Just a quick check from the people in the know. Samsung says Note8 gets Pie this month, checking Sammobile I see NZ / Australia does not have it yet but the majority of the world does.  How far off is it if you can say.

Awesome, thanks for that, I didn't even think of using Smart Switch. Mine is updating now.

 

My partner has an S9, and I've played around with it a bit, and it seems like an interesting update alright.

Hi All, Voda update yesterday seems to have worked fine. I preferred the clock on the right of my status bar so have moved it back there using Samsung Apps Good Lock and QuickStar. There's a good guide here https://android.gadgethacks.com/how-to/move-clock-back-right-side-your-galaxy-android-pie-0194063/

 

 

 

cheers

Is that pie or march security update. I moved my clock over right using good lock very soon after update as sick of thinking clock was notifications all the time.

 

Does anybody know settings or app to change phone app when you a get a call and just press call icon to answer(like in oreo before) as swiping is just useless and always cutting call off or always pressing icon as forget to swipe and call finish's before can answer.

 

thanks john

Who has the best add-on deal for the S10 right now? From what I see, probably Noelleeming with the Google Home. The Samsung store has the $200 certificate, but I'm not sure what I would spend it on? PB Tech has some crappy headphones, 2 degrees a crappy speaker. Anyone else I should consider?

 

 

 

Edit: I just realized I posted this in the wrong discussion. Sorry about that. I'll report it to have it moved/removed.

The Samsung studios have $200 in store voucher as well as 1x free screen replacement in the first year.

From a value perspective that's the best deal I've seen.

Found solution for this answering calls on pie in case anyone wants to do.
