    Have the unlocked version with a T-Mobile sim and got Nougat a couple of weeks ago. Go figure …

    I am not crazy about Android 7. Nothing new.

  • Bailey Collins

    I think a lot of people that owned this phone had to wait so long they have moved on to a new phone. Not that there is anything wrong with this phone. It’s just been a long time coming.

    Try having the US-unlocked S7, which is still stuck on 6.0.

    Man ever since i got the update, my phone has been acting up. I am having issues with making some calls so i have to keep restarting it. Doesnt charge as fast.

      Did you get the update OTA? or did you use the Smart Switch program?

    Be aware that the update to my Galaxy Note 5 is now giving me problems with making phone calls at certain moments. It requires entry and the exit to/from airplane mode to be able to make outbound calls.

    Be very wary of this update making things more screwy…..What a shame….The update to Marshmellow wasn’t this unstable….

  • Kim Pittendrigh

    Rcvd the update and experienced some problems with dialing out. Restarted phone and issue seems to have resolved, Noticing when using it in the car, the soft buttons in google maps were sometimes unselectable

      Yeah my wife’s phone has the same problem.
      Very annoying.
