The Samsung Galaxy S21 are the first big Android range tops of the year. This trio wants to be an example to be followed by their rivals, however, it continues to ignore a more comfortable method of installing new updates.
As pointed out by editor Brandon Lee, from the publication 9to5 Google, the Samsung Galaxy S21 does not yet install updates in the background. That is, whenever a new update needs to be installed, you will be required to restart the device.
Samsung Galaxy S21 still does not install updates in the background
Google modified the methods for installing new updates on its operating system with the launch of Android Nougat. Available in 2016, from this version it would be possible to continue using the smartphone while it installs an update.
Although the possibility has been available for more than four years, there are few brands that have joined it. Samsung, with its Galaxy S21, is another case of the reluctance to adopt this method much more comfortable for users.
Most may not see any major disadvantages to having their equipment unavailable for a few minutes due to the installation of an update. But since this is unnecessary, I believe that many would wish that it would not hinder the use of the equipment.
Memory limitations may be reason for Samsung’s reluctance
It should be noted that background installations require approximately 3GB of available storage at the time. This is due to the creation of a second partition on which the data for the new update will be installed. Once the device is restarted, it will become the main system partition.
It should be noted that Samsung has not yet justified the absence of background updates on its top end. However, the fact that the Galaxy S21 does not have memory expansion by microSD card may be an excuse for this absence.
In any case, nothing prevents Samsung from enabling this feature in the future. There just has to be a desire for the South Korean, since the option can be easily enabled with a software update.
