I will argue, biggest change is Apple level exynos 9810. GPU G72 with 18cores, you only need to know what it will wipe floors with any Android chipset and it can render jaw dropping graphics, it cause more excitement than any other incremental updates they did. Just price is awful and definitely not worth of this phone

"Another cameraphone innovation found on the Nokia N86 8MP is its variable aperture. It's not technically a first since the Motorola Motozine ZN5 was the pioneer here but it's still rare enough.

In layman's terms, theory says the variable aperture allows the camera to choose either the benefit of better-than-standard light sensitivity or better-than-standard sharpness throughout the whole depth of the photo.

And to use the proper terminology, Nokia N86 8MP shoots at F/2.4 to let more light in low-light conditions and to F/3.2 or F/4.8 when light conditions allow it. Technically the photos at smaller apertures (indicated by a larger F-stop value) should be sharper and with larger depth of field than photos shot by any other 8 megapixel cameraphone on the market."

See, even moto did it first. They did not reimagine anything.

Scandinavia s9 899 s9+ 999 €

The battery capacity should've been bumped to 4000 mAh and 4500 mAh respectively for the S9 and S9+, it's been three generations since the S7 & S7 Edge, the battery capacity is the same. One of the things I hate on my S7 is the battery backup I get.

The most boring launch ever. Animoji and dual camera you kidding me? After all that money spent on advertising mocking Apple? Hilarious.

Samsung is officially behind now, the Chinese manufacturers are more innovative than this.

So these are the proper S8 and S8+ with the CORRECT fp scanner placement yay! ;) Could have also added the batt capacity oh well. I'm actually just a bit bummed that there's no Note FE 2 w/ a 4000mAh battery as a follow up.

would you kindly tell me what were the options in N86? It interests me.

The mongoose M2 is clocked at 2.3 GHz, it achieves by avarage 2100 points by geekbench.
the newer M3 is clocked half a gigahertz higher, but achieves nearly the double score, 3700 points.
M2 has fairly narrow instruction pipe, M3 has (by our means atleast) has it as wide as a dual lane road. achieving better floating point preformance. and Algorithmic-logical preformance.
not to mention the new A55 core, it didn't appear in 8895.
get your eyes checked bruh.
