January patch reviews

Hi, 

So it's that time again where hopefully everyone can report issues and such with this latest update. 

I will post  my review  after 24 hours. 

Cheers

 

------>update :

1)Ram management is a little better than before but still not that good. I guess 3 gigabytes is  insufficient for oreo so sadly, I give up on this matter.

2) battery is still abysmal(can't even have 4 hours SOT)

3) camera still slow and the pictures takes ages to load and even more after that to be able  to edit them.

4)4k mode still separate app.

5)no color gamut option in the display settings

6) not sure about spectre and meltdown whether they have been fixed or not. I read something about all patches released after january 5th do include the fix but not sure

7)adaptive brightness not aggressive anymore

Re: January patch reviews

My main concern is if this update actually fixes Spectre and Meltdown... Any info on that?

Re: January patch reviews

Anyone on Android Oreo should update it without any thoughts..

 

The update has hardly changed anything but it has tuned the phone well and it's better than the first Oreo update...

 

My ldac and auto brightness problem are gone and seems like they fixed the alarm clock as well.. 

 

Battery life helps more or less the same

Re: January patch reviews

Finally the phone is fast again after a couple of month of pure bs... 

 

Anyway, I'm happy we can have a good Oreo experience now... 

 

Almost no last, good performance, faster camera (still not as fast as when the XZ launched), and battery seems ok... Barely a day... 

 

I might factory reset my phone later and see if the battery improves (too many junk apps)
