You have to have both phones on the Device payment Plan for Verizon.Brother finally wants a smartphone... and I'm still on a Note 3. BOGO free (Verizon) S7 offer comes in the form of a prepaid visa card? That sucks - I don't want to fork out that much up front and then have to find a use for "free money".
This make no sense.Brother finally wants a smartphone... and I'm still on a Note 3. BOGO free (Verizon) S7 offer comes in the form of a prepaid visa card? That sucks - I don't want to fork out that much up front and then have to find a use for "free money".
Do you have a case on yet ??just got my S7E on friday.
so far, 2 things I've noticed.
1. The home button stuck on me 3 times the day I got it. But, it hasn't done it since. Maybe it was just because it was new right out of the box. Not worried about this so much, but it was worth noting.
2. Scrolling issue. When I scroll through.... literally anything... settings, browser, any app, you name it. Where my finger position is when I pick it up off the phone, the phone sometimes treats that as a 'touch'. So it will randomly load hypertext, or open a tweet, or go into a setting when I never actually intended to, if my finger happens to be there when I take it away. Its a little hard to describe. I'm not sure if that's the phone or the OS.
Other than that the phone is awesome. unbelievably fast and the camera is tops
LINKYyes, I have a case. Why do you ask?
one other question:
Settings -> Display and wallpaper -> Screen mode
what do you guys have yours set at? mine is just 'adaptive display'. Are there differences in the other options there?
edit: I use Basic modeBasic Screen Mode uses the industry standard sRGB/Rec.709 colour gamut which is currently used for producing pretty much every piece of consumer content - films, TV, apps, games, you name it. However, again, Samsung has not been lazy here and in terms of colour accuracy DisplayMate's findings reveal a 101% "near perfect" colour accuracy. Basically this is the most colour accurate display available virtually anywhere (and that includes devices that aren't phones, such as TVs and monitors).
The default for the Galaxy S7 is the Adaptive Display Mode, which features a wide colour gamut and, as the name suggests, has built-in real-time adaptive capabilities to adjust the saturation, colour gamut and white balance to try to achieve the best arrangement for any given content displayed on the screen at the time - that's relative to the content on screen but also the ambient light (both colour and brightness) around the phone.
This is basically Samsung's signature display setup which is generally recognised as being heavily saturated - and that's because it is, around 131% of the standard sRGB/Rec.709 colour gamut, in fact. It's not to everyone's tastes, but does have a practical purpose in that this does make viewing content in higher ambient light much clearer and prevents it from washing out.
The AMOLED Photo Mode is pretty much tailored for use with content from premium digital cameras, as most of these can use the Adobe RGB colour gamut, which is 17% of the standard sRGB/Rec.709 colour gamut. This mode, therefore, uses the same Adobe RGB colour gamut. AMOLED Cinema Mode is a similar story but naturally is tailored for watching movies with the best possible colour gamut.
edge? unfortunately there aren't any good protectors for this phone.Fuck. Just discovered a scratch on my screen. WTF!
Used my amazon fire phone for a full year with no case and the screen was fine. This only for 2 weeks and already a scratch on the screen.
this ended up being a major problem and I took it back and returned it for an LG G5.1. The home button stuck on me 3 times the day I got it. But, it hasn't done it since. Maybe it was just because it was new right out of the box. Not worried about this so much, but it was worth noting.
