Start Prepping, Just in Case
It's a good idea to start prepping as if Samsung and its partners will roll Android Oreo out to the Galaxy Note 5. A little prep work goes a long way toward preventing problems.
Use this time to dig into your Galaxy Note 5's storage and delete files you no longer need. This might include photos, videos, game saves, and music.
Deleting these files will help you make room for Android Oreo (if it comes it'll be a large file) and it could improve your Galaxy Note 5's overall speed.
We recommend backing up your device's data on a regular basis if you aren't doing that already. You can do this via Samsung Smart Switch.
We also recommend tracking down all of your login information before you transition from Android Nougat to Android Oreo. There's a chance it'll log you out of your apps and services.
