Clash Royale: 10 Tips for Beginners

Published

on

This guide will go over some helpful Clash Royale tips and tricks. Perfect for beginners looking to learn how to play and start winning. The game has been extremely popular since it was released nearly one year ago. In fact, it won game of the year from Apple and Best Game by Google Play. For those just getting started, here are some helpful Clash Royale tips and tricks.

Clash of Clans was a popular game for years, but it’s starting to get overshadowed by Clash Royale. Featuring many of the same troops, characters, gold, elixir and other elements, but in a top-down real-time strategy style game. It has card collecting and real opponents you battle on the spot, which is extremely fun.

For those who’ve just downloaded it and are struggling to win, we have some tips that may help. Beginners can learn to fight off the Prince or Giant, play good defense, take down enemy buildings, and get a victory. Read on for lots of details, strategy and tips to get higher up into better Arenas.

Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 9.07.59 AMClash Royale could be more addicting than Clash of Clans, so use caution before downloading it. It’s that good, that polished, and extremely fun. Get familiar with the layout and managing resources like gold, then build a deck for battle. We’d recommend having two or three good decks ready at any moment. Take our advice below to have a good strategy and a balanced attack as you go to war.

With Clash Royale you fight the enemy in real-time, and they fight back. Players need to use offense and defense, strategy, and timing to win. The bigger and more troops you use, the longer the wait for Elixir to regenerate before deploying more troops. Figure out a good strategy, and stick with it. In the beginning your troops are likely outmatched, but keep playing and learn to outsmart the enemy.

Before we start it’s always a good idea to see the latest changelogs (like our link above) as the game is constantly changing. The Giant isn’t as strong as before, Golems do tons of damage, and the Log is great for clearing small troops. Always stay up to date on the latest updates. Big changes can be the difference between winning and losing if you didn’t read about an update. Not to mention using new cards like the Executioner. It was just released, and its so vital you almost need to use it in order to win. Then, below are some tips to help beginners win more battles in Clash Royale.

Spend Gold Wisely

Gold is the most important currency in Clash Royale. Players don’t farm it like in Clash of Clans, and instead it’s earned by winning battles. You can also earn gold from free daily chests or clan chests. The more battles you win, the more chests you can unlock. Some take three hours to unlock, some take eight, and even 12 hours. I start those before heading to bed. It’s a long wait, but worth it. The Crown Chest gives out the most gold.

Clash Royale troops (or cards) are upgraded by getting more of the same card. Once you have enough, spend gold to upgrade it to a powerful unit. Like the Giant, Goblins, skeletons, Hog Rider, and many other troops from Clash of Clans. It’s important to update troops as you progress, but don’t upgrade everything. Gold needs to be spent wisely, and sparingly. Only upgrade what you plan to use, and save as much as you can for the important upgrades later. You do want a good variety when changes come, but some troops early on just aren’t worth upgrading, and this will slow progression. Upgrade the cards you use the most, for a stronger and more capable army. Be careful not to over-level one card too much, as you never know when an update will make it less useful.

Taking part in challenges or Tournaments is a great way to earn gold and cards to upgrade too. The Grand Challenge can earn you hundreds of cards and lots of gold. Instantly allowing for huge upgrades that can turn the battle in your favor.

Have Variety in Your Battle Deck

The most important thing for beginners is setting up your deck. There are three different decks you can assemble and have on-hand, ready to fight with. Each troop has a number of Elixir cost. Don’t have all 2-3’s, and don’t have too many 5’s. They take longer, cost more, and you’ll quickly get outmatched and overrun. Variety and balance is key.

Mix up your deck with both high and low troops

Mix up your deck with both high and low troops

Mix up your deck with both high and low Elixir troops, as well as both ground and air. Giving you a wide array of options at any moment. If everything costs too much you’ll have moments where there are no cards available to play, and lose. A few cheap cards like the Fire Spirits are a great cheap counter. I use the Ice Spirit in every single deck. Don’t forget to have at least one or two “splash damage” cards. Like the Valkyrie, spells, or even Archers. If you get a Legendary, use it.

Adding a good variety of high and low level troops, as well as mixed air and ground becomes increasingly more important as the game progresses too. If the enemy has ground troops, drop a Dragon or Minions to kill them without taking any damage. Then turn that into a counter-attack. It’s all about timing, and strategy. This is one of the best yet most simple strategy games I’ve played on a mobile device. Another idea is “cycle decks”. All cheap cards with one expensive kill card. Then cycle through everything fast for a quick defense that turns into an offense as you drop a big card. Watch out for Poison or Fireball though. A big group is a nice target for the enemy to earn an Elixir advantage.

Use Skeleton Attacks

There are multiple different Skeleton troops, and everything but the Giant Skeleton are very weak, die quick, and are susceptible to arrow attacks. That said, Skeletons are a great distraction to deploy just before dropping a bigger “tank” troop to do heavy damage. Skeleton Army is a great card early on, and lately its even better the further you progress. They’re deadly when combined with the Hog, and are a great defense.

Royale-skeletons

Try pairing Skeletons with a Giant, and watch it instantly cruise down and take out a Tower with just two moves. Skeletons are just as good on defense as they are on offense. Use them to quickly stop a full speed Price, or wipe out a Giant. Watch out for Zap though, and have a backup plan. Thinking ahead is crucial in Royale. On the flipside, I always have arrows ready to follow my Prince or Giant to take out enemy skeletons or Minions. And remember, what works now might be weaker after an update. So be prepared to make adjustments often.

Test New Decks in Training Battles

This may seem silly, as losing a match doesn’t really hurt players aside from the trophy count, but test any new deck before fighting in multiplayer. Trophies put you in higher league or arena, gives out better chests and more gold. So you’ll want to win as much as possible. Don’t lose trophies while testing decks. Fight clan-members or practice in the training grounds.

