    I'm looking back at the old S7 forums and everyone is having issues with the nougat update. They don't even have a choice and have to upgrade to a slower OS. Is Samsung doing this on purpose to slow down devices? This is why I'm afraid to try Samsung again...

    Nougat has been running just fine on my S7 Edge and it's been on there since it was first available by T-Mobile. For those that are having problems it could be an app on their phone that is not playing nicely with Nougat but Samsung phones are not doomed. I switched over from the iPhone to a S4, Note 5, Note 7, S7 Edge and not a problem with any of them. My Note 7 functioned perfectly and I hated giving it up but due to the recall I returned it and went with the S7 Edge.

    Usually, only people with issues are doing the posting, especially if it's a thread named something like "The Nougat update killed my S7". Most people don't check in just to say everything is great since the last upgrade.

    Everyone or just the people on the thread? As forum posters we sometimes think we represent the majority.

    I had nougat on my 7edge and didn't have any problems. I have nougat also on my LG v20 which also has no problems. Certainly don't think Samsung is doomed by any means.

    I have Nougat for the last 2 weeks and it is working flawless. I am using the Blackberry launcher and its BB suite of apps without a single problem. I didn't had to do any master reset. So far, so good!

    Have the Nougat update and love it! MM was a complete disaster and almost turned me off to Android.

    You are? Unless I'm misreading, this is the first mention of the S8 in this thread. Am I confused?

    Another Nougat update without reset here, just cleared the cache partition. Been working just fine with zero issues. "Everyone", "doomed"? Way off base on both.

    By similar fate do you mean that for the vast majority of people the update went well and the phone ran as well or better. If that is the case then you are correct.
    While i have had no experience with android updates (new convert here), i have seen my fair share of iOS updates and there are always those who have issues, but for most folks it works out well, and for most of the ones with issues once they do a full erase and reset they also have good success.

    The nougat update has added an hour of SOT to my S7E and it is functioning smoothly and flawlessly with no factory reset involved. In fact it's the smoothest OS update I've had on an Android phone yet. I've even gone back to TouchWiz from Nova.

    I'm also in the 'Nougat just made my phone better' and 'hadn't had an issue' wagon. Only 'issue' was that it was sluggish right after the upgrade, but a reboot fixed that and never looked back.

    Not sure what everyone's issues are. But the Nougat upgrade for my S7E has been amazing. It's way faster than marshmallow, battery is better and all the visual changes are quite nice.

    Could be something in their configuration. Certain apps or launchers might not be compatible. Clearing system cache every once in awhile is good practice.

    Getting Nougat for me was like getting a new phone. Sucks people are having problems.

    Count me as another person happy with the Nougat upgrade. My only complaint is that Samsung replaced the Google dialer with their own -- I wish we had the one on the Pixel that shows a red background and "suspected spam caller" when the scammers and robocallers are ringing. But that's just a niggle; it really has been a nice upgrade for me.

    I do have to say, though, that I do hate the now-forced pop-up notifications. That I DO miss from before. Now you can't disable them unless you disable all notifications, which sucks. It's either get pop-up crap or don't get notified at all.

    Yeah, LG Phones are unkillable in standby (I think I kept a G4 in a drawer for a week and a half in Airplane mode without using it and it was still going when I took it out). On-screen time, however... well, let's just say it's a good thing they're good in standby.

    As of August 2016, Samsung had shipped over 13 million S7Es. By those outdated sales numbers, even if a quarter million (250,000) people had issues, it would still account for less than 2%. That leaves ±98% of owners (or 12,740,000) being happy with or not noticing their update, which we can all agree is "pretty close to 100%".
    "LOTS" is a very relative term, that really doesn't mean anything if it's compared properly to the whole.

    Of course the sales numbers are higher than what I quoted, but i don't have more current data than that.
