    My battery life has settled down a bit too, not comparable to Nougat but slightly worse. I've also noticed some apps keep running in the background frequently (or at least now there's a notification that tells it's still running in the background) even after they are closed the traditional way. Those apps also seem to crash more often (I'm looking at BlackBerry for Work and it's suite) . Regardless, the phone does feel fast overall but there are some hiccups from time to time, the frequency is obviously more than what I experienced on Nougat.

    My phone feels faster too. For the most part it runs well. I've had a few weird things happen but overall, not too bad.

    Original story (11/10): Samsung started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus just last week,

    Update (11/15): Samsung had begun rolling out the second Oreo beta firmware to Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus devices in the US, but it has since been pulled. Samsung has issued a beta notice to program subscribers stating that it has “identified an issue of “com.android.phone” crash”.

    There doesn't seem to be a long time between the two, like you seem to imply things happen slowly, I still say we will get andy 8 soon seeing pixel is to get 8.1.

    https://www.androidauthority.com/sam...re-two-813919/

    If I was in the market for a phone, I wouldn't be buying one with andy 7 or 8 if there's a 8.1, unless the phone with andy 8 was outstanding.

    When I got home from work I saw a notification from Members app. Got kind of excited but... It's only an update to the app itself.

    Hadn't seen this before...the ability to change to list view in recent apps. For some reason I really like the look of this better.
    Was this available in nougat or is this a Beta thing? Just curious.

    If being on the most current OS version is first and foremost for someone, the only way to guarantee that is to purchase a Google phone (currently Pixel). Other OEMs may commit to speedy updates in press releases or advertising, but it's not a guarantee they will follow through. Pretty much a crap shoot.
    Of course I would prefer up-to-the-minute updates, but my phone purchases depend on my other feature preferences as well.
    I think every OEM could and should improve on security update releases, if not new OS updates.
    Not holding my breath, though.

    Oreo is suppose to be laying the ground work to isolate the system from carrier specific layer and user apps.

    8.1 is already being worked on Google Pixel to fix the 8.0.0 bugs ;->

    Full support for Google Project Treble depends on a phone being baked originally with the new bootloader and firmware, not just slapping an Oreo on top. The S9 Galaxy should qualify.

    It must be new. I never saw that previously.

    I'm hoping for a new update myself. I've discovered a few other bugs with some of my apps and I'm considering rolling back to Nougat. I've got workarounds but the issues are adding up. Again, I knew what I was asking for so not complaining.

    Either Phone are a or BGR or A mobile had What's New In Oreo. And showed this option.

    I like how BlackBerry would show apps as cards. In some cases of varying size. Side by side and stacked rather than roll a deck or 'fan.'

    I wish you weren't having the issues. At least it's easy to get the beta back though. I had to roll back to 7.0 because of the com. android. phone thing and the beta was waiting for me in software update when I decided to go back to it. Just a PITA doing the resets.

    I wish I wasn't either! Nine is acting up and won't let me save attachments any more. Gmail still isn't notifying me properly and Solid Explorer doesn't see the sd card. Still not a peep from the dev despite three contact attempts. Sd card problems continue.

    I'm using the Samsung email app for now instead of Nine.

    None of these are deal beakers but ARE pains in the rear.

    I'm trying to hold out for the next update hoping at least some of the issues are resolved.

    The sd card and email issues must really affect day to day usability. I can see why you may want to roll back. I'm kind of hoping for a beta update Monday after Thanksgiving is over.

    Looks like Beta 3 is addressing an SD card issue. Hope this helps the problem you're having with yours

    I believe the sd card issue was in the change log. Funny, the first thing I thought of was your problem. 😄

    I haven't had a chance to look at the changelog yet. I do hope the SD card issue is fixed. That is the only bug I can say is on Samsung. The other stuff may just need app updates.

    I'm not seeing anything about sd cards in that link. I'll install it as soon as it's available and see what happens.

    Well I don't know how I missed that! That doesn't directly address the issues I had but still may hold promise.

    I also just recieved an update to Solid Explorer that fixed the app not recognizing the card. So progress is being made.
