Ok figured this out. Go to settings and under display find resolution and slide that bar to the MAX!! Fixed the issue for me.

I have S8 Plus and tried the resolution maxed and tried entertainment mode. Still in youtube only goes up to 1440 I thought 4k was 2000 something

You said it @Oreo6432! You guys are awesome for helping each other out. I love to see this kind of stuff. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a tiny bit jealous ya'll get to play with S8's, as I'll have to wait a bit. If you guys would like, check out my blog post I created here - Unbox Your Phone.....AND Your Thoughts!

 

Let me know what ya'll think about your new S8's there. I'd love to read about it.
