Phone bought from Samsung
Sr. Member

I am curious about updates for phones that are bought from Samsung compared to phones bought from Verizon.

Is is true that if you bought it from Samsung you would get the update before a phone that was bought from Verizon?

Also what is the difference between software from a Verizon phone to a Samsung phone.

If you have a Verizon phone we are getting the Krack  patch starting today. If you got your phone from Samsung

when did you get this patch?

Re: Phone bought from Samsung

I haven't dug out the articles, but I seem to recall reading instances where the unlocked models from Samsung actually took longer to update from one OS version to the next OS version (like from Marshmallow to Nougat). Other models might be sooner. I don't know if there is a pattern or not.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
