I have absolutely noticed this and it's making me crazy!!! It's infuriating. It also doesn't capitalize when I specifically tell it to in the middle of a sentence, and I've noticed tons of issues with spacing as well. It's slowed my texting way down because I'm constantly correcting its stupid mistakes.

These are issues for me, too and it's really quite ridiculous. Texting on my S4 was better than it is on the S8. Swipe typing seems to have gotten worse, as well.

Mine does not have that issue, it always capitalizes the first letter of the sentence. Do you have the snapdragon version or the exynos version, that may be the difference. Mine is a snapdragon variant.

I have the same problem only the very first sentence of a message. Its quite an annoyance. Hopefully someone comes up with a resolution soon. On a positive note.........I do love my s8+!

Additionally when given optional words to select it seems like it always ends up an odd word with digits. Also an annoyance. Any suggestions?

For Samsung galaxy s8's -
If you open your keyboard (as it to type a message) and click the little bottom to the left of your space bar - hold this button down...

When you hold it down it will display some options including a Cog (settings) icon - click this.

When this is opened it will give you options to customise your keyboard including auto-capitalizing letters

    I've noticed that the keyboard does not automatically capitalize the first word in a sentence. I have to delete that word, then it capitalizes the sentence like it should. Auto capitalization is checked.
    Anyone notice this?
