The Android Nougat update for the HTC 10 in Europe has been stopped. Again. If you’re getting a little deja vu here, that’s probably because the same thing happened about two weeks ago. Apparently the bugs found and squashed in that first update hiccup weren’t all of them.

HTC’s product and services director for EMEA, Graham Wheeler, just announced the Nougat rollout in Europe has been “paused” once again while the company “looks into a technical issue”. Unfortunately, he doesn’t expect the HTC 10’s mainland Europe rollout to resume until some time next month.

Wheeler was quick to pre-empt his “No Nougat for mainland Europe” tweet with news that Nougat is now available in the UK, Russia, Turkey and the Middle East. With ZTE, Sony and others delaying or halting their Nougat updates recently too, we’re beginning to wonder if this is all just a coincidence or if there could possibly be a larger problem at hand.

    is there a lot of improvements and diffrence in htc 10 nougat than marshmallow!??…i am using hk version of htc 10…i wish i will get the update soon…🙄

  • CrustyCrocos

    Updates are the only thing that would lead me to Apple devices. In the end, I prefer Android much more, that’s why I am accepting the struggle with the OS updates, but it is still annoying. My P9 is waiting for its branded updated from Vodafone, as it seems it isn’t the worst thing in the end, as the unbranded update seems to have a lot errors.. 😞

  • Philip King

    Samsung, Lenovo (Motorola) have also paused rollouts. what’s wrong with nougat?

    • Philip King

      and now ZTE!

    • Daggett Beaver |dBz|

      Google can’t code its way out of a paper bag. OEMs are the ones who actually provide the great features and improvements. Given the crap foundation they have to work with, I’m surprised OEMs can get the updates out as soon as they do.

  • Daggett Beaver |dBz|

    LOL @ whiners who want bug-infested updates faster just so they can say they have the latest Android.

    • KRISHNANAND M.K

      haha….u r right…we want bug free sofrware…tats all…htc can do it…we can wait…😊

  • huungryshark

          • disqus_hVj9NwwMcK

            HTC doesn’t have the money to advertise like Samsung and apple do. You sheep you buy a product because “everyone else buys it”

          • D in B

            excuses is your defense? keep losing, it suites you.

          • disqus_hVj9NwwMcK

          • D in B

            old enough to get my balls sniffed by some creeper named badelhas

          • Badelhas

            By the answer you must be 15. Go take a warm bubble bath or something, that aggressiveness is not good for you kid.

          • D in B

            Wow u want a 15 year old to take a warm bubble bath? You are a pedophile

          • Ryan

            So your main comeback consists of calling someone a homosexual, and you say HTC is the worst and then say Samsung is worse… Are you 5 years old and don’t know how to be nice to others or put things in order yet? That’s okay, first grade is really hard. Maybe second grade will be better.

          • D in B

            yeah HTC sucks and has the worst sales. so there is that. idiot

  • James Zarazua

    I feel like the battery issues on my Nexus 6p have to do something with it.

  • Hamza Ali

    So LG is the only OEM that actually rolled out Nougat?

    • huungryshark

      huh? moto z has Nougat for months now?

  • Kevin Davis

    It would be nice if one of these OEM’s would step up and say what the problem is that they are encountering with a Nougat rollout. Suspicion says that it is probably a common problem between them with so many oem’s starting and then being forced to halt the rollout.

    • Daggett Beaver |dBz|

      It’s because Nougat is a mess. They can’t say that. It would be biting the hand that feeds them.

  • Daggett Beaver |dBz|

    Someone in another thread said the reason the Nougat update is so special that it’s worth being OCD about getting the update because it’s a software update.

    The word for that is “tautology”.

  • Wilhelm-Bernhard Trometer

    That will happen again in february and they will halt back this update again i have the htc 10 since october and i havnt seen any update since then my xperia xz and lg6 got the nougat update in early december and i havent experience any bugs so far on other forums i was reading comments from other htc 10 users and they did nt experience any bugs either so i guess theire is something wrong with that company htc seems to be lazy they wont sell many phones here in europe if they dont step up the game htc 10 is a great phone i like it but i dont like there lazy update and customer service that is a disaster
