Yesterday noon I got my S8. It's a beautiful device.
I've been using the fingerprint scanner and iris scanner both as my primary security helper. Both are fast. At first the iris scanner waited a bit before unlocking the phone, but as I've already unlocked it more than hundred times, it is near perfect now. It takes only a split second to unlock the phone.
No red tint issue or whatsoever in my device. Didn't restart yet, no hiccups. using 200GB SD Card along, running smooth.
The screen itself is gorgeous and pulls me to stare at it. The edges are not as curved as the S7e.
Yesterday I had a screen on time of 5hr 3min from the first 100% charge to 31%. I don't think the battery will be any issue (at least in my device). Still, I will not say anything until one week's use.
Today I am using it for two hours now. In the morning it was 98% for the screen on, I guess. Used it in Endomondo to track my cycling. I used high accuracy GPS & Mobile Data, at 9am it's 89% now. I will be able to tell you the details after a week.
It's a huge fingerprint magnet, so had to put it inside a case. The looks is nothing like the original now, but I have to keep it clean from fingerprints, at least where they can't read it, right? (wink emo here)
Camera is excellent, specially the virtual shot, where you swipe your phone around something and then watch it like a 3D object. I made my son 3D now, LOL.
So far so good. I know at least two more people, one of them bought an S8, one bought an S8+. I just talked to them, none of them faced any issues. I'll try to notify you guys if find any problems.
That's it for now. Take care. Ciao...

There are several phones in market that can easy smash you iphone 7 and seven plus in any test and comparison! It is only a brand name with some stupid software like safari or siri !!! Your ideal phone even unable to do a simple screen mirroring on any smart tv!
Super Amoled has an issue to show and produce natural colors! also s8's camera is not really good. In fact its sony camera doesn't really perform with its super amoled screen! Samsung should replace its sony camera to carl zeiss with low aperture in its future mobile phones!

You try hard in watching YouTube
Of course you know ONLY Xee Tech video ...S8 wins BUT in all other videos and vloggers iPhone 7 plus wins
iPhone 7plus 99%
galaxy S8. 1%
You also know it
Be honest.... we all are users
Don't brainwash among us
We should not pay a lot of money to the phone that fail to live up to the real life performances
In S8 many are talking points of show room
10- minute in showroom can't say battery life,, lagging with full load of apps and game,,,and so on.....
Bad biometric disturb in our daily life
S8 is not for most people ...Regardless you like the name Samsung with tight closing eyes
Go and test S8 happily

About Dak! That was just typically fault! Yes DAC is true! Now, when we have this good option (32-bit 384 kHz) how we can to use... It has Need to DAC, high end headphones, earphones or high end amplifier!?
I love samsung it's the best the best no phone will come close I mean Xperia xz premium lol 1080p screen, 12 mp camera what a joke. I seriously can't see any problem with the s8 it's so perfect a sleek, I love Bixby it so reminds me of Siri God I love that robot. I'm such a big samsung fanboy best ever Android again nothing can come close, Iphone suck, Sony , and HTC even the pixel lol ha ha ha. BTW Don't forget who created Android and who reinvented the smartphone which was samsung. Yes I do a lot of research DO YOURS.

Garlicc, 07 May 2017BODY WIDTH defines how big the phone is

Sony phones have humongous bezels so that's not a fair comparison. The S5 and S7 are both 142mm in length while having a 5.1" screen while the Sony Xperia XA1 is 145mm with a 5.0" screen. The S8 is basically 149mm which makes it 7mm longer. The S5 was originally considered a big phone (it felt a bit too big for my hands when I got it) which is why it offered a feature the resize the screen for one handed use. Why would I be excited to get a phone which is 7mm taller? So it can stick out of my pocket easily?
My s8 has a gap on the lower right between the screen and frame. I can fit a few millimeters of paper in it. Will that affect the IP rating of my phone?

S8 is 148.9mm that's basically 149mm while the S7 is 142mm. That's almost 7mm taller which is quite a huge difference. If a S7 fitted a pocket exactly then a S8 will protrude greatly out that same pocket. I hate to hear people saying the S8 has a larger screen in virtually the same body as the S7. That is clearly not the case.
Just realized where is the white version seriously wtf, I've always had a white samsung I'm in the UK by the way. Been looking at the Huawei P10+ gorgeous phone even tested it in the carphone warehouse quite a fast phone nearly like an iphone my daughter has. Anyone give me advice I like taking pictures and recording by the way.

If you watch phonebuff speed test it's normal you think iphone is faster than samsung. There are real time tests on youtube with mobiles side to side with apps opened simultaneous. Go and try xeetechcare test and learn what is real speed test.
Last year s7 edge won best camera phone so don't compare s8 to iphone 7 or lg g6 because s8 is the best camera phone out there. Don't compare it to sony and wait sony xzp camera test.
Amoled home button burn is only in your brains samsung haters. You talk about issue which doesn't exist right now. Or you fan boys live in future???
Last year s7 s7 edge had good battery enough with qhd screen. Battery test is made with qhd+ so stop lying. S8 has good battery.
I don't understand why people can't admit s8 is the best phone out there. It's so simple.
You talk about lagging. I dont' understand why people who never handle latest samsung phones talk about lagging. My Last year s7 edge never lagged out of box. I use only games, google apps or social apps (facebuk tweeter whatspp viber snap and other ..) microsoft apps (outlook words etc...) adobe camera 360 etc... and my phone never lag (nothing serious to mention appart little scrolling lags). I don't call it lag because all mobiles in market do that sometimes. If you install all apps found in playstore made by unknowns and entry levels developpers it's normal your mobile lag. Everybody can develop apps on android platform so there are many buggy apps on playstore. Safe apps doesn't lag your phone.
I speak french so excuse me to my bad english but test and handle a mobile before making bad comments. S8/s8+ are the best phones out there. Go and test on a store before making feedbacks.
Samsung Galaxy seems like an amazing phone, but is it better than the Huawei Mate 9??
Vchamp2k, 08 May 2017Why not samsung release or considered a s8 mini version of 5.5" edge screen with the same size... moreStop complaining, it's almost the same size as S7 flat which is in fact almost the same size as an 4.7' iPhone 7 with mammoth bezels.
Anonymous, 08 May 201732 bit 384 kHz without internal DAK!? Anyone do you explain about that?It simply means Audio quality
Not dak..... it is Dac
ON PAPER 32-bit in S8 seems better than "Music Boy SONY XZ premium"
BUT XZ premium has built-in Dac and it means you have got stunning amazingaudio and music quality, especially in headphones
S8 does not have built-in Dac and it means poor shallow audio and music quality
XZ premium's DSEE HX engine for audio will UPSCALE your no3 and low audio file to stunning amazing Hi-res audios
Competition in the market??
I confidently says "NO"
As SONY is unique in this audio field
iPhone is excellent when it comes to audio XZ premium is "a champion"
Loudness does not mean class leading audio...Rich,deep,clearity ,and smooth means amazing audio
Numbers are numbers ... Numbers doesn't' show real things
