The Samsung Galaxy S7 is one of the company’s best Galaxy S phones since the series has been around. When it came out in 2016, it was a powerful Android flagship with a beautiful, high-resolution Super AMOLED display. For today’s terms, it would be too small a screen with a diagonal of 5.1 inches, with too much meat below and above.
It was the last Galaxy S with a 16:9 screen and physical buttons below it. The home button integrated a fingerprint reader and was that old school button that you could press.
I personally remember how delighted I was by its 12MP rear camera, which brought the fastest Dual Pixel autofocus ever.
In short, it had everything a flagship phone must have.
The Galaxy S8 series after it arrived as the first with an elongated screen and virtual navigation keys on the screen. The fingerprint reader moved to the back, and the S8 phones once again offered top-notch cameras and numerous other flagship features.
Samsung stopped updating the Galaxy S7 and S8 series a few years ago, but today, like a bolt from the blue, an update for those two phones arrives.
Under the firmware tags G93xFXXU8EVG3 respectively G95xFXXUCDVG4 this update weighs just over 30 megabytes and brings an important upgrade.
Namely, Samsung decided to patch the GPS bug that plagued those devices. Unfortunately, the update doesn’t bring a fresher security patch with it, as the official update era for those models has ended anyway.
Samsung recently sent a similar update to the Galaxy J7 from 2015.
Well, if you still use one of those phones, Samsung remembered you.
