    I was just wondering what screen setting everyone is using for there S8?

    I know its defaulted to FHD too save battery life.

    Is the WQHD+ setting so bad on battery?

    Does the WQHD+ look that much better than FHD+?

    Set on FHD on Basic screen mode. Looks awesome and crisp. Still playing with it. I wonder if it is possible to jack the resolution with power saving mode without hammering power consumption.

    Good point, worth a try Im gonna have a good play on mine later, I haven't managed to turn it on yet as at work. I did have a play on a demo model and I couldn't see the difference between the 2 personally. I wonder if plugged into a Gear VR it automatically changes to the WQHD+ for screen quality.

    I set mine to WQHD+ right out of the box, I got my phone yesterday at 1pm and it was fully charged by 2pm, set it up and was playing most of the day, went to bed at midnight and I still had 68% battery left. If I see the battery draining too much, I'll switch back to FHD+, but I don't see that issue so far
