If, however, the handset is heating up without your intervention, it could all be down to the fast-charge setting. While the Exynos cell phone models of the Samsung S7 and Samsung S7 Edge use Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging technology, the Snapdragon 820 models use Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 tech. Repair. Either way, turning these settings off can reduce the uncomfortable warmth that can build up during charging. Repair.

To disable quick charging, go to Settings > Battery and turn Fast Cable Charging off. It’s enabled by default so chances are, if you haven’t turned it off already, this could be the source of your overheating woes. Repair.

Repair. If you’re experiencing overheating even when not using or charging your Samsung cell phone, it could be down to a particular app. Luckily, the Battery optimizer setting allows you to stop apps from sapping energy when the phone isn’t in use.

SET SD CARDS AS INTERNAL ‘ADOPTABLE’ STORAGE. Samsung cell phone repair service Downtown

Repair. One of Android Marshmallow’s coolest new features is the ability to ‘merge’ the Micro SD card with the internal storage. Repair. This allows the Samsung cell phone to treat the resulting memory as one partition, making it easier to see how much storage you have available.

Repair. Unfortunately, Samsung decided it wouldn’t be supporting this feature with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung S7 Edge cell phones, even though both handsets mark the return of the much-missed SD card slot. Repair. But that doesn’t mean you can’t overrule Samsung’s decision to snub adaptable memory.

Before you embark on the following fix, make sure to backup anything on your SD card as it will be formatted as part of the process. Repair.

Repair. First, go to Settings > System > About and tap five times on the phone’s build number. This will enable developer mode. Repair. You can then navigate to Settings > System > Developer options and enable USB debugging.

Samsung cell phone WET SPEAKERS. Samsung cell phone repair service Downtown

Repair. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung S7 Edge cell phones are waterproof with an IP68 rating which means they can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. Repair. Waterproofing is a welcome return to the Samsung Galaxy series after the S6 removed the feature introduced by the S5.

Repair. There doesn’t seem to be any major issues with regard to the Samsung S7’s cell phone waterproofing claim, however, some people are noticing that the speakers sound distorted after the phone gets wet. Repair.

Repair. The Samsung S7 cell phone has a rubber seal around the charging port and headphone jack to keep water out. Repair. To prevent water ingress through the speaker holes, Samsung has added a screen behind the holes that stop water getting in but still allows sound waves to get out.

This design means you don’t need any fiddly flaps protecting the holes and ports on your Samsung cell phone, but it does mean droplets of water can pool in them, particularly the speaker holes, causing the sound to distort. Repair.

All you need to do is wait an hour or two for the Samsung cell phone to dry. Repair. You can dab it with a towel or tissue to get rid of some of the moisture but try to avoid blow-drying your Samsung cell phone as the intense heat could damage the components.

Samsung cell phone DISTRACTING ALWAYS-ON DISPLAY. Samsung cell phone repair service Downtown

The Always-On Display (AOD) is a great new feature allowing you to see the time and date, calendar and even an image on your Samsung cell phone S7’s display while the screen is off. It’s a handy way to check the time and see if you have any notifications without waking up your Samsung cell phone. Samsung cell phone repair service Downtown Miami Brickell.

This definitely falls into the category of first world problems, but every minute or so the image or information that’s being displayed jumps to another area of the screen. Repair. If you have your phone next to you or sitting on your desk, it can become a little distracting.

Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to stop the AOD from moving. In fact, it’s designed that way to prevent screen burn-in on the AMOLED display. Repair.

If the AOD does start to bother you or you’d just like to save some battery, open the Settings app and go to Display> AlwaysOnDisplay. Simply tap the toggle at the top of the menu to turn it off. Repair.

There are reports that some Samsung cell phone S7 and Samsung S7 Edge cell phones are experiencing Bluetooth issues that prevent the phone from connecting to certain car audio systems and headphones.

Open Settings > Applications > Application manager, tap More and then select Show system apps. Repair. Now if you scroll down you should see an application called Bluetooth Share. Tap it to open.

Forcing Bluetooth Sharing to stop as well as clearing the cache and data seems to be resolving the problem for a number of users. Repair.

Samsung cell phone LAGGY TOUCHWIZ. Samsung cell phone repair service Downtown

The cell phone Exynos 8890 (or Snapdragon 820) processor, 4GB of RAM and the latest Android 6 software make the Samsung S7 a veritable beast of a cell phone. It feels much faster and more responsive than the S6 cell phone, but if you still find it lags in places or feels a bit slow, it’s probably a symptom of the infamous TouchWiz skin. Repair.

As with any Samsung cell phone, if you’re unhappy with TouchWiz you can cover it up with a launcher, turn off specific features like S-Voice or as a last resort, root your phone. Repair.

Installing a third-party launcher, such as the Google Now or Nova launcher, is the easiest way to speed up your phone. Repair. It changes the theme, icon style, wallpaper, and animations as well as, in most cases, making your phone feel faster and more responsive.
