I'm spoilt for choice this year with Galaxy S8+ Note8 and LgV30 all available this year. I will wait till September/October before getting a dual SIM version

A normal phone is of no use to most of the population as phones are more than just making calls and txting. I remeber a few years ago I got a basic phone and thats all it was, i thought I would be ok with it but you actually need the sat nav and all the other crap that comes with modern phunes plus I usually read the paper on my phone at work now.

My new Samsung S8 plus is very good. I bought a Hong Kong version with dual Sims or one sim and extra SD card.
My phone is the upgraded version with 6gb or ram and 128gb standard internal ram+my SD card. The display is fantastic, crisp, super bright, superb quick camera. Plenty of volume from speaker. Lighting quick and lasts a complete day with decent usage and 20% battery left often. I see the note 8 will have same specifications plus a pen so I feel I've got a good one

That's pretty harsh considering that the s7 edge was rated as the best camera last year and the S8 has improved image stabilisation low light and detail compared to the S7. So I would say the camera is outstanding. As with anything next model has improved so dual lenses is a step forward.

Have to say, utterly amazed with my brother's latest iphone 'come to life pictures'. Presume Samsung does the same ?

Was like something from a sci-fi film. Amazing

I'm sure Samsung can do something 'similar' but I doubt it will be as well supported by Facebook and the like.

They do motion photos, don't use it. Google photos allows use of these short video clips. Facebook isn't truly compatible, even apple can only share with apple devices.

It's always been the case that apple users are constantly taking photos of themselves

It is true that Apple invented the selfie, without them you'd be looking at buttons and not your pretty faces.
