@Staudey The nvidia-drm.modeset=1 kernel is a standard solution to get rid of screen tearing issues on Nvidia Prime laptops, since they lack certain options in Nvidia's settings tool. See Harvey's survival guide post in the forums for reference. I've had this parameter set this way for as long as I've been using Solus (nearly 3 years now) and it's never caused me any issues before...
As for disabling the integrated GPU in the bios, I looked around but couldn't find any option for it. I think my laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 530) does not support this functionality and the dedicated GPU is rather a co-processor, where the integrated GPU is the only connected to the display and needs to be enabled for any display to the laptop's screen to work.
@kaktuspalme Thanks for the help!
@Staudey Any updates on this issue, given that the problem is quite critical?

I should have mentioned it in my original post, but I made absolutely sure everything is up-to-date. To confirm for nvidia-glx-driver-current, here is the info you requested:

I can confirm I've got the same problem since at least the December 18th Solus update. However, in my case, no concurrent updates happened for my device (Galaxy Tab S6 Lite running Android 10 November update). I noticed the issue following the December 18th update, but it had been a while since I tried to move files to my Samsung device. So I'm wondering if the issue was ultimately caused by the Nautilus or kernel 5.10.x update, although it seems limited to Samsung devices because I can't reproduce it on my Pixel phone running Android 10 either.
