Verizon and Samsung continually disappoint by not keeping their devices up to date 

Android 7.12 was released in feb  the latest security update  is July

My s8 plus 7.00 May security patch

Both companies are at fault charge a premium but don't deliver on enhancements or security

This is why I struggle to stick with any android phone. Verizon has control of updates and they are absolutely terrible at pushing them out. Hard to believe they have not improved the process.

I got Bixby updates straight from the galaxy app store. I've been using Bixby voice. I don't know that you have to wait on Verizon's update for that. I didn't at least.
