Had S4 and S6, just ordered S8 yesterday. Neither, I am fanboy or something, just happened when I was choosing my smartphones, their there best at the time and since s6 really loved GEARVR, not even going to mention AMOLED, it just no way anyone can even come close to AMOLED quality. From my long experience with Android phones, I can tell, that usually people having problems with phones, who doesn't know shit about them and later blaming anyone but themselves, because they don't understand technology and software itself and doing some stupid things with their phones, which causes troubles. Some real software flaws ussualy are solved by updates, same happen hundred times with iPhone launches, when iOS was just buggy, same happens with Android, so just give time, patches will fix it and stop spreading panic, never had any issues with my Samsung phones
Man of War - Bang on about Samsung problems , i have an Xiaomi , 3 Samsung's incl. S6 Edge , Grand 2 , Sony Xperia & even Oppo.
The Samsung software are the worst , Grand 2 was updated from 4.3 to 4.4 ( 2 year ago ) & then blue screen , random start up , mobile software Hangs all started playing up , i was so so fed up with laggy touchwiz that i decided to never by Samsung , still for call quality & being a brand i went with samsung , & now even my S6 Edge is giving ramdom app crashes & some small lags here and there ( manageable ) in comparison i find chinese software UI Much more stable even colour OS (Oppo) with it Faults never lags even after 9 months of usage , that too heavy usage , even Xiaomi does not hang after 2 years ( Old 1 gb ram model ) still its as fluid as S6 Edge. Sony Xperia has best IPS LCD Display , samsung is behind in LCD tech , & thanks to reviews of OLED Burn in & red tint of S8 now feeling scared of sAMOLED.
I guess Sharp needs to buck up their Aquos phone range... Sony is gaining pace and despite a hell lot of criticism like bezel etc their fanbase are always there still upgrading to another Sony... Panasonic seems lost in transition...
And here in Asia, Oppo XiaoMi Vivo Huawei ZTE are gaining ground so fast they have become extremely common aside Apple Samsung smartphones...
Samsung..? The hype only lasts for as long before an issue pops up... LG seems to be the gem nobody speaks off...
Samsung's new advertisement
"enjoy s8, the world's leading red display, see everything in pure red with us, tired of hangs? don't worry, new auto restart feature developed by best engineers insures that your phone will be restarted couple of times a day, no lag no problem always fresh, just 1000 dollars, we're waiting for your money"
viveksubhash, 29 Apr 2017actually the random restarts might be only thing that can be defended..every phone makes resta... moreSorry but had the Note 5 been available in Europe I might be able to answer your question. As a result of that and the Note 7 debacle I am stuck withe Note 4 currently.
Zoom, 29 Apr 2017Tell that to my bent xperia xaI assume that u did not take care of ur phone properly or u didn't have a case on thats why. Lol

Maverick, 29 Apr 2017I have an iphone 7 running on ios10. It also restarts and stops responding. I'm just running m... moreits either you are lying or defective... simply go to apple store, simply isnt it?
What about the people who did not install "shitty weaher apps" with new devices!
Here are the issues for Samsung, continue as we have foreseen. Woe and bitter to them. The lack of specialty staff in the production department is obvious. So, when you want to maximize profits, you hire people who are poorly trained professionally and technically because smartphone professionals will never accept technical "compromises" with the management team. I'm waiting for the moment, as I said before, the entry into the INSOLVENCY of Samsung's smartphone production department in 1-2 years. The clock ticks ....:)
i had random restarts on my s7 edge, uninstalled some shitty weaher apps and the problem is gone over 1 month no restarts.
Samsung, you have the license to do whatever you like to do. So keep us screwing and we are happy to oblige.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017Really ? Sony tv's are not that good and most of the Xperia phones at work are always at the s... moreActually, Sony TV can show Netflix through vpn. Samsung can't, unless you use vpn on the router and that makes Netflix unable to work if you are in a vpn blocked country. Sony TV also doesn't install or delete apps by themselves, like Samsung does.
