Wow. Lot of negative feedbacks. every phone released, they have something negative to say. lol . why don't you guys release your own phones.
I don't really get what samsung wants to reach with the S8? They are basically copying LG with the V20 and not even doing it properly.
-The LG already has Facial Recognition so it's nothing new..
-Fingerprint sensor at the back? Its not even centered in the middle, but at the top of the device? so if you have small hands, its not going to be in reach.
-Whats with the UI and home touch buttons? Its basically the same as LG's?
-LG was the first phones to come out woth USB Type C.
-Where did the IR Remote go Samsung? Last seen in the S6 and S6 Edge while the V20 still has it.
-LG sticks with the REMOVABLE BATTERY!
-When are you going to copy the wide amgle camera?
I can go on and on...
The S8 and S8+ is a dissapointment!
My opinion about this new phone is.. I think, samsung has done their best to continue making the series S phone. But, i dunno why i'm not satisfy with this new phone because it's characterictic of samsung is missing. The special of samsung from the old phone or new version is the home button. And now, samsung wants to make the new version that removing the home button because the phone is bezelless. And i think, the design isn't interest me because the corner of the phone is rounded.. So, i'm people who like the phone corner is sharp. Thanks
I expected s8+ to have compared to S7edge
Better cpu , done
Phone design to stay the same as it is the best , not done
Bigger Ram , not done
Bigger battery , not done
Same or Better camera , done
Improve screen material so it does not scratch , improved somehow.
Same or better internet connection, better
Same or better camera in low light , better
Same or better video recording , better

There is no issue for me if apps hang/freeze,
Navi bar back, home, still respond,
If phone hang just hold down power button,
No power+home to restart device.
Just now screenshoot maybe need power+volume down.

It is nice to have you fingerprint on the front.
2. What if the phone software stuck and you need to force turn off the phone. Previously (hold home +power ) would turn off the phone and get fresh start ... what will happen if the software stuck and you cant turn off it ...?
At somepoint I bought a brand other than samsung and it was fine , till the software stuck and I could not do anything about it ..basically i had to get rid of it.
Currently happy with my S7 edge. Which I think the best design for a phone.
S8 apparently has excellent processor , camera , screen , decent battery ( I expected more ! ) . Fingerprint on the back ( i think being front is better )!
RAM is the same as s7 4gb which is somehow very sufficient I did not need more than 4gb anytime during my last year using the phone but I dont mind having 6gb as it can keep up with the updates.
Im a faithful Samsung guy, but this was disappointing...i gotta say
1. No physical home button anymore
2. Fingerprint sensor is on the rear of the phone?...smh
3. 85% of the tech. specs match my Galaxy S7
4. More screen = Less protection
5. Color options don't impress
Final verdict...ill wait to see what the new Note has in store or simply stick with my S7
I will wait to see what the note 8 has to offer, I REALLY want more internal memory
I wonder why they remove the ir blaster after the s5 and never put back.
Omar, 31 Mar 2017Battery sucks....... only 3000mAh for sa 5.8" screen :( shamesungI think the S8 will show the black theme all the time including the browser to save battery consumption.
