    Are there any improvements to touchwiz with this vs MM?

    Use Nova exclusively but have read some snippets saying the TW may have improved again since MM. Was good on the Note 7 apparently.

    I really like it too, taking some time to figure out where everything is in settings though.

    Having some issues with the notification led and the Facebook app does not seem to work (keeps closing) otherwise though all good.
    What issues are you having with the notification LED?

    Im most happy with VOLTE being enabled on my unlocked edge in the UK. Previously you've always needed the carrier version to get VOLTE on android, only the iPhone supported it natively. But it's now working great on the EE network with the nougat beta.

    Finding the new look a bigger change than expected it to be but overall happy. Few lags here and there but no major bugs.

    Anyone know how to give feedback? The FAQ said to use the beta app but it doesn't have any options in there to do so. Is it this new Samsung members app?

    I'm loving the update so far, its taking a while to get used to the new settings menu but I'm sure it'll become easier soon. Has anyone used android pay yet? I tried this morning in my usual shop before work and it wasn't picked up at all by the card reader. I've checked the pay app and all the settings I can think of and they all look correct.

    Also the out and about feature is gone? I really liked this for setting things like mute and WiFi off at work, wifi on when I got home. Was this a feature on the note? I'd really like to have it back.

    It was just the LED not flashing when a message comes through. Seems to be working ok now though.

    Already I am seeing a noticeable improvement to battery life, so it seems the doze and data saver are doing their stuff.

    It was on the Note 7 but it was tied into the Places slide out tab.

    Signed up yesterday afternoon (Sprint), got the update last night.....

    The Positive: Brings back some of the features I miss from Note 7 - 3rd party notifications on AOD; Improved Settings menu (Blue light filter, improved device management...); Greatly improved Notification Tray; Smooth interface so far and battery life seems improved.

    The Negative (for me) - Says there is update for Samsung Pay but get error when trying to download; If you are a VR Gear user it will not work with Beta;

    General - Not having the reported Facebook Crashes; New App (Samsung Members) allows you to send feedback and view/comment on Beta Community and view Beta Notices.

    Love it so far, much closer to Note 7 experience...

    Is there any way to get this now? Been trying since yesterday afternoon and it keeps saying it's full. Is there like a T-Mobile version that can be updated with Odin yet? Sigh. I really wanted to try this.

    I'm loving this. It's like having my note 7 back. No problems navigating menus as it looks identical to note 7. Glad to see all the 3rd party messaging apps are now supported on the always on display. Seems faster as well. Keyboard better as well.

    Yes, in the Samsung Members app is where you provide feedback.

    My battery life is actually phenomenal on the beta. It just doesn't seem to drain at all. Maybe the battery meter is wrong!

    I would normally get 4 hours screen on max on a work day. Not the best signal at work and no Wi-Fi. On course for a good hour more than that, maybe even 2!

    I had lots of apps complaining about the update , including gear. I did a factory reset and everything works fine.

    It may well have worked fine had I not done that, but I was happy to start fresh.

    I tried out the LGV20 and that Nougat was awesome. I might even go back to that phone until S8 debuts
