Has anyone played blitz on this phone. I'll be upgrading soon and this phone is on my list of possibilities. However, the curved screen and the shape of the screen (very long, almost a letter box shape) has me wondering how the game will display or control on the phone. I like big screens on phones as I'm used to the Note series from Samsung.

if the curve of the screen gets in the way, just flip the phone over so the curve is at the top lol

Curved screen isn't a problem at all, it's much less curved than the S7 Edge. The game doesn't take up the whole screen, the sides are black. Otherwise the game runs perfectly fine, 60 fps.

The aspect ratio of the screen doen's matter, the UI will fix itself to it (like on windowed mode on Mac) and if the curves are annoying you can always customize your controls and move them away from the bottom.

Have you held the phone? I hated it enough to stick with my old phone. The curves on both long edges and the "tall" factor were not features I thought I could get used to. As for Blitz, there is information that this aspect ratio is becoming more common, but some apps may letterbox until it is worked out. I cannot say how this will work on Blitz now or in the future, but I wouldn't expect big issues. I'd focus on if the phone is right for you and think of Blitz second.

My boss just got the S8+ for his work phone. And yes, it seemed a bit odd to since its so long. Also, how the heck would a case for this work? Would it not cover the curved edges? I like playing with a case on as it adds better grip and increases the size a bit for my big hands.

If you have any sort of overhead lighting, the glare on the curved edges will be horrendously bad. I ended up returning mine (not just because of that)

Dang! Yah, I'd hate that. Not much else to choose from unfortunately. I don't like iphones, so really the only other phone would be the LG, but it seems a bit lacking in processing power compared to the S8

I ended up going with an iPhone this time. I tend to prefer Android but there just wasnt anything I really liked this year. LG and their bootloop issues terrify me. If the Pixel 2 has better hardware than this year's, then I'll definitely be back

^ yeah, I hear ya. I'll have to think about it. iCrap makes me cringe. Not that they're bad products, but the iOS and it proprietary nature make old PC techs like myself angry and confused. Lol.  I wish Samsung would just keep things simple and stop with the fancy schmansy wing dings. I loved the Note series but after the flaming Note7, I guess they had to drop the line.

I also have to have a case on my phone. Initially I figured I could modify the cases available and come up with something that had lips at the top and bottom and work from there.

 

A friend of a friend who is usually on top of tech stuff says Samsung did not lower the price of the S7 because they want to maintain profit on people that don't want the curves. He says September could be when the price for the S7 drops, which is disheartening. There are not many good options for higher end phones right now as the Pixel is sold out, the S8 is weird, and I don't like many of the other manufacturers. My wife runs iOS phone/tablets and I hate them so I'm waiting it out.

Yes, but a little overpriced in my opinion. I went back and forth on Pixel XL vs iPhone 7 Plus. I just cant bring myself to buy first generation anything. The second gen in a few months should be awesome

My new s8+ isn't syncing well with my new laptop . I Windows 10. I hate blue soothing with my hand controller. Like keyboard and mouse. Far better with that set up. Any advise.  Frustrated stats suck with the controller hard to pin point target with it, not like the mouse way easier and faster. Any advise.
