Same problem man :( No battery life issues though. Only heating. Anyone else?
Well when I say battery life issues I mean that Android System and OS are using up ~900mah according to Stock battery stats page.
Otherwise im still getting like 12-15 hrs with 4.5 SoT

I crosschecked the camera thing with my friends At&T s7 and his front camera has less detail than mine. Its almost as if Beauty face wont fully turn off.

Are you on Snapdragon 820 or Xynos?

Why have the T-Mobile Galaxy S7. I am very upset that T-Mobile and Samsung have locked my version loader. Is there any way that I can get the unlockable version 2 work on T-Mobile?

G930FZ is the Duos version with DualSim, the G930F has only SingleSim. Don't know about root or roms, google it.

What do I lose if I disable the Galaxy Apps app? Is there any stock apps that update through this?

    Hi, I recently got an S7 VZW, so I wanted to know since I'm a T-Mobile user, is there any possibility to activate VoLTE on it? Or any way to put a differente firmware to get better options on the Mobile Network settings? Thanks!

    Hi mate

    You have a Snapdragon S7 ( Verizon) and you are a T Mobile user...i guess you are not in Venezuela, anyhow you may have better luck if you ask in the Verizon forum or in the T Mobile , this forum is for the international version ( Exynos)

    ---------- Post added at 07:35 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:31 AM ----------

    Hi. I have a S7 from an operator, it's unlocked from factory but firmware it's from carrier. Can I root and install a custom ROM? It's exynos version SM-G930F.

    Another question: when flashing with Odin will I trip Knox ?

    Thanks

    Attached: several screenshots about my device


    Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 using XDA Labs

    hi Mate

    Yes you can install an unbranded firmware in your phone ( Odin)

    Yes you can root ,install a custom recovery and then install Custom rom , this will trip knox , warranty loss and no more Samsung pay

    Flashing official firmware with odin will not trip knox

    Where are screenshots stored? sdcard/Pictures is empty, but both screenshots I've taken show up in the Gallery app. I'd like to be able to access them through ES File Explorer though.

    I didn't feel this question deserved a dedicated thread, so here it is:

    I see lots of people using package disablers for unrooted devices and sharing their disabled packages lists and all. However, I find myself a bit lost because I cannot find much info about WHICH would be the most reliable/less error prone, etc...

    I already got BK Package Disabler Pro for free through some promotion, but I found Package Disabler Pro and saw that an XDA editor uses EZ Package Disabler.

    Anyone has some experience with these could point me towards the "best"?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm using Package Disabler Pro by policedeveloper
    I like it because it allows import/export of lists, color codes items by system, bloatware, etc

    One key thing I've learned though, whatever app you use, you should enable everything back in Application Manager before you disable items with your app.

    Does anyone have reset problems? In every a few days, when I was surfing or just switching apps, phone freezes and restarts by itself. It happens less after last firmware update but still happens. Maybe an app causes it but I am curious if it happnes lots of users:confused:

    Yep, happening on my model as well. Usually before mine restarts it sporadically disconnects and reconnects to my Wi-Fi, I've performed a factory reset and it seems to occur less often.

    hi im a newbie
    I just want to ask and help on my GAlaxy s7 sm-930FD globe locked.
    I just flash a TWRP 3.0.2 using flashify but i already installed a TWRP 3.0.0.
    and all of a sudden my device now is bricked ....
    is there any way to fix my phone without the official rom and flash using odin...
    please help
    THANK in Advance.
    I'm using the exact same model on the same carrier , I haven't rooted yet though. You pretty much only have to use Odin if you can't get into anything but the bootloader. If you're still able to access TWRP, try restoring a backup or Flashing a ROM. If TWRP is inaccessible you could try flashing another G930FD ROM in Odin, I'd grab a stock ROM from this site.
    Good luck!
