    Post well, this is it!

    I distanced myself from XDA for the same reason. It isn't the same anymore. At least not in the Samsung forums. Enjoy your time with family and have a happy and safe year ahead! :)

    Post Button Mapper (remap Bixby and other buttons)

    Hi Flar, good to see you in the s8 forums. Long time ex user! Is there any possibility that you could achieve triggering actions when the screen is off/locked? I would be really interested in this. Also, if you don't mind me asking, how does the bixby button remapping functionality differ...

    Post [INDIA] Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ Indian Thread

    Don't keep your hopes high. I ordered the phone on day 1 of the pre registration and didn't get the wireless charger. I've registered a complaint with Samsung care 3 times and they always tell me they'll get back to me which they never did till now. Hopeless service.

    Post [INDIA] Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ Indian Thread

    If I were you, I would try to troubleshoot the problem. I would start with not using dual sim for a day or two to see whether it has an impact. Then go for the FHD resolution and uninstalling apps one by one and see what is causing the drain. If you send it to a service center, God knows what...

    I second this. A lot of factors go into it. Screen brightness, connectivity, Bluetooth, aod, number of apps which stay active all the time like whatsapp/telegram.
