Don't know if I should install it though.

Installed it knowing the risk of losing bixby remapping, and sure enough it does prevent the ability to remap bixby. Oh well, fun while it lasted. I'd still update though, you aren't going to go the whole life of your phone without updating unless you want dropped support and vulnerability security-wise.

That's why u haven't updated was because Bixby. I still have the okay Google option so I'll update soon.

Please check if it put you on 7.1 though.

It's not 7.1, there wasn't any indication anything was getting updated to 7.1 outside of Pixel users, so I wouldn't expect that until we get an official announcement (unless you're in the Galaxy Beta program). And the patch level is April 1

Anyone notice the face unlock acting buggy and slower/won't recognize after this update? Super blown about this since the fingerprint scanner placement sucks horribly in the first place

So for now, should we be holding off on this update since it updates the baseband?

Also since I dont have my disabler yet for software updates... How would one manually remove the download? Also anyone know if the S8 plans to auto update if you hit "Later"?

Just turned my phone off for the night.

I just updated my S8 and noticed exactly the same problem you described. It did not recognize my face to unlock the phone as well as it did before the update! I kept retrying and then moved into a brighter light and finally it recognized my face and unlocked the phone. Phoohey! The stupid update description said it improves the face recognition... but it made it worse! What a bunch of idiot developers that messed with this.

i don't have face recognition on so i can't test it but can you remove your face and do the setup all over again to see if it recognizes better?

    Dammit, you said their name three times, now their watching you! Man for an IT guy you sure don't know the do's and don'ts of calling out the G-name. Now you will have unexpected pop ups from them, annoying things coming up asking about how you liked eating at Joes Crab Shack, or your experience at the local Wal-Mart. The only remedy now is to throw your phone away and get a new one. And once you do don't forget to not call out the G-name three times! (IT guys. . .they are book smart but not street smart!) :eek::victory::rolleyes:

    LOL! That's why I run my own servers to store things. You all should run your own Cloud for your real personal data and stuff. But this is the way of the new future world we are in now.
