    So this is my first trip outside the Nexus line. I’ve been rocking an N6 and hadn’t upgraded to another Nexus/Pixel because of screen size. Even though there are some things I like better on the N6 (front facing speakers, head phone jack on top) I really like the S8+. Touchwiz or whatever it’s called isn’t bad at all and is easy to use and the phone itself is oh so nice and the camera (OMG!). I do not like the speaker (it’s horrible and can be easily covered), I do not like the head phone jack and charging cord on the bottom because with my dock I can’t use both of them (I’ll have to find another good dock that twists 360 degrees, even though I just got the one i have a couple months ago). I’ve never had a finger print reader so I’m on the fence right now with the placement. I’ve added 3 ways to sense just one finger and that seems to work 97% of the time. Long story short. I never thought I would like anything outside PURE Google but so far I like it.

    • JSo

      Same here. Never liked Samsung phones and never wanted one. But I think I’m going to actually give in this time.

        Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

      what happens when you hit the button on the left side.

  • Me

    Anybody know if they have the unlocked version? I know Sprint is selling the U model

    • seattle tech

      This is the first time ever that samsung galaxy s all have the same model number U for all carriers. It is not unlocked though

      • Me

        Ahh I gotcha

  • MilesH

    Had unfortunate luck today and broke my Nexus6p… I have an upgrade.. Should I go PIxel or S8/S8+? Verizon Grandfather unlimited, but would probably switch into the new Unlimited plan at this point to do it. Pixel pros are the monthly updates and fresh Android.. I have never had a Galaxy phone. Thanks!

    • Me

      Go with the S8 & just throw the Pixel launcher on it.

      • MilesH

        That’s a pretty good idea.. I can also ignore “Bixby” (sp?) and keep using Google Assistant as well. The Nexus6p had a screen size of 5.7″ I believe, and I see the s8 has 5.8″ … Do I have a need for the S8+? Thanks again.

        • Me

          Yeah if you like the size. The S8+ is about the same size, the S8 is closer to the 5X in size. It’s pretty remarkable.

      • Orlando aka Pixel XL
        • Me

          That screen doe….. this the plus?

    • Orlando aka Pixel XL

      Just got the S8+ and I had the pixel XL, the pixel XL is just ugly next to this phone. I owned every Google phone since Samsung Nexus, but with some adjustments, block everything Samsung, block everything att, remove anything else and it’s like my pixel XL with pixel launcher APK..Just no Swype over for Google now and I have the button on home screen for that. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7685dde8cdf3a18a5454aefcccd5fb8d463a9fa44e7f3c8dd9c86f60b59b0bfe.jpg

      • MilesH

        How do you block everything Samsung and (in my case – Verizon)? That may be what I need to do as well!

        • Orlando aka Pixel XL

          Go to settings and apps and disable everything Samsung or att, most of it but not all worked…I also set all default apps to Google..The bixby key is the only thing, I see the developer that remapped it is requiring a ton of permissions, don’t trust that as of now… Eventually, Google now will be there for me..

        • id10terrordfw

          Go to the play store and get Package DIsabler Pro. It will even disable the un-disableable.

  • Lucky Armpit

    Anyone else having any lag/jank issues? Mine was horrible right out of the box, and that’s before loading a single app. I’m really disappointed. US/Verizon version purchased directly from Samsung.

    • Colin Huber

      Video or it didn’t happen.

      • Turb0wned

        LOL, here come the Pixel boys claiming they bought an S8 and it’s lagging already. I’m actually starting to prefer the hardcore Apple guys to the Pixel fanboys.. And yes, I owned a Pixel XL, owned an iPhone 7 Plus and an S8+.

        • Colin Huber

          That was my thought too. I’m on an XL now, and really like it. Never understood the impulse to slam other popular devices. I’m getting an S8+ for my wife tonight because I know it’ll work great for her since she’s already in the Samsung ecosystem with previous devices. No need to make people feel bad for liking phones, man.

