The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are absolutely the worst telephones you'll want to purchase in case you care about well timed updates, present safety patches, and a laugh new variations of Android that come with new options and all that jazz. I say that as a result of america unlocked Galaxy S7 I've (and the S7 Edge I don’t personal) is
virtually all the time at the back of in updates, nonetheless doesn’t have Android Nougat, and most effective nowadays, won March’s safety patch. Samsung hates those telephones and has since day 1.
However hello, it did see an update to March’s safety patch lately that weighs in as tool model G930UUES4AQC1. That’s all it's, even though.
To be truthful to Samsung, they by no means did let us know to be expecting well timed updates on those unlocked fashions. They just stated that they have been unlocked and would paintings on all primary US carriers. After that, it’s been a quarterly-ish update cycle this is at the back of service variants and the ones from around the the pond. We’re simply frustrated through it since telephones that lack a service attachment will have to (in concept) be more uncomplicated to update. That both hasn’t been the case right here or Samsung simply doesn’t care.
Anyhow, your unlocked S7 or S7 Edge will have to have an update nowadays and it’s only a safety patch. No Nougat for you. Additionally, we gained’t be recommending the unlocked Galaxy S8 till Samsung absolutely guarantees well timed updates. And I’m now not speaking a few random email from a Samsung department I’ve by no means heard of.
