Re: Android Software Updates

Your still missing the point that a patch is not an update, it's repairing critical security bugs. And yes it is behind because July Security Patches are already in use on overseas s10 plus models. This means like usual Australian Carriers/Optus are behind. 

 

And it still doesn't get around the fact that a Security Patch can be released for installation OTA immediately once it's received from the manufacturer without carrier testing intervention.

Re: Android Software Updates

Champ you're missing the point. Samsung release patches and OS improvements monthly, as one package. Optus have no control of splitting it up.

So yes it does need to be tested as its OS improvements combined with security.

Not every device gets it on the same day, its incremental release. Still not behind, chill out. If you dont have the patience to wait 1 or 2 weeks for that process, a security patch isnt your biggest issue.

Re: Android Software Updates

Your missing the point altogether I never said Optus had control over what's provided,  but what should be happening. 

 

Cut your arm open go to hospital..You get stitches they might use the term we'll patch your arm up. Not we'll UPDATE your arm. It's called English language.

Screenshot_20190727-141909_Software update.jpgJUNE Security Patches and Software Updates add Night Mode and Super Slo Motion to the Camera. 

 

So why are Optus still on May Security Patches when July Security Patches and Software Updates are already released.

Re: Android Software Updates

Still nothing mentioned for the Samsung A50, currently on May, and July has rolled out, people in other countries are starting to get August already. Seriously Optus!

Re: Android Software Updates

The A50 gets quarterly updates from Samsung, so no, other countries definitely arent on August if July just rolled out.

Re: Android Software Updates

Actually the A50 has indeed started receiving August. 

 

There was a June security patch and updates, there was also a July Security Patches and Software Updates so no it's NOT quarterly
