Don't Install Nougat If You Haven't Prepared
Now let's move to some reasons why you might want to avoid the Samsung Galaxy S7 Nougat when it arrives for your device. Here's our first tip. Don't install Android Nougat on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge if you haven't prepared. This goes for new Android Nougat bug fix builds as well.
It's impossible to predict how the Nougat update will impact your devices performance. Many of you will come away with performance that's on par with or better than Marshmallow. Others might see a decline. This uncertainty is precisely why you'll want to prepare yourself, and your device, for Nougat.
We've put together a step-by-step guide that will take you through the process we use before we install an Android update on our devices.
We recommend checking in with IT (if you have an IT department) before you install because Nougat could have a negative impact on enterprise software and services.
We also recommend making a backup of your important files, just in case something goes wrong with the installation.
Take your time with Android 7.0 Nougat. Do some prep work and you should be able to avoid some major headaches.
