6.) The phone is not good optimize yet. They is still frame dropping in animation. This need to sort out, I believe is the Bixby causing it as if using Nova the animation is extremely smooth but not in stock launcher yet cause I still see frame drop issue in animation. Optimization is still needed.

Nav bar I always prefer white. By the way I think Singapore still haven't release this new firmware yet right as not mentioned in Sammobile yet, kind of surprise.

S8 - https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/SM-G950FD/
S8+ - https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/SM-G955FD/
The latest update will auto hide the nav bar? Anyone flash the latest firmware for other countries?

Samsung's on-screen fingerprint sensor rumored to cause display brightness issues

http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-...ghtness-issues

From article
"......integration of the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 8 prototype failed as it led to uneven screen brightness. Apparently, the area occupied by the fingerprint sensor looked brighter than the rest of the the screen....

Samsung reportedly made a last minute decision to omit the on-screen fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 due to time constraints and technical issues."

Thanks.
Check your location setting. If it is location based weather, you will have to enable to along with GPS and refresh it to get the location name right.

Tried with the original adapter cable will have this problem too.

Bought 2 cables that support fast charge also have this problem. It happens like maybe 3 times out of 10 times charging with power bank and 3rd party anker USB adapter
