Galaxy S8's Button Is for Bixby Only — Samsung

New Samsung Gear 360 app available on the Google Play Store

Pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 were opened in South Korea on April 7, roughly a week after its official unveiling on March 29. Last year, around 70 percent preorder customers ended up purchasing the device, so carriers are expecting the figure to be around the same for the Galaxy S8. The issue wasn't sorted even after correcting the color display settings. But the complaints are already starting to appear regarding a reddish tint visible across the display. When the said user checked their own device, they were equally unlucky.

The scale of the problem or its cause is not yet known. Other than these two, every other specifications including the front camera will be the same Samsung Galaxy S8+. This may pose the risk of having a color balance problem because there are two greens. An industry analyst pointed out Samsung utilizes the deep red technology to achieve color balance on their devices. The tech is said to make the usual whites look reddish and can be solved only through software calibration.

In fact, Samsung has confirmed this.

Galaxy S8+ comes featuring dual-edge curved display, minimal bezels on the top and bottom, and 18:5:9 aspect ratio. A company spokesperson was quoted as saying that the red tint has nothing to do with a faulty display or another hardware issue. Samsung has managed to maximize the screen here by concealing the physical home button underneath the screen, and using virtual buttons that can disappear when they're not in use. But now Samsung has blocked the feature, which means that as soon as you update your Galaxy S8 after you receive it, you won't be able to remap the Bixby button.

Samsung launched Bixby to challenge Siri, Google Assistant, and Cortana.

The iPhone7 has limited flexibility regarding storage space, too, offering a mere three configurations - the largest being 256 GB of internal phone storage. It would speak only US English and Korean initially.

We don't exactly know the reason for not incorporating these features in the final product, but the most obvious reason we could think of is that Samsung was not ready.

So, at least until the method of rooting the Samsung Galaxy S8 is achieved, it will no longer be possible to reassign the Galaxy S8 button's quick access function to another app other than the voice assistant itself. For example, I didn't get any real sense of how effective Bixby, the company's new voice assistant, worked in conversation - demonstration halls are notoriously noisy. Samsung needs to enhance the capabilities of its AI assistant if it wants to catch up with rivals.

According to a report from The Investor, a market-focused offshoot of South Korean newspaper The Korea Herald, preorders of Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in South Korea have surpassed 1 million units.
