As more and more people are installing Android Nougat update on their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, users are also reporting several problems in the update. Samsung has also started pushing a bug fix update for the affected users, but it does not seem to work on a number of issues.

Problems related to battery life are most commonly reported after the release of any update. We recommend giving yGalaxylayx S7 or S7 Edge appropriate time to get settled with the Android Nougat update. Ignore any battery life problems that might arise in the first few days. They will subside on their own.

Wi-Fi and Cellular Problems on Android Nougat

This should solve most Wi-Fi problems such as slow speed and disconnections on Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update.

Bluetooth Problems on Android Nougat
Other connectivity issues on Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update are related to Bluetooth. As with Wi-Fi, ‘forget’ all the Bluetooth devices that are saved on your Galaxy S7 and then pair them again, one by one. Installing a new update seems to corrupt the ‘handshake’ that takes place between two devices when they are paired via Bluetooth.
