s7edgeuser, 19 Jun 2018Hi. Yes. You need your sim card in for your carrier to get oreo update. I actually checked and Oreo appeared for my S7E without any SIM cards being in it. Is that normal?
Downloading it now.
s7edgeuser, 18 Jun 2018Mobile data Doesnt need to be connected .just Download from wifi. Always from wifi. Thanks.
I mean, does the sim card need to be in the phone for it to detect the Oreo update as an ETA download?
So after Oreo update my device runs very smooth no lags at all,applications load faster,camera is slightly better, overall performance is better and that includes battery life which has also improved by I would say 10 %.I got 5:50 screen-on time with moderate usage thats means YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp, Spotify no gaming though.One last thing, I set my screen resolution on FHD and wifi is always connected but no bluetooth or location activated.

The S7E is now in the drawer, I am going to use it as a backup phone. Right now, there is no sim card in it.
My question is, will the phone still get Oreo if there is no SIM card in it? The phone was bought sim free from Carphone Warehouse and can be perfectly used without any simcards (not locked to any carriers).
I am simply asking if Oreo will be available for ETA download, or that requires my simcard to be on and the phone to be connected to my carrier (Vodafone UK).
Thanks and appreciated.

I've noticed some great improvements as;
* Battery is improved and it lasts longer than previous version.
* Camera has been improved and some new features have been added.
* AOD is improved and aome new functions have been added, just tap on time clock and choose different styles etc.
* Screenshot has been improved and now you can capture a scroll screenshot which means you can capture the screenshot of the whole chat in a single picture.
* Phone is now very smooth and there's no lagging at all.
* There are a lot of other improvements too.
I think you all should install update because it has improved and makes the phone better.
I wonder why we didnt get 1st may security patch yet? Last one i got was 1st April. I thought maybe that would have been included in orep update.
Rapi, 17 Jun 2018Have u got the pink line or random reboots?No random reboots. I got a pink dot on my screen few months l after buying it. and i had to have it fixed at samsung centre. Luckly it is under warranty. And I havent had mine a yr yet . But my friends have s7 edge since it was released and had no pink line problems at all. And like ive said only readva few who suffered from that on thier phone. So i would say that most users didnt have that problem. Hope this helps.
lab.mehedi, 17 Jun 2018Should i buy s7 edge right now?or any better option at this budget?I personally would say yes buy this phone and now its on oreo there is so o many new feature that makes it better. But even without oreo ive always said this is amazing phone.
