Any word on a potential release date for nougat? Extremely dissatisfied with Samsungs lack of support with the U variants. Makes me want to avoid Samsung products here on out.

It makes me think that they're waiting to synchronize the S8 and S7u software releases... So perhaps the S7u will get all the S8 features before the carrier versions?

I know the SM-G930VL got Nougat today. No Wi-Fi calling or video call but it did finally get it. It's the Straight Talk unlocked version.

It's pretty stupid that an UNLOCKED version doesn't have the latest software, so dumb of Samsung to do that.
Also None of the Verizon versions of S7 has the updated firmware too, so far only T-Mobile in the US has 7.0
May be AT&T does too

All the major carriers have it. Verizon just got it about a week ago.

I bought this thinking 7.0 was on it, and quite disappointed that it's not, and it's not even available.

Great
Where do I get the Verizon Rom? And how is your experience so far?
Is it pretty smooth? Any lag and what about the battery life?

Hmm, this is going to root the phone, I don't want to root it, as it will decrease it's value. I will wait for another week or two if there is no update to 7.0 I will sell it

what? no, just scroll down (bottom of first post) to where it says "return to stock" and follow the instructions there. you don't have to be rooted to install another official samsung rom. and also fwiw even if you do end up rooting you can always reinstall stock rom without tripping knox (as implied in the tutorial).

Just like he said but when you download the Verizon firmware, make sure you use CSC and not the HOME CSC when you flash. Home will keep your data but I'm not sure how it'll react coming from a different carrier.
