Samsung - They Are Finally Doing It Right

Samsung has finally gotten better at software updates. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite will be revealed at CES 2020.

Samsung makes one of the best devices out there!
But there's one area they're not really good at when you compare it to so companies like
Apple and Google, is the timely software updates.
I see a lot of comments in which you guys express your frustration at Samsung taking
its sweet time to release updates.
Many of you say that you will give up on the company and switch to another brand.
It’s pertinent to mention here that Samsung is perhaps the only major Android manufacturer
to release a lot of devices every year in almost all markets, big and small, and the
fact that it manages to update them all is impressive regardless of how much time it

But still I do agree that they should do better with these updates and thankfully it looks
like Samsung has gotten significantly better at providing timely software updates.
The Galaxy S10 got the Android 10 update in November which is way earlier when you compare
it to last year with the Galaxy S9.
The Galaxy Note 10 also got the Android 10 update a couple of weeks later.
Also, earlier Samsung typicaly used to wait until after the release of its Galaxy S flagships
to ship devices with the latest version of Android.
But that changed this year, the midrange devices like the Galaxy A51, A71 and also some Galaxy
M devices was launched with the Android 10 out of the box.
Upcoming devices like the Galaxy S10 lite and Note 10 Lite will also come with Android
10 right of the box.

Not only that Samsung has gotten better in providing security updates too.
Devices like the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 10 has gotten the december security updates before
the schedule and even before the Pixel devices.
So Samsung is getting better in the software update department, they've certainly come
a long way and it's something I guess should be brought to notice.
The only thing that they need to change now is the duration of the software support.
Right now they give updates for 2 years and I think it's time now to make that 3 years
considering how ridiculousy expensive phones have gotten these days and people are holding
onto their devices longer than ever before.

The Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite are near flagship devices.
We've talked about the features of these two handsets quite a few times in the past but
today we have learned about a new feature that makes these devices really compelling.
You ssee both of these devices will also have the 3D optical fingeprint scanner.
It's not going to be the optical one which is good because not only it's not secure but
Samsung's optical scanner implementation is not really good.

So good to see they're going to see the same fingerprint scanners that their premium flagship
devices come with.
That said, these two devices will be launched at CES tech show which will be held in January.
