Galaxy S6 Nougat Upgrade

The new S6 nougat update made the text messaging app super sensitive. Now I am accidentally calling contacts just by scrolling through my text messages main panel. Also I have to hold the letter keys longer to auto select symbols. Not impressed by these new issues.

Re: Galaxy S6 Nougat Upgrade

Definitely some pros and cons (or things to get used to).


  • Love the interface; feels a bit lighter
  • Phone app finally gets split screen
  • Reply to SMS from notifications panel is nice
  • better utilization of Doze mode
  • Blue light filter - i think. Haven't played much with it yet, but looks like a good concept.


  • Long press for symbols does seem to take longer
  • some of the auto-complete words seem to have changed. I've been suddenly getting Beijing instead of "being." Weird.
  • Longer route to get to recent calls while you're on a call
  • No more low power mode (although it is supposed to be more efficient); haven't determined if battery life has improved at all.

Haven't noticed the issue you see with the text messaging app.
