Pixel 2 or Samsung s8? Going travelling and getting into landscape photography/video making with a gimbal. Can get either for about the same price. I'm coming from an iPhone. Any opinions?
Anyone having problems with Secure Folder and the Oreo update?
I doesnt work with my fingerprint.
alienufoweird, 15 Mar 2018Well the a5 has the same identical battery inside but a weaker processor so it's only natural ... moreI do changing the resolution to the lowest one. But still cant beat my a5 battery. But u were right, its maybe due to the fast processor that consume more battery. So thanks for ur info :) afterall im happy with my s8, such great upgrade from a5. About battery life i think its not a big deal. Its worthed with its performance :D

A 250Â€ device will always fare better in battery life than a 500Â€ one but it will also be slower and have worse hardware in most cases like the camera and screen quality. KEEP IN MIND that the S8 has a 2K screen (30% better quality and resolution) while the A5 is a 1080p device, i think if you change your S8 screen quality to 1080p you will get approximately the same battery life.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2018Samsung 8 or Huawei mate 10 ? for all around performance pls help..tnx NOTE 8 or SAMSUNG S8 NO DOUBT. If you can afford the S9 then EVEN BETTER. Although the Mate 10 looks better on paper i can assure you the quality between the 2 devices (S8 and MATE 10) is pretty substantial staring from the water resistance and hdr10 but the camera quality is higher on the samsung S8 or Note 8 than on the Mate 10 because of the lenses and overall software regardless of the megapixel difference. If you can afford the S9 get that since it's definitely better but if not then the S8 or Note 8 is a better choice than the MATE.

After the Oreo update this phone works even smoother. I had this phone for almost 3 months and I'm really happy with it. Not even one problem has occurred and I hope I will keep it for 4-5 years from now. It's quite fragile and I recommend a good case though. I got a led case and it's good for me.
I got the oreo update few days ago (Hungary). at the moment it SEEMS the battery consumptions is improved and the notification panel is also better, however they took away few useful features:
- the home icons have frame, and i cannot turn it off (i turned it off, but nothing happened and yes i tried to turn it off and on again)
- I cannot turn off the unnecessary icons in the status bar (like alarm, optimized performance)
- i cannot just click on the HDR mode to turn it off or set auto, i have to do it in the menu...
i hope they will fix these soon.

I've been a week using s8. So far im satisfied with this phone. Great display, superb camera, fast performance, no lag in gaming, loud sound. Bixby perform well too, i could use her to helping me dialing number while im driving.
One thing i should asking u guys, is it my just phone or u all feel the same that battery life isnt so long? I compared it to my a5 (2016) that have longer battery life. It last a day on normal use, but when i using it for heavy game like asphalt.. Well.. need to charging it couple times 😅

Any issues on the S8? I like to get one. But then many users reported of slowing down. Wanted to get a decent waterproof smartphone.
keyurforyou, 12 Mar 2018hey guys I got a 2 month used S8 for Rs 37000 (570$). I know if i take care of the mobile it c... moreThis depends on how much money you want to throw around every year, personally i'd rather keep my S8 for another year and get the S9 at half the price afterward while KEEPING my S8 instead of selling and adding another 400Â€ to 600Â€ just to get pretty much the same phone. I say use your phone for 2 years and always buy last years model that way you can find some good deals buying it used from all the desperate people that want the latest model and are willing to cut a deal just to get rid of the old one. If you wait a little you save up allot.
Android Oreo on the S8 in the UK this morning, just letting you know incase you dont
