Android Oreo: Is it worth the upgrade?

on Android App Developers Forum at Fri Sep 08, 2017 1:42 pm

Everybody seemed very excited at the launch of Android Oreo. Although immediately after upgradation, lot of complaints started pouring in regarding the difficulty to connect the device to Bluetooth and further getting switched off after a while. Does it seem like a good option to update then?

I myself will wait a few months before an update.
The same thing went with Windows 10: right after being released it was really bugged and not supported enough to work smoothly.
So I will update my Android device, as it will be definitely confirmed that it will work well as it was promised.

If you are in the position to install Android 8.0, then I would recommend it. This is an update which finally brings an iOS-matching level of polish to Android, makes your operating system faster, smoother, more instinctive and improves battery life.

@Ready4S
We agree with you on this! Windows 10 had lots of bugs at the time of its release. It took almost a year before the OS could finally support all devices.
There are chances that Android 8 Oreo has similar issues. So, as a precaution, it’s wise to install the OS after waiting for a while.

@AmandeepKaur
Your point is valid. Android Oreo will be a lot smoother, faster, and will have more battery life. However, like Ready4S said, there are chances that the OS has some bugs. Hence, we will prefer to install the update after waiting for a while.

@Applify

Thanks for agreeing with me ;) Yes, I know that Android Oreo features sounds great - but I just don't believe that they will all work perfectly from the beginning. There are too many different Android devices.

Have anyone here already upgrades your smartphone and could share his/her thoughts?
