After Google’s new Pixel 2 smartphone, it has now come to light that Samsung’s latest flagship – Galaxy Note8 – is also experiencing major problems. A large number of users at Samsung’s official forums are complaining that their units are freezing in different use-cases.
The most common use-case affected users are reporting is that the freeze occurs while accessing the contacts app – both directly or indirectly (like, while making a call or accessing the Phone or Messenger apps).
Once the $1,000 device freezes, it becomes unresponsive to the level that you have to do a force restart, or let the phone’s battery drain completely (which is again, effectively, a restart).
The problem doesn’t seem to be limited to an particular region/country, as users from the US as well as Europe are facing it. Samsung is yet to offer an official statement on the matter.
