About Samsung Galaxy S8:
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger Galaxy S8+ sibling are arguably two of the best-looking, and best-performing smartphones this half of the year. But as great as they are, they are by no means perfect. Even the Samsung faithful will admit, sometimes begrudgingly, that the Korean OEM can be a wee too “generous” when it comes to the extras, a.k.a. the cruft and bloat, inside the smartphone user experience or UX.
If you’re feeling adventurous, there are a couple of Android custom ROMs available for these devices to set you free from the clutches of TouchWiz (or now “Grace”) and of Samsung’s bloat.
