I ordered the unlocked S8 a few weeks ago. I sent back the next day because I could not send texts. I tried all of the troubleshooting I could find. I'm not paying $700 for a fragile phone I can't use. I'll stick with my LG X-charge. The S8 was not much better.

Qleopatra, 21 Oct 2017How about the battery life compared to sony xperia xz1 compact? Is it more better? Sorry I don't have or have not used that Sony cellphone so I cannot answer your question. But compared to my Samsung Note 5 which was my previous phone, I'd say the S8 battery lasts longer, and I can use it the whole day without having to recharge. To give you an idea, from a full charge of 100% battery level before hitting the sack at night, battery consumption is minimal overnight to around 96% when I wake up in the morning, without closing any app, and that's very good battery management in my book.
no name, 21 Oct 2017¿?What¿?You are not going to be buying a smartphone for over 8 months (summer 2018) Why have you narrowed your search down, to either the S8 or IPhone 8?
Have you considered any other smartphones?

Anonymous, 21 Oct 2017What are the "many more advantages" the S8 has over Iphone 8?Also I myself having an Iphone 5 and it dosent mean if u like Apple then everyone does same as you.Now most Apple users says that Android is laggy,Did they ever tried Android?No.My dad having Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge,Its been 3 years and it still works perfect,Meanwhile Iphone 5 having problem with chargers.Whenever i buy new charger for my Iphone 5 it works only for 2-3 weeks,Then it gets useless.But still i dont complain about it.My mom had Iphone 6 and it was the worst Iphone ever.It has been got problem of Charging same as my Iphone 5,Then after few months it got temprature problem.I could also complain about that!But no because everyone has different choices,Thinking,Using,etc.So dont try to be smart.Both Samsung and Apple are amazing Brand,But it depends on the person.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2017What are the "many more advantages" the S8 has over Iphone 8?wo wo wo,We got the fanboy over here.Sorry to say this.First of all I'm biggest fan of Samsung and Apple both.Each if them has advantage each over.Well let me tell you what S8 has over the Iphone 8!
New design (Unlike Iphone 8)
It has bigger screen
Has Bixby Assistant
Has Iris scanner
Has new fearure called Dex
Has wireless charger (Ooh Apple made that too?)

scorpio, 18 Oct 2017Hi Matt8 you mentioned that you "re-indexed" your phone. Can you please tell me how to do that... moreHi Scorpio,
From what I gather, "re-indexing" files is done automatically - I didn't have to do anything at all, my S8 just seemed to fix itself and the excessive battery consumption that I observed right after installing the software update eventually stabilized and disappeared all by itself. I also didn't have to go to the Samsung shop to have the system re-installed as you had suggested because everything went back to normal after a few days and my S8 is all good now. Hope this answers your query.
An S8 is a pretty good phone, haven't used it personally, but from the people that have used it they would recommend this over the note 8 because it's cheaper and essentially the same thing.
