Got a linky link? or details of where you got it?

Does it have a lip that prevents the screen from coming into contact with a surface when placed screen down?

A few of us at work ordered it online from spigen.com as we have A50s. I have attached a pic so you can see. Very good looking case and protection is amazing. I used spigen on all my phones since the galaxy S2

I experienced the GPS issue for the first time on Saturday. Google maps was basically stuck. I had to restart the phone & it was fine after that.

My A30 received an update yesterday. It was about 450mb.It mentioned camera improvements & June security patch.

It feels a little snappier & fingerprint sensor seems faster. Hopefully the gps issue is sorted.

The fine print reads 36 months. It's actually not a good price at all considering you are binding yourself for 3 years.

The cost overall is just over R16k on contract and the phone retails for R11 800 on takealot.
No ****. Hence I said "hard pass".

ok i was worried that my ad blocker might be the cause...

Doesnt look like this is a carrier issue but rather samsung not pushing the updates to the various countries.

Obviously india is their main concern as they are competing with Xiaomi that puts out updates regularly...

I'll see if i can reach out to samsung and post the response here

My thoughts exactly

I followed up by asking why, security updates aside, are they pushing updates that include camera and fingerprint scanner enhancements but not to all regions.

Lets wait and see
