As far as core Android 11 changes are concerned, notifications are now more organized into three categories, chat bubbles make their debut, more strict privacy controls among many other changes and features.

With that being said, Samsung recently has been going all in to provide the latest Android 11 update to its phones, be it midrange or flagship. The software support is also much better than its rivals.

Take for instance the Galaxy S21 series, which has not missed out on any monthly or security patch update since its debut. Samsung is no longer the brand we used to remember — the one with lousy and slow update rollouts.

Even Samsung’s budget-oriented phones from the Galaxy A series have been well treated with software updates, and that too is on the path to get 3 major Android OS updates. Pretty nice!

All in all, the smartphone giant has improved a lot over the past couple of years especially in the software experience and support.
