Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

Recommended Posts

Post update results seem good. Placed a couple of Wi-Fi calls, and have been browsing reddit and listening to music without issue. For the first time ever, the screen has taken the top spot as far as what's consuming battery. I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to be. A noticeable improvement in battery stamina and the device hasn't gotten very warm at all. 44bdd8170adf7ce2af80d0cf67281a2d.jpg

Trying it out now. Not sure yet if I'll keep it. I wish there was a bit more you could configure

I had the new Samsung UI on my phone and uninstalled it after a few hours. That needs some work before it can go on anything that ships.

Does any one else who took the latest update have horribly downgraded battery life? I should be at 75 to 80% left right now but I'm at 51%, same usage pattern as before.

I couldn't even get into my desktop on the phone after the update. My screen was stuck at what looked like a wall paper indicating installing apps until it finally asked to set TouchWiz back as default app. I had to use edge apps and voice commands to start anything until touch wiz finally took back over. 0622445c7fa6ea3a1736c1c36778fa34.jpg

Same. By the screenshots, it looked interesting but it needs some polishing and additional options before it is daily driver ready. Still neat to play around with though.

Anyone knows what happens if you accidentally place a plugged in phone onto a wireless charging pad?

If you want HD Calling, you HAVE to call them, (customer service) or disable Wi-Fi calling on ALL of your phone lines. iPad Air's included.

I have no issue getting HD calls and still have WiFi calling on my accounts but not actively using on the phone.

I performed a hard factory reset, twice, then set up again from scratch. Now, things are better. Android System less than 20%of my battery life. Gonna observe for a couple more days.

Really liking my 7 edge, really nice phone.... Rf is better than my N6 and 6p.

 

Holds onto lte longer and picks it up much better.

 

Glad I picked up the device.

As for rf, the gs4t beats it. Battery is decent though during the work day.

Finally customized my GS7E to my liking. It took a while to b/c many initial cases & TGSPs were crap & it took several revisions before the little issues got straightened out. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime's super easy return process.

 

My current daily driver setup is:

 

*GPEL black TGSP. It has perfect fitment, excellent touch sensitivity, strong adhesive, & plays nice with several cases.

*dbrand black leather skin on the rear glass

*Tauri or match2 clear TPU case with small front lip protection

This pic shows my 1st TGSP. This one, which is made by Glass Pro on eBay, had some slight sensitivity issues and had the cutout for the Samsung logo which I don't care for.
