S8 is the first phone im considering not rooting since i didnt see much use for it on my S6 except for the adblock app. Is there one that works well without root? One that will work in chrome and youtube?

Edit: Is ad block possible without a vpn app?

Try to use AdGuard - https://adguard.com/en/welcome.html

I use this app on my S7 without root and it's working very well.

Adguard is a vpn. I was wondering if there is a ad block without root that's not a vpn service. It could affect speed and battery life.

Someone mentioned "Disconnect Pro" on another thread. Apparently it has exclusive access to knox and therefore doesn't require vpn or anything...

Thanks but at $33 it's too expensive. There's another app call adhell that's open sourced and free. Used the same Knox method. Just installed it and seems to be working.

Adblock without root?
I use AdBlock. Google it. It works great on my S7 and my tablet. It uses a vpn but does not compromise speed or battery life.
