Hi all! First time Samsung user after a long line of Anroid phones (after the ill fated Nokia N900). Got an S8 just last month mostly because it ticked all the boxes for what I wanted from my phone: headphone jack, reasonably powerful SoC, at least a FHD screen and possibly waterproofing and means to root. I was against AMOLED for a very long time, I hated the screen on the S3 and could still see artifacts on the S4, and after that I just ignored anything with a pentile-matrix arrangement, but now I'm pleasantly surprised. My previous phones were from Xiaomi right from the MiOne until the Mi4 I used up until now, but I found Xiaomi to go in a way I didn't like (no headphone jack, copying Apple and all the mistakes Apple made along with it, closed bootloaders, etc), and Samsung in the meantime cleaned down TouchWiz to a state where I could tolerate it (in the S4 era it looked like it's own clanky knockoff). It's not to say I didn't find any problems with the S8, but overall it's a good phone I'm happy with.

Suggestion: Samsung Dex on the S8/9 could be more useful with more supported resolutions. Right now only 1600x900 and 1920x1080 (and 1440p) are supported. However in a business environment (where Dex is supposed to be aied at) screens are usually 16:10 or even 4:3, so Dex could be more useful if it could support 1920x1200, 1680x1050 and maybe even 1600x1200 and 1280x1024. Another typical use-case if you go on a short business trip and would like to use the TV in your hotel-room as a screen. These hotel TVs are usually low resolution, like 1366x768 or 1280x720. Adding these two resolutions would also make it possible to use the older Moto Lapdock-type notebook-shells with Dex. Maybe first add them as Dex Labs feature, but as of now Dex is only well supported on a TV (or some cheap consumer grade screens), which is to say it's not useful all that much.
