Samsung Galaxy S7 is currently being updated to the new Android 7.0 Nougat update via OTA, but since the rollout is still new, not all S7 units have received the update just yet.
Usually, some people are not always into major software updates, especially when looking at how heavy these updates can be. When one is having a good time with the current OS, why should they upgrade to the newer version? Well, there is always something good about new updates, in fact, something better than the current version.
Those who are still mulling over whether or not to upgrade to the new Android 7.0 Nougat on their Samsung Galaxy S7 should no longer be having second thoughts after reading this. According to the developers of the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS, the update comes with not just new features, but also bug fixes and performance improvements.
While a lot has been focused on the new features and the bug fixes that Android 7.0 Nougat comes with, very few have highlighted the amount of performance improvement that the OS also comes with. Well, folks at Geekbench have taken their time to do a few tests of the Galaxy S7 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
From the tests, it is clear that current Samsung Galaxy S7 users should upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat whenever this opportunity knocks on their doors. Apparently, the benchmarking site’s listings show separate results for single-core and multi-core tests for the two operating systems. When using Android Marshmallow, the Galaxy S7 has a single-core score of 1697 and a multi-core score of 3939. On the contrary, the same phone clocks a better single-core score of 2199 and an even better multi-core score of 6577 when using Android 7.0 Nougat.
Here, the only major change in the phone’s configuration is the operating system. If anything, these different performance scores should just give you a clue of how faster the Galaxy S7 becomes after the Nougat update, despite some slight anomalies. In addition, the device will also save you more battery power thanks to a newer Doze mode. What could be better than an S7 phone that is faster in performance and has a longer-lasting battery?
In short, make sure you upgrade to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge when the OTA notification comes your way. If it hasn’t, it should be on its way there! Stay tuned!
