I have been to Samsung's websited and confirmed the Nougat update is out for Galaxy S7 phones. WHY is it taking so long for Telus to release it for their clients? I will definetly consider this next time I think about buying a locked phone with them. I guess buying unlocked is the way to go from here.
A pissed off costumer.
Only Samsung's American website says it's released there. Samsung Canada has no announcements on releases yet. This isn't on Telus. For many years Samsung has had the reputation of being one of the worst companies for releasing updates. Averaging 6-9 months behind Google. If you want updates faster, avoid Samsung.
This is not about Samsung!
Late update release in Canada is caused by Providers, please provide people correct information.
Samsung announced that OS update on their phone will be faster, and they have done it this year for Galaxy S7, but Canada is still slow because of carriers. this is not just a guess! here is the link from Telus:
@AliM - As I have said previously in this discussion, only Samsung's American website says it's released there. Samsung Canada has no announcements on releases yet.
Please watch those websites for the official announcement from Samsung for Nougat in Canada.
This is a forum thread dealing specifically with updates for the Galaxy S7. Please explain to me how your self-righteous trolling helps that topic.
If you're so superior that you've purchased something other than a Samsung, why are you wasting your time preaching to others? Are you really so sad and lonely that this is your pass time?
You're offering nothing constructive; in fact you're advocating people void their warranty by rooting and running third party roms.
Run along and play, adults are talking.
Eastlink rolling nougat out as well and from the Telus software update web page there is no even plans to update anything in the near future. Maybe Telus is done with the updates for this year, or they need to update the page. How hard is to do that, if you at lest have an idea of your plans in near future. My guess is that they didn't even start testing Nougat yet which means the other carriers will start pushing nougat to gs6 before Telus is done for gs7.
As stated above, it's on Samsung, not Telus. You will note that none of the Canadian carriers have it yet. Once Samsung Canada decides to release it to the carriers, which could be months knowing Samsung, then Telus can provide a release date.
That's why I turfed Samsung (well ok, this and the fact that my Note 7 could have burned my house down) and got a Pixel XL. Fast updates and no Samsung bloatware.
