    And going way the other way is the totally sucko theme and wallpaper app that forces you to give permissions for phone, contacts and one other that I can't remember. Just to change wallpaper, that is way stupid. Have you perchance found something else to do that?
    The only way I known of is to install a 3rd party wallpaper app. They will also require permissions, but not as many.

    Just installed on two different S7 Edges. One of them went without a hitch the other is having Wifi issues. The Wifi constantly connects then drops and then automatically turns Wifi off. There seems to be others with this issue from previous phone/vendor upgrades. Did anyone have this issue or know of a fix????

    Just to make sure, was this update supposed to have the launcher shortcut feature? I don't have it on mine.
    I am not sure what you mean by launcher shortcut.

    Surprised it rolled out today. I updated and everything is fine. Battery life has not diminished in any way.

    I am glad a factory reset fixed you all up. There is nothing like a smooth running freshly reset device. I don't understand why some people get mad when it's even mentioned. Oh well, cheers!

    Oh, yes thank you, it should definitely be there. I am not sure why you would not have it. I do not know of a way fix to fix it other than doing a factory reset.

    Well, to clarify, when I long press an app, I do get some options, but nothing like that article describes.

    I get a gray box with some options, but not this - https://www.droidmen.com/app-shortcu...ugat-3d-touch/

    Factory reset after install and all running really smooth. So far so good.

    Ok, that is all you get. It is very limited. What they are showing is on the Pixel. It is not even availavle in Nougat 7.0. It is Samsungs first attempt to do it themselves with their own launcher. You will have to wait for the next update for that. If you really like that functionality Nova Launcher does a great job with the long press options.

    People get mad about it because then they have to set up everything again. Which you should not have to do. You don't have to do this on Apple devices.

    I'm debating not updating. Runs fine the way it is.

    I've always done a factory reset with an OS update but things seem to be fine with this update. I'm gonna hold off doing a reset unless there are issues...Way too much hassle.

    Thanks, that makes sense and I totally agree with you, you should not have to. Unfortunately in the Android world sometimes that is the only option left. It can be a very time consuming process depending on your setup. Also, if everything is not backed up properly you could lose some valuable things. It just kind of sucks if I make that recommendation and I get totally bashed like it is my fault. Maybe I am just too sensitive☺

    Omg nougat on the S8 is great. After I downloaded and applied the update I wiped my phone and it feels brand new.

    It's so much faster and everything is more smooth. Even when it's not in "performance" mode. Loving the new colors and stuff too.

    When I pull down the notification shade (all the way), it has a search area (search phone and scan for nearby decices). It won't let me interact with it. It says apps not installed etc. Any ideas?

    Upgrade killed my wifi. Wifi comes on and then turns off on its own following completion of upgrade. Seems to not be an isolated issue as i have seen a few questions on the site related to the same issue.

    I am glad most everyone is having a successful update. I have been using Nougat on the Verizon S7 edge for almost 4 months now. If anyone has any questions or problems I will do my best to answer and help.
    Can you change the background color of notifications?

    Unfortunately you cannot. Using a theme will change many things, but not the notifications. There are no settings to change them either. They are a little white aren't they

    I had the same problem but a reboot seems to have fixed it.

    Edit: Spoke too soon, LED not working for me either. Worked once after reboot then stopped again.

    Anyone else with LED issues?
    I overlooked the simplest fix. I'm using Textra, and all I had to do was uninstall/reinstall and now it works. Thank God!

    Hope you find the fix for yours!
