A detail that caught our attention when installing the update is that Samsung does not yet implement the A / B update system or Uncomfortable updates introduced from Android 7, with the aim of significantly reducing the time that the installation process of a new version takes and eliminating the need to show the classic warning of "Optimize applications" before beginning.
