Since the phone is in a cover and you can't see the back of the phone, I really wasn't very fussed over the colour. I initially had battery discharge problems after downloading an update but I took it back to Samsung and they re set the software. Now it is perfect. Beautiful phone.

Btw I was just telling,If someone dont care then dont even care of commenting on my comment. :'-).

Furthermore you have to wait a couple of days for the phone because of this 'technical' issue. All of this is not your fault it's theirs.
Who knows they may even give you something as a goodwill gesture e.g credit a voucher maybe even a VR headset if you are really lucky. I would but its up to you but at the end of the day the worst they can do is not to give you anything. If you were one of my Customers I would certainly sort you out with something as you have paid enough for a product and so far it's not met your expectations and caused you inconvenience, I would also want you to buy many other products from me in the future.

Such a shame you have to wait a couple of days though I feel your pain, must be a frustrating for you when you just want to play about with your new toy, I would fee exactly the same. Thanks for letting me know how you got on, appreciated, and was thinking about you and hoping it would go ok for you. I''m sure you will absolutely love the phone as I do.
1 or 2 more sleeps to go :D
AnonD-706286, 09 Oct 2017Until it won't fall down and break the whole glassy structure !Tempered glass and a solid case will somehow do the trick,man.
Unless you are a very clumsy person.

(But because of some technical problem, it will take 1 or 2 days. This is horrible)
S8 User, 09 Oct 2017Well the S8 is a beautiful phone to look at its design is simply inadequate. The curved edges ... moreThats actually not true at all.Curves are not useless.Also there is mostly all Smartphone has risk of hitting ground and broke.Like Apple:Iphone 8\8+ has risk of Damage cuz it has all glass back and front,Also Iphone X has screen that can break easily just by one drop ur whole money has no benefit.I'm not hating Apple or hating anyone or somehing,But I'm trying to be honest with you.Also Samsung Google Pixlel and Apple is best brand for smartphones.Btw dont sell or leave ur S8,Just keep it for few weeks and u will satisfy with it.Btw Good Luck for what u do!Also tel me in the comments. :-)
S8 User, 09 Oct 2017Well the S8 is a beautiful phone to look at its design is simply inadequate. The curved edges ... moreThe award winning S8 critically acclaimed and feature rich phone is much much more than a beautiful phone to look at.
Did you break yours? (If indeed you ever have owned one)
Which phone would you recommend?
Well the S8 is a beautiful phone to look at its design is simply inadequate. The curved edges are truly unnecessary. And it exposes the phone to a greater risk of damage. Sometimes we have to think about function over form. Samsung did just the opposite with this phone. I will likely change to a different brand After experiencing this phone.
no name, 09 Oct 2017hehe,Lol.Btw they claimed that on S8 there is problem on actual message app (As users said).B... moreI looked at the thread on which that article that you posted was based upon and there are very limited reports of this problem. It looks like a problem with some people using third party texting apps.
scorpio, 09 Oct 2017Perhaps the actual message was the headache and not the phone......lolhehe,Lol.Btw they claimed that on S8 there is problem on actual message app (As users said).But i dont see anywhere someone experienced that.Btw going for S8 midnight black very soon.Which colour u having?
Best phone at the moment...until S9 !
Love it, cameras and speaker specially great.
