So far, the updates seem to have landed in a much-needed burst rather than as a trickle. One of my early reports of the device had noted that at least five updates (over the course of a single month) had rolled out, a nice trend.
In the UK, some users have been complaining of new features that aren’t present in any of the Samsung builds, so it’s possible there’s a difference between beta and final builds. One of the bugs was described as “a memory leak bug”, and this is the one I’m seeing now. The problem is in the System Info screen, which is supposed to show the Android version (and the version to which that version is rooted). It says you have Android 7.1.1, but instead of the Android 7.0.0 Nougat version, you get 7.1.1 Beta. I’m not sure if this means there could be two versions, but if so, there doesn’t seem to be any way to check the beta against a final build for this.
Here we see a screenshot of the screen being displayed in the beta.
There’s no way of checking for the latest builds in the beta
If you’re having problems, or get a different image that you’re not getting from the official app, you can disable access to system info in system settings and then enable manual mode.
It seems that the “Memory leaks” bug is at least a half-a-dozen different bugs. If you have a Galaxy S10, and this isn’t working for you, then the best workaround is to back up your data and try to restore to the most recent build, if possible at a different location . . . with the original Nougat system settings app . The instructions here , and here are invaluable.
If you’re enjoying the Galaxy S10 from what I’ve seen, I’d be thrilled for you to share your experiences in the comments.
