My review about this phone, using it for about 2 months
Performance (10/10) super snappy phone, really and never lags or anything annoys me.
Battery (9/10) one day usage for daily usage like whatsapp, browsing etc and about 6h for continous usage. But could be perfect if 3500mah
Display (9/10) gorgeous display, visible under sunlight, rich in colours but colours seems oversaturated bcuz I prefer lifelike colors
Camera (10/10) one of the best camera on market right now, daylight was unbeatable even in lowlight
Features (9/10) ip68, headphone jack and microsd card. But it could be perfect if had mil std 810g like Lg phones
Overall, really happy after change from xperia xz, s8 was like 3 times better than xperia xz
sukrsa2004, 18 Jan 2018Have you even read what I have written? Personally I would not go for the screen protector option. Really, I discourage it completely, I really do.
The screen should be enjoyed as it was intended, it's sooo responsive and your finger just glides so effortlessly across its beautiful surface.
My advice is to go for the folio case option. It's the best option in my opinion as it offers good protection to suit most lifestyles but more importantly the case can be removed in an instant to reveal it's full beauty.
Are you sure you want to go the screen protector route? If so, why?
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2018Great device. I really recommend it Have you even read what I have written?
Anyone from India please suggest me screen protector which will not compromise with screen sensitivity.
sukrsa2004, 14 Jan 2018OTG and data transfer to PC using USB working for me.
Thanks for the info, I've done a bit of "follow up"...
I have "dual" OTG USB adaptor, one end "USB-A", to computer, one end "micro-B" to phone.
This works with previous phones and my computer, (checked and double-checked).
Samsung supply two adaptors with the S8, a type "A" to type "C" and a "micro-B" to type "C"
My OTG will NOT work with the "micro-B" to type "C"adaptor, (nor with any of my other "micro-B" to type "C" adaptors).
My OTG WILL work with the type "A" to "micro-B" adaptor supplied.
What I need now, is to use the "A" adaptor to connect to my computer with another "A", to see if the data problem is resolved.
Anyone else had "type C" problems?

Boebus666, 13 Jan 2018Try the OtterBox Strada series case for the S8Good case.

Also I usually always keep my phone in the same pocket, I have this habit even from before. I know that still, drops can happen, so I have book case.
I'm sorry about what happened to you, and yeah, only "active" line of phones are resistant to stuff like that.
I bought the "F" model, more fool me. It does not have OTG , ( at least for flash memory) and won't transfer data to my computer using USB, both essentials services for a top of the range phone.
Samsung, (Billions of dollars profit), just shrug their shoulders.
They drop OTG to pay Bixby? What a rip-off. Bixby is just spyware reporting back to Seoul, retire him now!
S8 User, 13 Jan 2018It depends on how it drops too, and there also comes the fact what kind of protection you have... moreI'm very particular about my phones, always use covers for maximum protection, even at time I was changing my back case to flip case when it all happened but it's history now. I know that when you buy an expensive phone you need to shed extra bucks for it's protection.
