARY AND INNOVATIVE! I can already see these cliche words being used in their stupid articles concerning the next iPhone.

I expected it to score a little higher. It is a device worth owning.

I expected a better rating for this phone than this... Why??

Because this is iPhonearena. No Apple logo no good score.

Be careful, I got a warning from one of the Moderators on iPhonearena that if they get their nerve touched again, I'll get a time out and have to sit in the corner of the room. This Site is so backwards.

And some of my anti-Apple fanboy comments got removed in some articles. Meanwhile my anti-Fandroid comments are untouched, and some racists trolls aren't banned yet.

probably because literally every article is littered with hate on apple.

how about the huge amount of Samsung hate on many articles? it's not like Apple is the only major OEM that has lots of haters.

Do like I do. When they email you, tell them to drop dead.

Why are the cons so subjective?

so if i remove those looks and edge sense non-sense ratings, this phone gets basically a 9.5 or something similar. see? it's better than an iphone... but it can't. so we need to add something bad to make it look worse, otherwise we're not being paid anymore by apple...

not only by Apple. but also Samsung..poor HTC... phonearena is already part of my daily life, reading tech news. .but this one disappoints me. so biased. at least they can give decent cons on this phone to justify this score. well, there's still lot of tech sites out there.lol

I'm really glad that they are other better websites out there with much larger reader base.

LOL WUT? This cons are ridiculous! The first phone to ship with active noise cancelling headphones praised by everybody, better then any inbox headhopnes, but you say its a con?! Speakers better then even One M8 but you say in the review that its not quite the same as it used to be? best camera around, best audio, nice screen, GREAT battery life, waterproof, useful and one of a kind edge sense feature, good pricing, but some minor early production imperfections and you give it LIKE 8.2?! I call YOU a Samsung or Apple bi*ch. Pathetic.

You're goddamn right.

Every other phone has the things you mentioned above plus good looks to go with it so why should they be ranked higher than other flagship phones?

This phone is best in EVERY regard (audio output, speakers, headphones with active noise cancellation that NONE has, microphones (none has 4 mics), camera, battery life) besides bezels, has unique edge sesne feature (that again none has), is priced lower then S8, much less then S8+, same as last year spec G6 but has a LOWER score.

How do you know the headphone sound better than the AKG ones that come with the S8's? Just curious!
