Samsung rolls out touch-improving Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge software updates

Even two phones as new and awesome as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge need constant software support, not only to ensure their security is always in tip-top shape, but also to take care of inherent small bugs and continuously improve imperfect features.

For instance, it’s been reported one-handed use didn’t work so great on the S7 Edge off the bat, which Samsung immediately got on top of, cooking up a maintenance update dedicated primarily to revising palm rejection.

This minor yet noticeable goodie pack is now rolling out in select European markets, containing shape correction for skewed photos as well, plus improved general stability. In a way, you’re looking at an international equivalent of sorts to a recent T-Mobile upgrade, although the changelogs are hardly identical.

Both on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, you need roughly 160MB free storage space to accommodate the new software, which obviously doesn’t bump up your OS version. You’ll still be on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, just a smoother TouchWiz-skinned take with less accidental edge display touches, and a photography add-on that lets you automatically adjust crooked elements and shapes after capturing your snapshot.

Remember to perform a manual check if automatic download and installation isn’t available, and give Samsung enough time to spread the stability-optimizing love before losing your cool. It could take weeks or mere days.
