Samsung puts Galaxy S10 camera update on hold due to major issues

Samsung puts Galaxy S10 camera update on hold due to major issues
UPDATE: Samsung is now rolling out another update that should fix the issues that cause Galaxy S10 units to freeze. The changelog mentions improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity and stability, camera stability, Bluetooth connectivity and stability, as well as enhancements to security. 

We were quite excited to report last week that Samsung is improving the Galaxy S10's camera with a handful of improvements, but we didn't know the update will introduce many bugs that would make these phones almost unusable.

Apparently, many Galaxy S10 owners who installed the latest update reported that their phones have started to freeze and require a restart more often than not. Although these issues don't affect everyone with the Galaxy S10 device and the latest update, it looks like Samsung pulled the firmware software until it addresses the issues, SamMobile reports.

The problems that affect Galaxy S10 devices are weird indeed, as it's not just certain apps that are freezing, but the phone as well. Also, if you try to restart the phone and long pres the power button, the restart and power off buttons aren't usable, so you can't press either of them. Luckily, the phone will automatically restart after a few seconds if you bring up the restart options.

If you were waiting for that improved Night mode for the Galaxy S10 camera, you should congratulate yourself for not being able to download the update yet, since it appears to be broken. We have no ETA for the re-release of the camera-oriented update, but the issues affecting Galaxy S10 units seem quite serious, so we hope Samsung will find a way to address them.

How come everything in tech is never finished upon release anymore? Not even physical hardware. Just look at Apple and Samsung, the two biggest players out there. Apple still trying to solve their awful keyboard each year and Samsung releasing phones that isn’t ready. Yes iPhones too. No need to spill it out, bendgate which they needed one more year for. Is it because of our short attention-span 2019 this is what they have to do. Wow us fast and release even faster? Thanks to internet anything can be released in beta. It’s just sad that we keep spending so much money when nothing is ever finished. Miss the PlayStation 1 era..

Why so quiet here? just few months ago sammy fans were yelling in Apple news that Samsung OS updates are bug free because they take time with them. So what happened?
