Itoodlers not welcome on my thread
>>
>>64092608
you dont really need to tweak it much.

Maybe disable the animations and replace the stock Samsung apps for google´s
>>
>>64092632
>replace the stock Samsung apps for google´s
Never fucking do this, the google apps are more bloatware than the Samsung versions, which are optimized for their hardware.

Seriously, samsung apps have been better than google trash since the S6 days.
>>
>>64092685

BULLSHIT.

The Samsung browser is utter shit, google Chrome is faster and better.
>>
>>64092608
return it and buy an iphone x
>>
>>64092714
Holy fuck you're retarded.

The Samssung browser TROUNCES the chrome browser. Chrome is slow as dog shit compared to the samsung browser, and samsung browser has had a built in ad blocker for over a year, chrome JUST added that.

install nova launcher prime

First step: Find a folder to place all the bloat in. You have your google bloat, samsung bloat and carrier bloat, I recommend a folder to store all this in as it can't be uninstalled.

Second step: Install an anti-virus. Viruses are become more and more common for android and it will only get worse in a couple years when google blocks security updates on the Note 8 when it becomes 2 years old.

Step 3: Know your bounds. Remember your phone is not as fast as an iPhone X so don't go expecting those crazy speeds.

Step 4: Get ready to replace it in November 2019 when it stops getting supported due to being 2 years old.

Samsung browser is just a frontend for webview.

The S6 just got the December 2017 security patch.

It was released in April 2015. So 2.7 years after it launched it's still getting security patches.

I'd expect it to receive it's final security patch when the S9 releases. Making a full 3 years of updates.
>>
>>64092608
switch the navigation buttons to the non retarded position
>>
Shouldn't you be trying to shill somewhere that'll be more successful for you, Joo-won?
>>
>>64092885
Which adds a ton of features chrome doesn't have.

The samsung browsers lets you use your fingerprint as a password for all your websites. Just enter your normal password once and it will remember it and allow you to log in next time with just your finger print.
>>
>>64092889
Wow, so 3 years of security patches not 2. So generous.

The iPhone 5s is from 2013 and it's still getting full support.
>>
>>64092916
Who gives a fuck? It's iShit.

Samsung is the best android manufacturer for updates besides google phones.

>Samsung is the best android manufacturer for updates besides google phones.

Wow, 3 years of security updates and 2 years of full support. So generous samsung. Meanwhile superior, faster iPhones get 5 years or more.
>>
>>64092906
There are other vastly superior webview browsers with more features, such as naked browser.

My point was to point how retarded you are for thinking chrome is slower when it literally is Chrome underneath.
>>
>>64092608
Install LOS on it, because you don't want to be raped by at least two companies, right?
>>
>>64092964
It's optimized chrome with more features, and yes, it is literally faster. You can benchmark it yourself if you feel up to it.
>>
>>64092995
>doesn't know what frontend is

Fucking brainlets

I'm out.
>>
>>64092960
2 years of support BUT you're always one version behind the latest. How the fuck is that anything but shit.
>>
>>64093015
It's not just a front end you stupid cuck, it's chromium based, that doesn't mean they just reskinned chrome you ignorant sack of cunt smear.
>>
>>64092776

Switching between tabs is slower on the samsung browser

starting up the browser is slower on the samsung browser

>MUH SAMSUNG BROWSER SPEED!

No shit, block the ads and chrome will be also faster
>>
>>64092738


But the iPhone X is shit

Also, I like my spen

>>64093029

Unnecessary waste of money, TBQH family. Might as well gotten an iP8, or if you like to show off your phone, iPX. Honestly, I'm surrounded with friends who own Samsung products, and I can, without a doubt, honestly say that planned obsolescence is far more prevalent in their products compared to any other company.

Install a custom firmware.

These are the kind of people who would buy a gun, shoot themselves and sue the government for not stopping them.
