Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

Recommended Posts

On the new update, can someone test this for me? Set Location to GPS Only for a few hours & then check Battery Usage for Android System. Is the GPS constantly on for almost as long as GPS was turned on or was GPS active for just a few seconds or minutes?

Got that as well this morning, but forgot to do it since I wasn't on Wi-Fi. Doing it now. Thanks for the reminder.

Really wish I hadn't taken through PD3 update. Battery life was twice as good before.

Same here. PB5 was the best for battery life. I don't think the May update will fix it either. I'd love to be proven wrong.

 

In the meanwhile, I've been decreasing my standby drain through an app called ForceDoze. I can now get > 6 hrs of SOT with everything on except sync.

Lookie here! All 3 factory firmwares!

I have successfully downgraded to PC5 myself, but can't get the PB5 to work, I always get a bootloop.

 

The uploader says he has successfully downgraded from PD3 to PB5 (sans bootloader) soooo your mileage may vary.

 

But at any rate, pretty cool.

OK, thanks. Would GLW446C work also by any chance?

Rokform about to release their locking mount / magnetic mount case for the s7 edge.

Great setup on my bike.

 

 

 

Still prefer the Speck Candy Shell for daily carry where I don't need a mount option.

The update seems like another good one. My phone's been off the charger for 13 hrs & 19 mins and I'm at 40%battery left with 3 hrs 19 mins SOT.

This is my first Samsung device. I was a bit worried about their history of updates, but I'm impressed. A timely update each month. This is my first Samsung device, but it may not be my last.

Any of you guys using the GS7 on T-Mobile or AT&T?  If so, does SignalCheck provide an accurate dBm value for WCMDA/HSPA?

 

Mine just shows No Connection.  I don't think the Sprint variant is affected.

Anyone else still having issues with WiFi calling enabled and receiving/making HD calls? I just experienced my first ever HD call on this phone by deactivating WiFi calling, but I want both :(

    • Son not gonna give up that treasure trove of 2.5 spectrum for cheap, $12 per share minimum.  Gonna love my May 2018 calls!  Cha-ching! 
    • PRLs do not affect LTE connectivity — they are only for CDMA. What you are observing must be a coincidence. As Sprint and Open Mobile are still integrating their networks, Band 13 will probably come and go quite a few more times before you’ll be able to properly connect to it.  It’s hard to say. Although I may be wrong, I think that if the merger does goes through (which it may or may not), it will go through everywhere. 
    • Update: Did a PRL update (55069) and sightings of B13 using Signal Check Pro are less frequent know in my area. Before this latest PRL, I was able to see between 2-3 B13 signals everyday for the entire time that I had the app open but not anymore. There is a B13 in my area at -98 dBm that's constantly disappearing from Signal Check Pro. As for roaming charges when I was using Open Mobile, there are none and the roaming data allotment stills at zero. Two question for thought... If Sprint and T-Mobile merge, what could be the implications for PRWireless in Puerto Rico (Joint company between Sprint and Open Mobile)? Would the DOJ step in to prevent a 3 carrier merge in PR? Or would it go thru making a super telecom company in PR? Or maybe the DOJ allows the merge in the USA but not in PR... Lastly, could the rollout of Sprint VoLTE be affected in PR do to Open Mobile's equipment?
    • Why not link the the actual report instead of a 2nd hand telling of said report? https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sprint-corp-m-a-t-mobile-us-exclusive/exclusive-t-mobile-sprint-make-progress-aim-for-deal-next-week-sources-idUSKBN1HX3G6