Read: Clash Royale Decks to Reach Arena 6 and Beyond

Once you feel confident and have fine-tuned the deck, then fight real opponents. Before you start, continue reading the rest of our tips for a better chance at victory. The trainers aren’t very smart either, so battle clan members too.

I do challenges to practice new decks and strategies. Yes it costs gems, but I’d rather learn in there than losing trophies on the ladder in multiplayer.

Don’t Attack First

Early on I was always first to attack, and my troops were getting countered by the enemy, and putting me behind from the start. It’s also a good idea not to attack first to keep the Elixir advantage. This alone can win battles. Players should wait for the Elixir bar to get full before attacking, and if possible, wait for the enemy to deploy first, to help choose the best troop and strategy to begin. This is called a positive elixir trade. Drop a 2-Elixir card to kill a 4-Elixir card. That puts you ahead. It will build up to a push the enemy can’t stop and you’ll win.

This doesn’t always work, but a good defense wins championships in the NFL, and the same rule applies here. Being able to have a solid defense allows players time to fill up Elixir, and counter-attack. Turn a strong defense into a powerful counter offensive attack. Another idea is saving select cards for the 1:00 minute mark, then surprise the enemy for a quick win. If you attack first, you’ve likely given away a secret kill card or strategy. I always save the Freeze spell for the final few pushes to catch the enemy off guard.

Don’t Rush Attacks

clash-royale

At times rushing an attack with multiple troops and starting heavy can overwhelm the enemy. And when this happens it feels good. However, good players will do what we mentioned above and defend, then counter with a solid offense and take out a tower. Using too many forces at once can often put you behind. If the enemy drops an Elixir collector and a Giant I know they have none left, so I push the other lane. Be smart with what you do. Take your time and be precise with each move. Don’t just use whatever card is up. Think about it, take positive Elixir trades and build up an advantage.

I’ve learned to start with one or two light troops, seeing what the enemy has, then going big with a Giant, followed by a Musketeer or similar. That or my second move will be a strong counter attack. Of course everyone will have a different strategy, approach, and style. Rushing may work for some, but beginners will want to take their time and learn first, much like a chess match, then out maneuver the enemy. Once you’ve learned which cards counter others best, rush your attacks if you’d like, and be prepared for a quick response from the enemy.

Another way to do a successful rush attack is during the middle of the battle. I wouldn’t recommend attacking a different tower if one already has damage, but a surprise push on the other side may catch them off-guard. It’s a quick way to win. Try it with the Minion Hoard.

Use Spells Often

In the early stages of Clash Royale most players don’t have spells, but within a week or so of playing you’ll likely have the Freeze spell, and then in arena 3-4 get the Rage spell. Freeze will as you expect, freeze everything. This is one of those cards I save to the end and use with precision for a last-minute surprise and instant victory.

The purple “Rage” spell increases speed, movement, and damage to wreck your enemy. Drop a Giant or Skeleton Giant, wait a few seconds, and drop the Rage. He’ll quickly get to their base, and destroy it. Rage a Balloon and enjoy the results. Now that Rage is only 2 Elixir it isn’t nearly as risky as it was before. Pair that with a balloon and its game over if you can make it to the tower.

Clash-royale-spells

And about that freeze spell, I use it for everything. Perfect placement (and after waiting a few seconds and being risky) paid off as you can see above. I waited longer than I should have for the enemy to drop a troop to take out my balloon, then dropped the freeze. Stopping the tower and Witch both at once, and giving my balloon time to take an entire tower. Think ahead, be methodical, take your time, and use spells as a surprise to your advantage. Spells like the Lightning can also deal that last bit of damage as the clock winds down or in overtime to get a win.

Don’t Drop Trophies

The idea here is to “dump trophies” and be put in a lower arena to be matched up against easier opponents. Similar to dropping a troop and quitting an attack in Clash of Clans. Some do this for what they think is an advantage, but don’t do it. This slows progress, and doesn’t teach you to beat real opponents. Not to mention you’ll win less rewards in lower Arenas.

I keep seeing users mention this on forums, that they’ve been dumping trophies in an effort to lower where they battle to have a better chance at winning. This doesn’t work. Reach Arena 2 and 3 as quick as possible, to upgrade troops and have a better chance at winning.

Royale-goldchest

I’ve just reached level 10 in Clash Royale and battle in Legendary. The higher the arena, the better the “Chests” when you win battles. One chest gave me 101 cannon cards, and gave out enough that I could upgrade it three times. It’s great on defense. That’s a huge upgrade and tons of money just for fighting in a higher Arena. That boost will help users win battles, rather than just fighting easier enemies.

At the end of the day don’t drop trophies just to fight in a lower arena, it’s not worth it.

Check Out Decks on YouTube

Another great idea is to head to YouTube or forums for ideas regarding the perfect deck to attack with. This is both a pro and a con. On the plus side, users have some great variety and extremely well-balanced decks that will help players win. That said, many other players have seen these same decks in the forums or popular videos, and know exactly how to defeat them. Not to mention you may not play it as well as others at first.

Be sure to try out a big variety of different decks to find what works best for you. Don’t rely solely on that though. Clash Royale mixes up the deck card rotation after a win streak, and will quickly make it more difficult to win. When this happens don’t keep trying and hoping you’ll get cards in the order you want. Quickly go in and change things up a bit or take a break from a losing streak. We all have them.

Watch Replays on TV Royale

Another last minute tip is to watch TV Royale. It has a list of replays from the most skilled and highest players in the world, or just exciting battles. This will help beginners get an idea of what works, what doesn’t, and how to be strategic rather than just stampeding forward. Watch card placement and other things to get better. Additionally, you’ll see decks that work. However, it takes practice so don’t be surprised if you get a deck from a top player and don’t win right away. Practice makes perfect.

Last but not least, Clash with Ash is a popular YouTuber who makes videos for Supercell. He offers a little of everything and has some helpful tips for beginners and more. Also watch videos from GamingWithMolt or Nickatnyte for troop ideas.

