seamless updates on the Galaxy S9 and S9
Earlier this week, I noticed that my Galaxy S9+ review unit had an OTA update available. This update addressed some stability issues with the camera and put the phone on the latest coque iphone 7 cils security patch (which is certainly a good thing). iphone 6 coque dragon ball commandokieffer35511 But at nearly 250MB, it was quite a sizable update, too, and so installation took a bit to complete my phone was out of commission for over five minutes.
Really, though, it shouldn’t have been. Android introduced a feature called seamless updates as part of the 7.0 Nougat release. in 2016. Google’s Pixel phones were the first to ship with it later that year. But it’s now 2018, and the Galaxy S9 and S9+ ship with Android 8.0 Oreo. They still don’t have nba coque iphone 6 coqueiphone128323 seamless updates.
If you’re not familiar, seamless updates (also known as A/B updates) allow coque rouge iphone 6 fnac commandokieffer30275 an OS update to your phone to install in the background while you’re still using it. Once the update has been completed again, all in the background you simply reboot your device (which effectively takes no longer than a normal reboot) and you’re off and running.
The point is coque de telephone iphone 6 stitch commandokieffer31711 this: seamless updates can take a process that easily meant five minutes of hard downtime coque iphone 7 plus disney original for your phone or much longer for a major update and reduce it to less than 30 seconds. With many Android phones now getting security patches on a monthly basis, this is a major convenience, and one that takes a coque iphone 7 complementaire lot of the pain out of the updating coque star wars iphone 6s commandokieffer30992 process.
The problem is that many manufacturers, Samsung included, still aren’t adopting it. can you use fornite w8548 coque iphone 6 iphone 6s 1coques6siphone8067 coque iphone 6 for iphone7 coqueiphone133003 The reasons for this are probably numerous. For one, implementing seamless updates requires a fundamental set of changes to Android’s traditional storage partitioning system, something that vendors are likely loathe to deal with. And a second drawback comes in the form of using more storage space, since seamless updates require that you essentially have coque de telephone iphone 6s rose commandokieffer32430 two instances of best coque iphone 6 clear back coque iphone xs max silicone avec la pomme coqueiphone142674 the OS coque iphone 6 acdc commandokieffer34807 installed on the device (“A” and “B” images).
Whatever coque iphone 7 or rose marbre blanc Samsung’s reasoning is be it a simple lack of will or fear users won’t like having marginally less usable storage on their phones this is a bit ridiculous. The benefits of seamless coque iphone xr visage updates are quite obvious, and with security more and more a concern on our mobile devices, making sure customers aren’t avoiding updating their phones chemicals wallpaper p0291 coque iphone 6 iphone 6s 1coques6siphone10568 because of the time the process takes should be a concern manufacturers and carriers are taking seriously. Google has provided a feature that effectively makes updating your phone painless. Samsung has had well over a year to adopt it, and probably a solid two years of motomo coque iphone 6 white coqueiphone129000 notice that this change was coming.
It’s a little sad, but Google will likely have to make seamless updates mandatory before many coque iphone street fighter unlimited l2662 coque iphone 6 iphone 6s 1coques6siphone13081 7 space OEMs will comply and implement them, despite coque iphone 6 madame raleuse commandokieffer34104 the obvious user experience benefits. Samsung should be doing this on its own not waiting for Google to [probably inevitably] set a deadline…
