    There wasn't much info in the what's new area just some bug fixes but it said "new features" and didn't go into detail. Can anyone elaborate?

    Does your version still end in PB8? If so, you're probably just getting the update that was released a couple of weeks ago. No idea what it did since it installed when I got my S7 a few days ago.

    There have been 3 firmware releases for the T-Mobile (USA) carrier minority variant of the S7, G930T, to date. They are the initial PB6 and PB8, both on changelist #7103056, which would indicate merely a security patch, and 2 days ago PC8 on changelist #7620545. The latter is obviously a firmware upgrade and bugfix. The Galaxy S7 Edge model is also receiving a similar update.

    Got the PC8 alert from Smart Switch when I was about to make a backup after leaving the thread, but it claimed my device doesn't have enough free space to install. Got it from the manual OTA check instead.

    My automatic update worked smoothly for me. Didn't know it happened as it checks for an update automatically at 0300 hrs Pacific. So far, so sweet.

    Ours is newer but ours is a carrier specific version on T-Mobile. You aren't in the US if I recall correctly.. So that may be the most up to date for your model.

    You do not have the T-Mobile (USA) carrier minority variant, G930T, but have the Global model, G930F. If you install Phone INFO ★Samsung★, free from the Play Store and post your, "Product Code:", we can see if you are on the latest firmware, (there are around 200+ different firmwares for the Global model).

    Just the S7 / S7 Edge on T-Mobile. You can manually check for it if you want.

    Yeah I'm 11 hours in good stuff. Battery life was great before & now better so it seems .
    Playing on Twitter with milk music active I'm finding slower % drop.
    Android System use is staying low as well.

    Hmm maybe that evil Snapdragon is finally being slayed lol
    Exynos fanboys please don't be mad go negtive if true , it's only a chip we are Samsung family

    Also, looks like Ram usage went down as well. I went from having 700mb free to 1.1gb free after the update

    When will GM-930F get this update?

    Well done T-Mobile (USA)! That is quite a sizeable update and increase in changelist #, (see post #2), for their Snapdragon model.

    Since firmware updates on the individual U.S. carrier branded models are at the discretion of the carriers concerned, it will be interesting to see how fast other U.S. carriers react with similar bugfix updates.

    When will GM-930F get this update?
    The T-Mobile update does not apply to the Global, Exynos, model.

    Yeah I understand, but Exynos should be getting a similar update soon with similar fixes/improvements. It would be unprecedented for US carrier models to receive superior software support than unlocked models so an update must be coming to improve Exynos too shortly.

    Not if those updates are related to the optimisation of the Snapdragon chipset. I agree that normally, Samsung push out any new firmware to their own unbranded and lightly branded models first but in this case it would appear that the bugfixes are Snapdragon related. Samsung do not, as you know, publish actual changelogs but just show the changelist #. I believe that in future we will need to treat the Global and U.S./Chinese models as separate entities for under-the-hood stuff as they have different chipsets, kernels and modems among other things.

    Walter:

    How do you have the PHONE do an auto update?

    I do not auto update my apps; does that affect the phone updates?

    I am now doing a manual check and update for the phone, but if I did not see info about the new update for the phone I would not have known about it. I want my phone to auto check for phone updates (not apps)

    Thanks!

    S7 and S7 edge on t-Mobile Network. If you haven't got it yet try manually checking for it in the software updates.
