    It seems like samsung only released the November patch to unlocked s8/s8+ devices in the Netherlands. So odd.

    .....Samsung's updating logic, not the Dutch people. Ha ha.

    I just got the November 1 update on my unlocked S8+. Carrier doesn't matter on the unlocked model since the updates come from Samsung.

    Security Updates and "feature updates" need to remain separate. Samsung is basically saying: "we are not going to be releasing any security updates until our next major OS release"... Unacceptable.

    "Buy a Pixel if you're that concerned about security updates" - I'm sure that's what many readers would say but when the biggest manufacturer/seller of Android devices doesn't protect their customers by releasing security patches in a timely manner, how are we confident that every single purchase, post, view isn't being compromised.

    I know I'm over exaggerating a bit, but security updates are not feature updates. They are instrumental. Will I keep using my Samsung GS8+ even though it hasn't been patched in 3 months. Yes.

    But I shouldn't have to. Patch your OS Samsung.
    Very well said. Shouldn't have to "just buy a Pixel" if we want security updates and such. All major companies should be releasing that to protect us.

    Are they monthly? Are they quarterly? plus out if cycle as needed? Does the rollout of Oreo impact security patches and updates?

    Who hasn't at this point not gotten but still waiting for November cumulative update?

    Having been on the Apple treadmill for three decades, the grass ain't greener over yonder.

    I have an unlocked phone in the UK, still on August security patch. So I don't think it's unlocked getting first, seems to be no logic to who is getting it. Really poor management of the update system. Love my phone but consider a Nokia next time if Samsung do not significantly up their game. Security matters and a small company like Nokia is blowing Samsung out the water.

    UK has been getting the latest Nov patch. Odd.

    Why Project Treble matters so much. And Samsung is in the midst of that now.
    Any phone that while with 8.0.0 or later must.

    It'll eventually come. I believe the updates are staggered and could take a while before being pushed to your device. I believe the latest patch is November 1st for AT&T ROM. If you're into ROM flashing using Odin then you can also look at flashing the unlocked G955U1 ROM. It's clean and fast.

    AT&T is probably the worst when it comes to providing the security updates. I have a Verizon S8+. I received the October Security update at the end of October, and I just got the November update installed OTA. Amongst the US carriers, Verizon has proven to be the fastest updater when it comes to flagship phones. T-Mobile second place, Sprint 3rd, and AT&T the bottom.

    New Note 8 from AT&T. Installed Nov 1 update 350MB then few hours later a small patch took all of 4 minutes with Nov 13th date.

    Takes time to test and qualify. Google's Project Treble will eventually separate carrier part from core system and from user applications to make testing and update cycle easier.

    Yeah, something is wrong. Is your phone rooted?
    Is it a carrier version or unlocked?
    Have you tried wiping cache partition?
    Maybe hook up to Smart Switch via your computer to update?
