For anyone that considers themself to be a big Android fan, the topic of fragmentation is one you've likely talked or read about at one point or another. The open-source nature of Android is what allows for such a wide variety of different phones, but it's also the reason why so many of them still aren't running Android 10 or are on outdated security patches.

Some companies are better about updating their devices than others, with the most popular Android manufacturer — Samsung — really stepping up to the plate lately to try and do better in these regards.

We sent Jerry Hildenbrand into the AC forums to conduct a little experiment, asking people with Samsung phones the following questions:

  • What model of Samsung phone do you have?
  • What country do you live in?
  • What version of Android is your phone running?
  • What's the date on your security patch?

Here's how some of our members responded:

Note 10+ unlocked on tmobile USA Android 10 /One UI 2.1 May 1 2020 security patch Knox ? Secure folder ? Samsung pay? Yes to those


Galaxy S10e on Verizon USA Android 10/One UI 2.1 April 1st 2020 Security Patch Not really?


Device: Galaxy S9 on (locked) AT&T. Location: USA Software: One UI 2 (Android 10) Security Patch: April 1, 2020. Knox: Not really. Only use PIN lock.


Galaxy S10 US/T-Mobile Android 10/One UI 2.1 April patch No Knox usage worth mentioning
