    Just wondering what others think about the upgrade to Nougat. For the most part, I really like it, but the biggest issue I have is the small notification font. Perhaps it is a sign I am getting old, but this is a big issue for me. After talking with Samsung tech support, there is nothing I can do about resolving this issue except wait for another update ... assuming that Samsung will fix this problem. There is no way to downgrade my phone, so really not happy.

    I haven't noticed it as an issue, but then again it's just like my Note 7 was, so I like it.

    If you go to settings - display - there should be a font size and display size setting to play with. See if that helps?

    I haven't actually noticed it being much smaller, but I have to say I do love the update to Nougat. Just the overall feel and look of the changes, it's a nice update I think.

    I agree with the tiny notifications and all the white now around the apps on the desktops.

    There are other small things too.... one thing I noticed today (being the first day with Nougat) it is supposed to save battery but it is NOT on mine.

    When I first got this phone S7E I could go 2 days on one charge... then after a few updates I could go one day on a charge.... today I am already down to 31% at this time........and I am not a power user by any means.....

    OK, got rid of the white around the icons....turned off the icon frames... DUH... I should have thought of that sooner......

    I'm having the problem where led notifications don't work unless you turn the sound notifications on. I also hate that you have to turn your location on to be able to use maps now. And I don't like how when you go to write a text it takes you to the contacts first. In short, I hate it.

    Love it. No bugs at all. My battery life is up a tad. I FDRd before the update and after. Wiped cache after.

    Have you found a way when you are in messaging that when you tap the create message button it will take you directly to create a message rather than the contacts list?

    VZ messaging and all text messaging apps I've used before do take you to the contacts list when you tap 'new'. The cursor is bliking on the recipient. App just wants to know who will be getting the new text

    The previous versions of android would actually open a new message when you pressed the first new button, which is what it should do. It's very poor design.

    And do you have the LED notification issue that is very widespread? LED notifications don't show unless you have sound notifications turned on for an app.
