Firmware update has screwed up my fast charging feature on S8+; tested charging block on S7 Edge and all is fine! Good ol’ Samsung and there software updates again. Bunch of idiots who accept no responsibility!

Aside from Twitter, Samsung’s own forums are also filled with similar complaints, with users confirming they are using the original Samsung charger and have fast charging enabled in battery settings.

Some even say wireless charging has also been affected, but those reports aren’t widespread. Officially, Samsung hasn’t said anything on the matter yet.
