    I'm a non-beta Sprint S7 user in California. I got the update last night (2/21/2017 around 11 pm) without having to check for updates. It's Android System 7.0.

    Here's the text of my announcement screens:
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Software Update

    The latest software version is ready to install.
    Version: G930PVPU4BQAA / G930PSPT4BQAA / G930PVPU4BQAA
    Size: 1392.02 MB

    What's new
    OS upgrade Android 7.0 Nougat
    Provides new UX and various performance modes
    Improved usability of the Notification feature and Quick settings button
    Improved usability of the Multi window
    Improved setting menu and AOD feature, addition of the Samsung pass feature
    Efficient space for installation of downloaded apps, improved

    - If you are using Gear IconX, please make sure to update to the latest version before upgrading to the Nougat OS.

    - Some apps that haven't been optimised for Android Nougat might not work properly after the upgrade. In this case, upgrade the app to the latest version via Galaxy Apps or Play Store.

    - The functionality of some features may differ after the upgrade. Some apps may not function normally.

    - Errors during the upgrade may cause data loss. Back up any important data before upgrading.

    Your device will restart after the update is installed. Tap here for more information.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    I use a solid black wallpaper background on my home screens, so I don't need squircles to help my icons stand out. I like the icons with odd shapes. Making them all the same shape makes it look like iOS. Fortunately, you can turn off the squircles.
    Settings > Display > Icon frames > choose Icons only or Icons with frames

    Pulling down from the top now shows me my first six quick settings instead of five, but they have no text labels. A second pull shows more, with text labels. I haven't found a setting way to show text labels on the first, quickest row.

    Pull down when the phone is unlocked and I get one row of six quick settings and then notifications. That's good. Pull down when the phone is locked and I get three rows of four quick settings (swipe left to see the rest), the brightness slider (need to tap to see the auto brightness toggle), and then hardly any screen space left for notifications. But you can swipe up to go back to the one row of quick settings and see more notifications. Seems like a nuisance and an extra swipe if you've set your quick settings top row to the ones one uses 99% of the time. I'll need to figure this out.

    I have a notification from Samsung Cloud that "Syncing will start soon" Tap it and the screen says:
    Get 15 GB of free storage space
    Samsung Cloud keeps all your important data secure and available on all your devices, such as images, videos, and apps.
    There's a button labeled START in the lower right corner that I haven't tapped.
    After looking at it twice without tapping START, the notification went away.

    I had a notification from Calendar (which I don't use, since I use Business Calendar 2) about notifications from it. Tapping it took me to the Application Info screen for Calendar. I didn't change anything, and then the notification went away.

    I feel like a cranky oldster, but some things are just harder to see now. It seems that each update after KitKat makes text and icons incrementally thinner and lower contrast.

    I'm having the same issue. It is stuck on LTE Plus screen. What did Sprint do when you took it into the store?
    My phone was stuck on the LTE splash screen for about 5-10 minutes, but I left it alone and it ROARED TO NOUGAT LIFE!

    So far I am loving the update. I did a full wipe after install. I'm a sucker for a clean start after all the beta updates.
    Mine did hang at the LTE screen for about 4 mins. After that it's been really good. Battery life so far today has been the best
    it's been in months.

    Thanks for the heads up. Same issue here. The rest went fine. Will monitor for a while.

    Yeah I just got the download. I'm a bit worried about installing it since some people are saying there are issues about it getting stuck at the LTE screen...

    I think patience is the key

    mine stayed on the LTE screen for maybe 6 - 7 minutes...

    Then continued to reboot and finish the install normally.

    From download to completely finished install was about 30 mins.

    Loving the improved battery life.... 🤣

    Yeah it's stuck at the LTE screen. The notification light is blue. Just hope it goes through. This shouldn't even be happening getting stuck at that screen...

    So far so good. First cycle was great. I was on WiFi all day and typically my battery life is used mostly by my listening to music. I didnt listen to to much music but with heavy usage im happy. Most people get barly half of whay i got so im satisfied. Its at 10% and although it says i have battery saver on i had just turned it on while i looked for my charger to charge it.

    So far good... After a few minutes it booted up. I charged it last night so we'll see how it performs and the battery life.

    Do you think that would be a really long life battery? Is it a marketing trick? However, the large display, must consume a lot of energy.

    It does. It also seems like nougat has allot of idle drain. I went to the store with 77% with an hour and 30mins of sot and came home with 69%. This trip was barley a an hour. Hopfully it settles in over the weekend.

    Battery life is better, especially when you change the display resolution

    Is anyone else having an issue with their predictive text after the update? It works fine while texting, but if browsing the web such as Google's search bar it doesn't have predictive text. I've checked my language and input as well as the settings under Google. Also not a fan of the update to the text icons
