    Is the 5% a Sammy thing or a Nougat thing?

    It's part of stock Android as well.

    Though I strongly advise to recharge as soon as you hit 15%. Going into the single digits can affect battery lifespan.

    You can add the brightness to the notification center you pull down. To do this, pull down the notification center fully and press the triangle that is pointing down and select 'show control on too

    Right it sounded like they were saying it's 5% or nothing, like the choice is removed.

    Oh well if there's still a choice, it's not an issue. My LG G3 on Lollipop, very old stuff:

    Right most users should never see the 5% mark on their phone, best practice is to start charging much earlier.
    Well the point is they removed the functionality where you can set the device to enter Power Saving Mode when the battery drops to a certain level, which was 50%, 20%, and 15%.

    It is HORRIBLE, I hate my S7 thanks to Nougat.... notifications font is so small, the text messages are awful.. where are my "favorite contacts" assert the top of messages? I'm terribly sad...
    I hate they redid the favorite contacts as well. And the tiny circles for contact photos.

    I joined this forum for 1 purpose: to find out how to block Samsung indefinitely from bricking my phone. I don't see anything promising here. I emailed Google, chatted with Sprint & with Samsung. Finally emailed FCC. I then just received an iPhone4 16 GB from New York for a different carrier since Sprint talking merger dealing with notorious pirates. Publicly Comcast or TMobile as possibles in talks with White House. Nougat has nothing listed ANYWHERE that I'd find better than my phone as is. Sans Update notifications ("postponed" which is not acceptable). I keep wifi off, keep data off 80% of each day or more, auto updates off, block most bloat/ malware ala SprintZone. But keeping data off not a solution. Better off with iPhone 4 longterm in that case.

    PS, I also disabled background data. These features are scattered around the OS, mostly in settings. i've also rebooted & cleared OS cache, storage download cache & so on. About as much as I could find so far without taking root.

    The nougat update has been a wreck.
    I'm on tmobile, but I had the leisure of manual update and I was still messed over. Even if I had not opted for manual update code, it took me 3 days to clear the 1.5 GB of space needed, not updating would have been as simple as not enough space.

    While resolved, I had key apps including Google play store not loading after the update and thankfully, I persisted or I would have lost things with a hasty f reset. I miss the kind of real backup one gets with root, more than OS and Ron controls.

    I put Brightness on top and an ugly widget on my home screen, but that's not a true fix to having a menu button instead of auto toggle in the pull down.
    The lack of turning on power saving at my designation already led me to a 5% warning without notice. I still need to take my time and possibly money now to go get an app for that.

    At least I get to keep full disc encryption, I refuse to use their half baked file or fingerprint without having a pass lock before fingers are useful.

    You want control, reliability. Go get something with 1-3 years proven track record, rooted and unlocked. Risk and innovation or reliability, control with less updates, including security updates.

    My biggest issue with the update is the fact that DOZENS OF MY PERSONALLY CREATED TEXT SHORTCUTS ARE ALL GONE!!!!! (I thought to myself: Fine, I'll just do it over and recreate them again) But wait.. THEY GOT RID OF THE TEXT SHORTCUTS ENTIRELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'VE SPENT SO MUCH TIME CREATING ALL OF THOSE AND I NEED THEM FOR MY DAILY LIFE/WORK/SCHOOL EVERYTHING IS GONE AND I DON'T HAVE A OPTION TO EVEN CREATE THEM AGAIN!!!!!!!
    Got to spend a little time playing with settings - why did you go looking under physical keyboard for the dictionary when there is no physical keyboard on the phone? Press virtual keyboard, then you should have access to the dictionary. You do need Google Keyboard (now called Gboard) installed, as the article you linked to instructs you to do.

    You can increase the display density to make the notifications larger and easier to read.


    Thank you, I'm able to adjust the sms font and other fonts, but when you pull notifications down from the top - the font is terribly small, and can't be altered..

    Also lollipop had text "favorites" you could put at the top ... instead of having to look up the most used contacts... ughh... I'll figure out something, maybe I can put contacts oon a screen as a "direct sms" ..

    The "swipe" function sucks, I hate the new keyboard.... etc. etc... there's so much to hate...

    My settings had DO NOT UPDATE AUTOMATICALLY... it did it anyway...

    sigh...

    I didn't see the answer but you can create text shortcuts by going

    Settings, general management, language and input, virtual keyboard, samsung keyboard, predictive text, then select text shortcuts.

