Users of Galaxy S8 Samsung caught cheating
It’s been two weeks since the start of sales of Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and can already do the first conclusions. South Korean new items actually sold pretty well, but the first owners faced a number of problems. At first the users complained about the red tint of the display, which was later eliminated by the update. Then Samsung was forced to respond to the problems with the Wi-Fi signal. Now buyers of the novelties complained about the quick charge function Galaxy S8.
