    It could be an app with a maximum version set too low for it to install on Oreo. If you install it from the Play store, either you won't see it in the phone, or you'll see it and you'll get the correct version. If you don't see it, use a browser to go to Google Play and look for it. Then you'll see it, but it won't be suitable for any of your devices. (Or you'll be allowed to install it, but only to one of your older phones - the S7 choice will be disabled.)
