I just got it a few weeks ago and mine had 7.0 nougat on it. I really like the phone. Its fast and very responsive. The battery has to be watched and you have to be willing to tweak your phone ( developer's option, lower that screen brightness, get rid of haptic feedback, shorten your screen timeout to 15 sec. etc etc...) Also a black wallpaper or very dark one is better.
The phone graphics are very nice. I had the note 4 before this one and the note 4, for its time, was an amazing phone. I really do not like that we cant remove the battery and no micro sd card expansion was a seriously shit move on Samsung.
Over all the games play well, the video is nice and the overall look of nougat is sleeker and more modern looking. I also like the new features in the menus. I really wish the notification panel was dark or black. too much white hurts the eyes.
If you can afford the new s8 then get that but if you're on a budget, I like this phone a lot. Get yourself a clear case and nice screen protector and you'll be fine.

I had an Galaxy note 5 last year and after 2 months of usage in went very lag as hell, it takes 10 seconds to launch an app!!! Imagine that? Even the keyboard doesn't respond at all. It also overheats whenever I play video games or use the camera. Now, samsung has convinced me not to buy their products again! EVER!!! i think i'll switch to iphone now.

Everybody who updates their phone please " Clear cache partition and restore factory settings".
It is always recomended and it will solve all your problems.
Its a fine hand phone. Yesterday, there was an update and after that it cannot open WeChat!
