I using s8 about 4 months, and now sudden death total.
Why? How the solution? Thank you
I have this phone since may on a upgrade contract. Why did i choose this. I hate the finger print position. Actually wanted to wait for the Note8 but remembered the note 7 had exploding batteries and did not want to take that chance.
User 2017, 15 Dec 2017Hi guys, I am using Galaxy S7 for last 8 months and it's working great. Now, I am thinking to ... moreWell if it's working 'great' then why change?
The S8's are an upgrade from the S7's. Little tweaks here and there as regards to the capabilities, You a bigger screen ( 0.7 inch bigger) but the bezels are smaller. Personally I like this new trend but you maybe different.
In order to have smaller bezels the physical home button and fingerprint scanner are not the same as the S7 as you can now access home button on screen and the fingerprint scanner is placed on the back.
If you have used your S7 for many months then consider the battery. Your S7 has been charged many many times and it's a fact that batteries deteroate over time, so you may see quite a noticeable difference here) ...... do you know what? I could go on n on n on ....I suggest that you have a wee look at the comparisons below and worth looking at the review on the S8 (click link) and if you have any further any questions then just ask: :)
If I can't help then I'm sure someone will be glad to :)
Hi guys, I am using Galaxy S7 for last 8 months and it's working great. Now, I am thinking to buy galaxy s8. So I need suggestions, should I buy S8 or use Galaxy s7? Thanks.
I have been using S8 for about 5 months now and it has been a gr8 experience so far...the screen is beautiful and phone fits in hand perfectly for a single handed operation. I have been using Bixby for sometime now. It took time to get accustomed to the accent that Bixby would understand but now with better updates it has become far more easier. I hope Samsung keeps developing Bixby integration with OS & Apps as it might be really helpful as an assistant.
The camera has been excellent till now...Although I have had some problems in low light with additional noise creeping in pics as compared to other flagships. The edge display is cool, however, sometimes just holding the phone leads to accidental touch. I guess this is a problem with bezel less phones. I would say I am not a heavy user...but an average phone usage of about 6-8 hours daily. The battery is sufficient for a day's usage at Full HD resolution...lasts about 2-3 hours less on QHD.
Music quality is better with the given AKG tuned earphones if they are adjusted with the Adapt Sound feature. It just amplifies the frequencies that you hear less to adjust the overall sound. Its a neat trick packaged as a significant improvement.
The fingerprint sensor position is really difficult to access and smudges the camera. Also the HR sensor requires positioning the finger in a particular fashion to enable the sensor to take the reading. I hope samsung corrects this in next flagship release.
I have been using Samsung Dex for sometime now. Its a good option if you dont have to carry a tablet or laptop. However, it needs a screen with close to HD resolution. I faced problems connecting it to DVi/VGA as sometimes the resolution gets affected badly. However, I liked the interface Dex creates. Its simple. However, there are very few apps that adapt to the resolution so we would have to wait till the compatibility increases.
Overall, its an amazing phone. Even though LG G6 was launched before, I would say S8 marked the shift in the mobile industry much like what the first iphone did to the world of mobile phones.

ihrehaan, 15 Dec 2017Go for S9 the launch is nearThe S9 will be more expensive than Note8. How to get S9 if I can't get Note8? By the way, thanks for reply. Maybe I should stick with my S7 edge and raise my budget to get S9 next year.

"I can't get Note8 due to it's price but I got some pretty good deal which S8 and Note FE costs around 500EURO"

"To my surprise and the team here; the front and back is totally intact, only a very slight scratch on the aluminium above but almost invisible"
I can also testify that the phone can survive drops. I dropped my S8 Plus on to a tiled surface twice and it survived with not one bit of damage.
I would lying if I said that I didn't think myself lucky though as I do think it's not the most sturdy of phones. You just have to hold it to determine with a bit of common sense that it could break quite easily if dropped. I also now use a case because I think I have been very lucky and by using a case it does not mean I can't take it off at times to enjoy the beauty and feel the phone in all its glory.
There has been so much negativity surrounding the fragility of the S8's and I'm not arguing that they are not vulnerable to damage. BUT if you look at all the flagships, I don't think there is one that you could drop and be sure of NO damage.
People also have to bare in mind that yes you will see many people claiming that their S8's have broken online when dropped but this does not represent the true picture, as you won't hear from many people that have dropped their phone and it didn't suffer damage, as they will just pick it up and get on with their day quite happy whereas if a person that suffers damage will be raging and will use social media etc to vent their fury. Also fanboys of other Brands will simply lie to try and put the S8's in negative light or trolls will lie to provoke reaction.
Anyway this is turning into a novel. Thanks for reading my views on this, take care and keep smiling :)

Hello guys I'm currently using S7 edge and in planning to buy a new one. Could someone suggest me on which one should I buy, S8 or Note FE? I want a different user experience. I can't get Note8 due to it's price but I got some pretty good deal which S8 and Note FE costs around 500EURO (MYR 2499).

Thank God for the Samsung Team. Was just having a presentaion/seminar, and my S8 fell from an elevated platform almost 4 feet where it was being charged. It made a loud thud on the hard floor and I was scared to pick it up. To my surprise and the team here; the front and back is totally intact, only a very slight scratch on the aluminium above but almost invisible. I would've been heartbroken and I can only praise God. Thank you Samsung from a customer in Nigeria, Africa.
HADES99, 12 Dec 2017Can some galaxy S8 users tell me about their experience with the face unlock feature ? Does it... moreIts kinda accurate for me. Only time it takes long or fails is in really dark areas.
Just make sure you set up your face in a very lit environment and tilt your phone in different angles to represent as many scenarios as u can.
