    I use Nova regularly anyway. So, overall, with that fix in place you'd recommend updating? I'm on the fence lol...
    With Nova the phone is as good as new (even better with some judicious Nova customizations). 7.0 features are well worth the update.

    The update to Nougat was easily the best update I have ever installed on a cell phone. Everything from the installation process to the use of the new OS went incredibly smoothly. The update installed in less than 20 minutes. This was the first time I haven't experienced any problems after a major update. The phone is faster, battery life is marginally better, and app updates from the Play Store install in record time.

    Has anyone experienced reduced signal strength from the update?

    No. In fact, this may be the first update i've ever had improve everything... With the exception of loss of read access to root.

    I got my wife a Z Play on black friday. She didn't like it so I stole it. I admit that I switch between several phones. But the update hasn't caused any issues that I have noticed. Love the features that 7.0 added.

    I wonder how different the builds are between Verizon and non-Verizon? Mine is buttery smooth with no stutters. Seems like other VZW people in this thread are saying the same. Is anyone on Verizon seeing these stutters? I am on stock launcher though, so not sure if that makes a difference (used to use Google Launcher, but I find the native launcher is fine).

    My performance hasn't been that great. Crashing apps, cell signal killing battery, slow to open apps sometimes, even overall performance isn't what id hoped it'd be. Not sure if the fact that I'm using an SD card as internal storage is having an impact or not.

    After two years of SD card issues way back with the Droid Incredible, I promised to never use one​ again. Fast forward: I have one installed but not as adopted storage; just media lives there.

    If I were you, I'd do a factory reset, jettison adopted storage (if that's how you set it up) and install Nova.

    Thanks for your reply @tjh123. I'm a bit concerned about running out of space without​using adoptable storage though. My card is pretty fast so not sure why it's having issues. I already use Nova so not sure why I'm still having issues. Battery is really taking a beating lately too. Switched to T-Mobile and coverage can be a little weak sometimes. Wondering if a hard reset would help and if so why?

    Try volume down and power button for 30-40 seconds.
