4 Reasons Not to Install Galaxy S7 Oreo & 10 Reasons You Should is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo update is finally making progress. And while you might be tempted to install it early or the second it arrives for your device, there are some reasons why you might want to wait a few minutes, a few hours, or in some cases, a few days.

After a lengthy wait, Samsung is finally pushing the Android 8.0 Oreo update and its new Experience 9.0 user interface to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

The update isn’t pushing out to the Galaxy S7 Active yet, but we expect that to change within the next few weeks as the rollout makes progress in the United States and in countries around the world.

If you’ve been watching Samsung’s Android Oreo roll out and/or have taken note of the Galaxy S7 Oreo leaks, you know Android 8.0 is a substantial upgrade for the former flagships.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo update comes with a lengthy change log that includes:

  • New Samsung Keyboard
  • New emojis
  • Performance improvements
  • Autofill API
  • Security features

There’s a lot to be excited about, but there’s always a chance the Android Oreo update brings trouble your way.

As we push into the summer we’re starting to hear about some of the bugs and performance issues plaguing Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users who’ve transitioned from Nougat to Oreo.

Common issues include severe battery drain, abnormal amounts of lag, issues with first and third-party apps, and connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc) problems.

Despite these problems, most Galaxy S7 users should upgrade to Android Oreo soon after the update arrives. Some of you might even want to skip the OTA and manually install the firmware right now.

In this guide, we’ll take you through the best reasons to install the Galaxy S7 Oreo update and some reasons why you might want to wait.
