This is really disappointing, I don't know how to react to this problem. I live in Mexico, have the Galaxy S7 edge and still no nougat update. The carrier says that Samsung hasn't released ye.
I have a theory it might not be right but here it goes " if my phone is outdated from the hardware to the software i'll be inclined to buy the new one,given that the S7 edge with the nougat doesn't really feels different than the S8 or S8+.Of course the display is prettier and the facial recognition is not on the S7, but after that it's the Same phone.
I think my phone is gonna be updated when the s8 has a couple of months out !
Still waiting for update for J7 Prime this February 2017 from Samsung
Samsung Galaxy S7, bought in Taiwan. No Nougat anytime soon. #SamsungWhereRU

Nexus 6 is now old news for google and seeing how it's 3 years old that is not a surprise. Only a few phones are lucky enough to receive an update at that age. However, there's always custom ROM option.
sony z5 premium no updates...waiting....when will i get the new update of android 7.0....
I have ASUS ZenFone 3 deluxe. No Android Nougat update yet and manufacturer said to keep updates set to automatic.

I hope we (Nokia users from the 930/929, 830 and 1520) manage to receive updates to Redstone 3.
Other than that, Yeah MS does pay a lot to attention to (their best Nokians) and their MS devices.

Those are mid-rangers with build quality that IMO surpasses the S-line! Also, the updates are not the manufacturers problem like MS can update all sorts of PCs ( new or old), so why cant Google do the same?
I wish I stayed with Marshmallow. The new ux is dumb. In certain areas it is a step backwards. Much ado about nothing. Not worth waiting. Really. The setting section is now ss less transparent.

I have been hearing that "blá blá WM is dead blá blá" since at least 1765... All I know is that their phones get more attention from MS than mine from Spyware Google Inc. :(
Ed, 06 Feb 2017Where is the NO answer because Motorola seems to have forgotten about their G4 line.dude I already receive the update way back in December, and if youre talking about the g3 will may I ask is it hard for you to understand that the g3 is not capable of the new version? even my moto x 2 will not get it knowing the fact that it has SD 801 so shut uop and buy new moto phone.
Leo.grey, 06 Feb 2017In my opinion..i just don't care my android version newer or older as long as working smoothly... moreYes, very. The day and age of major changes seems to be gone, however (in turn) we get a more stable, mature OS with slight improvements at each iteration.
Do you disregard security from your equation?

Sure, it does get updates, but let's be honest... there's no amount of updates that can fix what is truly lacking.
either get a pixel if you want updates. or you could buy an iphone along with a mid-range android phone(if you are rich ) .
