Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update: 7 Reasons to Get Excited & 2 Not To



More Customization with Samsung Experience 9.0

More Customization with Samsung Experience 9.0

Samsung's Experience 9.0 user interface comes with a ton of new customization options that should delight those of you that like changing your lock screen or the overall appearance of your device's software from time-to-time. 

Nothing is official, but we expect many of the elements from the Galaxy S8's Experience 9.0 UI to carry over to the Galaxy Note 8. These changes include:

  • Custom colored folders that allow you to take control of how your folders look on the screen and help you stay organized in the process. 
  • The lock screen clock will change color to match the wallpaper you’re using. 
  • New clock styles for the device's Always-On Display. 
  • New Edge lighting effects including a multi-color effect, a glow effect that makes the edges glow, and a glitter effect.

These changes are small, but they're certainly welcomed given how much we all stare at our screens. It's nice to change it up sometimes. 

For more on these changes, take a look at our guide to the Galaxy S8 Oreo update.

    After reading the article, I can’t see a single reason to update to Oreo. My phone works too good to screw it up over a bunch of cosmetics and gimmicks. I don’t think a typical Note 8 user cares what Emojis are included, or what colors you can make the screen. We buy Note phones because they have real functionality you cannot get with any other phone.
