Just to add to @Inyourbox the S8 will only work on VoLTE if bought direct from EE.

 

VoWiFi will work regardless where purchased.

Re: does the Galaxy S8 have voLTE

If you have an unlocked variant bought direct from Samsung ( usually Fw version BTU in the UK), or from elsewhere, you need to flash EE's firmware ( Fw EVR) to enable VoLTE. 

 

This is quite simple and their firmware does not carry any bloat or boot logo etc. 

 

My current S8 was from Samsung direct and I did just this.

Search Google.

 

No one here will or should tell you how as you could end up bricking your phone rendering it useless if you make a mistake and we or EE will not take any responsibiliy if this happens and it would most likely trip Knox and void warranty.

 

There are plenty of guides out there on how to do it though.

My unlocked / SIM free Galaxy S8 (XEU) had a firmware update to version CRC7 and VoLTE now works on EE without the EE firmware.
