    Hello everyone!
    I need your opinions.
    I'm thinking of getting an S8+ but I would like to know what are the pros and the cons first.
    Any issues with S8+?
    Thanks!

    Screen burn in if you leave your display on for very long periods of time especially with high brightness

    It's a brilliant device but fingerprint, iris and face recognition are all unreliable in my case... Otherwise it's great.

    Really? Is it a known Issue? This is the main reason why I'm leaving LG V20. Screen retention.

    I have a V20. And I have that problem. But I prefer it to the superamoled burn in I've had on all my Samsung phones.

    So how can you say screen burn is a problem if it's too new for you to have seen an issue?

    Well of course they do, they're left on 24/7 at maximum brightness lol. Real world usage will very very rarely ever get burn in.

    And never on any Samsung phone I've ever owned. So now were zeroed out. If it were an issue don't you think there would be mass amounts of people online complaining about it?

    Navigation apps are the biggest culprit of causing this issue. Avoid having navigation visible for hours on end and you likely will never see burn in.

    I've had every Galaxy S since the s2, some of them more than once. I've had the Note 3 and 4 too and I can honestly say I've never, EVER had screen burn in or even image retention on any of them. I've never had screen burn on any phone in fact and I've had many Androids, Windows phones and every iPhone. I'm not saying some phones don't suffer it but I've yet to see it personally. Phones on display in a shop with static images are likely to suffer screen burn but when in the real world does someone keep their phone on all day without the screen changing?

    Every phone I've owned since having an HP Pre 3 suffered from burn in or retention. Samsung Galaxy S4 and two Galaxy Note Edges. All with burn in. LG V10 and V20 both with retention.

    So I choose retention over permanent burn in since I can't seem to avoid one or the other.

    I use my phone more than the average person I suppose. Just something to consider for heavy users that's all.

    I've been disappointed with the galaxy series and the less than sub par TouchWiz UI since they "upgraded" when I still has my S2.

    The Note7 was a brilliant device except for the idiotic glass back and of course the battery issue.

    If possible wait for the note 8 or get a LG V20. I decided on Iphone which sucks slightly less than the Galaxy series.

    S8 Note 8 have glass backs and V30 will too. At this point I don't know if I'd get a V20 if I didn't already have it. It does have many features that I need though that other phones don't offer.

    I'm using a v20 now. Everything that I need in a phone is in this phone but this has a screen retention. My 2nd screen now and still got it. Never used it for navigation or put the brightness in full. A lot of v20 users are complaining about it too.

    So if this S8 has burn in, then I won't switch.

    As many have said, they don't get this problem. I do so I'm out as far as amoled goes. You may be fine.

    To add to what you're saying, the amoled burn in I see on my Samsung phones shows up on white backgrounds. Many people may not even notice unless they go looking for it.
