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....
AnonD-752500, 16 Apr 2018My s8+ FD model has still not received the oreo update ? Same problem to me😭
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
I updated this phone from nougat to oreo after 2 month release....just disable edge screen n disable infinity wallpaper...battery life increase and set to lower resolution.....do it and see guys

Akhtarayaz, 30 Mar 2018I'm updated my phone to Oreo and my battery drop quickly anyone tell me whyFacebook app actually is not good for android phones.
Use slimesocial instead and old version messanger.
Restart your phone when you feel the battery become bad. As you will notice the ram available is 1gb ; after restart its become 1.7gb
