When will it end? Kind of sick and tired of Android version updates. Really worth it? Frankly, sometimes I wish Android would just end.
Serraxes, 08 Feb 2018***U1CRAP dont like this number, better wait a little bit xD. It's true though!
S8 Owner, 08 Feb 2018Why do people are so hyped for oreo? they'll be excited for like 10 minutes and then will open... moreIt is a must have if you want to change that horrible lock screen clock arrangement... that is the only reason I am waiting for it.
Ha ha! Version "you want crap". Is Dr Evil naming their releases now? "...I shall call this Preparation H"
Why do people are so hyped for oreo? they'll be excited for like 10 minutes and then will open facebook again and will use exactly 0 new features in the new version...experience 8 is great as it is, 9 is a nice update, not necessarily a must have, the current version of your device can still handle the "tough" and "demanding" work of tweeting, facebooking and taking a picture of your cat, I promise...
Oreo 8.0 is a bit outdated... got it since 4 months ago, now I have Feb security patch installed and i'm waiting for either 8.1 or 9.0 on my XZ Premium
...Oreo 8.0 is a bit outdated.... We, Sony fans/users waiting for either 8.1 or 9.0
AthenaK, 08 Feb 2018I own S8+ and am a *power user*. Yes, it's true, phone occasionally lags when you I switch bet... morei am note 8 user & my note 8 is slower than iphone 6s.. I am not talking about app opening time Â– but these are the cases for me Â–
>search in app drawer Â– slow
>search in setting
>checked update Â– nothing happened Â– then went to another app suddenly Â“your phone is up to date or something like thatÂ”
>after non use of phone around 1/2 hour Â– there is a delay on opening camera.
>phone dial sometime get lot of delays.
Initially I thought it was my problem Â– but when spoke to another guy who got Note 8 Â– he said Â– yeah itÂ’s normal. And you will Â“get used to itÂ” .
So I am trying to get used to these delays Â– but the bitter truth is I am not satisfied with this 1000$ phone.
more: I have uninstalled members, pen up, etc apps to make my phone less laggy (I mean more smooth).
I own S8+ and am a *power user*. Yes, it's true, phone occasionally lags when you I switch between apps while they run some background tasks. On, the contrary, my Sony Xperia XZ Premium *never lags*. I'm always amazed how fluid it is. Samsung has never been that smooth!
About security updates...All Australian S8 phones are still stuck on October 2017 patch level, while other regions have January 2018! Now that's what I call CRAP! I'd rather see current security updates than Oreo on S8 phones.
About user experience... Samsung skinned OS is *fully featured* when compared to my plain vanilla Oreo on Sony.
I agree with other comments. For a phone that'll sold for $AU 1350 I expect to get timely *security* updates. Shame on you Samsung!
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2018Hey Sammy. Don't take the fun away from us by labeling your own phone CRAPI did notice that update suffix.and laughed. is that a coincidence!?
ProJames, 08 Feb 2018Oh you mean on a 7 year old Galaxy Core Lite?
Dude, Lag has been dealt with a long time ago... moreAhem ahem.. m here to shed some light.. m currently using s7 edge from a year nd yes it lags ( lags not hang (duhh)).. sometimes when i tap on an application it will behave like nothing has happened for a while sometimes.. one more occasion when i noticed the lag nd frustrated is pressing the home buttom to leave an application nd it will take some time to go out to home screen.. annoying.. like hell.. it slows down my speed .. previously used xperia z5 ... No lag issue.. i love samsung phones bt pls samsung mame it more fluid like an iphone.. ( used iphone 6s too for few months as my primary phn bt didnt like the ios thtsy s7)
Now would like to switch to galaxy s9.. pls make it fluid samsung
Mr, 08 Feb 2018Why do you need this update? It's so minor. I would worry more about security updates, which a... moreUmmm because he payed a LOT for a HIGH-END phone to get nothing in return, or get it when it's too late lol
I'm not trying to bash here, I'm just pointing out the obvious.
I wanted to buy an S7 edge. Good thing I didn't. otherwise I would be so fracking pized right now..
Good job Samsung :-)
My Moto X4 came out months after yoour S8 and i have an oreo long time before you unveiled it for your flagship.
Shame for Shamesung :-)
harikurisseril, 08 Feb 2018When will s7 edge get the update??Why do you need this update? It's so minor. I would worry more about security updates, which are really important.
Marvin, 08 Feb 2018So the S8 gets the update before the 1k$ Note....Nice to see where Sammy priorities lie. Also ... moreI hoped and it has been said that Note 8 will receive it fist now the S8 does and nobody knows when the 1K$ Note will receive it ! F.... job Sammy !
