Samsung stops Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the international Galaxy S7

Samsung stops Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the international Galaxy S7
Everyone was happy that Samsung has finally kicked off the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Unfortunately, it appears that it didn't last too long. So, if you did not receive the update yet, chances are you won't get it anytime soon.

Apparently, the South Korean company has decided to put the Android Oreo rollout on hold until it fixes some of the issues that many Galaxy S7 owners reported soon after the update went live. An official statement has already been issued by Samsung, which confirms the deployment of the update has been put on hold.

However, it appears that the reboot issues only affect the international Galaxy S7 variants, so if you're located in the United States, theoretically, you should still be eligible for the Oreo update.

In case you already updated to Android 8.0 Oreo and your Galaxy S7 is affected by the reboot issues mentioned by Samsung, then you should visit a local Support Centre or simply do a factory data reset using the Recovery Mode.

Better to stop and fix issues then to keep rolling it out.

Don't you think that this is happening way too often with Sammy?

Nope I sure don't. Look how many updates to fix issues that apple does. Why not stop the update rather then do a bunch of updates.

ONE (1) year to perfect an update and after release damages Our poor peoples phones. DISGUSTING SAMSUNG, we need to stop buying Samsung products no matter how good they claim to be this is coming from an individual who is an android Samsung fan from day one I'm starting to get sick of these Samsung fools. I'm honestly contemplating on switching to Google Pixel phones. Two major updates for phones we pay almost 1000 for and they claim they are better than apple.

Samsung sucks,ass usual, i had the S7 edge and then S8. Gave the S8 to my wife switched to iphone X and never looked back. I felt so cheated by Samsung. I mean it’s not about the features you get IMO and don’t wanna be stuck on Nougat when a lot of phones are getting updated to oreo(Nokia). I wanted to buy a Pixel but then i tried the iphone and was blown away. So i’m out of the android game, for a loong time

Well, if you honestly gave Android a shot and you didn't like it, then I'm glad you found the iPhone if that works better for you. I am the exact opposite situation, and we are both examples of why choice is a good thing. The only thing I take issue with is you statement of "Samsung sucks, (as) usual" since that statement is simply not true in any objective way. Is Samsung perfect? Heck no! However, they are among the best at what they do, and while not everyone will be a fan, saying that they "suck" is simply not true. I don't personally like Apple for a multitude of reasons, but I can in no way say that "Apple sucks" since that statement would be objectively false. I hope we can all have a more civil tech discussion going forward. Cheers.
