Samsung Galaxy Nougat Problems: 5 Things to Know (2018)



The Samsung Galaxy Android Nougat update delivers some exciting changes, but it’s also plagued with a myriad of problems including abnormal battery drain, poor first and third-party app performance, finicky GPS, busted Wi-Fi, and broken Bluetooth connectivity.

Samsung Galaxy Nougat problems continue to pile up as we push into 2018. Galaxy S8 keyboard problems recently made headlines, but Nougat issues go beyond problems with the keyboard and the Galaxy S8.

Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8Galaxy S7Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Tab, and the owners of other Galaxy-branded devices still lingering around on Android Nougat are complaining about performance issues, problems with apps, and various other bugs.

With that in mind, we want to take a broad look at the Android Nougat issues affecting Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

This guide to Galaxy Nougat problems provides a look at the current climate, some resources for those of you running into trouble, and a peek at what’s next from Google and Samsung.

Prepare for Android Nougat Updates

The first thing you need to know about Samsung Galaxy Android Nougat problems is that they’re extremely unpredictable.

While many Galaxy smartphone and tablet users will emerge from the Nougat installation process without a headache, others will encounter small bugs and/or major issues with the update.

This is why we recommend doing some prep work before you install an Android Nougat update on your phone or tablet. A little preparation can go a long way toward preventing issues.


To help, we’ve put together a game plan that will take you some of the steps to take before installing Android Nougat on your Galaxy device.

You don’t need to take every single step but (at the very least) you’ll want to make sure you’ve backed up all of your important files.

If you’re new to Android or you simply want to cover all of your bases, take a look at our walkthrough. It could help you prevent Android Nougat problems.

Samsung Galaxy Nougat Problems

Samsung and its carrier partners are doing their best to squash bugs and performance problems, but we continue to hear and see complaints about Galaxy Android 7.0 and Android 7.1.1 Nougat issues.

Galaxy Note 8 Problems

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 runs a newer version of Android Nougat dubbed Android 7.1.1, but that doesn’t mean the device is problems-free. Far from it.

Galaxy Note 8 users are complaining about abnormal battery drain, issues with Wi-Fi, issues pairing the device with Bluetooth speakers and headphones, GPS problems, wireless charging issues, problems with apps, issues with the Bixby voice assistant, poor reception, and problems with visual voicemail.

Galaxy S8 Nougat Problems

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are two of the best smartphones available, but they’re far from perfect.

Samsung Galaxy S8 users are complaining about a wide range of problems ranging from poor battery life to issues with the fingerprint sensor to problems with GPS to annoying random reboot issues.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Nougat issues are similar to the other Android Nougat problems plaguing older Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

Galaxy S7 Nougat Problems

Samsung Galaxy S7 owners are complaining about various Wi-Fi issues, issues with the camera, issues with sound/speakers, abnormal battery drain, Bluetooth issues, LED notification issues, lag, keyboard problems, installation issues, issues with SMS and callsTheme Store issuesproblems with WhatsApp, and various issues with Samsung Pass.

Samsung’s also acknowledged issues with screen mirroring when using the Quick Connect feature. If screen mirroring is busted, you might need to download the Screen Mirroring patch from the Google Play Store.

T-Mobile Galaxy S7 users are complaining about installation problems, Wi-Fi problems, issues with battery life, a problem wherein apps are vanishing from the home screen, abnormal amounts of UI lag, voice issues, notification issues, and predictive text problems.

Sprint Galaxy S7 Nougat users are complaining about issues with GPS strength, connection errors, random reboots, and mobile data.

On AT&T, Galaxy S7 users are experiencing issues with the fingerprint sensor, problems with Samsung Browser, GPS issues, and abnormal battery drain problems.

Verizon Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users aren’t immune to the problems plaguing Samsung’s flagships from 2016. We’re also seeing complaints about broken Wi-Fiissues with notifications, weird battery drain, and lag.

We expect the list of Android 7.0 Nougat issues to grow as new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Android Nougat updates hit devices around the world.

