I don't even have the Occulus app on my s7 and it still gets extremely hot and dies very quickly. Anybody know how to fix it on mine? If not I'm trading it in for a new one without the update.
I Uninstalledid oculus and my battery is still not holding! Any other suggestions?
My 3 month old S7 edge has been barely usable since the update a couple of days ago. Keyboard functions were all.messed up and the battery life went to nothing extremely quickly and even with all running apps off the phone was heating up.
I found a post that pointed the issue to the Occulus VR Apps. Once they were all removed my phone went back to normal. There are posts now online explaining the issue.
Yes, after uninstalling Oculus my phone did go back to normal after a while. Still remained hot for like an hour, but once it was cooled the battery life was normal. I have not tried installing it.
Do all of us having this issue have Oculus installed???
After experiencing the same issues post update I removed Oculus on my GS7 and now I'm back to normal.
Question: Has anyone tried reinstalling Oculus? If so what was your result?
Absolute garbage. Phone is having issues downloading apps, takes forever to charge, and gets crazy hot.. never had these issues before the update.. PLEASE FIX!
Looks like the majority of us are all having the same problem with the latest update; versions:
G930FXXS1BP18 / G930FVFG1BPH2 / G930FXXU1BPHJ
My questions is, if I uninstall the Occulus apps, will I keep all of my Occulus games (and my progress!) that I already have when I reinstall them?
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2016Since the update ive been having issues sending and receiving messages. Same with picture mess... moreThis is the only issue I've been having. I'll get texts HOURS after they were sent to me, or get a notification "cant receive mms".
Update has done the same for me. Hot, losing battery alarmingly fast,text buggy and laggy,shows texts eternally in transit ( but actually sent ).
Gee thanks att....way to make my s4 look far more appealing
Was having same issues. Read the posts here, tried rebooting into safe mode and that seems to fix the issue.
The update never completed for some reason until i went into safe mode. Now my battery is charging again like normal, and it feels like its cooling down, getting texts like normal again.
S7 battery draining and very hot. I uninstalled oculus and it fixed it immediately. Thank you!!
I have 4 S7 Edges in my house. Whole family upgraded 3 mo the ago. Since the update ALL of us are noticing a HUGE decrease in battery, around 1/3 of what we used to get.
I don't know guys, but my S7 edge working fine since I upgraded it yesterday September 29, 2016. I observed the heating problem is now gone after the update and the battery seems good, I think. I have 80% battery after the update started 6 pm, and I do some normal things on my s7 edge like using flashlight, taking photos a video, opening some apps and games, editing photos. And my battery as of now 8:35 am it is 57%. It's only my observation after updated it. I have the exynos version of the S7 edge.
I haven't have problem with my S7 edge since I have it. I also installed "Package Disabler" to disable some bloatware that I'm not using. I hope this help guys.
Phone lags, Heats up to hell, messages wont send and are having trouble coming in....this update is really messed up.
Same problem, phone was dying while on wireless charging pad. Noticed apps are getting stuck in update loops in Google Play (doesn't matter what app it is).
Uninstalling the Oculus apps, all of them, fixes the overheating issue. After uninstalling them my heat gradually dropped until it was back at the normal temperature.
I just went into oculus and was prompted to do a update. I agreed and let it do its thing. Minutes after the update completed my phone cooled off and battery is holding a charge like it should. Also noticed a HUGE improvement on operating speed and lag.
Very happy camper...
