If you don’t know where to start, this guide will provide you with some tips and tricks that should help you get ready for your Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo release date.
Start Preparing Right Now
Your Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update could be just a few days away so use this time to prepare yourself and your device for its arrival. This way, you won't be scrambling when the OTA (Over-the-Air) update pops up for your phone.
Use this time to dig into your device's storage and delete files (apps, videos, etc) you no longer need. Cleaning up your Galaxy S8's storage could improve your device's overall performance and it'll clear out space for Android Oreo.
Now would be a good time to start backing up all of your Galaxy S8's data on a regular basis if you aren't doing so already.
You'll also want to track down all of your login information before Android Oreo update lands for your Galaxy S8.
Have your Samsung login and the login info for your important apps and services ready to go because Oreo could, and probably will, log you out of some of them.
It's also important to keep your device charged up throughout the day. This way, you'll be able to install the Android Oreo update soon after it arrives (if that's what you choose to do).
Most Galaxy Android software updates require you to have 20 percent of battery charge to complete the installation process.
We recommend keeping a 50% battery charge for Android Oreo because we expect it to be a significant download. You should also keep a charger handy.
This might seem tedious, but doing some early prep work will save you a lot of time down the road.
We've put together a pre-installation guide that will help you prepare yourself and your device for Android Oreo and it's worth a look if you're new to Android or just want some additional advice.
