Telus update to Samsung Galaxy S8 renders Bixby button no longer "remappable"

The company doesn't want it to have the same fate as S Voice, which many Galaxy users ignore and disable, so it's doing everything that it can to make sure that its customers will give Bixby a try.

Interestingly, there is also a dedicated thread on Reddit now where the "Red tint" issue on the Galaxy S8 is being discussed. The Galaxy S8 will hit the shelves on April 21 in the country. There are speculations that this may move may remain for the next two months or three months prior to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch.

Given that Samsung is still one of the most popular smartphone brands worldwide even after their Note 7 fiasco past year, its latest product - an artificial intelligence powered smart assistant - gets a big market to be tested. A user can communicate with his device through speaking different commands.

The AMOLED edge-to-edge curved display on Samsung's new Galaxy S8 has been widely praised as one of the phone's crowning features - but unfortunately, it seems some models may not be living up to expectations.

Google Home now supports multiple users
Google said Google Assistant on Google Home should recognise you going forward and be personalised to you - from music to news. Future "OK Google " commands are compared to the previous analysis, and Google Home decides if it's a match.

A flurry of postings contained photos comparing the Samsung phones and their earlier counterparts, sarcastically dubbing the S8 series the "cherry blossom edition". However, it still remains to be seen how many customers who have placed a pre-order actually end up buying the Galaxy S8. The phones are IP68 water and dust resistant, MicroSD support up to 256GB, always-on display and have fast and wireless charging capabilities.

Testing prior to the launch of the S8 suggested the display is the best you can buy.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro also comes with a massive 6 GB random-access memory (RAM), which will definitely be able to handle the bump in the storage space. It is the preferred device because of improved user friendliness and security features.
