Tbh the Mate 9 Pro is the only phone I wld get over OP3T if the prices were similar. Huawei has matured into a big player and is now making proper flagship devices. It's certainly better than S7 at the moment.

Goku, 24 Jan 2017Lol no one will buy the phone except reviewersso true

There is a black pearl Edition with 128 GB internal memory.I like the features of touchwiz but you are correct.It can be painfully slow sometimes.Metal body.........Well you changed my mind.Im gonna buy a huawei mate 9 pro

Xz8441, 25 Jan 2017Lol maybe that's why... Sony always release their flagships late... moreYou are wrong, Sony is not late, Sony optimize the overall and perform the QC to ensure the quality, they don't like Samsung, Samsung just skip the Flagship's (Note 7) QC to become a Flagship's Fiasco.

No question about it.

tonymancs, 24 Jan 2017It's not that MS want to. WP failed so miserably so they have to... moreThat is likely the case. Maybe the best Exynos still in the pipeline and won't make it for S8. Maybe for S9.

AnonD-121494, 24 Jan 2017That's not actually true, though you are partially right. The Sa... moreI'm not talking about raw power performance though. The point still stand. Performance vs modem vs power consumption, Qualcomm still held the title. :)

ProJames, 24 Jan 2017Well, don't forget it is a rumor too, and that Qualcomm would ma... moreYah maybe. Hope Nvidia does do something like that hehe.

AnonD-491921, 25 Jan 2017Maybe but they are not that widespread for that to be profitableWhat I say is that right now there is a huge opportunity for other chip makers. No smart OEM will deliver their next 2017 flagship with a 821. That's just dumb. And the 835 were all bought by Samsung (allegedly). What's left? No OEM will make flagships with a MediaTek for developped markets and at a premium price. Intel is slow at deliver drivers. Texas Instruments has stopped the chip manufacturing. You either get the Exynos 8895, NVIDIA's newest chip or a new company gets in (but that's really unlikely).

AnonD-491921, 25 Jan 2017But what will you buy if Galaxy S7E(Coral Blue) costs less than ... moreI would still buy the OP3T without hesitation for a number reasons.
1) I prefer metal phones to the fragile glass ones any day.
2) I prefer the Oxygen os over Touchwiz cos it's clean and gives a lot more freedom.
3) Performance of OP3T is in every way better and Samsung devices slows down a lot after a year or two which doesn't happen with OP devices (I know cos my father has a Note 4 and my cousin had Op1)
4) The fingerprint scanner is faster.
5) Profile switcher key. U may not think it's much but, once u get used to it u won't be able to live without it. Certainly I can't.
6) Perhaps the biggest of all DASH Charging. It's just blazing fast. Totally changes how u use a smartphone. Cos it can go from the battery range of around 20% to 90% in a matter of 30mins.


Now I do know S7 has its advantages with better rear cam and waterproofing but that's it.
For me a 2k is screen is overkill on a 5.5 inch display cos I don't use it for VR and although I wld have a preferred a micro SD slot, dual Sim is more important to me. S7E has only a hybrid slot so I need to choose between SD or a 2nd Sim which beats the purpose...
But yeah this is just my view.
