He who waits with prudence
He will be rewarded in due time
Now the wait is over
Lend your ear to a legend
The long awaited, indeed hotly anticipated /e/ OS ‘Q’ upgrade AOSP Android 10 for the Galaxy S9+ ‘star2lte’ has been released as ‘dev’ release e-0.13-q-20210120 and has been downloadable to the general public since January, 25 2021.
I was able to manually install it fresh & clean via TWRP Recovery 3.5.0_9-0 with Samsung Firmware Android 10, build date Deember. 2020. A custom eRecovery recovery-e-0.13-q-20210120 is also available. My first impressions correspond to those of the S9 'starlte’.
The disadvantage of a Quad HD+ 2960x1440 pixel display resolution becomes apparent during the initial setup: The font is very small, the icons small.
Switching to dark design saves my eyes and S9+ battery.
Adjusting the display size from ‘dafault’ to ‘large’ creates well readable views and the appropriate icon size.
The fact that the eOS ROM generated on 20.01.2021 is released with ‘Android security patch level 5. Nobember 2020’ at the end of Janauar 2021 and with older microG Services Core 0.2.14.204215 speaks volumes - at least for me, as already with the S9 'starlte’.
