If you’ve followed our guid to upgrading your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge to Android Nougat 7.0 officially, then you might be living the best possible life with your smartphones.

    This is totally terrible, this update was not properly beta tested & is a complete failure! Samsung should be facing a mass class action lawsuit! The fact they have been having this message problem for months & can’t fix it shows incopitentence on there part! They owe the costumer money for the stress & agrivation this nugate patch has caused! I paid big money for this phone & service! I called repeatedly & gave em a easy fix, They obviously have a program to remove updates or patches when their beta testing! So release this app to remove the latest update until they fix the bugs in the nougat patch and this will solve some of the problems this is beyond ridiculous Samsung should be ashamed and a massive class action lawsuit should be filed! The fact that when you call the ACT like you’re the only person that’s called about this problem is bullshit, they need to fix this problem right away or I’m going to start a Facebook page to start a coalition of a mass class action lawsuit I did not spend all this money on this phone to have my messages fail because I downloaded a patch they recommended! They even admitted there at fault over the phone we as customers do not deserve to download one of their patches that’s supposed to fix our security and update our phones and then have them screwed up instead obviously the patch was not beta-tested correctly! Everybody is having the same problems that downloaded the nougat patch so there’s a lot of us out there experience in this right now! If they do not fix this in seven days I’m going to be launching a Facebook page to start to gather people for a mass class action lawsuit for negligence to provide us with proper service for their phones!
