Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

I have owned a few S7E (unlocked Canadian models and Rogers locked ones). Poor update speed as you have mentioned...I just received my US unlocked S7E (SM-G935U) from B&H Photo, hopefully the American model has speedier updates...

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

Hello @RNEric

Yeah the update speeds are taking longer then usual to be honest and it's hurting them. I do believe that the update might come when the Note 7 gets released ( which it's being announced in August 7th confirmed by Samsung). So we shall see.

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

The G935F gets the fastest updates and is an Exynos model. The g935U is a Snapdragon variant with a locked bootloader, but as far as updates go people have been getting updates on it depending on which sim card their using or that's what I at least understood on xda.

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

For the G935W you won't even see any updates if you set it to XAC...so perhaps it's Canada in general we are getting updates in a much slower pace...

Too bad the G935F doesn't have all the LTE bands for Rogers.

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

I think it actually does. I just checked with one of the websites and it states that the G935F supports LTE on rogers.

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

This, for example,
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1225381-REG/samsung_sm_g935_32gb_slv_galaxy_s7_edge_g935.html

It's missing Band 12 and 13, though it has Band 4 and 7...so the F version misses two LTE bands.
