@Wardski What issues are you having?

As keen as I am for an update, I haven't experienced any issues with my P9.

The issue I'm having is that Google made some serious security updates to Android 6 and introduced Android 7.   Android 7 and updates have been pushed to most handsets, except for the carrier born P9 here in Australia.

 

And seems neither Huawei or Vodafone intend to update the P9 (like the M8) so better off just bailing - which i did and sold the P9

I don't understand why a device that was released no longer than a year ago is already unsupported in terms of getting and security and feature updates. I wish I had known so I wouldn't have wasted money on the Huawei p9.

Seriously disappointed.

Just wondering if it's only me but, updated to Nougat on my Galaxy S6 Edge on Friday the 19th of May and all weekend I have been suffering from random reboots when enabling Bluetooth (not even connecting. Just enabling), Google Play Services force stopping and Home Screen lagging.

 

To date I have removed all Bluetooth devices and cleared the proccess' cache and data. I did the same for the Google Play Services and cleared my Google Account settings and re-added. I have even cleared the Dalvik cache (reboot holding vol up, home and power).

 

In short, I have done everything I can think off short of a full factory reset (which would be a SERIOUS pain due to resetting things like my 2-factor authentication app, etc).

 

Anyone else having similar issues?
