4 Reasons Not to Install Galaxy S9 Pie & 11 Reasons You Should



Don't Install If You're Unprepared

Don't Install If You're Unprepared

Those are a few reasons to think about installing Android Pie right away on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+. Here are a few reasons to consider holding out.

It's extremely difficult to predict exactly how the Android Pie update will impact your Galaxy S9's performance. Some of you will see a boost but many others will run into problems.

The Galaxy S9 Android Pie update went through extensive testing, but problems have unsurprisingly slipped through the cracks into the final build.

This is precisely why you'll want to prepare your device before you upgrade to Android Pie. Some prep work could go a long way toward preventing headaches. 

We've put together a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process we use before we install new Android software on our devices.

If you use your Galaxy S9 for work, we highly recommend checking in with your IT department (if you have one) before you install the update because it could have an impact on the apps and services you rely on to do your job. 

If you don't have a lot of time to commit to the pre-installation process you should, at the very least, make sure all of the important data is backed up.

You can use Smart Switch, Samsung Cloud, or another service to do this.

    “Like Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness uses AI to learn your habits. And like its name suggests, it’s focused on the brightness of your display.” And this comes with a horendous bug/issue! Instead of going straight to the required brightnes, according to the surrounding, the screen goes completly dim. Terrible! You have to manually compensate for this idiotic AI feature! This is a known issue and you are presenting it as an “advantage” and an achievement?…

    UI – completly broken. A lot of themes no longer work, especially dark ones and overall thte default icons are terrible. There are also some removed features – the enahce audio during call has been removed for instance.

    And the most nagging issue – one in three times I am requested to unlock my phone by using the pattern instead of the fingerprint unlock.

    Shame on SAMSUNG for such catastrophic testing and shame on the development team who released this junk and ruined my experience by turning an almost perfect phone into an aggravating piece of junk!

    This update isn’t the android UI that I know and love.
