YUKI93, 26 Jan 2021"Glass only breaks if you're butterfingered walrus." Yeah, right. No they do... moreAnd back all worn out by carefully placing phone on wooden desk and into perfectly clean pockets because it's made of plastic totally wins the argument here. You're giving extreme case examples and I'm giving you just the regular careful use. Stop defending crap cheap materials because vendors want to save a buck and increase margins. Jesus. This isn't a 300€ Realme that you throw away and don't care about anything. It's a freaking 850€ phone. And I'm the crazy here apparently.
Not too happy with their Exynos processor series I switched to Mi 10T Pro
Where is my s10 android 11 update !!

Yeah, right. No they don't! It can even break when slipped under the table. You must be the only guy who thinks cracked glass look more beautiful than scratched plastic.

Also you can put case over glass if you like plastic so much. How am I suppose to put glass on plastic to have glass back? Your bullet proof logic...
Hildr, 26 Jan 2021If I take example my country, polycarbonate (2700€/metric ton imported) is far more expensive ... moreYou in all seriousness believe Samsung, one of worlds largest manufacturers full stop buys materials at counter prices? LMAO
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2021yes but plastic doesn't breakExcept it gets scratched if you just look funny at it. Which means phone will look like crap even when handling it carefully. Glass only breaks if you're butterfingered walrus.

Why not schedule it to install while your sleeping.
As if this is a real complaint?
Lock it, 26 Jan 2021Shady practice and on top of that they lock your bootloader. So that you solely depend on them... moreAnd then some idiot screws up, bricks his phone and constantly complains about Samsung quality.
Keep the bootloader locked as it functions 100% without issue.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2021I'm definitely in the minority here, but after android 5 lollipop, the updates are pretty... moreYeah, kinda.
I have a U11 with Android 9 I think, and I think the updates isnce weren't that big, to miss features, but they brought problems.
The latest addition I cared about was the native USB3 support.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2021Samsung make their own NAND flash so no excuses. They can add more easily.No excuses? It's not free just because they can make it themselves. That's the dvmbest I've heard in a long time.
Funny enough my LG does support this...
Less funny is how slow the updates are being released on my LG, but I got the phone for different reasons than that.
potato4k, 26 Jan 2021Why would any Android OEM make updating seamless? They want to make sure updating is as annoyi... moreMaybe it was because of that seamless update policy that a lot of people still prefer to own a Pixel phone. With other Android OEM, you have to wait until they do roll out assuming that all phone models will receive it. With the Pixel, you can straightaway get it on Day 1.
Recovery partition is a good feature. Anything go wrong, you can rollback.
"Samsung’s reasoning for delaying such a feature is unknown."
Could the reason be, wasted space? :)
When Microsoft introduced that 500MB service partition the outrage was huge. Imagine wasting a few gigglebytes just to save a few minutes every month.
If it was dynamic and only created the partition during upgrades, this would be nice.
I wonder how big is the size of an entire Android ROM with its custom UI skin. From my experience flashing a lot of pure stock custom ROMs without Google Mobile Services baked in, I never see more than 12GB of size. Since we see a lot of phones now offer 128GB as the base internal storage even on midrange-tier smartphones, seamless updates should be a breeze.
AnonD-804996, 26 Jan 2021Plastic is ALWAYS bad when a phone has a 800+ € price tag...Plastic back can be covered with a case which is how most people with glass back use their phones. One can even put a skin on it.
You know what else is bad for an above 800€ phone???
60hz screen, sub 20W fast charging with weak battery life, tiny sensor that needs auto mode and handicappped software of iOS.
