    With Samsung, it’s probably because they had been testing for awhile with the 7.0 base, and to add the 7.1.1 into what they’ve already tested means basically having to start all over from scratch. Being in the software business, once you’ve tested a code-base and have deemed it ready for release, or you are in the middle of system and user acceptance testing, to add new changes, requires starting over again and making sure what was added, didn’t break what you already tested, nor did it introduce new issues. So, for those complaining that we aren’t getting 7.1.1 for the S7, that is the reason, unless you want to wait even longer for the Nougat update to be released.
