    Anyone else noticed when they go to about bixby voice it prompts for an update then tries to download and says you have the most recent version. However when you open it again it tries again to update. Appears to be v1.9.33 on unlocked. Anyone else noticed thks?
    Forgot to attach the photo. After clicking the update button it says I have the most recent version already installed. Weird.

    So I have experience with a Verizon s8+ and I just bought an unlocked s8+ at best buy and the unlocked one feels a bit quicker to me. IDK.

    How so? Is it cause it's new? What are you seeing that makes it feel quicker??

    Just when I'm loading webpages , apps, etc. There seemed to be minor lag on my Verizon model sometimes and haven't seen any yet on this one.

    Just noticed you can now hold down bixby button to dictate after the update. Maybe finally getting full bixby soon...

    Can you explain what you mean by this? Where are you able to dictate to the phone, while using the Bixby app?

    Basically anywhere that the keyboard pops up (probably have to be using the samsung keyboard). If the keyboard has popped up you just hold down the bixby button and bam instant dictation. It seems really good thus far. Maybe bixby will be useful after all lol

    OK, got you, and yes that only works if using the Samsung keyboard, no luck with GBoard or Swiftkey.

    Thanks.

    I think I'm gonna order mine from Samsung, they will give me 350 for the S7E which brings the price down for the S8+ to 375, that's unbeatable!!! Plus 49 for the 360 camera, great deal

    The BB guy told me no LTE PLUS ON VZW. My V20 is capable of it but I have never seen an LTEplus icon.

    I have Verizon and I have the LTE+ icon showing. Well it sometimes shows the + and sometimes it doesn't.
    I'm getting decent speeds too.

    Cool. Never seen it. I will have to watch for it. My speeds are comparable to yours though so I guess no biggie.

    I got my S8+ last week. Ordered on the evening of 6/5, shipped on 6/6, got it on 6/8.

    I also traded in a US unlocked S7 Edge to get $350 off the price at Samsung.
