When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 16/02/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

@Victrix ... Well, you must be lucky ... Still waiting here!  But still no word from Optus either, they're really pathetic in being forthcoming with any updates. Stock HTC 10 from Optus, same CID ... Still waiting for the update!

Maybe the update was stopped again for Optus devices. But I can still see the update live on the HTC server. Maybe its just made not visible to the device's software update app.

 

Well everything works 100% so far so theres no issues. Hopefully this feedback will help Optus and HTC release the update again.

@Victrix @Dc20011 -- I've managed to pull the OTA and apply manually; now have Nougat running.  As the lack of support and information from Optus is just pathetic.

I have had no issues so far with it, it is running so much faster now - UI is so much more responsive.

@OGriobhtha yeah the update makes the phone much better. I especially like the "Touch Autoexposure" setting in the camera now. I really missed this from the HTC M7 days.

How about you update your CUSTOMERS in relation to the software update for the HTC 10! How hard is it to contact the software testing team, finding out what the problem is and a forecast of roll-out then advising your CUSTOMERS. We spend hundreds of dollars on a phone only to be treated like absolute rubbish. How hard is it to do the things I've asked?

@Victrix ... Yes, and finally the camera brightness slider is more responsive as well; but still prefered the M8 camera ease of use.  The adaptive brightness is nice.  A massive step up! Pity I had to take the manual step of updating it, where people are 10 days left waiting after the "late February" expected release! Optus do need to be more proactive in updating customers, or I feel they will lose them to other providers who actually give them a more realistic time frame & or actually update them.

@Pete @MattJ I have a Galaxy S4 and have a software update pending download, all it tells me is its size and it says stability improvements. Is this a patch to 5.0.1 or is it likely to be 5.1.1? The download is approx 285Mb in size.
