To update Lenovo P2 to Android Nougat 7.0 OS, head right to the system setting of your smartphone and check for software update. The Android Nougat 7.0 update file package P2a42_S232_170320_ROW is said to be of around 2GB. Thus, we recommend users to switch to a Wi-Fi connection, rather than downloading the update using mobile data. Although, update files and OS installation does not interfere with user files, backing up your data is always a good option, in order to prevent unwanted loss.

Also ensure that your smartphone s battery level is over 75 percent before initiating the software installation. An improper or failed installation might potentially put the device at risk of getting bricked. At this point, we remind our users that there has been no official word from Lenovo regarding the Android Nougat update. So, the update package currently being received by many users might just be in its beta phase and full of bugs. This might lead the handset behaving erratically, and several applications might be unstable. According to a thread on Gogi.in, several users have reported crashes while using messaging apps, as well as failed Wi-Fi connectivity.
Android Nougat 7.0 update on Lenovo P2 would bring new features on board such as, split-screen for multitasking, U-Touch fingerprint gesture controls, and added security features. The company faced quite a backlash on social media last month from many Lenovo P2 and Lenovo ZUK users, asking for the software update.
