    The hard reset got my battery back to normal. It also made the phone run much better overall.
    How's the SOT pre/post hard reset? I know it's only been a few days to judge but my battery consumption has really been bad. I'm charging my S8+ twice now which is not great, especially when I used to have 25-30% remaining at bed time with 5+ hours of SOT.

    I've never gone by SOT because I am definitely not a power user. I could easily go three days on a charge if I had to because of my light usage patterns. On a normal day I probably wouldn't have used 20% of the battery so I just go by what I've seen in the past as far as my battery usage goes.

    Digging through the Members app I was checking out the new features included in the beta. I found new lock screen clocks. But digging through the settings, I can't find the option. Has anyone else found this feature?

    Try the Samsung Themes app. There is AOD content in there.

    No dice. Also, I'm looking for lock screen clocks. Not AODs. Maybe it'll arrive with the next update. Just weird that it's listed but I can't find the setting.

    Picture in picture not working. Tried with YouTube which is said to be updated for pip, but no dice.
    I'm still having problems with Swiftkey and Swiftkey Beta (yes, I know it's a beta) not loading my chosen theme, although the app crashing appears to have stopped for now. I reported both issues to to the Swiftkey forum and I believe they're looking into it.

    With YouTube when you have a video playing, quickly tap the home button twice. With Google maps, you have to be navigating and hit the home button twice for the pip to work.

    The themes aren't working at all. I have to use the original dark theme to keep it running on my phone. Pip has been working for me pretty well.

    It hasn't been included in this version of the beta. Hopefully in the next update we get, but who knows, maybe won't be out until the final/official release.

    Yeah, kinda what I was thinking. I got super stoked when I saw this earlier today, then quickly let down when I couldn't find it. Here's hoping it's in the next update.

    Also, themes work for me, but only so far as changing the color of the notification shade and settings/phone apps. The font for the lock screen clock doesn't change. I'll probably break down and factory reset tomorrow.

    Everyone... Remember to contribute to the Oreo Beta feedback section in Samsung Members app that was added after the beta download. Coming from the Windows Insider program, I think it's important.

    Here I've always gone by the rule that beta meant feature complete, else would be Alpha. They should dispense with the "beta" and stick with Pre-release.

    Some of the reviews and FAQ sound like a very different implementation. Ended up on goose chase looking for things that doesn't exist.

    Has anyone tried Substratum on the beta yet? Was using Swift Black and loving it prior to update. Off work tomorrow and going to give it a go since I'll have time to play with it.

    Yeah, read the FAQs in Members app and parts of it sound like a different OS than my phone is running.

    So I enabled power saving mode yesterday with 10% reduced screen brightness, 70% throttled processor, AOD/background processing always ON with display scaled to full resolution. I still had 48% battery at bedtime with only 2 hours SoT. I'll keep it on for a few days and see if it improves anything.

    My S8 isn't being recognized as an USB 3.0 device any more. It was prior to the update. I'm plugging it in to a USB C 3.0 port on my laptop.

    Edit: Looks like it was a cable problem. I was using a USB-C to USB-C cable but when I swapped it out for a USB-A to C cable with a A to C adapter it was recognized as USB 3.0. Maybe the C to C able wasn't rated for 3.0.

    Broke down and factory reset last night. I didn't have any problems, just figured I give a fresh install a go. A bit smoother. By and large, no noticeable difference. Though, changing themes still doesn't change the font on the lock screen clock.

    I picked "other(experimental)" since the Samsung version no longer works with this Oreo Beta. Had to download the Andromeda app and install the desktop client on my laptop to connect the phone and enable Substratum to work. It worked OK but didn't have as many apps available as the Samsung S8 version had. I used Samsung high contrast black theme for the Samsung apps then applied SwiftBlack to Outlook and my Google apps... Calendar, Play store, Google, Maps, etc, and also SwiftKey. Don't see an overlay for my OneDrive app.
    Still can't get the nav bar or notification shade black. May uninstall Samsung theme and do overlays from Substratum for everything.
    Wasn't sure about which OS version to pick.
    May try the 8.0 for pixel tomorrow but so far the overlays I've applied work fine.
    Let me know what you end up doing and if you were successful. And PLEASE, if you know how, tell me how to get rid of the ugly white nav bar and notification shade (quick settings is fine but not the actual notifications) using Substratum :-)

    Before your reply I'd installed it with Other(experimental) and noticed a lot of stuff wasn't covered either. I ended up uninstalling the overlays. I'll just wait until there's Samsung Oreo support. Besides, with the regular updates we'll probably get with beta, I'll probably get annoyed with having to disable and reapply overlays regularly.

    LOL... Didn't think about the Beta updates but you're so right. Keeping it enabled for now though. Hopefully they'll get a Samsung Oreo version soon. Maybe a month or so.
