I personnaly don't feel that your constant bashing of the phone is fair, you just have to do a bit of research to see that the phone was launched with high critical claim. And to say phone like that shouldn't even make it to a store at a first place I also think that that's a bit harsh too and you are a naive if you believe that the S8 is the only phone that has developed a fault for the minority of users that purchase the phone. I think if you take of the blinkers and dare to look to see if your beloved IPhone SE is blemish free then you may then understand why I think your comments are harsh and quite frankly prejudiced.
scorpio, 04 Sep 2018It only happened the one time and actually freaked me out a little but I remember someone here... moreYeah it's the same here in the UK with the 2 year warranty, certainly gives you peace of mind. Had a wee look on gsmarena and they actually highlighted the issue if you didn't know. You would think it was a hardware issue if you have to physically tap the lens in order for it to work.
Here's the link if you haven't seen it or for those that haven't :)
Good phone but freezes at times and you have to turn off display and turn it on again to unfreeze it
scorpio, 05 Sep 20181% drop per hour should be ok.Thanks....
Am impressed by the phone esp the signal reception....
hi guys, new user of the s8....
Am not power user....no facebook, no twitter, no instagram, occasional whatsapp...noticed the battery barely makes it by the second day. have chosen mid battery saver, disabled nfc, wifi,bluetooth, on gsm network..overnight drain is around 7%. Is this normal?
Eh?, 04 Sep 2018"And it will lag and freeze in few months of it's use"
So the S8's will just lag and freeze... moreFrom my experience, yes.
I often had issues with lag after few months of normal use. And it would sometimes just freeze for a while and screen would be unresponsive...
I most likley had defective unit tho, judging from my camera issues. But overall - phone like that shouldn't even make it to a store at a first place.

I haven't had to use it since so I'm hoping that it was just an aberration. I will use it again though as my phone has a 2 year warranty with Telstra here in Australia.

Its very hard to tell who is telling the truth and many of the posts I see are posts that are super exaggerated to try and make a point or simply trolling.
I will also apologise to anyone that does have a genuine fault and I have dismissed them :)

I'm not trolling, blurry S8 camera is a real issue for big part of S8 users.

Until now my phone has been perfect. I've taken hundreds of photos and all have been sharp and perfect. two days ago I had to take a photo of an incident and it was blurry. I tapped the camera lens and took another photo and it had returned to perfection. Can't tell if it will happen again but I will re-test it. I apologise to all those who I had doubted.
I would like to buy the headphones that come with this phone, your recommendations?Thanks
Also i can drop geekbench results 2000/6700 and at throttling i receive 1600/4600 ot 1750/5500 kind of results. Not all restarts fix it

If so I could spend all night listing comments about people claiming the phones heating up or lag or whatever and it's not just your phone that has issues.
For example and as I said I could create an endless list.
"My phone lags to the point of being unplayable at times" (Note 9)
"I play on iPhone X and 1st gen iPad Pro and both suffer these problems"
"Seriously!?... how unoptimized is this damn game for mobile? YouÂ’re playing on the best mobile devices money can currently buy and the game still runs like poop. How is this not a bigger issue and how is Epic Games not getting flamed for making such a (thus far) crap port?"
