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.

Full application control with the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 application
The control and registration of application permissions comes to the Samsung Galaxy S8 with the upgrade to Oreo, after its debut in Note 8.
Samsung DeX improves with update
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 .
