If you want you can change the CSC and download the update then switch back to XAC. I did it today since I didn't want to wait for it anymore.

What's XAC? I hope it doesn't have battery drain issue. I like battery performance on current release.

The update was released a few weeks ago, either keep checking for updates or hook up the phone to the pc and run smart switch. Or flash it manually http://updato.com/firmware-archive-sele ... 163EE8F90B might wipe your phone.

I'm trying to get my battery replaced and I was wondering if anyone has used the walk in Samsung service centre in Richmond BC for any repairs.

This is a bit random but what are the chances the experience stores will have another promo for the S7 edge (trade-in, gear vr etc) or do you think all future promos would be for the s8?

Also - I haven't installed 7.0 yet on my s7 because i've read quite a number of unhappy posts about it, any truth to this?

Also - I currently have the s7 but I'm considering going to the s7 edge for the battery life.

Anyone chime in on the battery life between the edge and regular s7? worth the upgrade?

My S7 gets me through a work day but not a full day plus evening - if I'm not getting home until 11pm for example, my s7 won't last without topping it up.
