I'm having issues such as rebooting with my G3 even after replacing the battery. Should I pull the trigger on the S8 with the speaker deal this month?

Koodo is offering $100 off right now which comes to $894.
Pull that trigger! :)

Is anyone returning theirs and repurchasing it?

I'm trying to find out if I can. I hate how impatient I am, not as if I really needed another S8 (have the S8+). :(

I only used it for data so far so no calls and upgraded on April 29th.

Samsung theme Simple Line Black changes the lock screen so that it has a normal looking digital clock. Always on display can be disabled and clock still looks normal.

I applied this theme but restored the original icons. Looks nice. Does Black reduce battery consumption too?

I did the same with the icons. The Material Icons (free) look decent too. Have been playing with Nova Launcher and so far I like that. As for power consumption, AMOLED is support to consume less power when displaying black. As of this typing, my daily stats are 4h20m screen time, and 1h50m talk time, with 48% battery left.

Anyone know how to disable the vibration when waking up the device by pressing on the virtual home button?

I tried to redeem but not getting anywhere. It just shows my product. Thanks.

I signed up and shows purchase date correctly.

I had to call support. Apparently the problem was using your phone had limitations, you need to enable Request Desktop Site. Make sure you fill out everything in your profile. Go back to My Offers and you should see the promotion to sign up and that's where you need to upload the receipt.