Galaxy S6 Nougat Problems

We’re seeing a number of complaints about Samsung’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+ Android Nougat updates.

Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Nougat include bad battery life, problems with RAM management, lag and lockups, jagged animations, overheating, GPS issues, Bluetooth issues, and various installation issues.

Sprint Galaxy S6 users are complaining about issues with charging, random reboots, and odd Wi-Fi problems.

Verizon Galaxy S6 users are seeing Wi-Fi problems, problems with Amazon’s Kindle, slow app response time, and more.

Galaxy Note 5 Nougat Problems

Galaxy Note 5 Nougat users are also dealing with a variety of bugs and problems.

Galaxy Note 5 Nougat users are noticing installation problems, weird battery drain and connectivity issues including wonky Bluetooth.

Others are running into issues with various first and third-party applications including Samsung Pay, random reboots, problems with the LED light and notificationsissues with GPS, missing widgets, and installation issues.

Galaxy Tab Nougat Problems

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 owners are running into various problems with Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Some Galaxy Tab S2 users are noticing Wi-Fi issues, slow charging problems, UI lag, Bluetooth problems, and issues with Google Play.

Where to Find Feedback

If you own a Galaxy device running Nougat, make sure you dig into the feedback from those running the latest version of Android 7.0 or Android 7.1.1.

This feedback will alert you to potential Nougat problems as well as the potential benefits of installing the new operating system on your device.

Ultimately, this feedback could help you decide if you want to install the latest version of Android Nougat on your smartphone or tablet.


We also recommend XDA-Developers and Android Central Forums. These are two excellent resources and they’re worth bookmarking.

Once carriers start pushing out Android Nougat you’ll want to head to carrier-specific forums on XDA-Developers or the official forums at carriers like AT&TVerizon and Sprint. We’ll see a ton of feedback emerge there.

You should also use social media sites like Twitter to gather valuable feedback from fellow Galaxy users.

How to Fix Galaxy Android Nougat Problems

If you do run into an Android Nougat update on your Galaxy device there’s no need to panic. There’s a good chance you’ll be able to fix your issue from the comfort of your chair.

To start, you’ll want to take a look at our list of fixes for the most common Samsung Galaxy Nougat problems. Our list includes fixes for abnormal battery life, Wi-Fi connectivity issues, bad Bluetooth, UI lag, and more.

We’ve also put together some tips to improve Android Nougat performance on the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy Tab.


If you can’t find your fix there, XDA-Developers, Twitter, Android-centric forums like Android Central Forums, and carrier forums are also great resources.

If you were having an excellent experience on Marshmallow you can also flash back to the older version of Android if you think that will improve your device’s performance.

You can also try upgrading to Android 8.0 Oreo if an update is available for your device.

Samsung’s rolling Oreo out to the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy Tab, and several other models. and the new operating system comes with fixes and enhancements. It also comes with its own set of problems.

The company’s Android Oreo upgrade will continue to land for Galaxy devices throughout the summer so if you’re struggling on Nougat, keep your eyes peeled.

What’s Next

If you can’t find a fix for your Galaxy Android Nougat problem know that you’ll probably be on your own for long stretches of time.

Samsung and its carrier partners are pushing out bug fixes to address Nougat issues but these updates are typically pretty sporadic, especially now that the company and its carrier partners are primarily focused on Android Oreo.

Older devices like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 probably won’t get upgraded to Android Oreo, but they will still receive occasional bug fixes.

Samsung will continue to roll out monthly security updates to its Galaxy devices, but there’s no guarantee they’ll have bug fixes on board.

The company’s released lists showing which devices are still getting monthly, and quarterly, security updates. Note that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are no longer supported.

