First you'll need to find your device's Model Number. You can find this in Settings > About Device, under the field Model Number. It may look something like: SM-G930F. If your device is in a state where you cannot navigate to Settings > About Device, please refer to the bottom of my post for alternative methods to lookup your model number. Once you've ...

IMO, your firmware is original, because it Received OTA - most clinching reason ( see edit for details) Knox isn't tripped Firmware number matches For Samsung phones, there is a handy app that provides a lot of information about the phone, including Refurbishment Check. It also shows if the device is original. It is Phone INFO Samsung. App developer ...

The first answer is 'No' as one can use only one type of screen passcode and you are using 'Pattern Lock' so it replaces your 'PIN lock' which you enabled last time. As I'm not sure of security settings of your device, i am assuming it that it may have previous facility from back days devices that uses first 'PIN'/'PASSWORD' and then additional is 'LOCK ...

Thanks to Samsung non standard implementation, OP couldn't factory-reset and encrypt before selling. They couldn't : Check if the device was encrypted Locate the option for encryption Steps advised : Install minimal adb on your laptop (Is there a minimal installation of ADB?) and check device encryption status (Is there a way for a user to tell if their ...

I'd say that is absolutely normal. Because: What benefit would you have if your RAM is empty? You have RAM to be used for caching and hibernating apps. Unused RAM is useless. :-) Do you experience performance issues? Any lag? No? Then the S7's memory management works as it should. :-)

SMS backup and restore has Option to select which text conversations to backup or restore Though it is manual and not by date . This should be fine in your case as you don't have too many On the next screen you can select the messages manually and create a backup Thanks to a acejavelin who pointed out that restoration can be done for a specific date ...

There are a few indicators of modified/unmodified devices, depending on what was modified and how. Depending on the manufacturer and model, some of these indicators are not available. These should apply to any recent Samsung phone: : Go to Settings -> About phone -> Status -> Device status. As long as the ROM/firmware hasn't been tampered with, it ...

It seems like an Oreo issue as documented here: https://www.androidpolice.com/2017/09/26/feature-bug-oreo-dnd-turns-off-get-barraged-sounds-vibrations-pending-received-notifications/ It was resolved in 8.1.0, but Samsung hasn't provided this update to its 8.0 phones. So today it is mostly Samsung users that are affected. https://us.community.samsung.com/...

The metric 360 x 640 is in dp (device-independent pixels) and it is the dimension of the viewport at a 1x base size. This is not the same as the resolution, or physical pixel size. This is because the S7 has an XXXHDPI density factor of 4x, which means every graphic must be scaled x4 when exporting assets for this device. The resolution in actual pixels is ...

After some more research, I found my answer: 360 x 640, which are the same dimensions as the Galaxy S6, which are the same dimensions as the few preceding Galaxy S models. But I still don't know what these dimensions are called. I found three different websites, each giving them a different term: design.google.com: "width x height in dp" mydevice.io/...

The U.S. variant of the mobile phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, while Samsung's own Exynos 8 processor powers the international iteration of the phone. http://www.techtimes.com/articles/144278/20160326/galaxy-s7-snapdragon-vs-exynos-speed-test-which-model-is-faster.htm

Quad HD recording is superior to full HD as you can see from table Source But if Google photos is reducing it Full HD, then the quality will be superior to that of a video recorded in Full HD and uploaded based on Google Product forums Videos higher than 1080p will be resized to high-definition 1080p. A video with 1080p or less will look close to the ...

Try updating your "Android System WebView" application. It may be happening because of the confusion to an app of choosing which web view app or you can say service to use... I have CyanogenMod 14.1 which is based on Nougat. There's this option in Settings -> Developer Options -> WebView implementation

Surprised this hasn't been answered - but yes, Cardboard is just to hold your phone and have basic lenses to view the split screen. Daydream VR is a superset of that functionality, so Cardboard apps should work fine with it.

I personally don't have this issue, but this is how I solved a friend's phone with this problem: On your phone, go to Google Play and install the app Muzei Once installed, tap the open button in the Google Play app. You will be greeted with a splash page with a button that says "activate". Tap the button, and then click set wallpaper at the bottom of the ...

Yes it will require verification, and you will need to be able to receive a text to verify your number with WhatsApp. If your device/carrier has the ability to send/receive texts over wifi, that may be an option for you to verify your number. Per WhatsApp's FAQ Page here: Requirements You can only verify a phone number you own. You must be ...

Let me tell you a bit about the Android system. When an app is updated, the developer may not merely add files to its directories, but may also delete/modify existing ones. Android system is such that, Google Play Services framework cannot update apps while they are on SD card. So, the apps are always updated by first moving them to device memory, and then ...

All you have to do, is clear defaults for the sound picker app. To do so, go to settings → application manager (apps) → in the three dots menu, select "show system apps" → sound picker → defaults → clear defaults. After clearing defaults, you will now be able to choose between the other options. Oh and usually even within the ...

The answer to your question is no. Without a Samsung Engineering firmware load that has adb and USB debugging enabled in the setup wizard this is not possible, and I have never seen one leaked out for any Snapdragon based S7, so the answer is simply no. Remember, FRP is DESIGNED not to be able to be bypassed or defeated, every time a exploit comes out, it ...

Ended-up flashing the old firmware (links on xda) and redoing the OTA upgrade. Worked fine this time, which makes me think the first OTA file was munged. Doesn't AT&The have any error-checking built-in to their upgrade script?!

There's a better way to disable any package by using the adb pm uninstall command. Note that this will not actually uninstall the app, but will only hide it from the system. Best of all it works on non-rooted devices too!! Enter this from your adb folder: adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.wssyncmldm If you really want to get rid of a lot of Security+...

If the notification is really annoying you, you could get rid of it by performing the suggested method of disabling the process responsible for handling system updates and associated activities named com.wssyncmldm. Head to Google Play store and grab Package Disabler Pro (Samsung)($1.49 not sure if there is free version, but reviews claim this is worth ...

That is Samsung's "take" on the Settings layout for their skinned version of Android 7.0. As far as I know, there is no way to get the old layout back.

I am experiencing the same issue on my Samsung Galaxy S7 (Exynos). The stuttering in slow-motion video is awful and there is nothing I can do about it. I have also tried without SD-card, no difference. The best way is to minimize the number of installed apps. It will not remove stuttering completely, but might reduce it a little bit. It is somehow the ...

Thanks for the reply. I tried those instructions before but there is no Personal option. I did find it though. For anyone interested, it's Settings > Cloud and Accounts > Accounts > Google > Tap Account > [Menu] > Remove Account. For some reason it wouldn't open up the option to remove the account without having to "cancel sync" first in my case.

Samsung Galaxy S7 has vibration patterns, which can be attached to, and most importantly changed, for many triggered system events. It is impossible to define exactly what your double vibration is attached to, since it is modifiable, and may be already changed from its default. However, you may find out what your notification vibration is by going to ...

Modified from one of my previous answers: Use apps like Ultimate Rotation Control - with proper settings, it seamlessly integrates with system rotation toggle, and on top of that you can enable/disable any rotation direction, force apps that don't usually rotate to rotate, and set per-app rotation behavior.

You can shoot in raw. They just changed where it is placed on the Nougat upgrade. It is the last option under picture size and can only be accessed when using the pro mode.
