Hello this is a question to help somebody testing if this app: EVA Facial Mouse (link here) runs fine on a Samsung Galaxy S7.
This person is affected by ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord and causes a progressive paralyzation of the limbs and end up disabling the ability to speak(see more here). Maybe you remind the famous ALS Ice bucket challenge (link here).

I'm one volunteer of an ALS support Association (South of Spain region, Andalusia) and help them selecting enabling technologies. One ALS affected person is thinking about buying one Samsung Galaxy S7 and I'm checking if it is possible to use all the accesibility tools needed. In particular we are very interested in a new app (EVA Facial Mouse, link here), designed to fully control your smartphone using the frontal camera detecting the movements of the head. You move your head to the right, and a pointer moves to the right. You stop, and it taps where the pointer is. For this people, who use to keep the ability to move much longer than other limbs is a real enabling tool to use the smartphone.
I need to confirm if that app works in the Samsung Galaxy S7. This smartphone is quite new, and has the latest android 6, and I found no reviews of the compatibility of EVA Facial Mouse with Samsung Galaxy S7 in internet.

Please, can you try it and confirm if it works? Apart from doing a good action, later you may surprise your friends using your smartphone hands-free :)
Best regards.

I'm not sure if it works; However, you may want to visit the Developer's website or send them an email to see if the app is supported on the S7.

I've just installed it on my S7 edge to test. It recognised my face and I was able to control the curser with my head motion.

It does have limitations according to the docs so your best reading up on that, but tha app does run on the S7 ok
