    Samsung Galaxy Beta Programme goes live in UK


    HugoQueiriga

    If you have been waiting for Samsung to update your Samsung Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge to the latest Nougat goodness, then you are in luck, sort of. Samsung has started the Nougat Beta programme in the UK for their flagship devices.

    So how do you get access to this program? You can do this by going to the Galaxy Apps store on your phone - if like me you disabled it, then make sure you enable it again and update the app - then search for Galaxy beta program. Install the app because you will need to use it to register for the program.

    Samsung intends to run this program from 9/11/16 to mid December in the UK, you should expect the latest Samsung UX based on Android 7.0 (Nougat). The programme is only open to Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 Edge and both devices have to be unlocked and network free versions. The Olympic and Batman editions are not supported.

    To register for the programme you need to open the app and click the settings menu - the three vertical dots - and press the Registration option in the popup menu, this will take you to the Terms of Service for the programme, agree to it and it will register you with the Beta programme. You will need to have a Samsung account to be able to take part.

    If you want to leave the program you can open the app again and click on the settings menu and choose deregister, this will remove you from the beta programme. As with any beta software, this will likely have bugs, so if you are updating your main driver ensure you backup your device first.

    The instructions say that to download the beta software you will need to go to Settings - About device - Download updates manually to be able to download the software. It seems this hasn't gone live yet, once it has we will have more information to share.

    Let us know how you get on with the program and share your feedback with the rest of the community here at MoDaCo.

    • Title says it all really,  Huawei Mate 10 Pro.  Boxed with all accessories (which are unused).  Receipt from Carphone Warehouse in box for warranty purposes Titanium Grey colour.  Phone was bought unlocked from new but has a 3 splash screen because Huawei allowed 3 to do that if a 3 sim was the first inserted - not a mistake I will make again Screen protector still intact.  In a case from new, mint condition £345 incl RMSD Payment by bank transfer   Forgot to say that if this is your thing I also have the bootloader unlock code (unused) for this device  
    • Ha ha - wouldn't you know it - I got caught this time and had to pay an extra €50 (€40 VAT + €10 post office handling fee) on delivery. Bit of a bummer but still cheaper than buying locally (a few places now stock Xiaomi phones including the Note 5 here in Dublin nowadays). However a colleague said that he imported a load of 3D printer parts and they got through OK but then he got an additional small part in an envelope which was stopped and charged. So it looks like it's still pot luck but I presume that they're wiser to packages coming from the likes of China/HK etc. these days and are more likely to pick them out for inspection...?   BTW - apologies @KennyPowers for the delay in sending the battery - definitely this week. P&P seems to be only €1.50 so don't worry about it.
    • I am selling my Asus Zenfone 5, I got this simply to review. Came sim free/unlocked from Amazon France, so receipt available if required. Mint with box and all contents.  This phone is brilliant IMO. Headphone jack with good audio. Stereo effect speakers. Dual rear lenses one is 120 degree wide angle. Other is normal with large pixels and sensor. Asus went out to make the camera worthy and even got DxoMark to rate it.  And minimal bloat from Asus. A refreshing change. Photos and video of phone in my review https://gavinsgadgets.com/2018/06/25/asus-zenfone-5-review-camera-audio-asuss-stunning-new-midrange-phone-will-surprise-you/  Payment via BACS. Had one of the best feedbacks on PSC Forum and have a perfect rating on eBay too. Contact here or via email gavinfabl at gmail dotty com
