i don't update my s7 after read your comment. just want say tanks guys for say your experement and help other
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2016Who do we contact to try and get this straightened out? Does anybody know same exact thing that happened to my Samsung s7 after latest update... I'm defending Samsung because of my great Samsung s3... I feel helpless...someone in Samsung should be responsible for this hassle....
Sounds like that the problem might be with the S7/S7 Edge with the Exynos processors. The update for me (which I haven't done) weighs in at a hefty 182MB. Is that the same for others with similar hardware?
Not gonna update after reading these comments...will continue checking
Phone is roasting hot, battery life drains much faster than before, takes longer to charge, phone has crashed twice and massive struggle to get it back on. Shows up "Samsung Galaxy S7" over and over but wont turn on.
Same here - update drains the battery in half the time and it takes a lot longer to charge with my S7. Highly disappointed in Samsungs' flaky updates. This is a consistent problem and I had the same problem with my S5 before I upgraded to the S7. Phone hardware is great but the software updates are like rolling the dice with battery life.
I updated Sat the 25th and by Sunday the 26 night, I had no screen at times, won't charge and the screen flashes like a strobe light. It will not charge. I feel like every time I update, the I mysteriously have to get a new phone within a week. My S5 fingerprint security locked me out when I updated. My S6 was forever slow after update and now this with my S7. Unhappy customer
neeraj, 25 Nov 2016after latest update, the screen is heating up even in while lying idle & battery drain is... moreI have the same problem and now know it's because of gear vr service. my phone overheats and battery drains 30% over 2/3 hours. I cannot uninstall this app my phone will not allow it.
After the update last week, my s7 edge becomes very hot and the battery life is 50% less then before.
This phone is not updating because my wife phone has video call now and mine has not ,we both got 7 eage i thing I just go back to apple
Mr. E, 26 Nov 2016I'm curious about the update, can everyone who has updated their phones, post what their phone... moreSince the update me anf my wife have had charging issues with our phones and it over heats and has never done that before. They gave her a loaner phone for now. The update messed up both pur s7 and s7 edge
The always on display, before the update used to display the clock only but after the update the entire screen is powered on, tho with very less brightness ( visible at night / dark room), causing battery drain & heated screen.
Turn off always on from "settings> display> always on".
Mr. E, 26 Nov 2016I'm curious about the update, can everyone who has updated their phones, post what their phone... moreUpdated earlier this month to G935TUTU4APK1 on T-Mobile (Snapdragon). ZERO problems. It actually resolved battery drain issue that I was plagued by from the update prior.
I'm curious about the update, can everyone who has updated their phones, post what their phone's processors are? What I'm getting at is if the troubles are specific to the Snapdragon or Exynos processors? It would be greatly appreciated by you kind folks, to see if it's bad software code, or hardware based.
I've trouble when unlock with my left finger before update but fingerprint more responsive right now
