Got oreo on my s7 in bulgaria. Finally....
Very smooth and fast! Stay another year with samsung
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2018Guys how's battery usage if you update to oreo? And how's camera in oreo?Idle battery drain got reduced at a great extent after the update... Also the charging times are now faster... But it charges very slow when you're using the phone, to my surprise, I was watching a movie while charging and the battery percent dropped... Anyways that's just nitpicking... It outperformed my expectations so I'm happy...
Hi I want to know the pros and cons post Oreo update by any Indian users on their Galaxy S7.
Any major bugs is there nd what about the camera. Detailed reply awaited.
Anyway to disable app drawer as I want to put some app there since swipe up or down take me to all my apps. App drawer is taking unnecessary place.

Shhzd amar, 13 Jun 2018IDK... My S7 used to have that on nougat but after oreo it doesn't ask for any passwordIts strange. This is not only a nice feature bt also very important one. Its a must have feature for every smartphone now. Nice to see that samsung kept this in oreo bt don't know what's wrong with ur phone.

I have an S7 for work and use it daily. If you are considering Android - DO NOT GET THIS PHONE. I do not understand how Samsung can make an Android device that cost nearly twice as much as my other phones and have managed to MUNGE that Android experience to the point that phone feels like a different OS. The phone is running Android 7.0 and performance is great, the phone is pretty, and the screen is nice, battery life is good, and things run smooth. The finger print sensor is sub optimal, it works only about half the time. Its worse than on my phones that are 1/3 the prince of this thing. The phone dialer sucks. Voice mail is useless, Default Text App horrible. No App drawer, the Samsung Android Overlay is just awful from a feeling point of view. I would never spend the amount of money on this phone for the Status symbol of owning a SAMSUNG.
I have 2 other Androids; I have an Honor 6X for personal use and use a Motorola G5 daily as well. I loath having to use the Samsung. These phone retial for $200 dollars US, where the Samsung is $600 or more. I do not see the extra $400 dollars in value in the Samsung. After using several more affordable phones I can not recommend the S7 over the other 2 phones mentioned.
I would recommend buying a less expensive phone and spend the savings on a IPAD and am not an Apple Fan either.
I hope this helps you evaluate your options for an Android device. If you choose the S7 I am sure you will be happy. But, you will be out an extra 400 dollars as well. AND if you are on a Contract even more. I do not do contracts.

One thing I miss from the nougat firmware is that you could not switch off/on the phone and mobile data/wifi without unlocking the phone, this was a great security measure as if your phone would get stolen you could easily track it...
