Verizon Wireless shipped the first Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge units a few days ago. These were the pre-ordered handsets and, although their new owners were really happy to get them a few days before becoming available in stores, some also spotted a problem. Samsung Pay, although supported by previous generation Samsung flagships, was not present on the Galaxy S7.
Fortunately, it turns out that Verizon was still testing the app and it should be available soon. Now, the app is ready for the Galaxy S7 and arrives just in time for the official launch date of the two Galaxy S7 flagships. Those interested should just go to the Play Store, grab the Samsung Pay app, and then use their Verizon Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge to make payments on the go.
Obviously, Samsung Pay is not bloatware and can be installed or removed as needed. As it usually happens with such payment services, there will always be people thinking it is not safe to use, so it is good to know they can simply forget the fact they own a handset with support for Samsung Pay.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