Monthly Security Updates

  • Galaxy S series (S9, S9+, S8, S8+, S8 Active, S7, S7 edge, S7 Active, S6 edge+, S6 Active)
  • Galaxy Note series (Note 8, Note 5)
  • Galaxy A series (A5 (2016), A5 (2017), A8 (2018))

Current Models for Quarterly Security Updates

  • Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2017)
  • Galaxy A6 (2018), Galaxy A6+ (2018), Galaxy A8+ (2018)
  • Galaxy J1 Mini Prime, Galaxy J2 (2016), Galaxy J2 (2018)
  • Galaxy J3 Pop, Galaxy J7 Pop, Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017)
  • Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy J7 Neo, Galaxy J7 Duo
  • Galaxy Tab S2 L Refresh, Galaxy Tab S2 S Refresh, Galaxy Tab S3 9.7

  • Galaxy Note FE

4 Reasons Not to Install Galaxy S8 Oreo & 11 Reasons You Should

Install Oreo If You Want to Improve Your Security

Install Oreo If You Want to Improve Your Security

If you value your security, and we assume all of you do, you should think about installing the Galaxy S8 Oreo update soon after it arrives for your phone. 

Samsung continues to release important security patches for Galaxy-branded devices and your Galaxy S8's Android 8.0 Oreo update should bring the latest patches from Samsung, and Google, to your phone. 

The Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update delivers the company's latest security updates and we expect upcoming releases to come with newer security patches.

If you're curious about Samsung's security updates, you can read more about the changes on Samsung's website

If you failed to download an older security update from another month, you'll get those patches when you go to install Android Oreo on your Galaxy S8 for the first time. 

The Galaxy S8 Oreo update also comes with security improvements to Samsung Pay, Samsung's popular mobile payment solution. If you use Samsung Pay, you should probably download the Android Oreo update soon after it arrives for your phone. 

It also comes with some enhancements to Find My Mobile including the ability to remotely back up Secure Folder to Samsung Cloud when you lose your phone and a way to lock up Samsung Pass using Find My Mobile.

On top of those features, Oreo comes with enhancements to the device's Biometrics. Features that use biometrics like your face, fingerprints, and irises are only available when you use a secure screen lock type (pattern, PIN, or password).

If you decide to switch to a non-secure screen lock type (Swipe or None), the device will automatically suspend biometric authentication for unlocking and for verification in apps like Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass.

    After updating Nougat, i am facing severe problems of network error. It shows my cellular network is working but i am not able to make any calls or use data.

    Look forward for an update.

    I had nougat for one week and I don’t like it. Battery life was about the same. But white colour on notification bar, too small words in keyboard and some more thinks what looks really bad.
    So I downgraded back to 6.0.1 and it’s just what I like. Why they still trying make new Android ? Just improve battery life on devices. That’s what we need. No new androids…….

        Just download firmware from and flash it via Odin.
        Sometime is good make factory reset before flashing.

    • Annoyed user

      03/14/2017 at 12:58 pm

      How did you downgrade? I’ve been told that it was not possible. I have been unable to find a factory image for my particular (Verizon) model. The changes to the calendar and phone app UI is unacceptable to me. They make the apps harder to use. I have already encountered several (minor but annoying) errors, and the battery life seems to have gotten worse.


    02/23/2017 at 1:33 am

    since I updated, my play store will not work with mobile data and will download or update only with WiFi. tried all the remedies available on the net right from clearing cache to disabling and enabling google account and checking the restrictions of data but nothing seems to work. On my assistant of Live Chat simply the guy told me that its a nougat problem and he cant do anything about it ??!!! huh… also my call forwarding is not working even though i checked with service provider vodafone and there is no issue with vodafone. I am using Samsung S7 edge and seriously feel pathetic about this now.

    Came to look for any possible issues with nougat and gps. Started reading the story. Kept reading the same comments over and over, paragraph after paragraph that could be summed up by saying “s7 nougat update is being released, people are having problems.” and “Prep your device”. Literally, this reads like a middle school student trying to make that minimum word essay by using a whole bunch of paragraph fillers! This article is nothing but clickbait garbage. Thanks for wasting my time!

