Samsung rolls out update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, improves ‘Always On’ feature
When the Marshmallow platform first launched and a lot of Android users started to get it, one of the most loved features in the Android 6 was the “Always ON” feature that Google put in there to help you get some important notifications and keep up with some activities while the screen display itself has be killed.
Well, the users of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge now have a new update rolling out to them that would even make this feature of the Marshmallow better for them than it had previously been.
From the changelog, the update which weighs little this time around would be introducing a new calendar that replaced the last two that were in use and for the change to the Always ON feature, you would now be able to keep track of hat music file your device is playing though this display.
Weighing in at 8MP, you might be worried about the amount of battery power that would be consumed by this kind of display system but according to Samsung, the Always on would just chew out about 1% of the total battery juice available. Good one there, we think.
