Verizon brings Nougat to Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5

Verizon brings Nougat to Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5

But, based on recent history, we think Sprint might be the best carrier to sign up with if you want to get future updates to the S8 and S8 Plus first. The carrier later came in with the same treat for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, with AT&T joining the party with an update to the Note 5 and S6 Edge+.

To check your Note 5 or S6 edge+ for updates, go into Settings About phone Software update Check for updates. Once you receive notification that the update has arrived, before you actually install it, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. As of this time, none of the devices in Samsung's huge catalog is running Android 7.1 just yet - this discovery could mean that the Korean phone maker is hard at work at testing a new build for the newest Nougat.

Meanwhile, AT&T has yet to provide the changelog for Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade for the Note 5 but the build number for the update has been released. Both updates are pretty large, coming in at more than 1.5GB in size. Additionally, you can edit and markup PDFs. Verizon has the details, so look for an over-the-air update to bring you all of those features like split-screen mode and Doze for battery optimization. The phone also gains battery management tools and the usual performance improvements. AT&T also notes that the updates will remove the AT&T Address Book, MobiTV, and AT&T Live apps. According to some reader reports the final software is hitting phones now, but your individual mileage may vary since such rollouts tend to be staggered.

Good news if you own a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge purchased from Sprint.
