I noticed that my phone wasn't holding a charge as well was before after I installed an update a few weeks ago after putting it off. Then I updated my phone again on 12/17/17 and this morning my phone went from 100% to 34% in 2 hours, even though my apps list shows the one I had open was uses less than 1% of battery power per hour.
I hope they get this fixed soon because I know it's not my battery that's the problem, it's their update.
my samsung edge 7 has been messing up. the fast charge is on btw in the settings. not it took me 2 hours to charge it till 20%
Daniel, 08 Dec 2017Same here. Updated this morning, my phone can not find any network to connect to. And I'm ... moreMy phone no longer wants to connect to any Wi-Fi and it's killing my data! Hope they fix this soon!!
my s7 edge suddenly stopped fast charging just yesterday. Some green screen with downloading suddenly appeared... quite weird... to get rid of it, I had to restart the phone. to be honest, i'm fed up with Samsung.. the reason I bought my phone was screen and fast charging, but both failed to last long. the screen was burned, having light lines, and now it's fast charging. SHAME!!! Samsung! it's my last samsung product. no decent after sale support, stupid advice of customer services.
Too all of us s7 users having issues with the update! I let my phones battery totally die, plugged it in and let it charge till about 80%. Started it back up and so far it seems to be working fine. Try it and let me know your results!😁
Just updated my s7edge yesterday. Freezes constantly, shuts down randomly, and goes thru a charge like no phone I've ever owned. Was perfect before the update I installed 12-14-17. Need a fix fast.
do not download the update!!😠
your s7 will be useless if you do!!
Sara, 08 Dec 2017Having the same problem here. They want me to factory reset my phone. Um, NO! Fix the update!!Other people have done factory reset and get the same thing so don't bother!
do not download the update!! it will screw your phone up!😠
samsung better fix this crap fast!!
My phone updated itself and now I have no notification sound for texts and ALL of my pictures have been erased. SO PISSED...
My samsung s7 started to die on me all the time after the update. Sometimes its at 40%-60% then it completely shuts off and i go charge it and its at 0%. Theres times where it will get to 20% then i see the numbers go down till it gets to around 6% then it stops. Then like 10 seconds later it dies. I also noticed if my phone is on 65% or less then i go into snapchat then 1 min later it dies. Oh and a few days ago i was using my phone, which was around 68% then it restarts on me, its still at about 65% then a min later it restarts again, now its at 0% then it completely turns off on me. Its so damn frustrating. I litteraly get about 30min-1hr of use before it dies and i have to recharge it again. Ive been with samsung since the galaxy2 (which i still have, obvioulsy not the same but it still works fine) and ive never had issues with any of them until now. Am i the only one with this problem??
since the last update i have no more keyboard and the phone is stuck in a loop. After rebooting i have about a minute of time to use apps (wihout keyboard) and then it will turn to the padlock screen "unlocking" until i have to reenter my pin and then back to "normal" but without keyboard. And loop agian. I wiped the cache, no difference.
update rendered my phone useless my keyboard is shot my sensitivity went through a the roof so MAD
IT does not greet sent wirrssee thank yhiid. Keyboard USSELESSS add you can Saree. Overly sensitive touuchh on everything mmyphhone is USERLESS TOO MERRRRRE DO NNOTT UPGRADEE
Since the latest update... Everything seems to be working fine except that i am unable to open Netflix or Amazon prime app
FYI, I just talked to Android (who's in charge of the development behind the updates), and they said that they're aware of the lagginess/bugs and have submitted fixes for them. No timeline on updates (or if they'll even get done), but it sounds like the haven't stooped to the level of Apple just yet (finger's crossed).
After the update my phone lags and freezes...I backed everything up and factory reset my phone. Still experience the same thing every now and then. The dialpad icon isn't centred when you open to make a call. Even certain settings are not registering, like the flash for notifications - I turned it off but it's still activated...not happy right now.
