Re: Why Samsung S8+ SM-G955F don't have support?

This is really disappointing. If they can't get their **bleep** together, there is no legitimate reason to stay loyal to Gopto anymore. Other camera manufacturers are churning out similar or even better products at lower price points and are compatible with the phones early on. 

 

We are paying a premium on Gopro products and these issues should be adressed in a timely manner. I can understand a month or 2, buit anything longer than that is just not right. Gopro is in the tech space, and if they can't adapt quickly to support new devices as they come out, maybe Gopro should just get out of the space or at least try to do something for their customers .
