    Hmmm :(:(. I love my V20 by wow it looks so good. Must resist. The only thing I don't like is those 3 icons. Not really seeing a whole lot of other reasons not to buy it!

    Preordered my S8+ today. Looked like a good move coming from many years of Moto.

    Waiting for reviews after it launches before deciding. Choices include getting S8, G6, or sticking with G4 (hopefully it won't bootloop again though).

    Been hearing good things about S8 battery life, supposed to be as good as S7 edge.

    I just pre-ordered two of the S8 for the wife and I. Sprint/Samsung has the pre-order deal right now to get a free VR headset with controller so we didn't pass up the opportunity to get two of them. Ours should ship on the 21st. I purchased one of the S6s we have to keep as a back-up just in case anything happens. Plus with the S6 getting Nougat soon I don't see a reason to not keep at least one for the kids to play on or use later.

    If I could afford to get a new phone, it would be the S8 in Orchid Gray.

    I got the S8 plus on Friday! The phone is great! Glad I got it! Two things that I did not read on the various reviews. First, I definitely could see the issue pushing on the camera lens instead of the fingerprint reader. However, that is without a case. As soon as I put the case on the phone that issue went away. I can find the fingerprint reader without looking at the back of the phone. Second, the phone uses USB-C. No more looking at the tip to see which way the plug needs to be oriented as the USB-C plugs in either way. Here are some additional things. The camera is awesome and the screen is big enough I actually like using the stock keyboard (had been using Swype). The iris unlock feature is neat but doesn't work all that well outside. The signal reception seems to be much better than that of my Note 5.

    I've seen some great reviews on YouTube.... definitely a good looking device BUT after the Note 7 drama I'm going to sit back and see how Sammy does.

    I want the S8, I think the physical screen on the S8+ is to large. I absolutely love the new design, but it makes me want to wait for the Note 8. Hoping for an under screen finger print scanner. I HATE the placement of the finger print scanner on the S8/S8+

    I was seriously thinking of getting the S8 but I had a Note 5 and the screen on the S8 was too small for me so I went with the S8 plus. Actually overall smaller than my Note. Easier to hold and a GREAT screen!

    Finally placed my order for the Orchid Gray S8 yesterday. Here's hoping I don't get the red tint, because that will annoy the heck out of me lol
