It's a simple concept.
Companies higher storage prices are a rip off. Over the years you can take the storage with you. Increasing the savings significantly.
Hardware has not improved much in reality in the last 3 years.
It's mostly in the benchmarks.
Bigger screen with smaller bezels is great though.
S7 was a step back in most conditions with only a small improvement in low light. S8 has come back to basically par plus a little in most conditions and improved low light slightly more.
It's not that big of a difference from Samsung a few years ago or between the main flagships of the last 2 years.
Front fingerprint reader is more convenient than rear. Simple fact.
You can't unlock on a desk, in a mount, etc.
Under screen or very good face/eye would be best.
There are still phones with front like Mate 10 which has tiny bezels or side like on Sony.
3400ish battery is just average. Most flagships with the same screen size are about the same.
Screen on time hasn't improved much in the last few years. Comparing screen size to screen size.
Two front facing speakers that are about the same as a very good single mono is really missing the point.
They botched this if that's the best they can do with two big speakers.
Headphone jack has better audio quality by far than Bluetooth. It gives you more options. It takes very little space regardless of what the marketing departments try to brainwash you with.
There is no reasonable replacement let alone a better replacement at this time or in the next 10+ years.
