I wouldn't worry about that at all.
Updates can trash a phone... if the OS is fast, stable and fulfilling its mission, let it be!
ALWAYS redundantly backup your critical data to at least 2 hdds that are physically and electronically isolated from each other and the PC!!!


My N10+ hasn't been updated in almost 2 years.
The current load is over a year old, still fast and very stable with no issues. Security simply isn't an issue unless you do something stupid.
I'm running on Pie and never was forced to reload because of malware in 2 years... that's how secure an unpatched Android can be.

However even with a fully updated Android... there's no saving dumb bunnies🤣

Why people care so much about that update things?
What we need is a stable phone with everythings work. Not an updated phone but buggy software.
It's mostly hype. Google trying to scare you into upgrading to boost their market share numbers rather than what's best for you.

I'm sampling Android 10* right now. If it runs better than 9 and I find the work arounds I need, I'll upgrade the other Note to 10 as well.
I'd like identical twins🤣
No way they'll be updated to 11 though... it's a dog.


* How well it works also has a lot to do with how well Samsung wrote the firmware. I noticed at lot of new little apks to get around Android's lame swipe gestures and such. I still have my navigation buttons at the bottom on the new Note.
