Despite only being out for little over a week, the Samsung Galaxy has already been hit with two major problems – three if you include the issues with Samsung’s digital assistant, Bixby.
Earlier this week, customers in South Korea who were among the first to receive the new smartphones complained that their display started to develop a strange red tint.
Despite initially playing down the issue, saying users could fix the problem by altering the colour settings on their device, the Korean firm was later forced to release a software update to fix affected devices.
In a statement, Samsung said it “…has decided to release a software update starting from this week which will provide consumers with a further enhanced ability to adjust the colour setting to their preference”
Now users are complaining of another major problem with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Samsung’s social media pages and official support forum have been flooded with complaints from users who say their Galaxy S8s keep on randomly restarting themselves.
One user said:
“So I picked up my Galaxy s8 and everything seems to be working well except the phone keeps restarting itself. I have had it for about 10 hours now and it has already restarted 7 times while I was using it”.
While another added: “I keep having the same problem. But when mine restarts all me apps keep rearranging”.
Samsung is yet to officially comment on the issue and it is unclear the reasons the devices keep on restarting and if there is a simple fix or part a bigger issue.
The news comes as Samsung confirmed the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will go on general sale in Thailand on May 5.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will cost 27,900 baht, while the larger S8+ will cost 30,900 baht, the company said.
