The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a gorgeous big-screen phone with a comfortable single-handed feel, and it’s packed with top-notch components and promising new software. Recently, Samsung has extended its update promise to three years of upgrades and four years of patches, but that extension only applies to phones from 2019 or later. The Samsung Galaxy S8 came out in 2017, so it clearly falls outside of that window. Therefore, we expected it to have stopped receiving updates by now.
Getting the most out of your Samsung smartphone requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before using your Samsung Galaxy S8. Misuse may result in damage to the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Read this manual in its entirety before using the unit, and save it for future reference.
