    I wouldn't get too excited, my battery life has been pants since updating last week, I've done cache partition wipes etc and nothing has changed. Improved battery life was pretty much the main reason I was wanting to update as well!

    I could not care less when it comes. And I won't update right away anyway. I had a Nexus 6P and we got Nougat a long time ago. And it was a mess. I never did upgrade mine because of all the threads with various issues. So I'm in no hurry now either. I have never been happier with a smart phone than this one, so I just hope the update does not screw up my perfect S7E.

    Not sure I follow. Why is it "shame on Samsung"? Isn't it the carriers that are delaying it at this point?

    No it's not the carriers.. My phone paid full price nearly 1000 dollars in thailand still no news when it will be updated.
    According to some research I read over 80 percent of the S7 range are purchased for cash unlocked and still no upgrade. Only a few counties have had the upgrade some parts of USA and UK, Korea China Russia, France..
    Truly a dissgrace. Even we are relatively small in numbers we are influencers by that I mean when the normal person wants to but a new phone we have a lot of weight with friends and family..
    I would luv too find another brand besides pixel that maintains its upgrades for at least 3 years and Offers speedy updates... Any ideas besides Apple which I'm not rulling out in future. Surely we could all email Samsung and put some pressure behind them.
    They are taking the p iss out of us

    Yes this can be the case.

    Samsung send it to the Network. The Network test it and send it back. Samsung apply any requested changes and push it out.

    But this is for Branded phones only.

    I'm in the Uk with un branded phone and still waiting.

    Samsung U.K advise its sent out in waves.

    Bottom line is I pay Verizon (US) for a service. Nougat has some very attractive and much needed changes to the UI, taking full advantage of the hardware (S7 Edge). It is now January 30th and still no sign of the Nougat Update. Verizon isn't talking, Samsung isn't talking. No one will say a thing about the upgrade to 7.0 / 7.1.1 (or whatever it may be IF be when it is released to the Verizon branded S7 Edge. The only thing ticking me off about the whole situation, is neither party is giving a timeline - if one even exists at this point.

    Keeping customers in the dark is becoming a terrible process - especially when they pay hard earned $$$ for premium services...

    Those who have the unlocked version and haven't received the update, just download and flash. It is extremely simple. Trust me, I was scared too when I did it for the first time. But it's extremely easy.

    YouTube 'Odin flash s7 edge tutorial'

    All you have to do is to download the firmware from sammobile. Download a software called Odin. Connect your phone and click a button. That's all.

    It doesn't trip knox. It's official firmware. It's not rooting or anything. Find the specific firmware on the site for your model and put it on download.

    It's extremely simple. If I can do it so can everyone else.

    There are zero amount of things which could go wrong actually. You just have to be careful about downloading the right firmware and that's it.

    I agree....

    ...... this supposed staggered waved rollout is poor.

    People who have it are reporting little or no bugs.

    Samsung should be working on getting Nougat sent out much faster if nothing else to install some confidence back into their products.

    Great in theory - unfortunately the only firmware posted on Sammobile.com for the SMG935V, is 6.0.1 - so no manual upgrade yet...

    Things that concern me is that some people are reporting issues with their phone after doing processes like you mention above.

    I've jail broken many iPhones so the actual process does not concern me and have troubleshot my way out of trouble. But I'm wanting to have this pushed to the phone and update that way hopefully negating any possible issues.

    What I want is for a Team at Samsung for the Un Branded and also a Team at the various relevant Networks for Branded phones to start the wheels in motion now.

    I did it with my S6 edge. I did it with my S7 too. If nougat is problematic then you WILL face problems either way. Like some people are having poor battery life and I'm having the best battery life ever. Experience will vary anyways.

    But I understand where you're coming from. You want even more official than official

    You'll have to wait then.

    I have the G935u as well, and on sammobile's website the latest firmware is still the security update for 6.0.1, so yes, it should be coming OTA at some point, but it's not available yet.

    Not sure why Samsung delays updates for the 93xU variant. My 935F Exynos variant receives updates every month on the BTU CSC and works perfectly with all US GSM carriers.
