Samsung Galaxy S7 - A brief review on IP68 certification.
The Pros - Most of the overall phone. The smudges on the screen and what not are pretty minimal things. Really really like(d) the phone overall, but....
The Cons - Definitely don't go about pouring champagne on it like Lil Wayne. Although it's all over websites and advertisements that it is water resistant, it still has water indicators on the phone that will void your warranty.
I've owned the phone for 4 days and the phone has gone into the pool once. Fun to do at first, everyone gasps, and you pull it out working fine. Which mine is in fact water resistant, however the lenses do not keep out the water like the other components. Condensation has made my camera inoperable, not in the sense that it's broken, but in the sense that every photo makes it look like it's in the water. And after going back to Samsung, they refused to replace the phone and said that I would have to pay to fix the faulty components in the defective device (because it was "water damaged." ha)
Long story short, just because it's water resistant, doesn't mean you should have it anywhere around water. And if you need a waterproof case on a water resistant phone, than I don't see any real reason to own this particular device.
Mir, 15 Jun 2016Hi, It might be software glitch. Backup your data and format your phone to factory settings.... moreWell I think i have the issue sorted out, I disabled Fast Cable Charging and removed the facebook and messenger app, which seems to do the trick, after which i got 30 hr battery that includes two nights of inactivity though.
Had the Note 5 for 8 months and the iPhone 6S for 6 months before I decided to sell both and just get an S7 Duos for convenience. I must say that the S7 strikes the balance between performance, screen size, camera quality, and excellent build. I was never impressed with the camera of the 6S for me it was mediocre having owned both the S6 flat and the Note 5 and now the S7. Battery life on my SM-G930FD is excellent for I can easily last a whole day running more than 3 hours of SOT with around 40-50% battery juice left. Camera quality is outstanding especially in low light plus Samsung really upped the standard when it comes to build quality. The S7 is an excellent phone and I am very satisfied with my choice. I do not regret that I sold my Note 5 and 6S for the S7 at least now I can just worry about one phone and won't be carrying around too many gadgets daily.

I was having the same problem and realized my BT speaker was still connected to the old phone, which was still on and nearby. Disconnecting it there allowed my S7 to hook right up.
This is the best phone ever😊 i'm using it for about 1 month and its amazing. Fast speed, camera the best and very nice battery life.
I have been using the verizon S7 since last 12 days, the first 3 days were nice and the battery would last more than 20 hrs with screen on time of close to 5hrs. Then the problem started now the battery wont last more than 10hrs and i get a screen on time of only 3hrs, which was what i used to have with my old 1st generation Moto X. Almost all the battery is used up by Android System and Android OS.
Can any one relate to this problem, should I be worried about this battery.
The screen. Shattered with one little drop. Not pleased at all. They want 200 to fix it.
I have a device which works at bluetooth connectivity, that device is working with motorola phone having android version 6.0.1 but not working with Samsung S6 & S7 having same android version.
I got s7 I charged it using adaptive fast charger but battery is not charged 60% in 30 miniutes but gsmareana is saying that it have fast charging 2.0 please help me
[deleted post]Even my friend (Apple iphone lover) note 5 better than 6s. He has iphone 6s then he need to buy another phone but that time s7 not available so he chose note 5. He told me that his note 5 for better camera than 6s and for application/ games

I've had mine for a month now and I still get 20 hours of battery life when it's fully charged
