    For me, the jump from a 1.12 μm IMX298 to a properly utilised 1.4 μm IMX333 sensor would be plenty noticeable. I'd also love to get my mittens on a larger, current-gen OLED, with a high resolution for VR. On the other hand, I appreciate getting official LineageOS builds, where I can expect Android O not long after its launch. If I had an S7 Edge myself, I wouldn't have been nearly as tempted to upgrade. It's already a great phone.

    S7E does work very well in VR already, though the Gear VR has collected some dust lately after I got the Vive.

    Don't worry, the Vive dust layers will catch up with the GearVR dust coverage soon enough ;)

    We'll see. I'm still working my way through free content and haven't managed to get bored with it yet.

    Looks like a few S8 have been reported having a red stained display, So if you are buying from a country were it is hard to get a refund do thorough check before parting with your money.

    I bet none of the review models had a red tint, how can they leave the factory looking like that, are they blind or working in the dark.

    The only reason i ever buy Samsung is for the oled display.
