Awesome to hear, that's why I never went to the S7 or S7 Edge it just wasn't worth it, both performance and feature wise my Note 5 stays right with the 7 series. But the 8 I would hope is a lot better, maybe I'll go check it out soon I am getting that itch, and plus I never use the spen anyway lol. How are you liking the battery life of the +? better than the S7 Edge?

 

Edit - Well the temptation got to me, just put in my order for the S8+, it will be here tomorrow. Good deal online no activation fee so it was $82.24 out the door, also ordered a case on Amazon for $15 which will be here tomorrow as well. Not a bad $100 spent. :D

$82 out the door from Sprint?   Lease?  Legacy plan upgrade?

I think I finally figured out a big part of my screen lock. That or they finally did some patching that helped. I shut this off. Combined with other high horsepower apps like waze and Google drive and Bluetooth and pandora it was placing my phone into screen lock and fouling up access to unlocking it. There were times the easiest way back in was to reboot the phone. 018bce5418dff693b1b32db29f9b14d2.jpg

Hmm just now seeing this, but I do Easy Pay so I only pay for the taxes up front nothing else.

Got an update on the GS7E yesterday. Anyone know what it was for? Security, I imagine. But I had also been experiencing severe screen mirroring issues with my 2016 55 inch Samsung TV. After yesterday's update, my screen mirroring function appears to be working just fine. For reference, my boyfriend's gs8+ NEVER had issues with the screen mirror feature and he did not receive the same update.

The newest update ends in QF3. You can look in this thread when it came out, but I think it was around the beginning of the month. There haven't been any updates since then to my knowledge.

Yep. Sure enough. I just checked my software version and it ends in "qf3." For whatever reason, however, it only just hit my phone the day I made that post.

Looks like just a security update (July 1st). Still no calling plus, unfortunately.

Ok I'm pretty careful with my phone. But can someone tell me what they think this is. 3f5f40a6219854592f236418db68efdd.jpg

I sure hope so. I would love to try it and then use it if it works well. I have two phones (one personal and one for work), so I can always use the other phone if I need to look something up while on a call, but I think it will be much more convenient to have calling plus enabled.
