    2,3 weeks old and I am used to this back side finger print sensor.

    So happy with s8 plus. Size weight. All Good. Just ram is issue? I use SwiftKey in all my devices. Sometimes it takes time to to appear. Why no 6 gb of ram.

    Surely it's not using all 4GB? I never get anywhere near 4GB with the S7, even with 4 big games and 8 fairly large apps running in the background I still have 880MB free

    it could be that the program is sleeping so it will take a bit longer to activate.
    default rom dont have any optimisations to speed apps also.

    SwiftKey is somehow problem on iPhone and Samsung phones. Huawei. Htc. Sony. All good. But Samsung rom or what ever it is, this SwiftKey is can't even match my typing speed and it sometimes lags while it starts. Even when I clicked here to type now. First a black box then I see keyboard. Happens not often. But happens can't even match to my typing speed. Googled this issue yes Samsung phones has this. S7 SwiftKey lag etc. S8 has same issue.

    And this orchid grey is perfect for hiding the finger prints on the backside. But a bit gay color? I prefer black. Shame it was not available while I bought this color. Considering selling this color and re buying the black one.

    I don't see any lag or black boxes / typing speed problems on my S7 with Swiftkey

    i got an s8+, very happy with with it....

    Bixby is a bit hit miss or maybe just now, and very laggy. Its promising though as soon as more apps are able to be used. but the fact you can bixby within an app to do stuff in the actual app is pretty neat.... i feel Bixby and Google are gonna fight, both of them living in my phone

    Moisture. 3 days ago I hold my s8 plus in the sea like 5 seconds. And now can't use charging port. Only wireless charging. What ever I do, phone keeps saying moisture. Wet. I did everything google says. Rice, hair dryer. Even small tool to clean port manually. Still same. What a sht situation.

    Try cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol, might help if you can get the salt off before it corrodes anything

    Maybe even fresh water for now to get the worst of it off

    How on earth I didn't think that. Thank you man.

    Edit: it worked. Issue is gone. Normal water fixed my issue. I thank you again.
