It's as smooth as stock Android specially since Samsung let's you put apps to sleep out of the box ..your S8 should put apps to sleep automatically but you can choose apps to be on the always sleeping list in the " device maintenance" > " Battery" section
I have the galaxy s8 on the telus network and the battery drain is 4-5% per hour when screen is off and I'm not using the phone. It's fresh from factory reset with nothing syncing. When I put the phone on hspa it drains 0.4% per hour. My s7 Edge drains 1% per hour in same situation. Maybe its the new Snapdragon modem and 4X4 Mimo the issue....I created a thread about it at in the Telus forum : https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility-Devices/Galaxy-s8-LTE-battery-drain/m-p/75185#M9188
I'm really interested in trying this beauty, but the pull of the iPhone is strong. Losing iMessage is a real concern (at least in the States), but I'm also concerned about software updates. Apple is just so good at supporting their devices, and it really seems like Samsung forgets about their flagships after a year (maybe that's changed?).
I'm curious what owners of the S8 say, especially if they're coming from an iPhone.
I think part of the reason why the FS scanner was placed there is for the design to make things to look in line and clean. You really think samsung didn't think of it? I mean every other phone that has the back FS scanner placed it below the camera. Its too common, Samsung went for it and made it in line with the camera and flashlight which does look cool. I have an S8, I have no problems with the FS scanner placing. My advise? don't get the S8, because I wanna have the bragging rights alone while you sit there and wondering with probably the G6 or OP5 😂 😂 😂
looked into c9 pro but the camera doesn't have ois so choose a9 pro. although my comment doesn't related with s8 (sorry guys) but I do like the next version of s or note series instead of Samsung will improve the finger print sensor later.
Everyone says they like stock android and how smooth it feels, while its true, I loved the pixel switching from s7, going from pixel to S8 is so much better. Stock android lacks many integrated features that third party launchers or apps dont provide as well. Its like buying a basic toyota and buying leather wraps and putting a heated ballon under ur seat....doesnt work
Closing in on the end of the contest! I'd love to win! My V10 has given me bootloop issues the past few months and it is definitely time to upgrade! This would definitely help a broke college student & fellow phone junkie!! Good luck to everyone!! If only we could all win! Lol
Tho i have to say i do not agree with your oppinion on the placement of the fingerprint sensor. THAT IS THE NATURAL POSITION OF THE FINGER and samsung did a great job placing it there. If the sensor would have been under the camera , you would have to strugle moving your finger to the left in order to use it .
Mine is by far the S8 Plus. Love the big bright beautiful display. Love the way it looks and feels in my hand. I notice a big difference in performance from the S8 Plus compared to my S7 Edge. Lately my S7 Edge has been Laggy, mostly when I'm updating only a couple apps and watching YouTube, it slows down. Also just found out from other Youtuber I watch. they found out that consumer reports show that the S8 Plus is the best phone this year, then the S8 followed by the S7/S7 edge. All Samsung devices. No iPhones and no mentions of the LG G6. lol
you say the battery is bad but most people don't sit on their phone all day like you do. even on heavy days at work with calling a lot of clients as well as surfing the net and GPS use I get all day easily. I dolnt know if you watch a lot of porn but videos will drain any phone before the end of the day.
Matthew Moniz kudos on your reply lol, squashed my remark while staying calm, well played. BUT, the finger print sensor is annoying on the back, never touch the camera though and the battery seems to be the best to me. To each his own.
+Ben Hill yes that's an ad Telus is running on social media that I got to be part of. I didn't have to include it in the video but I thought it was cool! Plus it's an opportunity for people to see some of the stuff I do outside of YouTube
Watching it on my new galaxy s8+ XD.
Btw even though the position of the finger print scanner is not ideal, you get used to it and personally have no problems to reach the exact location. maybe because of the size/shape if my hands.
when i got my s8 it didn't have all those bloatware nor duplicate applications. so i got to choose what i wanted to install. i guess it differs with the phone subscripition. i am in the philippines by the way. and can i still join the contest? i want an s8+. hehehe! by the way, i am a new subscriber and i love your videos! just what i needed. been looking for videos to encourage me to keep my s8. i have been beating my self up for getting s8 than s8+. i could have waited for a week to get the plus but instead i grabbed the s8 when i needed a larger phone for it's battery life and for a better video and game viewing. whew. but having seen your video made me feel at ease. however, if i get to win an s8 plus or s8 from u, i could give it as a gift to my special someone as a birthday present courtesy of you. hehehe! i'll take care of the shipping!!!! lol
