    I have A galaxy note 5, (Verizon) All the SAMSUNG APP'S Update
    And security Yet, Samsung doesn't have any os updates anymore,
    I currently have what the phone came with....Nougat 7.0

    I'd like to be able to run some APP'S that aren't supported by Nougat 7.0 Anymore.

    Thank YOU

    hi there, Nougat 7.0 was the final update pushed by Samsung through OTA. In simple words the device is out of software support cycle. I will strongly suggest you to upgrade to the latest Samsung has to offer.

    Welcome to Android Central! This is how things work -- in the past, most flagship devices only got update support for 18-24 months at the most, and it's not much better these days. If you want a phone that will get reliable updates for at least 3 years, then get a Pixel phone. Other good options include OnePlus, any Android One phone (usually Nokia), and to a lesser extent Samsung flagships.
