AngryLion, 05 Aug 2017do you guys recommend me to buy this one or s7e? is there any different I don't waste my money. You can buy S7 Edge as it is powerful enough. Camera is almost the same. Battery life is a bit better.
Sunn, 05 Aug 2017Still difficult to choose btw s8 and u11 Not really if you consider price... U11 is now 750 euros and s8 is 520... i preff u11 but for price i would go for S8

I have been dealing with RAM since the days of 32 pin SIMMs. Nuff said.
Don't talk to me about a sensible opinion. Save those words for yourself.
When running apps are killed they don't always re-open because if I clear RAM using the Smart Manager the memory consumption gets less and it stays less for the most part and even if it increases it's not by a lot...certainly not to the high point it was before I ran the cleaner.
For the record Marshmallow is the best thing that happened to my S5 Octa-core. No lagging unless I have lots of apps and huge apps open and even then it doesn't always lag either regardless. 99.9% of the time apps doesn't close UNLESS I close them. My S5 have no heating issues and no memory draining issues and it charges all the way to 100% each and every time. My S5 is as perfect as can be.

[deleted post]Who speak about xperia? There are many superb phones and much better than this crap. HTC U11 is better example.

It would lag like hell sometimes, it would overheat and close apps, it would not charge past 74% etc etc... So that lag is not because of a low amount of free RAM, this is not Windows OS [the PC one], this is Android..
You don't have the faintest idea of what I'm talking about to form a sensible opinion, you should do your research and learn something instead of living in your illusion of knowledge..
Samsung includes an Optimiser which has the option to kill running apps... Not to clean your RAM.. It doesn't touch the OS background apps and services that are running and taking up space on the RAM.. On the S8's version of the Optimiser you can kill some of the background running processes and services but they just start right back up.. so you end up achieving nothing apart from draining your battery a tad bit by doing so...
I got the s8 exynos version and it's super fast couldn't be more happy with the device. This trolling about the device being super fragile is totally pathetic. The phone is as durable as any other device out there. If your worried about damaging the device get a case problem solved. But don't be put off by people (fanboys) who have no idea and have no intention of purchasing this great device. It is well built and there are a lot of videos putting the device through durability tests with a positive outcome. I use mine at work and have young kids who have gotten hold of my device and have been quite rough with it, that's good enough for me. Yes there may be a couple of devices that can open an app fraction off a second quicker but for what else the device offers like wireless charging, water resistance, excellent infinity display, good battery life, excellent camera and more the s8 stands out as one of the best made this year as agreed by most, if not all reviewers that have used this device. Hope this helps with people that have been put off by fake reviews and opinions of people that have not used the device.
Samsung Need to change Touchwiz, is the big problem in Samsung phone ..
S8 is the slowest phone of among snapdragon 835 phones and it also extremely fragile and is like a Beta testing phone with silly fingerprint sensor

I disagree with you. I have a S5 running Marhmallow and once the used RAM reaches 1.40, 1.45 or 1.50 there's a considerable lag. I always try to free RAM as much as possible using Smart Manager which usually result in my phone moving snappy. I don't buy that talk about unused RAM is wasted RAM. The more RAM that's free, the faster the overall speed is. After all, if unused RAM is wasted RAM why would Samsung included a RAM cleaner in Smart Manager. Why would they have also included a CLEAR RAM option in previous Galaxy phones dating back to the S1?
Amim, 04 Aug 2017I was woundring is there a way to Hide The Apps so that only you know were they are?Use a third app available on playstore there are plenty, or simply hide it from the setting
Clearly you people don't know how RAM is managed by Android... the readout of 1.6GB that you're seeing is the amount of RAM free at that moment... Android uses as much RAM as it requires to give you a snappy experience[I.e caching] so the amount of used RAM that your device is telling you is being used is not permanently occupied by the OS... When you open multiple applications that need more than the indicated free RAM available, your device frees up that space for your applications to utilise... So don't get worried by the fact that you have very little free RAM available because that readout is meaningless.... Unused RAM is wasted RAM in Android... 4GB is more than plenty
Galaxy S8 free space of Ram Maximum 1.6GB without Running any party app. I saw S7 has 2GB of free space in ram without running any app.. 2 new android version have to come to S8 .. will this get lag after it's last version update??
Bought a new galaxy s8. seriously regreting now.
1.Too fragile. Within few days scratches are visible on both sides(whats d use of gorilla gls 5)
2.No official tempered gls. Third party tempered gls killed touch sensitivity, literally i am hitting on the screen now to type
3. battery sucks
Never gonna buy a samsung product again😡
Just bought an S8 for 700 Â€ including case, wireless charger and 2 screen protectors.
Love it, nice upgrade from my S6 edge. 64 Gb internal + 64 Gb card gives me 128 Gb, more than enough...Speaker is very loud too. Huge screen obviously very fragile, but i always take good care of my phones, even without any protection. Best phone at the moment.
