HTC 10 Nougat update delayed for mainland Europe

HTC 10 Nougat update delayed for mainland Europe
HTC 10 owners in mainland Europe might be a wee bit jealous of HTC 10 owners in the states. It seems that while the latter have received their update to Android 7.0, Nougat remains elusive for Europeans living in the mainland. HTC's Product and Service Director Graham Wheeler sent out a tweet today, noting that Android 7.0 has been sent to HTC 10 owners in the U.K., Russia, Middle East and Turkey.

Unfortunately, Wheeler had to send out another tweet saying that HTC had halted the update to mainland Europe. While he didn't have an exact reason as to why the update was being delayed, he did say that HTC was looking at some technical issues. Wheeler now expects the update to hit mainland Europe in February.

Android 7.0 features an enhanced version of  Doze. When your phone is idol for a decent period of time, the apps are turned off thus prolonging standby time and increasing battery life. The latest emoji lineup, Unicode 9.0, can be found, and seamless updates allow a new build of Android to download in the background. Once your phone is rebooted, the updated OS takes over your handset. Multi-tasking multi-screen allows users to view two or more apps at the same time, and a "Close All" button shuts all active apps with a single tap.   

If you live in mainland Europe with your HTC 10, there is no need to be terribly upset. Android 7.0 is only delayed, not cancelled, and is just a month away from being available for your HTC 10. We will continue to keep an eye on the situation, because you never know when all of the roadblocks are suddenly removed and you're enjoying that delicious Nougat filling on your phone.

I swear to God, I'm never buying an HTC phone again. This is ridiculous!

Sony, Samsung and HTC have all reported bugs with Nougat. I can't post links but refer to Vodafone's Australia's weekly software update for example. I'm actually thinking there is an issue with Nougat. It's too much of a coincidence for all of these OEM's to cop the blame

I've seen those articles however Nougat for the HTC 10 seems to be stable in the markets where it has been released. I see no reason why they keep delaying Nougat for Europe only.

That's strange, I'm in Europe and I just bought an HTC 10 last week. I got Android 7 update on first software update. Everything seems to be working fine.

not for me, my phone seems laggy after the update, especially when I am using "Play Music", also BBM started disconnecting from the servers often, with frequent crashes...will factory rest the device soon probably

Makes me glad I bought the unlocked HTC 10 from their website. I got the Nougat update almost 2 months ago. Been working great with no issues. Carrier locked phones are definitely not the way to go.

Really? I'd expect the unlocked version of such stockish android skin to have been updated months ago globally. Carrier locked version, yeah, that's another bloatware story...

I got an update about a week ago and since then I haven't noticed a single problem, it runs like butter.
