Battery: The non-removable 3000mAh battery is the same as S7 but S8 uses heavier hardware and it has got a big screen and so, it consumes more battery. You might need to charge your phone too often and it's a letdown.
We can also mention the 18.5:9 aspect ratio as one of the S8 features which might let us down. It is a little bit strange and might cause some troubles with the size of some videos.
