The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Android 10 update went through a pretty lengthy beta process, but performance issues and bugs have slipped into the stable release.
Samsung’s Android 10 beta gave Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ users a chance to try out the update’s new features ahead of time. It also helped the company squash bugs and performance problems ahead of the official release.
In December, Samsung started pushing the official version of Android 10/One UI 2.0 to Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ users. It’s available in several regions right now and the software will hit more devices in more regions in early 2020.
Now Android 10 and One UI 2.0 have been out for a few weeks, Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ users are relaying feedback about the update.
A lot of the feedback has been good, but we’ve also seen complaints about issues. Some of them are brand new, others have carried over from the Android 10 beta and Android Pie.
With that in mind, we want to guide you through the current state of Galaxy Note 10 Android 10 problems. We’ll take you through the best way to prepare for your Android 10 update, provide you with some resources that could help if you run into problems, and tell you about Samsung’s plans for the future.
