    Now that it's been released to Nexus devices, when is the Note 7 getting it?

    I don't think we will see it for a couple of months more. My guess is October, and that's just a guess,lol.

    If history holds true it will be February at best. I just don't see it happening any sooner than that. I would love to be wrong.

    Yep. Samsung may have it ready around October. But, by the time the carriers get done with it, it'll probably be February.

    The Note 7 already has the major features of Android Nougat,, and in fact had them before Nexus did. But when will they actually have an update that they call "Nougat?" Samsung says November at the latest.

    Hopefully not any time soon. My phone is running great. I don't even want an update at this point.

    That's what I said about my Note 5 - that thing was running sooooo smooth since the Marshmallow update, I didn't want to touch it ever again. I guess I won't have to worry about that now?

    The features that will make Nougat worthwhile for the Note are:
    1. Much better Doze/standby battery life.
    2. Larger screens in app switching.
    3. Double tap the app switching button to switch between the 2 most recent apps.

    So nothing huge, but it will be good if they don't botch it up. Last year when the Note 5 came out, Samsung promised Marshmallow within 3 months of its release. The earliest US provider to release it was T-Mobile, and I believe that was 6 months after release. So I wouldn't expect anything before the S8 ships, or around mid-March 2017.

    I Reckon March next year. We are hardly missing out on anything though as the galaxy phones have had a lot of the features in Android N for a while now e. g split screen, customisable quick toggles, quick reply to notifications etc

    A potentially very useful thing, if it ever makes it to the final version, is the white balance adjustment of screen (in addition to the four presets). However, seeing that a few manufacturers now put effort into offering as close to approved standard calibration, including samsung, there may be pressure from manufacturers to drop that.

    Personally I'd love to see it appear. Whilst I like the ,basic' setting I still use SCREEN BALANCE (app store) to create minute adjustment. Whilst a good app it does create screen overlays.

    Samsung and updates don't go together, you buy the phone expecting what it is, is what it will be for 12 months.

    I like the silence notification part where you can set any app to get silent notifications, very good for games, spamy apps.. Or maybe Samsung have it already?

    This is what I've been saying. However, just like the spec war, Samsung needs to keep up with the latest version of Android to keep sales going.

    true, but certain carriers need extra time to bake in features like a directv app which I'll disable 3 seconds after it's installed.
