Why do Samsung phones lag so bad? Quite disappointed, I don’t recommend it. Especially Bixby. :/ I got the S8 about a month ago, now it’s lagging quite badly, even though I don’t download many things. Is it because of TouchWiz? Need help, thanks.
I've had my galaxy s8 plus now for 6 months as my daily, and i have to agree on the finger print sensor, sometimes it works great and other times not so much!
The retina scanner is frickin fantastic though!!!
My biggest complaint is spending so much for the phone it SHOULD BE ULTRA CONFIGURABLE AND IT IS NOT!!! Themes are okay, but, I will download a theme and possibly 90 percent of the theme I might like but 10 percent I don't and that just ruins the experience!!! Yeah I can go get something else such as substratum or the like but why? I spent a lot of money on the phone and I have to put up with something on a theme I really don't like????? I should be able to configure every aspect of the display and swipes my way, not the way someone thinks I should do. DON'T GET ME WRONG, I THINK THIS IS A GREAT PHONE AND I REALLY REALLY LIKE IT TREMENDOUSLY BUT I'M JUST SAYING!!! Know what I mean?
Thanks a bunch
Bixbie definitely is a No No for me. Samsung always have been keeping me away with the software intrusion. I get they need us to teach their AI ... but it is not fair to pay for that ... Right now AI needs to "learn" more before they charge us (and man, the one who hits the price on AI will win)... but right now I see Samsung as the hardware company and Google as the software provider. If samsung wants to ride the software wagon they need to offer something in exchange until they are in par with Android or IOS. Both of them had something unique at their point in life ... a new kid in town without nothing new (or in exchange for the preference) might end as Microsoft (in phone area) who was the first in the business but did not commit fully with the customer, until it was too late.
Samsung needs to bring back the IR Blaster. I used to control my TV with my Galaxy S6. Then when I upgraded to the Galaxy S8+ I found out the IR Blaster was taken out of the S7 and S8 versions. Which sucks major ass. My phone is by me at all times (and I'm sure this is the case for everybody else who has a cell phone) so having the IR Blaster to control my TV(s) is a major convenience.
I feel like every time I feel like every time I see a phone I think is perfect, there's always a catch. My idea of a perfect phone is:
- Fingerprint Scanner
- Clean, Quick OS without bloatware
- A Headphone jack (it's sad I even have to list this)
- SD Card
- OLED Display
