Android 7.1 which has been named nougat is now finally here and we must say we are impressed by most of the updates but there is one huge issue which is facing android 7.1 and we must address this before we go any further. On the older versions of android such as 5.1 and even 4.4 there is a display setting in the “settings” menu where you can adjust resolution but more importantly you can manually fit the screen to your TV. This is something that android 7.1 was supposed to do automatically but why they did not decide to include the manual option seems to be a bit of a mystery. There appears to be no solution to this and it is causing major problems on older TV’s in particular.
