Galaxy S7 Nougat - To Update or Not

DMZMAN
Novice

Now that Nougat is available for the Galaxy S7, the BIG question is To Upgrade or Hold Off.   After the nightmare of updating the S5 to LOLLIFLOP two years ago which turned the Galaxy S5's from great working phones into something S5 owners wanted to smash with a hammer, I'm of course extremely skeptical.

A call to VZW tech support yielded a customer service rep telling me to wait for the next update.  Gee, I wonder why?

Now that the update was released yesterday that fixes the WiFi issues some people have been having, this morning I bit the bullet, and, SUCCESS!!  Nougat works fine, nothing wrong, at least so far.

Phone works great.  The new Nougat features are are pleasure, so if you haven't run the update, do it now!

You might not get it right away either. Personally for all of my phones I don't usually bother "spamming" the check for update button. Sometimes I get the update right away and I'll either hold off on installing until I get to wifi or wait a few days before installing. Other times if I see the posts pop up quickly about issues then I hold off longer.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Possibly because VZW tech support reps don't actually use the devices that they support?!? My nephew updated his phone to Android 7 (Nougat) months ago on another carrier, and he said that it was the best Android update ever...

The bigger issue is that VZW has not pushed out a security update for the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge in MONTHS! Google has been providing monthly updates to the carriers, but VZW has chosen to ignore them as of late.

Don't do the update!!  Read all the posts about WiFi issues people are having.  I put off the Lollipop update on my S4 for over a year because of all the issues with it and the S5.

Hold off.......I updated and my Wifi is no longer useable.  Everything else seems fine.

Technically it's your call to update or not. In the update that I have received yesterday so far I have a problem only with charging. Wifi is working just fine everywhere I go. The fast charging is gone and here how it goes (battery 42% charged): Using oem charger with cable - Charging Estimated 3HRs 45M. Qualcomm charger with anker cable - Charging Estimated 4HRs 30M. 3.1A regular charger - Charging Estimated 4HRs 30M. Samsung Wireless fast charger - Charging Estimated 1HR 58M but after I reconnected the phone showed me 2HRs 30M. Choetech Fast wireless charger - Fast wireless charging Estimated 2HRs 30M. And finally. Moko Fast Wireless charger for car with original charger or Qualcomm charger (no difference) - Charging Estimated 4HRs 15M. After sitting on charge for 30 min my battery went up for 3%. When I go to settings I see fast charging option with message of: "Phone Charging... Disconnect the charger to turn this function on/off." Disconnected, saw the option was on, reconnected this feature and it's disabled again. Charged my phone just fine over night but that's the issue I have. Anyone else for charging issues?

You people kill me. This happens every time.  You all moan and gripe about getting the update and then complain about the update once its released.  I updated and my phone works great by the way.  NO issues with Wifi here.

Es un [Removed] shoot if you upgrade. The upgrade broke my WiFi, which is common with Nougat, and the only fix is to factory reset. I'm not going to wait for Verizon to fix it and the techs will only have you factory reset after trying all the other hacks and solutions that absolutely do not work and if they do it will leave you with disabled functionality on the phone. If I could do it all over again I would wait until the bugs are worked out. Unless you don't need your need your phone for work and have unlimited data then go ahead and roll the dice.Good luck
