    The S8+ screen is smaller than the screen on the N5? I have the N5 thinking about the S8+ but definitely don't want to reduce my screen size.

    Screen is bigger but the overall size of the phone is smaller. It's just a touch longer than the ote 5 but thinner than the Note 5

    I'm 2 full days into the S8 and I am absolutely loving this phone. I've had over 6 hours of screen on time in 21hrs off the charger, and I'm still at 18% battery. That's with WiFi, Bluetooth, and high accuracy location turned on. I should mention that's that's all with almost 3 hours if playing Pokémon Go lol.
    I haven't had any issues with the iris scanner indoors, even while wearing my glasses. I'm not having much issue with the fingerprint either, and I've got pretty small hands.
    The touchscreen is almost TOO sensitive for me though. But I do not have a screen protector on it yet.

    Jackie, I agree. The battery life is crazy good! Also, unless you changed it, your screen resolution is set to mid level, WQHD+ in display. I tried it and didn't see enough of a difference to use it as a daily setting but if I watch a show/movie, I move it up. Sho far, I'm very impressed with this phone!

    An S8+ for me, another S8+ for my better half, and opt-in on a Galaxy For Life subscription for both!

    I've had my S8+ for thew days now and while it's superb at everything out does it doesn't quite have the wow/gloat factor that I still have with my S6 Edge Plus.

    I'm still not used to the long thin screen and still prefer the screen on my S6 Edge Plus.

    Galaxy S8 plus problem if anyone can help

    I'm not getting notifications/alerts from tweets from people I subscribe to. I'm not sure why this is a problem because I DO get Twitter notifications if someone send me a Twitter message. In just move over to Samsung from iPhone and it worked on there.. am wondering if it's a feature not available on android?

    If changed the battery optimization for Twitter but it never changed anything buy as I said I don't think it's Twitter notifications in general as I do get them.for messages just not subscribed tweets.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    Welcome to DroidForums, Djlukeashford!

    You should be able to fix your Twitter notification problem by going into the notification settings in the Twitter app. Open up your Twitter app then go to the bell notification icon at the top, then select the settings gear icon on the bottom right. From there you can set which kind of Twitter notifications you would like to receive.

    I did consider getting the s8+ because I do not use the stylus as much a I used to but three things stopped me, first, I still have five months to go with at$t paying off the note 5 and the thought of the Note 8 that will be released about the time I pay off at$t. and finally that fingerprint scanner being on the back. I use it too much and when I looked at the display model, it seemed too inconvenient to use.
