Don't Install While Traveling
If you're preparing to travel (for business or for pleasure) or if you're in the midst of traveling, you should think about avoiding the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta.
This is a beta and beta's are always plagued with bugs. There's also a chance the beta bricks your device or wipes data stored on your phone.
We've spoken to beta users over the years who've been left with a busted device/app/service because they updated to a beta.
A functioning phone is important when you're traveling in a place you've never been before or if you're on an important business trip with colleagues.
If your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ is your only phone, it's a good idea to keep it on official software for the duration of your trip.
If you really want to try Android 8.0 Oreo, wait to do the upgrade until you get back to your base of operations. For some of you, that might be the hotel room. For others, that might be your house or apartment.
There's no reason to jeopardize a fun family trip or an important business meeting for pre-release software.
