AnonD-636056, 23 Jul 2017I was a tech noob but have learnt from my killing mistakes. I have done a big mistake the day ... moreS5 does better photos, 4K recording, has water resistance, fingerprint unlocking and a newer generation amoled screen just compared to S4. Excepted for design, you are stuck in the past my friend. I purchased and upgraded since S1 until S6 Edge so i know when a galaxy upgrade is worthing it. My next worthy upgrade will probably S9.
First phone with NO SHORTCOMINGS
phone is amazingly fanta-bulous........i disliked Samsung due to same design and look for years, but after this release i bought it immediately.
only one thing is the App Icons are not that impressive as iOS app icons....Thats all
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2017Samsung UI really sucks, designed for baby's and children They should put Google pixel UI on S... moreYou know, you can switch them and find a google pixel's one too. I don't have a S8 but since S6 you can do that or is it just free bashing?
Having problems with my s8 blurry rear camera.
Please check this site.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2017Yeah, and if im honest I did not mind paying full price, I can accept that BUT the thing that ... moreI was a tech noob but have learnt from my killing mistakes. I have done a big mistake the day i upgraded from s4 exynos to s5 thinking s5 gonna be a super phone in graphics and multitasking i was dissapointed when i saw nothing changed . I went back to s4 and till now i am not thinking to upgrade cuz nothing deserves.
im from india. after july patch update gallery app is glitching. when scrolling up n down its vibrating or jumping up n down. and one more thing......when i put it in 720p resolution the opening app folder feels lag or frame drop....not that smooth animation as befofe.
i think when u get an update it tends to format once to run properly but u cant format ur device all time.......so guys have you seen the same problem as me.....??
btw im using exynos veriant.
camera sharpness, shutter speed, and focus has slightly improve than s7 edge
galaxy s8 is nearly perfect but make the fingerprint location on the front of the screen and also a glass back which is prone to shutter easily.
beautifuly designed...... please make a 5inch phone in the same design with samsung logo as usually. The phone size should be 127x63.3x8 mm. I don't know the practical difficulties do so.. but it should be a beautiful phone. people like it and go for it. small things are happy always.
AnonD-636056, 21 Jul 2017It's not a wise thing you buy a phone as soon as it gets launched Yeah, and if im honest I did not mind paying full price, I can accept that BUT the thing that really annoyed me was the speed in which they started dropping the price after launch and by how much they have dropped in price, some of the promos and trade in offers are just crazy ....... dunno I just feel a bit cheated in a way.
Just my opinion but they could at least wait 6 months or so.
I will learn, but samsung will not get as much money from me next time. I win they lose.
Hey Samsung,why not an s8 6gb of ram,just s8+? I have one s8 g950fd 4gb and i was thinking to give it to my wife and upgrade to a 6gb ram s8,but the s8+ it's too big for my hand...What I'm gonna do now,redirect to htc 11??
I will never buy another samsung phone on release..... never!!!!! Im a mug!!!! I have done nothing but defend Samsung whenever I see someone bashing them and I suppose I was becoming one of them sad fan boys at times, but the more and more I see price drops, promotions e.g (trade ins and buy one get one free and $$$$$$$ and £££££££'s knocked off) shortly after release the more I think I have been punished for buying the phone on release, Punished for showing samsung support after they had the disastrous release of their last note.
Sorry, just had to get that out of my system.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017I have the samsung s8 ... my battery used to last up 24 hours but lately and all of a sudden i... moreIt's impossible to say with the information that you have given, I don't get 24 hours out of my battery or even the 15 - 20 hours as you do, but I'm a very heavy user and like a bit of gaming.
You could get someone who doesn't charge their phone for 3-4 days because they simply hardly use it. We are all different. It depends what you are doing with your phone and what apps you use, also if you are in areas where you don't get a good signal.
I would look at your battery usage (found in device maintenance) look at the breakdown of what apps etc are using most of the batteries resourses, ask yourself if you have done anything differently, as I said before have you been anywhere with a low signal, have you used your phone making or taking calls for longer periods, watched more videos or played games, used Wi-Fi longer etc etc etc etc
It is absolutely impossible to tell from the information you have provided.
after july patch updating opening folder feels laggy.... otherwise phone feels bit snappier than before. my device is exynos.
It's very fragile. It slipped from my hand to carpeted floor. Screen cracked. Have owned it for three days. Never experienced this with any other Galaxy. And it was in case.
Kohinoor Poultry, 18 Jul 2017Friends is there any 128gb version cause In India some dealers r selling 128gb & saying it... moreThis should help, taken from gsmarena website.
