    Sounds like lots of issues. Some people may have them and not even know it like I seldom use video recorder and never use snapchat.

    I find that my split screen app keeps popping up like I'm holding down the multitasking button.

    I've noticed the same thing on my vzw edge. There's an app on the playstore that disables the multiwindow function and that seems to have fixed it but it also turns off the ability to multitask window... Kind of a crappy comprise

    This article shows the Exynos as having a 10-30% better battery life and describes the Snapdraon 820 as, "Relatively poor battery performance", It also notes the poor audio and video slo-mo for the U.S. models which we have seen complaints about on this and other forums.

    Also, the overclocked quad core Snapdragon is noticeably slower than Samsung's own octa core Exynos as this video demonstrates...

    I noticed a crash when trying to get into the Do Not Disturb settings.

    Did you ever get a resolution for this? I'm having the same issue. Whenever I try to go into do not disturb settings the settings app crashes.

    I did. I opened up those settings by long pressing the DND quick settings from the notification panel. After that, I was able to open up those settings from the regular settings page.

    Every morning my screen lock settings are changing from one minute after screen shut down to twenty minutes. What in the world? Seems like a security issue.
    This is still happening every single day. So dumb! Probably something AT&T jacked up.

    I saw a GS7 Edge on Swappa today that looked like the paint on the home button had started peeling off. It looked black in some places. Thats weird because I thought it was covered by glass.

    Anyone seen this before? You think Samsung would cover this under warranty?

    My US version of the Verizon S7 edge did a factory reset on its own. I now have no access because it asks for a synced gmail account. I have 2 accounts synced and it recognizes neither. It says it needs the owners email. I am the only owner. Verizon's solution? I wait 3 days to get a refurbished unit in the mail. It's 18 days old and is my primary work number.

    Guys I am having an issue with the glass at area arround the speaker grill . There is a spot around it which is a bit darker black and looks like a smudge. When seen under direct light it is very easy to notice. I cannot determine though whether this is something at the top of the glass or inside and whether that might have compromised the water resistance. Does any one of you has a similar issue or experience which such a problem and what is the best thing to do. Here in my country I must wait about 30 days if I return it under warranty so if it is just a cosmetic issue I can live with it.

    It does look like the glass might be lifting some, does it change at all if you press on the area?

    No, it does not change at all. It just looks like a smudge but cannot be cleaned so I'm guessing it's something inside.

    If you can go to the store I bet they'd replace it if they have any replacements on hand.

    Hoping we can get a thread for anyone experiencing problems with their new S7 Edge. This isnt a hate thread, I love my new phone. I am seeing a few possible issues though:

    1. Straight from the box, the device is running very hot, only when screen is on. (yes, I've rebooted and closed all apps).
    2. I tested the waterproofing by running under the faucet. Just a light flow of water, but AFTER fully drying and waiting for a good 30+ minutes to test, it did distort the speaker for a few hours, and the phone would freak out if I tried to plug in to charge. Again, it was FULLY dried and I waited 30+ minutes. It took a couple of hours for the cable charging to work again.
    3. Turning on ULTRA power saving mode completely killed my google now launcher settings. Removed all widgets and shortcuts, other than 1 google folder. This may be a known issue, just mentioning it for others.

    Again, I am LOVING this new phone. Every phone ever made has a few quirks. Just sharing info here
    No problems with overheating here. Gmail pushes through reliably but I've set my push settings every 6 hours or so as I'm more concerned about my work emails on Office365 being pushed as they arrive. No slomo gate on my phone either. I haven't had the need to try power saving or ultra power saving and use stock Samsung skin with the Android N theme turned on. All fine on my device.

    However, I'm on the Exynos version not SD.

    My s7 lasted 13 days. Was really hot to touch after every charge and during periods of extended use. On day 13 the screen completely died (pitch black). Phone was still working but couldn't see anything on screen.

    Referred to network who sent it off for testing. Got it back earlier this week after being repaired so hopefully won't happen again. They didn't say what the cause was.

    Is still quite hot though... 🙁

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I have a Verizon snapdragon model S7 Edge. No SD card. I was trying to record video in 1080p60 mode, and at about 1 minute in, it froze and got stuck. Would not respond to literally anything. None of the buttons would do anything. The phone got extremely hot, and after about 15min the screen went black. I tried holding power vol down and vol up and it finally went to the boot menu, where I was able to restart it. Battery had gone down 20% during this process, but it has been fine so far. Why in the world would it not be able to record video?
