    Agree. Nice camaraderie and sharing experiences/info. And no snarkiness (I know that's not a real word but you get what I mean)
    It's a real word now!

    I do. The Members Beta Forum comes to mind. Can't say I haven't fallen prey. I've reacted to a couple of post.
    That is one funky forum. Had to stop myself several times from reacting to... Well let's just say a general lack of common sense.

    Not awesome in particular but it'll get me through a day easily.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...47c6c2fcfd.jpg
    Jinxed myself 2 days ago posting about 5 hour SOT. Past 2 days back to 4 hours. Thinking about factory reset since Beta is over tomorrow and who knows when the official release will hit my unlocked.

    I would probably hold off and just wipe cache. Reset the phone after 8.0.0 drops. That said. B6 + small 136MB update we just got probably is 98% a release candidate. Though internal builds still go on and more optimizing.

    Software is a guess based on past behavior and what it thinks it's reading from battery charge.

    The watched pot never boils.
    Too many cooks spoil the soup.
    And too many widgets measuring only adds too much.
    Less is more.
    A lean system runs faster and better.
    Would that we could turn off all those gauges telling us what the gauges see.

    You could cook a CPU by never letting it sleep by always a simple ask, Are you asleep?
    Some old code was not hyper-threading friendly when Intel came out (again) with h/t in the i7 920. Racing condition.

    Let sleeping dogs lie.
    How about during safe boot mode?
    That would show ideal maximum base line.
    Is it a price to pay for features you want?

    Oreo rolling out to Beta testers in Germany. Just when I got an S8 Plus without beta.

    What's the verdict after the beta testing? What do you think about Oreo so far? A must have? Worse battery? etc...

    I've loved Oreo during the beta. Not much aesthetically has changed, save for some lock screen clock options and some themes change the nav bar. Battery life has been about the same (for me at least) and the device started feeling a little smoother around beta 5. I'd say a must have.

    Better and more options and control regarding status notifications. The under the hood change improvements and ground work for native Oreo. Security. I only really notice when I go back to 7.1.1 . The last phase Oreo B7 seems fine.

    I’ve had some issues of late never seen before with Note which I can’t pin down. It and S8+ are nearly identical setups, makes testing and comparing easy.

    I took a small battery hit but other than some issues early on, last Beta was very smooth. Now have an S8 Plus without the beta. Honestly what I miss most is the ability to unlock from AOD with OK Google and lock screen clock settings. Really good experience overall with the Beta on my S8. Like Gayle said, it's mostly under the hood stuff.

    I would have to agree. The last beta was very well behaved. I had minor issues with some of the early betas but the last few were really good. Looking forward to the stable release.

    I sold my S8 that had the beta and now have the S8 Plus non-beta.
    I recall the last beta version being smooth as silk.
    Wonder what the issue is for the official roll out?

    Agreed. I'm still running beta 7. No issues. I wonder what the hang-up is.

    CRAP just had to pulled.

    For all guessing aside with even debut of an S9 in two weeks they needed to make changes. I’m watching http://sammobile.com to hear back.

    Google Pay just updated on my phone but does not work because it thinks my phone is rooted. Is the oreo beta the cause of this? My phone is not rooted

    Yes the Oreo Beta is the cause. I don't think Android Pay ever worked on the Beta. Could be wrong since I use Samsung Pay, but I thought I read posts in the Members App during the entire Beta that Android Pay wouldn't work.
    Did it ever work for you on the Beta?

    Like you, I use Samsung Pay lol. I was curious about Google Pay. Samsung Pay works everywhere so no big loss there.

    Yeah, I've got nothing against Android (Google) Pay. It's just that only a small percentage of retailers support NFC payments where I live. I think it's different in Europe, where most retailers have made the transition from MST to NFC.
    Like you, I find SP works just about anywhere so I'm happy.
