The s8 is crap. Bixby didn't work when the phone first came out. And now that Bixby is working it has these unwarranted pop up notifications on the Bixby home screen. Samsung lies more than Trump! The next phone that comes out with either Echo, or Watson technology will be revolutionary. And at this point SAMSUNG AIN'T IT. FLAT OUT!!! Great reporting dbrand, I concur with your video.
One thing bad I found out was you better keep a cover on it 'cause you can easily scratch the back of the phone. Also I dropped it one day from about 2 feet and cracked the back of it. I took my phone out of my Otter Box, and laid it down, I scuffed the back of it with out realized it. So be careful. It is a good phone. I kinda wish I waited so I could of got the Note8. But it is a good phone.
I have a oneplus 3T, but I'm considering buying this since a lot of US based network service companies are changing their frequency bandwidths and have rendered my current phone incompatible. I got the oneplus 2 months ago, fml, who can relate?
Great price on Amazon now! :)
I’ve had my s8 for a while now and everything was good until my phones touch screen started messing up. Super unresponsive even through resetting. It would lag all the time and then freeze up . So I traded it in. Really disappointed , I’ve had a Samsung since the 6 .
Android police 👉 the text keyboard sucks on the👉 Mic🗣🎙 the words don't come out right on point like the s7 s6 s5 pls try it out and if u can give me some feedback on how the fix this problem pls tell me ASAP now Y should I have to get and another keyboard for a$ 850.00 phone that Supposed to be on top of the line s8 plus even Though I like the thumb keyboard it have split keys on it and it's more Easier to type in everything else is on point but you have to pay for that 1I think is like $4 now but like I said for a 850 phone shouldn't have no problems it line buying a Mercedes Benz off the lot the crying I have no problem till later on but not as soon as you get it you know what I mean so check the keyboard out for urself and let me know 👌🏾👍🏾🤙🏾🤘🏾✌🏾😁😎
So stoked about Samsung having my thumbprint stored on the interwebz for the rest of forever, accessable to anyone determined to get it. And you best believe that when the NSA asks Samsung for those prints in bulk, they'll be more than happy to fork every single detail about you. Much like the vast majority of technology and telecom companies who store every detail of your life they can get. They pretty much know everything about you. Probly have the details of the last shit you took. We tell our phones everything, but I get the feeling that they can't keep a secret for shit.
I’ve heard people saying android phones such as the galaxy phones lag over time is this true? I really want to buy an android phone such as the s8 but this is the only thing holding me back. I’m an iOS user currently. My last device was a s5 and it did lag and have issues after a while. If this is the case and is it a easy fix?
My biggest issues after 6 weeks of out-of-the-box use: Lags, almost daily crashes, apps not working properly (GMail, Messages, WhatsApp, Musicplayer) and the dramatically worse battery life.
Had to go back to iPhone.
Will give Android another shot once my iPhone doesn't do the trick anymore (probably 3-4 years from now).
Buy Galaxy #S8 with cheapest price in amazon.
Samsung can further improve their design by not having the side buttons protruding. It kinda ruins the sleekness of the phone. Do it like Apple where they indent the area so that it hides the button but still easy to press.
In the past I have always hated Samsung phones, I hated having an actual button on the bottom of the phone. So for the past few users I have been an LG & Google nexus user. But after seeing all these videos on the S8, I am highly impressed. I guess I am going to be buying a new phone soon, looks nice as fuck.
PSA: I bought a Galaxy S8+ and the whole screen was defective with a reddish tint, software was unable to fix the problem. Samsung did not fix the problem as their warranty repair company they use would refuse to replace defective screen on three attempts.
GET YOUR GALAXY S8 HERE
I love this phone for every reason EXCEPT I hate when you're in messages and call someone by accident...Happens all the damn time and is incredibly annoying. The Bixby button can get annoying, especially while running, but otherwise I love this phone.
Holy fuck d brand is on every mobile video! I don't get it why would anyone want to cover that shiny back for an ugly wall paper looks so tacky. You know these channels are collecting those kick backs commission from d brand
I just got Galaxy S8 on 8/27/2017 and the mic stopped working on 8/27/2017. I have to use the headset to talk I went to Samsung website it it seem like about 87 other people are complaining about it too. Beware.
Bartosz Olszewski so that way your protect you 600 dollar plus device and it doesn't shatter into a million peicies when you drop it/it falls off the table/out of ur pocket ect.... I can't belaive this is even a real question....lmao
why would you buy a case for S8? I don't get those people. like there are tons of other thick and ugly phones for way cheaper that offer same performance so why would you put a case on it if it ruins the look, which is like the main selling point..
I was super hesitant about the Bixby feature, but I've grown to like it quite a bit. Using Bixby is easy and more efficient than Google assistant. It needs work of course, but I have no doubt Samsung is already working on 3rd party app support.
