Using Quick Partition can improve file sharing on Galaxy devices. In addition, there are security updates and regular bug fixes for May 2021 from Google. However, this update affects and disables Google Pay. So after this update you can no longer pay with Google Pay. If you do not need a complete update, it is better to wait until Samsung reboots and delivers a bug-free update. It is recommended to back up the data before the update so that it is protected during the update.
