Palm detection isn’t working

Palm detection is supposed to stop the screen registering false taps, but in some cases it doesn’t appear to be working: the slightest bump or just holding the Edge in a certain way can register a tap. This appears to be a software glitch, and so far the best solution appears to be to put your Edge in a protective case. You could try a screen protector too, but many Edge users have found that the curved screen makes it hard for protectors to stick.

MicroSD card issues

To the delight of many fans, Samsung brought back expandable storage with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. However, users have come across a few issues related to it. For starters, there is no adoptable expandable storage. Secondly, a couple of persistent popups related to the microSD card appear randomly, multiple times during the day. Finally, the microSD card also seems to make the device take a touch longer to wake.

As far as the adoptable storage issue is concerned, there is a useful guide on how to activate this setting, which you can find here. While the phones don’t have to be rooted for this solution, make sure that you follow the steps exactly as stated, and some form of technical know-how is recommended.

When it comes to the slow to wake issue, certain brands of microSD cards seem to cause the problem more than others, including Samsung cards as well. Samsung has released a software update this month that fixes this problem, so make sure that your device is updated to the latest software version.

Bluetooth Problems

Aside from the above mentioned Bluetooth causing WiFi problems, countless complaints are mentioning overall issues with Bluetooth as a whole. Connection problems with car audio or stereo systems, Android Auto not connecting right, and even some 3rd party accessories.

This happens on occasion with most devices, and is quickly fixed by software updates or simply repairing a bluetooth device to your Galaxy S7. For one, unpair and repair any device trying to use Bluetooth, as that could fix it. And if any “permissions” appear during this process make sure its set to allow. Owners can also head into permission controls in settings and make sure they didn’t deny access to certain apps.

However, another option that typically has shown to fix Bluetooth problems is by doing a little trick. Owners can pull down the notification bar and hit the gear-shaped settings button up top. Then in settings head to Applications > Application Manager > More and find an app called Bluetooth Share as shown above. Hitting “Force Stop” or clearing the cache then turning Bluetooth off and back on again typically solves any remaining problems.

Slow wireless charging

Samsung packed quick wireless charging into the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. If you own any of these two phones are realize that the quick wireless charging functionality is nowhere near quick, first ensure that you this setting is turned on via the Battery Setting. If this doesn’t work, try charging the phone when it’s without the case, just in case it has one. Another thing to check is the compatibility of the charging pad with quick wireless charging.

It’s оn fire

Nоt literally, but if уоur Samsung iѕ running hot thеn thеrе аrе a fеw things tо check. If thе problem occurs whеn уоur Edge iѕ charging, trу leaving it аlоnе inѕtеаd оf uѕing it аnd disable Fast Cable Charging in Settings > Battery. Thаt will increase charging times, but if it stops уоur Edge gеtting tоо hot that’s a sacrifice worth making.

It’s worth checking fоr rogue apps too. In Settings > Battery > Battery Usage > Mоrе > Optimize Battery Usage уоu саn select All Apps tо ensure thаt apps can’t drain thе battery bу running in thе background.

If thе heat iѕ аt thе cable еnd rаthеr thаn thе Edge itself, уоu mау hаvе a faulty cable: we’ve found еvеn rеаllу good quality charging саn gеt alarmingly hot оnсе they’ve bееn uѕеd аnd abused fоr a while. Resist thе temptation tо uѕе vеrу cheap no-name chargers аnd cables frоm eBay, too, аѕ they’re оftеn thе саuѕе оf catastrophic overheating аnd in ѕоmе cases, асtuаl fires.

If аll еlѕе fails, a full Factory Reset iѕ thе lаѕt resort bеfоrе calling in thе warranty.
