Update Galaxy S6 since 17 hours on videotron with built G920W8VLU5DQD4, Telus one of the big company is not even able to release the updates before videotron, we should receive within a couple of hours, otherwise its really slow ...

Is there an update to Nougat for the LG G4? I just received an update last week that I was hoping was Nougat but it was a large update with a bunch of patches instead.

Just updated my Samsung S6 edge to nougat and the LED notification do not work when the phone is set to vibrate only or silent... the led notifications only work when sound it on. Anyone else facing same issue?

@darderb Yes I agree.  But the Update Schedule is finally updated.  S6 Edge got Android 7 on April 24th.  And there is no mention of S6 update yet again, after being removed previously.....

Nothing yet, keep an eye on this link for updates.  Mind you it's not updated until AFTER the updates happen, OR updates are posted and then removed.

Honestly, I would rather wait a bit longer if it meant a completely stable version of the OS would be available, but as we have seen in the past that is not usually the case. OEM's really need to press Google to adjust their update methods, there shouldn't be a 8 month waiting period for the OEM's to release updates. And yes, I do realise the S6 line is now 2 years old.

Also, what's the deal with security patch updates from Samsung/Telus? My latest is November 2016.

@TheRamsez 

That is an interesting site, i'm a bit surprised that even the smaller companies have released the update already. Virgin and Wind beat Telus to the update? Wow

Yeah, and if you look good, it's always last, it's ridiculous

@TelusSupport on Twitter just confirmed that it should be available.

May be a day or so before it is available to all devices on the network though.

I'm thinking the Telus Support Rep was incorrect

The Telus rep is likely going off of information currently available to them.

@Nighthawk I am sure the support rep was going off of information provided to them. Unfortunately the information provided to the rep was incorrect at that particular time.

I sent a tweet out to Telus Support and was referred to the update schedule, "as soon as we find out, we'll update our update schedule" So I guess we will just have to patiently wait for it.

It is anything, it is the only ones that we did not update the update, the others have since 2 days now!

I am having difficulty understanding the point of an update schedule that has nothing but dates that have passed

Its a bit annoying

It's a joke to waiting 1 week after all poeple to receive the same built...

Yes. An extra week wait for a buggy Samsung release is unacceptable.

I see that too.  I was under the impression from TheRamsez that the OTA was now live when he said it was "launched"

I guess I have to wait 4 more days for Nougat on my Samsing S6