Once players learn to build a well-balanced deck is when they start winning. Always have a chest in the cycle to open once it’s available, and sign in every four hours to get a free chest to earn gold and upgrade cards.

Chests are extremely important, so open them as often as possible. Try to only spend Gold when it’s really needed, and on troops you’ll actually use. Then once you reach level 3 join a clan so other players can donate cards. You’ll also earn gold for donating, which in turn helps you upgrade your own cards faster too. Keep getting better and better, and you’ll start winning.

At the end of the day it’s all about strategy. Beating players a level or two higher than you isn’t impossible. It does take skill, time, and practice. Don’t get discouraged after losing 4-5 in a row. Before you know it you’ll be on a winning streak and have a full bar of chests ready to be opened. Good luck getting legendary cards, and enjoy.

    • anyonecanbecooln

      03/04/2016 at 1:22 am

      We need a specific number of cards to upgrade a card for example you need 2 cards to upgrade it to level 2 and 4 cards to make it level three and so on. the fraction denotes how many cards you have out of the needed number.

      You get Cards donated, which makes you upgrade them much faster, especially on high levels where you need 400 Cards or more for an upgrade. Also donating cards gives you Gold, 5 per common card donated and 50 per rare.
      And you can try out your decks in a friendly battle without losing trophies.
      As you can see it gives a lot of advantages.

    I disagree with you saying not to use all 2-3 elixir cost troops, i have been using a low elixir cost deck with great results. It’s all about strategy and how you use what you are given.

    my current deck is:
    Tombstone, archer, bomber, arrows, goblin barrel, spear goblin, minion, and skeletons.

      I disagree with u I use two 5 elixir, one 1 elixir, one 2 elixirs , one 7 elixir (u am changing that tho) two 3 elixir and one 4 and I think that’s right it works a treat

  9. Anon

    03/04/2016 at 6:01 pm

    Bomber is not bad paired with a giant or countering grouped troops. It has very large splash damage and deals damage very quickly, great for bounced up troops (like skeleton army) or goblin hut. It’s also very cheap. Arrows can kill skeleton army in a single hit, lol. I’ve been playing this game before global launch.

      Tanay, I know it says that Mini PEKKA is a Training Ground troop but the card can be found in Arena 1 and up. Just open any chests you get on the way and I’m sure you’ll find a Mini PEKKA eventually. (TBH: I prefer Mini Pekka over the Prince due to its lower cost and. :I just an opinion though. ^^)

      Yes, The chests will show which arena they have been won from, if you won a match in Arena 3, and you get a chest from it (It will say Arena3 below it) and drop to arena 2, you can still get Arena 3 cards from it.

      Agree: it’s based on trophies, so by default is appalling. It’s the same as the CoC “Attack” matching, but without an option to skip, so you end up facing all sorts. Totally random. Frankly the worst thing in the game, because SuperCell completely fails to understand gamer nature. :)

    Tip no 11: Level up quick and unlock ROyal Giant or Sparky. Both of these are overpowered toooo much!!! I hope at lest the royal giant gets nerfed in the next update. https://clashwiz.com/guides/counter-royal-giant-easily-clash-royale/

      Yes Sparky is a joke, and sadly the Royal Giant is still dominating. I’m trying to get into legendary arena, but face WAY too many Royal GG decks.

    If your elixir is already full, start your attack by deploying your troops from the back. To allow you to build up your troops while gaining elixir!

    The tips provided on this one really helped me out. However, let me tell you one stupid thing I did was to search for online generators to get unlimited hacks. I was convinced that i would really get some resources to defeat players. So, one of the hack tool that I tried actually installed a virus onto my android phone. So, don’t be stupid like me.

Samsung Galaxy Android 11 Update Info (2020)

Published

on

With the official Android 11 roll out from Google underway, we want to take you through everything you should know right now Samsung’s plans for Galaxy phones and tablets.

In September, Google pushed its next operating system, Android 11, to Pixel users. That’s huge news for the Pixel community and it’s also big news for those who own other Android-powered devices. It means an official release is getting closer for those phones and tablets.

With Android 11 rolling out and Samsung’s Android 10 roll out slowing down, Galaxy smartphone and tablet users are starting to think about the future.

While some Android OEMs started talking about Android 11 months ago, Samsung remained silent. That changed after the launch of the Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung’s confirmed early Android 11 plans. And thanks to that information along with rumors and traditions, we can put together an overview for those of you curious about Android 11.

In this guide we’re going to take you through what you should know about Android 11 if you currently own, or if you’re planning to buy a Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, or another Galaxy device.

We’ll take you through what we know about Samsung’s version of Android 11. We’ll take you through what we know about the release date and we’ll outline which devices will get an upgrade to the new version of Android.

Try Starz or HBO Free with Amazon Channels

Let’s start with what’s coming out before the official version of Android 11. Samsung is still rolling out Android 10 updates and it’s also pushing monthly updates to its stable of Galaxy phones and tablets.

Samsung Galaxy September Update

Samsung’s September update is pushing out right now.

The update is rolling out to the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy A70, Galaxy A50, Galaxy A21s, Galaxy M01s, Galaxy M31, Galaxy Tab S5e, Galaxy Tab Active Pro, and Galaxy Tab S6 and you can expect it to hit more devices in the near future.

The company’s September update includes a ton of patches including 15 fixes that are for issues related to Samsung’s own software.

If you own a Galaxy Tab S6, your upgrade should include software features from the new Galaxy Tab S7. Namely, Wireless DeX and the ability to request Wi-Fi passwords from people on your network if they’re in your contacts list.

If you want to learn more about Samsung’s September security update, head on over to the company’s website.

