Samsung One Ui is still in Beta for my choice of phones @SimonWilding but the new Ui , dark mode and a faster transitions toggle all interest me.

I could go into developer options and fasten up the transitions there I suppose

 

What's the new Ui like on your phone now ?

Also keeping an eye out on battery output once your phone has settled down. 

How is the font and how icons are shown in the status bar ? Any changes ?

This goes some to give some detail getdroidtips.com/huawei-p20-pro-android-9-0-pie.

I only installed it last night so still playing with it. Of course Huawei put their own EMUI software over the top of Android so it's not pure.

I also use a custom launcher with customised icons.

I've noticed the font has changed and the icico in the pull down menu are now light blue on white.

I've noticed the time management system so it'll be interesting to see how much time I spend on this phone.

I guess I should do a hard reset after the update but I really can't be ##~##.

I love working my way around full new firmwares.

Personally I only Factory Reset if the phone is noticeably glitchy after a few days of letting the phone index and settle.

Yes i noticed you use the Nova launcher.

I have Nova Prime on my Samsung Note 9 but its dormant right now as I'm using the stock launcher Samsung Experience instead.

As for being able to see how long I've been on the phone i think i may not to actually want to know that stat !

I love how the standard p20 has received a pie update before the p20 Pro! Hopefully we will receive it in the next few days

Have you manually checked if there is an update available? Also was your phone provided by vodafone or was it SIM free, as I'm assuming that my update was pushed out by VF.....?

Did you manage to get update?

I didn't receive any security updates since Feb 2018, let alone One UI. Vodafone blames Samsung. And Samsung blames Vodafone. Waste of time both

@liopik Samsung have started to roll out Android Pie worldwide. It's a staggered release and as soon as the UK version is available, once Vodafone has tested it on our devices we'll start rolling this out as soon as we can. Joe

Security updates for me are my primary needs and then software updates follow that as a secondary need.

 

I'm using a Note 9 bought directly from Samsung and I'm on the December 2019 Security update.

 

Can you try downloading the security update separately via Settings > Biometrics and Security > Security Update.

 

In regards to sending out updates its Vodafone that asks Samsung to hold fire to test them for their branded phones before pushing updates out.

This can sometimes delay updates for branded phones but on the flip side I've also known for updates to hit branded phones before unbranded phones !

I tried manually, but it says that there are no updates for my S8. But other people do get security updates. In my case both Vodafone and Samsung don't care. Shame.

Hi,

 

How did you get the phone's software to update? I have an S9+, have tried going through both Samsung Members App and checking for update through settings but so far neither have worked.

 

Kind regards

The Samsung Members App is if a person is applying to join the beta programme which has now finished for s9 and s9+ owners.

 

You need to check in Settings > Software Update > Manual check.

 

It'll show there when it's been pushed out to your phone.

 

Create a back up and ensure your phone is over 50% battery and on wifi to stop a chunk of your mobile data being used.
