So folks, you gain a tremendous 80+% performance gain going from the SD 835 to SD 855 (S8 to S10). The jump from 845 to 855 is 20% to 25%, still significant.

God bless.
You do know that looking at ONE are of one benchmark rarely gives a good idea of performance?

You do realize that CPU performance is FAR from the only element of a phone that affects user experience?

An 80% increase in CPU performance does NOT translate into anything nearing that number in real life performance.

Buddy, not to defeat your point, but we know this, and Antutu has tried to replicate more real world performance in their benchmarks over the past few years. They're still synthetic, but they're the benchmark of benchmarks for many folks. Finally, this isn't just CPU scores, the second graph has CPU, GPU, UX, and Memory.

Folks love to complain sometimes.

Looks like Rogers Rep was right! If it has not been shipped by now, its safe to say it wont be ready for pickup tomorrow (my friend is position 11 and I am 75, still open on both).
Looks like majority of people on all networks that pre-ordered anything except Black are on the same boat.

interesting, majority (from the very few who actually got it) of those who got it in White seem to be on Fido!

I hope so. Will be picking up at the Yorkdale location.

The rep actually told me the opposite. Told me that the appointments were for phone data transfers and that if you didn't need that service, showing up just to pickup the pre-order would be quicker..

Interesting - thinking back the rep may have asked me what phone I was coming from (Samsung S6) right before asking to book the appointment so that could be true. In any event I don't need that service so I'll just join the shorter line when I get there lol.

I have always used spigen thin fit on all my Samsung s series. It doesn't add any bulk to the phone as some of the cases make the phone feel more wider esp the plus series.
And it's usually around $15.

I'm a big fan of the Spigen Liquid Air. I've had one on my S10+ for a few days and you barely notice it's on the phone plus you can see the attractive white colour.
