Android 8.0 Oreo Versus Android 8.1 Update
Is Android 8.1 so much better than 8.0 it is worth waiting for?

8.0 and 8.1 were released less than four months apart so you may be thinking how much could 8.1 really have advanced over 8.0.

A Couple Of Android 8.1's Updates 

With Android 8.1 Oreo the battery level of Bluetooth devices connected to the phone is shown, in 8.1's predecessors 8.0 Oreo and below only the connected devices status is displayed.

Artificial neural network
A system in small smart inspired by biological neural networks, these type of systems are learning systems.
 Android Neural network processing is what android 8.1 has that 8.0 does not.
Android Neural networks are networks that learn independent of prior knowledge.

Bluboo S3 
Gold Or Black


White, Gray, Blue And Black

I like the blue ribbon the S99 offers as far as colour options go I think it looks the best.  Designs are both anti-slip.

The S3 weighs more it includes a larger battery, screen, and more sensors.

Audio 3.5mm Port VS Type C USB

Type C USB is the future of phones so much so that phones like the Bluboo S3 often replace 3.5mm port with type C USB entirely. 
What if you still want to use 3.5mm devices?
3.5 mm devices can still be used with Type-C 3.5mm Earphone Adapter included in the S3 accessories. HOMTOM have given the S99 the standard 3.5mm audio port.
