Re: [OFFICIAL] Android 8(Oreo) Update CONFIRMED!

2018-11-08, 14:01 PM

RETUS users - Please report any issues you're experiencing after updating to Android 8.1:

 

-random rebooting

-excess battery drain

-Wifi dropping

-Fingerprint sensor issues.

-volume issues during phone calls (serious issue: can't make/receive calls - because you can't hear them speak).

-anything else? 

 

What you've done to resolve those issues, or are you still experience problems?

 

I'm not updating to Android 8.1, until I see stability.  There are far too many reports coming in of problems.  

The problems definitely outweigh any pip, or notification changes Android 8+ bring to the table. 

 

I have an unlocked G5+ (4gb/64gb) (RETUS channel) still running Android 7.0,  Wating until the dust settles. 

 

Google (& all manufacturers) need to provide a mechanism to roll back to previous operating system, because these problems should not be happening in 2018.

UPDATE!!!!!
I just checked my G5 and lo and behold, there it was... The elusive 8.1 (Oreo) update! I could hardly believe what I was seeing! It's installing as I'm typing this.

Hopefully, this means that others here in the US with Amazon (and other) unlocked phones who've been waiting for so long for Oreo, will finally be getting it as well. So, keep the faith and keep on checking your system updates, folks! Best of luck to everyone!

Did you have issues with the fingerprint sensor on Android 7, or has this just started with 8.1 update?

My congratulations to the lenovo team. the update improve the battery life at least a 25 percent.

I do not have restarts or problems with wifi.

 

The only thing is that update is not 64 bit, still using 3,4gb de ram of 4gb
