Considering to buy the S10e or S10 to replace my HTC 10.

Is it possible to install Adaway on the S10?
If yes, is it difficult?

Or can you recommend another app similar to Adaway?

Thanks in advance.

Will I still receive the official updates from Samsung after I root the S10?

It's not a set back, just simply update manually downloading the software off www.sammobile.com and flash on odin when your software gets a bit outdated. That's what i do. You can always un-root to receive OTA updates to it on your phone. I'd just prefer go through the pain of updating manually every few months and enjoy root access than have no root but easy ota updates....

Another option: use dns.adguard.com in the Android "Private dns" setting. No root needed and a great set-and-forget option!
I have been using it for the last year on all my Android phones and tablets and it works great so far. It blocks most ads with very few issues.

I also use adguard dns servers in the home router dhcp settings for all devices at the home network:

Thank you for this. I have had nothing but rooted phones with Adaway for the longest time. And this new Galaxy phone has had me jump a couple times to full screen loud ads out of nowhere in some apps. The "private dns" trick works just like adaway. I even tried clicking on a google ad top of the page search result and it was blocked.
