:joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::rofl::rofl::rofl: Ok

Phones used to be simple, put your finger in a hole, turn the dial to make a call, then lock it with a padlock for unauthorized use. The high end ones had a tape cassette for voicemail.

:joy::joy::joy: My dad used to carry the handle in his briefcase to work in-order to ensure we don’t access it while he’s away… sisi ni nani… we used to place shoe brush on that button where the handle lies to allow incoming calls… don’t ask what used happen incase there’s an incoming call while he’s away :grin:
Handle

New iOS 12 has android like grouped notifications, Samsung like memoji, and android do not disturb … :grin:… I thought apple never copies :grin:. Anyway, sorry, not looking to start an argument but mobile OSs are approaching a point of similarity, with Android 9 also embracing gestures.

:joy: :joy: :joy: :joy: And which android phone has a 5yrs long support and updates name even the mighty of the mightiest from Google themselves

No single OS is perfect and everyone here knows it.

iOS users have been living with a crappy notification system for years. This is a core feature.

If you are a dev, you must also be aware how closed the platform is. (Although it is pretty awesome when it comes to debugging things)

Yes, Android is extremely fragmented. There were over 24,000 Android phones from 1,300 brands in 2015 compared to 13-18 iPhones. This is to be expected when anyone with some money to spare can be an Android manufacturer.

It would take Apple almost 8,000 years to release 24,000 iPhones at their current rate (3 phones per year).

For most of these Android manufacturers, as soon as the check clears, you are on your own.

Google’s first-party devices have not been around for more than 2 years so it is a bit early too judge. The OG Pixel phones are still officially supported until Oct 2019. We will know then.

Even Joe Rogan…

:joy::joy::joy: as much as Joe Rogan seems uninformed in this video about android, he has some bitter truths… :sweat_smile: The iMessage thing, updates in android… hahah…
But in africa I dont think iMessage affects anyone cuz almost everyone is on whatsapp. I miss listening to Joe Rogan’s podcasts, nitaanza tena, the guy is real in a funny way :joy::joy:

Has Samsung released the Oreo update for the s8 in Africa/Kenya?


#74

I have Oreo in my A7 2017, so most likely S8 also has it.


#75

I’m still on Nougat.


#76

Aiii my friend, ebu check, the Oreo update was dropped at least 2 months ago.


#77

It says i’m on the latest firmware(edit: Nougat in my case).


#78

I think i know what the issue is. The phone is from UAE.


#79

Weeh. I got the update even before the S9 was released locally. Your UAE model could be the issue. Go to https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/galaxy-s8/SM-G950F/AFR/download/G950FXXU2CRF7/223945 and install that update. There are instructions on how to do it on that page as well.


#80

Yes, i’ll have to manually install it…edit: I think i’ll go with the Indian version that supports VoLTE.
Edit 2: VoLTE didn’t work so i’m back to the Kenyan firmware(Oreo). I think you have to change the CSC.


#81

VoLTE can’t work unless there is a patch provided by Samsung EA for JTL support.
