For curious people out the i got the oreo update on my s8 a couple of days ago and it is smoother than before with some new features which you can read about everywhere on the web and the battery life is pretty much the same as expected but after i updated my phone i did do a hard reset and cache wipe so if you're having any problems after you update that could solve them since mine has 0 hiccups and everything works great.
Andrés, 01 Mar 2018In what country you receive the update?i for one received it on my german S8 and it feels like just an incremental update with some new features, been using it for a couple of days and the only huge difference between nougat and oreo so far is the smoothness which really did improve with the oreo update.
Hi, anyone has update ur S8 to Android Oreo? How is the performance? Is it good or bad?

I apologise wholeheartedly to Anesu, I mixed you up with someone else.
Hope you forgive :)
Anesu, 28 Feb 2018Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.Hope you are not trolling/looking for attention and genuinly want to know?

Here's the comparisons between the two :)
Anesu, 28 Feb 2018Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.You can't compare a mid range device like the A8 (2018) with a flagship.
Anesu, 28 Feb 2018Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.They aren't similar, if you want true flagship experience with beautiful curved displays, fast processor and many flagship signature features, go for S8.
Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.
a guy named znarfth once said..."Hi to those who are experiencing battery drain issue. You might wanna try this. IF YOUR NOT USING YOUR PHONE TURN IT OFF. Lets say when at work, sleeping or as long its not being use shut down your device and after few days your phones battery will be good as new."
My question is....does it really work ? have anyone tried this so far ? have anyone see any difference ? are you sure about this ? please reply.

Galaxy S8 Android Oreo Update
Updated my S8 to oreo yesterday. Build no. G9xxxxxxcrb7 size 1350MB .
So finally it's a great update with good new features, device is running equally smooth. Tested everything no issue at all. Same battery life.
So if you are looking forward to update your phone,go ahead .its a really nice update and brings the amazing oreo and Samsung experience 9.0 features.
Just don't forget to run the device maintenance after updating and restarting .
The keyboard might not open right after the update .
I had to open safe mode and set up keyboard to make it work for unlocking. It might be due to the keyboard update in oreo. But it works fine after the safe mode set up. So make sure you know how to start safe mode before updating. ( holding power off option on display)
.Andy., 27 Feb 2018don't use any 3rd party antivirus apps. thore are just fake. they can ruin you phone. It is the Samsung antivirus found inside "device maintenance" and called "device security"...
After Oreo updation, lam facing some issues.
1. Draining battery fast.
2. Signal problem. getting LTE signal in 2nd sim but getting 2G/3G signals in first sim is becoming difficult
3. Heating problem
Before the updation it was working fine
Please what are the major differences between nougat and Oreo updates for Samsung galaxy s8?
Samsung s8 just awsome.its really a good phone compare with any flagship devices.

I'm sure you don't have a S8.

We all know no other brand comes close to samsung flagship experience. Maybe you've problem with superior things especially how one brand is superior than all of them. You support pixel, Sony, HTC just trying to defame Samsung by your fake baseless facts. I'll advise you to save some money and try S9 or even S8, you'll know how one smartphone can be light years ahead of all others in competition.
