The new Galaxy phones have garnered positive reviews all over, though the Bixby assistant is not as great as it was rumored to be. In fact, the people loved it so much that Samsung had to release a software update that would render the Galaxy Note 7 models useless. The company recently released a statement that revealed that pre-orders of the Galaxy S8 are 30 percent higher than those of S7. The company did not break out exact pre-order numbers or say whether one of the S8's is performing better than the other.
After receiving a record-breaking response in its home market of South Korea, it looks like the Galaxy S8 has set a new sales record globally as well. He added that they recommitted themselves to innovate not only with products and services, but also with processes. Also, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus batteries are non-removable.
Despite featuring the same battery as the Note 7, the Galaxy S8 Plus is widely expected to sell better than the S8 because consumers still value the screen real estate.
For the latest 2017 version of the phone, the new Android version will also be available.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 owners on T-Mobile have been waiting quite a while for their preferred device to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system update, and now, it appears that their wait is about to end. The Galaxy S6 Edge made up 51.3% of the total sales, and the Galaxy S7 Edge accounted for 51.9% of the sales of the last year's flagship models.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is not flawless as the company sees a few issues on its early devices including an unusual reddish color of the screen.
First thing consumers will notice: the s8 is sleek, practically all display.
Samsung is already aware about the Wi-Fi issue, and told The Wall Street Journal that a second software update will fix it. There's no similar analysis yet for the bigger and more expensive Galaxy S8 Plus.
