What screen protectors do you guys use/recommend for the S8 (not plus)? Was looking at many on Amazon, and many reviews stating screen protectors don't cover entire screen, or won't stick to edges causing lifting in cases. 

I've had good luck with both the Otium and Ottao TGSP's on my GS8+.  

I don't have any adhesive or sticking issues because after applying the TGSP, I always turn off the phone and heat up the glue with a heat gun on low setting.

I use Zagg and let them install it at the mall.

I use the liquid ones. I have two boxes of two inside each one. I bought the wrong ones for my device ( have 8 plus) it's from IQ Shield and it's case friendly, has little space between the edge of the case. If you want them, I'll ship you them for a few bucks.

No. B41 will have 4x4 mimo 64qam and 256 qam and hopefully 64qam up. The S8 just doesn't support 256qam on B41. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

Pretty sure it was the other way around, supported 256qam on b41 but no 4x4. Hopefully it's now supported, but would have to go through FCC for re-certification

I was told the S8 doesn't support 256 qam. I've heard every Sprint LTE phone supports 4x2 mimo so I'm am sure the S8 supports 4x4.

Quote from fox article..

 

"The phone also supports 3x carrier aggregation and 256 QAM on Sprint, and will be able to get 4x4 MIMO coverage on the 1900MHz PCS band with a "future software update." That will extend 1900MHz coverage for this phone. However, the S8 is not a full gigabit phone on Sprint, as it won't have 4x4 MIMO on the 2.5GHz band. Sprint demoed gigabit capabilities last month using a future Motorola device."

Wow. I didn't know that. So does support 256qam on both B25 and 41? Wonder if they plan for it on B26 in the future.

Like he said though the MIMO option on b41 and b25 seems to indicate that the S8 could possibly be recertified for 4x4 mimo on b41. This is a beta though so hold all judgements for the final build.

That's really good because I have a pixel 2 XL and I'm looking to possibly return the phone and use the S8 I have
