    With the Note phones I was able to delay the password or fingerprint entry for a period of time (5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc.) after the screen goes dark. I was also able to define my home wifi network as a "safe" zone, where I wouldn't have to enter my password or fingerprint.

    Just got the S7, but don't see these options anywhere. Is this possible with the S7?

    Where you able to delay the screen lock? How are you liking the S7?

    Yes, I was able to delay the screen lock.

    I had the Note 7, but returned it today because of the fire issue. I made the mistake of getting the S7, instead of larger-screen S7 edge. I should have researched it first, but thought both were the same screen size. Coming from the 5.7" screen of the Note, I find the S7's screen to be a bit small. Other than that, except for the iris scan and a few smaller features, there's not much difference in the phones.

    Verizon is basically providing it as a temporary phone for the next 2 weeks when I will be exchanging the S7 for a Note 7, once the battery issues have been resolved.
