Good point, but an updated phone is more secure than staying with an outdated one, and normally the updates go smooth, so taking the risk normally pays off.
But this time:
- this is a major update, so it is riskier than usual
- many users reported a very bad state after the update, which is what specially worries me.
You are absolutely right that I could seek help on my surroundings, I’ll try as well, thanks.
