    I don't feel that Nougat is a big deal. Nothing earth shattering about it. Having said that, I will also say that I have not had a single problem with it. Phone runs smoothly. Battery life is acceptable, but I don't think it is better than MM. Not worse either.

    I have a S7 Edge running nougat and I also have a U.S unlocked Edge running marshmallow. I like them both and both have exactly the same battery life which is amazing. I get about 4 hours of screen time on each phone on every charge. I do plan on leaving the U.S unlocked Edge on marshmallow at least for several months.

    Enjoying Nougat thoroughly. The Battery Life and Smoothness are worth the upgrade, but you MUST do a full format after updating.

    I would never say must. I have always upgraded my phones and have never had any problems.

    Still on MM. Nothing I'm thrilled about in N, so going to give it a lot of time to settle before upgrading. The battery life of my S7E on MM is by far the best I've ever had, so am worried that will take a hit, as some are reporting. I didn't upgrade my Nexus 6P to N either. Way too many issues with N when it first came out on the 6P.

    Great question @magerb, I currently have Marshmallow on my PRIV and it seems to be working fine for me and i quite enjoy it so I'm not 'chomping at the bit' to upgrade. BUT i do love a couple features included in Nougat like the added security and battery saving functionality. So i would say Nougat is better simply because of that but not essential.

    Hi... My Galaxy 7 got updated to Nougat... and now I am Having problems building my game from Unity 5.4 to my phone... I can still build the same game to my Tablet and older Galaxy with Marshmellow... I tried installing Nougat in Android Studio but it wont Download...

    1.) If I install Unity 5.5 will this allow me to build for Nougat?

    2.) Or is there an easy way to downgrade my galaxy back to Marshmallow?

    U say that after update everyone should reset the phone?

    Yep, in my opinion you should reset after every major Android update. I auve been burnt way too many times by Android updates that made the phone wonky due to not doing a full wipe.

    IMO, if you want the best experience do a full factory reset then just restore your setup, the phone will run faster.

    Best way I think to use smart switch and emergency software recovery and initialization

    Nougat all day. If only because I had the Note 7 first; the Note 7, with Grace UI was great. Now the S7 Edge has much of that same functionality and more.
    Agreed. Don't miss my N7 quite as much now.

    Nougat for the win! Seems like a new phone. Best upgrade yet IMO. With themes you can get rid of most of the white.
    And we move forward on Android.

    The new notification system is way way way better on Nougat. Phone running like a champ after upgrade and factory reset. Week 2 on Nougat and just awesome.

    I like the changes in the Nougat update; especially the changes in the Settings control panel.

    Overall I like Nougat. I have an S7 and I think it did improve my phone. I noticed previously I needed to have background data restricted on my phone to get decent battery, and it still drained quite a bit while the phone wasn't in use. With the N update my battery barely drains when not on. I am able to get home and still have around 50% battery, even with some use of the phone throughout the day. Right now my battery is at 85% and it has been 5hr 38m since the last charge. Screen on time is only 22m though. Still my phone would be a lot more drained than 85% when it was still on MM. It'd probably be like 60% right now.

    I don't really have an opinion on the new notifications bar. I don't really like it any more or less than I did on MM. One of my news apps was not working properly with the updated notifications and I ended up disabling Notifications from that app. I do like the pull down settings a little better, mainly just the way it looks. Also I prefer the lock screen with N. I had to use a Lock Screen App with MM because I hated the font it used. I removed the Lock Screen App from my phone once I received the N update. Also for the most part the phone seems smoother. The only time I noticed it lagging a lot was when the battery was getting low and I was using several heavy applications. I think when I haven't been overloading the phone with tasks, it has been running better than it was on MM.

    UPDATE

    It has been almost 3 days since this conversation started. It seems like the thread is still going strong, but here are the results of our informal poll as of today. These are the results from the people that have installed Nougat on their device.

    22 people favor Nougat
    2 people favor Marshmallow
    7 people like both or don't have a preference

    There were a few that were on the fence as to whether or not they should update yet. Also, there were a few that have not had the Nougat update available to them yet.

    I have found everyone's comments quite interesting. I appreciate the time you have taken to express your thoughts. I will post the final results once this thread has died down.

    I love this community, you guy's/girl's rock!

    The 7.0 seems faster and smoother. I didn't do any kind of test there. More options for battery and screen resolution. I like it

    One thing I didn't see mentioned much here is the speed of the device and the increase with Nougat. When I turned animations off in developer options the device flies. I find it faster than Marshmallow.

    I kind of like then animation on Nougat but I might give that a try. Not off but bring it down to 0.5 from 1.

    Also, one more thing. My overnight standby battery is crazy good. About 3 to 4% drain in a 7 to 8 hour of sleep. My MM used to cause at least 15 to 18% battery lose overnight.

    NO. I don't like Nougat.

    I have update my Galaxy S7 to t and it sucks!!!
    1. The interface is all white. YAK!!!
    2. The pull down feature is so small and ALL white. You can not- almost - distinct what is theb source of the message (Yahoo acct? Gmail? Briefing? IT IS nothing like the previous version which was great.
    3. There is no way to make a call from Messages by swiping or by clicking on the Phone icon. It'll show the Phone page for a split of second and disappears. I can not make calls unless going to Phone; finding the name and clicking on the number.
    4. Probably more issues will pop up in a day or so..

    Suggestion:
    So - Google ! why not go back to the old nice interface of Marshmallow? Or at least create a button to have an option to us to choose which interface we wish to use? the new one or the old one?
    For those of us who want to use that old wonderful interface- let's the option. !!
    Fix the bugs quickly - or let us go back to the previous OS until all bugs and issues are resolved.

    NOUGAT is not an improvement on my Galaxy S7. It's a worse OS. And actually apps like Yahoo..and some others are SLOWER than before.

    What you listed above is not normal. Seems like you need a factory reset. No wonder you are hating it.
