Galaxy S8, S8+ attract huge pre-order from Nigerian users

It has been quite some time since Samsung has announced the launch of their latest flagship device.

With that said, folks started thinking about the extra button Samsung has placed on the side of its S8 and how it could be mapped to a different service - Google Assistant for instance.

Still, Spoonauer was clear that the Galaxy S8 is a "fantastic phone".

Given the scathing experience Samsung suffered over the Galaxy Note 7's battery, you'd think they'd have learned their lesson by now.

Considering the fact that multiple customers are facing a "red tint" issue with their Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones, the situation can be magnified significantly.

The dual camera setup is becoming quite popular, and its not limited to Android devices, even Apple launched the iPhone 7 Plus with a similar arrangement. The Galaxy S8's virtual personal assistant Bixby isn't yet fully operational, and Samsung's decision to place the fingerprint sensor to the right of the rear camera was an unfortunate choice.

Samsung designed the S8 with a physical button on the left side of the phone just below the volume control.

"We now expect full-screen design will accelerate penetration of the high-end smartphone segment over the next few years, thanks to adoption by S8 and the new 2H17F OLED iPhone model", Kuo added.

Samsung's much-touted voice assistant Bixby is another major USP of the Galaxy S8-series. Yes, we don't have a radical design change here or anything like that, but it is not a particularly poor design as well. For this reason, we revise up our 2017F S8 shipments from 40-45mn units to 50-55mn units.

Apple still has the big perk of 3D Touch, as the pressure-sensitive screen lets you press harder for additional interactions or to access handy menus. It has been created to perform tasks, which users would otherwise do by tapping on the screen, simply via voice-commands.

The local tech community sites Ppomppu and Ruliweb had multiple posts with images of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ having excessive red tints on the screen.
