Just got perfect screen protector for my s8 (front and back) ordered it online for just $6 full screen & back protection, comes in different colors which completely changes the look of already gorgeous phone, got two in silver & blue colors, it's not flimsy like the normal screen protectors, feels solid and typing on it is flawless.
Fourat, 26 Nov 2018It is worth to buy the s8 -I mean is it better than the current mid range phoneS?Forget about the mid range phones, S8 can still give the current flagships a run for their money.

Does no one here have any problem with screen burn-in? Most people in the comments seem to not be aware of this issue. There's lots of comment threads talking about the pixels slowly burning away the organics within them as with all AMOLED displays, but this is far worse on the S8 and +.
Just got one that's been used since its launch because it still has a 1 yr warranty and I didn't think this was so much of an issue. Lots of rectangular shapes are burned on the display, but thought a service repair will fix it and that's that.
Boy was I wrong. I looked up some common user issues, especially on Samsung community forums, and found that no matter how many times they're replaced AMOLEDs will still have this "ghosting" eventually no matter how well you try to preserve them. So there's nothing to be done once the warranty is out, except replacing the $300 display myself or using a screen with sun-spots.
If you want to buy one, BEWARE, the screen is very sensitive to all light colors, especially white (avoid it like the plague on AMOLED), and WILL get burned-in because of these colors but the severity will depend on how high you set the level of brightness and how often the pixels are kept on displaying still images or icons with said colors (even the home button or notifications).
nanana, 26 Nov 2018S7 or S8? s8 without even thinking. Nothing wrong with s7 but s8 is newer slightly better but with the best display going.
FullmetalJun, 24 Nov 2018Of course S9. Although it's similar to s8, it has better camera, has awesome stereo speakers &... morestill, S9 is a downgrade when it comes to battery life....it's the first one in many years when a newer model get a worse battery life, and in terms of fans..S9 is...wayyyy....back with the rest of the losers while S8 sits in the front raw..
Zaeem, 23 Nov 2018S8 or S9?Of course S9. Although it's similar to s8, it has better camera, has awesome stereo speakers & has project Treble which means it'll get faster updates & it'll also receive Android 10 unlike S8.
@F.galaxy - wtf u say s8??
scorpio, 23 Nov 2018I think that I'd be taking it into Samsung for a check up. That sounds very strange. When mine... morefirst discharge your phine to zero percent. then charge it completely to 100 percent and then unplug it. now it will discharge normally after 20 percent. it is due to error in calibration of battery charge monitor.
Fyz, 22 Nov 2018Had a 2ft drop on a carpet floor and display cracked & was it having a display film too!!!... moreI have very little sympathy for any one who won't get a decent protective cover for their phone. A film is only protection for scratches.
solidheart, 22 Nov 2018Is anyone else facing an issue of sudden battery discharge on S8 when battery goes below 20%. ... moreI think that I'd be taking it into Samsung for a check up. That sounds very strange. When mine drops down to 15% I receive a warning and it automatically reverts to Battery Saver mode. Nothing like what you're describing.
Is anyone else facing an issue of sudden battery discharge on S8 when battery goes below 20%. What usually happens is within just a few minutes battery goes from 20 to 0%. Otherwise battery discharges normally.
