[Poll Results!] How often do you check for software updates on your Samsung phone?
Samsung has received considerable criticism for being too slow in releasing software updates to its smartphones and tablets. The South Korean giant has improved quite a bit in the last year or so, and it has been releasing monthly security updates to most Galaxy devices for some time now. Samsung has improved a lot in terms of software design as well. Unlike other smartphone brands who just updated the underlying Android version, Samsung released a visual overhaul for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge (and other existing devices) with the Nougat update, with plenty of additional features.
Software updates are a hotly debated topic when it comes to Samsung devices, and we have been wondering how often people check for software updates on their Samsung phone or tablet. Some of us here at SamMobile do it more often than we would care to admit, partly because we want updates like everyone else and because we’re in the business of writing about them. What about you? Cast your vote in the poll below to let us know, and get a discussion going in the comments section!
Poll Results: Most readers (28%) say that they check for software updates at least a couple of times a week, while 24% of voters do it more frequently: at least once a day. Around 13% voters check for updates a few times every day and 18% voters do it at least a couple of times a month.
Not everyone is so keen on checking for updates, though. 13% check for updates only when they read about them and 3% of voters don’t check for an update manually as they like to wait for updates to show up.
