Aptx HD? Licensing is a likely cause if one would assume.

Doesnít LDAC require specific hardware on the listeners end as well?
Yes, you need LDAC capable headphones (aka Sony headphones, for now in the market).

Using the poetic revolution case which comes with in-built screen protector. So far so good drop my phones twice but no dent or scratches to phone and the back of the case is matte feel.

Anyone tried guardian series?

Finally got my issue fixed

F**king hell Samsung, they don't even know what the fuk happened

IMEI and serial number is registered for sale in Singapore but the CSC is TEB (Bosnia). Tell them they don't believe until they remote access and see it themselves on the phone

Wasted 1 week of ding dong and 2 hrs at the service center for them to re-flash everything.

It will be more significant with the LDAC music format that comes with Oreo when using wireless Bluetooth headphones. The current AptX format is not as high quality as LDAC. Wonder why Samsung did not upgrade to AptX HD for Note8 when AptX HD is much superior to AptX.

LG is more audiophile-friendly than Samsung with better audio hardware and audio software.

Then again, wired connection is still much better than wireless connection when it comes to audio enjoyment.
S8 in Taiwan already received their 8.0 update and it supports LDAC. I think there is no reason for Samsung not to include for Note8.

If your phone still boots and performs fine you are okay.

Is there currently a working package disabler for note 8?

I remember purchasing once from playstore after purchasing my note 5, the developer server problem end up had to email em to reinstall the app on my note 5 and the playstore account purchased history no longer indicate it was purchased under my google acc. Felt like it's a scam by developer to wipe record and now new devices no longer can install.

Now had to search for purchase reciept to email em again or they renew their policy purchase only on limited device to earn more instead of purchase once like it was used to be. Will email em and await their respond.

My pen for my Note 8 is faulty now. When using the pen, the very small circles does not appear when I place the tip near the screen. And I noticed that the pen seems to be constantly performing a "touch" function all the time. Meaning, when I place the tip over the home button and hold there, google is activated (eg like a double touched happened). When I swipe the screen without the tip touching the screen, the screen swipe as well. Tested another Note 8 pen on my Note 8 is working. Looks like have to go service already. Anyone knows the accessories warranty is 6 months or 12 months? Thanks.

You honestly don’t need to worry about recovery mode errors unless you are doing anything else that affects the FW on it. Factory resetting or clearing cache is fine. The one few things you really don’t want to mess is is efs. Once that corrupts unless you have backed it up you have to go to service center.
