    I have December Security Patch but no Oreo Beta yet even after requesting OTA 2 days back.

    I ran away from beta testing, unfortunately too many problems such as the inability to use the application only pops up the “close applications” and closes itself.
    When I enter the camera – options, and I want to give back I can not go back.
    And where is Dolby Sorund? Disappeared?

      Did you provide feedback to HMD. That will help.