        If apple had handed this article to these peoe ,and said JUST PRINT IT, they cod not have done a better job to TRY to put people off, of the best phones on the market, they are just bugs, and an update will fixem, check out , massive bezelled, small screen ratio , old fashioned lcd’d, low screen resolutioned, apples messed up updates, but you’ll need to search google, cos its usually well hidden.
        plus internet paid liars are hard to navigate through, one guys post thier talks about being FORCED to upgrade, what tripe, mines just arrived
        and it aint forcin me, and some of this nonsense is from rooted phone meddlers people here supposedly bleeding about an
        s6 edge plus update that came out over in the UK 15/06/17.

    I had the same issue as everyone. Playing around with the settings back and forth, I finally found the battery drain problem. Turn off video enhancer, and the app power monitor setting in advanced settings. Battery life is back to normal. Have been with the phone since 8am and now its 6pm and Im at 76% battery life.

      Hi mate where is that app “power monitoring setting ” I can not find to switch off , I have Galaxy s7 edge and now I got problem a lot of drain battery

        06/15/2017 at 12:49 pm

        Also turn off back ground data in every program you don’t use and disable the programs you don’t use at all, the android phones are ultimately personalisable, that has to be good, so its worth, taking a spare hour, working your way through the settings and turning off what you’ll never use, and turning off notifications on apps you don’t require them on, plus if email automation is not neccessary put it on manual ,so they only update when you look at them, plus unused social media apps DRAIN, I know its my personal choice but, I don’t use farcebook or g+ and I have 7+ hours of screen on time and more than a day of battery life out of a s6 edge plus its worth gettinh yo know your phone, when you do a Samsung edge/Android phone is unbeatable Oh, I have good eyesight and the screen is so bright, unless I rarely need to look at it outside (Bluetooth an all that ya know.) the screen is only at 17/20 percent brightness,

      you sound like an a$ple employed Pr guy here to poison Samsung buyers, and desperately try to send a$ple some customers, just so you know ANDROID has 86+% of the market, and samsung lead android. We’re all lucky we’ve not got eye strain trying to make out any of the obscellescent tiny low resolutioned lcd screen, amongst all that bezell , on an sliphone. Ha ha even a$ples ditchin em, (Years late to the party.) Come to think of it, do you know anybody who doesn’t know somebody, with a cracked sliphone screen…now thats dangerous to people with poorly kids , I KNOW PERSONALLY, and as for a$ple update messes , they are famous, but you’ll have to google them, they get well covered. Sorry about personal circumstances if they turn out to be real, but Pr being what it is, and the state of the phone covering media stories and threads since samsung dethroned a$ple as the No1 sometime ago, means that every grumbling samsung story ,has to be viewed as a posdible setup, matter how many samsung products the poster claims nor how many fairhfull years (Wait a moment, about to cry..that’s better.) only to avow ..never to buy samsung again, because a spider walked across it, or the likes. Don’t believe me public ,check out the youtube video, of a fidget spinner breaking a samsung screen, yeah, well that is, till you work out, all that time and money spent making that video on that big AMERICAN RANCH , didn’t tell you a big guy with the leverage of a big set of STEEL clamps ,smashed one of the metal lugs, that hard down, IT , broke the screen, while you were looking at the fidget spinner. Check it out when its at slo mo.

    My s7 edge nougat Exynos is very good.
    Battery life is even better and no any issues with wi fi or what so ever.
    Very good update.

    My S7 edge is working good except for the low call volume. No one can hear me and I have to speak loudly when on calls

    After reading some of these articles & comments I was terrified to install the Nougat update but decided to take a chance & Installed it on my (Sprint) S7 Edge three days ago. I’ve had absolutely no problems at all. The phone seems a little faster & maybe a bit smoother & haven’t noticed any changes in battery life. I’ve used Android phones since the HTC Evo & think this update is one of the best I’ve gotten. This may be the first that hasn’t messed my phone up one way or another & one of few that really made the phone better.
    Not wild about the color change in list of conversations (hard to read) for texting but other than that I’m liking this phone more than ever after the update.

