    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.

    Even I had a similar opinion as you do and even do so now. But I've found out the hard way when HTC simply didn't honor the warranty because the bl unlock flag was tripped. I tried hard to convince them that it had nothing to do with the software since it was a dead emmc, but they just wouldn't...

    Wth. Why do they do this? If I knew this would eventually come to Indian market, I would have waited!! This was announced as a Korea exclusive if I remember correctly?

    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.

    Post No real full screen on YouTube with S8 Plus

    Dude. I'm not defending the OP but an average guy who is not tech savvy won't be able to conclude that it has a different aspect ratio and the videos won't cover the whole screen by just looking at the screen. I'm pretty sure most of the people who bought this device didn't know it as well but...

    Post No real full screen on YouTube with S8 Plus

    You won't be able to watch any existing content on this device which fills up the whole screen without cropping it. Period. You have a good point with not having an option to stretch the videos to fit the display though. But honestly, I wouldn't consider that as an option as it would spoil the...

    Indeed. I'm coming over from a nexus device and I feel Samsung has come a long way in the software game. I actually like the UI now and the tweaks they provide are simply awesome. Don't find a reason to root or flash custom roms anymore. I do miss native adblock though...

    Post S8 plus red screen issue India

    The software update doesn't fix it right off the bat. You get additional control over how you want to tune the RGB and edges of the screen. You need to find the right balance which works for you. My S8+ doesn't have a red tint over the whole screen but it had slight tint over the edges...

    Pretty sure he's referring to the free wireless charger you get for pre-orders. You can buy one at Samsung's estore for Rs. 4500

    That edge screen color calibration setting is simply awesome. I have negligible red tint on the edges now. The only time I have the red tint is when I look at my screen from a weird angle which is a good thing I guess for prying eyes.. Lol

    I don't see the banner yet. Activated everything on the 2nd. Let's see how long it takes to show up. Not a big deal though, wireless charger is more of a convenience, so I don't mind waiting for it. (as long as I get it... lol)

    What is this sorcery? I streamed Dear Zindagi on Netflix last night and by the time the movie ended, the battery was at 81% I'm getting incredible battery life. I'm sitting at 59% right now and it's off the charger for at least 15 hours. I haven't played any games during the period though.

    Yes, there is definitely a red tint on the borders but it only appears at a certain angle and on really white backgrounds. I feel it's because of the nature of these curved displays. Certainly not a deal breaker for me. The display is Gorgeous!!! Midnight Black S8+