As a reminder, here’s the current breakdown of Samsung’s current Android security update coverage:

Current Models for Monthly Security Updates

  • Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Z Fold2, Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G
  • Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
  • Galaxy Note8, Galaxy Note9, Galaxy Note10, Galaxy Note10 5G, Galaxy Note10+, Galaxy Note10+ 5G, Galaxy Note10 Lite, Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Note20 5G, Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G
  • Enterprise Models: Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A50, Galaxy XCover4s, Galaxy XCover FieldPro, Galaxy XCover Pro

Current Models for Quarterly Security Updates

  • Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8 Active
  • Galaxy A2 Core, Galaxy A5 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2018), Galaxy A8s, Galaxy A9 (2018)
  • Galaxy A10, Galaxy A10e, Galaxy A10s, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A20e, Galaxy A20s, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A30s, Galaxy A40, Galaxy A50s, Galaxy A60, Galaxy A70, Galaxy A70s, Galaxy A80, Galaxy A90 5G
  • Galaxy A01, Galaxy A01 Core, Galaxy A11, Galaxy A21, Galaxy A21s, Galaxy A31, Galaxy A41, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A71 5G
  • Galaxy J4+, Galaxy J4 Core, Galaxy J6+
  • Galaxy M10, Galaxy M10s, Galaxy M20, Galaxy M30, Galaxy M30s, Galaxy M40
  • Galaxy M01, Galaxy M11, Galaxy M21, Galaxy M31, Galaxy M31s, Galaxy M51
  • Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019), Galaxy Tab A 8 (2019), Galaxy Tab A 8 Plus (2019), Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020), Galaxy Tab A7, Galaxy Tab Active2, Galaxy Tab Active Pro
  • Galaxy Tab S5e, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S6 5G, Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S7+, Galaxy View2
  • W20 5G

Current Models for Other Regular Security Updates

  • Galaxy S8 Lite, Galaxy Note FE
  • Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A6, Galaxy A6+, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A8+ (2018), Galaxy A8 Star
  • Galaxy J2 Core, Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J3 Pop, Galaxy J3 Top, Galaxy J4, Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy J5 Prime, Galaxy J6, Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Duo, Galaxy J7 Prime, Galaxy J7 Prime2, Galaxy J7 Pop, Galaxy J7 Top, Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy J7 Neo, Galaxy J7+, Galaxy J8
  • Galaxy Tab A (2017), Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018), Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy Tab S4, Galaxy Tab E 8 Refresh

So while devices like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 probably won’t get Android 11, they will get security patches and bug fixes for the foreseeable future.

The company’s pushed One UI 2.1, the interface that arrived on board the Galaxy S20 series, to a number of devices including the Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S5e, Galaxy Tab S4, Galaxy A51, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy M01s, and Galaxy M31.

These updates brought a variety of changes including:

  • Quick Share
  • Music Share
  • Single Take
  • AR Zone
  • Pro Video Recording

That said, the One UI 2.1 update for older devices was missing at least one feature that’s present on Galaxy S20 models: Bixby Routines.

The company’s also released another version of One UI, dubbed One UI 2.5, that brings a number of improvements to Galaxy devices. The software debuted on board the Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung is pushing One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 Lite, and Galaxy Tab S6 with more releases on the way.

The company is also planning to bring One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, and Galaxy Fold. It’s unclear when these updates will roll out.

One UI 2.5 is a fairly minor update, but it does bring a few notable changes including the ability for your device to remember the angle you used for your last selfie.

The camera app will also remember the last shooting mode you used (video, etc). There’s also support for full-screen navigation gestures in third-party launchers.

Samsung Galaxy Android 11: What’s New

Samsung’s version of Android 11 will look a lot different than the version Google releases for Pixel devices because it will utilize the company’s new One UI 3.0 user interface.

While we have some information, we don’t have the full picture because Samsung’s version of Android 11 is still in development. That said, it should bring a lot of Google’s features with it.

Google’s version of Android 11 includes features like:

  • Improved Quick Replies.
  • Mute notification sounds & vibrations during video capture recording.
  • Chat Bubbles.
  • Native Screen Recording.
  • Bluetooth improvements for headphones.
  • Memory Input/Output improvements.
  • Biometric Authentication Strength
  • Low Latency support.
  • Variable refresh rates.
  • Resume on Reboot.
  • And a whole lot more.

You can learn more about Android 11 on Google’s website.

As for Samsung’s version of Android 11 with One UI 3.0, we now have a full change log thanks to the company’s beta program.

As expected, the software is loaded up with changes. Here’s the first Galaxy Android 11/One UI 3.0 change log from the beta, courtesy of XDA-Developers:

  • New actions have been added, including talking to Bixby and accessibility actions.
  • You can add a customized icon for each routine and add routines to the Lock screen for quick access.

The software is a work in progress and there’s always a chance Samsung adds, or subtracts, features from this list as the beta progresses.

For instance, Google’s smart home controls are reportedly missing from the pre-beta software, but we could see them added into the final version of the software. Time will tell.

Samsung’s also working on the software that will power the upcoming Galaxy S21 series. The firmware was, as expected, is based on Android 11.

We don’t know what the software will look like, but the devices will almost certainly be powered by a new version of One UI, probably dubbed One UI 3.1.

These Galaxy Devices Will Get Android 11

Samsung typically keeps devices updated with major Android software updates for two years. Fortunately, it looks like the company will change this policy for Android 11.

The company says it’s committed to providing three years of major software upgrades going forward. This is obviously a huge development.

Initially it looked like this might only apply to higher profile devices, but according to Samsung, lengthier support will also be extended to other devices.

Here’s the full list:

  • Galaxy S series: Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20 in addition to Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 Lite and upcoming S series devices.
  • Galaxy Note series: Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 5G, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 10 5G, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10 Lite and upcoming Note series devices.
  • Galaxy Foldable devices: Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Fold 5G, Galaxy Fold and upcoming Z series devices
  • Galaxy A series: Galaxy A71 5G, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A90 5G and select upcoming A series devices.
  • Tablets: Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, Galaxy Tab S7+, Galaxy Tab S7 5G, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S6 5G, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and upcoming Tab S series devices.

