New to Android - Galaxy S7 Edge Arriving tomorrow!

I am a newly converted android user switching for and iPhone 6S plus to a Galaxy S7 Edge!

I have been an iPhone user since the iPhone 3GS and have only ever used an android very briefly with the Galaxy S2 which I didn't like so went back to iPhone.

I have an S7 Edge arriving tomorrow and I am wondering if anyone here can offer me any tips in regards to the switch over process or maybe some helpful tips on configuring my device for optimal performance.

I've gone all out and have already ordered a case and screen protectors for the device as well as a wireless charger.

My S7 edge is not tied to a network, it was purchased directly from Samsung unlocked.

Also, how long does it take Samsung to push out updates to their phones once they're available? I'm used to very regular updates on iOS.

So no one thinks I'm trolling:

The best places to start are...

1) Read the manual
2) Watch a ton of S7 videos on youtube
3) Read a ton of forum posts in the S7 forum and get involved
4) Read THIS to learn about moving to Android from IOS. There are many other articles on this topic... search them out on Google.
