Android 7… Why you shouldn’t worry that your phone is not getting it!

Nougat was released yesterday (or was it 2 days ago) available for specific Nexus/Android One devices.

I have a Nexus 6P and a Nexus 7

Nexus 7 is not getting it.

But the 6P should get it soon…

My Galaxy S5 is still stuck in Lollipop…

And my Wife’s Note 8 (in a drawer somewhere) is still running KitKat (Android 4.4)

Thing I love about using Android is that even if your device is running an older Android version, you still get all the Android apps you’ll ever need! (not unless you’re still using a device thats running on Gingerbread!)

Yes, newer Android versions will have enhancements, especially in the power saving feature, but we all carry a portable charger anyway…

Now on Tap (introduced in Marshmallow) is honestly a hit and miss.

Google Now Launcher and Keyboard can be both downloaded from the Play Store.

So what do you get with Nougat??? — Split Screen… Something that has been available with Samsung’s devices.

In day to day use, my Lollipop running S5 doesn’t feel too different from my Nexus 6P… Same with my wife’s Note 8…

Maybe Nougat brings better security, better battery life and a more fluid UI…

But believe me, your phone running an old version of Android will be fine even if you don’t receive Nougat!
