So the other day while getting into my car my S8 dropped out of my pocket and onto our garage floor, I did not notice this and backed over the friken thing and smashed it (it was in a case). Anyway covered by insurance and I paid the excess and thought I would upgrade to the S8+ which I did. I must say I do find it a lot better than my S8.

 

Anybody else done this move up to the S8+ or possibly the note 8 (thought about it but decided not to).

I upgraded my S3 to an S8+ just last wednesday. I was rather pressed to upgrade as the S3 would not get out of the initial boot screen so was a bit faulty. I was rather 'put out' that they had changed the micro USB connector to a type C USB connector but I have one other device so equiped so I can live with that.
Still getting to know the device so have not fully customised it (yet).

That is a pretty impressive upgrade there is a lot of tech advances since the S3 , I find the C usb night and day against the bloody micro usb which you always try and plug in the wrong way 9 time out of 10.

 

You will love the S8(+) they are a fantastic phone.
