do you have play store crashes ?

So far my play store is ok, even when downloading shows it is stuck at 7% but the app will eventually get installed. I want to root the phone because the gameplay is very laggy, battery drains very fast and charging is slow. Most importantly, I have rooted my Redmi Note 2 for 2 years and I enjoyed a almost ad-free phone. I use Lucky Patcher and Purify to block all ads. After I got the S8 I installed just a few apps to test the phone and the ads are overwhelmingly disgusting. It must be rooted first before I can clean it up. So I am still using my RN2.

I am also waiting for real youtube reviewers to say something about their S8. Not those paid to review.

Some are very satisfied. https://bbs.elephone.hk/forum.ph ... 2&fromuid=90419  
Maybe your device passed quality control on a Monday morning.
See if you can get a replacement, and pray for one that had Quality Control on a Wednesday

Maybe a ful wipe and re-installation solves this.

Make sure you write down Wifi-MAC, IMEIs and Serial before formatting!
You need SP-Flash-Tool (Version 1.1728 shoud do), SN-Writer and the latest firmware-package (look on needrom.com if there is a later version available).  

If you need a step-by-step-guide, look in the M3-Forum.

When I check my pictures in the Gallery app (I have tried several different apps) I can clearly see that the phone applies a sharpen filter (NOT the camera, this is AFTER the picture is taken) when I open a picture and zoom in.
I have set the Sharpen setting in Miravision all the way to the left (lowest setting) but still it clearly applies a sharpen filter when viewing pictures.
I don't want any sharpen filter. How can I turn it off completely so I can judge the quality of the pictures?

Farsiray I've not talked to anyone who has actually received the phone that's happy with it. As for the joke about Monday morning quality control of say elephone in general is a joke. I should have listened to past owners. As for the idea of flashing it....I paid for a working product. I didn't pay for a hobby. I expect something to work without my having to tinker with it.

I'm happy with it, you've also read that in the topic asking what people think about the phone. You've received a phone with problems, I haven't heard anyone else who's so unhappy with it. You make it sound like all S8 phones are as bad as yours but that's not the case. Mine is fine, no problems except for a few software "bugs" I'd like to see straightened out. And what are you talking about "past owners"??? This phone's only been out for a few weeks.

seen by the photo's you posted of your phone, you should seriously considering getting a replacement. That backscreen doesn't look right. Have you contacted GearBest?

Then you may have thought a little bit before going for CHEAP instead of higher-priced brands?
Honestly, what do you expect?
What do you think where the prices come from?
Do you really expect to pay 25-50% and still get the same quality?





But then... ok... needing to flash manually or fully wipe a phone is common with high-priced phones, too. Just like firmware-bugs, battery-drain, bad camera-software etc.
To bo more precise: the phones that get Custom-ROMs, Custom-Recovery and Rooting-Methods are the most expensive and most sold ones. Guess why...

Hello,

new owner of Elephone S8. I live in Italy.

Device is really impossible to use because there are a lot of Google Play Services crashes and there are no solutions around here.

Really disappointed of this buggy software.   OS Build : Elephone_S8_20170927

I suggest the same: format the device and flash the latest firmware yourself.
