[deleted post]I wanne edit but time was over for editing so here the good version,sorry!
I have the s8 (pre order)and very happy but there are some negatives .The bixby button is for right handed people on a strange place.If i hold the Phone,my left thumb is directly on the B-button.So if i need to hold the Phone firm because its slips out of hand or you wanne press the on/of button then chance is big i press B-button. now there is an app to remap B-button,but button is still there and now for google.Because the button is there i saw on pictures how to install and remap google on B-button,i notice that you can press button long time before it reacts.Maybe that is good idea for Bixby itself,press B-button long time before it reacts and not if you press short like now.It was better when they design the s8 to remove B-button and put it on home so its not in the way and if you press then homebutton 3 times or longtime ,you have same effect.Maybe at samsung s9? lol...Also other thing,if i play game i get game tools virtual button besides the navigation buttons(go back or home) at bottom of s8 but when i hold it to play ,my pinky goes sometimes on the virtural button and someting opens game tools(also for left handed people),so i need to watch how i put my hand when i play so it does not react.Last,why not 2 secure inlog instead of 1...if i use for example pin to open s8 in combo with iris or face or finger then its better protected,because its easy to open with only 1 protection( besides pin or pattern or password) ,only finger print or iris or face inlog is not that safe ,just hold it in front of iris or face,of the owner or use fingerprint and it opens ..Strange example now: if someone steals youre s8 because you get mugged ,the criminal just have to hold it before your face ,iris or use fingerprint when you are down on ground knocked out and open the s8,..also i think..criminal can also reset safety to use face or iris or finger if you not have pin,pass or pattern(depends on how you open s8)not sure about that,never tryed it out...So 2 is better then 1.(and i dont mean face,iris or finger combo but some of those with pin,pattern or password combo) peace!
AnonD-373654, 06 Apr 2017so what? siri is in english also..... everybody uses ittrue. but not all people are using the english variant of Siri.
Joselius, 06 Apr 2017All of a sudden everyone pretends they cant speak english and complaining Bixby only can be us... moreI do speak english. and my native language. I do prefer to use my native language. (Except for Siri in the iOS. Siri is better in english. and no. I am NOT an iSheep as I got BOTH IOS and Android) and since my native language =/= English. Bixby is not usable in my language.
Joselius, 07 Apr 2017Info eye is not google feature.Yup, i know
It's sony's feature and it basically do the same with bixby camera, identifying landmark, product, suggesting purchase, etc.
But bixby still more powerful since it's an AI while info-eye rely on database
I wonder how long will it take until being able to root the S8. From my point of view, any android flagship without root is just another restricted iphone.
No1 reason to root would be to delete ALL that bloatware they call "features".
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017The only way ya gonna get mostly what you want is no one buy the phone and they'll get the hint.Average people that don't really geeky about tech won't listen, unfortunately and just buy phone based on marketing
Joselius, 06 Apr 2017There are a few things Bixby does that Google Assistant or Apple's Siri cant. For example, you... moreEver heard of info-eye and the fact that google had a massive amount of data to feed their AI, so not only bixby but google Assistant will also grow
Well thats your opinion ...but the fact that you think a i is shitty kinda tells me you just dont know how to use them, cause they are very convienent ...and you saying its shitty confuses me considering the actual softwear for bixby hasint been released yet even on the demo.phones but who knows maybe you can see the future or something
Remapping that fingerprint scanner is more important than some gimmick assistant!!! Go home Samsung !!!
funny how MKBHD just made a video claiming that they should have implemented this feature.
Lagos, 06 Apr 2017Customers have been commenting/complaining to Samsung for YEARS to NOT put rubbish proprietary... morethere is no such thing as a perfect phone. humas will never be contented on what they have so they will always more and more. they have the rights of choice though and just simply buy other brands instead of complaining about a phone that they wont even buy.
Joselius, 06 Apr 2017All of a sudden everyone pretends they cant speak english and complaining Bixby only can be us... morei think there concern on the accent. because even if they are speaking english "Bixby" might misunderstood it for another word or simply cant understand the user
Joselius, 06 Apr 2017There are a few things Bixby does that Google Assistant or Apple's Siri cant. For example, you... moreSo true but lets hope they keep adding features...other than that we still have to see how it performs to judge it.
I hate that shitty bixby and every other personal assistant on phones I would never use that trash.so I'm happy I can re map it.nobody will use bixby I'm shocked they added a button to start it.it's dumb
No doubt Samsung wants to promote Bixby - so enjoy the remapping option ... while it lasts.
This is good news
Google Assistant gets my first vote.
Unless double tap on power button to open camera is a bit slow - opening camera would be second choice.
Lagos, 06 Apr 2017Customers have been commenting/complaining to Samsung for YEARS to NOT put rubbish proprietary... moreEven if Samsung listen to those annoying fans who demands this and that for the phone, but still consumers will not be satisfy with what they offer. People will still see flaws in every way, it's just too stupid to read those complaints yet the fact that they can't afford the "junk" (their term for Samsung phones) phone.
