Sprint rolls out Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

The Galaxy Note 5 is not the only Samsung smartphone that's getting Android 7.0 Nougat at Sprint these days. Many customers who bought the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ claim they have successfully captured the update as well.

Just like the Note 5 update, this is a fairly sizeable update that weighs in at 1.45GB, so make sure you have enough free storage left before attempting to upgrade. Sprint is pushing this OTA (over the air) in stages, so if it's not yet available on your Galaxy S6 edge+, then you should try again later.

Aside from the usual changes included in Android 7.0 Nougat, Samsung added some of its own. Lots of improvements have been made to the usability of the multi-window feature, as well as setting menu and usability of the Notification feature and Quick settings button.

The changelog also mentions the update makes space for installation of downloaded apps more efficient, while the speed of system upgrade and app installation has been significantly improved.

Keep in mind though that Android 7.0 Nougat will come with March security patch inside, which means the April update will arrive at a later date. Now let's see which US carrier will follow in Sprint's footsteps and provide Nougat updates for Samsung's high-end smartphones.
