    I still like it but...
    -I would prefer it a bit wider/shorter
    -I really don't like the placement of the Bixby button (I frequently hit the button by accident).

    Cheers,
    BR

    Video wrapping around the edge screen bothers me far more than having black edges on the sides of the video.

    I truly enjoy the phone as is. Maybe if they made a flat screen version it would have checked all my boxes but overall I can't complain.

    I'm liking it. Aspect ratio works great for apps and web. And for Netflix, being able to crop cinema wide movies to see closer to their aspect ratio is awesome. Black bars reduces screen size to about what I had with my V10, so even then it's no loss to me.

    Definitely odd. Same usage since day 1 and same stellar performance. On the heavy days I can just quick charge it up in no time so I haven't found any issues with it.

    I thought my 8+ would help me pick up the ladies, but nope. Perhaps since I'm married that is for the better.

    Sometimes and app can get wonky. Can you screen shot the battery page and post it? Example below.

    Also you might want clear cache.

    Here is how you clear cache, it will not erase anything or reset your device if you follow the direction exactly.

    How to Enter Galaxy S8 and S8+ in Recovery Mode

    Here are the few simple steps to boot into recovery mode on Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+.

    1. Turn off the phone completely.
    2. Now press and hold Bixby, Volume Up and Power Keys simultaneously.
    3. Release all the buttons when screen flickers, and Samsung’s logo appears to enter into recovery mode.
    4. In the Recovery Mode, use Volume Up, and Down Keys to for navigation purpose. Use Power button for selection purpose.
    5. Once you get into recovery mode, you’ll see the following screen containing similar options are a little bit different.
    recovery mode on Samsung Galaxy S7 shown below.
    6. To delete device cache, select “Wipe cache partition” from the list of options and confirm it.
    7. Wait until the process gets finished.
    8. Once it is completed, select ‘reboot system now’ to restart the device.

    It doesn't bother me at all. I love watching videos and playing games on my S8+. I grew accustomed to the ratio as soon as I started playing around with the phone. The S7E seems too small now after having had this phone for 2 weeks.

    I like it and it will hold me over until the Note 8 hits. I believe the Note 8 will be everything the S8 was suppose to be.

    To me, it's just a tall S7 with edges.
    Something I'm familiar with and makes the S8+ easier to keep.

    Like the battery a lot. Yesterday I work up at 4:30 am 100%. I didn't charge it until 8 pm and it was at 20%.

    After owning it a bit, would you have preferred if they had kept the 16.9 ratio? I returned mine, i personally felt it cost too much for what it was, but i see so much praise for the device i wonder if any of y'all felt same way AT FIRST and are you now, "so accustomed to it, to the point where, you wouldn't have it any other way?"

    Just curious....thinking maybe i just didn't keep it long enuf to adjust to it, but for the 3 days i had it every time i saw that tall stringy beany phone staring up at me i was like, "eeeesh, girl, you look anorexic"... lol
    I didn't like the aspect ratio either. Though it was easier to type one handed, the phone just felt too long and videos don't look great.
