Maria, 21 Mar 2019Could you please tell your experience of Pie on Galaxy A8 2018?One UI / Android Pie is looking quite nice and brings all the features we already know from other devices (like the Galaxy S9 which I owned last december with the latest update). After installing the update (which takes around 15-20 minutes until the process finished) the phone didn't ran as smooth as I expected. But that was only the first minutes after the Update and the configuration of the smartphone (I did a full factory reset after the update -> app download, costomized settings, ...) was finished. Now I am really happy with the update: Nightmode is on board (and it's activated from the first second :) ), the Always on Display got coloured Icons and my personal opinion is that One UI quite looks better. Samsung did a good job with this update. I can't say anything about the battery life at the moment because I only did one full charge directly after the update, but I am quite positive - phone still has 54% of battery capacity right now (09.00 a.m.; 2 hours Display-on-time).
The camera also got an update: Now it's possible to use a zoom-feature with only one click on the new created Icon. It's the same Icon like the Galaxy S9+ but I think it's only a digital zoom feature as the Galaxy A8 doesn't have a special zoom camera or something like that...
