Note: With all due respect to other phones:)
Help me bros between ONELUS 5 and S8!!
I am a heavy gamer and take photos and buy best for my price.
An amazing design, good performance at the start, not so good battery life! 4 gigs of ram is enough for any normal day tasks and even gaming but then also it can't beat my 6S in usage and smoothness. Apple anyday but then each to his own! I think the 3T is still smoother and easier to use compared to the Samsung phones.
S8 has a brilliant I think the best design today but ifsc performance can't live up to that.
Wait for the iPhone 8 and it will blow you away!! 1000$ is a heavy tag but well the 7 plus does the jobs you want it to do with utter smoothness and feel.
Just made a right decision not to wait for oneplus5!!!
As its still completely unmatched to Samsung's latest s8! Had s8 for about 3weeks. Honesty s8 is superb! As in its just so damn good! and totally satisfied with its great performance and endurance. Speechless to its camera and video shooting. Loving it!!!!!!

Maybe you have to manage some of your apps especially the ones that's not being used

This phone is very reliable in terms of performance and internet connection, it can also process multi applications, better than any other brands and IP68 is the best feature of this phone and Bixby is very helpful.

Do ensure you use the original new Fast charger.
Forget about older model type charger, as always use the original new charger.
Completed charged, then do Restart the phone.
Charging may affect other settings and apps, so it is best to restart should the phone is not stable.
If the charging is still like this, then it is time you try to restart the phone BEFORE charging.

Ever drop a tablet, the outer glass no break and no scratch.
But the inner screen fully broken into thousand of small pieces.
Just use a simple screen protector will protect the screen from dirt & oily hands.
As the screen already being protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, so need another glass to make the phone heavily and thicker that heat up fast easily.
Well, i did damaged a Samsung phone screen by dropping and guess what.
The Samsung service center replaced it and prepared to pay, then the staff said it is FREE.
no name , 19 Jun 2017lolllllll.... how long futureproof it is ? thats your question?? please reply this message how... moreYou can laugh all you want, though I have no clue why.. I Treat my devices with the utmost care and always use a pretty heavy duty case to keep it looking like it just rolled off the factory floor.. I keep them for a very long time.. Ex: I currently use two mobiles side by side, the HTC HD2 [Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional with htc Sense] and the BlackBerry Bold 4 9900 [BB OS 7.1]... The htc is 7 years old with the same battery it came with and the Berry is almost 6 years old again with its stock battery, I use my phones as pure communications devices and nothing more.. I charge them once in 2 days..
I thought of buying the S8 to replace both of them because they're starting to show their age in terms of day to day functionality [the Devices look pristine though!]. That's why I was curious about it being future proof for a good few years..
Coming to the points you made, the first two were about the battery and its lifespan.. If you have half a brain and a hand attached to an arm, you can very easily replace it yourself by just opening the device..
The third was more in line with a concern I had regarding the future proofness of having a device with 4GB RAM since I do keep 'em for long..
And fourth, yeah, new devices do tend to come out with more features that its predecessor but for me the S8 already has plenty..
lintern, 19 Jun 2017Just ordered this lovely device and will be getting it in a couple days! Excited! :DAwesome! I hope its everything you're expecting it to be! Congrats :)

The last thing I want to do is buy the device at its launch price, that $100 off is something I'd like to see happen and would convince me to buy it because then I could justify buying a really expensive case like the OtterBox Defender or the Lifeproof Fre to protect it.. People here can be very spiteful for some reason..
