Very professionally done. You should really remove this page and put 'updates to come to Android phones one day, we're not really sure when.' I think I will be switching phones to the nexus devices to actually get updates faster than this half a snail's pace. The Telus experience is not one I'm impressed with. Makes me consider switching providers.
Samsung Note 9 update again missed its drop date for the second time in a row. 😒
I was hoping it would be just a couple of days late like last time, but still nothing.
A little annoying since this one is supposed to be the One UI 2.5 update.
Hoping that it shows up on Monday, but if things mirror last month it won't arrive until the S9 update on the 10th.
In what is likely the last feature update for that device being missed, it doesn't bod well for security updates on Telus in the future, or the next couple of years for the Note 10 / 20 when Telus can't do 2 years support, 3 years seems like a stretch, and forget the A71 and the like getting that promoted 3 years support on Telus if the flagships can't get respect for the entirety of their promised support. 🤨
Samsung needs to untie itself from the carriers who undermine the platform, for the hefty premium now even above Apple devices, the devices should be updated directly from Samsung, just like iOS.
So is that a typo in the list, or is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 really getting an Optimization Update 6 years after release?? 🤨
As it's the same date at the Note 20, one can only hope that it's a typo swapping a handwritten look-alike 4 = 9, and that this is the new timeframe for the Note 9 One UI 2.5 update, missed earlier in the month. 🤔
I'm more than a little disappointed that even with the new S21 that Samsung won't be enabling Seamless Updates that was supposed to come as a core feature of Android 11. 🤬
It would make life so much easier, not only for individuals, but for managed deployments. The A/B partition would avoid a bunch of headaches of failed installs and corruption, and even allow the possibility for an easier undo should features go terribly wrong.
While I enjoy some Samsung specific add-ons to basic Android, it is the pain that is a fractured update ecosystem that makes me long for bare-bones Android on Samsung devices, which would also put less pressure on carrier-specific stuff and OTA updates. 🤨
Oh well, add it to the list of good ideas discarded by Samsung. 😒
@NewfieWannabe One UI 3.1 hasn't been released for any Qualcomm Note 20 yet, just the Exynos models.
No N.Am. carrier has launched it yet. It is expected March 3rd for Telus & Fido (and likely Rogers and Bell although not on Rogers scheduler yet), and no date posted for US carriers yet.
Also the February N20/20U update didn't hit any N.Am. carrier either with AT&T , T-Mob & Verizon's last update for the Note 20/20U being the January 1 patch distributed in January (15th, 8th, and 15th respectively).
GS20 and A71 update arrived on Sept 29 no problemo.. however, Note 9 update still not coming through on OTA, still sitting on August security patch. A bit disappointing for something that doesn't required extra work like a One UI update.
Hopefully it will arrive on Oct 6th along with the Note 8 and S10 updates.
... or that the next refresh of the schedule shows it is the One UI 2.5 update for the Note 9 sometime mid-October and the reason why it's being 'skipped'/missed. But that's likely expecting a bit much since it hasn't even hit Europe yet.
So what's going on with the S21 updates? The June update was released but Telus isn't letting us have it yet? I think next time I'm buying an unlocked phone direct from Samsung, getting tired of waiting for updates which I don't think should be a carriers job.
My Samsung Galaxy S10 is still on the February 2022 security patch and now my company has locked me out from receiving email because my device does not comply with the security policies. Can someone please advise when the March or even April releases will be available as it's already the end of May! I cannot use my device for work now and makes me want to switch providers.
