    The problem with disabling those is you have to re-enable them to take an update. I didn't do any of that on my S7E and still get awesome battery life. I disabled a few from the Applications setting, like NFL football, but only a small handful.
    Not true for me, but it can depend on what you disable. I've received two system updates since I got the phone in July after disabling the apps above. Just disabling apps doesn't always keep them offline either. I've had them reenable themselves. Disabling them with Package Disabler keeps them from coming back, and also keeps the Play Store from updating them. Using Package Disabler is like freezing apps on a rooted device with Titanium Backup.

    Your list is not as long as many I've seen, so maybe you got lucky on the update issue. But the App does mention that right in the product description as a possible issue, and I've read threads about it needing to be undone to update, too. Not that un-freezing and re-freezing is the end of the world, just something folks should be aware of.

    I absolutely love mine. And the water resistance really paid off yesterday when I dropped it into a bucket of water, and didn't realize it for over an hour. It's working fine, which is amazing to me. I'm also not liking some of the stuff I'm starting to hear about the S8. So I think I'll be sticking with my S7 Edge.

    Yes its still worth it. I still think I could have gotten a better deal with a OnePlus 3T but it doesn't have a good battery, good camera, waterproof so I like to keep my S7 Edge. Sometimes the edge screen makes me go nuts due to bad palm rejection but with time I got somewhat used to it. In short, get the S7 Edge.
