If you own a top tier smartphone from Verizon that was released within the past two years, there is a good chance you will see an update this week. We’re seeing new software for at least 11 devices, though that number could increase before the end of tomorrow. Most appear to be security patches, rather than big upgrades to Nougat. (more…)
A week ago, the US unlocked Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935U) began receiving the update to Android Nougat through Samsung’s Smart Switch app. The regular Galaxy S7 was left out for reasons we’ll probably never know, but you no longer have to worry about that since the update arrived for the lonely device this morning.

The Galaxy S8 might be the talk of the town at the moment, but updates are still flowing to devices like the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Verizon’s S7 line-up is receiving new software today that introduces support for Big Red’s One Talk service and the latest version of the Amazon Shopping app.
The updates should be small and will arrive as software versions G930VVRU4BQC5 and G935VVRU4BQC5. (more…)
A major update is rolling out to S Health, the same that was detailed on stage during the Galaxy S8 unveiling. Moving forward, S Health is now Samsung Health, which is sorta comical considering “S” was simply short for Samsung. I would’ve loved to be a fly on the wall during that super important meeting.

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners are probably wondering if they should consider upgrading to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. That’s going to be a tough decision to make, since those phones should still be holding up well after only a year. To hopefully help you with that decision, we’ve put together a specs comparison chart of the four phones to show you on paper how they all differ. (more…)
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Moto Z, or Moto Z Force on Verizon are all receiving updates to kick off the week. As far as we know, the updates are minor.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are seeing software version G930VVRU4BQA4 and G935VVRU4BQA4, respectively. The update is telling users that it includes “WiFi performance improvements.” (more…)
The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are the absolute worst phones you could buy if you care about timely updates, current security patches, and fun new versions of Android that include new features and all that jazz. I say that because the US unlocked Galaxy S7 I have (and the S7 Edge I don’t own) is
almost always behind in updates, still doesn’t have Android Nougat, and only today, received March’s security patch. Samsung hates these phones and has since day 1. (more…)
The update should start rolling out today, according to Verizon support pages. Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will see software version G930VVRU4BQA2, while the Galaxy S7 Edge will get G935VVRU4BQA2. Verizon hasn’t said how big the update is, but it’ll likely be large. Make sure you have plenty of battery and data remaining on your account before you download this guy over 4G.
So, what should you expect from the update? A lot! (more…)
