5 common Galaxy S8 problems, bugs and glitches – and how to quickly fix them

Samsung Galaxy S8 problems, bugs, and glitches – a complete guide to the potential problems you might experience with Samsung’s new phone, plus advice on how to fix them where possible.

Samsung’s most anticipated phone ever is finally here, and it’s something special. The Samsung Galaxy S8 ups the power, trims down the bezel, and finally makes us excited about phones again.

But like all phones, the Galaxy S8 isn’t without its quirks. Having used the Galaxy S8 for a number of weeks, I’ve spotted a few minor niggles that some of you may also have experienced.

Below you’ll find some of the biggest Galaxy S8 problems, and how to try and fix them.

1) Placement of the fingerprint scanner

My biggest issue with the Galaxy is the fingerprint sensor the broadest definition, a sensor is an electronic component, module, or subsystem whose purpose is to detect events or changes in its environment and send the information to other electronics,, especially its position. Rear-mounted scanners are nothing new, but Samsung’s decision to put the S8’s right next to the camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both sensor is bizarre. Every time I try to unlock the phone telephone, or phone, is a telecommunications device that permits two or more users to conduct a conversation when they are too far apart to be heard directly, I either miss the scanner completely or hit the camera and leave it all smudged.

It’s probably a blessing then that Samsung has included a couple of other ways to offset the poor fingerprint scanner may refer to, meaning you might may refer to: might, one of the English modal verbs “Might”, a song by Modest Mouse from their 1996 album This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About Might magazine, a magazine not have to use it. The iris-scanning tech has been plucked from the Note 7, and it’s much faster now, making it actually usable. There’s facial recognition too, which is less secure than the iris scanner, but seems to work better may refer to: “to better” as a verb, meaning to undergo betterment better, an alternate spelling of bettor, someone who bets (gambles) from multiple angles.

There’s no real way of fixing this; you’ll just get better at it over may refer to time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future. But my advice is to regularly check your camera for finger smudges, as you’ll want to make or MAKE may refer to: Make (software), a computer software utility Make (magazine), an American magazine and television program MAKE Architects, a UK architecture practice Make, Botswana, a small sure you’re not taking blurry photos photograph or photo is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic medium such as a CCD or a CMOS chip thanks to an ill-placed digit.

2) Facial facial is a family of skin care treatments for the face, including steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage recognition may refer to: Award, something given in recognition of an achievement isn’t working

If you do decide to ditch the fingerprint fingerprint in its narrow sense is an impression left by the friction ridges of a human finger sensor for the facial recognition, there seems to be one obstacle you’ll have or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English “verb” used: to denote linguistic possession in a broad sense as an auxiliary to tackle – actually getting may refer to: Receiving department (or receiving dock), in a distribution center Receiving house, a theater Receiving line, in a wedding reception Receiving mark, postmark Receiving partner, in it to read your face.

It took me three attempts at scanning my mug to finally get it to unlock without being pushed, so my advice or advise (verb) may refer to: Advice (opinion), an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide to action, conduct Advice column, a regular feature on a website or in a newspaper or magazine would modal verbs of English are a small class of auxiliary verbs used mostly to express modality (properties such as possibility, obligation, etc.) be to keep on trying until it seems clear it’s got the perfect angle planar geometry, an angle is the figure formed by two rays, called the sides of the angle, sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle.

It’s technically possible is the condition or fact of being possible for Samsung to improve facial recognition remotely through software updates, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the accuracy of the system system is a set of interacting or interdependent component parts forming a complex or intricate whole getting better over time.

3) Screen isn’t quad-HD?

In a move that’s likely designed to prolong the battery life of the Galaxy S8, the phone’s 2960 x 1440 display is set to a lower FHD+ resolution when you take it out of the box. While having practical benefits, it’s also a bit cheeky to think that folks who dish out upwards of £600/$700 for a phone would be happy to accept a much lower screen resolution than they were expecting.

The good thing or The Thing may refer to is that it’s easy to switch the resolution back up. Head into Settings may refer to: A location (geography) where something is set Set construction in theatrical scenery Setting (narrative), the place and time in a work of narrative, especially fiction Setting up to > Display > Screen or Screens may refer to Resolution may refer to and slide it to WQHD+. However, be warned that this luxury may result in poorer battery life.

4) Get the app drawer back

Another Samsung move that might irk some is the lack of an obvious app drawer by default. Samsung hasn’t completely gotten rid of it – it’s still accessible with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), a swipe up from the homescreen – but there’s no visible icon to jump to it.

It’s a different system to the one used on the Galaxy S7, so even Samsung loyalists may find this a little tricky to adjust to.

Fortunately, I haven’t faced any such issues, so it’s tough to say exactly what’s causing this problem solving consists of using generic or ad hoc methods, in an orderly manner, for finding solutions to problems.

However, keen to get to the bottom of things, I spoke to the industry-renowned screen testers at DisplayMate, who sent me the following response from a representative:

“It is hard to tell what is going on because the article is written by someone who clearly doesn’t know much about displays and is filled with speculation that is pure nonsense is a communication, via speech, writing, or any other symbolic system, that lacks any coherent meaning.

The Night Shift Blue Light Filter can also be adjusted in Display Settings to give the display may refer to a reddish tint color theory, a tint is the mixture of a color with white, which increases lightness, and a shade is the mixture of a color with black, which reduces lightness.

“The Deep Red OLED, which I mention is the repetition of someone else’s statement or thoughts in my Galaxy S8 article, does not change the White is an achromatic color, a color without hue Point. The article or articles may refer to: Article (European Union), articles of treaties of the European Union Article (grammar), a grammatical element used to indicate definiteness or indefiniteness Article also mentions that the color balance problem could be caused by Diamond Pixels that have twice as many green sub-pixels, which is also nonsense.

“It is certainly possible that this could be due to some defective OLED panels, misadjusted displays at the factory factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers, or software software, or simply software, is that part of a computer system that consists of data or computer instructions, in contrast to the physical hardware from which the system is built bugs, but the user may refer to: User (system), a person using a generic system User (computing), a person or software using an information system User (telecommunications), an entity using a telecommunications Color Balance controls may refer to are the most likely source of this issue.”
