    Had the update now for 10 days. No problems, and everything is working great. Battery life has improved a little bit, with plenty of juice to get me through the day.:p

    My led notifications seen to be working with default notification sound set to silent.
    I think my main beef with Nougat is it broke my cable app. Also, now I have to unlock the phone before turning it off. Pretty sure I could turn it off from the lockscreen before.

    I've deleted most of my "third party" apps, in favor of the stock ones. My Gallery, ES File Explorer, Textra, and AquaMail are all gone. The stock ones work just as good, and my phone, with 7.0, is even faster now.:p

    It needs a patch. Recently tried reinstalling the folders in a futile attempt to restore all the apps to the home screens--no go! Drippler, Mr. Number, Firefox, and many others won't stay in the folders. It's a problem!

    Pretty sure we have the same gripe. I don't want a two step process to open text. Pointless

    Surprisingly I've had no problems with the update. Make sure you do a FDR after the nougat update & it should resolve any issues.

    Is FDR factory reset? That really shouldn't be necessary!

    Yes, FDR is factory data reset. Doing a FDR before and/or after a major update (such as nougat) is very good practice. Your phone keeps lots & lots of residual data from the old OS and from apps that are set to work with the old OS. Sometimes this old data for the old OS conflicts with operations of the new OS, which can cause battery drain, apps behaving badly, reboots, etc. Doing an FDR makes sure everything works smoothly without any conflicts.

    Yeah and no. Think about it..... These updates are tested and retested on FACTORY-fresh phones by att, vz, etc. They work out (hopefully) all the bugs and then release the update. An app you might have at time of install might get the update a hiccough. Flash before every update, then reload your apps. Been preaching this since gingerbread.

    Then all apps, such as Drippler, lose all preexisting data!

    You will want to save any data, pictures, documents, downloads that you want to keep for after your FDR. Save it to a USB drive or your PC. Most apps that you have to log into should keep your data for each time you log back in.
