    -Hands accidentally touching the edge - Some people are reporting that their hands are accidentally touching the edge. One solution would be to use a case.

    -Alarm not ringing when using do not disturb - go to settings - sounds and vibration - do not disturb - allow exceptions, then enable alarms

    I contacted optimum whom I have my home internet service with. They provided me with their modem and a netgear router. They claim that their settings for the router are ipv4. I cannot have bluetooth on and be connected to wifi. My wifi shows a strong connection but nothing loads. So if I shut off bluetooth, then it works seamlessly. Makes no sense.

    How do you view a photo here in this Android Central threads? When someone posts a photo I can't find a way to view just the photo to zoom in on and such, a long press and hold only brings up reply options, in most apps and such a long press I'd hit you bring you just the photo..

    I am not sure, however, you might try to start your own thread, perhaps someone else can answer your question.

    I had trouble with this and realized that the cable used makes a difference. When in doubt, use the cable that came with your phone.

    Good point. Any quality cable should work, but it doesn't hurt to try the stock cable

    Others may know this, but it was a surprise to me.

    With the screen locked, you can still swipe down on notification bar and access the quick settings tiles and the screen brightness slider. Some of the tiles are locked out, but you can switch between sound, vibration or muted, and turn on or off the following WiFi calling, Do not disturb, flashlight, Always on display, Airplane mode, Power saving (but not Ultra), and Auto rotate.

    Tapping on any of the other tiles will bring up the pin/password entry screen. Tapping the settings icon or Quick connect also brings up the pin/password keypad.

    The fact that you can toggle airplane mode on is troubling. That means someone who finds your phone, and knows, can prevent you from locating / wiping the phone with Android device manager.

    I just pulled the trigger on the S7 Edge, can anyone tell me if there is a proper holster (used without a case) for the S7 Edge? I can't find one anywhere online? For example, with my HTC One M8, Seidio carried a "Spring Clip Holster" meant for use without the case and I really liked it for use at work.

    I just got my S7. Upgraded from my S4 because of battery life issues but if not for that, I would still have it because I LOVE it still. New OS's never seem better to me. Always lose features. #1- alarm briefing gone since Kit Kat #2- anyone know how to make the Travel Wallpapers from the TripAdvisor App for the lock screen work on Marshmallow? I knew how to do it on Lollipop on my S4 and it worked great. Can't figure it out on Marshmallow. No briefing on alarm still. Oh and no IR blaster anymore. Wth Samsung? How is it ok to have a removable SD card but not a removable battery? Anyway, any solns to getting Travel Wallpaper back on Lock Screen via Marshmallow?

    I too, only upgraded to S7 Edge from Galaxy 4, but mine was because the 4 got killed by a car. Yanyhoo, I have a question. I am easily using both Gmail and outlook (via the native apps) for calendar, email etc. My issues are two: nothing seems to be automatically backing up to Google, not photos, not contacts. And when I add a new contact via contacts or phone, I am given no option to save to google rather than microsoft's annoying exchange. I want everything backed up, but I would much prefer contacts etc be backed up to google. Can anyone help?

    I see the product here. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Leather Holster Pouch Case (Red Stitch) - PDair

    Is it easy to take it out and put it back? I'm spoiled by the tight fit and ease with which I could remove it and put it back with my M8 and the seidio case free holster. Thanks in advance.

    Hi guys,

    I just bought a Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge (model #: SM-G935FD). I was wondering if this phone will work on all Canadian networks and be able to access the max possible LTE speed? Does anyone have any info on this? The guys at the customer service told me that it'll only be able to access 3G speeds if its not a Canadian variant and is being used on a Canadian network...which is a load of horse crap.

    Also, do you guys know if and when Samsung pat becomes available in Canada, would I be able to use this on a phone bought outside of Canada (model #: SM-G935FD), but is being used in Canada?

    Your link does not take me to a specific product, but I browsed the site anyway to see their offerings. Have never owned a PDair product, but I have this one on my S7 Edge now and love it:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HDTQTWI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    and I can tell you that on the phone it looks exactly as it does in the pics, fits like a glove, lets you release the phone easily from the case, and the cover gives full protection to the screen. It also comes with a screen protector that went on with ease. I have gotten many comments on how good the case looks, and it's really well made. HTH.

    NOTE: On that page you will find that style case for both the S7 and Edge, and you'll see the design for the S7 differs (as one might expect) from the Edge cases. So, choose carefully, as the product title (stupidly) does not mention the Edge, only the S7. Happy hunting.
