I found today that A5 2017 dont need to push home button to insert fingerprint. Just put finger on home button and it read it and activate screen. I miss that function so much on S7 :(

Been using this nougat from beta then reset when official.
Battery & network worse than marshmallow plus get regular lag when typing. The battery used be at 70% at end of day now it's 20% no matter what apps are installed or power mode.
Had a poor data signal last week but someone next to me with an iPhone 6 had a full 4g. We're on the same mobile contract!
I reset phone etc but had to tether off the iPhone. This was very humiliating lol.

I reckon Samsung have reduced the battery capability & network to make the S8 tempting to S7 users. Considering the corruption at Samsung & their new edgelit QLED tv's are very poor I've gone off Samsung.

Yeah I'm experiencing the same sort of issues, especially battery life! I'm a pretty heavy user but recently I've started using the phone less and I'm still getting a fair amount of battery drain, checking battery usage it looks no worse than MM ?

My experience of Nougat is the polar opposite of yours. My battery is great, it is super quick and my network is as good as it's ever been.

If you can't fix yours with a factory reset, then I suggest that you get the phone itself looked at because the behaviour that you describe isn't normal in my experience

Dunno what to say. I didn't have any problems with nougat on my s7e (MTL). Did a totally clean install tho(not a factory reset, but flashed from the PC - stock ROM). Friend of mine whom updated from 6.0.1 have similar experience. He also tried factory reset - same. The difference is that he got s7. Both are exynos. He have your problem, I have better battery life(especially in standby) and tons better performance/smoothness. :/

I won't be surprised that this is the main reason why they delayed the rollout by so much and maybe they still have problematic devices.

    All these people commenting saying they're going back to MM is breaking my heart... You opted IN to test this firmware and report back to Samsung on any issues and provide logs etc to aid them in polishing nougat, yet you all jump in and post about how you got the OTA then 2 hours later cry that it's too leggy and missing features and not performing as you'd expect...

    If you didn't want to have an unstable software on your phone, don't opt in to things like this.

    Inb4, yes I am on the nougat beta

    FAQ - Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge) Beta 1/2/3

    PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! THX!

    Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge) Nougat Beta

    :confused:Who can update to Beta 2/3 etc?
    Currently only officially registered via the Samsung Beta Program Users are able to upgrade OTA to the newest betas

    :(Can I register for the Samsung Beta Program?
    No. Currently the beta program is full and no new users are allowed into the program

    :angel:Will Samsung extend the Beta Program?
    Only Samsung knows. There are rumours that Samsung might extend the Beta Program to more countries. But this is a big maybe. So only time will tell.

    :(Can someone share a link for Beta 3 so I can update my leaked Beta that I flashed via ODIN?
    No. Since Beta 3 is not a full firmware, but an update, there is no single Download available.

    :(Can someone provide the Update File?
    It seems that it would be possible, but with a lot of work including downgrading, ADB, fastboot commands etc etc so this seems unlikely to happen. Also it is important to have TWO Update Files one from Beta 1 to Beta 2 and then from Beta 2 to Beta 3. Just an Update from Beta 2 to Beta 3 will not work.

    :(Can I use a Samsung Account from a friend/stranger to upgrade my device?
    No. Officially registered Accounts are also connected to the IMEI of the device. So its of no use.

    :cool:Can I use a custom ROM and get Beta 3
    Of course you can install a Custom ROM which includes Beta 3. But be aware that it will trip KNOX and void warranty of your device.

    :good:Can I downgrade to Marshmallow?
    Yes. Just use Smartswitch on your PC/Mac and do a Recovery

    :eek:Will I be able to use Beta 1 until the official Nougat Update comes?
    Probably. Currently there seems no expiration date on the betas.

    :fingers-crossed:Can I update from Beta 1 to the final Version once it is released?
    Yes. It might work via OTA, but for sure you are able to upgrade via SmartSwitch on your PC/Mac.

    All you guys registered in Beta posting pics and etc. none of you could save the OTA file before updating?!?!

    No one saved beta-2, now no one save beta-3. I am getting seriously frustrated now. What are we even doing here?

    You are so happy to get the OTAs and didn't even think for a moment about the thousands of people who are not registered and could use your help. Sad...

    Sorry, just feeling bad for being stuck at beta-1.

    Stop whining, ok?

    It's your own fault, you didn't register in time for the beta and not everyone wants to root their device for your laziness! :eek:
