This Galaxy S20 guide explains why you should update Galaxy S20 regularly, when and how to update Galaxy S20 to Android 11 (and One UI 3.0), and how to enable and play the Android 11 Easter egg game (Neko Cat) on Galaxy S20.
Android 11 (with One UI 3.0) update has been rolled out to a few Samsung Galaxy devices including Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy Note 10, in addition to Galaxy S20. This guide applies to all these phone models.
Why should you update Galaxy S20 regularly?
Many Galaxy S20 owners may be scared by updates, possibly due to poor user experiences in the past, for example, losing personal data or customisation. Therefore, some owners may refuse to update Galaxy S20.
This is dangerous.
First, Android monthly security update (patch) is essential.
You may be unaware that there are many prying eyes (through apps) on Galaxy S20. Some bad guys may use some exploits or bugs to gain unauthorised access to your personal or sensitive data on the device.
Android monthly security update patches and fixes some exploits and bugs to keep your Galaxy S20 relatively safer.
Of course, the update cannot stop apps from collecting data because you granted permission. But it can prevent unauthorised data collection.
In some regions, Samsung issued the update monthly. In other areas, the update may be delivered quarterly depending on your region. Samsung has a good record of updating Galaxy S phones for about 3 years.
Second, Android updating is matured.
In the past, some users might encounter some issues after the update. Some data went missing mystically. Some customisations were lost under your nose.
Sometimes, the update might break your favourite apps.
These issues have become rarer in recent years, thanks to the improved and matured Android update system.
New versions of Android brings new life for Galaxy S20.
Each version of Android adds some new features and improvements. In recent releases, privacy, security, and data protection are the focus of Android core update.
At the same time, Samsung uses the Android version update to bring new versions of the One UI, which improves the usability and adds some new features as well.
