Anonymous, 27 Mar 2018which one i should buy s8 or a8 ??S8 most definitely, the A8 is a dumbed down version of the s8 with half the performance so you'll be missing out on allot of things plus the camera of the S8 is ALLLLLOOOOOT better than that of the A8 since i played with both so i saw the difference first hand.
AnonD-491012, 28 Mar 2018S8 or mate 10 pro ? which one is better ?Although the Mate 10 might look slightly better on paper the S8 offers more quality build and better screen plus a great design and the camera rocks even if it has only one shooter and less megapixels the overall quality is better than the Mate 10's. I don't have to say that the S9 is an overall improvement over the S8 so i seriously recommend you get that over the S8 any day but if you can't afford it then the S8 is a great choice and if you have big hands (seriously big) then get the plus version since the screen will look better.
AnonD-491012, 28 Mar 2018S8 or mate 10 pro ? which one is better ?Headphone jack, ip68 instead of ip67, expandable storage, wireless charging so go for S8. Just for camera is not enough. Monochrome lens is one of the most useless innovation ever made in smartphone history.

noooo, 27 Mar 2018Why it doesn't have radio ?The Snapdragon variant does contain a FM receiver chip. You will have to download an app to activate it though if your carrier has not done so.
Sandy, 26 Mar 2018I consider buying S8, but I often use loudspeaker when calling... What are your experiences..... moretry to open your voice recorder then press record and observe the sound graph if this detects your voice,, if not forcely blow an air to the mic hole beside charging port and continue until the recorder detects the noise. hope it helps

If money is no object and it's specifically the external speaker that is holding you back in taking the plunge then I suggest you consider the S9's stereo speakers.
"The speakers were noticeably louder than the single one on the S8 and the S9 setup scored a Very Good mark in our loudness test. Indeed, Samsung delivered the promised boost in loudness. And while this is rather subjective, the audio output is among the best we've heard from a smartphone to date"

What are your experiences...? Is it acceptable, has it been somewhat improved through software update ? Thanks....

Many people will do a factory reset every now and again even if they haven't received a major update just as part of maintaining the phone.

Everyone is entitled to opinion. And yeah, even without upgrade, some people sometimes have to do factory reset because of issues that happen. It's all about how willing is someone to take chances. And not gonna lie - I don't want to take any. Even tho, I know that there's 90% chance everything would run just fine by just erasing cache.

Wish it was a bit more robost, but then easier and cheaper to replace the screen ..... but then it's a kinda give and take (OMG, I have a Phil Collins song in my head) Would rather it was as it is, 1P68 n all, than to be built like the S8 Active.
And the morale of the story - Buy a good Case.
Excellent mobile phone
But you cant rish breaking it, very expensve to get repaired, All glues and have to break it inorder to get into the mobile phone. We at www.rapidphonebuyer.co.uk tried buy them from customers but ended up not been able to get them fixed as used were cheaper than fixing them. so think twice before buying one and if you buy one make sure you buy an insurance with it.
