    Is it running 7.0 or 7.1.1? Did you check for updates? There might be an OTA at launch.

    T-mobile did not mean to send mine. They actually tried to stop the delivery. I think Wednesday is the day for everyone.
    That's dumb! What's the point of trying to stop it? They already took money from you right?

    It should be 7.0. According to this article, 7.1 is still being tested.

    Is Samsung testing Nougat 7.1 for Galaxy S8?

    They don't want to anger the Korean mothership.

    Yeah, that's what it sounds like. I believe that all the carriers and places like Best Buy and Costco have some sort of deal with Samsung so they are not allowed to released them as early as they used to.

    Ordered it from Samsung directly. Do not like the placement on the fingerprint sensor- hard to reach and the small size doesn't make it any more convenient. Maybe a few more days will make me get used to it. Face unlock makes things a bit easier but isn't as consisten and depends on lighting conditions.
    I played around with the S8/S8+ at Best Buy today and I absolutely hate the placement of the FPS. I decided not to order one and I'm looking to see what the Note 8 brings.

    Congrats on getting it super early!

    If you think the fps is going to be different on the note you're mistaken.

    None of us know anything about the Note 8. Let's just leave it at that for now.

    It definitely won't be next to the camera.

    Did you order a screen protector? If so how is it with the screen's curved edges?
    Nope. Didn't get a screen protector.

    Ah ok. Have you tried Bixby in it's limited capacity yet?
    Yes. When I got the phone Bixby was very limited but last night it got updated and now there are settings for voice. That being said, you still can't enable voice settings and I get a message "Couldn't Connect to Network" when Ilaunch Bixby now. News feed and schedules etc. are getting updated so I'm assuming Bixby Servers for voice are not getting connected to.

    What carrier are you? I heard T-Mobile was shipping them out early
    I'm in Dubai and bought it directly from Samsung. Everyone who preordered from Samsung got them this week.

    It's running 7.0. No update yet. Only Bixby got updated but not via software update.

    I agree. They will either hopefully have the technology to read fingerprints under screen ready by then or they'll move it.

    Hi,

    May I ask what the palm rejection is like ?

    I'll be waiting for the Note 8 release but it that falls flat I'll definitely be buying the s8.

    I'm actually quite impressed with that. In my hands it has barely ever registered a false tap. However, when I have passed the device to colleagues, in that process, I have noticed things accidentally going off.

    Also, just recieved a software update this morning. Lets see if that fixes that:

    This is only a hotfix to prevent remeapping of the Bixby button.

    A 650MB+ fix just to prevent the remapping? Sounds excessive. There must be some other tweaks in there too.

    Here it is all set up. Apologies for the shameless Insta plug.

    Jealous of your phone, jealous of your temperature, jealous of you being in Dubai. Just a jealous girl! Enjoy your phone.

    So this is strange- I tried this and it didn't work. But I cannot get this to work even when I'm in the Google Now app. I know for sure that voice was working on day 1 in the Google app but now, unless I manually hit the mic on the search, its not working. I've checked settings and Voice is enabled. The only two things that changed are the software update I got today and Bixby update yesterday.

    Oooh boy, if they really deactivated voice activation for Google Assistant, I'll cancel my pre-order. Can anyone confirm this?
