Just got my s7 edge for 1 month. I use it daily with a zerolemon battery case. Already have my phone close and not reopen until i sucess to boot into recovery. What i hate the most, its the update notice you cant make it disappear for good. Always come back. Other than that, this phone with zerolemon battery case is a beast. I can use it all day full bright all data,wifi,Bluetooth and gps on and still have lots of juice before going to the bed. I had to order it when i was in usa, here its sell at 160$ cad for a case....

So far so good, download and update was pretty fast. Like the new UI, don't think I need Good Lock anymore.
Need to look up a changelog and see if I'm missing any new features.

What carrier SIMs do not install bloatware upon first insertion?

For those who have updated, how's the update? I read that Nougat had a battery drain issue for S7/S7 Edge. Wondering if they fixed that.

Ya the interface looks a bit confusing but will probably get used to 7.0 in a week or so. The notifactions are hard to read

I had similar problem on my S7, took to Samsung repair center and they replaced motherboard under warranty. You may want to check there.

I've had my S7 Edge for almost a year now and for the last month or so it has really been giving me trouble. It would go into a boot loop but holding down the power and volume down buttons would fix it for a while. Today doing so does not fix the issue at all. This is the last time I buy a Samsung product - time to either go back to iPhone or move to Google's Pixel platform. The phone is still in warranty so I want to try and get it repaired that way. I don't live near a Samsung Experience Store, so what is the best way to file a claim? Through phone? I've tried online under the Samsung Account function. I had gotten a confirmation email but all fields are blank, and there is no ticket online... Chat is useless as they advised me to go all the way to Alberta (from Manitoba? No thank you!) to repair it. Very frustrating.

The S7/S7 Edge update went live this morning. I downloaded it at 12:01 AM and my phone was up and running at 12:24. So far so good, feels snappy but I just wish they kept the dark settings menu.

I bought my S7 from Samsung directly and I'm on Public Mobile. Anyone know when I will get Nougat?
