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.

What exactly does your S8 say when you place it on the wireless charger? Does it say “Charging Wirelessly” or “Fast Charging Wirelessly”?

it seems that this update brought back the aggressive RAM management.. I’ve seen the launcher redraw 5 times now since update, messenger is forced to sleep when you exit it and my available RAM is capped at 1GB at least.. before the update it was hitting 700MB – 760MB and I have not installed anything else after the update..

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 notice that launching apps is now super responsive, especially when tapping the weather widget always seemed to have a 0.5s delay prior to this update but now the app opening animation starts immediately after touching an icon. 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.

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.
