Poll results: 40% of voters say Nougat is no good, 28% don't really care about Android's next name
Each major Android build comes with a dessert code name, each one starting with the next letter in the alphabet. For fans of Google's OS, the speculation and debating over what the next Android name might be has turned into a fun past-time with its own tense buildup. It may seem a trivial thing that we care about the name of an update as much as we do about the features it upgrades, but hey – no one is immune to hype.

It's fairly safe to say that not many were expecting a name like “Nougat” to be pinned on the next major Android build. In fact, many weren't sure what type of dessert it was. In any case – it's been announced, there is a statue, it's final. We decided to ask our readers how they feel about Android 7's name, here's how the vote went:

Do you like the name Nougat for Android 7?

Nougat is fine by me!
No! I will just pretend it's called Nutella for the next year
I really don't care what it's called

Since 95% of Android phones will never get any update and rest 5% only 1 year after the release, all Android users do is call names of the OS and get infected from malware ROFL.

For real. Samsung never got my tabpro 8.4 past 4.4, and still won't send it safety updates. I spent $400 on it based on pa recommendation. Never again.

Wow, the fact that Samsung has the highest customer satisfaction ratings, was voted the most trusted brand in the US, that Android is by far the most popular mobile OS, must really really be burning you badly.

Well a large amount of people dont care about updates. All they care about is that their phone runs smoothly.

No, should call it Android NoGet. Poor Android users. Some will get it 2 years after the release and most won't get it as all.

The funny things is Android 4 jellybean can do more things than the current iPhone. Filemanager any one . Apple fan are really insecure, why would it matter to you whether some Android user like iPhone or not?. You guy spend way too much time defending a $700 expenditure made some time ago.

I thought Marshmallow was the worst android name ever, but this one takes the cake.
