Cary just got the Samsung Galaxy S8 and she's having issues while voice texting. It's mostly syntax because the voice texting is putting spaces where they don't belong. Leo says that it could be a keyboard behavior with the Samsung Keyboard. She should try using a different keyboard. She can try Google's GBoard or SwiftKey. Both are free.

Ryan has an iPhone 7 and he's thinking of getting an HTC Ultra. Worth it? Leo says that he doesn't think so. HTC made great phones for years with great speakers and long battery life. But lately, they've been courting the low cost Asian market with tinny speakers and awful battery life.
If Ryan wants a good Android phone, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 is worth getting because of it's bezel-less design. He'll get a larger screen without having to carry a larger phone.
Leo got the Samsung Galaxy S8 this week and it has a 6.2" screen, but it's a bit weird because of its aspect ratio. Like the iPhone 5 which had a tall, narrow screen, the S8 is doing the same thing to make it tall and larger without being wider. The edge is more aesthetic and has less usable area as before. It is "bezel-less" now, so the image goes edge to edge making it look larger without being wider. It's not the same camera as the S7 – it's extremely nice with an upgraded sensor.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy S8 and S8+ which continues to get rid of the bezel area, and now, has gotten rid of the home button. There's a virtual home button now that is also rotatable — sort of. Leo thinks that Apple will follow suit and do the same thing.