          • Me

            Put your XL in the box & take the plus for yourself

          • Colin Huber

            Ok fine.

          • Lucky Armpit

            I’m not slamming “popular devices”, I’m simply asking a question and expressing my disappointment at spending $720 for a top-tier device that has all kinds of jank. Jeez, what’s up with you torch-and-pitchfork guys? I’m looking for help, not slamming the S8.

        • Lucky Armpit

          Um, how about not jumping to conclusions before spouting off at the keyboard? I’m coming from a Nexus 6, not a Pixel.

      • Lucky Armpit

        If that’s what it takes to get some help around here, then fine, I’ll post a video of the skip/stutter when dragging down the Notification Shade and other simple scrolling options that should be “butter-smooth” but are far from it.

        • Colin Huber

          Ok let us know.

    • The Bilderbergers

      Hiding behind your fake account… lame. Accept it, this phone is incredible and you just don’t want to believe it.

  • seattle tech

    The S8 plus is currently the pinnacle of design. I haven’t had this feeling about a new phone since holding my first iphone and galaxy note. All phone will change because of this phone

    • Me

      It is sexy as hell. I’m tryna hold off until the Nokia 8/9 comes out.

      • seattle tech

        It really is. I didn’t think it would be much difference from my s7 edge but it is leveling up. I’m excited to see what nokias flagship will look like but honestly if it has bezels it is a no go now.

  • TheWenger

    My shipment’s been delayed up to a month……

  • JSo

    Ugh. Get this or wait for the next Pixel? Hmmm. Decisions

    • disastrousrainbow

      Get the S8 and enjoy it for the next six months. See what the Pixel brings to the table. Sell the S8 if the Pixel 2 knocks it out of the park with its design and not just its software. Enjoy life.

      • JSo

        My dilemma is if I get this phone, I will be getting it through T-Mobile and I would be doing a payment plan with it. It wouldn’t be an issue if I knew Google was going to release the next Pixel though T-Mobile this time around so I could just use T-Mobile’s JUMP when it comes out. But if they only sell it through the Play Store again, I will already be stuck with the S8 payment still. I don’t buy phones full price. I’m not rich enough to spend around $800 all at once. lol

        • Turb0wned

          You don’t spend $800 at once if you sell your previous phone….

          • JSo

            My Nexus 5X isn’t worth $800. Lol

          • Me

            Keep it as a back up or sell it & get a 3 or 3T. Still get your stock fix.

          • JSo

            Oh, yeah if I get an S8, I’ll definitely be keeping my 5X. That way I can still play with new Android versions when they come out or even switch back to it for a bit if I feel like it.

        • Me

          Doesn’t TMO give $325 back if you bring your Pixel? Might run a similar promo for the next one

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Everyone needs to go watch the initial S8 Unboxing by Kellen again…. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him that excited about a phone… Ever! Lol.

    • Futbolrunner

      Orchid! (or-kid) not (or-chid) hahaha That part was hilarious!

  • richkoos

    Hey why haven’t you guys talked about the lack of carrier branding on the s8 and s8+? It feels like it would be something you guys would write about.

    • MJ

      I haven’t bought a carrier phone in many years and hate the branding but… No outside branding seems minor (case covers it) when one still has the carrier branding on boot with all the carrier bloat installed on the phone.

    • Turb0wned

      It’s a great first step but still light years away from what Apple does. Next Samsung needs to stop allowing any carrier bloat or carrier boot up. Then they need to start actually updating devices fast straight from Samsung and not let the carrier touch it. Samsung has more than enough pull to tell the carriers to f off.

    • Me

      I was more excited about the front of the phone having no logo. Still bugs me that they have Samsung on the back twice.

      • richkoos

        It only says Samsung and Galaxy S8, pretty bare bones if you ask me.

