Slow charging but Draining vastly
Service centre worst. Not able to resolved.
Escalated the matter to higher one but still under observation.

In fact the phone had got that wet, the water ingress sticker turned to pulp and fell off. Still worked fine. Got a battery ruined by water once, just replaced it - all good.
Wished the Note 4 was waterproof but you can't have everything
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2017No it doesn't.It does. In a dark room, not pitch black but illuminated by a TV for example, works fine.
I can confirm because I own one and have tried it.
Haven't bothered using the face unlock yet though

IP67 in S5 is much fragile, maybe you're the lucky one and I'm the unlucky one, but do you know how much fragile IP67 is? Do you know what happen to iPhone 7 if it gets drowning for an hour? Compared to S7? That's why Samsung switch to IP68 for more better resistance.

I've been using the Note8 for about 3 weeks now, no burn-ins. The Super AMOLED on this is so bright I have to keep it at 30% level that's enough for decent reading.
Middle East or Far east anywhere Blue color available, No I suppose! Black ad nd Grey plentiful. Actually what is traded price, under 800$ is all over. Shocking within weeks prices slashed to historic lows. One way it's good for us, but all non warranty ones. It's psychological only, piece of slip warranty is third party, never replaced unless numbers given by Samsung available. Then water damage is routine excuse. Be aware!
Note 8 Amoled screen is prone to screen burn in. If you're planning to keep the phone for years, better choose a phone with an IPS panel.

Ever read the news of a lady listening to the wired headphone while charging her phone? Safety is one reason why they integrate the headphone jack to the USB charging port. To avoid the use of headset while the phone is charging.
Stay safe everybody, don't use wired headset while charging your phone. Wireless Bluetooth headset is safe in everyway.

I owned S5 for two years and submerge it in water many times but it still works fine.
So don't tell lies cause you are caught.
IP67 is even lower than IP68, why do they need to join the party of non-removable battery.
That is not the reason!
They also joined the glass back party.
They joined the hybrid dual SIM party.
They joined the fingerprint sensor located on the back party.
Sooner or later they will join the removal of 3.5mm jack party.
Rejoice now! Welcome to the party! LOL!

Try put the S5 in a water and it can't lasts even for a minutes. I'm former of S5 users and I was once put it on river and it dead. That's why Samsung used IP68 instead of IP67. But IP68, it needs to fully sealed the back panel. Educate yourself!

Alre... moreSuch rubbish! Bluetooth earpieces have lower volume output than wired. You can even plug in a DAC amplifier via the headphone jack for Hi-Fi audio playback. You can use wireless if you want. When my BT earphones are charging, the headphone jack is a great alternative. I also charge via my USB-C port while listening to music.
F*** Apple for giving the BS using "courage" to sell AirPods. By the way, Mate 10 you want has a headphone jack. So just stop your rubbish talk.

Already tried wired headset and Bluetooth headset of the same brand and it comes out that Bluetooth headset aside from being convenient has better sound quality.
Hence since then, I stopped using wired headset that tangles and sometimes get caught with the nearby protruding stationary objects.

Samsung may have some confused fluctuations of features removed and put back (Note.5 was the worse with no memory expansion), but Note8 has the best iteration of the S Pen after experiencing past Note series, including their tablets.
If it doesn't have this active digitizer pen, there's no point of the Note series - it will be just an ordinary smartphone like the S series. The masses will be satisfied with the S series.
Other than functions of navigations, picking, annotating images and precision pointing and outlining, reviewers out there are missing some points about the S Pen than making grocery lists as they keep showing.
*Drawing/Painting - ArtRage or Sketchbook surprisingly can replicate close* to real paper or canvas. ArtRage especially has pencil tilt input than just pressure input (real big deal), and simulates clumps of squeezed oil paint and renders 3D shadows of them - yeah, you can shape them with a palette knife and mix multiple pigments.
*For thinking Critically/Creatively - Samsung Notes, OneNote, EverNote are prime examples of virtual notebooks that can be across platforms. Write, doodle, diagramming, picturing what's coming out of your mind are things you do to solve problems and find solutions. Multi-split screen functions are helpful when you're taking notes while you're browsing for information. Consciously doing so with a pen makes you retain the information better than screenshots, as you're actively filtering information and making note of what's important.
*Communication/Collaboration - as designer, I communicate with fellow designers by live sketching while conversing. Projected onto a projector or a 65" TV, you engage an audience. I turn on Do Not Disturb mode for muting notifications (you'd still get them in the background) to prevent pop outs of notifications, sends out texts to callers that you'd call back, and only let in certain contact numbers if they persists. I still get surprised reactions whenever I cast demonstrate how to draw or discuss about designing buildings.
*Air Command functions - yeah, they do cover these, but these are only with a Galaxy Note using the S Pen. Hovering to Glance (referencing an image that can be called to engage), Translate foreign language text paragraphs, and popouts to take peaks of message or email contents are very useful tools.
The specs of the Note8 is great enough, with 6 GB RAM, excellent camera, amazing screen. Even if the next S series will pull ahead with matched or better specs, it can't compete with no S Pen that can offer the above advantages.

Simply gimmick. Only less than 5% of smartphone users do drawing with phone.
