    Well, rather than just crap on someone's informative thread, perhaps you can start your own thread with a review of a phone you like and why you like it.

    In the meantime, you can always go back to your Fruit box... oh that's right, you didn't like that either.

    They dont. Clearly you dont know what you are doing.

    Photos / Camera are lousy for user interfaces.
    I would love to hear how they are lousy. Considering they are basically the same on most phones.

    Answering a phone call shouldn't be that hard.
    If thats the case, you are either a troll or are terminally intellectually incapacitated. If you cant master that, you are well out of your league.

    if they provided a bloody instruction manual with the thing it wouldn't go astray either.
    Maybe its the latter ?.....Try Settings, Users Manual in your phone.....the place where it has always been. Most people don't need it, it would be like needing an instruction manual every time there was a new version of Windows or Mac.

    If you are legitimately having all the above problems, you need to either :

    A. Pay to have a technology professional come around and give you tuition or
    B. Buy a dumb phone and not a smart phone. If you only want to ring people, you don't need a smart phone.
    C. (Compulsory) Improve your attitude if you want to post here. Looking at your previous posts, I dont know how you are still here.

    What has Megapixels got to do with picture quality?
    My cheap asian phone has a 20mp camera, it takes worse photos than my 2012 Samsung S3 (8mp)

    There's a lot more to camera performance than just it's mp size.

    I don't have a phone of your model to compare, but the S8 low-light, low-noise performance is the best I've seen.

    Even my mate who is a die-hard iPhone supporter, conceded the S8 camera has surpassed Apple at this time.

    Oh... and going by specs, the phone in your link doesn't work on the Australian 700MHz 4G LTE band.

    It's a shame that people (generally) equate quantity of megapixels with quality, when the sensor is where the quality lies.

    Maybe you can start a separate Review Thread about your phone.
    Im sure members will be happy to read it.
    Include sample photos from its Camera
    AnTuTu scores

    But this is a thread about the Samsung S8.

    You appear to have misunderstood.

    I did not suggest your phone won't work on 4G.

    There are several 4G bands.

    You asked "what can this phone do that mine cant........."

    I simply pointed out that according to the specs of your phone (in the eBay listing you linked to) does not include the 700MHz LTE band now in use in Australia.

    This was a major selling point for me.

    As mentioned, you are welcome to start a thread about your phone model and provide a review.

    This thread is specifically about the S8, so back on topic please.

    I know this is in the S8 thread
    But can i ask how your Battery Life on the Note 5 is after 2 years ownership?

    I'm still looking at buying Secondhand one, or perhaps a new one now they are $500 new.
    The non replaceable battery concerns me (on all Samsung phones)
    No SD slot is a negative too.
