Those whose devices got struck in bootloop after the update would have lost their data... And pls bro, I'm not someone who has never used a samsung device in the past, the same was the case with grand 2, note 3 and even S6... I have used the note 3 and grand 2 myself and my friend had a S6, as soon as any update comes, battery life degrades tremendously, there are overheating issues and sometimes even camera quality degrades... Later on they give stablity updates and after that the performance improves, I still remember I had a grand 2 and it used to charge it 3-4 times a day to get going, I recieved the update in july and in November it got stablized and this was the same case with the other devices that I've mentioned... And I've used other brands too, I had a x play and there were issues after the update, same with htc desire 820 and oneplus 3, major updates are never perfect, so just stop favouring Samsung for every mistake... Yes the update is late and the reason is their marketing strategy to push people towards the latest phone...

Some People's phone was stuck at bootloop after update and simple reset from recovery fixed that. For that simple issue Samsung halted the update so that other customers can have a seamless experience although hard reset is mandatory after such major update. It shows the level of commitment of samsung.

The update is released in one region that too unstable... What's the use of waiting so long, when you can't even roll a stable update... They just want you to buy their latest flagship...
Hello. I'm planning to buy this phone this week. Is this device will get oreo update?
Shhzd amar, 17 May 2018Lol and some people here were saying that samsung takes time to release stable updates...So? What's wrong with that? That's why Samsung halted so that they can fix and again resume update. It's not like Sony or others that once update is given they are not going to do anything.

Â“Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible.Â” - Samsung mobile
wanting to upgrade s7 I have had since September but every phone that comes out is no better. New phones offer no better battery better camera and video recording in Nightclubs has been 9/10 with this I have tried a few other even iphone7,sony xz1 compact but S7 still does stunning job 2 years on. If it had replaceable battery would order one and keep this but battery is getting bit worse and I know it.
So nothing has really come along better but obviously next year this battery will be shot.I can rarely find phones shooting in nightclub videos microphones most buckle under club bass. I wish GSMArena went too bass heavy club to test microphones in video recording.
Iphone, Sony and recent Samsung not bad but what about Huawei,Nokias new ones motoroloas and so on. Moto/Nokia doing stock android but no good to me if mikes are rubbish .
Samsung temporarily halts rollout of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update due to some device reboot suddenly. So wait wait and wait for oreo...
Now mine is dead just used it for 1yr and 11 months. Not used heavily because I am not a gamer. Dropped it in some times but not that hard. And now I am so happy with my huawei p20 lite. I can really compare the difference in performance.

Overall Better Value for money

Always new things around the corner. May be you and I and few others love our s7 but the fact is Samsung already have our money and they are not gaining anything now unless you upgrade. If everything is super prompt you are not going to buy the latest and greatest phone every year, will you?? The hardware s7 has will last for another 2 year with ease and Samsung knows that. So they are tempting people to get their newest phone nothing else. Plus they have limited engineers and developers assigned to this 2yr old flagship than newer ones which enjoys highest priority. Just wait for some time because that is the last update anyway.

If you want latest and greatest go for s9/s9+ or wait forever for an upd... moreI completely agree with the fact that samsung has a large portfolio but shouldn't Samsung prioritize S7 because it was once a flagship? I guess it should... It effects their image as a brand, I mean flagships are meant to have everything latest, then why not the andriod version? And its been a fair amount of time too, sony, moto and even chinese manufacturers like oneplus and huawei got their phones updated to oreo long ago... Then why not Samsung?
I want the oreo update just because there are some features like applock etc that are coming with the experience 9, once experience 9 arrives I'll be able to uninstall a lot of apps, because the UI would have the features integrated...
