My Galaxy S7 downloaded the "Marshmallow" update this week, and just like 2 years ago with the 5.0 "Lollipop" update, it was a nightmare. Last night my phone just died for a few minutes, unable to get it going. Many apps, including texting, no longer have voice function and the auto-correct now alters everything I write. Device is generally slower. Apps now look strange and are much harder to use. Whole device is now much less usable than before update. Was thinking of getting a second S7 phone but that's now on hold.
I don't want to hear that I'm using it wrong, I know how to use my phone. Why can' they just leave well enough alone? I know they have to update the security, but they mess around with the apps so much they are no longer worth using.
Maybe the Google phone is next for me.
I've had my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for quite awhile now since the first time i purchased it. This new software update restarted my phone automatically but the thing is, i don't know if this software update would ruin the phone or improve it..
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2016same here... is there anything we can do??Same here. After updated I had 70%, using it as normal and went down to 39% already in 1h30
After upgrade battery goes down much faster. Same apps running but power usage much higher. I would not update your S7 for now.
Does anyone know about the firmware Sprint/Samsung/Android sent to my Galaxy 7 Edge today?
I believe this is the same update that was pushed via T Mobile over a week ago. Not sure though, so if anyone has gotten a fresh update now, please share.
abc, 12 Apr 2016The next update will totally remove touchwiz.glad to hear that.
Overall very Good Phone but with this kind of high cost phone should have zero defects.
Right from First day I facing issue of apps getting crashed most annoying is getting Â“Unfortunately,com.samsung.faceservice has stoppedÂ” reported to samsung solution provided is Factory Reset. I have told them it is reproducible when we go Gallery each time, I expected if I tell the root cause they may fix it with some patch in future. I think this is smart stay feature issue I hope Samsung will take up this issue and work for Fixing it
Even Overheating during charging & Gaming did they miss adding cooling liquid for few phones which was the SP of this Phone?
Nimz, 12 Apr 2016Had pre-ordered the Samsung galaxy s7 edge and have been using it after changing from Note Edg... moreI am from South Africa and my S7 rebooted by itself quite a few times.You will have to get it checked out.Samsung South Africa recommend I sent it in for repairs
Had pre-ordered the Samsung galaxy s7 edge and have been using it after changing from Note Edge. The edge screen is similar to Note Edge, i just miss the Stylus Pen. But overall the S7 Edge is a great phone, just had a couple of times when the phone rebooted itself and a couple of times the screen itself was behaving as if some1 is touching. till i had to lock the phone then unlock and to an extent restart the phone. Otherwise the phone is a perfect companion and the best thing about this is the Battery life. It drains very slowly even with heavy usage. Thanks Samsung for this beast
raka infantri, 11 Apr 2016so....samsung doesnt care about recently announced liquid jade primo that destroy s7 in 4k vid... moreare you referring to the same Acer Liquid Jade Primo that scored a MASSIVE 56 hour battery endurance?.... LOL

AnonD-459687, 11 Apr 2016Another sheeple caught in 4K hype.its not about hype...s7 is a flagship after all, so ppl expecting best performance from it.
