Telephoto lens works only in bright and good condition. Covering the tele lens confirm will have it disable so you are better off partially covering the wide lens to test.

so i updated. I just tried point my camera at a fluorescent light, zoomed in by pressing the single leaf and cover the main/middle camera lens with my finger. For a few seconds, I can still see an image which means it's using the telephoto lens.
After a while, the phone detects that it's not bright enough cos my finger is blocking and switch back to the main lens which is blocked by my finger.

So for my case, the update didn't disable my zoom.
tested this and can see the switching
my bad, don't know how to test the tele lens properly

Probably because there was a critical security issue that was patched in the October updates. Get ready to go back to 3 months wait again!

Just dropped my phone and the screen conked out with faded colours and lines, front glass screen did not crack though, out of warranty. Does anyone know if it is advisable to go to third party repair shops - usually cheaper and can get the phone faster, but unsure about the quality of the replacement screen. Or should I just go to Samsung Service Centre.

Samsung service center may take an hour or so if not busy. The actual replacement is pretty fast.

IP68 is impt for me, so I would go back to Samsung.

Went down today to get it replaced. Damage $315, replacement was very fast around an hour. Front glass, lcd, battery all replaced together as they come in a set.

Advise you to get a good protective case like Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Only around 40 sgd. Compare that to the 300 plus it costs to fix a screen.
