      Understandable, it is small indeed, but Remember, that specific unit cost 4k only. To be fair, it had more than decent specification for its price. Cherry isnt lagging behind. They are doing really well and understands the market they are treading and offers varieties to thier product lineups

    S8
    + Most are decent specs for its price
    – 2800mah battery is underwhelming (as the others pointed out)

    S8 Pro
    – For a model that’s being advertised as a “gaming phone”, its SoC can’t even compete with the other brands in its price range. For example, by just adding ?500, you can go Realme 3 which has a far better P60, a chip comparable with SD 660.

    S8 Plus
    -Same problem with its Pro co-line but much worse, you can get better phones for but the difference is they’re actually cheaper. Good example is the Redmi Note 8 Pro. You will pay less ?300 and you will get a vastly superior G90T that’s said to be water-cooled, 64MP back/20MP front cam, and 4500mah battery. The only thing that the S8 Plus here is a pop-up camera. If you hate the screen notch so much but don’t want to spend more than 13k, sure, go for this.
    However, if you’re willing to add ?2000 to your budget (?15000 is the best price/performance ratio if you change your phone every 2-3 years IMO), you can go Xiaomi 9T. It has the same pop-up camera, arguably better AMOLED screen, a SD 730 (which is also used for Samsung A80. Yes, a ?35000 phone is powered by a mid tier SoC. Typical Samsung), 48MP front/20MP back cam.

    Tl;dr: S8 is decent, S8 Pro is underpowered for a “gaming” phone, S8 plus is overpriced
