Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

It seems the recently released updates for T-Mobile and Verizon are more than just the security flash..  300MB and Verizon lists a number of fixes (but some seem carrier related).  So far a few users on reddit are saying positive things.

New update this morning. States only security but is larger than normal.. So may include some fixes other carriers have noted.2f28813160c5536a79c4bbe39ed71ef9.jpg

I was really hoping this included the LTE calling beta, but it does not. Maybe next time.

Has anyone else noticed that, since the latest update,  their GS7/GS7 Edge screen randomly "flashes", and then seems to revert back to what was on display 3 or 4 seconds before the "flash"?

No, I have not noticed any screen "flashes."  But I have been occupied by these random epileptic seizures that I started experiencing lately.

Awesome to hear, that's why I never went to the S7 or S7 Edge it just wasn't worth it, both performance and feature wise my Note 5 stays right with the 7 series. But the 8 I would hope is a lot better, maybe I'll go check it out soon I am getting that itch, and plus I never use the spen anyway lol. How are you liking the battery life of the +? better than the S7 Edge?

 

Edit - Well the temptation got to me, just put in my order for the S8+, it will be here tomorrow. Good deal online no activation fee so it was $82.24 out the door, also ordered a case on Amazon for $15 which will be here tomorrow as well. Not a bad $100 spent. :D

$82 out the door from Sprint?   Lease?  Legacy plan upgrade?

I think I finally figured out a big part of my screen lock. That or they finally did some patching that helped. I shut this off. Combined with other high horsepower apps like waze and Google drive and Bluetooth and pandora it was placing my phone into screen lock and fouling up access to unlocking it. There were times the easiest way back in was to reboot the phone. 018bce5418dff693b1b32db29f9b14d2.jpg

Got an update on the GS7E yesterday. Anyone know what it was for? Security, I imagine. But I had also been experiencing severe screen mirroring issues with my 2016 55 inch Samsung TV. After yesterday's update, my screen mirroring function appears to be working just fine. For reference, my boyfriend's gs8+ NEVER had issues with the screen mirror feature and he did not receive the same update.

The newest update ends in QF3. You can look in this thread when it came out, but I think it was around the beginning of the month. There haven't been any updates since then to my knowledge.

Yep. Sure enough. I just checked my software version and it ends in "qf3." For whatever reason, however, it only just hit my phone the day I made that post.

Looks like just a security update (July 1st). Still no calling plus, unfortunately.

Ok I'm pretty careful with my phone. But can someone tell me what they think this is. 3f5f40a6219854592f236418db68efdd.jpg

I sure hope so. I would love to try it and then use it if it works well. I have two phones (one personal and one for work), so I can always use the other phone if I need to look something up while on a call, but I think it will be much more convenient to have calling plus enabled.

Based on how small it was likely just a security update.

I was hoping the security update included calling plus.

 

Oh well, maybe next month or in a few weeks.

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
