Re: Android 7.0 Nougat Updates

So I had a couple of days to play around with my Nougat S7e phone. I found it is similar to my dearly missed Note7.

 

I don't like the fact that the shortcuts to favourite settings are gone, and also I also missed the shortcut to Mobile Hotspot on the pull-down menu. I had similar issue with the N7 with these buttons being missing from the option.

I don't like the fact that they dropped the screen resolution. I brought it back up to max... 🙂

 

I do like the ability to reply to a text message right from the notification. I'm also glad to have the Blue Light Filter option on this phone now.

 

I haven't really encountered all the new options or what I'm missing compared to Marshmallow. I'm hoping the battery-life would be improved. And hopefully they fixed the connectivity issue, although I don't think it did much different. Maybe I need to go back to EXT again as a quick fix to this issue.

Try Aquamail for an email client. I use multiple accounts and it works great. Also very configurable for a lot of sources like aspects, including look and feel.

Battery life seems as good or better than Marshmallow.

Re: Android 7.0 Nougat Updates

Hi All,

I hope I got a right place to ask this question

After upgrade to Nougat, my main mail client, which is a K-9 does not get new messages in the background. Looks like it is in a sleep mode. I put few apps in  a sleep mode, but don't think I would do it with mail client.

My question is- how do I see a list of "sleeping" apps? Is there is a way to revert app to normal mode? Even the apps I know I put in sleep mode, long press to icon gives me options to uninstall or info. Nothing else. 

my other mail client (Aquamail) and gmail are running fine.

Re: Android 7.0 Nougat Updates

Waited so long and ended up with the worst update. Phone now unreliable. GPS turns on by self. Push notifications stop working randomly sometimes for hours. Wifi connections on and off. I tried full reset and these are the main issues that remain. I would go back to 6.0.1 if I could.

Battery life is really not good. Step backward.

Hello @ctatham

You aren't the only one. Many have battery issues going on after the update it seems 😞

Re: Android 7.0 Nougat Updates

For me, Aquamail is working fine too, no any issue. However K-9 push sometimes works, sometimes don't:-(

Also I really missing hotspot shortcut in the quick menu.

Yes, new menu. Is it better? Not sure. IMO it should be a reason to change a menu. Here we got a lot of just movement, from place to place. Do not see a lot of new features except the option to put an app in sleep mode and notification with the option to perform an action.

Sleep looks to me a joke because it places in sleep mode the app, which uses in backgrounds like 0.2% or less. Do I really care if my battery would run for 20 hours or would give me a few minutes more, while the main core programs are doing the same big draw of power?

I like the phone, but really long waiting for update did not meet the expectation.

Battery life is definitely worse, but not by a lot.

Noticed a couple times it wouldn't connect to WiFi when I returned home.

Otherwise seems smooth and no other glitches have occurred.
