Hello. I bought new samsung s8 plus midnight black 64gb yesterday. Unboxing was totally awesome and the phone itself was stunning. Then i tried to navigate the phone and whats inside. The specification is great and camera is clear. Then i tried to download some apps from google playstore. However it states download pending. So i tried to wait for it. After an hour. Still nothing was downloaded. So i tried to restart the phone. Then after it restart. There was a notification about oreo update. So i agreed on it. Then it donwloaded the oreo update with some additional enhancement on the specification and tools. Then i tried to check back with google playstore still the same.
Its been one day already but still i cant used my google play store. I tried to check some details online. Some say go to setting then apps then google playstore then forced stop. And it will works. However for me theres no changes.
Is there anyway that i can fix my google playstore. Hopefully someone can help me thank you.
Guys I need help. I am choosing between iPhone 7 32GB and Galaxy S8 64GB. Both are at an almost same price in India for $660. I know iPhone 7 will get around 3-4 years of OS updates and S8 might get 1-2 max. Performance and Camera are more or less equal on both the devices. Display definitely S8 wins hands down. Battery life might be same as well buy S8 has fast charging.
If OS is not a constraint and OS updates also do not matter and everything else being equal, what phone should I choose that would last me 4-5 years as I cannot spend so much on phones every few years?
Also, should I opt for any other phone in this price range or even cheaper which would have same performance and camera quality which is my priority and should last me few years.
Never Buy Galaxy s8 its useless phone.
Lot of network issues .
I am vodafone user i get full network in galaxy a7 16 edition .and same sim card i filled in galaxy s8 i get no network.(both at same place)
And nobody even helped for that issue yet for samsung team.
24, 29 Mar 2018My S8 is barely a year old. still great. might as well wait for the S10 to upgrade. but im sti... moreI'm also waiting for S10 or possibly even S11. Or however these phones will be called, because Samsung might end the S line and come up with new name.
The S9's main advantage is the camera, especially in low light conditions. But my S8 camera is still good, and it's not a must for me to have the greatest camera on the market all the time.
I'm staying with my S8 untill something that really gets my attention comes up. Also, by using your phone for longer time - you get the most out of your money.

I'm using the S8 for months now and the camera hasn't let me down not even once, it's the 2nd best all around camera on the market right now and the best camera of 2017. I hope he made the right choice.
alienufoweird, 31 Mar 2018Unless you really really really really etc. really want fast updates and 960fps video then you... moreI had the XZ which was very expensive the time when I bought it as Sony was banking heavily on its camera but it was big let down as low light pics sucked big time. I sold it after couple of months for nothing and right now I'm using the S8+ which is a kicka$$ phone. Stunning camera and battery life one of the best phones I ever had.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018Want to buy a new phone. Im thinking s8 or xz premium. Which is better?Unless you really really really really etc. really want fast updates and 960fps video then you can go at it by looks and speakers since both devices are pretty much the same internally and the only main differences are camera, screen and speakers. In terms of camera it comes down to personal preference because the S8 camera even at 12MP still beats the xz 20MP camera in some situations like low light but loses in others like color reproduction etc. I suggest you try them out in a store and then decide but whichever one you choose you will get quality.

i cannot decide betweed Samsung Galaxy S8 and Iphone 8 Plus (I think Iphone 8 is too small) . Ive always had android phones... Can you give me some advise? (im aware of price difference)
Overdrive, 29 Mar 2018Xz1 or s8? Every aspect. Any suggestion.Xperia XZ1/Premium for faster updates and S8 for everything else.

My S8 is barely a year old. still great. might as well wait for the S10 to upgrade. but im still waiting for the Oreo update for the unlocked snapdragon version,is there a portrait mode on the oreo os?
Nivk, 17 Mar 2018Anybody getting monthly security patch for s8. Not yet after Oreo update...
Sandy, 26 Mar 2018I consider buying S8, but I often use loudspeaker when calling... What are your experiences..... moreIt's OK. I recommend you go in a store and try it yourself, the speaker is loud but not loud enough to hear it clearly inside a crowded place where you will find yourself keeping it close to your ear to hear.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018which one i should buy s8 or a8 ??S8 most definitely, the A8 is a dumbed down version of the s8 with half the performance so you'll be missing out on allot of things plus the camera of the S8 is ALLLLLOOOOOT better than that of the A8 since i played with both so i saw the difference first hand.
