After upgrading from a Samsung S6 Edge the most noticeable improvement is the amount of battery life I now get, has well exceeded my expectations.

When s8 senses the temperature more than 40 or 41 it stops charging then you have to disconnect charger and again reconnect in some time. I was also facing the same issue. I contacted samsung and i got this reply from them. Then i tried charging my mobile in AC environment and every time it charged from 3 to 100% in 2 hrs without ant freezing.
S8 Plus is freezing while charging..Consistently it was stucking at 84% and sometimes it was at 61%. If I remove and reconnect again its charging. Anyone have faced the same issue??
Samsung....Please send an update... S8 Plus...is freezing when we call sometimes..it is my true experience. I am repenting now after shelling out Rs.65000 ..

I can't accept that your 'review/comments' was/were truly balanced though overall.
Ok, you said something like 'better speakers on a Ficher Price toy' which I must admit I happened to find quite amusing and in general your comments did have a bit of the old tongue in cheek humour coming through, however, not a true unbiased or constructive piece overall in my opinion. Can you hand on heart say that the S8 Plus is as bad as you have implied? Really?
Kinda in the words of George Orwell: You too may come to love your fantastic Samsung S8 Plus....well, once you have perhaps had time to reflect.
What do you like, or even love about the phone? Anything?
[deleted post]Your comments makes no sense. This phone is the best in the current market. Please go back to your stone aged Iphone and enjoy
Mac, 20 May 2017Very biased, unhelpful review.... lots of things you have pointed out are not true. Videos f... moreI'm aware. You don't seem to be aware that it stretches the video to accommodate the 18.5:9 aspect ratio of the phone, which is a step backwards in technology to "this film has been formatted to fit onto this TV."

I'm not against Samsung, and I'm not getting paid for anything. I'm trying to vent my frustrations over the rise of form over function in design.
For next note 8 will buy if the finger print sensor on right place and it could do 4.0 charging if not Apple here I come

very bad phone just bought a week before the screen is cracked without any shock and mishandling very bad company. Don`t even think to buy it wastage of money not worth the amount paid for it.
Anonymous, 22 May 2017Wrong. Mine fast charges...even with the USB connector!! #S8PlusOfcourse the phone 'fastcharges' that is not in dispute. But what is a 'fastcharge?.......truly?
The battery on the Samsung S6 for example would 'fastcharge' to 100% in a shorter period of time compared to the S8 Plus! Both phones that have the ability to fastcharge, however they would not take the exactly the same amount of time to charge from 0% -100%.
Also please note, that individuals can also have a preconceived opinion/idea as to what is a reasonable amount of time to charge a battery. Ask two individuals exactly the same question and you may find yourself listening to completely different answers.
Joe might think that an hour and a half is a very long time to charge a phone from 0%-100% but Bill might think "OMG that's super fast!" .........Only when we (or Joe or Bill) consult the instruction manual or research perhaps by visiting reputable, knowledgeable websites, forums etc do we or they actually discover if indeed one and a half hours is either a long or short time for the task at hand* it could turn out that an hour and a half is average and that both Joe and Bill were both incorrect in their evaluation of what is considered either a long time or super fast!
* task at hand in this case is to charge a battery contained within the Samsung S8 Plus.

bunny, 20 May 2017My phone very slow charging .....s8 plus As far as I'm aware and from what I have read on other forums, this is quite normal. I'm led to believe that the phone will not 'fast charge if the phone is in use, so if you are like me and pick your phone up to have a wee browse or whatever, this will have an impact on the length of time the battery takes to charge!
Also note that the battery in your S8 Plus is possibly larger in capacity to the phone you used before taking ownership of your new S8 Plus. So now the charging time is a bit longer than you were used to on your last phone, because the capacity of the S8 Plus is bigger (3500) and as a result will take longer to charge.
You could also have a faulty battery though!
