Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ users reporting fast charging issues after recent update

Firmware update has screwed up my fast charging feature on S8+; tested charging block on S7 Edge and all is fine! Good ol' Samsung and there software updates again. Bunch of idiots who accept no responsibility!
@SamsungSupport my s8 stopped fast charging after the latest update. It takes almost 6 hours to charge. HELP!— Marielena Hernandez (@9a51831a9c4f445) November 26, 2017
@SamsungSupport GM, My fast charger for my galaxy S8 just stopped working. I now say 5 hours to charge. I went into settings to see it fast charger was still on & it is. Can you help please? Thank you!— Etica (@justeeks) November 13, 2017
Aside from Twitter, Samsung's own forums are also filled with similar complaints, with users confirming they are using the original Samsung charger and have fast charging enabled in battery settings.
Some even say wireless charging has also been affected, but those reports aren't widespread. Officially, Samsung hasn't said anything on the matter yet.
I did notice that currently it only does slow charging since yesterday (I installed the update on friday night) on my device. I have the US unlocked version.

Use a second phone. Why complain so much. If can afford an S8 you think I cant afford other phone? ; )
