In order to pave the way for the large Infinity Displays along with curved corners and edges, Samsung had to get rid of the standard physical home button from its recently announced Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ smartphones. Now, the latest buzz around the South Korean handset maker suggests it has deviated its attention to on-screen navigation buttons, which are pressure sensitive as well.

Methods Of Waking Up The Samsung Galaxy S8 & The S8+ Smartphones

There are umpteen ways a user can wake up his/her Galaxy S8 and S8+ from sleep. For instance, they can resort to using the physical power/lock button or simply double tap the on-screen AOD home button. Moreover, by tapping on an app icon, users can directly jump from the AOD screen to a notification, SamMobile reported.

It's also worth noting that the aforesaid way of waking up the Galaxy S8′s display works specifically when the Always On Display mode is put on.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Issues

The Samsung Galaxy S8 was expected to amend the company's rundown reputation amidst the Note 7 fiasco; however, it looks like the coveted smartphone is not spared from flaws either. Apparently, several Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners have recently noticed that their handsets are restarting automatically for no logical reason. As SamMobile reports, the device restarts of its own assent quite a few times a day.

Some Galaxy S8, S8+ users took to the popular Android forum, XDA Developers to express their frustration, but Samsung has neither confirmed nor denied this as an issue until now. Lining with this, a user known as Teleri had reported about his Galaxy A5 2016 restarting on its own last year while he was finishing some settings. As a probable solution to the problem, another user (haroen88) had advised him to try removing memory card/sd card.

Meanwhile, some hawk-eyed users ferreted out a link between a MicroSD card and the aforesaid restart issue, while others noted that their apps were reshuffled after every restart. It can be recalled that some users have reported about a 'red tint' appearing on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones, not too long ago, News18 reported.

Aside from that, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+ smartphones have been very well-received; however, HindustanTimes suggests things are likely to change with the 10th-anniversary edition iPhone 8 a.k.a. iPhone X's arrival just around the corner. It's worth noting that the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ smartphones are exactly the same -- the only striking difference? the screen size. The S8 features a 5.8-inches Quad HD+ Super AMOLED curved display with 1440x2960 pixel resolution and 570 PPI (pixel per inch), while its larger variant, the S8+ sports a mammoth 6.2-inch display retaining other specs of the S8.

In India, an Octa-core Exynos 8895 processor fires up the Galaxy S8 smartphone, which packs 4GB of RAM and offers 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB.