    03/04/2017 at 9:56 am

    After update I could not hear incoming callers… very muted. AT&T tried to troubleshoot. Did factory reinstall. Did not help. They’re sending me out a new phone.

    18 years in the IT field witnessing software companies updating and changing GUIs. I find no reason for this Nougat update. Why fix what wasn’t broken? Now all your users have to adapt to get another method to get simple tasks done. Very sick of program writers trying to make a name for themselves while publishing a bad product. My phone is extremely slower and unresponsive most of the time. Android was supposed to be better than the typical change everything Mirosoft versions and now I see Android and Samsung has taken on this business idea. I highly doubt you have labs to test these be updates. I am very upset at the ungodly price I pay for your phones. This update had made me consider a new brand of phone. Horrible!

  13. Elizabeth Gonzalez

    03/08/2017 at 3:18 pm

    Since initiating the update I have had issues with everything from texting to Wi-Fi. Not only that but the issues are just getting worse.  Talk to text is impossible to use now and the update is not compatible with Spanish in the least. Wish there was a way to undo this. It is by far the worst update yet. I don’t even want to use my phone anymore.

    Most annoying are abrupt fluctuations in sound volume. And :

    freezes screen
    Hate it

    If you have your phone is silent mode or vibrate, the LED will not flash for text messages. If you have your sound on, it will. Stupid, i know.

    Sprint s7 here, I’ve had every single issue above, regardless of carrier. Ready to dump this phone entirely. Phone was marvelous prior to update, now it’s broken. Everything is an issue. After this experience, I see why folks stick with IOS. Sure some updates have bugs, but this broken my phone. Wifi issues, keyboard is useless, call issues, major battery drain (half of what it used to be,) reboots, constant lag, glitches, lost functionality within the os and apps… and the best lart is no features to speak of. What, added security? Please, I only download from the playstore to avoid that. I’m calling Sprint tomorrow for help, as I’ve tried everything. Best of all is I updated while on vacation, when I need the phone most.

    Liked the ability to force a larger font to most applications (ie facebook…) although gmail is still “fine print” and the notification bars’ text is ridiculously tiny. Still can’t use camera and flashlight at the same time (WHY!?) and now the pocket mode quit working again – I’ll notice heat on my leg, pull phone out of my pocket, and find a dozen or more apps have been activated while in my pocket. That problem with the Galaxy S5 was the reason I jumped up to the S7. Now, I have to question whether they’re intentionally putting crap like that on the devices to coax users into spending the money on a new phone. Approximately one week since 7.0 pushed though, and now Verizon has another update, installing it as I type this message. Hopefully it’ll fix more than it breaks

    For me I can’t load any videos, and on snapchat I can’t open any videos or send videos. The YouTube app does not work because none of the videos will load there either, phone battery drains quicker, and I could go on… but I appreciate the new emojis

    The thing that solve my battery problem after installing Nougat on my S7, was restoring applications prefereces. In settings- >applications-> (three dots menu) -> Restore app preferences.
    (I also cleared the cache from the boot menu)
    (I did not make a factory reset before or after update)

    Before this the battery lasted 6 hours, and now more than 20.

    Hope this works for you two.

    Not a lot good about it….more steps just to find a contact. Got rid of favorites in contacts. Touch sensitivity seems worse. Lags in loading emails. Smaller tool bar. Thus far, the only thing I like is the blue light filter for the hour before you go to bed. If like to revert back unless they make an overhaul soon!!

    My Samsung S7 suddenly has “forgotten” the pattern passcode I have been using for a LONG time .. I am now up to two remaining attempts to access the phone before it factory resets which I do NOT want it to do. Any insight would be appreciated!

    I have the nougat update on my s6 and my only problems are the battery drain and completely mental keyboard. It’s literally frustrating to type on it or even us the swipe key function to type. I lost nearly 50% battery in 2 hours.

