I don’t know why I’m still surprised, (after the exact same experience every time on 2 different phones over 5 or 6 updates), but it’s always so baffling … Attempting to update through settings just hangs forever before crashing with some error message , and manual update starts downloading files and gets anywhere from 5 to 75 percent before freezing or crashing with some error message. If you keep trying over and over again, eventually after about 2 cumulative hours and a few gigs of wasted data, (yes it happens on WiFi too - I actually have better success on mobile data), it will just work all of a sudden, (or you can download the flash files and do it with the computer). I would think this would be high on the priority list if you’re hoping to keep this thing alive. It shouldn’t be such a nightmare to update.
(sorry - I know that is all a bit exaggerated … I’m just making a point . I guess I just have a fantasy about simply receiving a notification , tapping on download , watching some smooth and steady progress counter go from zero to a hundred , and tapping install. I’ve never had such an experience with SF. Anyway , I still like it better than anything else out there , so I’ll do it again next time… Thanks for the upkeep)