        • Me

          Yeah I had a 4/20 moment

  • Supraman21

    I recieved mine on the 19th. Yesterday was my first full day of use and I only recieved 3.5 hours of screen on time. I had great coverage everywhere I was, took a few pictures, browsed the web a bit, with the majority of my time on wifi browsing imgur. I used package disabler, turned off all the useless features, switched the GPS mode to phone only and left the automatic brightness on. Not looking good so far.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Gotta give it a couple days to settle in. You’ll never get proper battery reading in initially on Android devices in my experience. That being said I don’t personally expect more than 4-4.5 on the smaller phone.

      • Supraman21

        I have the 8+ btw

        • disastrousrainbow

          That’s…not good. Something is up because I got nearly five on my regular S8 when all was said and done.

    • DanSan

      when you installed package disabler did you get any kind of warning from Knox or a weird samsung terms and conditions screen?

    • trevorsalienarms

      Welp, based on your report we should probably just let Sammy know to throw in the towel then.

  • Evan Yaffe

    Are you guys seeing the red tint issue at all? What are your thoughts on it?

    • Supraman21

      None at all. My only complaint is the slight gap between the glass and metal at the top of the phone. Dust can get in there and its very distracting.

    • id10terrordfw

      Not here on my S8 +. I almost wonder if these people have the blue light filter on…

      • Evan Yaffe

        The night mode feature?

        • id10terrordfw

          Yes. It can be very subtle on the default setting, and if left on would lean towards a reddish tint.

    • DanSan

      not on mine but i saw a lot of people reporting it.

    • seattle tech

      I think the red hue is from the new screen tech. I can see slight pink around the edge because of the curve. The trade off is worth it. This screen is the best screen I have ever seen and I thought the s7 screen was good enough.

  • disastrousrainbow

    For those on the fence about the S8’s smaller battery you should rest easy:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/941af114d11009cc19e9a92f987ebf2b9cd2e5841da0ea638e4c40ac0a59c5bf.png

    This was from 7 am to 10:30 pm with no compromises (except for auto-brightness). That means max resolution, high accuracy location settings, etc., and by the time the phone actually turned off, I had crossed the coveted five hour mark.

    • DanSan

      S8+ battery. Charged it full yesterday afternoon and it’s been unplugged ever since. have phone at half brightness, no always on display.

      • disastrousrainbow

        That’s some good life considering how massive that display is, but I’m just glad that there isn’t as much of a compromise going with the smaller version this time around like there was with the S7-S7 Edge last year. The only thing that gets me about all of this is that even though it’s becoming quite clear the Snapdragon 835 is a pretty efficient processor, we could be having it even better had Samsung used its own Exynos line in all their models…

        • DanSan

          yea, can’t imagine how good the exynos life is. anything is better than my old nexus 6 so i’m happy and going to enjoy it.

          purchased a bunch of USB type A to type C cables on amazon just now. going to keep the chargers but just replace the cords. dont think I really need to Type C to C. I also purchased the lay flat fast charging wireless pad that came out with the GS7E to sit on my nightstand.

    • Mike

      What do you do with your phone, just turn your screen on and leave it there? Not a single non-system app in the top five of your battery settings.

      • disastrousrainbow

        Yes. That’s exactly what I did. I bought a $720 phone so I could turn the screen on, set it on my desk, and just gawk at it. How did you know? I mean, really, that’s amazing that you figured it out. You must be really, really, really smart…and pretty.

        • Mike

          And you must not be very bright to not get that was a joke.

          • disastrousrainbow

            If that was a joke then you need better delivery or a reference (like my Frisky Dingo one) thrown somewhere in there so it doesn’t come off so…bitchy. Good rule of thumb for these here internets.

    • Cakefish

      That’s slightly less than I got with my Exynos S7 when I first got it (I averaged 5 hours SOT). I do not get that now however, as over a year of heavy use has noticeably degraded the battery (I average 4 hours SOT now). I look forward to Samsung’s super long lasting batteries it’s using in the S8 becoming commonplace. Battery degradation is the #1 reason why I feel the desperate urge to upgrade annually.
