looks like ill be sending it back to samsung, will post back and see what they say [email protected] by the way what screen protector you got on your s8+ mate, ive tried a few from amazon with great reviews but they just dont stick around the edges, seems like the reviews on amazon and the screen apps need a firm push..at the moment ive got a film protector on that i cut to fit the s8, also ordered a spigen aromour case..what sd card are you using ?

just a cheap one mate tbh as you say they start peeling at the curve
I use a flip case (Book Style) not to everyone's taste but I like the protection

Johnny I bought a zizo bolt series case from amazon.com I only paid less than a tenner and they gave free glass curved screen protector. . Protector didnt work with their own case but I put a spigen case on and its never lifted yet and Ive had mine since launch

I'm using a Samsung 64gb SD card in my S8+ apart from a few bluetooth problems when I first got it, which were sorted with a software update, it's bee performing great.

I use the Samsung LED flip case with no scree protector. I've never used a screen protector but always been very careful with my phones though.

just watched the video on Mobile Fun about this protector, doesn't look like it goes totally over the curve so shouldn't lift ?

samsung fixed my s8 sd card issue...now im having another problem...im getting sick of this s8.....camera gives blurry images, tried to see if a software update was available and was presented with the screen (see pic). My s8 is 100% original, never modded or rooted....looks like a return back to samsung again...

To be honest that is why I hate buying mobile phones online where retaining might be an issue have you tried resetting the phone to factory default usually helps also how much did Samsung say they can fix it for
