    Great to see that HTC are working fast do support HTC 10 users however I'm going to hang back a little on installing it. I don't want to be an early adopter just because of previous bad experiences... (lollipop and to a lesser extent Marshmallow both on HTC M8). N will give more features (and possibly performance increase?) But Marshmallow runs great on my phone so I don't want to mess with that!
    I'll be lurking around the various forums seeing seeing real world reports from the early adopters and probably still only upgrade when/if they release 7.1 which should be even more stable.

    I had an issue with connection to AT&T network, but I muddled through it. So far it seems ok, a little more Google nagware (Turn On OK GOOGLE!, Do you want to use....?) But other than that, it seems to have gone ok so far.

    Thanks, good to hear hope this is good sign of things to come....again I actually would prefer the HTC programmers and coders had longer time to update / port Android updates as it would lessen the chances of bugs as that's one potential downside of rush to fulfill the 90 day update promise. Oh well, as said I earlier I'll likely to wait till 7.1...but good luck to you 7.0 early adopters! 😊

    I doubt it will be super riddled with bugs considering that the bolt comes out of the box with 7.0. The hardware between the phones is similar.

    It feels smoother, I haven't noticed many bugs for Nougat. I'm loving that we can FINALLY customize our Quick Settings, and the double-tap Recents to switch to last app is awesome. The call screen has four buttons now (Add, Bluetooth, Mute, Speaker) instead of three, and otherwise I haven't seen many new tweaks. Oh, we did get Night mode.

    I am waiting a little bit as well to see what the community says. However I don't think it's going to have that many bugs because HTC is the one who developed and built the pixel so Google is giving then the updates early they have had the update for almost three and a half months now since Google originally released nougat. They have had planned to make sure and work out bugs. They are doing 7. 0 to try and make it a smoother transition before in a month or two doing 7.1 to the unlock devices.

    There only "bug" I've noticed is under settings>more>Data usage>Data Saver. The description is for battery saver, not Data Saver.

    Lollipop was a dumpster fire on more than just HTC devices. It ruined my Moto X 2014 and my Google Play Edition LG Tablet for months before there was a fix.

    Good point, still however, I do hope HTC revise and update again to 7.1. We haven't had a double update within a single major os version since KitKat.... Lollipop maybe could have been saved if they had updated to 5.1. But instead we had to suffer 5.01 for a whole year. When I got my M8 i think the M8 got two or three different flavors of KitKat 4.4.2, 4.4.3 and 4.4.4...

    I have had this HTC since launch and there has been no shortage of updates for it. I have the unlocked variant. Also I don't want 7.1 because it's not even finished and won't be released officially till next month. It was a ploy to get more people to buy the Android iPhone.

    If you have a carrier version then that falls on them to get you the updates in a timely manner. HTC has been on top of timely updates since the launch of the phone.

    Agreed! Smoother and my battery is lasting longer. For some reason HTC didn't allow "auto sync" to be one of the quick settings. Duo is also in the update, but can't be uninstalled. We FINALLY have multicultural emoticons too (press and hold)!

    And yet we can't escape those horrible HTC smiley faces... The rest of the emoji are Google's just use the whole kit! Could get the multicolor emoji on SwiftKey, but not on TouchPal.

    I'm happy for Data Saver and Battery Saver in Quick Settings, I go on vacation this week and I'm gonna use those a lot!

    I got the update on Friday and everything was fine until about midday today when all of a sudden my phone shut down...repowered it but my Google Play Services seems to be a bit borked now, it is telling me I need to sign in, but won't when I try to, and some Google apps like Gmail and YouTube are signed out and won't sign in either. Other non-Google apps and phone functions seem to be working fine though. I'm thinking a Play Services update came down and didn't play nice with the update. Has this happened to others? I'd do a factory reset but I am out of the country and don't want to risk completely borking the phone until I am home (tomorrow night) and have a backup at hand.

    Try another keyboard. SwiftKey did it for me but not TouchPal.

    Yes I have received all the small minor incremental updates toi but usually the major revisions from Google contain much more optimizations than the minor updates. 7.1 as a major revision will likely be much more optimized and less likely to have the bugs than the public beta 7.0... to be honest It's only been a few hours since the 7.0 update was received for htc10...and from what I'm reading so far it looks good.. people are reporting better battery life and snappiness...but I remember people saying that in the first few days if lollipop too until many realized what a disaster it was...I'll give it a few weeks before jumping in...

    Noticed my first bug today. My notification shade got stuck in the status bar. Couldn't use either for a few minutes but it resolved itself. Otherwise it's been perfect!

    This isn't a public beta for the HTC 10. That is for Samsung and all those other guys. Also keep in mind HTC has probably had their hands on nougat longer than most. Considering they are making the pixel phones. Developers on XDA have had the HTC nougat for the last month.

    Update on my problem - factory reset fixed it. A pain, but now the phone is running great, battery life is improved and this thing is flying even more than before. Also, is it me or is the camera functioning a bit better too?

    I agree. I'm sure by the time we get 7.1, 7.2 or 8.0 will have been announced. There's always something newer on the horizon. No reason to not have the latest right now, especially since HTC has done a good job with it.

    Edit: And there it is. 7.1.1 is now out....
