Update went ok.  WiFi calling failed after update, but healed itself about an hour later. Don't much like the revised Settings menus, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Does WiFi calling still kill HD phone calls

I have already looked into this and tried it all but you cannot so I use Google Messenger which works good for me because I have people color coded I use it as my default messenger app works great.

Is everyone else's phone way laggy? Mine will hang for several seconds at time, many times a day. Wondering if I should wipe, or is this just a product of the new software.

I don't notice any lag since the update. I wiped the cache though right after I updated. That may help.

If you weren't already on the beta I would suggest a full wipe. I had lots of issues running release 2 of the beta and after a wipe everything was back to running great again.

I second the motion.

 

Full wipe helped me dramatically.

Another question as well, are you running any themes?  If you are still having issues and haven't wiped yet try going back to the default theme and see if you are still having issues.  There are a lot of themes out there that doesn't run quite right on android 7.0.

Yes, they just changed the name of it last week. It is now known as Android Messages.

Here in SoCal, my LTE reception performance got worse after the official 7.0 update. At the same locations & at the same time, my wife's & mom's iPhone SE and Note 3 get LTE whereas I only get 3G at some spots.

 

Anyone else with worse LTE reception?

Sprint overall has slow down every where I have been lately. Also with their change to roaming (100mb) I will more then likely be moving to Verizon after 17 years of faithfully service with them.
