Is it just me or is the Samsung approach to Beta access very limited and poor compared to other Manufacturers. Surely as a tech super power, you'll be able to include your customers in testing new and upcoming software versions. The members app registration is awful from a consumer level.

Anyone else agree?

I haven't had the option to Join. It's frustrating as I take my technology seriously but don't get chance to try out the new updates.

Must say I had no problem getting on the beta with my Note10+ - only had an issue with the Wear app which was updated soon after
I think the Beta was only available to unlocked ( ie non carrier specific ) phones which I can understand as some of the carriers put some of their own software on the phones they sell and could see that being a nightmare for Samsung to try and include all variants in Beta software

my post is referring to the overall experience accessing the beta, it's not as good as other companies, there's a lot of room for improvement

Hi - must admit for me it was fine
Have previously been on Apple Betas and have to say been a fairly similar experience with both Samsung and Apple - guess it prob varies for people depending on their circumstance

joining beta on your personal phone is not advised I really can't get my head around why people want to join it beta is mainly for developers etc and it's bug central litrally had a phone brick it's self from a beta update nothing I could do because I accepted the terms and conditions.
