    Going on 6 weeks with my S8 plus and not a bit of lag anywhere! Fastest device I have ever owned and I am also on AT&T.

    I don't have major lag issues, but I quickly turned off animations like I do with every phone I can. No matter how fast they are, I find them a waste.

    Then again, you can lag any phone if you try hard enough.

    it's a smooth experience so fair for daily use running nova launcher. I do notice in games and some apps, like Snapchat, the experience isn't as smooth as my iPhone 7 plus. This seems to only be very noticable in games though but other then that it's a great Android phone.

    I'd say its more of a perception thing,most people don't seem to have really noticed any lag issues, i have some stuter here and there but nothing major,plenty happy with my s8+ but then again just like any phone it's not for everyone. If you're happy with a pixel more power to ya i just found google phones to be too boring out of the box not enough to justify that price imho.
    Yeah I can see why it's price per feature is low compared to the S8 but for me I care more about quick updates and in this particular case fluidity. I get the Pixel doesn't have scheduled reboots, water proofing, OIS FFC, wireless charging, one hand mode, GIF (gif as in giraffe or giant ) maker etc. that the S8 does, but I never really used those features personally. I guess I'm just as vanilla as the Pixel lol.

    I like the S8 and think the S8 is a great device!!!, just wasn't for me as an individual.

    Which is totally fine i used nexus before then went extinct (mostly the 6p which i loved) but for me and my usage stock android i just too boring but pixels imo are worst than nexus phones mostly because for that premium price there's not really anything amazing about it it's more like just another phone in the android sea. I love my s8 but mostly because 6.2 for me is awesome but i watch tons of content on it and play emulators (18:9 makes it soooo good for that imho),although i don't use any features you mentionned :P.I'm mostly used to samsung phones and prefer what they do hardware wise (retina scanners and other "samsung functions") to me it's mostly buying the most interesting phone specially since i don't really care much for updates. Still think google makes great phones just like apple does (unless you're talking about software wise but that's another story ahah XD)

    Nb : i do love me some vanilla milkshakes

    Agree Pixel is smoother (as, in my experience, are Apple phones). But I have no lag and consider other devices to be vanilla compared to the S8. And I don't like vanilla.

    If there's a problem I do a factory reset. I understand that is anathema to many but Android has much improved the process.

    I decided to buy an unlocked S8+ tonight at BestBuy. After getting everything finally setup, it seems pretty smooth. Not sure if it's any better then my S7 Edge but I've only been using it for about an hour now after setting up. I may try lowering the animation settings as well. I have 45 days to return the phone which is why I bought at BestBuy.

    Puts S7 Edge to shame. I am glad I made the upgrade.

    Me too. I normally go to Nova right away. This is the longest I've gone on any phone, other than the Pixel, without switching to Nova.

    Well to be fair there's a high chance i might use it down the road if i get bored of samsung's Ui but it's mostly for fluidity purposes,since i didn't notice much lag or issues for now that's probably why i'm still not using it :P Well that and the fact i'd probably loose the edge functions ahah XD

    I have not tried yet on the S8+, but I don't remember losing the edge functions on the S7 Edge. I could be wrong though.

    I hope not 0,0 since i'm 90% sure i'll end up trying nova on the s8 but i still like the options of having the edge functions....

    From what I've seen, besides the Weather Widget, everything else works on Nova launcher just as in Samsung Experience UI. The only other thing that was having issues before was also a widget but since S8 was released the new Calendar app and Nova versions work together very well, so full month calendar widget now works too.

    There may be other things that I don't use that may not be available if not using Default launcher, nothing that I can think of though.

    Edge functionality will not be impacted. I used Nova Prime on my S7 Edge with no issues. Don't need it on my S8 Plus. Samsung UI works perfect on this phone. No need to replace it. 1st Samsung device to survive its launcher on my phones lol

    Little bit of lag I have, that I notice regularly and it drives me nuts... When I hit video record button in camera. Lags 4-6 seconds. When trying to catch a funny kid moment seems like eternity before it actually starts recording 🤔😢

    That's odd. I just compared my S8+ to my iPhone 7 Plus. From the time I open the camera app until I am recording a video is about the same on both. It's about 3-4 seconds. Once I hit the record button, both begin recording within 1-2 seconds.

    I can understand your frustration. I am not sure how to fix it though. Maybe a factory reset?

    Camera opens right away and pics are immediate. Just when I hit record video it's a bit before it starts recording. I'm not bothered enough by it to go through trouble of factory reset. It is irritating however. On Verizon if we had Samsungs backup cloud deal id probably try though. Just too much work for minor inconvenience. When I went to film video just try to think a few seconds ahead. 🤔
