The 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display is an incredible panel, and the 18.5:9 aspect ratio makes it a bit more easily manageable. The dual 12MP cameras are some of the best...

What do you think about Samsung stopping the Galaxy S8's Oreo update?

One year ago   |   By Android Central

Fix those bugs!
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Samsung gave us a rather unpleasant treat by stopping its rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy S8. Some users in countries like Germany, France, Poland, and others were able to successfully download and use the new software, but for everyone else, they're at the mercy of Samsung until it decides to push out a new build.
