Well I was all smiles reading the various issues users were experiencing. My time with the S8+ was perfect when all of a sudden, my phone froze and shut off. I can honestly say my smile turned to a frown. Ugh.
Phone all of a sudden froze and rebooted. Also of note today is the first day I am using the phone with the Samsung 256gb SD card.
By the way this is NOT a little random problem. On Samsungs official community message boards there is over 20 pages of people have this problem. And many of the big name tech sites are now reporting this on their sites.
So it does seem like it is a little bit more than just a few people having this problem.
My S8+ has crashed twice in the past three days (spontaneous reboots). Both times it was when I was trying to use the iris scanner. The first time, the phone emitted a high-pitched sound for a couple of seconds before shutting down. The second time, it flashed an "Iris scanner not responding" message for a second before shutting down.
Previously, my iris scanner had occasionally stopped working, but did not crash the phone.
