Each to there own mate ... We live in a democracy so patch or run on outdated os your choice
Life is moving faster and faster paced all the time and hacks and vulnerability are being exploited more and more each day
It's no longer a question of WILL I be hacked it's WHEN will I be hacked
Nobody on this forum will thank you for advising them to disable OTA when their bank account is emptied because they didn't apply security updates regularly
Back to the OP topic tho battery life is poor on the Fold3 and for me it's bad ebought that I might give up on Samsung's foldables and go back to candy bar fornat. I am old school, my first phones were Nokia 3xxx range with 5 to 7 days battery. I need 1 full days usage from my smartphone - and using out of the box settings - nothing else is acceptable for the huge money manufacturers charge these days .
Let's agree to disagree mate
I'm a pragmatist; I use what works best. Hype doesn't get the job done.
Redundant backup for everything, not just data.
My account$ are fully insured.
The user themselves are the most likely to load or download malware... weakest link.
Many don't even have their critical data backed up redundantly. Some data can't be replaced.
A constantly changing platform means malware is harder to spot by behavior. If I can't ID/correct a glitch, it means reload time, zero tolerance.
Not saying it's impossible to be compromised but it's highly likely unless you do something stupid.
A reload costs me about half a day to get back 100% unless the SD card gets hit too then add 4-6 hours to the reload.
Pie is high enough to stop the worst rootkits that require a reflash.
