    Did the S7 and S7 Edge get the update to customize the Always On Display with your own image? Or is it a Note 7 exclusive? Really want to use a custom image for it.

    Yeah that would be a shame if it's a Note 7 exclusive.

    I think it's due in the 7.0 update. Seeing as the Note 7 is now totally dead, it's be useful for Samsung to push whatever useful functions to the S7 and Edge

    Would be an excellent good will gesture on their part. Sooner than later.

    Samsung already announced that the S7 units will receive Grace UX and the updated AOD weeks ago shortly after the 1st recall, when they announced start of the Nougat testing for the phones. It's supposed to come with the Nougat update.

    Heres a Sept 22 article regarding it from Sammobile:

    Got my S7 Edge yesterday after handing back my Note 7 and the lack of third party AOD was the first thing I noticed. Hope they come soon as that was the feature I loved most about the Note 7 (stylus aside).

    The lack of third party apps makes the AOD nothing more than a digital clock.

    Samsung already announced back in Sept that they will put it on the S7 brothers with the Nougat update. The only thing we're waiting for is them to finish testing.

    Fair to say their test team has probably been rather busy of late - or not depending on which way you look at it...

    Tests do take time. On average Samsung puts out updates 2-3mos after Google releases for Nexus devices. Although it may take more now since 7.1 is already out. Looking at December for the update, for non carrier devices.

    Is there a reason Samsung can't just update the AOD
    App to do this, does it have to be done thru OS update. They issued a couple updates for AOD on the note 7 while we had it

    Yea, you'd think it would have been something they would have done before now. If it was available for the N7 they should have updated the app for the 7E at the same time.

    I assume they were just keeping it for the Note as a selling point and just haven't got around to doing anything for the S7 at this stage. We'll probably see it all bundled with an OS update.
