Every day I get updates it's driving me nuts

Galaxy S21 Series

What is wrong with Samsung and Android that every single day since I've owned this phone(except for one day, I've had the phone about a week) I get updates.


Updates for Google play store.


Updates for Samsung galaxy store. 


Updates for Google services.


Updates for random Samsung apps I'll never use or don't even know what they are.

Updates for YouTube and Google apps.

Updates for EVERYTHING you can think of and more, every day. 


I've used almost 10gb of data on "updates" in the last week!!!!

This phone is driving me crazy and I regret purchasing it. This is just madness honestly. 

What makes it worse is this phone uses so much battery while I'm asleep and then STILL waits for me to use it when I wake up to install a dozen updates. At least do it while I'm not using the phone!! It's like Samsung thinks I'm impressed and wants me to see all the updates. No it's not impressive it makes me think I bought junk.


This is excessive.

I appreciate at first this can be irksome @Worstphoneever 

However updates are important and are pushed out by the app developers to improve stability , bug fixes and enhancements.

Other updates will be phone software updates and Security updates.

Have a look in your Playstore and Samsung Galaxy Store settings as you should be able to set to update over Wi-Fi only to save on your mobile data allowance.

Other update preferences I believe are available too.

When I first moved from iPhones to Samsung (android) I too was amazed to see the amount of updates that happen.

Now I'm accustomed to this.

I now check once a week manually for updates in the Playstore and Galaxy Store. This has cut down immensely on the amount of updates pushed to my phone as I'm usually ahead of the game on this.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.

I agree with you, I removed notification permissions from Google Play Store app just to give it rest.

I already have 24 updates waiting for me since putting them off auto update, since writing this post less than 2 days ago.


That's insane. Most of turn are Google, Samsung, and Android. 


Why did my previous xaiomi phone never have to bother me with literally dozens of updates ever 2 days. Everything worked fine on that phone.


I bought a pair of Samsung galaxy buds+ which just arrived in mail. More junk as it turns. Can't even pair with this s21. Literally don't even show up. All Samsung advice leads nowhere so I have to return them.


To not even be able to connect their own ear buds. Apple has never looked more tempting to me.
