I was aware of how fragile the S8 is, so from day one I've had a robust rubber case for it. I bought it in November 2017 and yesterday, April 2018, I dropped it (from sitting height in the bathroom on the tile floor. It landed on a corner, in other words the rubber case took most of the impact, and on the bathroom carpet). Still I got a tiny crack in the display. A half hour later there were two more smaller cracks and waking up this morning I discovered the crack had grown till a top-to-bottom crack. So no matter if you try to protect it, you will most likely have a phone with a cracked display for part of the phones life. So find a better, less fragile phone to buy, and I'm not talking about the S9!

ALWAYS USE A CASE! mine using ringke fusion case, when it fall from my lap, my s8 safe without any damage! Curve screen and glass back is so damn risky, always use a safe case such as spigen, uag, or rigke like mine, sure it could reduce the impact from falling so your device would save :)

The other thing to point out is that being several months behind with the security update is quite common unfortunately.

You don't have to be Einstein to work out that this phone could suffer damage if dropped onto a hard surface. This can be said for most if not all the latest flagships.
What other phone with the equivalent specs including the IP68 rating could you drop 'very frequently' and not expect any damage? How much to repair each of their screens in comparison?
Did you buy and use a case?
Samsung s8 is the most sensitive phone i have ever bought. This message is for them whose mobile phones fall very frequently. Its screen display and back glass is the most sensitive of all the phones i have ever used(from iphones to nokias to htcs). If you can spend 14K again and again on screen repair then you can go for s8 otherwise please save yourself from this frustrating expenditure.

AnonD-494930, 15 Apr 2018S8 or iPhone 6s? Anyone? This is a simple question : GALAXY S8. Buying the iphone 6 instead of the S8 is pretty stupid since they came out almost 2 years apart so of course after 2 years phones improve allot. To put it bluntly the S8 has better internet 3G/4G speeds, is water resistant, has way better screen both in quality and size, better processor, more ram, DOUBLE the battery size etc.
AnonD-494930, 15 Apr 2018S8 or iPhone 6s? Anyone? I prefer the iPhone 6s because of the OS, but technically speaking, the S8 is the newer, more advanced flagship.
Hi, how much does it currently costs in Africa? especially in Nigeria.

Have others on the same carrier/service provider received the update yet? I know that some in the US have only just received the update.

To stop apps from using data in the background, simply go to 'settings' followed by apps and then click on any app that you wish to stop from using data in the background.
Now click 'mobile data' and switch 'allow background data usage' to off
