THE GALAXY S8 started shipping to punters in the UK last week, but it's already ran into its first bit of contoversy.
No, it hasn't set on fire, but users have been quick to complain that the Galaxy S8's display has a 'reddish-tint'. Samsung initially responded to the complaints by saying that there's not really a problem and that users should be able to adjust the setting on the device itself. However, it has since said that it will push out an update to fix the issue after users reported that they were not able to adjust the colour because the display panel was already optimised.
Last week also saw AMD launch its new Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 graphics cards based, like their 400-series predecessors, on the Polaris microarchitecture and built on 14nm FinFET process manufacturing, but with ratcheted up clock speeds.
