Phone provided by Samsung for review.
S8 talk text is absolute garbage.
I use this feature all the time With less expensive phones and it worked amazingly but the system on this phone is complete trash I constantly have to erase and retype the stupid system makes up its own words.
My S8 stopped working all of a sudden just after 8 months, that too with very minimal usage. I have never installed or played any games in it, the only Apps I used most are WhatsApp, Instagram, Gmail, Chrome Browser and Google Maps. It didn't have any physical damage. I have immersed it in water only once and that too for under a minute. The only issue I had been facing was, the ear speaker was very low for the last few weeks, it was too low that I had to use headphone or put on speaker.
On Mar 14, 2018, while I was just browsing Instagram, the App all of a sudden stopped working and automatically got closed.
And when I tried to open it again after a couple of minutes, the phone got switched off and that was it, it never switched back on after it. It used to happen earlier, the phone used to get hanged and would restart automatically, but this time it never restarted back. I tried all the options, tried to connect it to a charger, there was no sign of charging, the red led light was not on. Then I tried to hold the volume down and power button together for more than 30 secs, still, it was not turning on.
Thank God this happened during the warranty period, so Samsung agreed to get it fixed after I ship it to them. My Samsung S3 which I bought in 2012 still works good and I'm using it now until I get back my S8. The only issue is the battery is draining very fast, I even tried to get a replacement battery, but it was of no help either. The phone still runs on Android Kitkat, that might be the cause of the battery draining. Now I'll be having a second thought to go again for a Samsung phone going forward. :-(
I’ve use the s8+ more than a year now “exynos version(SM-G955FD)”. The phone stutter and hang a lot, but after Oreo update it work really well, I’m really impressed, everything you do it’s really snappy. The thing that I want to complain are: 1. Battery life is at most average around 3 hours screen on time. 2. The speaker is suck. 3. The fingerprint sensor position, well after use it for a while I’m kind of get used to it, but still not an ideal position. 4. It stutter!!! To be exact when you scroll like in Facebook( it getting worse when you scroll inside the page) and in the internet(its the problem of all Samsung phone anyway). Well except those issues the phone still perform really well, unlike the previous Samsung phone I use before. If you can live with those problem above I’m differently recommend the s8+ instead of s9+. It’s a lot cheaper now compare to the new s9+ and trust me it performs really really well.
To the person reading this, you are who God says you are. You are made in the image of God, The Creator of heaven and earth. Because of His love for you and I, He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for you so that you can have everlasting life and not go to hell. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, invite Him into your heart/life today. Wherever you are, He can hear you for He is everywhere. Remember Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God. Jesus loves you sooooo much so that He gave His life for you. You are valuable...You are loved.
You know what annoys me about reviewers nowadays they tell you whats good and bad about the flagship noting what's bad is not a big deal whereas on a mid range they tell you good and bad noting how it's still not good enough you know they get paid to kiss Samsung or apples ass
Samo..samo... Come on samsung!!! Get your shit right!! Give us some NEW shit! Like put speakers on the front of the phone and in the back so if we are watching a video we can hear it right in front of us and in back so when we bump music. Take out the head phone jack and make the headphone jack connection same as the charger port and with a splitter cable so if we are charging the phone we can still have the headphone jack connected. And make the wireless charger work when we have the case on. Its dumb to take my case off when i charge it.
Shit battery life. Samsung purposely heat phones up after a while, slow charging and quick battery draining!
Had 3 samsungs they all done that! Just how apple admitted slowing phones down samsung are fucking up phones for more business!
Rather get a cheap chinese phone
Samsun needs to learn from this and MAKE THE FUCKING BIXBY BUTTOM MAPPABLE!! you know how awesome that would be to have the button mapping be supported by the developers from the get go? Instead of having to get a 3rd party solution that gets broken after a few months. It annoys me that they are fighting this so hard. So they not see how cool it could be>?
Okay not so great battery, bad fingerprint location, terrible speakers but guess what the s9 fixes all of that and ads an insane camera that can compete with with the pixels 2 and maybe 3 . Now you can call the s9 the ultimate smartphone especially the s9+
-better performance. 6gb ram
-better camera. telefoto lens
-bigger screen 6.2
-better battery 3500 mah
I think I'm going with these s9+
Not to mention that it still has
Fast wireless charging
And a Headphone jack!
That's easily a phone that can last 4 years, honestly, it's insane.
Well seems tat the battery is the same as last year and updates are still a samsung problem, maybe the s10 will fix the battery issue and be part of project treble which makes the phone easily updated. apart from that there is noting to complain about ,it a perfet phone with not the best battery and software updates
