I bought the phone an year ago, been working fine so far. But the phone has recently been heating up quite a lot although it would be understandable if it had only happened during the gaming sessions. However the phones seems to warm up quite a bit even when just watching videos on youtube for a short while. Any idea if it is due to the recent updates or could be a battery issue(highly doubtful since I have been using it quite responsibly so far). Anyone else facing similar issues?
Anyone use s8+"s Exynos 8895 processor one? Any comment or problem on gaming?
Two months with this beast and it's one of the best phone I've used so far, awesome!!!
Manducazo, 17 Apr 2018Can anyone tell me if it is 100% safe to use the phone underwater?No you may drown while trying to talk on the phone.......lol
I updated and everything works very good, all sensors work. Only you have problem.
Every sensor is not working after oreo update. Even iris scanner
Can someone tell me how the loudspeaker performs, when using it in phone calls...
Does the other side complain of muffled sound...? Is ringtone loud enough ? Thanks....

Mine came with 4GB of RAM, not sure if 6GB was an option.
The screen is very nice. It's just stunning. The colors are perfect, saturated and the resolution is stunning. Every time I look at the screen, it generates a "wow" effect. It has a higher resolution than standard 2560x1440 16:9 phones. The pixel per inch ratio is very high.
It's fast. Faster than anything else I've ever seen. Reboots very fast.
Now the cons:
The 18.5:9 screen ratio is weird. I do not like it. I prefer the 16:9. Nothing in the real world scales to 18.5:9 well. While 16:9 is perfect. I don't know who thought of that stupid idea.
The non-removable battery is another serious problem. If your OEM battery fails, have to get it professionally replaced. Sending the phone back, enduring downtime. This is just downright stupid, I much preferred the Note 4 method where the OEM battery can be upgraded with an extended ZeroLemon battery.
Curved edge is another puzzling problem - it makes the screen look weird, shrinks the area and I constantly hit the icons on the side, either activating them or removing them off the screen. What is the point, pray tell? Just a minor annoyance.
And the glass back? That doesn't make any sense either.
The phone is very thin and very slippery. You definitely need a case for it or an external ZeroLemon battery bank to add some depth to it. I've seen a number of broken S8 (including note 8) that are very fragile and it's very easy to drop one as they very slippery. They feel like holding a credit card-thick piece of ice.
They seriously need to increase the battery capacity, 3300 mAh is not sufficient, a phone with that kind of resolution needs as least twice that maybe more. I prefer 10,000 mAh. Ideally making the battery replaceable. A Li-Ion battery has a finite number of cycles on it and generally goes bad after 2 years. And begins to lose some capacity after 6-12 months.
The Bixby app is another useless piece of sofware, I used an app to remap it something more useful.
my mobile is G955V (Verizon) dont have oreo update and i am stay in egypt
