After the Oreo update this phone works even smoother. I had this phone for almost 3 months and I'm really happy with it. Not even one problem has occurred and I hope I will keep it for 4-5 years from now. It's quite fragile and I recommend a good case though. I got a led case and it's good for me.
I got the oreo update few days ago (Hungary). at the moment it SEEMS the battery consumptions is improved and the notification panel is also better, however they took away few useful features:
- the home icons have frame, and i cannot turn it off (i turned it off, but nothing happened and yes i tried to turn it off and on again)
- I cannot turn off the unnecessary icons in the status bar (like alarm, optimized performance)
- i cannot just click on the HDR mode to turn it off or set auto, i have to do it in the menu...
i hope they will fix these soon.

I've been a week using s8. So far im satisfied with this phone. Great display, superb camera, fast performance, no lag in gaming, loud sound. Bixby perform well too, i could use her to helping me dialing number while im driving.
One thing i should asking u guys, is it my just phone or u all feel the same that battery life isnt so long? I compared it to my a5 (2016) that have longer battery life. It last a day on normal use, but when i using it for heavy game like asphalt.. Well.. need to charging it couple times 😅

Any issues on the S8? I like to get one. But then many users reported of slowing down. Wanted to get a decent waterproof smartphone.

I say use your phone for 2 years and always buy last years model that way you can find some good deals buying it used from all the desperate people that want the latest model and are willing to cut a deal just to get rid of the old one. If you wait a little you save up allot.
Android Oreo on the S8 in the UK this morning, just letting you know incase you dont

You have only just bought it. Eh?
hey guys I got a 2 month used S8 for Rs 37000 (570$). I know if i take care of the mobile it can last 3-4 more years and then when I go in used market for the latest Galaxy phone I would have to spend around Rs 40000 (615$). So thats roughly 800 to 1100 Rs per month based on 3-4 years of usage.
What I was thinking is if I sell my mobile after using for 1 year i would still fetch somewhere around 20-25K and I have to put 10-12K more for next used Galaxy (mostly S9) and in this way I can have almost new phones every year and all the galaxy flagships.
What do you think do any of you do this or you all keep your phone for as long as possible.

Permanent screen burn from the clock, and I didn't have always on display a... moreYou must've had some bad luck getting a faulty unit since mine is going strong after 1 year of continuous usage but i do not use AOD since i knew that could result in burn int since the screen is amoled. Bixby button doesn't bother me at all and battery life is more than on some devices and lasts me a whole day plus with fast charge it doesn't really matter since half an hour on the charger and i have over 30%. Like i said i've been using it for 1 year and didn't notice any slow downs even before i updated to oreo and did a hard reset which actually improved the speed of the device and now it feels buttery smooth with 0 hangs. I had the S7 before the S8 and the only thing i'm missing is the front fingerprint scanner and aspect ratio but i don't mind the S8 at all especially in terms of performance. Maybe you were just unlucky and got a faulty device.
