Have tried both manual update through the phone, and also Verizon software assistant.  Both say no new updates available.  Guess it's not ready in NJ yet.. smh

Updates are staggered and come in batches. There is usually a small group of people to get the update and then there is a pause for about 24 hours to allow that group to install and optimize the device to the new OS and report any unforeseen bugs. If all goes well, then the updates resume in larger groups over the next few weeks until all the devices are updated. This is the usual process for updates unless something doesn't go right.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Updates can be staged.  But, if it were already live you would see some people getting it.  Also the Android websites would be more active.  I'm sure it will be turned on at some point today.

Ah, well, what do you know, guess it wasn't worth all the fuss after all.

According to the Nougaaaaaat topic, a member has revealed that the update borks WiFi and requires a factory default.

If anyone checking this topic has updated to Nougat, can you share with us how the update process went and how well your S7/S7E is running?

I'm holding off even checking to see if the update is available for my S7E.

I factory reset after every major release, in place os upgrades are never perfect. Performance is great.

The Marshmallow to Nougat update was the easiest major Android version update I've ever experienced. I had no wifi issues or excessive battery drain issues. The new power saving features of Nougat have made a positive difference for me. I simply updated and went about my business. Couldn't have been smoother.

In the past, yes, after a major update from one version to another I run into issues and wound up doing factory resets but 99%+ of the time the culprit was an app I had installed that was stated to be compatible with the new Android version but really wasn't and/or had a coding flaw.

On the Samsung community there's over 40 pages of people complaining about the update to 7.0.

Samsung isn't saying a word.

My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has been well behaved. No problems detected before or after the software update.
