2 weeks+. Running fast so far. Rarely stutters (lags?).
Disable most unused stuff with PBP.
The Screen. The Screen. The Screen.
And never thought I could ditch Chrome for Samsung Internet.

Why samsung internet over chrome? Not samsung browser must be downloaded right?

I'm definitely a heavy Google services user and I despise Samsung apps (used to).
Fluidity, battery efficiency and ADS FREE experience keeps me using Samsung Internet.
I tried go back to Chrome after 1 week+ with Samsung Internet. I close it immediately right after I saw ads.
I gotta thank this thread for recommending Samsung Internet though.

S8 active is just around the corner. Do Samsung Malaysia normally bring in the active version of their s series?
*
IINM, previously Active version has always been for US market locked to specific carrier...

How's you guys s8 holding up now? Does the lag starting to kick in? I really interested with the phone but the lag, i can't stand it.
*
For me, yeah the lag does start to kick in for me... but I'm guessing because I have a lot of stuff running in background... still getting 4-5 hrs SOT for me is still impressive. Once, I hit home button but phone doesn't return home... Hit Bixby button, it doesn't go to Bixby (perhaps it went to sleep and waking up take some time). Sometimes, opening app drawer will yield some stutter...

but for me, so far nothing that really irritates me... this is like the best Samsung device I've ever used (well, I've only used Note first gen and Note 10.1)... also, like many people who tried I can't believe myself to move away from Chrome to Samsung Internet as well... it works pretty well...

May I suggest OP5. IF fludity is your main priority.
Hate aside. Phones good but I would say, OVERPRICED.

What lag did u experience bro?

i haven't buy it yet. interested to buy it since the price for S8+ drop so much now. been reading some reviews that they're experiencing some lags and stutters. that's why i'm asking if the those things are bearable or maybe can covered by other features.

I used none but I have a case for it (I haven't use a case for years)
PBP = Package Disabler Pro, its a paid app IIRC.

Almost a month using it - no lag- microstutter pun tiada- great screen.
Stock setup- didn't disable anything.

Oic. For me its bearable. Samsung has improved a lot since s6edge. Stutters is a lot less. Most of my friend coming from other fluid fon like htc,oneplus, nexus all can tahan with microstutter. With the beautiful screen and design with awesome camera somemore.. some people can try to ignore those microstutter. Haha.

The only stutter that i experience. When opening application in setting then directly scroll to find apps that we want. There sure transition not smooth. Haha
