    I would like to hear what changes people would like to see in a future update on the Galaxy S8.
    This would be something an update could correct, change, make better, etc...

    For me it would be

    1. Notification LED is far to dim. There needs to either be a setting to increase and decrease brightness. OR they simply need to put it back up the brightness or previous Galaxy Models.

    2. The lock screen clock ( Not the Always On Display Clock )
    We need the ability to change that awful lock screen clock to something else.

    There are my changes. What are yours, and your thoughts on mine?

    I think you can change the lockscreen clock with themes... I actually like mine!

    As for changes, I'd like them to fix the wonky 'disappearing' navigation bar. It's a cool idea, but it doesn't really work well; to make it re-appear it usually prompts the underlying app for scrolling or text input (it goes nuts with FB comments). And while we're at it, bringing back the option for more colors (or at least decent ones... come on, bring back the black!).

    And fix Bixby and allow re-mapping of the button hehe. Or make a magical update that will make that button disappear

    I find the leds bright enough.
    But I would like a red colour slider for amoled modes. So I can turn it down and finally use them.
    Bixby is almost useless in Europe, I would like to see it do more over here.

    Using adb, you can bring back the black nav bar. Took about 2 minutes to do so.

    adb shell settings put global navigationbar_color -16777216
    adb shell settings put global navigationbar_current_color -16777216
    Id like to see bluetooth range fixed. Id love to walk more than 10 feet from a speaker before it stutters. Or at least be able to pocket my phone while using a headset without stutters.

    Mmm... mine can do that. I leave the phone at the middle of the pool and can go to either end with BT Headphones without issues (as long as I don't place the phone near a pump or light).

    BT is very inconsistent on these phones. Tons of people are having issues (the Samsung forum thread is at 55 pages last I saw) then there's some not having issues. It's a mess.

    Bluetooth is fine till I put it in my pocket and go for a run. I'm definitely experiencing that stutter others are as well.

    I don't like the nav bar. That's about it right now.

    What do you use for the lock screen clock? Current one is awful.

    Installed SD Black. I like the placement of the clock but I think the colours are stupid.
    It needs to be just a solid colour in my opinion.

    Haha that's why I liked it! Black background, simple yet striking color contrast. But, if you don't like that, there are other themes with different clocks and I'm sure one must fit your needs

    I doubt you can get that with a software update... maybe the price, eventually, after the S10 is released...

    Not sure to be honest. I'd say dual camera if anything. Wide angle lenses are fun.

    OK, we're talking hardware updates now... that wouldn't be an 'updated S8', that would be the S9 :P

    Samsung is so busy working to get Bixby ready, I think they have nothing else on priority at this point irrespective of what we like them to fix

    You're right I suck.. this is about software updates :P. Doh!

    Hmmm.. software wise what would I want. Personally I wish all phones had a bandwidth monitor so I didn't have to use a 3rd party app. Odd request but something I would personally like :P.

    Just saw this in another thread... Samsung should have screenshots go to their own folder. That way I don't have to go delete a bunch of screenshots from my backup since they go into the camera roll.

    Man that would be the best..

    They should put the 16mp wonderful camera from the S6 back, better yet, 2 off them, one wide angle also a quad dac and decent speakers on the front. None of this will happen of course as they think people will buy their phones no matter what they do. Maybe one day they will be surprised.
