Samsung Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge Switch To Full HD Resolution After Android Nougat Update
Samsung has tinkered with the screen resolution in the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, after the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The screen resolution now automatically switches to a FHD mode, differing from Android Nougat’s default WQHD resolution.

Samsung has finally unveiled the Android 7.0 Nougat update for its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones.
This update had been eagerly awaited by Samsung users and they may today like the new has the newest model of Android brings.
Nevertheless, a probably irritating bug will come with the update and that tends to make the screen resolution get scaled automatically to FHD (1920 x 1080), making it the default resolution on the Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy S7 smartphones.
Why Is This Happening?
This has most likely been through keeping in mind Samsung’s newly incorporated power saving mechanism. The doomed Note seven was the first handset to carry the scheme. This energy saver mode allows users to alter the display screen resolution to as low as 720p in a bid to conserve battery usage.
What Is The Default Resolution?
The latest update carries the choice of picking between any of the next screen resolution modes – specifically the WQHD mode (2560 x 1440), the FHD mode (1920 x 1080) and the HD function (1280 x 720). The WQHD mode consumes the many power while the HD function usually requires minimal battery consumption.
The Android Nougat update houses the native WQHD 2K resolution and it’s puzzling why the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones automatically downgraded to 1080p rather than staying at the native resolution. Only many users have claimed the bug whereas others might not actually have recognized it just yet.
How Can It Be Changed?
The difference in resolution isn’t a lot, as the phones look great even on FHD mode. The texts and images are actually crystal clear on the FHD mode and it is not much to be bothered about. Samsung has defaulted the screen resolution to FHD mode but you are able to easily change it to suit the needs of yours.
When your handset is effected by this particular bug, there’s a simple way to correct it.
Step one: Go to the Settings tab
Step two: Tap on the Display header
Step three: Tap on Change screen resolution
Step four: Slide all of the way to the right to 2560 x 1440
Samsung’s official update rolled out on Jan. seventeen, 2017 and has been made available to users around the globe. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users have so far received the version 7.0 update and there are actually no reports of version 7.1.1 being released on the phones in the near future.
What remains to be seen is actually that exactly how the new update will be greeted by the users worldwide.
