Even with guest networks, you still have to share some kind of information with visitors to your home, and that often means spelling out some nonsense numbers and letter that they'll probably get wrong twice before you just write it down or text it to them.

Samsung’s recent efforts to proactively release Android 10 to its flagship handsets left us impressed, considering the Korean brand was notorious for its protracted release schedules not too long ago.
