Install Android Pie If You Have Oreo Problems
If your Galaxy S8 is struggling on Android Oreo, think about installing the Android Pie update. There's a chance it irons out the bugs and/or performances issues you're seeing.
Android Pie isn't perfect, but some of you will likely see a performance boost when you bring your Galaxy S8 to the new operating system.
Major Android releases like Pie have been known to fix common issues like abnormal battery drain, connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS) issues, UI lag, random reboots, and others.
If your Galaxy S8 is tied to a specific carrier you can expect additional bug fixes on board your version of Android Pie.
Carriers typically tack on their own changes to major Android releases and we don't expect any different this time around.
Samsung's Android 9.0 Pie update also comes with a few changes to Device Maintenance which is now called Device Care.
The company says performance modes are now streamlined and integrated into Power saving modes making it easier than ever to get a handle on key areas of your device's performance.
If you hate Oreo's performance, give Android Pie a try.
