For those of you who want to check out the latest Android 7.0 Nougat for your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, check out the OnTheEdgeLite ROM, which is a custom ROM version of the beta Android 7.0 Nougat firmware that Samsung has been testing out. Although you can get this by signing up for Samsung’s beta program, you will have more control and root if you use the custom ROM (since you can easily go back to Marshmallow if you’d like).
The OnTheEdgeLite ROM runs very solid, great battery life, and gives you all the new features of Android Nougat such as grouped notifications, better battery life, improvements in performances, and of course Nougat easter eggs (enable by tapping on the Android N logo and holding down on it until you see a cat appear, then you can catch cats by feeding them snacks and food). Also, you will get the latest camera just like the Galaxy Note 7 that works flawless without any bugs and you will be able to use all the modes. The UI has changed a bit and you will see subtle improvements here and there such as having the ability to change resolution of the screen to 1080P or 720P to save battery life.
Although this is not the FINAL verision of Android 7.0 Nougat, all of apps I’ve tested run solid and everything works so you should be able to use it as daily driver. If you have the international SM-G935F or SM-G935FD, definitely check it out this week(end) and do let us know what you think!
