Hi All,
Got my phone this week (Gearbest) and I must say so far soo good.
I'm happy with my purchase. Apart from the camera issue I haven't noticed any of the faults others are having.
I've installed many apps from play store without any problem. So far I've had to charge it every other day.
Then again i'm not a heavy user or perhaps i'm just lucky.
As it stands the only thing I can find to complain about is the fact that the screen protector is not on properly.......
I'll report other findings as and well I come across them.

You wrong. I repeat (with my terrible english):  Your style it's a nazi and suspect style.
We will, in the next days, the youtube unpacking and review.
The trouble in the corner it seem a production defect like showed in a specific video in You tube:

The speaker say "It's a production defect..."

Elephone starts as usual...

Don't mind him.
They've sent him a bad unit and now he's telling everyone how bad the S8 is. It's only because he's frustrated with the lack of service he's getting. I really think GearBest or Ele should send him a new unit but he shouldn't be telling everyone how bad the S8 is because it makes no sense.
Mine looks perfect and works awesome. Some little quirks perhaps but that's just software and can be solved.
For $240 this is the best phone I've ever had! The screen is gorgeous and the build quality is great.

Agree with you on the rear camera. The focus is so slow

I miss Double tap to wake too, but I us ...

I cant remember where i heard it, but the company are aware of the slow focus on the rear camera and they are working on a softwarefix for it.

Quite possible that most issues will be fixed in a software update.

That being one of the problems. The screen goes skits and thinks it's being pressed when it's not. Social media videos are only shown in low quality 180p The camera is slooooow to focus. Not like a split second to long. But a good  couple of seconds to long. The battery is shockingly bad. I am a moderste user and I need to charge it in the afternoon. I am constantly using 3.5 GB of ram even when it's been factory  I reset with minimal apps added and none being used. Supposedly elephone and gearbest has quality controlled this phone but I have damage under the "glass" rear cover on three corners and the back cover is lifting from one corner. The WiFi is shoddy. If I am in my bedroom it shows a strong connection but is again sooooo sloooooooow. The back is also a grease magnet to the point it might as well have been made with a matt finish. And.to be honest the screen is no better than my redmi 4 prime I had previously. Even the fitted screen protector is smaller than the screen! The software is laggy and the UI crashes constantly. Poor all round. Absolute crap.

you're among the first one with a S8 here on the forum it seems.

you're probably not the only one that got the S8, but maybe the first one that ran in to trouble and joined the forum to find some solution.

Maybe you can check the warranty with the seller, and see if you can get a replacement
