    I thought that the Samsung browser supported ad blocking. Is that not the case?

    How is ad block browser compared to chrome? Is it a realistic option for a browser?

    Adguard is probably the best not root option.

    The built in browser on the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge doesn't support ad blockers

    Verizon removed it from the S7 & S7 Edge. Hopefully, Samsung will release a compatible version to the Play Store. I have been using the RS Browser with pretty good results. It states it is optimized for Snapdragon processors and I confirm built-in ad blocking. Pretty fast in my experience and only a few web pages had any issues rendering, which were usually solved with a refresh.

    Adguard! It blocks ads in apps and in anything else you do on the phone.

    You can only get adguard by going to adguard.com. Google doesn't allow it in the play store.

    I've used Adblock Plus for the Firefox browser and it worked great.

    Using RS browser. It's basically an optimized chrome with ad block built in. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes chrome's layout

    Adblock fast works great with the Samsung browser. I've usually used rs browser in the past, but I think the stock with an ad blocker is the way to go on this phone.

    I'm not too worried about Adgurad being near the top of the battery usage stats. My phone is still giving me a full day of standby and 4-5 hrs screen time.

    As for Adaway, that requires root access for those who may not know. Like Adguard, Adaway blocks ads in apps and in anything else you do on the phone. You don't need to install an adblocker for your browser because both of these apps blocks ads in browsers too.

    Adaway is free whereas Adgurad has a subscription fee. For those of us in the states, we can't root our S7 Edge phones currently so Adaway is not an option.

    Yeah, I've rooted/unlocked every phone I've had. With this phone and marshmallow, I don't feel the need to root anymore. I would root basically for adaway, greenify and titanium backup to freeze apps.
