      They act like reporting on a problem that some people in this very comment section are having is an attack on them personally.

    Im having freezes while watching RU-clip on my Note 8. I have a Exynos version but im getting the same freezes Snapdragon users get. Maybe I will switch to Huawei or Nokia. Im kind of sick of Samsung. I pay 1000 Euros for a phone then I get this shit!

    I just got this device and it's freezing when I launch a web browser, chrome or Samsung internet.

    My GN8 has been freezing for months., and it's incredibly annoying. I actually was under the false impression that it _was_ rock solid. Until I saw this guy's video (ru-clip.com/video/V05Cow3eSi0/video.htmlm29s), but he kept calling it lag, so it didn't really register for me. But then it hit me that he was referring to all of the freezing up that I had been experiencing for months.
    I initially (unconsciously) thought this was normal. Meaning, all phones freeze up and have issues, right? But once I realized this was "a thing" with the GN8, it really pissed me off that I bought a phone for nearly 1G that is basically a flawed lemon!

    May 21, 2018 : I myself got this strange problem , all of a sudden my Note 8 showed a message "Process IU not responding " just like that... could not click on anything could not switch off either ... frozen... for 2 days! and then this evening when I checked if the battery already discharged, suddenly to my surprise, the phone is ok ...I was supposed to take it to the store where I bought the Note 8 to show them the message but it was gone and the phone is in function again :) strange :)

    My Note 8 is freezing when I am doing a video. It froze on me twice during my granddaughter's 1st birthday party 🤨 It was very hard to even reboot. You have to hold down the volume down button and power button for a few seconds and then after it thinks about it, reboots.

    I’ve had mine for two days, and yes. Said my UI wasn’t responding- and had to hard reset. Pretty pissed. First time with an Android, switching from iPhone. And I’ve NEVER experienced this before. It’s unsettling to say the least. Do you think this will be an ongoing issue

    another misleading video targeted just to have,,views,, on RU-clip, plese don't trick people into watching in with using informative thumb with the phone on the screen and then just showing your moronic face throughout whole video

    This has been an issue that involves the S pen. If you scroll or open apps with the S PEN you will experience periodic freezing of the note 8.

    My phone has been locking up one a day ... It happens when i'm on a conference call, mostly but not alway.. I use my phone as a alarm clock and it locked up in the middle of the night.

    I just experience my phone freezing today. I had to go to RU-clip for fix.

  • Matthew Testerman

    Brand new phone -- had issues at setup. Finally got it working... But had many apps crash already... Just now, it just froze on the lock screen -- I wasn't even doing anything! I am going to return my phone. I honestly would not say it's "rock solid". I like many features of the note 8 but I cannot depend on the phone. I may switch back to iPhone (they have issues too... but that phone never froze during a call or in lock screen mode). I am not a fan boy of either...

  • Joe Smith

    I have a Note 8 and love its functionality. Issues like the phone restarting 4 or 5 times a day, like mine does, makes me start thinking about going back to an iPhone. The iPhones may not be on the cutting edge most of the time and they are boring, but they do not crash like this.

    Using note 8 since last 2 months... During phone call sometimes phone gets stuck when call ended... Nothing happened. It automatically restarts after 10 to 15 minutes.
    Not expected from Samsung. At least in note 8 :(

    No problem with mine and I have it for work, numerous calls and not one problem.
    Update : Just had it happen to me this morning. First time I have had my Samsung Bluetooth headphones hooked up to my phone and it happened. Forced restart. Only difference was connected to my Bluetooth headphones.

    Haven't had a single issue on my Note 8, actually been surprised how I haven't come across any issues what so ever and nothing to even complain about with the device.

      Omar Shahid Mughal ..yep same here..I keep my Note 8 clean w/ cache cleared daily. Optimize your memory and storage on a regular basis is a good idea. We have to remember that the Note 8 is simply a hand held computer w/ a phone.💻📲🤓

    I have had it happen 2 times and have had to do a force reboot. I could not tell what caused it. Both times it was connected to Bluetooth in the car. Hopefully will be addressed with future software updates.
