The Samsung Galaxy Tab Nougat update is starting to make progress and today we want to outline some reasons to, and not to, install Android 7.0 Nougat the second it arrives for your Galaxy tablet.
Samsung started off slowly but the company’s Android 7.0 Nougat release is making up for lost time.
The company’s Android 7.0 Nougat update is rolling out in force to flagship phones like the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy Note 5 and it’s also rolling out to the company’s flagship tablets like the Galaxy Tab S2.
Samsung is starting with the Galaxy Tab S2 but the company plans to release Android Nougat to the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen sometime in the first half of the year.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nougat update is rolling out to the 8-inch and 9-inch models in the United States and Europe bringing new features, tweaks, and fixes to the popular devices. It’s a sizable update for these slates and it’s one that most of you will want to download shortly after it arrives.
That said, some of you might want to wait a few days, maybe even a few weeks before installing the Galaxy Tab Nougat update.
To help you make a decision, we are going to take you through some reasons to, and not to, install Android 7.0 Nougat on your Galaxy Tab today.
Install Nougat If You Want to Improve Your Security
If you value your security, you'll probably want to consider installing the Android Nougat update soon after it arrives for your Galaxy Tab.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Android Nougat upgrade also brings the company's April security update. Samsung's April security update is loaded with patches for potential exploits. It also includes some important patches from Google.
While the initial batch of Galaxy Tab Nougat updates are arriving with the April patch, upcoming releases could feature the May security update, June security update, and so on. Google and Samsung roll out monthly patches to address potential issues.
If you didn't get or simply failed to download a recent security update, you'll likely need to download it/them before you can install Nougat on your tablet.
