Install to Fix Problems & Improve Performance
If you're really struggling on Android Nougat, you'll probably want to manually install Android Oreo or download it soon after it arrives for your device.
Many Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, and Galaxy S7 Active users are struggling on Android Nougat. Android Oreo isn't perfect, but there's a very good chance it'll squash the bugs you're seeing and iron out the performance issues plaguing your phone.
In its change log for the update, Samsung notes that background services are limited to improve performance and battery life.
Galaxy S7 users are reporting improved performance on Oreo. One user goes as far as to say Android Oreo is "blazing fast." Mileage will vary person-to-person, but this kind of feedback is great to see.
Android updates, particularly major releases like Oreo, have the potential to fix common performance issues like severe battery drain, random reboots, user interface lag, and issues with connectivity like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular data.
And if your device is tied to a carrier like AT&T or Verizon, there's a good chance your provider will tack on additional bug fixes. They typically do.
If you can't find a fix for your Android Nougat problem(s), you should give Android Oreo a go sooner rather than later.
