The iris scanner doesn't work every time. Sometimes it would just say no face detected for me and I have to use the finger printer scanner which always works.

No. That was for the S8+, this was for the S8.

I haven't tried it on my 2015 Murano but on my 2017 Civic Hatchback Sport Touring yes there is a DELAY. I hate using Bluetooth now that USB is available. I have my Samsung 32GB Fit.

Wow mobile offering $100 prepaid mastercard for new Koodo sign-ups right now: https://www.wowmobile.ca/en/smartphones ... galaxy-s8/ - combine with Koodo $50 referral credit and $50 minimum trade-in at Wow mobile to get about the only deal available on the S8 right now.

Not a super hot deal (which is why I only posted it here, not in hot deals)... But for those looking to buy any way, it's better than nothing :)

Koodo is owned by Telus. No, it's not outright, or unlocked. You have to stay with them for 90 days to keep the $100 prepaid MasterCard (and referral credit).

Any of you guys know how to tell the phone play mp3 files through the earpiece instead of the speaker? I have my home phone voicemail forwarded to email and don't want everyone around me to listen to the voicemail when I play it.

Thanks

Found an app 'earpiece' that works for me.

Received my plus yesterday. What kind of protection (back and front) do you recommend.

Wow. Phone dropped from chair height and the front glass cracked. Samsung protective case and screen protector were installed.

Samsung Store says there are no replacement parts, and could take four weeks to repair. That would be terrible service.

Time to buy something that's at least a little bit robust?

Dam. That sucks. I guess you need 2 inch of steel to protect it. Buying samsung care won't help.

Need to switch to temper glass protector with otter box.

Damn. What kind of case did you have?
I got a UAG case but might switch to the Alcantara case.
