It is best to use smartswitch or odin in service centre to update for glitch free experience atleast for major updates. 

I don't get any issues as I used to update via odin. Never used ota in a long time. ( 5 or 6 times in my 8years with Samsung devices)

It took almost 30min to download files. Then it started updating my device.

Update was completed. Device restarted and I got finished update notification. 

My 1st impressions 👇👇


Funny thing is smartswitch In laptop stuck at 0% even though update, reastart all completed in my mobile.

Waited for another 30min and force closed it using task manager.

I have this app called frija in my laptop from xda developers. It fetches latest software and downloads at high speed. For me it takes 2-4min with 50mbps BB connection. Sammobile is also trusted but speed is very slow and takes 4-5hrs to download.

Then I am better off with OTA/smart switch and samsung service center in case of issues with OTA update.

I haven't faced any issues with OTA update till now.

You can't flash manually in smartswitch. If you update through ota and you got issues nothing you can do with smartswitch.

I will visit service center. Better than using something which I know very little about.
