    Hey guys I have my Galaxy S8 plus on T-Mobile, and I just noticed I haven't received a security update since July. Why do you think this is? What security update are you guys on and what carrier?

    That's odd, I'd call them, I've been getting them every month, generally at the end of the month I'll get the one released by Google at the start of the month.

    Try connecting to SmartSwitch on PC. You can update using that.

    US unlocked S8 with August security update as of 2 weeks ago. Thought those of us with the 950U1s were the last to get it. Guess not.

    I have the unlocked S8+ and go the August 1 update last Wednesday.

    I also have an unlocked S7 Edge that now has the August 1 update whereas my T-Mobile S7 Edge is still on July. Looks like Samsung has finally got things going with the unlocked models.

    My T-Mobile S8+ is also still on July patch. I've been debating whether to get a Note8 in Tmo or unlocked flavor. I guess it now seems unlocked is the way to go for quicker updates.

    The August security update on my unlocked S8+ has taken a hit on battery life. I could easily go three days standby and still get four hrs screentime. Now the battery barely lasts a day. I'm at 64% after 11 hrs with 53 minutes screentime.

    My S7 Edge is beating it on battery life now.

    I believe this last update killed my phone as well. Phone can't last past noon, without using it. I've made a thread on it...Factory Reset 3 times now because of battery drain and glitching and freezing and random (many/multiple per day) restarts.
    Android System at 60%...
    Am now letting the phone rest overnight at complete ZERO power including holding power button to let screen "blink" to use last bit of juice until completely dead.
    Hope it helps.

    I would always update and install security updates. And they can and are critical. If you can, use a 2nd phone used mainly for testing.

    Ya well, I'm not saying to NOT update. As much as I am concerned about it, I'm not nearly certified enough to suggest it. I'm just heavily dubious about the stability of the so called "update" we got a month ago, because that's when my S8+ went downhill. It's ridiculous, this 1000$ device acting the way it is now, even after THREE FACTORY RESETS.

    it's almost October and my T-Mobile is still on July patch. I have bixby set to check as part of a daily quick-command. but "device is up to date" is all I get. looks like unlocked devices are getting updates faster than carrier ones now.

    This is normal. This is why people get mad at carrier branded phones and a good reason as to why I am dumping my S8+ for the Pixel 2 when it comes out .

    I have the Samsung S7 and can also confirm that the first August Patch causes battery drain. If you have any available update after that, install it, there is a following firmware version - August Patch with BlueBorne fixes & others, that fixes the problem. If you are still in July patch, you are probably lucky not to have the problematic version so be positive Android updates are not that reliable so just stick with what you have and wait.
