[Poll] How are you liking Oreo on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge?

At this point, Samsung has rolled out the Galaxy S7 Oreo update in most countries around the world. The company put Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners through a rather excruciating wait for what is supposed to be its last major upgrade. Perhaps that’s the reason Samsung took its time, wanting to make sure it doesn’t leave S7 and S7 edge users with a sour taste by letting problems slip through on the newer software. In any case, the delay has disappointed many, especially since Samsung didn’t take so long to release the last major update for the Galaxy S6.

How’s the Galaxy S7 Oreo update working for you?

But the Galaxy S7 Oreo update is now available for many, so here’s what we wanted to know: How are you liking Oreo on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge? Has the wait been worth it, or does the update not offer nearly as much as the time the company took to make it official? Are there bugs or issues you’ve faced, perhaps with performance or battery life, or is everything running well enough that you’re ready to forgive Samsung for taking so long?

Tell us how Oreo is working for you on your S7 or S7 edge by voting in the poll below (you can select multiple answers) and expanding on your experience in the comments section (for example, if there’s a bug you’re facing, give us a few details on what it is).

I have a Galaxy S7 Edge model SM-G935FD from Saudi Arabia (KSA). After I had enough time waiting for them to realize that there was a new firmware to be published, I installed the Russian firmware. Also it made me angry to see how many updates Russian Rom received and how many mine received. Anyways… For now the battery is better along with the speed of the device. For me not much things are added with the new update, only the edge lightning is worth to try. But definitely speed and battery time is better. One thing that took my… Read more »

Do you think this is something inherent to the Australian version of the update Tokher or do you think you got lucky? I am toying with the idea of upgrading my GS7 to Oreo (i have stock fw) but I can’t be sure it is worth the trouble.

People asking “when, when?”, we don’t know, just have a little patience and wait, it will come these days. You are like babies.
And for those who already received it, plese post some feedback. How is the phone? Battery? I heard that there is a problem with incoming calls ring (the phone does not always ring).

Could you PLEASE share your opinions about;
Battery life
Device heating.

And othee features bugs and things you’ve found missing important. And please stop where is my update comment, it’s helping nobody including who’s asking. Thank you.

If the device is heating more, it means it is burning more battery. If the vattert life is bad I won’t update and enjoy the nougat for 3+ years. Thanks.

Just received the update in Pakistan. I’m loving it. I was anxiously waiting for this update as I already had seen these features in my wife’s S8. Just love the edge lighting on notifications and swipe up home screen for apps drawer and swipe down for notification (had to set though). Great!

ON ME, WORKS GREAT after the 1th day of usage, i like the design, but i wanted, some new wallpapers maybe, beside the ones that the S7 has, it runs smooth in compare to NOUGAT.

Loving it so far! Got the none edge version, Netherlands unlocked. Phone feels faster in all apps – and transitions are smoother and faster. Some new features are also great (volume buttons to adjust audio instead of call volume) are really great to have… But it did cost me battery life… On lollipop i would get 18-20h and i think ive lost 2… Just means i have to be stricter on what does and doesnt use battery in the background. I still get through a work day and need to recharge during dinner to make it to nigh time, regardless… Read more »

Yep, almost the same opinion. I don’t like to get less battery life. It’s supposed to last longer and be optimized. I rolled back to Nougat. The changes are just a few so they are not worth a few hours of battery life.
My Nougat is running silky smooth. I don’t have the need to update.

UK unlocked s7 roll out has happened this morning and the difference in smoothness is noticeably.

Do like how they carried over the swipe up and down for apps draw and notification respectively from the s8 onwards build
