I've had my S8 since its launch in April of this year and I'm still impressed with how flawlessly it works. I'm usually pretty clumsy with my phones and I've managed to keep it in mint condition despite a few minor drops. I'd recommend this phone to anyone provided they are not dead set on having a stock Android OS.
There's been a lot of reasonable complaints about the fingerprint sensor, personally I haven't ever had a problem with it. It only took me a day to get a real sense of the placement, so I don't smudge the camera trying to find it. One of my only gripes is the battery. I'm a heavy user so I can't get it to last a full day for me, but I get that Samsung had to take it easy after the Note 7. It makes up for it by charging extremely quickly.
All the new phones coming out (even the Note 8) haven't really swayed me too much. I'm really happy with my regular sized Galaxy S8 and expect to get a full 2 years out of it before my next upgrade. Highly recommended. :)

Last night, from 100% it went down to only 96% overnight. Someone told me to just give the new software update a few days to stabilize and reindex all the files in my cellphone, and that the battery consumption will go back to normal. Yes, it really did so, no more battery drain problem now, the latest S8 software upgrade from Samsung is all good!

I can fully understand why someone would stay loyal to Apple or Android, an example would be if they had invested hundreds or thousands of £,Â€,$'s etc in Apps, then the most logical choice for some would be to stick with I.O.S or Android so that they dont lose out financially. It can come down to something as simple as that.

JesseRE, 14 Oct 2017Something is not clear about the micro SD storage. Is it only available on the dual SIM model ... moreYou can use a microSD card in both models, but please note that Dual SIM phones typically make you choose between using the second SIM slot for a second SIM, or for a microSD card. You can't use both.

The information out there seems to indicate that you are incorrect that S8 and S8 Plus sales are "very low" compared to S7s but correct me I'm wrong (please provide source(s)) appreciated.
I would hazard a guess that the Free Gear VR Headset and controller Offer is more likely to be a promotion to coincide with the release of IPhone 8.
The latest figures (Q3)I believe are out at the end of this month according to gsmarena. But....
"The company stated that the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ had outsold the Galaxy S7 series in almost all regions" "Interestingly enough, the Galaxy S8+ accounted for more than half of the sales of the duo"

I think u are the one that is child lollll.... since u talk about screen resolution.... lets talk screen resolution.... I never recommend buying iPhone 8 with... 720 p screen... I myself using iPhone plus version and I more prefer plus version 1080p now for me I still focus on spec the higher resolution the better..... I recommend my friend/all to buy plus version or iPhone x due to higher resolution and one more thing more important a BIGGER battery loll....
bro I think u need watch ur friend iPhone screen or in istore...?? never? even though it is 720p but it is very beautiful screen when watching movie or music video... may be I don't know the reason .I think may be because of its more high quality clearer glass, higher back light , or small screen just 4.7 inch...... but from the video it is comparable to qhd (1440) display by Samsung.... may be that's what its called by retina display... meaning very beautiful to human eye... this happen since iPhone 5s.... y I says so because u may says its not even 720 ...even worse ... but for a 4 inch phone 640p screen already very beautiful and called retina display because most 4 inch phone only 480 resolution... so apple already study... for ach inch what resolution is enough to be called retina display most beautiful n sharp seen by human eye... and they increase the back light n use better glass that make it display one of the best...may be some saying is correct I need to admit .... higher tha retina display is not needed as human eye cannot see the difference...that's y 4k display is not needed as human eye cant detect the difference.... but I too hope can get sony xz premium with 4k hdr display one day lollll

by the way if u say vr I think of ps4 vr that can connect to my ps4... still not buy yet.... I think for game ps4 vr is much more game available.... but when I try in store the display seems not good n sharp as Samsung vr... may be due to 720 screen or I don't know the seeting as I try in store.... sony please upgrade to vr2 with 1080 or higher resolution..... waiting lollll....
by the way, u have lot of Samsung vr source.... ?? where you get it? mind to share??? loll... also and option since Samsung vr is cheaper....
