hesko, 20 Aug 2017My S8 swam in the sea today !!! So do not be afraid to soak it !!!You should'nt bring your phone to sea the charging port might get some rust because of the saltwater.
Nickiyxox, 18 Aug 2017Please do not get this phone, it is not water proof !!Dear Gregford & Nickiyyxox,
I can guarantee you this phone is water and dust resistant with an IP rating of 68. No phones in the world is water proof yet. Send me your email addresses, I'll send you my under water videos, done by my S8.
messaging on samsung s8 takes time in sending a message not quick unlike other mobile phones , send software updates to fix messaging on Samsung S8 ASAP.

My s8 is waterproof don't know why the fuss. My s8 survived the toilet swim just fine. It was submerged. Everything still works even after the sanitizer wipedown.

I would say loving the Infinity Display. Super AMOLED screen is the best display in black and power consumption. 3 flagship phones to buy in 2017 is 4K HDR, Squeeze, Infinity Display.

Believe it or not my intention is to help, if I am able to do so. If you look at his/her post it I would suggest that neither you or I can determine whether our fellow forum member/visitor is in fact a 'noob' (hate that word) based on this one question alone. Is there truly any problems with the approach I have taken. Anything wrong with any questions I have asked? I believe I have been honest, respectful and potentially helpful but I'm open to any constructive criticism that you may have?
I have not assumed anything about the person that asked the question at all. Have you?
I understand that you are in the business of selling phones. If a Customer approached you with the same question, would you just give them your opinion, just go into some big spiel?
How would you approach this?
Personally I would find out what knowledge they had initially what experience they had with either apple or android? Find out about what they prefer, what phones etc they have used in the past. Its about what they the 'Customer' is happy with, it's about what is best for them, its not what our opinion on what is the best phone out there. We all have our preferences and prejudices and I believe it's important to put them aside as best we can.
Even little things may swing the Customer in a certain direction e.g The Customer may have £1000's of $1000's of apps downloaded from either the apple or play store. What's the point in just amazing people with your vast knowledge and opinions if only to find out small things such as this that will either make or break the deal for the Customer regardless of anyone's opinion.
I will never buy samsung flagships because of this curved screen and late OS updates.. i couldn't find a good tempered glass yet. Full face tempered glasses available but their have touch issues after stick that tempered
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2017Hi :) Forgive me but I see this question pop up time and time again on either the S8 or S8 Pl... moreremember yourself when you were a tech noob ? you were lost even you didn't know anything about operating systems. people here need help. i know people who don't know what is android or what id ios. so they just know iphone vs samsung . same to all of us when we all were a tech noobs
Dharmesh.i, 18 Aug 2017which is best phone i phone 7 or samsung galaxy s8probably the s8
Dharmesh.i, 18 Aug 2017which is best phone i phone 7 or samsung galaxy s8Hi :)
Forgive me but I see this question pop up time and time again on either the S8 or S8 Plus forum and I always consider it a bit suspicious really.
Perhaps it's just me but my first instinct would not be to post this question on a S8 Forum for obvious reasons. Can I ask why you did that? (and your first and only post) why would you not pose the same question on the I phone 7 forum to get more balance? (a view from both sides)
You are aware that they run on two completely different operating systems, android and IOS ?
I personally would determine if I preferred either IOS or Android before even considering what phone was best. What operating system do you prefer? ( the answer to this question alone will lead you to answerthe question that you are asking..... simple)
Have you tried the comparison tool on gsmarena or looked at the reviews? If so what did you think?
