Yes so iv'e read. Just hope it isn't the one that seemed to bricked some of the devices in Australia having the reports on the news and seeing it's caused a few people to lose all their data and photo's if you haven't back up anything. The advice by Samsung issued to them was to not do any further updates and carry out a factory reset! Until they release a fix. Oh' dear Samsung 🤔

That's the first I've held of that, and hopefully the battery life should improve.

Genuine thanks for the warning @keith30. A cautious data back up for this one maybe. I am sure the update released in the UK will be fine but you can never be 100% sure. 👍

whilst a bit  of a blunder in Australia, the Uk release should hopefully be fine.  I will stress the importance of backing up.   Some of the bug fixes detailed here:  https://www.sammyfans.com/2023/01/03/samsung-january-2023-update-patches-20-sves/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
