    So, here's my experience with Nougat:

    I first updated at the end of March. I loved it. The UI of Nougat was easy on the eyes, intuitive, and fun to use. It also broke my phone.

    Luckily I was still under warranty so I received a new Turbo 2 from Motorola. At this time, I didn't realize it was the update that cause all my problems... I just thought that my phone was doing the abuse it put up with for a year.

    When I got the new phone, I wanted the update again to have all the Nougat features back. However, this was right around the time they pulled the update. I didn't realize they had until *after* I spent an hour on the phone with Verizon and Motorola. When I finally found out it was pulled, all the pieces came together, and I resentfully took heart that I was still running Marshmallow.

    Enter problems, stage left. After using my phone for a glorious three weeks, and deferring the the recently re-released update once a day out of fear, all of my offlined Spotify songs disappeared. I redownloaded them and kaboom. My phone heated up and never cooled down, my battery plummeted, and my phone would charge ridiculously slow. I half expected my phone to read that it was running Nougat, but it wasn't. I put up with these problems for about a week before realizing that my phone was no longer in warranty. At that point, I was at my wit's end with my Turbo and out of a twisted sense of rebellion, I updated my phone.

    Enter saving grace, stage right.

    My battery problems were solved. My notification issues were solved. My charging issues were solved. I had one quickly-remedied issue with Netflix.

    My battery last me three days on standby, all day with heavy usage.

    I'm not telling this story as a prescriptive bit of advice. I was terrified to update my phone again. I don't know if this would work for anyone else. But you wanted to know if anyone was crazy enough to update their phone again. This is what happened when I did.

    Figured I'd share my experience:
    The past couple of months my phone has been really, really, agonizingly slow. Like several seconds to switch apps etc. Tried clearing the cache partition but that didn't help. Was afraid to update to Nougat after hearing the problems people were having finally bit the bullet and did it yesterday and now my phone is like-minded fast and I haven't had any downsides.
