I have a Galaxy S8. It's not a bad phone, but it is annoying AF. Accidental pushes galore, Bixby is shit, the phone is slow to switch to horizontal view. It's hard to copy/ paste ( for me). I'll probably go back to iPhone next year.
Regan Havens (1 month ago)
My issue with the edge screen is that its very hard to protect. On the S7 edge, there weren't any cases that protected the screen, and screen protectors didn't cover the screen securely around the edges, so if you dropped the phone, you were pretty much screwed. Unless they've done something radically different with the edge screen for the S8, I expect it to be just as vulnerable no matter what accessories you buy to protect it.

The Galaxy S8 is a terrible phone. Apple iPhones are superior devices in EVERY way!
Christopher Stevenson (3 months ago)
The phone I had prior to this phone was a Nexus 5X which is probably considered a utilitarian and quite outdated phone. Considering this should have been a huge upgrade, even though I didn't want a new phone (I water damaged my Nexus and needed an immediate replacement), I can say this phone isn't at all as great as I thought it should be. It doesn't seem all that much faster. The Bixby thing bothers me, accidently pressing that button or swiping into it. Maybe Bixby is some great feature that people use, but I'm not interested in it, and even after disabling it, it still gets in the way and the process is running. Apps seem to crash all the time, even with the latest updates for the phone. One app that constantly crashes is Google Maps. There are others but I won't list them, there are a lot. Though I will be getting a case, the phone has a super low coefficient of friction. It slides off my lap in the car, slides all over the seat, ... given the chance or slight nudge of momentum this phone will move around a lot. While being comfortable to hold, it is by far the easiest phone to drop I've ever had. I never had to restart my Nexus on a daily basis to get things to work right. I have to restart this phone daily to make things operate correctly. Now, my phone is a from T-mobile. Perhaps if I had the chance to buy the phone on its own without a contract so the phone didn't have all the T-Mobile bloatware, it may be a different story. I needed a phone right away, so I got this from my provider. Anyway, it just doesn't seem to be that great. Samsung seems to have a lot of proprietary programming on the OS. The nexus was just a cut and dry straight up android phone. This, not so much. Just my opinion, but this phone is not all it's cracked up to be. Ohh and one very disappointing thing this phone does is, it gets screen burn-in easily. If you use the same app constantly, like maps, it will absolutely leave ghost images on the screen. Just like early plasma televisions. I know there are apps that will fix this, it's not permanent, unlike the old plasma tvs, but really? I was kind of stunned to have this happen. And with no Samsung app to fix it, when they know it will happen, that's pretty disappointing.

No offense but you are stupid as hell if you actually like the curved edges. I don't care if it looks cool, when it makes my phone unfunctional in so many ways then it is not worth it. I still accidently press things - this problem is improved when I have a case on my phone. And worst, my screen is not responsive to touch almost at all when things inevitably end up on the curved edges, particularly when I am playing games on my phone this is a huge problem for me. Not to mention my finger often slides down the edges, part of this is thanks to the weird ass aspect ratio of this phone. Like wtf As for the fingerprint scanner, yes it's annoying where it is. I can't reach it that well, it's too small to respond to my print half the time.. it would have been better put underneath the back camera, and made round not skinny and rectangular. It's faster for me to use my pincode to unlock than it is to use the finger print reader, that's how retarded the reader is. Don't even get me started on the fact that this phone is encased entirely in glass.. seriously? Overall, I really think Samsung super missed the mark design wise here. Don't get me wrong, it is beautiful to look at. But in many ways, the design of this phone makes it less functional as a phone for an everyday person. This was my first Galaxy, and I probably won't buy another one. I wish I had gone with the Pixel instead. As someone who used the Nexus line for a long time, I wanted to change things up but it didn't work out for me. Google makes things more clean and streamline and they win more points for having the best voice assistant and for not including a shit ton of bloatware. Samsung made things too complicated and idiotic just to seem cool and pretty.

None of this is a problem. My problem is my phone pauses every 5mins no matter what I'm watching or listening to. Also when I'm watching a video on fb it keeps playing back to the beginning, while the audio plays on normally. And nothing is wrong with my Wi-Fi or internet...

S8 still have the wifi bug. WILL NOT STAY CONNECTED TO WIFI. I am a 30+ years in IT. I am raising hell with samsung and Xfinity. the voice to text, you can fix, change it to google. I sit under a GOOD access point, phone will not connect automatically and will not stay connected after you manually connect. Which for me is important to save $60 a month, cause I do not want mobile date, it costs money...I have to work for money. Anyway, i figure this is programmed into the phones to not stay on wifi (it lowers sales of mobile data) very sad. ALSO, can't figure out how to send a video that does not look like a 1950 TV. sure, can send video, looks completely unacceptable, and I am easy to please.

still holding on to my S7 ... I don't really like the rear sensor.. and yea, if you look at the battery comparison charts from Samsung, the processor sucks up more battery time, up to an hour in some cases... it's on the site. and come on dude, a quick ten minute charge? shouldn't have to do that, i never have battery issues on my S7 but family has them all the time on their S8's ... but the prices.. it's not that bad, not compared with Apple, who still think they own the market share and the most technological device on the market at $1000 on up ... can't wait for the S9, the rumor mill is already trending on some sites .. some with facts others wishful thinking.. will get face tech, but still get the finger pad, back or front, oh well ... i'll adapt.. just not yet .. dual cams, well... idk, they say the S9 appears to have them, then again, they said the same with the S8 in early showings.. who knows, but you're correct, Samsung has the best camera out there.

The S8 does not have the best camera.  It sucks even compared to the iPhone 5C's camera.  I had a S7 and that is why I sold it (that and the crappy speaker sound).  Samsung is a major fail in phones.  It should stick to making components.
S8+ is now 650 euro's, if the price is falling so fast, it will be free for christmass :/

Otter box case helps with finger placement. Edges are sick. Battery lasts a long time with juice defender, which disables unused apps' data usage. As for the camera, I'm sure some of us could afford to chill with pictures of every damn thing.

Thanks for your thoughts. I just received my S8 , but had not seen the S8+ until your video. I currently have been using the S6 and have gotten used to the size and think the S8 may be too small for me. I am thinking about trading for the S8+ I have not set up or even turned on the S8 as yet. I was wondering your thoughts on the difference between the S8 and the S8+ , is the size the only difference or is there other things to consider? Thanks

I still feel like the removable battery and it being waterproof would always be more logical. Trying to find a place to recharge or having to carry a large clunkey external charger is just rediclous compaired to a few thin batteries you may not have to replace and are still are able to recharge the phone.

If your device is exposed to natural or artificial light for too long then it can very hot. This is a simple solution that you should bear in mind whenever you use your device. Find a cool place to store your device. Don’t Use The Phone While It Is Charging We know that the Samsung S8 is a great phone but try to give the phone a break especially when you are charging it.

Close Running Apps Another solution is to close applications that are open. If you are not using open applications then close it. Try not to overwork your device. You can also perform a soft reset to close open applications running in the background. Press and hold the Power button (located on the right edge of the device). Tap Restart. Tap Restart again to confirm. If the device is unresponsive/frozen, press and hold the Power button for approximately 10 seconds or until the device power cycles. Reduce Brightness You can dim display on Samsung S8 to reduce overheating. Please follow the steps below to reduce brightness.
