The Android Oreo Update is seriously causing some major system failures. I do not know who to turn to right now.
My Samsung Note 8 was working great on Nougat and I was very excited to update it to Oreo! However, once I did that that's when things started going downhill. Once a day I'll start getting some "This application has stopped working, Stop it or Wait" over multiple applications, GMail, Facebook, Samsung Pay, ANT+, WIFI, and even System apps such as the Kernel or even the System UI and other things that complex names. Over time it just got worse and rebooting the phone was the only option. I would start getting this twice a day then every couple of hours.
I did what I knew I could do and did a System Cache Reset. It didn't fix the issue, so I exchanged it with my warranty. I got a "Fresh" new phone. I updated it and set the phone up completely by installing everything (Even updating the McAfee before updating to Nougat, which was said to be an issue). I even cleared my Samsung Micro SD card (Which is there fastest Micro SD card on the market for 128gb) and formatted it using the phone to see if that was an issue with corruption. The issue crept up on me again after a couple days of using it and now its happening every couple of hours now. Everything seems to completely crash not just applications that I've installed but system applications that I have no control over, such as network applications, wifi applications, bluetooth applications, you name it. At one point there were at least 10 ANR's on screen at once, and sometimes the screen will act like it won't turn on at all. Applications that I haven't even touched are crashing. There was even a time I opened the camera took 2 pictures and it froze (didn't save a picture) and I had to hold the power key down for 2-3 minutes until it hard rebooted.
This is getting rather annoying. I know that the Oreo came out about 10 months ago and this is probably version 1 of Oreo from when it first came out. However, I cannot definitively know what's going on. Does anyone have any idea what could be the issue or have a solution as to why this is happening?
