The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have had a relatively scandal-free life so far, and while that sounds like a dig at the Galaxy Note 7, most phones usually have some kind of issue, however small. And unfortunately for Samsung, the Galaxy S8’s tiny issue is here.
Tons of users have been reporting missing text messages on their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and it seems to affect users on all major carriers. One of our own writers at Talk Android has also been experiencing the issue, and there are Reddit posts filled with complaining users, so it’s not an isolated incident.
The problem doesn’t only impact the default messaging app on the phone, so third-party apps and services are still affected. There are tons of potential solutions to the problem, like turning WiFi and advanced messaging off, but they’re not solving the problem for everyone.
The issue is gaining traction because of how many users are experiencing the problem, but Samsung has been mum so far. It is a relatively small problem, to be fair, but it’s a definite annoyance to anyone that’s dealing with it. Fingers crossed Samsung is silently working on patching it behind the scenes.
Maybe it’ll speed up Android Oreo for the device. Silver lining, right?
