Steven2753, 18 May 2018Is the battery life in oreo better than nougat?Usually newer firmware updates should improve the overall resource management, but since this is Samsung we are talking about it might be worse.

So its All Samsung fault....

Also, my friend borrowed my phone and browsed Facebook in the swimming pool.
Take note: always wash your phone with tap water when dipping it to non-tap water (e.g. swimming pool, softdrinks). Chemicals from non-tap water may damage the rubber gaskets inside the device.

The moment we purchased Samsung device, we agree on how they do the business. But hey. Look at the brighter side like what happened to S7. Only few are affected by the bootloops.
If not only for the Samsung Experience, I should have bought phone from another manufacturer. If you want the update right now, the best yet the riskiest thing to do is to flash a foreign firmware which I'm already planning to do.
Best smartphone ever. I have used many Samsung and other smartphone. But this deserves the first place among them. I have been using this smartphone since a year. No any problem. It's very fluent to operate. It's very smooth in performance & there's almost no lag at all... The camera quality is very good and even the internet speed is also very good.... The water resistant feature is so cool....

Anyways, jus... moreSo why samsung always and always late updates in our countries is other countries are Unique countries they bought devices in double the prices Samsung has double standard always from past 4 years as Samsung users i m noticing same and Shame things from samsung, We purchased devices not gifted by Samsung we should be treated equally, always and always same pattern of rollout thats shame...
Gerald, 15 May 2018UK Vodafone Hasn't recieved android 8.0 either wtfStrange, and all other Vodafones including their partners (A1- Vip) got oreo.

Anyways, just be happy that you'll get Oreo soon. There are Regional Samsung Divisions who don't even care to give 2nd update to their firmware *cough cough PH firmware cough cough*. Seriously, Samsung PH haven't given 2nd major updates to S5, S6, S7, A series (2015 to 2016). Thus, I'm not expecting for Oreo anymore unless I'll flash a foreign firmware.

Does anyone know how to activate bixby after updating to oreo ?since it says bixby automation in the update and i couldnt find any bixby related stuff in the setting
Front cam fixed? , 16 May 2018Hello, is the front camera blurry issue fixed with new updates? Android 7 or 8? Thank you! No. Still blured on 7 and Oreo. It cant be fixed. Its the hardware problem. Bad design.

Anonymous, 16 May 2018I'm from Romania too... got Oreo...no heating problems. Setup your phone in every single detail. Can you give me some advices how to set my device?To stop heating(te rog).
Just got this while my S7 is in the workshop for screenrepair.
WOW, I wasnt expecting to feel so much slugginess compared to the S7. he phones are almost similar size and look similar too, but in daily operation, the S7 flies much better.
There is just an element of hesitation, sluggishness that is evident in this phone cmopared to the S7. Accepteable if you came from a worse phone, or you maxed out your budget with this phone. But coming from the S7, I can only live with it for so long. Apart from that, the phone is ok. It just shows that an older top range model still has it over a medium range model released 1 year later.
The S7 is still a great phone with really good camera, especially if you dont like curved screens found on S8/S9 like myself. Would buy it over any midranger out there.
