S8's wireless charging based on Qualcomm quick charge 2.0
Consequently, it is reportedly slower than LG g6 a, Google pixel and some Chinese phones in "charging speed"
Qualcommhas launched even quick charge 4.0
Samsung doesn't't make features BUT makes talking point only for promotion and in showrooms

But before that, please check the settings. I believe I have seen an option where it said something like TURN OFF THE SOUND EVEN IF THE RINGER IS ON or something. I didn't think that was helpful, so I kept it off. I searched, but can't find it now.
And if your phone restarts as well, you definitely should go for claiming warranty. Devices should NOT restart in any case. BTW, did you Sync your data from the previous device(s)? I heard before that this might be the case. So I didn't Sync anything, instead I copied the backup of the contacts only and installed everything else fresh from the scratch. If you can, do a factory reset and just copy the contacts only and see if the phone restarts or not.
If nothing improves, please go for warranty as soon as possible.
Wish you all the best. Take care. Ciao...
my device is heating up whil using the camera under bright sunlight with full brightness or in normal condition. is anyone having this issue ?

Anonymous, 18 May 2017Don't just call other ifans. What if other called you Sammy fanboy.Every one has their own opinion.If I go to iPhone or LG or Motorola or ANY OTHER phones' user review room and start brag about Samsung, THEN YOU SURE HAVE THE RIGHT to call me a Sammy fanboy. Do you see me doing that? Nope. So you can't.
This is Samsungs S8's user review page and people are bragging here how good iPhone are. Who wanted to hear about iPhone here? Yes, absolutely right, NO ONE. If you don't like S8 or think it is a phone which is gonna waste your time, then why are you wasting your time over here?
People come here to know more about the phone - it's pros and cons. I am using the phone for almost 2 weeks now & I can tell you, this is a phone unlike previous Galaxy S series. Mine never lagged, never made me wait. Only I have to charge it twice a day. And that is what everyone wants to hear - true and honest opinion. Not some bu||$|-|!t from people who never put their hands on the phone in their life.
So please, feel free to call me a Sammy Fanboy if I go and disturb other in their forum. As I'm not but they are, I have all the rights to call them iFans.
Take care. Ciao...
Stan, 20 May 2017I don't know if I should buy this phone. It looks good and everything inside is so great. But ... moreHere are some differences between the two. I may have left something out though
Samsung Galaxy S8:
Large screen with a smaller form factor,
Micro SD will allow you to expand storage
Fast Charging USB-C
Always on Display
Edge to edge screen
IP68 Water Resistance - 1.5 Metres for 30 Mins
1440p OLED Screen
Android is open and will allow you to customize your phone
Performance is very close to the iPhone now
May begin to slow down after a year of use
Fingerprint Sensor in a horrible place
Software Updates will arrive some time after the official releases.
iPhone 7 Plus:
Dual Camera and Portrait Mode
iOS is much more secure when compared to Android
Works well with other Apple products
1080p LCD Screen
Apple Pay for NFC payments
IP67 Water Resistance - 1 metre 30 Minutes
Large number of Apps available for download
When an iOS update is released you do not have to wait for it to be available
No headphone jack. Many different types of wireless headphones are available not just the Airpods
You cannot expand storage on the iPhone
Both are great phones and no matter which you choose I think you will be satisfied.
I don't know if I should buy this phone. It looks good and everything inside is so great. But I don't know whether it's better than iPhone 7 plus or not.
So wats ur opinion guys..?
Samsung S8 or iPhone 7 plus ????? Help!!

Anonymous, 20 May 2017Looks like a remote control. I hate the design of this phone.I thought I'm the only one who see the s8 as a remote.
I've had my S8 for about a week now and I love it. Gorgeous screen, long lasting battery, fast processors. Charges quickly, doesn't get very hot. Bought a cheap case for it and surprisingly it helps locate the fingerprint scanner easier. Amazing camera with many different options. I would definitely recommend this product.
ByX44, 20 May 2017Wow it looks sh*te, S7E is still the best looking sam.I like that: harmony v2.0 looks very better than this thing S8 lol
Anonymous, 20 May 2017Looks like a remote control. I hate the design of this phone.About %8 agree with u
Anonymous, 20 May 2017Looks like a remote control. I hate the design of this phone.Yeah
It is because the silly ratio of S8
This silly ratio make S8 taller narrower and thicker
*S8 has the same width to 5-in her SONY XA1......
So it is a taller version of 5_inch phones
Wrong-placing fingerprint show the samsung design team's dump talents

The only time it heated up when phone was being updated to fix the red tint issue which happens in every phone during the update installation.
Just got this phone a couple of days and I'm having overheating issue even if the apps I only use are Facebook and Messenger with nothing else running in the background and goes twice hotter when video calling.
Already contacted Samsung and they said it was normal and it'll lower down by itself. If the issue still persists next week guess I'm gonna get a full refund and not recommend Samsung phones to my fellow workers or buddies.