As for Android 11, Popular phones like the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S10Galaxy S10+Galaxy S10e, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Note 10 are shoo-ins. The Galaxy Note 20 will make the move to Android 11 as well.

As for the company’s tablets, the Galaxy Tab S6 and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) will get upgraded to Android 11. You can also expect the new Galaxy Tab S7 to get upgraded as well.

Mid-range phones and tablets from 2019 should also move from Android 10 to Android 11.

These Galaxy Devices Might Not Get Android 11

Any Galaxy device that’s not on that list is currently on the fence when it comes to Android 11. That means popular devices like the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series are very much in danger of getting left behind on Android 10.

Here are a few Samsung Galaxy devices that could stick around on Android 10:

  • Galaxy S9
  • Galaxy S9+
  • Galaxy Note 9
  • Galaxy A9 (2018)
  • Galaxy A8 (2018)
  • Galaxy A8+ (2018)
  • Galaxy A7 (2018)
  • Galaxy A6 (2018)
  • Galaxy A6+ (2018)
  • Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018)

Older models like Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 probably won’t get upgraded to Android 11 either. Neither device has been upgraded to Android 10.

Samsung Galaxy Android 11 Beta

Google’s Android 11 beta included the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, and the Pixel 4a.

Other companies that took part in the Android 11 beta included OnePlus (OnePlus 8 series), Xiomi (Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and the POCO F2 Pro), and OPPO (Find X2 and Find X2 Pro).

As for Samsung, it will host its own Android 11 beta for Galaxy devices.

The company has launched its Android 11 beta program. The program has started in the pre-release phase which requires users to register to become a Samsung developer partner. You can do that over on its website.

Samsung’s Android 11 pre-beta is limited to Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra models in South Korea and the United States, but the company will open the beta up to users in China, Germany, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom once the pre-beta process ends.

As for the start of the public Android 11 beta, it looks like it could happen soon. An update for the company’s Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable app includes support for Android 11.

Samsung used to keep its Android betas exclusive to its Galaxy S flagship models. In 2016, the Android Nougat beta was exclusive to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users. In 2017, Samsung limited the Android Oreo beta to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

It took a different approach with Android Pie. Instead of keeping it limited to Galaxy S flagships, Samsung expanded the Android Pie/One UI beta to former flagships and mid-range devices. The Android 10 beta reverted back to the old days with a far more limited release.

While we don’t know how the Android 11 beta will work exactly, you can expect the Galaxy Note 20 to take part at some point. We also expect to see a release for Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 models down the road.

For more on the Samsung Galaxy Android 11 beta program, take a look at our guide.

Samsung Galaxy Android 11 Release Date

So when will Samsung release its first Android 11 update? Let’s start with what we know.

Now that the Galaxy Android 11 beta program is live, we know that the company is hard at work on updates for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra.

The Galaxy S20+ Android 11 update recently appeared in a benchmark on HTML5test which is a sign that testing is underway behind the scenes. The device being tested was running the company’s unreleased Samsung Internet 13.0.

The company is reportedly testing Android 11 on the Galaxy S10+. Earlier this year the device showed up in a Geekbench benchmark.

Last year, Samsung pushed its first public Android 10 beta in October, or, several weeks after Google pushed the official version of Android 10 to Pixel devices. With the official version of Android 11 out for Pixel devices, the public beta is getting close.

Samsung says the Galaxy S20 series will be the first to Android 11 and we expect the Galaxy Note 20 series to follow closely behind. These devices will followed by older models like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10.

And while a lot of Galaxy models will probably get Android 11 in the second half 2020, many others will have to wait until 2021. Samsung’s Android roll outs typically span across several months.

We’ll continue to update this post with new information as the year goes on so make sure to check back in with us.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Wait for Even Better Performance

Wait for Even Better Performance

You can expect the Galaxy S21 series to build on the foundation left by the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Note 20 series

A sketchy report out of China claims Samsung will utilize the Snapdragon 865 inside the Galaxy S21 to keep the price down. 

That said, there's also a chance the Galaxy S21 makes the jump to Qualcomm's rumored Snapdragon 875 processor. If true, that should lead to notable improvements in overall speed, multitasking, and battery life. 

91Mobiles has released potential information about Qualcomm's new processor. It will supposedly include a new X60 5G modem and an Adreno 660 graphics processor.

Unfortunately, the report doesn't shed any light on how much it'll improve upon the Snapdragon 865. We probably won't get those details until much later this year.

Another processor rumor hints at a new Exynos 1000 processor for the upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra and an Exynos 991 or or Exynos 992 for the cheapest Galaxy S21 model.

The Exynos 1000 is reportedly codenamed "Olympus" and the "Exynos 1000" moniker is currently a tenative name. 

Leaker Ice Universe says the Exynos 1000 will still "lose" to the Snapdragon 875, he says power consumption should be improved. 

The company is also reportedly thinking about ditching the Exynos name for its in-house processors.  

The Galaxy S20's 120Hz screens are extremely smooth, but they can drain battery life and the hope is that Samsung's improvements to next year's models will help tone that down. The Galaxy S20 represents Samsung's first stab at the technology. 

The Galaxy S20's 5G connectivity can also have a heavy impact on battery life and bringing a new modem aboard the Galaxy S21 could help counteract that.

As for the size of the Galaxy S21's battery, Samsung-centric blog Galaxy Club has spotted information about its size. 

The information points to a 4,660mAh capacity battery. The Galaxy S20's battery is rated at 4,370mAh so this would represent a small bump. 

The same site has also leaked the Galaxy S20 Ultra's battery capacity. According to Galaxy Club, the Galaxy S21 Ultra battery is rated at 4,885 mAh which means it could be marketed as 5,000 mAh.

