Back in 2017, the Galaxy S8 represented a big step in the evolution of Samsung's flagship S line-up, removing the home button and igniting the war on display bezels in the process. Four years later, it's still a great-looking phone, but it's sadly reached the end of the line when it comes to updates Samsung has ended software support for both the S8 and S8+, as well as moving other older devices to a less regular update schedule.

Last year, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ stopped receiving monthly security patches, only getting them quarterly from that point forward. They have now been removed from the list of supported devices altogether. The S8 Active is still getting quarterly updates and the S8 Lite will continue to get them biannually for a little while longer as they were released later than the regular models.

If you're still using the Galaxy S8 as your primary phone, now would be the time to upgrade to something else. Security updates are critical in keeping you safe and secure against online threats, especially if you use the device for online shopping or banking.
