Common Samsung S8 Problems

If you are experiencing problems with your S8, you can either decide to have the issues fixed at an authorized repair service or do it yourself.
Screen issues are very common in many smartphones and the Samsung s8 is not an exception. The 5.8-inch touchscreen display is sensitive and it’s therefore susceptible to damage.
Here are some of the common screen issues you’d get with the phone:
- Red Tint on the Display – In this case, a red tint forms across the screen from left to right. This is a generic problem and if you have a warranty, you can get a replacement anytime.
- Unresponsive screen – The screen simply hangs and nothing happens. In some cases the screen may also go blank but it’s very rare with the Samsung S8.
- Damaged screen – Although Samsung did a great job of building a stronger more durable display, it’s still not 100% damage proof. The Samsung S8 screen can be broken or scratched through falling and normal wear and tear.
Screen issues are very delicate and it would be nice to have the phone checked by an expert at authorized third-party repair centers like iRepair or the Samsung Service Center. Screen replacements at the Samsung Service Center will cost about $433.
