This was my first samsung galaxy. And probably the last. I just cant believe-how can they not include the fm radio in the IP68 device?? (where you could listen to radio while fishing, for example). Even my old SE Xperia Arc has the fm tuner!
I wanted to download nextradioapp but the Phone displayed a message that the app is not available in my country (nigeria) Any help pls.
I think qualcom processors only have inbuilt radio tuners but not exinos which are supplied to other parts of world. We feel cheated with absence of fm radio and Ir blaster which luxury Samsung could have gladly included in such costly phone
it drops the satisfaction rate when such a high end and high price phone doesnot support basic apps like Fm radio. even the cheaper price phones have these in built.
i wish samsung enables it soon for all.
Is it possible for me to use FM in S7 edge mobile in India ( Bangalore).
If it is there kindly let me know d procedure.
If I put a t-mobile sim in a sim free phone will this let me get the latest update including fm radio? And will it simultaneously install a load of carrier bloatware, thus rendering the whole point of buying sim free pointless?
i want the same radio function on g900f .. pls samsung sama pretty pls
Sub.Zero, 05 May 2016So why FM Radio is not present on international models by default??
Hope the S6 gets FM suppo... moreFM radio does not present for the same reason like SD card slot, or removable battery.
Samsung wants you to pay for streaming services, consume more and pay more for mobile data.
I live in Portugal and for me is simple. No FM Radio = No Buy! I wont accept that a high end device that has a pornographic price tag, has less features than a medium end device (even more when previous flagships already had fm radio active, and that this feature exists in all communication chips, just waiting to be activated).

Hope the S6 gets FM support now!!
Joonius, 04 May 2016Wait... I was under the impression that FM radio was removed at the hardware level?????That never the case. FM radio chip always there. It is part of ghe chipset itself. The question is whether or not the vendor activate it. Usually they dont activate it so they can do business and gain profit from internet radio. But since binge is free anyway, i dont see why they should block the function anymore. Good then.
The update is fine...your problems are device specific. running quite nicely here.
Carriers wanted it removed so we would use more data on programs like iHeartRadio. I just installed it and downloaded Next Radio and it works perfectly. It uses the headphones as an antenna. T-Mobile was letting people get free audio anyway with binge so I don't think it bothered them.