So if you want a high-end Galaxy phone, but think you might want a little more polish, consider hanging around for next year's flagships.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Published

on

While you might have your sights on the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy S10 series, the Galaxy Note 10 series, or another device, some of you might want to think about holding out for the Samsung Galaxy S21/Samsung Galaxy S30.

The Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra are the company’s current flagships and they’re certainly worth of consideration if you’re on the hunt for a new smartphone in 2020.

If you’re looking to stay in the Galaxy family, you’ll also want to check out Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ from last year. They’re dependable devices and they’re much cheaper than they once were.

Outside of the Galaxy family you’ll want to take note of devices like Apple’s flagship iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. They’re excellent alternatives to Samsung’s top names.

If you’d prefer to stick with Android, make sure you look into the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro and Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL as well.

You’ll also want to take note of some of the phones that will arrive later this year. The list includes the 5G-powered iPhone 12 and the Google Pixel 5.

We’re also hearing about the phones coming in 2021. We’ve heard a lot about Apple’s iPhone 13 and we’ve also heard about the Samsung’s Galaxy S20’s successors.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Rumors

According to one leaker, the next Galaxy S is dubbed “Project U” behind the scenes. Presumably called Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30, the new models will almost certainly take the popular Galaxy S series to greater heights with improved hardware and software.

According to Samsung-centric blog SamMobile, Samsung is developing three versions of the Galaxy S21 which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that that’s been the company’s formula for a couple of years now.

The models in development are reportedly dubbed SM-G991, SM-G996, and SM-G998. These likely correspond to the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

One rumor suggests Samsung will stop selling phones with a bundled charger as soon as next year in an effort to keep costs down. Apple is reportedly doing the same with the iPhone this year.

Another rumor suggests Samsung is currently testing screen sizes for the largest Galaxy S21 model with 6.911″, 7.076″, and 7.095″ supposedly under consideration right now.

While the Galaxy Note 20 is built out of “glasstic,” one leaker claims the smallest Galaxy S21 is not made out of the material, at least not yet.

One report claims Samsung will bring the Galaxy Note’s S Pen stylus to the Galaxy S line starting with the Galaxy S21 Ultra model.

Ice Universe, a respected leaker, says that while the S Pen might come to the Galaxy S21, it won’t prevent Samsung from releasing a Galaxy Note 21.

Another leaker says the Galaxy S21 won’t take a significant leap from the Galaxy S20 series. He says the devices are more like “S20.5” or “S20s.” Galaxy S20 sales numbers haven’t been great so it’ll be interesting to see if that plan sticks.

We’ve seen a steady stream of Galaxy S21 rumors and that means we can start to piece together some expectations. From there, we can help you make a decision about whether to buy a new phone now or take a wait and see approach as we push deeper into the year.

The Galaxy S21 release date is months away and many of you can’t or simply won’t want to wait until 2021 to upgrade. That said, the Galaxy S21 should definitely be on your radar if you’re planning to upgrade your phone later in the year.

Samsung Galaxy Android 10: What’s New

Samsung’s version of Android 10 looks a lot different than Google’s version because it utilizes the company’s One UI user interface.

Try Starz or HBO Free with Amazon Channels

The company’s developed multiple versions of the One UI. The first, One UI 2.0, is on board all of Samsung’s Android 10 updates. Some of the highlights on board include:

  • A new streamlined design.
  • Enhanced Dark Mode.
  • Improvements to Device Care.
  • Enhanced Biometrics.
  • New features for One-handed Mode.
  • Full screen gestures.
  • Improvements to apps like Calendar, Reminder, and My Files.
  • DeX for PC. (Galaxy S9 & Galaxy Note 9).

Samsung’s also released Good Lock 2020 with Android 10 support. The customization app includes support for Dark Mode.

Samsung’s version of Android 10 also sports features from Google’s version of Android 10 including Focus Mode and improvements to Digital Wellbeing. Others include:

  • Improved Privacy Protection & Controls
  • Privacy Manager
  • Expanded Location Controls
  • Multi-Tasking Bubbles
  • Support for Foldable Displays
  • Sharing Shortcuts
  • Smart Reply, Suggested Actions

  • Notification Assistant
  • Improved Peer-to-Peer and Internet Connectivity
  • Wi-Fi Performance Mode
  • Dynamic Depth Formats for Photos
  • New Audio and Video Codecs
  • Native MIDI APIs
  • Improved Vulkan Graphics & Neural Network APIs

If you’re curious about Google’s Android 10 features, we recommend checking out our walkthrough. It’ll take you through all the key changes.

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series debuted with Android 10 and a new version One UI, dubbed One UI 2.1, on board.

Samsung’s pushed the One UI 2.1 out to the Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy Note 10 series. This means these devices now have official access to Galaxy S20 software features like Single Take and Pro Mode for Video.

One UI 2.1 has also rolled out to the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S5e, Galaxy Tab S4, Galaxy A71, and Galaxy A51. It’s also pushing out to the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9.

The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 One UI 2.1 updates bring a variety of changes including:

  • Quick Share
  • Music Share
  • Single Take
  • AR Zone
  • Pro Video Recording

The One UI 2.1 update for older devices is missing at least one feature that’s present on Galaxy S20 models: Bixby Routines.

On top of that, the company has released a new version of One UI, dubbed One UI 2.5, that brings several improvements to Galaxy devices. The software debuted on board the new Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung is pushing One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Tab S6.

The company is also planning to bring One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, and Galaxy Fold. It’s unclear when these updates will roll out.

One UI 2.5 is a minor update, but it does bring a few notable changes including the ability for your device to remember the angle you used for your last selfie.

The camera app will also remember the last shooting mode you used (video, etc). There’s also support for full-screen navigation gestures in third-party launchers.

These Galaxy Devices Will Get Android 10

Samsung typically keeps devices updated with major Android software updates for two years. That’s changing as the company says it’s now committed to providing three years of major software upgrades going forward.

Initially it looked like this might only apply to higher profile devices, but lengthier support will also be extended to a number of other devices.

