Android 9 Pie was having issues within the One UI but as within the latest updates rolling out those bugs were fixed along with better improvements.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy A8 bought from Canada, you might have received the OTA update and if not then it is possible to check the update manually by navigating from Settings -> System -> Advanced -> System updates. If the update isn’t available then you can wait for 2 or 3 days as distributing updates can take days to reach within a region. So sit back and wait for the Notification to pop up!
