Another year, another Samsung smartphone that isn’t quite using Android to its full potential. The new Galaxy S23 lineup is again not giving users access to seamless Android updates, a handy tool that limits how long your phone is out of action when you upgrade its OS.

At its recent Samsung Unpacked 2023 event, the company unveiled its new smartphone lineup: the Samsung Galaxy S23, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus, and the top-of-the-line Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. All three phones feature a new custom Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and upgraded 12MP selfie cameras, with the Ultra taking its main snapper to a whopping 200MP.