Here’s the full list directly from Samsung:

  • Galaxy S series: Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20 in addition to Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 Lite and upcoming S series devices.
  • Galaxy Note series: Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 5G, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 10 5G, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10 Lite and upcoming Note series devices.

  • Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018)

These Galaxy Devices Probably Won’t Get Android 10

Any device that’s received two major software updates (Oreo and Pie) is currently on the fence when it comes to Android 10. This means popular devices like the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 will most likely get left behind on Android Pie.

Here are a few Samsung Galaxy devices that will probably stick around on Android Pie:

The Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8+ aren’t listed on Samsung’s Android 10 roadmaps.

The Galaxy S8 has appeared in a GeekBench benchmark showing Android 10 on board, but this doesn’t confirm a release for the aging device.

In fact, it looks like the Galaxy S8 in question was running the LineageOS custom ROM. An official Android 10 update for the Galaxy S8 series is reportedly not in development at this time.

Samsung customer service reps have repeatedly told disgruntled Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 users that their devices will get upgraded to Android 10 down the road, but Samsung reps are extremely unreliable.

Samsung itself has reportedly confirmed plans to leave these devices behind on Android Pie so barring a change of heart, these devices won’t get an official version of Android 10.

Older devices like Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge probably won’t get upgraded to Android 10 either. Neither device received an upgrade to Android Pie.

Samsung Galaxy Android 11 Update

Google’s released the official version of Android 11 and Samsung is currently working on its own version of the update.

As for Samsung, the company has confirmed the start of its Android 11 beta program. The program is currently in the pre-release phase which requires users to register to become a Samsung developer partner.

Samsung’s Android 11 pre-beta is limited to Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra models in South Korea and the United States, but the open beta will expand to users in China, Germany, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

The company is testing Android 11 on the Galaxy S10+. The device showed up in a Geekbench benchmark with Android 11 on board earlier this year.

Look for the Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, and the Galaxy S10 series to take part in the Android 11 beta at some point down the road.

Also of note: Samsung’s version of Android 11 has the company’s new One UI 3.0 on board. We initially thought One UI 3 would arrive alongside the Galaxy S21 next year, but Samsung will issue it with its first batch of Android 11 updates. We now expect One UI 3.1 to roll out alongside the Galaxy S21 series.

We don’t expect the official release for Galaxy devices anytime soon, but users should keep an eye out for more information as we push deeper into the year.

While you wait, have a look at our early guide to Samsung’s Galaxy Android 11 release. We’ve also put together a guide to Samsung’s Android 11 beta.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Wait for Even Better Performance

Wait for Even Better Performance

You can expect the Galaxy S21 series to build on the foundation left by the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Note 20 series

A sketchy report out of China claims Samsung will utilize the Snapdragon 865 inside the Galaxy S21 to keep the price down. 

That said, there's also a chance the Galaxy S21 makes the jump to Qualcomm's rumored Snapdragon 875 processor. If true, that should lead to notable improvements in overall speed, multitasking, and battery life. 

91Mobiles has released potential information about Qualcomm's new processor. It will supposedly include a new X60 5G modem and an Adreno 660 graphics processor.

Unfortunately, the report doesn't shed any light on how much it'll improve upon the Snapdragon 865. We probably won't get those details until much later this year.

Another processor rumor hints at a new Exynos 1000 processor for the upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra and an Exynos 991 or or Exynos 992 for the cheapest Galaxy S21 model.

The Exynos 1000 is reportedly codenamed "Olympus" and the "Exynos 1000" moniker is currently a tenative name. 

Leaker Ice Universe says the Exynos 1000 will still "lose" to the Snapdragon 875, he says power consumption should be improved. 

The company is also reportedly thinking about ditching the Exynos name for its in-house processors.  

The Galaxy S20's 120Hz screens are extremely smooth, but they can drain battery life and the hope is that Samsung's improvements to next year's models will help tone that down. The Galaxy S20 represents Samsung's first stab at the technology. 

The Galaxy S20's 5G connectivity can also have a heavy impact on battery life and bringing a new modem aboard the Galaxy S21 could help counteract that.

As for the size of the Galaxy S21's battery, Samsung-centric blog Galaxy Club has spotted information about its size. 

The information points to a 4,660mAh capacity battery. The Galaxy S20's battery is rated at 4,370mAh so this would represent a small bump. 

The same site has also leaked the Galaxy S20 Ultra's battery capacity. According to Galaxy Club, the Galaxy S21 Ultra battery is rated at 4,885 mAh which means it could be marketed as 5,000 mAh.

So if you want a high-end Galaxy phone, but think you might want a little more polish, consider hanging around for next year's flagships.

Published

on

Samsung’s confirmed its Android 11 beta program and it’s running it a little bit different than it has in past years.

After staying silent for several months, Samsung’s finally talking about its plans for Android 11.

The company has confirmed an Android 11 beta program for Galaxy devices and the confirmation came a lot earlier than usual. Samsung typically announces its plans after Google’s pushed the official version of its new operating system to Pixel devices. This year, the company’s revealed its plans ahead the official Android 11 release.

Samsung’s Android 11 beta program allows you try out Android 11 features and the company’s brand new One UI 3.0 interface. You’ll also be able to help Samsung squash bugs and performance issues before it releases the official firmware. The company also says beta testers will be able to provide suggestions about the new UX.

Samsung hasn’t confirmed all of the pertinent information yet, but we can give you a rough outline based on official info, traditions, and our own expectations.

In this guide we’ll take you through everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy Android 11/One UI 3 beta. Our walkthrough includes information about the beta’s release date, regions, the signup, and more.

Samsung Android 11 Pre-Beta

This year, Samsung’s launched a pre-beta phase for developers. The company says this phase will “help ensure application store applications are compatible with the beta software before the public beta period.”

This isn’t an open beta that’s available to all users. Instead, Samsung says it’s limited to partner developers that want to perform compatibility testing with specific service providers and device models.

