    Downloaded it today without a glitch. Don't see much difference on performance though (not like it needs it).

    I hope I'm not dreaming but after I did the updates I lost about 7% charged it back up and I've had the best battery life on this phone. I'm at 54% and just under 4 hours os screen time. I've been getting about 6 or so. I never in my life thought I would have an android phone hitting 8 hours of screen on time.

    Well done T-Mobile (USA). That is quite a sizeable update and increase in changelist #, (see post #3), for their Snapdragon model.

    Since firmware updates on the individual U.S. carrier branded models are at the discretion of the carriers concerned, it will be interesting to see how fast other U.S. carriers react with similar bugfix updates.

    In case if anyone is curious, the update didn't get rid of the annoying sd card notification when the phone is turned on each time.

    After the update, my AOD has been very dim. Unreadable in the sun. Wonder what happened there?

    The first time I tried AOD, it dimmed itself after a few minutes and that was the way I thought it should be. A few other times I tried it, it was always bright. Maybe it was always supposed to be dim to keep the battery from using the battery too much.

    I just tried AOD on my phone and it started out being dim for a few seconds and then went full bright again as it was before.

    So far I agree. I usually don't buy carrier phones anymore but not much choice in the US.
    This is 1... The 6p a close second. Love them both

    I am still thinking of picking up a 6P one of these days and also ordering a S7 Edge unlocked version from BestBuy so I can root it. The best thing is, is that neither of those phones will come with the junk carriers insist on adding on.

    For now though, I still feel the S7 Edge, is the best phone I have ever owned,

    Battery life seems better (but not by a lot), edge panel preview (notifications) still seem slow to appear when screen is off, but the screen over-sensitivity issues, including the random Multitasking button presses, seem to be gone now. That's about the only thing I've noticed since the update.

    Why would it? hehe It's like the notification about headphone level after each reboot. You only get it once (and Samsung chose to do it this way), and that's it. This one was supposed to fix (or maybe it was the last update?) issues some people were having with multiple notifications on the SD card even after the first one was dismissed. Now THAT'S annoying.

    The Always On Display 's Time and Clock stays in the same spot during charge. It moved up and down every minute before the update. I am not pleased about that, concerning that the display could be burnt in. I hope T-Mobile will put it back.

    Thank you for notifying us of that. I will check if it's happening on mine. If it is I would recommend turning it off. No question screen burn in is a risk then.

    I just tried it and yes, it is frozen in one spot. It also starts out dim and then goes full bright after a minute.

    Me too. Damn T-Mobile or Samsung. That was a really stupid thing to 'fix'. I'm turning mine off now. GoreJak, thank you for letting everyone know. You probably saved some people screen burn in. It may be worth your starting a new thread about this so people are aware, or even emailing the folks on AC...

    Generally it only happens on store demo models that have been sitting on the same screen all day. So, theoretically it is possible with this if you have the phone screen off and the secondary display is live and in the same location for a long duration. That's why they had it constantly moving before this update.

    I just spoke with a T-Mobile tech, she said there will be another update release. Also she said this latest update was Samsung's. I had turned my AOD off this morning, so....... I guess the waiting game starts.

    If I place my phone face down or have it in my pocket the AOD is off. I can see it come back on when I take it out of my pocket or pick it up off the desk.
    And it moves on the screen when I pick it back up.

    I don't mind. I tried the Always On screen and since it's so useless (other than having a clock there, for which I already have one on my wrist), I turned that off after a few hours. Since it took a while for this bug to 'show up', I'm guessing I'm not the only one that doesn't use it :P

    I think if you disable the Dark Places option (which you have to if you want to use your phone in dark places or inside pouches that cover the sensor, like waterproof ones) that wouldn't work and the screen would still be on, at least in a pocket or bag...not sure if the face-down is using position sensors rather than light ones.

    From what I've heard, the next full update deals with camera and fast charging issues.

    T-Mobile launches Enhanced Voice Services for clearer, more reliable calls | Android Central

    This was posted and from the newsroom link on T-Mobile .. the update has been explained!

    The new LG G5, which launched April 1st, is EVS-capable right out of the box. And the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge got EVS through a software update this week. And we’re working towards EVS being available on 7 T-Mobile smartphones by the end of the year.

    After this update I can say for sure that my phone is running way smoother and the animations on the edge panel don't lag anymore. Also I think this updated added the ability to share the video clip recorded before the picture if you have motion picture enabled.
