Question, 15 Nov 2017First of all I'm not having a go at anyone that has had the misfortune of dropping their S8 or... moreSamsung has also produced the S8 Active that is an option for some. Now we could debate whether or not an option should be available for all
please answer honestly if you are thinking "I shouldn't need to put a case on my S8 or S8 Plus, this thing should withstand tumbles and drops" .... Yeah, if you are thinking that..
What other flagship smartphone with the equivalent specs of the S8's on the market, could you drop without fear of any damage?
First of all I'm not having a go at anyone that has had the misfortune of dropping their S8 or S8 Plus phone......I'm not.
What did you expect? I mean C'mon ....... you just have to hold the thing and you get a vibe that this phone could suffer damage if dropped without a case. ...... What did you expect?
Then, if you are going to be parting with many 100's of well earned $'s or £'s on an item that you will be using daily. Would you not do a bit of research before commiting? If you did do a bit of research, then what did that tell you as regards to durability?
If you are looking for a durable phone that you can drop without fear without a case then the S8 is NOT the phone for you...........
ahhh but STOP there is a solution!!!!
Buy a case!!! .. Simple!!.. buy a case!! ..Problem solved!! Putting a case on the phone doesn't mean that you can't take the case off on occasions if you wish to enjoy the phone as it was intended. No.
If you have come here to complain that your S8 or S8's screen has broken after dropping it ....... ..
Why are you NOT blaming the case? .....Yeah.., if you dropped your phone from what most would consider a fairly low height and your phone screen broke AND it was in a case... ...
Please explain :)
Why is your understandable anger/frustration/unhappiness or whatever.. not entirely aimed at the case?
I got this a month a go and I love it. Anything you like doing is going to run smoothly. After a month or so of using it you won't feel as lost
no name, 14 Nov 2017I'm planning between the S8 and Note 8.What do you guys think better?I'm thinking for Note 8 b... morebetter take s8 it's a phone for normal hand user and there is no big differ betw s8 and note 8 only the s pen and dual camera. And even the dual camera in note 8 is blur and it does not look nice the s8 camera is better than note 8 and the battery life in note 8 is very bad with big screen and small battery mah and the note 8 is very costly. I have give my opinion at last its all depend on u.
I use S8, coming from nexus 6P. S8 size suited me better, unlike 6P too big for my taste. however, my s8 screen cracked within a month from a very very low drop. while gorilla 5 s highly scratch resistant, it is extremely brittle, crack like an egg shell.
Tre, 14 Nov 2017Got mine in july for 700 euros, with a wireless charger, two screen protectors and a case...no... moreGlad you're happy same here after coming from the S6 Edge myself. I loved my S6 Edge but don't miss the battery life that's for sure.
Got mine in july for 700 euros, with a wireless charger, two screen protectors and a case...not bad, happy with this beast coming from an S6 edge.
Just received the october security patch in France, about 500Mb...hopefully next one will be Oreo. Love that phone.
I'm planning between the S8 and Note 8.What do you guys think better?I'm thinking for Note 8 because it has more value than the S8,S pen,Dual Camera.Though I have normal hands.Is Note 8 too big?Or is it normal?

AnonD-623808, 13 Nov 2017Did you do anything else with your phone, except dropping it on the floor? :)He experiment with Hammer and he throws on wall to check how durable S8 is.
I have been a loyal Samsung phone user for the past 15 years. I have had no problems with past Samsung phones but my S8 phone turned out to be a lemon. The screen cracked after four months. Then the headphone jack broke. Then, few days later, the screen went blank. I am sending it back to Samsung Repair Center, but they will charge me at least $216 to repair the phone. I am so disappointed with Samsung. After this experience, I am never going to buy a Samsung phone again. What good is it if it looks good? It has to be durable so that it doesn't break.