How to Signup for the Android 11 Pre-Beta

In order to participate in the pre-beta process, you’ll need to apply to become a Samsung partner developer.

If you’re interested in becoming a partner developer, you can submit an application on Samsung’s beta site. Scroll down to the bottom and click on “Apply for Partnership” and follow the instructions.

Samsung says it will get back to applicants within 5 business days after applying.

If your application is approved, you’ll be able to learn about the installation through the “ONE UI BETA FOR PARTNER” tab on the company’s beta page.

Samsung Android 11 Pre-Beta Devices

Samsung’s Android 11 pre-beta phase is limited to specific Galaxy devices.

As of right now, the company is focused on the Galaxy S20 series which includes the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra LTE/5G.

It’s unclear if other devices will join the Galaxy S20 series in the pre-beta process, but at this point, you shouldn’t hold your breath.

Samsung Android 11 Pre-Beta Regions & Carriers

The pre-beta is limited to two regions.

Developer partners in South Korea and the United States can take part in the pre-beta phase. And in order to join, you’ll need to own an unlocked Galaxy S20 model or a model tied to a specific carrier.

In the United States, you’ll need a Galaxy S20 model attached to Sprint or T-Mobile. In South Korea, you’ll need a device that works with KT, LGU+, or SKT.

Samsung Android 11 Public Beta

Samsung’s started with a pre-beta phase, but at some point it will open up the Android 11 beta to the public. If you can’t participate in the pre-beta process, you’ll be able to take part in the public beta whenever it becomes available.

The company hasn’t said how long the pre-beta process will last, but it looks like the Android 11/One UI 3 beta might open up to the general public in the near future.

An update for the company’s Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable app includes support for Android 11 and that means we could see a public release soon.

Like the pre-beta, the public beta will be limited in scope. The public beta will be available to users in China, Germany, India, Poland, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

While the company might start with the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra, there’s a good chance the public beta expands to other devices.

It probably won’t open up to the company’s entire portfolio of devices, bu you can expect the Galaxy Note 20 to take part at some point. We also expect a release for Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 models down the road.

For more about Android 11, head on over to our walkthrough.

Android 11 Problems: 5 Things You Need to Know

Published

on

Google’s Android 11 is out of beta and available for Google’s Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, and Pixel 4a. The operating system went through extensive testing, but issues have slipped through the cracks into the final release.

After a fairly lengthy wait, Android 11 is finally live for Pixel devices. The update is pretty extensive and comes with a long list of changes including built-in screen recording, improved notifications, and a variety of under-the-hood improvements.

While some Pixel owners should install the Android 11 update right now, others might benefit from waiting.

Try Starz or HBO Free with Amazon Channels

Android 11 has been out for a short time, but we’re already hearing and seeing complaints about bugs and performance issues. Some of these issues are brand new, some have carried over from Android 10.

If you’re thinking about downloading the Android 11 update on your Pixel, you should be familiar with these issues before you tap download.

In this guide we’ll take you through the current state of Android 11 problems. We’ll also provide you with some potential fixes, show you where to find feedback about the Android 11 update, show you where to report bugs, and tell you about what’s coming next from Google.

Prepare for Android 11

You might be tempted to install Android 11 right now. However, before you tap download, make sure you prepare yourself, and your device, for the move up from Android 10.

You can’t predict exactly how Android 11 will run on your Pixel. Some of you might see a performance boost, others will run into bugs or performance issues. Preparing for the installation will help you cut down the number of potential issues you might encounter.

We’ve put together a guide that will take you through the pre-installation process we use before we install new Android software on our Pixel devices.

If you don’t have a ton of time to devote to the pre-installation process, you’ll want to make sure all of your files are all properly backed up.

Data loss issues are rare these days, but this is still an important step to take before you make the transition from Android 10 to Android 11.

Pixel Android 11 Problems

The beta squashed a number of bugs and performance issues ahead of the public release, but the final version of Android 11 is causing problems for some Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4 users.

Some Pixel users are running into installation issues. If you’re experiencing issues with the Android 11 installation process, take a look at our guide.

Pixel users are also complaining about a variety of other problems including connectivity issues, abnormal battery drain, touchscreen issues, UI lag, sound issues, and more.

It’s a short list, but we expect the list to grow as more people download and install the new operating system.

Where to Find Feedback & Report Problems

We’ll start to see more feedback about the Android 11 update on sites like Twitter and YouTube.

You’ll also find useful Android 11 feedback on Google’s Pixel Help Forums and sites like XDA-Developers.

Short-term feedback is extremely useful, but you’ll also want to make sure you dig into long-term feedback from Android 11 users if you’re feeling leery about the move to the operating system.

If you do run into an Android 11-related issue on your Pixel you’ll want to report your issue to Google. You can do so via the company’s website or via the Pixel Help Forums.

How to Fix Pixel Android 11 Problems

If encounter problems on your Pixel you can’t rely on Google to fix them. New Android 11 builds won’t come every week and every new release will have its own set of problems.

If you encounter a bug or performance issue, you’ll want to try fixing it on your own before getting in touch with Google’s customer service.

We’ve put together guides that will take you through the most common issues impacting the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4. You can start there.

If you’re unable to find a fix for your problem there, you’ll want to take a look at Google’s Pixel help forum or XDA’s Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4a forums.

What’s Next

We haven’t heard anything about Android 11.1 yet. And given that Google failed to release Android 10.1, there’s a chance we don’t get a big maintenance update in 2020 or 2021.

The only Android 11 updates on our radar right now are Google’s monthly updates. These updates always bring new security patches and bug patches. And that means the first batch of bug fixes for Android 11 issues could roll out in October.

We expect Google’s October Android 11 update to roll out early next month. The company almost always rolls its monthly updates out on the first Monday.

If you’re dealing with Android 11 issues keep your eyes out for it.
