Analysis of Android 8.0 Oreo for Samsung Galaxy S8


Android 8.0 Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a reality in its Beta version. I have been using this update for a few weeks on tests and my conclusions are quite positive in this regard.

Thanks to Android 8.0 for users Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + of these devices, we can finally take advantage of most of the new features. In addition, it also enters applications created for the latest versions. Remember that news of Android 8.0 Oreo should be added to news from Android 7.1 Nougat because these phones were still in Android 7.0 Nougat.

A review of the new Android 8.0 Oreo

We talked a lot about Android 8.0 Oreo, although not the last update (this is what Android 8.1 Oreo reserves), but what's new? Let's do a little review next to the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Inherited improvements of Android 7.1 Nougat


Android 7.1 Nougat shortcuts improve and show notifications for each application. To access these, you must hold down the application icon. They will appear, if the developer has implemented, quick access to portions of the application and unread notifications. You can remove icon notifications or the number does not appear in Settings> Notifications> Application icon alerts.

<p> <strong> New emojis </strong> for the already extensive collection. Even more new emoticons if we have Android 7.1 that were not yet on the Galaxy S8. Yes, the most commonly used applications, such as Telegram and WhatsApp, have already introduced these emojis, so the only notable change is outside of these. </p>
<h3> The best of Android 8.0 Oreo </h3>
<p> Notifications, in applications that have been adapted, are grouped and can be configured separately. These are called <strong> notification channels </strong> and allow you to separate the notifications of an application into groups. Each of these groups can be managed by showing, doing this silently or even with a pop-up window. You can set <strong> categories </strong> for an app like Google in <em> Settings> Notifications> Google. </em> </p>

 News on the keyboard Samsung "width =" 900 "height =" 617 "/> </p>
<p> The <strong> Samsung keyboard </strong> now incorporates fast actions in space that word suggestions can take. Among these actions is the power to find stickers and animated GIF, in addition to dictation by voice and emojis. New high contrast themes with pure black, yellow and blue have also been added. If you call <strong> high contrast mode </strong> you can not use the keyboard in small mode. If you have multiple keyboards installed, a button will appear on the navigation bar to switch between them, nothing new, but you can now disable it by clicking on it. Open the keyboard and click on the gear to set it. </p>

<p> <strong> Samsung DeX </strong> The ability to convert your phone into a computer is also updated. Now the application menu will be displayed by filling the full screen and gaining compatibility with the Game Launcher. Thanks to <strong> Game Launcher in DeX </strong> you can play both keyboard and mouse and fullscreen games. With the update, you can also use the phone connected to the DeX as a touchpad. </p>
<h3> Edge and multiventana panel enhancements </h3>

Upgrading to Oreo only made me more comfortable using my Galaxy S8.

You can finally take advantage of the functionality of application pairs as in Galaxy Note8. I created one with Telegram and Whatsapp for the most social moments with conversations on both sides. The permission monitor gives me more security that I do not lose when using Autofill with Samsung Pass to log on to websites and applications.

In performance, nothing has changed and if I did, I would say that for the better. I have the feeling, although I have no measures before the update, that now the recognition of the iris is faster . I did not notice slowdowns in apps or anything like that, even though it's a trial version.

The battery is difficult to evaluate with a test version. What I noticed is that it performs the same or worse, although I have not done the typical format after the upgrade or is a final version. I'd rather wait for the final version to give a more reliable assessment.

In general, if the Samsung Galaxy S8 was already quite a complete device with regard to software, now is more. I would always prefer something to be done slowly, but with good lyrics .
