Dear Samsung, please let me exclude screenshots from Google Photos backups

After years of using mostly stock-Android phones, I bought a Galaxy S10e for myself a few months ago, and I've used it almost every day since that point. While the software experience isn't perfect, Samsung does usually provide options to disable functionality I don't care for.

Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite roundup: Release date, prices, renders, features, and more

The last few years have seen Samsung (and other) flagships inch closer to the $1000 mark, virtually vacating the $600-700 segment where devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone XR mushroomed. These flag-bearers of the affordable flagship category soon garnered a rather widespread appeal, naturally leaving Samsung wanting a piece of the pie.

With this year quickly coming to a close, Samsung has ramped up efforts to finalize One UI 2.0 for its January 2020 launch. Just one week after beta 3 dropped for the Galaxy S9/S9+, the fourth Android 10 beta for these devices is now available in India and the UK.
