My s8, Note8, and s9 runs perfectly with Samsung Experience 9.0. No bugs or anything. Samsung software is quick and great, no need for a vanilla rom
Yep now Samsung will take 11 months to make their skin instead of 12 months .. great news for Sam lovers

Unfortunately not many old phones are easy to update by third party developers nowadays.
I tried to search for my old exynos note 4 and it has only a very experimental nougat rom, with very nasty bugs like: SIM card not working !(yikes ).
Maybe project trebble will make things better for devs in the feature. I can appreciate that.

CrazyGump, 17 Mar 2018Maybe in a near future, Google will make it possible to choose "Install OEM Android" or "AOSP"... moreThat's actually plausible. but that'll mean a reboot every time you switch the skin. XD
What a downgrade in versatility. I sure won't want to downgrade the usefulness of my Note 8 to such pitifully limited stock android experience. I'd get a OnePlus 5T if I wanted such.
r33fd, 17 Mar 2018I don't get why anyone would like to replace the official firmware with an AOSP rom and LOSE m... morebecause we developers love to do it. we love to modify anything that we can modify.
it's fun to do it.
just like people who love cooking, they tried many times to cook and sometimes they failed, but they keep doing it because it is fun.
If the updates of the OS side of treble have to come from the manufacturers servers, when they deem convenient, and not directly from google (like an google app update) .... buuuu (add a couple thousan bubuzelas) :'(
r33fd, 17 Mar 2018I don't get why anyone would like to replace the official firmware with an AOSP rom and LOSE m... moreOne of the benefits, granted you keep your phone longer than 3 years, is to be able to very easily install a custom ROM with better performance, since you have official drivers. And even if you just want, say, Samsung's Android R but you are stuck on Q, there are a lot of competent persons at XDA that do these ports. So you'll just flash and it's going to be like you had the actual update.
Wont make a difference. Just got my S8 plus update (UK, SIM FREE) like 2 days ago.... embarrassing.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018Not all of them. Some OEMs remove it so that in a few years time you buy a new phone.Not accurate. All phones that launch with Oreo have project treble support. If a phone is updated to Oreo from an earlier version, the oem doesn't have to include support for project treble
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018Not all of them. Some OEMs remove it so that in a few years time you buy a new phone.Slowly people will learn and they won't buy phone that doesn't support treble.
Maybe in a near future, Google will make it possible to choose "Install OEM Android" or "AOSP" at start up and you might be able to change this from the update menu.
Yes, I'm dreaming a bit too much
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018We already have phones running Oreo. Don't they have treble?Not all of them. Some OEMs remove it so that in a few years time you buy a new phone.
When comming to updates project treble is priority number 1.
Problem is in case of companies like Samsung they dobnt care about updates as long as their expensive devices are selling.
LG superfan, 17 Mar 2018With Project Treble oems can push updates faster but the real question will they? Tbh I dont s... moreLol. Treble literally splits vendor/OEM stuff & all do it's meant to easy things on OEM's and save user's from bad OEM's it also easy things on costume open source community as it's easier to port things now when kernel infrastructure required is generic & it's easier to find properly vendor blobs. Needles to say Google didn't actually had in mind either helping AOSP nor aftermarket community.
