@just2wikid Did the Telus version include the update to fix the quiet notifications? I sideloaded a different version on mine which DOES include the fix before TELUS released theirs. I assume it doesn't, being the fix came as a second OTA (I had to sideload it after sideloading the main Nougat update).
If you only have to wait a week, then consider yourself lucky. Carriers normally bundle the security updates with the regular updates. Meaning, you are waiting ~6 months for security updates on Android. That is, unless you own a Pixel or Nexus device, then they are monthly.
When will TELUS release the Android OS update to Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy S7? Samsung released Android 7.1.1 January 12th after a beta program so when will TELUS offer this highly anticipated update?
Samsung hasn't officially announced Nougat yet. Telus will be waiting for them to do that. Unless Samsung radically changed their process, they're ususally 6-9 months delayed in releasing updated from when Google does.
There may be a delay as well > http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_halts_galaxy_s7_nougat_update_rollout-news-22777.php
Samsung announced it yesterday officially, so it looks like the delay is over.
It'll be interesting to see how quickly Telus can deliver it to us now seeing there's been an extensive beta period ahead of the general release.
if it's sometime in march then i will probably be using a different phone if i even renew my contract... the samsung s7 edge has been a total nightmare and i was hoping that a firmware update might fix the issue....the amount i use my phone it would better suit my getting a pay as you go phone rather than dumping $90+taxes every month i could easily get away with a pay as you go and put 25 dollars on it every month.. the only reason i kept up with my plan was my mother's health issues which i can say she is no longer having as she passed last sunday so i don't really need my phone anymore
