nikhilpatelj, 09 Jun 2017To be honest. I don't think new phones will be coming out with an IR blaster anymore as it tak... moreIR Blaster is not good, more people will use Cast or Mirror-link and it have better support to more devices for completeness of vision.
Shahin Sam, 09 Jun 2017Oky all fine but memory only 64GB???? I think it should be 128GB....Duude. Ever hear of expandable memory...?
CHA, 09 Jun 2017BATTERY :) Hello! Been using S8 for three weeks now. (former Huawei P8) Very much satisfied... moreIs it the S8 fingerprint a place to press. Is it really hard to press by using your left hand fore-finger. Do you miss press the camera lens when you want to press the fingerprint sometimes.
I'm using s8+ for last one month but it's strange that several scratches appears on display after 15 days of use .Simonteniously I am using note 5. Note 5 display is till showing its beauty after 1yrs frequent use
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2017iPhone 7 definitely. S8 is problematic. Lots of bugs and hardware defects. iPhone 7 is flawless.Don't listen to a iPhone user they always say iphone is flawless. Flawless means fraction of a Second you are not gonna win a lottery by using a iPhone. Bit using an Android you can have lot of features and customization. Anroid lag fraction of second because it is a heavy os with full of features
No infrared..., 08 Jun 2017Will not see my money. It should have brought the IR blaster back. To be honest. I don't think new phones will be coming out with an IR blaster anymore as it takes up quite some space and the phone companies are trying to make their devices as thin as possible. I agree that it was a useful feature for some of us but it was a very small amount of people who actually used it. Therefore it's hard to know whether it will make a comeback or not
mr.P, 08 Jun 2017does anyone know if the s8 dual sim support wi-fi calling Yes it does
Hello! Been using S8 for three weeks now. (former Huawei P8) Very much satisfied with everything but the first week was kinda disappointing because of the battery performance. I joined the S8/+ users group on facebook and from there I saw they're using this Greenify app to clean/hibernate unused apps. Now I got 19hrs on battery and 6hrs SOT-without any power saving mode on. Im not a heavy user, just a normal gamer, social media apps and spotify. Mobile data is turned on the whole day. Camera is super saturated at times but overall its the one of the best in the market right now. UI is good; I admit im not a fan of the old Samsung phone's UI but S8's more than good. Performance is superb!! No lags experienced (hopefully none at all). Im still exploring everything S8 has to offer since I only returned to Samsung now haha. Hope this helps everyone who's disappointed with the battery performance!
No infrared..., 08 Jun 2017Will not see my money. It should have brought the IR blaster back. The world has moved on............. infra red SOooooo last year. Get with the times man.

subesareta, 08 Jun 2017I bet anything you haven't even tried the S8. Yes, in the past what you said was true. But Sam... moreMy friend samsung have many bloatware but you cannot disappoint with his new touchwiz that run buttery smooth
Checked camera in the store 1020 image still got more details than the Samsungs S8
Kastros, 08 Jun 2017I did not realize this but Verizon sold me an Unlocked phone the SM-950U and yes this model do... moreNope. I have gone through the net for last few hours and didn't find anything about FM chip enabled S8/S8+ in the world.
Go to gsmarena and in S8's specification page, click on your model number (G950U in your case). You will see that the things that are different in your model are marked with pink on the right. Go down and you will see that beside the Radio there is written "No", instead of "Yes".
Now-a-days people don't use radio as it needs to use handsfree cable as antennas (in-built antennas don't work a lot of the times and they throw hiss noise if the angle is not perfect) and people moved toward wireless handsfree than wired handsfree. So the manufacturers have stopped putting FM radios inside.
But if you really have FM chip activated inside, you should be worried that someone cheated you with a clone model. Because Chinese clones have more than what the real phones tends to have. And model numbers are just an entry, very much do-able with software.
Hope you have NOT been cheated with a clone. Take care. Ciao...
mannypacquiao, 07 Jun 2017buy a memory card since it is expandableThe internal memory of S8 & S8+ is 64GB, but it is expandable with a memory card. Sure, a user like him won't be able to find any known brand phone for use. He will have to go for Chinese unknown brands where they offer two SIM cards + memory expansion. He is saying that S8+ is too big for him. Well, there is always S8. And he is for sure be unable to find a phone which has smaller screen and two SIM plus memory expansion plus Android. He will have to go for a basic phone.
I don't see it fit using a top end smart phone like SGS8, LGG6 or any other known brand and use two SIMs in it. Yes, they have the option, but doesn't mean you will have to use it by losing another option. I would prefer to use an expandable memory card rather than two SIM cards.
And the edge touch he is talking about, he doesn't even know that S8 & S8+ has palm rejection now. It doesn't open up apps by accidental touch. I am using my S8 for 30 days till today. And I didn't even accidentally pressed the Bixby button after initial 2/3 days. It's funny how people judge without actually knowing it.
