The Verdict

After the huge success of the S7 Edge, clearly, the Galaxy S8 will be even better.  It is likely to be more pretty expensive, though.The S7 Edge is still a fabulous phone and with its drop price, it's now a great time to buy one and is still the best smartphone currently available on the market. So even if the new device is better looking and faster, it might not necessarily be the right choice for everyone, especially those on a budget.
