About time

It should not be forced like that anyways. I have the S8 and cut a notch in my case to avoid pressing it. Bixby is flawed and is still not ready for release (it's still a beta program). Samsung kept coming out with software patches as people kept finding ways around having that button activate every time. Looks like they are finally admitting defeat at least as far as that is concerned. It should still be a choice as to what we want to have associated with that. I'm sure that 99% of people would rather have the button linked to Google, opening the camera, or just completely disabled.

Disadvantages

No mention in the article of disadvantages of an unlocked phone, WiFi calling is a feature I can't live without, as the signal is weak in my home. AT&T, for one, does not enable WiFi calling on unlocked phones.

Unlocked Galaxy S8 and S8+

No carrier bloatware is about the only lure for these 18.5:9 display ratio screen phone.

Oh but have they fixed burn-in issues?

They need to address the biggest drawback of these devices and that's the infamous AMOLED burn-in. You can always tell what a person does the most based on what gets burned into their screens.

Samsung Promotion

The promotion no longer includes the Gear VR with controller. You get a headset, 64GB memory card and the 6 months of Netflix.

Nice deal

But I would rather wait and hope that the Galaxy S9 comes out and hopefully Samsung stops with that ridiculous 18.5:9 aspect ratio display.

but carrier-branded bloatware will be absent............

Makes it very appealing.
Verizon and AT&T are the worst of the "bloatware" bunch.

I Have both

My s8 is my goto device. Im using them on Sprint and the coverage bars are usually higher on the S8 also. G6 is a good device, just seems a lil rushed.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung blew it when they started playing around with the screen ratio on the S8.
Who in their right mind when 16:9 has been out for years problem free makes it 18.5:9?????
There are going to be some issues in the coming months with it. If you ask what they are, just wait for people to start complaining.

over in the "AT&T Says '5G Evolution' to Reach 20 Markets This Year" discussion:

Here we go again with the meaningless war of words that AT&T is sure to start with the other carrier

T-Mobile has already been doing all of those things AT&T has said they will be doing but it isn't calling their network "5G". Just more meaningless marketing mumbo jumbo from the folks at AT&T.

Hopefully this covers Wi-Fi connectivity issues

I have an S8+ from At&t and I'm having issues staying connected to Wi-Fi networks, especially when using Wi-Fi calling. Anytime I use Wi-Fi calling, I get disconnected from Wi-Fi within 5 minutes. Anyone else having similar issues?
