4 Reasons Not to Install Galaxy S7 Oreo & 10 Reasons You Should



Don't Install If You Aren't Prepared

Don't Install If You Aren't Prepared

So those are the best reasons, in our opinion, to install Android Oreo on your Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, or Galaxy S7 Active right now or soon after the OTA lands. Here are a few reasons to consider waiting. 

You can't predict what kind of performance you'll get out of Android Oreo. Some of you might see a performance boost while others will run into performance issues. This is why we always tell people to prepare ahead of time. A little prep work will go a long way toward preventing issues. 

We've put together a step-by-step guide that will take you through the process we use before we hit install on new Android software like Oreo. 

If you don't have a ton of time to commit to the pre-installation process make sure all of your data is backed up via Smart Switch, Samsung Cloud, or a third-party service. 

Data loss is rare, but you'll want to be extremely careful with an update of this size.

    The only problem I’ve had after the update was a wifi authentication failure after it worked fine for several days. Rebooting my router and my S7 did nothing, and neither did “forgetting” the connection and re-entering my password. What finally did the trick was changing the wifi channel in my router. It was set to auto-select and I randomly picked channel 11 instead. Since then, I haven’t had the issue anymore.
