Anonymous, 11 Jan 2017Because of discrimination from Samsung I changed whole my family phone to iphone7, what's the ... moreOh look. I downgraded to the less featureful and smaller iPhone 7 just because my much more advanced and more featureful S7 edge will eventually have Nougat real soon and it will obviously be the most advanced Android skin out there, but I dont like to wait, i like to constantly updating my phone so that I can brag to all my friends that my phone is more relevent then theirs. I mean, yeah, the S7 edge HAVE bigger and better display, bigger battery, better design, top notch camera, wireless charging capable, have a compact 5.5 inch body, multi window support, edge panel custimization, but hey, I'm willing to throw it all through the window just because the iPhone have many updates but in the same time, still have less feature than any phone on the market. Yeepee!

So you can pay more for a less featured device with less freedom and technology because they give updates for the sake of updates where a lot of them just fool people into thinking they are updated.
And even though the Samsung one might be taking a longer to update because there is more software and technology to update their software is already more advanced.
So that even once that samsung stops getting updated and the iPhone still receives them the Samsung will still be more advanced and capable of more.
But no. Your iphone shows a newer number so it's better
AnonD-631222, 11 Jan 2017How can i update my phone to Nougat now? i have a Verizon S7 edgeWait till February 2017 end.
Because of discrimination from Samsung I changed whole my family phone to iphone7, what's the point if having expensive phone while no first priority for s7 or s7 edge. U till today no update and I assume that the update will be release after February 2017 and not January 2017.
It's a big joke by Samsung to release update for other brand and not considering their brand customer.
All of the reader I recommend to replace you phone with iphone7

Alien , 11 Jan 2017I'm not trolling, but I would be so pissed off right now if I had a Sammy phone. Specially an ... moreHow dare they take slightly longer to make sure they work out kinks and the fact that they actually have more features to develop for and make sure work and have more phones to update..
The nerve. Now that an update takes a couple months longer than a phone with half the stand out features that actually makes it less advanced despite already being on that higher number means I hate them and I'm gonna talk crap and ditch them...
AnonD-598595, 11 Jan 2017Just out of curiosity, but what device are you using? I bought my S7 due to the hardware and c... moreI'm using a Sony. If Sammy wouldn't add that horrible touchwiz interface that simply makes me throw away the phone when i see it, i would consider buying one. I'm not saying it's lagging, though it does after a while, I just hate the icons, menu style. Why couldn't they make it like Sony or HTC or even Nexus line?
Either way, if I do migrate to Sammy, maybe s8, I will root it for sure in the first week, just to full debloat their so called features.
I did the same thing on my Sony. No more GPS, Bluetooth, radio, screen mirroring, white ballance, NFC and many more.
Stock version OS has 274 apks and now I have only 105 out of which about 10 were added by me.
Just curious, how many system apps does the S7 have?

Probably a couple of months? Who knows. Sold my note 5 for the IP7 Plus. I'm tired of waiting updates for supposedly a 'flagship' device.

Updates are overrated issue anyway.
Someone Else, 11 Jan 2017Are there any difference in Samsung's Nougat update than it is on their Marsmallow update exce... moreI think Nougat is a bigger update than Marshmallow ever was. I updated my phone to Marshmallow and I actually preferred Lollipop.
This has Nougats new features, the new faster smoother U.I and the Note 7 features like change resolution to 1080p and 720p and others.
sa11oum, 11 Jan 2017Wow very good news, now 0.8% of Android devices will be running the latest version xD30 or 40 million S7 phones sold, Nougats adoption rate will more than double, and once it is on the Galaxy S6 series and the Note 5 it will increase more.
