The Galaxy S9 has a better camera and stereo speakers, but costs a good deal more.

Shadow Snypa786, 15 Mar 2018On GSMARENA the S8 has the better battery life, plus S8 has... moreI agree for camera and display but the rest depend of the user...
Me for example, I don't care about
MicroSD slot: I bought a 64 GB MicroSDXC for my S7 Edge 32 GB and I barely use it, the OnePlus has 128 GB so I won't need a MicroSD and I'm not the kind of person who remove MicroSD card everyday to put in other phones.

USB 3.1: when I connect my phone to my PC, I plug it in random USB port, I don't check if it's USB 2.0 or 3.0, and my motherboard doesn't even have 3.1
OnePlus's charge is pretty fast for a USB 2.0, isn't it?

Exynos CPU: I prefer Snapdragon, my Exynos S7 Edge sucks in emulators, even the PSP one is slow as f*ck
I had another phone with a Snapdragon 801 and it was running it better than this Exynos 8890 which is in the same era as the Snapdragon 820, so wtf???
I saw some videos from MWC, the Exynos S9 also sucks in emulators, I'll wait for the real release to confirm this.
Then check the GFX offscreen FPS, it's lower than the Sony Xperia XZ2 with a Snapdragon 845

So, bye Exynos, I would rather have a Snapdragon S7 Edge...

Quite slower, almost half the battery life, no multitasking to speak off. It probably has a better camera and slightly better screen and that's it. Honestly, S8 failed in so mnay major categories, no wonder it's the worst selling S phone since S1.

Now it's a good time picking up a S8. Good pricing, way cheaper than a oneplus 5T
