Android Nougat is upon us, at least for those who have the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge in Nigeria. Yesterday, I was able to upgrade my device to Android 7.0. The download process took about 30 minutes because the upgrade file was about 1.2GB in size. After upgrading, I noticed a slight lag, but everything returned back to normal after a few minutes.
When it comes to the changes, almost everything has been revamped; there is a new notification panel interface, plus Samsung also included private mode and the blue light filter.
You also get an improved multi-window experience, Android Nougat style.
There is a setting that allows you to change your display from HD, FHD, and WQHD, which can help save your battery. Samsung also included a utility that helps you to choose a preferred operating mode.
Lastly, the settings, calls, messages and a couple of stock android apps have also undergone a UI change.
I haven’t had any bad experience so far, but it’s too soon to tell.
UPDATE: Corrected an error with the display size.
