The Android 7.0 Nougat update is being rolled out to Nexus devices, but there are some issues that users need to know about.
The new update will bring fixes for many bugs and also offer new features to Nexus phones and devices owned by users all over the world. However, there are also some problems, so let’s take a look at the issues faced by Nexus 6, the Nexus 6P, the Nexus 5X and others.
Google had released a beta program for Developers preview some time in the early half of 2016. The program allowed developers or others having a compatible phone or device to test the new 7.0 version before it was released publicly. The beta version offered some important new features, but it had also brought about several problems for users of Nexus devices. Google has released the finalized version of Nougat recently. The beta version has wiped out many of these issues, but Nexus users are complaining about some issues with the new Nougat update.
Preparing for Nougat
The new 7.0 Android Nougat has started to roll out and it is quite tempting for users to move from Marshmallow and download Nougat. However, this needs some preparation. The new version could perform flawlessly on your phone or there could be a fall in its performance. Users must go through the setup guidelines for the new version.
It is still a little early to pass the verdict on Nougat, but there are some issues out there. The update is a great upgrade for Android, but it is not flawless. There are some complaints regarding the installation procedure, which is quite normal in such cases. Many users have also reported problems in side loading the new version. Other complaints pertain to boot loops and busted speakers, lag in performance, excessive battery drain, Wi Fi and Bluetooth problems and so on.
Though it is too early to give an opinion, there will be more complaints as the OTA rolls out to more Nexus devices and more users switch over from Marshmallow to the new Nougat version.
The Good News
However, there is some good news as well on the Nougat front. There is no news of any widespread issues regarding the new software version. It would be a good idea to wait for all the smoke to settle down, though things might be a little confusing right now. 7.0 version brings in a lot of exciting and excellent enhancements.
Alert to Performance
As the OTA is slowly being moved out to Nexus devices all over the world, you may like to keep a tab on the performance. This will alert you to potential problems on your phone or device. If you are still undecided about opting for Nougat and would like to continue with Marshmallow, reading about the problems might help you make a wise decision. It might be a good idea to get to know more about the new version before installing Nougat on your device.
There is a lot of feedback available on social media websites, such as Facebook or Twitter and also in the Nexus and Android Central forum and on YouTube. Users who are already facing issues with Nougat can access solutions at these sites and check out the feedback.
