I am updating the update right now on Brand new Galaxy S7 Ede from Sprint. Phone before update charges like a snail. I only made it from 84% to 85% within last 30 minutes. I am noticing only once when the phone overheated so hot it was horrible to even hold it. No freezing issues, no lagging and no abnormal issues. I will keep posted on what I do notice. I have 14 days to return the phone and if this update is bad I am moving to the APPLE IPHONE which is the last thing I want to do but Im def up with these updates especially after the Samsung Note4.
Hey guys just wanna ask what is the take of Samsung on this issue. Do they give any response please do tell if any of you guys have received any information regarding this problem please
Please do all you guys who are having this issue have contacted Samsung. I have also same issue of battery drainage as you guys have do tell me after this software update. If yes what is Samsung saying about as it is not related to one or two customers it is related to many.
Chiming in also with the sudden occurance of SUPER fast battery drain and painfully slow charging all of a sudden. It's ridiculous.

Jake, 08 Dec 2016My s7 edge is G935F version and update was 168.93mb. I was not gonna update it with all those ... moreThe last updates is very good i use to get that black screen shutdown every two days but now after i installed the 163mb 160+MB my s7 edge is working like a baby
nmeuvdast8, 05 Dec 2016After the update, my unit worked for a few days (with regular crashes). Last night, it crashed... moreI feel your pain. Had a dodgy home button on a s6. Took it to the Samsung store, warned me of the possible 2 to 3 week delay and there is a parts shortage worldwide. Also was told there is a chance that it would be replaced not repaired. It took 2 months and over 10 phone calls to get an answer from them(mind you in less than one week I was told I was getting a replacement S7 Edge for my s6, but 2 months for someone to tell me exactly when I was getting it). Now I can't even update the thing in fear the software will be corrupted. Smart switch failed last time, lost all text messages, so I refuse to update the new one in fear I will lose something again or worse still,kill the whole phone!
After the recent updates my mobile s7 edge start freezing and sometimes start by itself.
can anyone help me is it software issue or hardware issue ??
nothing wrong with android os its shitty samsung with there awfull updates that fuck peoples phones up they should invest in android dedicated developers to do there updates not some some kinda wierd china collage dude fucking assholes samsung are

My phone overheats and even when I'm plugged in using my phone it drains faster than it charges. It also restarts frequently since the update.
Risanti, 07 Dec 2016The recent update is annoying. My battery life was reduced to 50% i dunno how to fix this. Hop... moreUpdate has made my battery efficient s7 edge to a snail charging phone (takes forever now with lightening charger!!!) And it's sucks battery life like a percent a minute! Almost not exaggerating!! Super duper annoyed. I checked all my app settings...I'm quite certain it's the update especially if I'm not the only one Complaining about these issues. Also my phone is freezing mid app or between app changes. This update needs improvement 😠
Jake, 08 Dec 2016My s7 edge is G935F version and update was 168.93mb. I was not gonna update it with all those ... moreNo, it is not fine. Phone overheats and battery drains. I have the pictures of battery drain If you really want it.
I got 170mbisb update. Until this update I had many updates but all were like same. But after 170mb November update, phone overheats, battery drains. Remebers me Xperia Z mobile data active bug. If this or similar bug is still causing troubles after 2 years in this high end top device, I'm done with android forever man enough. I'm tired of incostency and lags and heat. Waiting for December update to fix this mess. Otherwise no more android adventures anymore.
My s7 edge is G935F version and update was 168.93mb. I was not gonna update it with all those comments but I had my doubts because all those comments had different problem and no similarities. So I decided to update my s7 edge. The updated version was "G935FXXUIBPJG" and have ZERO problem with it. I can't believe I was looking at the software update screen for about a month thinking that it might actually break my phone. If you have same model as me and same update file with 168.93mb update, just do it. Don't listen to those comments. It's FINE.
I bought my phone today. And my software is automatically updating but it was unfinished because i had a terrible internet connection.
After reading all your comments, it makes me worried now. :(
The recent update is annoying. My battery life was reduced to 50% i dunno how to fix this. Hoping someone could helf me figure this out.
I updated my samsung s7 edge 2 days ago. The phone became very slow, goes frequently hanging . Charging battery very slow. Takes half an hour to get 15% from 5 %.
Pl do not update the latest update from samsung.
