I am in the middle East and I have purchased the phone last weekend(s8). Everything was fine until I have installed everything including the previous data from my old phone;mind you I don’t have a SD card . The phone was slowing down due to installing the latest software from Android and all the installed apps. Then it froze on while updating Android at 55%.
I restarted the phone and continued the installation…afterwards the phone started rebooting like crazy none stop to the point I was not able to uninstall anything. I have done everything including factory reset many times. The phone keeps restarting. I have returned the phone and got a full refund…sadly it is a shame because it is a gorgeous phone.
I thought I was the only one with this issue….shame really..I have lost faith in Samsung.
How did you get your refund ? Because Samsung keeps telling me its not in there policy to refund phones It’s frustrating been having the same issues with the phone and this is my 3rd replacement they all had the exact same problem
