I must apologize to Samsung.
One of the complains i had earlier was the email app. (not easily being able to register spam).
I have just figured out how to change my email from pop3 to imap which solves this matter.
If you have your own email domain and use multiple devices, PCs etc and are using pop3 protocol .... CHANGE TO IMAP ASAP.
All emails sent and received are automatically synced across all devices.
Can't believe i didn't do it years ago :-)

This is what GSMarena said in the review.
"When we plugged in our standard headphones clarity was barely affected so another point for the Galaxy S8+. Once again it wasnÂ’t the loudest smartphone around but was in the top quarter so another solid showing by the Samsung flagship."
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017No stereo speakers,No FM Radio,luckily i purchased the C9 Pro have it all with stereo speakers... moreWith all due respect, even gsmarena agreed C9 Pro stereo speakers sound like shits.
Can Any s8/s8+ user give me idea of audio quuality over headphone? I am impressed with the display but dont have any idea hows the audio performance via headphone? Coming from xperia z5 and it sounds great, any honest reply is highly appreciated :), audio is the sector about which i did not have any info about this device,so please reply :)
Bunyip22, 24 Apr 2017I'm getting over 10 hours screen on time on one charge.

I wonder what your data usage is? One thing I did not like about the Note7 was the fact that it would only last me 5.5+ hours of SOT, on a 7-hour stretch, with some 20%+ left. This was on LTE, using 1GB of data. It improves to some 33% if I was on wifi, meaning I have gotten some 8 hours SOT.
I went back and had a close look at my battery usage of the Note7, and it reminded me how I had to carry around a powerbank again to keep up my usage till I get home. It's nice to hear that the processor has gotten more efficient, but when you really have to use LTE, it would still need the same amount of energy to operate the radios.
I was hoping to get a Zerolemon battery sleeve, and that didn't happen... It's just that I don't have to worry about power when I use a Zerolemon 10,000mAh extended battery DIRECTLY powering the device, and I know I don't have to charge and let my LTE data on all day.
Let us know how the S8+'s battery on LTE.

No stereo speakers,No FM Radio,luckily i purchased the C9 Pro have it all with stereo speakers output,FM Radio,6 GB of Ram and 4000mAh battery,right choice for me,never regret having C9 Pro.
cant get the notifications for messages and emails to work on this new Galaxy S8+ I liked my old phone better.sorry. but yes, the pictures are pretty great!

(50% screen brightness, 1440p, everything running, mix of web, movies, downloading apps and games).
I am using under 6% per hour watching movies (i.e. 17 hours screen on time).
Everyone always wants a bigger battery but those numbers are great.
Incredible phone. Sleek, elegant, great battery life, and quick charge.
Battery very small for that display 6.2" and 500+ppi. No meaning so display. 3509mah very small.. Waste of battery only, full hd resolution enough (320ppi+) for 7"
I am currently living in Sydney, Australia, and I got my S8+ on the very first day of the release date. From my 2 days of experience, I would like to say that this phone is really a beast. Obviously there are some lacking. For example: There are no dual lenses like iphone 7 plus. The main thing I don't like about iphone is that they haven't included the first charging technology to iphone yet, which is really sad to me. However, it drains battery faster than the S7 edge or S8+. If anyone wants to buy S8/S8+, buy it without any hesitation. Finally, choices vary from person to person. So S8+ or iphone 7 plus, both are the beast! Choice is totally yours!
NestorM, 23 Apr 2017I said that the AREA is the almost the same than the Note 5, even with the S8+ being 6.2". In ... moreThe S8+ screen is 69mm x 142mm = 9800mm² (ignoring corner curves)
The GN5 screen is 71mm x 126mm = 8950mm²
That is a bit over 9pct more. You are right, the ratio means it isn't as big as it sounds. Hopefully the GN8 is a 16:9 screen or similar and at least 6.0 inches.
The SanDisk card, class 10 should have no problems playing video if its genuine.
Bunyip22, 22 Apr 2017Actually the S8+ IS 6.2".
It is measured on the diagonal and ignores the curve on the corn... moreI said that the AREA is the almost the same than the Note 5, even with the S8+ being 6.2". In the end, the S8+ is not a bigger screen than the Note 5"
just a different shape of it, if you compare the screen areas, the difference is just 2.7%
I have been using a SanDisk card, class 10, and had video pausing all the time. i guess I will have to use a samsung card
I know the GN8 is a way off but these are my thoughts after using the S8+ for 2 days.
The 18.5:9 sceen ratio won't be great for the S Pen.
If Samsung used the same bezels of the S8+ and a 6.2" 16:9 screen the GN8 dimensions would be 81.1mm wide x 154.8mm tall. This is a smidge bigger than the GN4. This screen would have 8% more area than the S8+ and 18% more than the GN5 (ignoring curved corners).
This screen and dual rear cameras would probably convince me to trade in the S8+ as much as i like it now.
Also, the finger print scanner should be BELOW the camera :-)
I never really considered an s device over the note line but i'm close to buying this s8+. But the lack of an s pen keeps me sane enough to wait for the next note. But by the love of god, this phone is indeed gorgeous.
