We recommend updating your phone's software whenever it is available to make sure your phone stays in tip-top shape.

Even if we offer the possibility to our customer to check manually for a software update, see this possibility as a luxury, as an extra safety to help our customers. If an update is available, you will receive a special notification.

An Android update is approved by the manufacturer first. Once Samsung approves it, it is sent to the carriers. Each carrier customizes, modifies and releases their own version of Android. In some instances, they may never release an update. This results in customers with the same manufactured devices having different versions of Android. Please contact your carrier for Android update questions.
