    This drives me nuts!!!! I use that feature for a lot of contacts. I'm not happy it's gone!

    Hmm, I have downloaded Oreo to my S8 and I'm not not impressed. I will hang fire on downloading it to my S8+ for a few days until I am more familiar with how the S8 performs with it.

    I got Oreo on my S8+ and I've only noticed improvements. No issues at all, the phone feels snappier, you can now use Google's GIF keyboard and bitmojis in the messaging app, Google assistant works when screen is off, better emojis that actually resemble what other Android and iPhones see, aaand I think there are a few other things that I'm not thinking of.

    Battery is just as awful as it was in Nougat, no change. So I see no reason not to update.

    I didn't say that I didn't like it, it's just that after waiting so long I'm not that impressed.
    I'll give it a week on my S8 and see how I feel about it then.

    they said most of the changes were under the hood...so personally I am not expecting much when my phone finally gets upgraded to oreo.
