Hello @AntS

 

I'm not sure if this has ever been the case. 

 

Personally I'm not always after the newest firmware i.e. Nougat to Oreo as my phone is very stable. 

 

I apprecaite Samsung will want as many devices as possible on the newest firmwares but for me Security Patches hold more importance. 

 

So my feedback is would it ever be viable to be able to update my Security Patches on my phone separately away from firmware updates. 

 

Thats the more control over my phone that I would want.

Hi @BandOfBrothers.

 

You should be able to check for and install any security updates separately to firmware updates on your S8.

 

Settings > Lock Screen and security > Other Security Settings > Security Policy Updates. It'll bring up this screen:

Unless you're meaning something different to these? :unsure:

Update. 

 

My phone was sent the Oreo Firmware update. 

 

So I navigated to the settings section you mentioned @AntS

 

All up to date. 

 

Waited then tried again the next day with the same result. 

 

Updated to Oreo and my Security Patch has now updated to Feb 18.

Hi. I bought my S9+ 2 weeks ago and I'm having issues my calls going silent 10-15 seconds. This happens if I receive a call or make a call. I've read some of the comments by other with the same problem but I noticed there's no solution. What shall I do? I'm still within my 28 days.

Hey @M33hul,

 

There's an active thread referring to this on our Galaxy S9 | S9+ board. We'd recommend having a read here for further info.

Just to report that the last few days the captcha has been back (not sure if anyone else has mentioned it) , we did have it a while ago but then seemed to disappear again. Know some sites do use it though. Today I was also informed I needed security code when logging in here but no space to input, anyway after a few attempts I got in fine.

@JAMES4578: Can't say I'm the biggest fan of the "click the pics until there are none left" type captcha. I've not encountered the security code bit myself yet.
