    I stopped caring cause whenever I get the latest Android version I see no difference cause all the new features have already been on Samsung's devices for years already. Samsung's UI is always ahead of any Android version.

    I guess this is why I'm never in a rush to get the latest dessert. Actually, I don't even DL right away when they become available.

    This will probably be the most difficult issue to adjust to since coming over from iOS. All of the more recent devices get the same update, with the same security patches, bug fixes, etc.

    I'm not looking to start a huge debate, just saying that as good as Samsung already is, I think they need to take a page from Apple's book and try to implement the same practice to many of the most recent devices.

    Agreed. I mentioned this in an S8/Note8 comparison thread. The Samsung experience number will probably be considered the version going forward IMO. The Nougat update to the S7 was huge because it made the phone look and act more like the Note7, minus a few options of course.
    I'm sure SE 8.5 will have settings that weren't really mentioned in reviews that will be better than the SE 8.1 on the S8.
    Can be anyone name one feature they are looking forward to with the Oreo update?

    I'm hoping that the beta program will be back towards the end of the year. So, I'm saying December beta and February official upgrade.

    Yes...which also is the reason I’m not concerned about the battery size too...

    Background limits:
    Android Oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use least, it's the super power you can't even see.

    They have? You can snooze notifications on Samsung UI? You can change priorities and things like that on them as well?

    I don't think so :P.

    No, the whole argument is silly. Android does some things first, Samsung does other things first. Difference is, Samsung sucks at software AND generally makes things that only work with their own services. So like they came out with multi window first, but it didn't work with most apps. Android releases with these features are generally more thought out and work with almost everything, sometimes requiring the devs to enable things on their end though. But while they each are doing things first and second, they also have very different priorities.

    that's the one thing I really dislike about Samsung's features. Android has been doing a great job imo.

    Doesn't Samsung already do this? I could be wrong. But, I think this exists already.

    On the Note7 and S8 under the device maintenance, it shows apps that it has put to sleep if not actively used in a while. You can also manually set apps to go to sleep.

    6 months from release. Better question would be do you even care when you get it, because I do not

    Just a fair warning, I'm buying the Note 8 so it will get Android Oreo around the time we're speculating on what Android R will be called.
