    So what browser do you have installed in place of Samsung browser? There has to be a default one there.
    Verizon is shoving Chrome down our throats.

    I searched for Samsung browser apk on chrome and there was a link to the app. When I click it, it takes me to that screen.

    MAYBE, just maybe, we can't get it in the Play Store because the Play Store shows version 3.0? Just seems odd that someone on an S6 could grab it in the Play Store (S6 on 5.1 which has the Samsung Browser 3.0)

    Most likely Chrome like Verizon did on the S6

    Has Verizon made a deal with Google for this? I don't see how they would benefit from this otherwise.

    No!

    This is how it always starts with Verizon's and AT&T's, "cloneware". The omissions, the add-on's, the bloatware, the lack of updates that are issued by them and not Samsung and eventually, the expansion of the system partition for even more bloatware and making the phones unrootable in future updates.

    It isn't just Samsung who have to kowtow to these carriers to do business in the U.S., other manufacturers do too. Ever wondered why, unlike the rest of the world, that there are no unbranded, stock Samsung handsets widely available in your local stores and why all carriers must have their own carrier variant?

    It has now become a standing joke with the worldwide stock Samsung users.

    "Think all Galaxy S7's are the same...
    Think again!"

    I don't think that's the case because I think other carriers have the browser. Pretty sure this is a Verizon thing

    Most likely never since Android is open and Apple / iOS is not. They can avoid it by not selling through the carriers (like Nexus) but then people wouldn't like that either.
    I would love that option.

    But not even Samsung has the brand loyalty and market clout that Apple does.

    Wow, so Verizon won't allow a Samsung app on a Samsung phone. Would be like not allowing the iPhone to have Safari browser.

    Ya know: the most likely explanation for not being able to download the browser from the Play Store is because Samsung hasn't updated compatibility for it yet. This isn't a problem if the browser is already installed which is why it's fine with other carriers.

    Edit: the last update on the store was Oct. last year. Just be patient and at least wait until it's updated before jumping to conclusions. Use FireFox or Dolphin in the meantime if you don't like Chrome.

    Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure last year on the S6s for VZW, there was no Samsung browser. Ever.

    Hmmmm interesting. Verizon must have made a deal with Samsung to take that specific model off the compatibility list on the Play Store or something as I'm fairly certain that the carrier can't just restrict what you can download off the Play Store.

    Edit: I dunno looks like it was able to be downloaded at some point: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...k-browser.html

    Oh wait are they talking about the stock browser?

    Samsung browser was not on the Verizon S6 as a default app but was made available at some point later in Google Play...cause I have it on my Verizon S6. I think the suggestion that all we need is an update for it to work on the Verizon S7 is correct as the "about" in the app says that it will be updated to version 4.something or other in March.
