over in the "AT&T Says '5G Evolution' to Reach 20 Markets This Year" discussion:

Here we go again with the meaningless war of words that AT&T is sure to start with the other carrier

T-Mobile has already been doing all of those things AT&T has said they will be doing but it isn't calling their network "5G". Just more meaningless marketing mumbo jumbo from the folks at AT&T.

over in the "Samsung to Issue Software Patches for Galaxy S8" discussion:

Hopefully this covers Wi-Fi connectivity issues

I have an S8+ from At&t and I'm having issues staying connected to Wi-Fi networks, especially when using Wi-Fi calling. Anytime I use Wi-Fi calling, I get disconnected from Wi-Fi within 5 minutes. Anyone else having similar issues?

Finger scanner on the back ?

Does anyone that actually makes use of this in their vehicle see a problem with this ?
While I do agree that you can pair your device to unlock automatically when paired to a certain BT device like a car, I do have issues with that in general.

If I put my phone in its car cradle and want to unlock it... I have 3 options
1. Type in password (ugh)
2. Retina scan (not likely)
3. Touch with finger unlock.

Ok - if that's on the back of my phone, while its in a cradle, its not likely going to be feasible, just as driving while attempting to do a retina scan.

Clearly didn't think this part through for those on the road that don't want 'auto unlock' with BT.

Non-Removable Battery

You would think with Samsung's gigantic, costly fiasco with their last phone and their non-removable battery they would make this new phone have a removable battery. Had their last phone had that ability, they could have just sent out replacement batteries for the bad ones instead of replacing the whole phone. I guess they didn't learn. You can't fix stupid.

over in the "Samsung's Bixby Is Far More than A Voice Assistant for the Galaxy S8" discussion:

Good for Samsung

It's distressing to me how Apple just sat on their hands with regards to voice assistance, and let Google and (supposedly) Samsung just zoom by them in this arena. Alexa is so much eaier to use and better sounding than Siri - it gives real answers and not just links to websites - and Bixby appears to be deep-rooted in the OS as well as making the SDK available to developers before launch. To me, Apple really dropped the ball in this regard.

over in the "Samsung Galaxy S8 to Include 'Bixby' Voice-Based User Interface" discussion:

Seems rather Cortana-like

The description in this article makes "Bixby" sound a lot like "Cortana", in that there is not a fixed, predefined set of verbal commands. Rather, "Cortana" is designed for interpreting user commands on the fly and responding as "she" (the cloud-based Artificial Intelligence servers) interprets, while "learning" adjusting in real time.

I use Cortana daily for handling text messaging hands-free while driving, plus a few random searches or navigation requests daily, and for those things Cortana works superbly. But one of the things I dislike about Cortana is that she (AI servers) don't have a specific command list, she is "fluid" and context-based, and always fine-tuning her "intelligence", and so a command that worked perfectly before sudd...
