I'm picking up the S8+ in a couple of weeks and battery usage has been my main concern. I've had an S6 edge for about 10 months and the battery really struggles. I get maybe 4, 5 hours absolute max of moderate/heavy use, so to hear that the battery on the S8+ is doing SO much better is really relieving!!

However, according to TWO Samsung support engineers, S8 "might" do a hard reset when you switch to another carrier's SIM.

AnonD-43988, 20 Apr 2017S7 edge was priced at 56,900 in India. Its USD price was $799 and the exchange rate was ~67.5.... moreIf you know in USA there is a sales tax. The minimum sales tax is 7% in USA with the maximum of 15%. So, if you can total you can see that it is the best price you can get for S8+ in India.

Currently testing the battery usage. 50% screen brightness with a mix of web browsing, app installs, video, camera and games.
The S8+ has used 10% battery and is showing 65 minutes screen on time. At that rate i would get nearly 11 hours screen on time with heavy use... THAT IS SIMPLY AWESOME :-)
Just did a charge from 0%. On wifi/4G but screen off.
40% in 30 minutes
80% in 60 minutes
100% in 80 minutes

Im not completely sure but this hard reset thing starts since galaxy s7. Look for a forum about it. Quite many users discussing about this.

Its an amazing phone because of its specifications but its design not that much..it looks weird..
WTF Samsung 6.2" its huge, idk is it a phone or a tablet..it will be hard to use, maybe the next year it will be 22"..guys, people dont look at the phone for its size..
Why every new Samsung phone has got a 12mp camera, the GN4 has got 16mp camera, then it started to go down..and of course the battery for S8+ is too small.
XZP has beaten up this one..👎
Black S8+ (Exynos) turned up an hour ago. Have plugged in my free 256GB SD card (thanks GN7)
Initial thoughts are.
- The black looks great and the device feels really well built.
- Glad they are going black cables and accessories
- Initially it looks a touch long but doesn't take long to feel normal.
- The S8 is grippier than the GN7. Not as grippy as my GN4.
- In relation to the black stripps. On the Black phone it is really difficult to notice so not an issue.
- The Samsung phone data transfer system is really slick.
- The curved edges are gentle and don't create issues.
- The screen is whiter and a lot brighter than the S7. Viewing angles are a lot better also as is the performance outside. My GN4 screen looks terrible in comparison
- The camera gas an 18.5:9 resolution (4032x1960). Personally i will be using 16:9.
- The camera performance is a massive step up on the S7 for inside pics. Haven't checked outside yet.
- Forgot to check the ram before installing apps. Currently it is using 1.6/4.0GB when cleared.
On the downside.
The fingerprint location isn't great. Would be better below the camera.
Have hit the bixby button a few times. Volume rocker keys could be a touch lower.
Will post more later once i have used and tested it but overall it is awesome so far.

I have a Note 3 (which I am finally replacing with an S8+ :) ). It is unlocked and I swap sims whenever I travel out of country to my "roaming" sim. It doesn't reset when I do this. Is this a new thing or does this only apply the first time a sim is used?
Hands down the most beautiful phone i have ever seen. And that's saying much because i've never preferred the s line over say the note line. Excited for what the next note will be like.

Will the hard reset occur if I temporarily switch to another carrier's SIM card (while I travel to overseas) and when I switch back?
I'm wondering what the difference is and whether it's worth making a replacement. Between 7 edgs and 8 plus
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2017Yes I agree with youIf you have a Samsung Tv and devices connected to it you can use your phone to control any of those devices. Soon they will have a new O.S. in September and you will be able to control any of your Samsung devices. I think that's why they took out the I.R. blaster. But it works flawless for me. I can even navigate my PS4 with my S7 Edge
