scorpio, 25 Aug 2018Sorry Dominique I really thought that you were spreading mischief because my phone is so good.... moreI did and the problem recurred after a week. So I traded the unit for a different brand and totally eliminated the problem.
i had a few Samsung phones but after the s8 i will never buy another one, Samsung needs to realise that everyone has a phone for a different purpose and mine is business, this phone doesn't even belong in the business arena, everytime you do an update that is forced upon you the phone is stuffed, things like a double lock screen and having to swipe it like 50 times to back out of a simple call or sms because of all the crap notifications that pop up and whole lot more that i cant remember, but now the latest no sms notification tone and appears nothing can be done about it, bit hard when you run a business and your heads down tail up trying to get work done and rely on notification tones from customers or even family in an emergency not to mention i have spent hours in total that i don't have to try fix every time its updated, what a pile of rubbish just like the I phone, its my phone i want control over it not Samsung and its not like they are cheap, nah im going the new nokia, give that a try as samsungs phones no longer suit my needs.

Anonymous, 20 Aug 2018same problem here. very annoying... need to send phone to warranty? not expected this from Sa... moreWhen you get the blurry rear camera just need to double tap on the middle of the screen and that will fix it.
Hello guys, please can you help me, i want to buy phone, i have 2 choices. Samsung galaxy s8 or Huawei p20. Can you tell me witch is better?
Tahmid Faiyaz, 12 Aug 2018I'm using Samsung Galaxy S8 last 4-month. Its pretty good for performance but problem is dust ... moreYes it is. I used mine in water multiple times. And u can clean it with a dam cloth or any other way ppl usually clean their phones
scorpio, 24 Aug 2018Absolute rubbish comment. The phone is flawless and the camera first class. If you have a prob... moreI bought it from a SAMSUNG store and if you want to prove it for yourself, just go into S8 users' forums. Do you know that no other than Samsung accepted this problem right after they launched the S9?
Here's a sample of a user's issue:
S8 camera focus issue
My wife and I both received our S8s yesterday.
Her phone has an issue with the rear facing camera.
The focus seems to be stuck at about 30cm.
Anything further away is just a blur.
What to do?
We've tried the clear cache and memory solution that seemed to be a fix for a similar S7 camera issue, and it's not resolved the problem.
Dominique, 23 Aug 2018Camera is always experiencing "blurring" problem.Absolute rubbish comment. The phone is flawless and the camera first class. If you have a problem go to your dealer. It may be that you have a copy phone and not a genuine s8.
All sensors are not working anymore. no GPS, no light sensor, no proximity sensor... I will send today the phone to warranty but not expected this from Samsung S series. The phone is not even 1 year old. very disappointing...
sdzubair, 18 Aug 2018Hey GSMARENA please help me,I got August security update last week after updating to this I ha... moresame problem here. very annoying... need to send phone to warranty?
not expected this from Samsung S line.
scorpio, 08 Aug 2018Your s8 should have a world wide warranty so depending on how old it is you may still have a b... moreDo all S8 got world wide warranty?
In India and Middle East Asia they don't offer world wide warranty.
samsung user, 07 Aug 2018when can i get android p with my s8?or not on the list again just like you other s devices tha... moreIts not true. All flagship device of S series got minimum two major updates.
Same will be happen with S8 too. It will definitely get Android P. But you already know how fast is Samsung for rolling out major OS updates...;)
S8 8.0, 13 Aug 2018Anyone having an issue with battery when it comes to 14% seconds ago it comes to 0% and turns off?Never encountered situation like this.
Place the phone inside raw rice and keep it for at least 24 hours.
My S8 is not even 1 year old and ALL SENSORS GOT BROKEN !!! no GPS, no light sensor, no proximity sensor...
I read lots of reports of users on forums wiht same problem on S8, S8 Plus, Note 8, so is not a isolated case.
This is really embarrassing for a company like Samsung and a phone from S line.
It seems that Samsung quality actually does not exist. remember episode with Note 7.
I WILL NOT BUY A SAMSUNG PHONE AGAIN! neither me or my family and I will tell to all friends how bad Samsung phone are from the point of view of reliability over time.
