If you live in a big city there is no such problem even if there is an apocalypse. Big screen tv everywhere on buildings to tell you about emergency. Watch the news on your tv. If you live in remote area, why even bother using high end smartphone? Buy a radio instead and live a quiet life in your farm house. Or check Norway how they survived without FM radio.
Jace, 05 Jun 2017Hmmm...now im confused. Facing down or not. Wait lemme experiment.no, it doesn't have to be facing down. its on youtube so you can watch how to set it up and see what it looks like. it doesn't stay lit until you lift it.
This phone sucks. Samhang has not got the hang of hanging yet. The S8, too, hangs sometimes. This is embarrassing.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2017Is it the S8 fingerprint a place to press. Is it really hard to press by using your left hand ... morethe first days were really awkward since 90% of the time I am pressing the camera instead of the fp reader but i guess with time and usage you'll get used to it. now my right hand always aims at the farthest left so i wont be touching the camera anymore. also, its a bit more advantageous for left-handed people. while im at office, i place my phone on the left side of my desk and its easier unlocking it using the left hand. hope this helps. :D
CpX, 12 Jun 2017i have s8 exynos version for a weak. i will post the cons and the goods
screen is ... morelolllll.......
what u say all can be achieved by redmi note 4 which is 5 times cheaper...... 4 gb ram ...octa core..... battery that last for a day.... except that screen is extend a few mm on top and bottom compare to 5 inch phone with same width... which is useless and ugly.....
but i am interested to know why u say iris scanner is unusable ...i think this feature is very cool..... can u explain more.... or u prefer facial recognition??? why people complain about finger print location??/ just use facial recognition laaaa.... hahahaha lollll....
i have s8 exynos version for a weak. i will post the cons and the goods
screen is excelent (as spected, no red tint problem , its big screen small body)
internal memory (64gb its ok for the price)
software(samsung in this point improve alots sisnce s7 much more smooth, more intuitive)
general speed of the system, some people complaint about memory but 4gb its ok for the next 2 year i think son with alots apps open i allways have 1-1-5gb memory free
baterry its good with hard usage, but bad with light usage (the CPU its very agresive allways turn on the 8 cores) but its ok for a day...
camera its better from s7 but no big improvement (i think its hard improve from s7 with actual tecnology)
iris scaner its no really usable. fingerprint really bad potition , face unlock its the most natural way to unlock the phone
Why this phone stucj at 7.0? O is almost there and i doubt this will get it.
Shame. Why doesn't the high end flagship phones have FM radio? It's not just Samsung.
The mid-range and budget phones usually have FM radio. It doesn't cost much, and it's very valuable feature to have especially when you don't have access to data. Might even save your life during emergency times.
Enough with this arrogant elitist attitude towards FM radio already! Streaming music isn't a valid option all the time.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2017This phone overheat? Like s7? I've the S7 and it doesn't heat.
No infrared..., 08 Jun 2017Will not see my money. It should have brought the IR blaster back. Few phones have ir blasters because many users don't use them because they don't work for their brand of tv, cable/set top boxes/ and other appliances. Had these users only downloaded an app called 'Anymote' from google playstore which has the best brand selection compatibility available, then they would have had a master remote controller for almost all their appliances. It turns out most users only rely on the built-in remote controller app that comes with their phone which is brand limited and has horrible functionality and customizability/cloud back up options. The end result is that the 'ir blaster' feature is seen as pure gimmickry/useless by most when it really is an indispensable tool when you download the correct app and properly configure it to run as your master controller everywhere you go.
The only brands which still have ir blaster in some of their newer and even latest smartphone releases are LG, Huawei and Xiaomi. Many of these smartphones also still have FM radio so if you prefer local news and entertainment broadcast in your local language/dialect with no data charges, then these brands also have them (though not in all their smartphone lines).

You are so correct about being able to find out things about your Galaxy flagships whether old or new. My S5 is still surprising me with new things I never thought possible and I now realise how many sensors are in it. The S5 is truly a masterpiece and I honestly don't feel the need to change it because quite honestly, everything released after seems like a downgrade.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2017This phone overheat? Like s7? Absolutely NOT! I can genuinely hand on heart say that it does NOT...... it Would be Breaking News on the TV if the S8 got just a little bit warm :)
The phone flies like a dream (Ok, dreams can't fly.....I know) Mind you so it should for it's price tag (I feel a Jessie J song coming on) ......... but the high price tag does indeed disappear into insignificance really when you experience the sheer beauty and power combined with elogence, class and quality that IS the fantastic Samsung S8 Plus.
The phone has to be held to be believed all shiny and new. Biggest surprise has been the amount of On Screen Time I'm getting..... very pleased. What a bit of kit! Seriously!
CHA, 09 Jun 2017BATTERY :) Hello! Been using S8 for three weeks now. (former Huawei P8) Very much satisfied... moreMaybe I try this Greenify. I'm a normal user too and disappointed. The S8 battery is worst than the LG G5.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2017Is it the S8 fingerprint a place to press. Is it really hard to press by using your left hand ... moreIt really isn't an issue. Many of the reviews and critics made a bit of a fuss of the fingerprint scanners position but a couple of days after using the phone I don't even think about it.
I'm using a case (otterbox strada) it works really well with it as I can unlock the phone before or as I'm opening the case, so easy.
