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 31/01/2017. 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.

@Sam_D I seem to have resolved the problem by formatting my SD card and factory resetting my phone. Woke up today and phone was usable as per normal.

Can't wait for the Galaxy S7 edge update. Need it ASAP!!!

Phone has been freezing, randomly rebooting and just slow since the December 2016 update.

Hey,

I seem to be having trouble with getting wifi calling to work on my s7. Where i leave there is poor reception but i do have nbn. I am connect to my wifi and have set wifi calling to wifi preferred but when i make a call, the call seems to still be poor. Sometimes cut out. Am i using it right?

 

Also i am excited to see nougat is finally ready for optus testing. I know this goes against others thoughts but no hurry. Better to have a well built and stable Operating system then a unstable and broken one Smiley Wink

@RonBurgundy if your not familiar with flashing firmware on your phone I don't recommend doing it as you may brick your phone or void your warranty. But if you choose to do it you need to get the latest Odin software and the BTU firmware from either sammobile (website) or samfirm  (program). Backup your phone. Install samsung drivers. Launch Odin, place appropriate files in the proper place and flash. Phone also needs to be in download mode. Plenty of tutorials on YouTube. Do this at your own risk.

I have now official nougat on my S7 working flawlessly with the instructions above.

@CommodoreVT - Are you experiencing issues with your WiFi when trying to use it or is it just when you're trying to use the WiFi calling feature?
