The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are one step closer to getting the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo, as Samsung has just released another beta build that addresses lots of issues present in the previous builds.

There don't seem to be any features added or removed in the fifth Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, you'll find below a long list of bugs that should be addressed in this update:

  • Profile sharing won't enable and keeps saying check network;
  • Home screen does not fit screen properly;
  • Phone restarting while using the camera;
  • Smart view doesn't seem to see LG TV;
  • YouTube app crashes phone causing it to restart;
  • Always on Display side clock and info no longer fits the home screen;
  • After connecting phone to USB and via Bluetooth at car and phone crashes;
  • Message app does not respond properly; it always hangs on exit;
  • Use a black theme, text cannot display complete;
  • Every time you hang up the phone, popup “Call ANR;”
  • Device restarted after calling on recent calls;
  • Galaxy Apps occurs unknown vibrations;

  • S finder run when push volume key on app tray;
  • Settings force closes when removing all registered fingerprints;
