Raul, 01 Feb 2019Hello , someone know about when s8 plus will recive android 9 update ? Just hope it doesn't. The new UI is absolutely horrible, especially the status bar icons.
I've had my Samsung Galaxy S8+ for a while and one phone that comes to mind next is the Sony Xperia XZ2. I need to ask questions of comparison on:
1. Which has a faster fingerprint scanner?
2. Which has a louder overall speakers sound output & clarity?
3. Which is compatible/capable of fast charging?
4. Which has a lossless (or near lossless) digital zoom photo quality in the rear camera?
5. Which has an option for wide-angle selfie?
6. Which has a more natural-looking (warmer tone) selfie camera? Better portrait/bokeh?
7. Which does better image and video stabilization & better audio (higher bitrate) in video?
8. Which does better overall in low-light/night shots?
Matthias, 05 Feb 2019did anyone faces a drop in signal ....sometimes I can't make any phone call ??!!Sounds like a network issue tbh I.E your carrier. That's where I would start. Have you considered that?

After the new update my s8+ got slower and reboting itself. Some times while changing its showing mouisture detected. Some apps are closing
I have got to say it is a great phone. It supports all games and apps however the screen scratches too easily and speaks are not that great but apart from that it is great
Raul, 01 Feb 2019Hello , someone know about when s8 plus will recive android 9 update ? I should point out that the S8's have had a third Beta update just a couple of days ago but as per the article all sources seem to be expecting the roll out to start later this month.
Raul, 01 Feb 2019Hello , someone know about when s8 plus will recive android 9 update ? Gsmarena are saying February and Sammobile the same. The Beta has just had a recent update.
BUT and it is a BIG BUT
If the update to Oreo was anything to go by it did take a while to roll out to all regions when it was finally released and they had to pull it after just a short period after releasing Oreo the last time and try again. I'm pretty sure they won't want to repeat that again. So hopefully fingers crossed shouldn't be too long but hey tbh I'm in no real hurry personally.

My battery drains very quickly...
Only after 1 year of use my s8 plus
Screen on time is only 4:30 hr now which was 6:30 hr earlier..
I take great care of my phone and applied all the tricks i know..
Same thing occurred with my Samsung galaxy Note 2.
Bye Samdung Forever....i m trying to sell it now.

So the map yeah it might be moving but on the screen there might be little buttons you interact with that are on the screen that are static even though yes the map is moving. ..
Think of an uber driver for example, using for long periods at a time.
As I've said I've never had the problem, well not that I've ever noticed anyway and I say that because it can be very difficult to spot. I don't really go looking for it tbh. I would gladly buy another Samsung display without a second thought they are incredible. So please don't think I'm knocking the phone. I have been blown away by the S8 plus and still really happy with it, nearly 2 years later. Best phone I've ever had and the longest I've ever kept a phone for.

You know like little buttons that you interact with that are permanently on the screen as the app is on. Dunno if that makes sense and sorry I genuinly don't meant to come across as patronising if it comes across that way.

I can accept minimal curved screen corners but this one has a massive curved screen corners, unfortunately it doesn't looks gorgeous than squared display.
Sam799, 30 Jan 2019Pie update?? When did that happen?? It was supposed to arrive in February or March.am sorry my mistake i forgot to say that it was a beta update, my bad guys, but yes i saw the second beta update and it took very nice pictures its amazing the front facing camera got improve as well, you guys who own s8 will be very happy about that.
scorpio, 30 Jan 2019Ok very interesting. When you refer to brightness surely your screen shuts down after some tim... moreA user could be using the phone for long periods and on a daily basis e.g using as navigation in the car with static images on the screen for example. That kind of thing.
FullmetalJun, 30 Jan 2019Most people who have burn in screen always use maximum brightness with no auto. All amoled scr... moreI've used a lot of Samsung phones in the past with amoled displays like: S6 edge+, S7 edge, Note FE, S8 and now the Note 8 and never had any screen burn issues on any of them and they all had been a pleasure to use. I always use auto brightness so the screen adapts the lighting conditions without stressing the display. Yeah you're right people using full brightness might be facing screen burn issues.
