In installed Nougat OTA via Spark a few weeks ago.  I have an S7.  Some things I have noticed so far.

 

Like: The call-hold button has moved. On the previous version I kept touching it with my ear and putting people on hold.

 

Like: There is now an SM widget that appear in the pontification area allowing quick read and reply of an incoing SMS without changing screens.

 

Dislike: Less ability to control what apps do in the background via Device Maintenance.  I can't find a way to designate an app "always manage power" or disable.

 

Dislike: In Application Manager I can't find way to disable a downloaded app.  You can only un-install it.  I used this option for apps I find useful occasionally, that run in the  background.

 

Probably need to download a third party battery manager now ...

Just got an update on XSA today, which has the March security update... only a month behind... I suppose they've got the S8 now to worry about eh.

 

Build details are G930FXXS1DQCE if anyone cares!

Kind of Nougat related I guess...  Had Nougat for a while now and have been waiting on a proper update to Google Assistant.  Got an update to the Google App today and Assistant popped up.  Phone is on 2D with NZC firmware and English UK language, all stock.  Yay, no more having to have the language set to US!!!

Does the Spark firmware still have the abomination that is the Y!Tworld icon for the browser and the terrible low res boot animation?
