    Does anyone know what is new in the update other than the May 1st security update?

    I'm seeing it too, but I will not download it until I know specifically what it contains. The changelog is too generic. I'm not risking it.

    Just install Phone INFO ★Samsung★, free from the Play Store. If it shows the changelist # as still being, #7694934, as it is for the last release, it will just be a security patch update.

    I was just wondering because the file was 354mb. The last update was only 48mb.

    From the Sprint website.
    The update has:

    Wi-Fi Calling improvements
    Battery life improvements
    Bug Fixes

    Find and update the software version on your Samsung Galaxy S7

    Doesn't list it, but the May security update is included as well.

    I had just done my usual random check & noticed the update.
    It's downloading now and I'll install it as soon as it's finished. I've had pretty darn good luck with Sprint over the past couple years as they don't seem to ever really screw with the updates from Samsung.

    Same here. Hopefully this is no different.

    I downloaded and installed yesterday for the Edge, but don't see a thread over there. Only 2 things I have really noticed are:

    1) Settings icon showed a notification number before the update was finalized. Same as when you would have a text the message icon would show the number. I don't remember ever seeing that previously.

    2) This update seems to have broken the font size functionality in the native text messaging app. Even with the setting set to something other than "tiny", the font always reverts back to tiny when you pull up an individual text thread with someone. Anyone else experiencing this? I've cleared cache, rebooted, etc with no luck. Honestly it isn't a huge deal for me, but would stink for those who need a larger font.

    My text size also reverts back to small/tiny. Fortunately all you have to do is pinch out to instantly resize when you're in the app so no huge deal for me.
    Otherwise all is up & running well.

    Cell standby is now in the top of my list on battery usage. It seems to have weak signal at my office and it hasn't before. Also, my phone doesn't seem to doze like it did before this update. I'm definitely seeing more battery drain. Highly disappointed.

    Well that does suck
    Have you tried updating the PRL that's really the only advice I can offer and I hope it might help.

    To racingvike - It looks like the 6/27/2016 update fixes the always-tiny font size bug introduced in Messages with the 5/26/2016 update. Now under Messages > More > Font size you can "Use device font sizes" or you can turn that off and use a font size slider, whose setting works.
