Android Nougat’s adoption rate has been pretty slow to date, only taking 0.3% of the Android market since its debut. However, that is set to increase as more OEMs update their devices to the new OS. LG announced a Nougat update for the LG G5 earlier this week, and soon after, a Nougat beta program kicked off for the Galaxy S7…

The best gifts for Android users

That program started rolling out to users today and SamMobile already has it running on an S7 unit and taken a couple dozen screenshots to show off what Samsung’s interface looks like.

As with LG and Huawei skins on Nougat, Samsung UX doesn’t actually get in the way all that much. You can tell Samsung has made changes, but they aren’t overbearing and don’t get in the way of Android itself. Everything is also pretty clean even compared to previous Samsung skins, which were already far cleaner than former versions.

Samsung has also swapped the font in Nougat to its own font, “SamsungOne.” This new font was announced a few months ago, but this is the first time we’re seeing it in action on Android system-wide. Overall, it looks pretty good, as subtle a change as it is.
