  1. good morning, guess ill just start from the top. i have bin a samsung/android user for some time now. i always talked them up over the other phones. my last contract i had the G5. i loved this phone never gave me any trouble. When i heard the S7 came out i knew it was time to upgrade.

    Since i had this phone for 3 months now it has left me high and dry probly about 4 itmes. the last week it has done it again real bad two more times. The hard/soft reset doesen’t really work all the time. i tried pulling out the sd card and it worked for 1 day. i uninstalled some extra apps that i didnt need. last night i fell asleep watching it reboot over & over while pluged in. it just seemed to start working now & says 42% charged after being pluged in for 8 hours last night.

    What is this all about? is this just this phone? dont know a lot of other people that have the 7 other than all the complaints on the internet. is there any possible chances of fixing this phone or should i dump more money into getting a 5 again? My job and my family depend on a reliable phone. In this bad economical time the canadian oil patch is going through i cant afford to miss calls/work or the job itself. Thanks.
