    @jdan thanks for the link. I think that on that page HMD are only referring to the phones they list on that page, which are also the phones which are all part of the Android Enterprise Recommended programme, as I referred above.

      The camera firmware is updated to V20.0072.01 (from 20.0071.03) and on first glance the double misaligned icon bug is fixed if that was an issue for you.

    Digital Wellbeing disabled within 5 minutes :D

    I'm indoors, in a poor environment for reliabley testing if the compass bug is fixed... and can't leave just yet.

    So this update came this morning for me. It seems to have improved adaptive brightness. However i still have the compass 180° issue as well as poor "ok Google" detection 😓

    Couldn't even force it with a dead Three SIM or an active GiffGaff (O2) SIM, seems that old trick has long been found out and killed off.

    Clearly a punishment for being  a beta tester! Never again!

    Still not showing for me in France on an active SYMA SIM (but as I said before, it appeared with a dead SIM from another operator).

    Wonder why they are bothering to distribute this upgrade now? I've had it since 20 February and it didn't fix the compass or the photo tagging quirks (now you tag me, now you don't)...

    I've a feeling if you are on the beta you aren't going to get anything until HMD release a new version of Android 9.

    They don't have Pie build with March security update for Nokia 8, that's why.

    If you signed up for the beta and installed it and didn't roll back to Oreo then you have the beta.

    @galvakojis whatever pie you have, it is a beta. Literally! The only thing that changed between the beta-labs "beta" and the current "official 'stable' beta" is that the feedback app from the beta-labs session disappeared.
    Edit: oh, and the latest "official 'stable' beta" added the digital wellbeing and adaptive battery/brightness.

    HMD clearly have a list of beta testers who can be identified by their phones IMEI number so that  they can be easily identified for OTA updates. My money is on that they have lost the list!

    That information is wrong though because you say:

    Some people in this discussion say Pie beta - but that is confusing, as some of you may first have received a real PIe beta through Beta Labs. So, if you have received the January security patch you are on the official Nokia 8 Pie.

    As i have said before i am on the android 9 beta supplied via the beta labs and pushed OTA on 11/12/2018 and i am on the January security patch.

    You can tell if you are on the beta or not because you'll remember signing up for it in the beta area of the website and you will have received it after checking your IMEI, it is as simple as that.

    I was hoping that they stopped rolling out the update to fix it. That being the reason for the delay.
    But yeah so far I can agree not alot different from before.
    Camera wise......Still can't switch to pro mode while the phone is horizontal.
    Still refocusing on the centre after 3 seconds regardless of where I set the focus point.

    And the compass still belongs with captain Jack sparrow. Just randomly pointing any direction when held horizontal.
    Vertically it's 180 degrees out.

    @mrbelter
    I have no doubt that you are a beta tester.
    But I think that if beta testers have the same build number as the official build number that they are on the official build really. So if they haven't received the February update yet, this has nothing to do with the fact that they are beta testers. Of course I can be wrong ...

    Using that logic everyone that installed the first general release is also a beta tester even if they don't have the feedback app.

    My wife's phone running the original pie release as just updated to the second second pie release. Mine which is on the beta however has had nothing (same network).

    Still no update for your phone? Last month you got the January update one day later, I guess from that discussion? Were both phones updated to the same build then, or weren't they? You didn't answer the question, I think.
    My logic was based on:

    I signed for beta, but didn't installed it,  waited for an official build.
    So? Can this be a reason for such delay?

    No update to my phone.

    Nokia said the beta was good enough to use as a general release and pushed it as such. Even if the the beta release and the initial Pie release are identical in every way possible apart from the feedback app the fact remains if you installed the beta, it is phoning home and HMD know which phones have it and which phone don't have it. My Nokia 8 is constantly checking for updates, when you manually check the phone has always checked recently anyway, my wife's on the other hand does not exhibit this behaviour.

    My point is even if the builds are identical the phone is different by the very nature of your IMEI being embroiled in the beta program and this seems to effect the timeline of how you receive future builds. When 8.1 was released the beta testers were the last to receive the general of it and these "where is my update" conversions were also taking place.

    Of course that might be all cobblers and were all just in a massive queue awaiting out turn.
