The Samsung S8 and S8+ could be termed one of the best phones of 2017 with their top notch features but then, as with most new flagship phones, they also came with their own flaws, recall Apple users experienced a similar fate with the ‘Green line of death‘ on some iPhone X and users not being able to type the letter ‘i’?
The S8 and S8+ are no exception which is why Samsung is releasing yet another Android 8.0 Oreo beta update to address lots of issues present in the previous builds.
We hope this 5th updates would get them closer to the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo and fix those bugs.
There don’t seem to be any features added or removed in the fifth Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, you’ll find below a long list of bugs that should be addressed in this update:
★ Profile sharing won’t enable and keeps saying check network;
★ Home screen does not fit screen properly
★ Phone restarting while using the camera;
★ Smart view doesn’t seem to see LG TV;
★ YouTube app crashes phone causing it to restart;
★ Always on Display side clock and info no longer fits the home screen;
★ After connecting phone to USB and via Bluetooth at car and phone crashes;
★ Message app does not respond properly; it always hangs on exit;
★ Use a black theme, text cannot display complete;
★ Every time you hang up the phone, popup “Call ANR;”
★ Device restarted after calling on recent calls;
★ Galaxy Apps occurs unknown vibrations;
★ Video plays fast after connecting HDMI cable;
★ S finder run when push volume key on app tray;
★ Settings force closes when removing all registered fingerprints;
★ Samsung Account force closes whenever back up secure folder;
★ Bixby briefing doesn’t work.
Even though it’s all about bug fixes, this is a fairly sizable update at nearly 615MB, so make sure you have enough free storage. If you’re already enrolled in the beta program, you should check for the update right now.
