    My S7Edge updated to Nougat Wednesday night and things were fine at first. Thursday morning the phone restarted after a few minutes of use. Then, on my 40 minute train ride into work, the phone restarted 4 more times. This continued throughout the day approximately every 30 minutes and it would be come very hot.

    I reached out to T-Force and they had me do a few troubleshooting steps that didn't correct it and ultimately had me do a full master reset. I performed the reset last night around 8pm and everything seemed fine. Then this morning, a restart. It has done it about 3-4 times today since I woke up around 6am.

    I reached out to T-Force again and they told me to either wait it out for a software update or exchange it. They did mention that they've received a lot of customer calls about it.

    Question here .... Samsung supposedly did a lot of testing before releasing Nougat for updates. Why after the testing are there so many problems? Sounds like testing wasn't very thorough?

    Did you try clearing the caches?

    Oh yea, tried everything that T-Mobile support could walk me through via the phone. I factory reset twice and cleared the cache more than twice.

    After some thinking on my train ride home this evening I had an idea. I have a 256G micro sd card. I came home and took it out and the resets stopped. It has been over 5 hours with no reset. I've cleared the card and reformatted it and am going to try it before putting my stuff back on it. I think that may have been the issue but only time will tell.

    You know back when I had a note 3 it had terrible quirky issues like that that mostly resolved once that card was removed. Those can become corrupt.

    In my experience, Samsung phones only work well with Samsung SD cards...

    My wife's S7 edge has had a SanDisk 200gb card in it for almost a year with no issues. And it has over 4 thousand photos and countless videos stored on it.

    YMMV, just my personal experience.

    Same here. Actually I've never had a problem with a Samsung card in any phone now that I think of it.
