Glad to see this getting released more and more in the U.S... Wonder how long greedy Verizon and failing Sprint will take?

Can't you buy unbranded phones in the US from other (non-carrier) retailers?

Ah, that sucks. But at least you don't get all the T-Mobile crap. I really hate branded phones.

T-Mobile is not bad when it comes to bloatware, if you compare it to Verizon and AT&T.

Well not all odds us care. I buy my phone because I like it, not because of updates.

What exactly makes iOS a bad OS? Although due to Apples conservative approach, it can be boring at times, but it's very smooth, reliable, and stable (excluding iOS 8). I enjoying using iOS, and when I use android for a long period of time, I can appreciate why people love the iOS approach to software. Please explain the iTard OS.

No, it hasn't. Stock Nougat has. Samsung modifies it down to the framework, making it a different entity.

I do wish Google had a way to give immediate updates to non nexus/pixel devices. The carrier testing and skins, make it take forever. Apple keeps it simple, but you get the updates immediately.

Do my eyes deceive me, or does Nougat bring with it Samsung Cloud for backup?!?!?

Yes, you get 15GB of Samsung Cloud storage. Did the AT&T update this morning, took about 90 minutes.

Now some 10.3 for my iPhone, and I'm up to date. September can't come fast enough.

Took almost 90 min to complete update. So far has some nice cosmetic features. We'll see what other nice things are lurking inside and how batery life is affected as time goes on.

Updated my S7 to Nougat and the AT&T update last night. The battery performance is indeed worse than Marshmallow. What concerns me more is one of those updates blew away my call history. Updates are not meant to be destructive. Not a big deal since all of my history gets backed up, but I've never seen this happen with previous updates going back to my S4. Has anyone else experienced this behavior?

Ok, they've mysteriously returned. I have no idea what caused it.
