This phone release in 2017 still stuck on 7.0, the other brands phone release in 2016 already got 7.1 update, what a shame
Plz help me guys I am confused between Galaxy S8 exyenos and OnePlus 5 8gb because in my country both are on same price which should I go to get the phone
The Voice of Reason, 14 Jul 2017I would recommend looking at some reviews. Check out the phones in a shop, see them up close.
I had bought an s8 and just barely after a week the mic of the phone went faulty. So there is a constant buzzing sound that the receiver hears while speaking to me. And the worst is the customer care and customer service center , it's been 20 days that I have given it for repair . For the first ten days I was told that the parts are not available with the service center. The phone has come back to me in same condition after first repair.i am definitely filing a consumer court complaint.
The customer care executive says
'' we aren't taking your call to satisfy the customer or help you out, we are only here to pass on the information"
How bizarre is that
Never ever buy a Samsung my friend
Ro, 12 Jul 2017I want to buy a phone but I am debating whether to buy the OnePlus 5 or this Samsung S8 becaus... moreI would recommend looking at some reviews. Check out the phones in a shop, see them up close.
I could say go with the S8 Plus or the S8.. but I'm biased and I could afford this much superior phone hehe
In all honesty I don't know if it is wise going straight to a S8 forum and asking for honesty to a question like this.... it Would be the first thing I did? And how many people here would of tried out each phone for a long period of time? Most people don't own both of these phones.
Also look at how good each manufacturer is in updating the software or operating system in past models!!!
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2017That's the idea. It emulates the physical home button. As far as I know it can't be disabled.I get the idea. But it isn't mentioned anywhere, do people know about the feature?
The only thing that bother me is when holding the device upside because it full screen and there's no old home button any more : )
Don't be fooled by these new small bezeled phones with weird aspect ratios: their screens are a LOT smaller than the screen diagonal suggests. The S8 has a screen area of about 8500 square mm, which is only slightly larger than a 5.5 inch screen at 16:9 aspect ratio (8300 sq mm). Also, the width of the screen is only as great as that of a regular 5.2 (!!) inch screen, which is what determines how big videos are displayed! You only get a 5.2 inch screen's size videos, the rest of the screen is occupied by black bars!

AnonD-684227, 13 Jul 2017When is dinini releasing?it is already released. see it in amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y137TLR?ie=UTF8&tag=hotgadnew-20&camp=1789&linkCode=xm2&creativeASIN=B06Y137TLR
I got this phone about a month ago I HATE IT ! This is a nightmare. The phone doesn't respond correctly with screen protector, Bluetooth connectivity issues, I don't see anything fantastic about the camera, it looks like samsung tried so hard to make a very innovative device and it just failed BIG time!

I accidentally noticed my s8 screen wakes up when I press the area where the virtual home screen button is located. This happens when AOD is disabled. It doesn't work if I just gently touch it, it must be pressed. The double tap doesn't work here either.
I can't find any info why this happens and if it can be disabled. Does anybody else have this feature?
