Are you experiencing these problems too?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is without a doubt one of the best smartphones that you can buy. But a week after it has released globally, users have reported various problems with the device.

The first is the widely speculated red tint issue that prevailed most of the Infinity Displays found on the S8 and its bigger brother the S8+. Samsung quickly said that the issue is normal for AMOLED based screens and has quickly issued an update that will let users tweak the colors on their mobile displays.

While that issue was quickly rectified, some users are now reporting that their units are restarting for no apparent reason. While there wasn’t any official explanation to the issue, many are saying that it relates to the CPU overload when the smartphone is doing intensive tasks.

While Samsung hasn’t acknowledged the issue, I’m sure the company is working on a fix for it. After all, a lot is riding on the success of the Galaxy S8 after the failure of the Note 7.

Our review unit of the Samsung Galaxy S8 yielded no issues in the weeks we have had it. And our verdict on the S8 still stands: It is still one of the best smartphones we’ve tested, and even triumphs the iPhone 7 in every way possible.
