I'm glad that the Samsung Messages notification stopped in the new update. Facebook's app still freezes while scrolling through  back lot of comments or comments  with media in them so convinced it's a problem with the app as opposed to Samsung. I reported it to Facebook so hopefully someone in the chain will onow how to fix it. For now I'm using the Facebook Lite app and it's working pretty well.

So yeah I'm pretty sure Sprints plan for the S8 is to wait for an official Oreo update, I mean who isn't fine with an August 1st security patch? Lol /rant it's just silly not complaining just a weird way to do things.

Looks like they've pulled the Beta due to a process.android.com fatal error.

I haven't experienced this yet, but it seems like there is an easy fix if you encounter it by going into your settings. The update will probably be re-released later this week.

Wow! This 2nd update has made my phone useless. I have to go back to official software.

Yeah this second update is horrible. If someone calls me my whole phone freezes. Also Youtube will stop working all of a sudden. I may go back to official build but I will give it a few days.

I couldn't take it anymore, I rolled backed and phone is usable, feels faster now too.

ha ha, yeah, I did this last week and I was amazed at how UNstable the beta actually was. :)

In reality the "benefits" of Oreo aren't that apparent especially if you use Nova Launcher. The PiP is cute, but not very necessary and that's about it.

How do you roll back without needing to reinstall everything?

I don't think that's possible. It wipes the phone. However, if you are patient enough, Samsung Cloud/backup/whatever will replace everything, granted it's backing up your apps and app data. I'm usually too impatient and just start fresh.

Still on Beta 2 on my 955U1.  It is so much more stable and smoother than the 1st Beta.  Also, a HUGE improvement in battery life (during both Idle and Use).  No Phone App issues.

You're using the locked Sprint model GS8, right?

 

Unlike for Beta 1, though, I performed a Factory Reset after updating to Beta 2.  Restored my data using Samsung Cloud and Helium.

Has anyone seen any deals coming for the S8 Active on Sprint? I see that new customers can get it at 1/2 off tomorrow, but anything for existing customers?? I think this would be the ideal phone for my parents. No need to use a big ass case and the huge battery would be good for them as well. Hoping to save anything I can on these. Looking to order tomorrow unless there's any internal information on coming Black Friday deals.....

Had lots of issues with beta 2 as well but after wiping system cache, everything started working as intended. No freezes or any other issues.

I'm going for the GS8 today or tomorrow. 

 

Just FYI, Best Buy has a deal with either $350 with installment payments OR a $350 gift card with a lease.  I'm going to do the lease.  Ends Saturday.

    • end of the day on B41 my voice quality sux when near RSRP -110 and when on B25 I am able to have a normal call even at RSRP -115 quality. 
    • I have B5 as 17/27/37/47/57/67 (dec) from @Trip but that's the only confirmed B5 data I have received. The 15.. 16.. 18.. 19.. examples do not conflict with anything else I have noted, so all of those might be accurate. Have you definitively confirmed each of those? I can't wait for the day when every device reports EARFCNs.. @david279 mentioned above that Samsungs are reporting on the Oreo 8.1 preview which is huge.   Keep me updated.. I just have to be careful to assume that something deployed in one market is going to hold true elsewhere (i.e. T-Mobile's mess).   NSG is not a good comparison, because they do not use native Android API methods, they communicate directly with the modem using routines not available to anyone else. It results in great data, but for now it's not the type of information within my reach. But I should be able to do anything CellMapper is showing -- could you give more details? SCP should show the same data.   Sure, so GCI like FAxxxxxx / FBxxxxxx? Can you confirm any other details? PLMN 311480 I assume? Nobody has mentioned them. -Mike
    • Blocks are definitely less, but it has happened to me on one of my devices within the last day.
    • I noticed today my S8+ calls are going through LTE eventhough my VoLTE is disabled.   
    • I'm going on 48 hours without being blocked.. hesitantly optimistic..

      -Mike
