If there is one particular issue that many people have with the world of Android smartphones and tablets, it would be the update availability each time a new version of Android rolls out.

This is verified by many Galaxy Note 5 users who expressed their joy on Reddit threads when they saw that the Android 7.0 update had hit their device. In fact, some of them felt like Samsung has insulted them by making them wait for the Nougat update despite the fact that the S7 is newer than the S6 and Note 5. Naturally, that course of action isn't necessary as your Galaxy Note 5 will periodically scan for new updates and prompt you to install Nougat once the software package is available for download.

What's interesting, however, is that the two apps look to be intended for the Android 7.1 operating system (OS), instead of the Android 7.0. Previous reports of Nougat build for the Galaxy Note 5 rolling out in other countries revealed that the update is well over 1GB in size, so make sure you have enough free storage space on your device, connect to a Wi-Fi network, and ideally let your phone charge while it's downloading the update or at least don't start the installation process before you have at least 50 percent of battery left. The 2015 HTC flagship is now getting an update.

Meanwhile, AT&T has yet to provide the changelog for Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade for the Note 5 but the build number for the update has been released. Android 7.0 Nougat was first announced and released a year ago, and while it has arrived on many a flagship device since then (with some having to go through a fair bit of waiting as well), the older flagships still continue to languish in Android 6.0 Marshmallow territory. Both the updates shall include the latest security patch, however, we weren't able to confirm the same.

Sprint has also not forgotten about the HTC One M9, as the mobile carrier continues to work on its Android 7.0 Nougat update releases.
