I have both version snapdragon and exynos.
And i've been tested for heavy gaming from full battery to 1%
The snapdragon more heat than exy, but good for running HD games.
Tested with PUBG,Vainglory,etc
So Far i love this phone by all means.
Using Verizon s8 and it's not updating.
All the time I try to update it says authentication failed
Try later.....what to do?

Mine also works faultlessly but I feel that since I did a security update last week it seems that the battery is draining quicker and I don't have as much battery remaining by the end of the day as I used to.

The format can't support files larger than 4GB. I had this problem with regular cameras as well. Google can provide detailed info. Good luck!
I love it! I charge it every evening so it holds up ~24hours for me. My ussage: Always ON(always turned on except night time), WQHD+, sometimes watch youtube, often listen to music via bluetooth or headphones, often scrolling through facebook. I experience no lag, I keep my cache clean as much as I can. Battery life is great, if you're experiencing battery issues, it might be one or some of your apps that are draining the battery.
At least the phone comes with fast charger and it charges in about 1,5-2hours.
PS. I have the Exynos model.

Hi guys! It is normal that my S8 can shoot a video of up to 4 GB in Full HD(around 33 minutes, and then it says it can not shoot anymore?). It is kinda frustrating, because I have enough storage. I know about 4k, you can not make a 35 minutes footage, because 4k is a really high definition(it would probably overheat like hell) and it would even eat up your phones storage, but to limit Full HD(I was filming with the front camera) to 4GB is weird. Anyway the same has happened with the main camera in Full HD.

Could you please provide a good trusted source to this claim with test results that prove beyond any doubt that this is true. Would greatly appreciate. Thanks
I am aware that there is conflicting information out there as to what is best way to prolong the life of the battery. I've heard for example that charging the battery between 20% and 80% is good but then I turn to another website and it will say something different.
Would appreciate if you could clarify what exactly is best practice.
Also setting the resolution to FHD will give you an extra hour?
Where did you get that information from?

It really is as simple as that. There is no point in comparing someone who for example uses their phone outside for much of the day in the bright sunshine and with the screen brightness set at auto to someone who is indoors most of the time with screen set at a consistent brightness setting ......and that's just the screen.
So just people indicating how much screen time they get does not tell you a lot really is what I'm saying.
