There’s a delay to the software release due to an error found while testing. Samsung are working on this as top priority however we don’t have a release date at this time. Keep an eye on this post for updates @Fatboyting66

Dont install Nougat on s6     slows it down hopelessly.   If the phone is ok now leave it alone

To date I have yet to get this update although the community moderators have said this is now available up to a month ago and in some instances even more recently.  While I truly respect the strict measures to ensure a smooth and responsible rollout...I've had the Nougat OS more than a year on my Nexus 9 tablet and on my OnePlus-3 for 6 months.

 

I've always been underwhelmed with the S6 and I was hoping to breathe some new life in to it with the Android 7 update.  But as with everything Three Mobile decisions are always counter-intuitive and to the detriment on their customers.

 

Oh wow sorry I forget my place!

Hi Bogaitc, did you get the phone from us? Is the phone unlocked? I'll get this checked out.

What don't you like about it @deshou? I have Nougat on my S6 Edge at the mo and really like it, although the notification bar took a little getting used to.

I can see why it would take a bit of getting used to. But there are quite a few positives to the update too 👍

I find the battery life better as it has that data saver mode.

I use Swiftkey keyboard, so didn't notice the stock keyboard changing.

I agree, the notification bar was the most frustrating thing, but I'm used to it now.

I'm okay with the stock camera, especially swiping up and down to switch between the front and rear cameras, that is super handy on the go. To be fair, I don't use the camera a huge amount though.

 

So all in all I'm happy with it, but each to their own Smiley Happy

I have to agree with @Three_Sheena . My brother has an S6 Edge, running Nougat and he's glad he updated it. Loves everything that changed!!

Can you send me a PM with the IMEI, please? I'll look into this further. You can get the IMEI by dialling *#06#.

Hi @carlsoxley, has your phone been unlocked? Are you getting an error message when you try to do it?  👍

Hi Karen, I don't think that my phone has been unlocked, as I have never requested it. There is no error message it just says that the phone is up to date, however still running Android 6.0.1.
