I kicked myself for not jumping on to the Verizon 50% off deal on the Google Pixel 2. This Samsung S8 blows, it lags way too much after some use i have to close all the apps (at times not that many are running) or just restart the phone. I would have assumed for a flagship phone this would be a lot faster. I'll have to wait for another deal before I toss this phone and get a Pixel 2.
I would give a "quickness" rating of 3/5 if I consider the performances of the phone out of the box. I mean it's ok, but can get messy.
However, after flashing a decent rom and rooting the thing, debloating most of samsung crap with package disabler or equivalent, I managed to get something really really fast that deserves a 5 stars rating.
I've got my (Exynos) S8+ running this ROM with Magisk, and it definitely feels faster. No lag or stutter whatsoever, or any other performance complaints for that matter.
For me, debloating alone makes worth rooting. I haven't had that 80% battery issue, but anyways battery performance really improved over the stock samsung ROM.
With that being said, coming from a Moto Z Play as my daily driver for about a year, I can't really say the Samsung feels $500 faster by any means. And it goes trough the battery waaaaay faster.
