Wait for the Best Software Support
If you want the best version of Samsung's Android 11 update, think about waiting for the Galaxy S20.
While it might be tempting to go with a cheaper device like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S10, software support for those devices will end much sooner.
Samsung now keeps devices upgraded with major updates for two to three years before ending support which means popular devices like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S8 will likely miss out on Android 11.
The Galaxy S21's status as the company's flagship also ensures that you'll get the best version of Android 11 and Samsung's One UI.
Older devices sometimes miss out on software features due to hardware limitations and that's a risk you take buying an older model over a newer one.