    04/20/2017 at 3:23 pm

    My S7 edge worked great until last update. I rely heavy on my voice recognition to write emails and text. Found issues with it just repeating the same sentence over and over and other times deleting the whole text.
    The battery drain is a pain as it also means needing to have access to recharge multiple times during the day.
    I have placed an order for the upgraded S 8 plus and I can tell you now if it is anything like what I have been experiencing with the s7 edge upgrade software I will be highly disappointed as the voice recognition and commands is what I use the most.

    My youtube doesnt work and when i make a call there is no ringing on my end of the phone so i hang up sometimes thinking the call didnt go thru because it is silent.. when i dont hang up and it goes thru i just hear silence until the person answers.. also noticing some lag going from app to app (not lag in chrome).

    I must be having a Nougat nightmare, and not the one where they left the nougats out of the Mars bar. Apps are crashing hourly, the screen freezes, hourly, Google assistant either quit, or is hard of hearing, and what battery…Oh talk to text….Well, let’s just say I’m not worried about artificial intelligence when we can’t even have a phone understand basic English, let alone, understand basic English. Well that’s all and just a note, it has crashed 3 times just making this comment.

    Battery not charging in fast charge after Nougat update on Note 5 (Telus Canada). Before it took around 1h15 min to charge, now is more like 2h20min. The same problem on my wife’s Edge 6 plus.

    Also, there is no more multitasking option.

    My S7 Edge completely died this weekend after the update, will not charge or switch on. At the moment it is back to shop for repair.

    My S6 is extremely slow since the update. My messenger app is constantly crashing, two days ago, the phone refused to turn back on for about 10 minutes, battery is draining fairly rapid, and I cannot flip my screen while watching movies unless it’s on Youtube and even then I have to press the full screen button vs it just going that way when I flip my phone.

    Nougat is a disaster of an update for me (S6 edge). Mine will not stay connected to wi-fi. I’ve tried different wi-fi networks, rebooting phone, rebooting wi-fi, everything I can think of. It just connects for a few minutes then drops it for a few minutes then reconnects in a tireless loop. It’s also annoying that everytime it drops wi-fi and then connects to wi-fi, it gives an audible notification which I haven’t found how to turn off yet.

    My recommendation is to not update to Nougat until more of the bugs have been fixed.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Sprint. I updated to Android 7 about a month ago and regret it every day. The battery drain is significant and likely due to the screen turning on its own after you have placed it into sleep mode by tapping the Power button. If you have somewhat poor vision, the Notification screen’s small light gray and blue text is horrifically hard to read under many conditions. The look and feel of the “minimal” design is a SIGNIFICANT step backwards. If Android 6 was re-released, I would be flipping cart-wheels and view it as a significant improvement. Note, I love technology and have never regretted an OS upgrade. I usually give it time for adjustment. Not this one. Android 7 ABSOLUTELY SUX, at least the Samsung variation does. Android 6 was rock solid in almost every way except the “Fully Charged” notification that wakes you up ea night with a glaring light. For what it’s worth, they didn’t fix that in Android 7 either.

    I have a galaxy S6 and having issues with text/emails. I have a word typed ( correctly ) and it changes the word to something else.

    Ever since the latest update (7.0), my Note 5 sometimes will not make an outgoing call. I slide the name to the right, it start to make the call but disconnects immediately. I have to restart the phone to re-gain calling out function.

    I have few problems with the Galaxy 6 Edge with the new nougat update! I really hate it and would like to revert back to 6.0.1. That was more stable. Is it possible to go back to the previous OS?

    Camera crashes – This is the normal camera app that comes with nougat.

    Very strange problem : It randomly starts doing things itself (not connected to 4g/wifi), like going to “recently used apps”. It starts going through each app, then back to “recently used app”. It feels as though someone else is controlling the device. However please note that its not connected to the wifi or the 4g network.

    Also, does anyone else finds that it HOGS your wifi connection? Like really throttles it? To a point where your WIFI connection hangs until you turn the WIFI off on the phone.

    After the Nougat update to both my Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Tab S2, battery life has significantly improved. You must first do the partition cache delete after the update before you get the expected improvements. This step ought to be standard during the upgrade. It took an in depth internet search for me to find this information.
