    If it's freezing that often, I'd wonder if some 3rd party app is causing the instability. Try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-25053

    If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely to be a hardware or firmware problem.

    Now I got it right. Uninstalled some apps which creates major heat. Once it calms down it picked up automatically. Another one is put off power charging off if you don't require it. He creates heat. Avoid using while charging.

    Note: Not all apps in the Google Play Store have been upgraded by their developers to be compatible with Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow and the Galaxy S7 and this can cause issues.
