    I just noticed the new update on the NOTE 7 removes CONTENT SCALING. That's the ability to fit more icons per page. It was under settings/display/content scaling=small or large. I LOVED this feature and now it's gone.

    More icons per page was never in that section. Long press on a open space , and click the "screen grid" at the bottom. You can pick your rows/columns there.

    As for actual content scaling, it in the "Display" settings on VZW:

    Thanks Guys! Tried the long press and was able to do the 5x5 icons per page again. I checked against my wife's note7 that was not updated yet and she still has that option in the menu, I don't. T-Mobile update.

    That changes the resolution of the whole display. Content scaling did not.

    It made the messages in the notification bar way more readable for me. Is there any way to simply scale that up without lowering the resolution of the whole screen?

    Content scaling is gone on T Mobile on the new Note 7 replacement.

    i also used to use my Note 7 to light my fireplace very night. So thats another feature they have removed. Very upset, now its just cold all the time.

    Is that setting under your Display setting list? All I get is the Content scaling item on Verizon. Would love to have more granular resolution control like that. Wonder if it's hiding in an activity that could be launched?

    It's not gone completely...just factory reset your phone ...the content scaling option small or large will come up with the set up process...that's the only way for now...there is always changing the grid if you didn't feel like resetting but that only helps with icons

    Edge lighting is not showing in menu on my exchanged version: settings > display > edge screen > edge lighting

    Anyone else?

    Edge screen's not in the 'display' setting at all. I know there is a separate edge screen option, but no 'edge lighting' there either.

    You can go under settings-applications-default apps to have it ask you everytime. Under default messaging app it says default application selection. Click that and the menu comes up. New Note7 update takes away a feature!!!-1474624720796.jpg

    Mine is still under settings>edge screen. Maybe you have to assign people to it first?

    Also, someone showed a resolution changer. Is that different than in the power saving?

    Which carrier do you have? What do you mean 'assign someone to it'? I didn't have to assign anyone with original Note 7-I also checked in dialer/contacts options.

    On the Verizon phone, the resolution scaling is buried in the battery settings still.

    Man, I wish Samsung would put their foot down to the V of Doom. If after all this mess, a completely unlocked version of this phone comes out I'm buying one.
