Android 7.0 Nougat: all the new features
posted by Daniel P. / Aug 23, 2016, 8:17 AM
Google took us by surprise with a sudden announcement of the next Android version back in March, and fast forward five months, the Android 7.0 Nougat release is already available to install on your Nexus device.
While it might not spook the mobile industry to the core, it is certainly intriguing that the new 7.0 version, codenamed Nougat, is hitting Nexus handsets while the phones running Android 6.0 Marshmallow are still barely in the double digits of market share. If one of Google's aims was to show the value of the Nexus brand of phones, that's certainly been achieved too, as those are the only handsets that you can toy around on with two Android versions almost nobody has yet.
Are there any other new features except the ones that were present in the developer preview? Well, check out most of the final new features in Android 7.0 Nougat that are fit to print in the slideshow below.

Pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of Display calibration and Screen zoom Since those are features basically only enthusiasts

Android N slowly becoming a refined CyanogenMod. Awesome.

There is no "Calibrate Display" option on my 6P. Is PhoneArena doing copy and paste from previous articles?!?!

Lol, because I have been using a custom rom I feel like a lot of these features are old.

as they're even implemented by a lot of manufacturors in their own launchers etc... I'm only interested in screen "12. The Nightman cometh", there's a use dark theme option. I want THAT to work. Because I find this white infused FUgly. Then there's the bigger powerdrain of white on AMOled screens. Besides if they'd used more black or a darker UI then they wouldn't need "a night mode" in the first place. Sometimes those idiots create more problems with on thing and then patch and keep on patching instead of just doing it right from the start!

I feel for you, because it is a real shame. Here I'm with a $99 device from Moto running Android M.
