I updated my galaxy s7 yesterday and it's a disaster! No audio or video at all and other problems. Samsung better sort this out soon or it will be my last smartphone l buy from them. This is a shame as I have always told my friends how good they are. They also took out video calling on the s7 without telling anyone knowing, which was very underhand! If I had known this I wouldn't have bought it in the first place. I am starting to consider not buying Samsung phones in the future!
Since September update my battery takes forever to charge and drains almost 3 times faster then before. What gives?
Is it just me or this new update ( s7 edge ) is saving lots of battery life?

Since the update ive been having issues sending and receiving messages. Same with picture messaging. Anyone else having this issue? Because it is driving me nuts. Went to AT&T and they replaced the sim card but it did nothing.

I have found a way to temporarily fix it. Go to Settings->smart manager and hit 'clean all'. It helps, but you have to do it over and over again, which is annoying.
Bought my s7 edge last april and since I have not received software updates. My friends aldready got 2 updates. But after eeading all you comments I'm lucky that I have not updated mine. No problems at all with the battery
Candace , 16 Sep 2016Yea i notice my phone gets really hot to and my battery is dieing so fast this update sucks.I had the same problem after updates. My phone was hot and the battery was draining so quick.
I noticed the OS was using most of the battery power.I was getting warning that my cloud space were at it's max.
I turned off automatic cloud update and my cell phone is back to normal and not hot any more.

PaulI Have the same problem. I installed the update last monday. my phone gets crazy hot for no reason. Normally when im at work from 0900-1700, my phone goes from 100% to around 80% battery. Today it went from 100% to 62% from 08.30 to 11.30. This update is straight trash. Anybody know if is possible to revert and if so,.. how to do it?

Guys which firmware are you on? Im currently on G930FXXU1APGJ, everything runs butter-smooth. But I got a notification about new update: G930FXXU1BPH6 / G930FOZS1BPH1 / G930FXXU1BPH1, 164,71 MB in size, and since Ive read this comment section Im scared to update. Is this the malicious one? Im using S7 flat dual sim FYI.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016Downloaded the new update on my Galaxy S7 edge phone and now my battery life is going down fas... moreSame here, I used to get 5-6 hours of screen on time, now it's down to 2-3 and the Android system is using the most battery life.
The recent problems with the GN7 relate to upgrades recently distributed for the GS7 and several months ago the Lollypop to Marshmallow for the GS6 issued by Verizon.
I had the unfortunate experience with the GS6 that as soon as the upgrade was done, automatically overnight in my case with no recourse, it went into the battery overheat, un-commanded shut down and restart cycle, finally ending up with a brick while carrying the phone to a computer to back it up. No amount of key combinations or praying to various gods cured the various issues or in the final case raised the phone from the dead.
Fortunately I was 51 weeks into a 1 year warranty and had the phone replaced and immediately upgraded to the GS7.
Please Note:-The following has not been verified within official OS or hardware developers or suppliers.
Discussions with various developers of phone apps and OS enhancements not related to the the official sources advised me that there was a lot of testing on virtual machines and not on real hardware.
Those developers that did not test on real hardware found that the same problems of un-commanded restarts and battery consumption beyond design parameters and overheating were real issues when they went to release on real hardware.
Please proceed with caution when an upgrade is offered and turn off automatic updates and only upgrade after research and testing proves the safety of proceeding or if it is warranted at all.
Thank you for your time. END RANT.
Downloaded the new update on my Galaxy S7 edge phone and now my battery life is going down fast. It used to last all day that's why I loved this phone so much now I'm literally watching it go down every minute.
Samsung S7 Edge did the update through the night last night. Within 10 mins of taking it off of the charger, the battery went to 81%. Cannot access phone, continually resets itself over and over.
What the hell is anyone meant to do with a phone that continually resets? Samsung need to fix this and pronto or they are going to have a lot of angry customers...particularly if the media get a hold of it.
