    I discovered that every other phone out there has Oreo or at least a beta but we don't yet.
    That's a bit of an exaggeration... but I feel your pain! I want it too! We can sideload it if we'd like... I've done that before on my S7 Active with Nougat before it was available and it was such a PITA to go back to stock Marshmallow when the actual Nougat OTA came out... that I'll gladly wait this time!

    I'm not worried about Oreo. My phone is awesome the way it is.

    exactly how I feel as well,BUT I do think Samsung could be better at looking after customers paying top dollar for their top devices at launch.
    Note 8 is the most awesome device in the mobile arena ever, no doubt

    I think Samsung wants to be careful that they don't screw up their flagship device that has been flawless with a premature update.

    Well there's that to it as well and I do agree with that, what I don't understand is why they feel comfortable to release updates in early December to my Vodafone device but my unbranded Samsung one had to wait until mid January for the exact same thing.
    I'll rather a non buggy update than a quick pain in the aars.. one...

    To be honest, I don't think there is a premium on Android updates like it used to me. I remember in the early days of Android, an update meant a lot more features and performance enhancements. That's not the case any longer. Now, Android software is playing catch-up to what Samsung is already offering with their skin. So, Samsung consumers aren't really waiting for features like we used to. And I believe Samsung knows this. Coupled with a very stable software experience on their best smartphone, Samsung may not feel rushing an update is in their best interest. The last thing Samsung needs is to break a product that has been successful in making up for last year's broken product.
