Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge vs. Galaxy S8/S8+

Samsung’s finally taken the wraps off the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ — and naturally, we want to see how they compare to their predecessors. Right off the bat, there appears to be a couple of notable improvements, including larger displays and a faster processor.

It’s unclear whether the upgraded internals alone will make it worth the upgrade (you’ll have to wait for our full review to find out), but in the meantime, they’re the best way to judge how much of an improvement the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are. For more details on their specs, click here.

This phone is for the S5 S6 Note 7 people and the S7 people. If you have a open mind and go and actually hold the phone and play with it. It is a worthy upgrade. This is the best Samsung device ever hands down. Every rumor had this phone 100 dollars more than what it was this is a great buy.

The chart is wrong, my S7 Edge have expandable memory up to 256gb, my battery is even better, no worth of upgrading at all. maybe next generation or the Note 8…

S8 still on 4GB RAM. What’s the point…

That chart above is incorrect for the s7, no expandable memory, no dual pixel???

Pretty much part from the big screen and new CPU nothing has changed except for moving FPS and new bixby button that not many people will use

Not worth the upgrade from the S7 guys! Wait for next years one instead.

Is the table above incorrect, or has the S8 dropped NFC support?

It has Samsung Pay, so I’m sure NFC would have to be there.

So, there’s not even a single reason for me to buy one for conception or client demonstration purposes…Bye bye Samsung, if Apple does anything VR this year, sell your stocks…
