Terrible design probelms for this phone, repeat design problems, not only some issues here and there, but lots of users encounted them:
1. sensors stop working, hardware problem, need mainboard replace...
2. boolooping, phone continously restarting, not sure if SW or HW problem here?
3. camera focus get stuck, mechanical design problem?
4. moisture detected in usb port and hard to get rid of it
Very disappointing by this phone. sent it to service due to point 1. problem.
I will never buy a Samsung again because of S8 very poor quality.

This phone was biggest dissapointment in my life.
You can't find curved glass to protect the screen, and book case sucks bad. And you can't use it one handedly at all with book case.
Then - my camera is blurry and won't focus till I shake the phone like a milkshake???
Then the lag I mean screen would literally turn unresponsive for a while, or I would need to tap "back" over and over again on Instagram...
And heat, S8 was heating like crazy, screen would get hot to the touch all the time, back of the device too, and especially aluminum frame + poor battery life.
Then Bixby button which drives you crazy, iris scanner that I would never use and fingerprint scanner which was bad + on bad location so I never used it.
I still miss this phone a bit tho, it's screen was nice.

And when it get blurry you need to knock twice the back of the phone near the camera with your fingernail. Voila! the camera is good again
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2018Easily crack screen, 1yr, 3 screen. Been a mobile user for 20+ years never had crack screen. Same here.. Due to super fragility of S8, shifted to p20 lite..

Now it can last more than a day even with gps and bluetooth activated (I have a jbl speaker) on social network usage. If you play fortnite or PUBG mobile it can last maybe 3-3.5 hours continuosly. I was highly dissapointed before but now it exceeded my expectations. Don't go with plus version,it's a nightmare to even hold it. I know, I know, battery lasts 30%-50% more, but my hands are much more valuable than a phone. Your phone, your choice.
I'm interested in buying the S8, just wanna know how's the battery life? I'm not a gamer but I'm highly active on social networking sites. Can it last for a day on that? Thanks.

scorpio, 25 Aug 2018Sorry Dominique I really thought that you were spreading mischief because my phone is so good.... moreI did and the problem recurred after a week. So I traded the unit for a different brand and totally eliminated the problem.
i had a few Samsung phones but after the s8 i will never buy another one, Samsung needs to realise that everyone has a phone for a different purpose and mine is business, this phone doesn't even belong in the business arena, everytime you do an update that is forced upon you the phone is stuffed, things like a double lock screen and having to swipe it like 50 times to back out of a simple call or sms because of all the crap notifications that pop up and whole lot more that i cant remember, but now the latest no sms notification tone and appears nothing can be done about it, bit hard when you run a business and your heads down tail up trying to get work done and rely on notification tones from customers or even family in an emergency not to mention i have spent hours in total that i don't have to try fix every time its updated, what a pile of rubbish just like the I phone, its my phone i want control over it not Samsung and its not like they are cheap, nah im going the new nokia, give that a try as samsungs phones no longer suit my needs.
