Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+ update brings manual Night Mode to Sprint users
Samsung quietly updated its most recent flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ with new camera features. These change have been pushed out along with the May/June security patches, and although we're at the end of July, many users have yet to receive the improvements.

In the United States, AT&T and Verizon have already released the June security update, which includes the new Night Mode function, as well as the QR Code scanner for Wi-Fi sharing. If you've bought your Galaxy S10/S10+ from Sprint, you're in luck, as the carrier is now rolling out the same update that the other two network operators have already released.

Spotted by TizenHelp, the update weighs in at 510MB, so it would be better download it via Wi-Fi network. There's no mention of any new features in the changelog, but at that size, we can safely assume the Night Mode and QR Code scanner are included in the update alongside the June security patch.

Sprint Galaxy S10+ owners should be looking for the new firmware version G975USQU2ASG8, which should bring the camera and security improvements mentioned.

This is the reason why I buy unlocked phones. Phone companies should not have control over your updates.

The only problem with that, unlocked Samsungs receive updates last. Atleast my Note 9 does:)

I had got my night mode in the middle of May. My sister haves the S9 and receives her updates last also. I think they send them to the unlocked S10's first then 9's and last the 8's

Do you have the Snapdragon S10? You should have got it by now

My question is if you buy the Exynos variant of the S10 even though you are on a U.S. carrier, do you still receive updates faster?
