System Update to Samsung Galaxy Tab S

One fact which I have blogged about, is that I own a Google, Pixel C. But for many years I’ve also owned a Samsung Galaxy Tab S, First Generation.

On the Tab S, I’ve been running the original O/S. that being Android KitKat, until this morning, when I did a full System Update to Android 6.0.1 / Marshmallow.

Such an update takes time and can be nerve-racking, especially since the process installs a series of system updates, not one, because I’ve left it lagging behind for numerous years.

So now that tablet, too has an up-to-date Android version running on it.

But I’ve previewed Android 6.0.1, 7.0 and 7.0.1 already, because that’s what I’ve been installing on my newer tablet, and on my phone.

I’m happy it’s done with one more time.

Pixel C received a minor update yesterday.

Yesterday evening (July 10, 2017), my Pixel C tablet, running Stock Android 7.1.2, received an expected, minor update, bringing its security-patch level to July 5. There is one such patch for each month, typically associated with the 5th day, but actually released several days later.

While this patch did not seem to break anything, it also did not resolve This Bug.

Minor Android Update Tonight

My Samsung Galaxy S6 smart-phone runs Android 7.0, and received a minor system update tonight, which only required that 18MB of software be downloaded. The update completed quickly, but it will require some more, extensive use, before I can know whether the promised stability and security improvements are apparent.

I was never really dissatisfied with the phone’s stability.
