I would think though that once Sprint switches to real VoLTE it'll be supported.  Whenever that happens...

I have heard 2 different things; the S7 isn't getting the Oreo update while the other is saying anytime from May-June this year.

Hi All,

After updating to Oreo months ago, battery life has really taken a hit for me (pre-Oreo, I'd be at 45% battery life at 9pm, w/Oreo, I'm at 5% at 9pm).  I actually went ahead and replaced my battery yesterday (at a UBreakIFix store).  Battery life is still horrendous with the replacement battery.  In doing a search, I only found tons of similar complaints and non-solutions (despite Samsung labeling them as "solved"):

I have tried everything (such as force stopping the "Gear VR Services" app, wiping the cache, etc.) short of hard resetting the device or downgrading to Nougat.  

Does anyone have any real solutions that work to address the alleged Oreo battery drain?

Also, has anyone tried downgrading to Nougat to address it?:

Any help would be much appreciated!
