    Hi it's been a month since I had my Galaxy S8 and back when I had my Galaxy S7 I would get security updates every month. So I was wondering if anyone has received any security updates for the last two couple of months?

    Security updates every month on Samsung phone? What carrier are you on? What you are mentioning is more of a dream Land.

    No. It's actually reality.

    The unlocked phone should be updated direct from Samsung no matter what carrier but I'm looking at 7.0 with an April security update as if today.

    Some critical vulnerabilities let an attacker take over your phone just because of a website you visit or a media file you play. In fact, Google's May 1 update--which we don't yet have as of June 6--patches several such vulnerabilities:

    T-Mobile's AQEF version released today includes May 1st security update and Stability and Bixby updates.

    June Security Update was released just this Monday for Pixel and Nexus, so technically, our phones are "up to date". No excuses for not having 7.1.1 already though, I know that it may not be night and day in features compared to 7.0, but more than 7 months after it was released, there's really no excuse as of to why Samsung (and a lot of other OEMs BTW, but Samsung is the bigger one here) hasn't released it to their Flagship phones.

    I will be very curious to see how long it takes the Unlocked versions to receive this update. So far nada

    While maybe they're not monthly, Verizon is one of the better carriers (dare I say best carrier) for Android security patches for the first year of a "flagship" device's life.

    Would have to disagree and say Sprint

    Has not been my experience at all.

    To be fair, my first android phone on Verizon (or any carrier for that matter) was the Note 7 so who knows if i should have expected any updates with that. So far with the S8+ my last security patch was April 1st 2017

    Huh? Security updates don't just patch things that can only be done via a public network o_O.

    Yup, newest update on the S8 (June 7/8) updates something on Bixby (don't know what, still looks the same to me and still no voice) and updates the security patch to May, so we're still a month behind, but at least it's being updated.
