It seems to be mostly the letters that are gone.

I might have some I can sell. Let’s see - I have an M, an L, a J and there’s a W

Has anyone updated to the latest Android software on a Samsung Galaxy? I’ve an s8 and since I’ve done the update, my battery has gone to shit and I’m convinced the phone is running slower than it was before the update. Anyone else get these problems after they did the update?

#644

No issues with the S7 . Rule of thumb is not to do any updates straight away . Leave it for a while & read up to see how other people got on . Used to always be an issue with iOS updates on the iPhone’s.

Last few days when I visit Res Dubs
“Not Secure” displayed.

Anyone able to explain?

#647

Probably cos there’s a lot of very insecure people here

It’s using a HTTP connection rather than HTTPS. It’s a ruse to stop Cork people and southsiders from joining.

I suppose this could go in the politics thread either, recently got a new Huawei phone and according to today’s news Google /Android will no longer update Huawei phones. So will apps downloaded from play store continue to work if an updated version should be installed?.

#651

Apps will work but you won’t get any more updates of the Android OS.

#652

Wondering that too. Have a P10 since last year & love it. :frowning_face:

So Gmail & Google Maps will continue to work, but you won’t have access to any new bells & whistles on newer versions, as the Android OS itself won’t update?

#653

Wow, that’s mental, just reading about it “The move follows President Trump’s executive order that effectively bans Huawei in the US. Chipmakers will reportedly stop selling to Huawei, too.”

Potential for spieing by the Chinese .

#654

Correct.

#655

Awful shame. They’re a cracking phone.

#656

Agree, I really like this phone

#657

I’m not bothered too much by what’s in the updates these days . If your happy with it now you should be ok .

#658

You should take note that security updates will no longer be available either.

#659

But the reason for the ban is for "security reasons* so it sounds like their security updates aren’t up to much anyway if they’re afraid of Huawei
