Is there somewhere we can get the patchnotes for this update?

 

Is like i kernal update or a adroid update?

 

Don't really want to take the chance and update if i don't care about the fixes.

 

Surprised there's an update at all since they don't sell the phone anymore?

Hi @iAmDisappoint

 

It would certainly be nice if Vodafone sent out patches and updates on request but alas that isn't possible. 

And as Vodafone Highstreet Stores cannot apply software the only safe way is to periodically check the phones software update section. 

Applying a Custom Rom can bring negatives as well as possible negatives. 

Also just to touch on your comment on the age of a phone then Yes typically a phone can be only be supported sometimes for a certain timeframe. 

Current Phone > Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G - SM9860 Snapdragon.

Samsung One Ui 2.5  / Android 10.

I don't understand what you're saying? Did you even read my post?

 

There IS a new update as of the 1st of September!

 

I just don't want to install it until I see some feedback or a list of the bugfixes.

@iAmDisappoint Are the patch notes not showing on the update screen when prompted to install? If not, please can you screenshot what does appear in this section? This will help us identify what kind of update this may be.

There was literally zero information.

I went ahead despite being in the dark as I hoped it had addressed some long standing issues.

 

I notice no changes, no new bugs or performance issues old bugs and software issues persist.

 

I am now on build number MRB03. Updated from MRB01-3
