Re: Phone super slow after Oreo update

Hi @Luckyduck

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

Sorry to hear about this Slightly frowning Face

 

Do you have an SD card in your phone? If so, can you remove that and see if you experience the same problem?

Hi @Luckyduck

 

No problem at all!

 

Can you try booting the phone in to safe mode and see if it still running slowly?

I had the same issue. I disabled the avg anti virus that was running in background and erased content to make more memory. Kept memory under 70%.... Now it's very fast.

Re: Phone super slow after Oreo update

Earlier version worked like charm no problems at all. Now my phone is extremely slow and laggy.

 

I don't care about 8.0 at all since the phone has now serious problems. Even Alarm wont ring when it should..

 

Seriously because of so many problems Fix these and upgrade the phone also to 8.1 in the future. Hurndreds of euros spent I seriously want more software quality.

 

Im sad that I upgraded to 8 version..

Same here! Device is slow, battery drain is massive, alarm works randomly, got black screen once and lost ringtone once. Forced apps to shut down that drain the battery but now android system uses the most of it! Oreo ruined my Xperia X Perfomances performance...

Adding my voice to the crowd - same issue. 

 

Super slow since Oreo, incredibly frustrating, some apps are now unusable as they are so slow.

 

Very disappointed