    Took me forever to find it but hope it helps

    Horrible, horrible update... this not coming from somebody who's not got no idea about tech... obviously, their QA process was fairly non-existent... Mine an S7, updated last week, my GF's, an S7 Edge last week... both are slower than a dog! Shouldn't take 5-10 seconds for actions to execute... sometimes, it's bad enough, where on mine, it's a few minutes, and even once, had to force a power cycle! She's ready to go back to Apple, and frankly, after this update, I don't blame her... I can't have projects going live and NO PHONE! ... they basically semi-bricked my phone w/this update! Crashes everywhere, slowness always, hangs quite often... how in the world did this update get out there? And no real options but to try to spend MY valuable time, which I have little to none, to FIX their screw ups! ... NOT ACCEPTABLE! I'll personally, even as much as I don't like features of apple or non-features I should say, seriously consider alternatives next time... - Samsung Pay... great, oh wait, can't wait 5-7 minutes in line for it to SIMPLY SHOW UP ON MY SCREEN! - it's in ICU right now as I'm concerned, and not going to make it unless they get it fixed ASAP... sad...

    there is something wrong with your phone... 3gb free out of 4gb total means 1gb used and that is 25% not 9%

    I also am KICKING myself for allowing the update to install. It's not just that everything is different, it's that it's no longer User friendly. But my biggest complaint is that my keyboard forgot me. It used to almost always know what I wanted to say, now it only gets it right 1 outta 3 words. And when I decided a word need to be capitalized I could touch the word and then touch the caps button and the word would show up in above my keyboard with a cap. Now when I go back and touch the word, THAT word isn't even THERE! Just OTHER words that it thinks I might have meant to spell instead.. is there ANY way to fix this? Otherwise, I need to know how to correctly (without losing all my stuff) flash the previous OS onto my phone. I think it was MM 6.0.1? Or was it 6.0.2? I'm not even sure... please help

    I'm using Galaxy S7
    SM-G930T
    Originally from T-mobile. Unlocked using AT&T prepaid.

    I woke up today to find out my phone magically updated software to 7.0 Nougat. I woke up to a nightmare...I can't use my phone like I used to anymore. They changed everything, icons, user interface, display, sizes!! They removed my settings/presets/customizations everything!!! This is not the same phone I bought over a year ago!! It's too different!!!

    My biggest issue with the update is the fact that DOZENS OF MY PERSONALLY CREATED TEXT SHORTCUTS ARE ALL GONE!!!!! (I thought to myself: Fine, I'll just do it over and recreate them again) But wait.. THEY GOT RID OF THE TEXT SHORTCUTS ENTIRELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'VE SPENT SO MUCH TIME CREATING ALL OF THOSE AND I NEED THEM FOR MY DAILY LIFE/WORK/SCHOOL EVERYTHING IS GONE AND I DON'T HAVE A OPTION TO EVEN CREATE THEM AGAIN!!!!!!!

    For those who don't know what I'm talking about:
    How to create android and ios keyboard shortcuts

    Other issues include:
    WHY DID THEY MAKE THESE STUPID FRAMES FOR THE ICONS?!!
    WHY DO I HAVE TO SWIPE THE TOP QUICK MENU DOWN TWICE TO ACCESS THE BRIGHTNESS?! WHEN BEFORE THE UPDATE YOU JUST SCROLL FROM TOP TO BOTTOM ONCE THEN YOU CAN CHANGE BRIGHTNESS QUICKLY!!
    WHY DOES MESSAGING SHOW A BLANK AVATAR NEXT TO EACH MESSAGES WHEN I DON'T EVEN HAVE PHOTOS OF ALL OF MY CONTACTS?!!
    WHY DID THEY MOVE THE MESSAGE ICON FROM THE FAR RIGHT (where I got used to) TO THE MIDDLE AFTER EACH END CALL?!!
    WHY DID THEY REMOVE THE KEYBOARD CUSTOM TEXT SHORTCUTS?!!

    These are only a few of many issues that for me was completely unwanted updates/changes.

    Some of you are probably happy about the new updates. But please understand, I'm extremely upset about this and I'm genuinely stressed since yesterday morning. It's already 7:30am and I have not slept since my phone updated yesterday because this is heavily weighing on me and I'm suffering. I'm trying to figure out if by some miracle I could just revert my device back to before the update yesterday. The changes are too drastic that it's almost like a completely different OS. I've switched to Android from IOS about 6 or 7 years now and have been happy with no major problems...until now. ANDROID 7.0 NOUGAT I'M COMPLETELY DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU RUINED MY ABILITY TO USE MY PHONE!!! YOU REMOVED A VERY CRUCIAL FEATURE THAT AFFECTS MY DAILY USE OF MOBILE DEVICE!!!

    Yesterday, while on the road, I know I'm not suppose to be using any device while driving but during stoplights when I need to send a message. I need to compose the entire message word-for-word letter-for-letter instead of using my previously available preset shortcuts. I could've sent long messages within 5-10 seconds using my preset shortcuts but instead I needed to spend almost 5 minutes at the stoplight while people are honking behind me telling me it's already green. Someone will probably tell me to get an aftermarket app...WHY DID THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not quite the same but you can pin your conversations with your favourites to the top. When in the conversation click the 3 lines at top RHS and down the bottom it has a 'Pin to top' option.

    I am Verizon, but this may work for you. To get the brightness slider on the first swipe...swipe down with 2 fingers to show all icons... on the bottom where you see the brightness slider> TAP THE LITTLE CHECK MARK to the right>...select> show brightness control above the notification panel... For getting the apps to show without the frames, go to settings> display> look for > icon frames> tap to open oprions> select> ICONS ONLY, not the with frames option. Hope this helps with these two issues.
