    Nope, I already had it installed but noticed there was an update to it today. I was able to download the update with no problem.
    Got it. Icon popped up this morning

    Could someone who's finished with the update, please show their "Baseband Number" once completed. My Note 5 is offline now and in a box - I'm running a Galaxy S7 Active and don't feel like switching my SIM back and forth just to update the Note 5. I'm going to see if I can get the Nougat file over at XDA and sideload it to my Note 5 just so it's updated! Thank you!!!

    To wipe the cache partition, follow these steps:

    EDIT: First turn off phone

    1. Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time:
    • Volume Up key
    • Home key
    • Power key.
    2. When the phone vibrates, release the Power and Home key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key.
    3. Continue holding the Volume Up key until the Android System Recovery menu displays and then release. (This step may take several seconds.)
    4. When Android System Recovery menu appears press the Volume Down key to highlight 'wipe cache partition.'
    5. Press the Power key to select.
    6. When the wipe cache partition is complete, 'Reboot system now' is highlighted.
    7. Press the Power key to restart the device.

    I like the update. It does give the phone interface a good look and feel. I don't like the white squircle around the icons. I switched to a dark theme and that took care of that.

    I wish that I could change the background on the notifications in the notification tray to a white on black as apposed to black on white.

    The jury is still out on the battery life of this update. I also like the fact that you can change the screen resolution, hopefully this will help with battery life.

    The procedure to clear your cache partition needs to start with turning off your phone before you do any of these steps.

    Thank you very much 'vincehny'!

    Mine is still way back at CPJ1 - I think I'm going to have to swap SIM chips and let the damned thing go through some major updating before I get the actual EQC6 Nougat OTA! Damned, I didn't realize I had been off the air with it that long...

    I found Cached Data w/ Clear Button via "Device Maintenance" / Storage/ 3-dots top rt/ Storage - Settings/ Cached Data.
    So WHAT is THAT Cache about IF NOT the Same as yours?

    The cache you're talking about is all the cache from apps, and is a good idea if it's cleared after an update as well. The cache you access by turning off your phone and following the other steps, is a Dalvik cache, more or less a system cache, which is the more important one to clear, imo

    Just updated, liking it a lot. New look, new features deep within. And have you checked the ram usage?? It's nothing compared to what it used to be. Free ram now around 2.0 GB, used to be around 1.2 free.... I'm thinking the battery is going to be better. I have kept the screen resolution at default right now and not full. No app crashes, everything seems good. Crazy Easter egg in the notification panel when you find it, don't know about empty dish, fish, treat or bits... Haha. Does seem to charge slower than it used to using fast wireless charging, just checked the difference, plugged into the fast charger the time estimated remaining is 1 hrs 2min,when I just took it off a fast wireless charger that said 1 hr 34 mins. Phone does seem new, and even more snappier. Liking the notificaion shade. Don't like the fact when you back out of the phone app, it always hide the dialer when you open it back up. Wondering if 3CA is activated

    Just got my update this morning. Actually it was last night that I checked for system updates, then I saw there was a big one available, but I was at work and on mobile data so I had to wait until I got home. Once I was home and connected to the wi-fi the update started automatically. Went to sleep and woke up to Nougat

    Love the new interface, icons and font choices. Also I noticed my S pen is a little snappier and highlights things when it's close to the screen. Didn't see this very much before so I figure it's the update.

    Hello all!

    Downloaded via a Push Notification yesterday and all seems to be working great EXCEPT Fast Charging.....

    Plug in the charger and it does a loop of;

    "BEEP," chargers hooked up and blue light for notification lights up
    It IMMEDIATELY switches "fast charging" to "charging" then undocks as if the cord is unplugged. This all happens in quick succession.
    Rinse, repeat

    It's NOT the cord. I've used several, it's definitely software. Everytime it WILL eventually connect and "fast charge" (it's working properly as I type)

    The amount of loops of that glitch charging cycle are also random. I've had it go through 3 times then connect all the way to 23 times. Once it's connected "fast charge" also any change in the screen being either ON or OFF will start the glitch all over. If I turn the screen off right now it'll start searching for fast charge again. Even turning the phone completely OFF will start it up. Charges fine if the Power is all the way off. Turn the phone On and the glitch starts up till it eventually finds "Fast Charge" again. Just frustrating

    I've done the "Wipe Cache Partition" to no avail. Wiped Cache in storage, nadda for a fix. I suppose I'll have to deal with it until a patch is put out?

    I'd suggest a factory reset. When I updated my S6 it wouldn't charge when the device was turned off, nor would it recognize wireless charging. So, I factory reset and the problem has been fixed.

    Well. After a few days of use here what's not working on mine. I no longer get text message notifications from the phone on my Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. I do how ever get them a little bit later from the NumberSync. When I check notification options in the Samsung Gear app, Messages is no longer showing up. I can't wait until my s8 gets here. LOL.

    Beware of the battery saver mode! It works fine in Mid but I switched it to Max and when I went back to normal my home screen icons and widgets were gone except for 8 apps randomly across 4 home screens! I had to rebuild all my screens again. Tried the home screen and App restore and it didn't work. Wait till that bug is fixed. Also took me a couple of days to fix the lock screen zooming in problem.
