Did you install the Android 7.0 Nougat beta update on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge?

Did you install the Android 7.0 Nougat beta update on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge?

Samsung outed the Android 7.0 Nougat beta for its spring flagships like the S7 or S7 edge already, and the TouchWiz of yesterday is apparently done with, at least in the settings, submenus and notifications shade. Oops, that's actually a lot, and when you add all the features that good guy Samsung brought over from Note 7 as a tribute to its fans, the new Samsung UX is shaping up to be a revelation.

The brand new SamsungOne font makes the fresh UX look very different and more minimalistic, the clean and simplified settings list brings back fond memories of the Note 7's Grace UX, and the extra Always-On screen options from the deceased phablet are also brought in to sooth the mourning a little bit. Samsung also brought over the new battery saver modes from the Note 7, but provided the screen resolution changes they contain as a standalone feature, too, and added different performance modes you can choose from, depending on what you want to do with your device. 

That is why we wanted to ask you if you were intrigued enough to install the Nougat update beta on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, or if you are still holding the fort, waiting with bated breath for the stable OTA rollout to hit your Galaxy in the not-so-distant future.

I installed it and this update is damn near ready for prime time. It's smooth and looks really good. Also letting the user take control of performance and screen res is clutch. I dialed back my screen res to 1080 and scaled back performance a bit and it's like a brand new battery got installed as well! I actually made it to a second day with moderate use... With a few more tweaks Sammy should have this update flowing to everyone's s7/s7 edge Pronto!

I'm super excited for the update as well! Unfortunately, however, I have AT&T, so I may end up flashing the unlocked version's ROM onto my phone so I don't have to wait until March for the update...

I don't think you can flash F version ROM on at&t version.
