Verizon updates the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

The two Samsung flagships on Verizon Wireless received a minor fix, described as a connectivity maintenance update.

Although we never heard of Samsung Galaxy S7 devices facing network connectivity issues so far, it seems such problems exist and their frequency was high enough to require a software update to solve them. Strange enough, this time the update does not seem to come from Google or Samsung, but directly from Verizon Wireless.

According to the official update page, "This software update has been tested to optimize device performance, resolve known issues and apply the latest security patches." The new software version is MMB29M.G930VVRU2APB5, and it only comes with various fixes and no new features. These are the main issues it fixes: trouble connecting, frequent data disconnections, and even problems while loading Web pages or various files.

Although the size of this update is not mentioned anywhere, Verizon estimates the download time to 6-10 minutes, so installing it should face no problems concerning the amount of data traffic used. As usual, those who did not receive the update notification yet can go to Settings>About Device>Software Update>Update Now and check manually.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
