I've seen a few articles suggesting Android 7 (Nougat) is rolling out in the UK currently. I have had a software update on my S7Edge today but am still on Android 6.0.1. Any ideas when Nougat is headed our way?

Samsung have officially released Android 7.0 Nougat for the unbranded Samsung Galaxy S7 Flat & EDGE model. EE Wi-Fi calling does indeed work but NOT 4G Calling (VoLTE). It does not matter if your device is locked to EE as the BTU firmware will still accept your EE sim.
You can download the firmware from SamMobile:

Have you tried the BTU firmware? I'm tempted to flash it seeing as VoLTE isn't working currently anyway so literally nothing to lose

Sure, I'm currently using the BTU nougat firmware now and it's GREAT!

Just flashed it to my S7 edge and first impressions is it looks amazing, really good upgrade, but I used battery percent enabler to display battery percent inside of battery icon which doesn't work and also don't seem to have wifi calling. Maybe its because I didn't do a full reset before flashing? Do you have wifi calling and did you do full reset?

Hi Chip, yes you will need to perform a full factory reset. 3rd party apps may not have full support for Nougat yet so It may be your battery percentage app isn't fully support, best to use the official one for time being.
EE Wi-Fi calling can be enabled following these steps:

I'm well aware of where the Wifi calling setting is on the phone, by going from EVR firmware to BTU Nougat firmware without a wipe it had issues.
I've since done a wipe and re-flashed BTU Nougat firmware with the CSC file from the beta1 and now everything works perfect. I have VoWifi and VoLTE which I wouldn't have for probably months until EE get round to updating the firmware.
Only issue i've had is the battery percentage enabler which shows the battery percentage INSIDE the battery icon no longer works with Samsung's firmware, this is obviously a bug as it works fine on my Pixel C which runs even newer version of Nougat.

Hi did you say you had wifi calling and volte after upgrading to nougat. What phone are you using and is it the beta software or the final software released on january 17th.
I am considering flashing the btu software, i need wifi calling but not volte although i would to like to keep it

I am on the Official Nougat release not BETA update. I can confirm Wi-Fi calling works just fine but not VoLTE unless you manually flash the Nougat 1 CSC file which I would not recommend as it will break S Health and you will lose future OTA updates.
