    Then Google how to check manually for updates on verizon's S7 edge, that should help. The software update won't appear on your phone automatically, you have to actually manually check for it.
    I did manually check under system updates but it says no update is available

    Sorry didn't read through all the pages but wondering if the LED notification light dims like the screen when in a dark room or gets brighter when in the sun etc... I liked this about the note 7 cause the s7e led light is bright as hell at night lol thanks

    I don't think it changes brightness from what I can tell as it's pretty bright (too bright) when changing phone at night

    Ahh hopefully they bring this feature over... It was a small thing but I really liked it about the note.

    i put my phone into DND at night and there is an option to disable the LED in DND mode. not quite what you're looking for but solves the bright light when sleeping problem.

    Yes finally they added that. But it doesn't seem to affect the charging led. Or at least it doesn't on my phone

    When I noticed about the Charging LED after buying the S7 edge, I went looking for a 3rd party alternative until Samsung realizes that it's a stupid mistake that it seems that they are one of the few that doesn't have a way to turn the LED off while charging, Hello!!! you have a Wireless Charger option, so we can't put it face down at night to avoid having the whole room lighted up. So, just download Macrodroid, it's free for up to 4 Macros, for this you will only need 2, it's very easy to create and will take care of the issue immediately. I even forgot about it until now that I read this thread.

    Went to software updates again on my Verizon s7 edge and finally received an update. After a half hour installing it ended up only being the October security patch update. Starting to think I'm not getting the beta.

    Well on the note 7 the LED light would dim down like the screen does if you have auto brightness enabled... So say your in a dark room the screen dims down an if you get a notification an the LED starts blinking it's also dimmed down an so on if your in the sun or a bright room they both get brighter... The edge is just bright all the time so I was hoping with 7.0 they would incorporate this

    I know this. I originally wasn't able to get in but tried again a few nights ago and got accepted. Been checking for the update ever since.

    Yes, there are times when the OK Google command just wont work, however it will work fine once the actual Google app is opened. I also find that I have to set it up from scratch by re-recording my OK Google command 3 times. It'll work for a while and then just suddenly break again.

    Looks like this update breathes new life into the s7 edge. I can't wait for an official roll out since I missed the beta.

    I'm pretty sure mine didn't. My first one was dim all the time and then the second one was normal. Maybe mine were defective. Still got the 2nd because I haven't received a box. I'll have to check.

    I signed up for the Beta when it was released, but when I was checking for the update on Monday (Tmo Customer) it kept saying No update Available. Something made me check again today and there it was. Just downloaded/installed it. It was laggy at first, but seems to be catching up to itself. Im waiting for it to charge bc the update seemed to suck my battery down a bit. I like how it looks so far. Can't wait to see what other changes are in there. I never played with an N7 so I have no clue what to expect.

    Looking at the updater-script in the update.zip for the Android 7.0 beta for Verizon, you won't if you took the current PI3 October Update recently released:

    Code:
    abort("Package expects build fingerprint of Verizon/hero2qltevzw/hero2qltevzw:6.0.1/MMB29M/G935VVRS4APH1:user/release-keys or Verizon/hero2qltevzw/hero2qltevzw:7.0/NRD90M/G935VVRU4ZPK4:user/release-keys; this device has " + getprop("ro.build.fingerprint") + ".");
    The current beta PK4 update.zip is looking for PH1 or PK4 according to what I see, maybe there will be a beta update that will allow flashing/updating to the beta with the PI3 update...who knows?

    Does that mean I can't even side load the update from xda anymore?

    Unless you ODIN back to PH1, side load won't work either because it'll run that same check on your phone before updating. The update.zip is patching files specific to PH1 firmware, so it could cause who knows what to go wrong on PI3.

    I don't know if you can ODIN back to PH1 from PI3, I haven't heard of anyone trying that yet. You would need ODIN and the PH1 .tar.md5 files and try it to see if it'll let you.

    Thanks. I guess I'll just give up on getting the beta and go back to using my Note 7 lol

    After using the maximum power saving mode, most of my apps got deleted. Including the Samsung Members app to give beta feedback so I can't post the feedback. Looks like the apps are slowly coming back by themselves, but I'm glad this phone not my daily driver
