    Nope. Even after the first time, fingerprint doesn't unlock lockscreen for ne. Takes me to keypad for pin. Fingerprint still works with Samsung pay and signing into websites via stock Internet app. Just won't unlock lockscreen. Am I the only one?
    Try going into your settings and see if the option is off or on.

    You probably have Nova activated as a device administrator for unlocking your screen. I disabled that, which removed the double tap to lock screen. Now I just press the power button to lock. Fingerprint unlock was more important than double tap to lock for me.

    Yep it seems to be the Nova double-tap. Disable that and my fingerprint unlocks the screen every time. Double-tap to lock it and only a pin will get you back in. Explains why every now and then my fingerprint was working... when the phone locked itself due to timeout setting. But when I used double-tap to lock, it was a no-go. I'll see if I can report it to Nova. Thanks for the detective work, guys. One of the many reasons I love these forums.

    If you have Nova set as an administrator on your phone, you'll probably be experiencing this issue.

    For me it's just using double-tap to lock. I still have Nova as a device administrator but disabled the double-tap thing in gestures. Now my fingerprint unlocks the lockscreen every time. Yay.

    So I used the Samsung+ app to do a live chat with an agent. Since I did a factory reset to try to resolve the issue, they recommended that I take the phone to Best Buy and have the Samsung folks there do "something" (I forget what she called it). I'm hoping that works. Otherwise what? Replacement phone???
    Update: I'm thinking the problem might be Nova. I don't know what Nova has to do with the lock screen, but when I am having the problem, Nova is the default launcher... and the problem is happening at a high clip... maybe 95% of the time. When I switch over to Touchwiz, the fingerprint unlocks the phone 100% of the time.
    It could either be that or you may just need to do a Factory Reset. I would do a FDR first before going through any replacements.

    After the update, battery life seems to be worse. Although it's been getting steadily worse and worse since I bought the phone two weeks ago. An hour of screen on time seems worth about 20-25% of battery life

    EDIT: Just realized this was posted in the Edge section. I have just the regular S7

    Does anyone have a full list of what is included?

    I can tell you right now that I have absolutely zero lag when typing. Prior to this update the keyboard was lagging very bad.

    It looks like ATT has released two updates so far, the one with the April security patch being the latest.

    The one I received first was the previous update. Apologies for the confusion.

    I received the update yesterday. I noticed right away that my wifi issues were fixed and the screen and overall response have improved.

    Updated today. Lost the ability to unlock the lockscreen with fingerprints. Have to key in the pin. Anyone else?
    On the s7 edge every time you restart your phone it will prompt for your 4 digit password. After that you should be good unless you thumb print security setup is wrong.

    After this update I've noticed more lag on the phone and considerably worse battery life. Back to that tethered life...

    My battery life is terrible now, I had problems with my phone resetting by itself. It would mostly happened when I was downloading videos on youtube, it would just restart. I called att they said there's a new update out try that to see if it fixes your issue. I had 1 reset so far but the battery life is terrible now.

    All of you with issues and worse battery life, have you done a wipe cache in Recovery menu? It's always recommend to do it after an update.
