Samsung Galaxy S8 and its companion known as Galaxy S8 Plus are not perfect, but both flagships have been well received, and the pre-orders hit new highs in most markets. As expected, the US is no exception, but the gap between the new record and last year's Galaxy S7/S7 Edge pre-orders is quite impressive.
According to an email that Samsung Electronic America's President and COO Tim Baxter recently sent, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ managed to achieve "more than 30 percent year-over-year growth in pre-orders versus the record pre-orders we had with Galaxy S7." Sadly, he did not reveal the detailed figures.
The Galaxy S8 flagships have no problems with their battery, but their display. A red tint has been reported many times, and Samsung claims this is nothing more but a software issue that would be fixed by an update soon.
Those who skip the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ now will be able to get the Note 8 this fall, especially large screen lovers, since the next-gen Note is expected to feature a 6.4-inch display.
