Is anybody able to Fast WIRELESS charge after this update? I can’t get my S8 to fast charge wirelessly.

The wireless charging is working as fine as before and it is charging much faster than before. Huge improvement from 1% charge from 3 mins to 1.2 mins. Overall the OS is extremely fast and RAM management is superb now.

Maybe my charger is faulty then. I factory reset my S8 & that didn’t fix the issue I have with fast wireless charging.

So I finally got this update on my S8 and I have to ask if any of you notice your phone being considerably snappier?

I’m also noticing considerably better framerate in the UI and less dropped frames, especially in the music app where previously I’d get 3-4 hangs when scrolling through my albums list but now it’s scrolling super smooth without any… Read more »

BlackBerry, Nokia and Sony are doing a much better service with respect to Google’s security patches than Samsung, LG and Motorola. While the first three months send the patch from the first week (and the first two already complete their service that week), the other three only deliver from the third.
Although the correct would be if Google delivered the same patch to everyone on the same date (even if you have to do five different patches for each version of Android from Lollipop), as Microsoft already does with Windows.

In Brazil, curiously the first device to receive the July patch was the Galaxy J1 Mini.

I have the UK/Ireland XEU variant & it wasn’t available to me OTA today but got it by using Smart Switch on PC. Download was 3.3GB

If I flash stock firmware from the UK and I have firmware from another region, will the warranty/Knox be voided? I’ve got the Galaxy S8+ and I wouldn’t like to lose the warranty so soon.
