I received the Oreo update yesterday - facing 2 issues:
1- Google play store - always closing (HTC support couldn't solve and advised to format)
2- Vibrate when call answered stopped - unless i disable the power saver option (HTC support confirmed that it should be working fine but in vain)
Pooya74, 10 Jan 2018I got it in middle East right after they announced on Twitter. I wonder what's new in OreoMainly optimization, some new edge functionality and keeping my finger crossed for the camera processing improvements like in u11+

BTW. I do have smart boost turned on, its part of the "boost+" HTC in house optimization app that is part of the stock ROMs.

Do you t... moreIf the system got screwed up because of old data in your Cache partition. It will get progressively worse with every OTA update you do without wiping the cache partition first.
The cache partition hold drivers and files that are system critical for fast boot ups and quick app start ups.
Think of it as Virtual memory on a PC, A.K.A. the page file.
When you do a factory reset or update your ROM the cache is not reset or wiped clean.
That means it is still holding old driver data and app data that some times gets restored to your new ROMs that don't need that old information. Or worse, the old cache file over weights a new and improved file/driver that came with the OTA update. When that happens it makes strange things happen that are visible in your UI. that are mistaken by the average person as a phone hardware or OS defect.
But hardware can be tested from
App draw>help>hardware misbehaving>hardware diagnostics
If everything pass in there You don't have a hardware problem.
If the problem is in 1 app, uninstall the app and reinstall it or try a different app to do that same task and see if you have the same problem. (this is to determine if it is a bug in the app that needs to be reported to the app maker.) if the problems is in multiple apps it's your ROMs and you have to wipe your cache partition and factory reset. It's not hard to do and your phone will run faster and smoother with cache partition that was cleaned and repopulated with only up-to date files/drivers.
Trust me, after 18 year of using Smart phones and flashing custom ROMs in the early days of Android & windows mobile (not to be mistaken with Windows Phone) I have seen alot of problems caused by a cache partition with old or corrupted drivers, including audio and camera photo quality problems. And as I said before factory reset alone will not clear the cache partition as it is separate from the partition the OS is installed on.
What I normally do just before I install an OTA update after it is downloaded is power off my phone wipe the cache partition then reboot and install the update with a clean cache partition. That way I avoid having to do it after with a factory reset to fix update problems.
Hey HTC! What about theother regions..many countries and its people...no apology..f**k them!!!

Do you think it might go worse or that's it!?
About youtube..the problem might not be from app because I usually watch it online through google not app, same problem when watching from any website as streaming..when I rotate my U11 page refresh!!
Hardcor, 05 Jan 2018Absolutely! HTC acting stupidly and that will effect its sales. Or update software for all cou... moreIf your slow down started after a OTA update. It's because of a conflict caused by old data in you cache partition being restored and screwing up how the system is running.
Power off your phone,
Boot into recovery mode
Wipe your cache partition
Reboot the phone.
If you don't know how to get into recovery mode, ask for help.
If you only want to deal with the YouTube problem for now instead.
Go to settings>apps>youtube> uninstall updates. Then go to the play store and install the last update only.
When ever you update an app in the play store, the old app is not removed or uninstalled. New files are just added and same name files are overweighten. Files that are not needed remain just taking up space and in some cases causing problems.
