We received the update on our Galaxy Note 10 Plus review unit and while it doesn’t add any functionality this month, to have the security patch so fast is great. The news that the over-year-old Note 9 also getting the patch is an excellent bonus.

It comes the same week that Samsung seemingly pushed the official Android 10 update to the S10 line up, hinting that the Korean tech giant is getting better at timely software updates. Its phones are always top notch but usually suffer from slow update cycles – this looks to be changing.

The Note 10 Plus was one of our favourite phones of 2019 and if the timely updates keep coming it’ll remain one of our top smartphone picks well into 2020.
