I guess I'm in the 1% then.  After spending top dollar for a flagship phone I very much care about having the latest and updated software.  I do think that with the other major carriers releasing 7.0 that Verizon will follow very soon.

Of course they will, no reason for everyone to get all worked up about it.

Anyway We or I are Verizon wireless Family. ^^

We or I choose Verizon as wireless provider.

There are too many reasons for choosing Verizon.

I think this is point.

We or I think Verizon is best top wireless company but The LAST,The Bottom at reality.

I just switched from Sprint... I am running they full nougat update on my verizon S7 edge. Just the T-Mo firmware with the Verizon CSC. Doesn't trip Knox, easy push from ODIN. And easy ODIN flash back to stock VZW to accept the OTA when it comes in April. Just Google XDA Verizon S7 edge and follow the directions from JKruse and you can be running a clean Nougat S7edge with everything working except WiFi calling. Even video calling...

Verzion is stupid slow on this update could be the 10% worse battery issue but at least give I us the option to download buggy software.

verizonwireless-admin vzw_customer_support @verizonwireless giving your customers an ETA would be good customer service.  Please.

Won't happen, if Verizon were to give an ETA and more work needed to be done by Samsung, the backlash would be much worse than not saying anything at all.

I think if Verizon were to let people know what stage of of testing they were in it would be more beneficial than harmful. People understand that problems occur and wouldn't expect Verizon to be able to give them an exact date and time. Just a little communication to the S7/Edge owners would go a long way.

I've been around this a long time, I've seen it happen.  When people perceive a date to be promised, they absolutely lose their minds when it doesn't happen.

That is right.

but If they can not keep the promise. they can explain that.

people understand it.....we are the human with knowledge.

that is right communication each other.....I think.

Should construction companies not provide dates for projects to be complete? Verizons customers expect a modicum of professionalism. Estimated times are good, especially if you communicate to your customers why it's a moving target. We aren't in the dark ages any more, people expect quick updates and communication.

That is What I talking about.........

Yes Yes

Just a little communication is good for S7/S7 Edge users and Verizon.

You must wait with mouth shut until I give you.  This is not good .......

Yes that's what Verizon needs to do,  communicate with customers not just let us wondering like crazy

COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY

Yes, it stinks that we have to wait and that VW is not providing any additional information.  I check the web for stories, & blogs almost every day and don't get any news.  Aside from that I was curious how Motorola Droid Turbo 2 users were liking their Nougat update and it appears they are having issues (some, not all to be fair) so I keep telling myself that it is good that SGS7 owners did not get the update yet and that VW has bugs to work out possibly that will effect our phones.  Then again, it would be nice if they provided a month in which they were targeting to release Nougat for the SGS7.

I wonder if Verizon reads these posts and sees how upset customers are over this.  If they do, do they care?

I believe they do... maybe once a week anyways. I posted an issue with my AoD not showing notifications and they replied asking what software version I was on. Course I replied that day and haven't heard from them since, that was at least 3 days ago I believe. So they read, just don't act very much on it.

As for other comments about Verizon not releasing a "buggy" update... well unfortunately almost all updates are buggy, whether we get it 1st or get it last.  Might not be so buggy if companies like Verizon would STOP putting their own [Removed] on it... who knows.  Either way, a little heads up to when we might possibly get it would be nice.

Besides the fact that all 3 other major US carriers have updated their S7 varieties which can only lead to one factor in why it is not released, Verizon Not manufacturer. Mostly likely root cause, by a mile, is issues with additional software Verizon is installing on top of release.

My problem is their are items in the 7.x update that I desire or need to assist me in my daily use of phone which is the entire reason for existence and, more importantly, why I purchased the latest, greatest and most expensive Android phone from Verizon.

Having been a R&D engineer I fully appreciate the want for a stable general release but consistently delay of the vast majority of updates by substantial time from that of others  is baffling. A balance must be found between releasing a stable update and the other extreme of paralysis by analysis when it is released when virtually stale and outdated. Both of these extremes are bad for customers.

I just want a happy medium and a release so I can utilize functions to achieve better productivity. Thanks

Any apps Verizon does happen to include are not the reason for the holdup, they are already written, and can be found on the play store.  The only difference is that they are put in the system partition instead of the user partition, they aren't part of the OS in any way. If there are things included with the new release that you NEED for your daily use of the phone, then you bought the wrong phone, you should have bought one that included this to start with

When we say apps, we are talking about the BLOATWARE that Verizon puts on top of the Android Upgrades.  And yes making sure those work as intended.  So it very well can slow down the process, otherwise if it were the Samsung version of the update we would've had it by now.
