Samsung starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices and today we come to know that this new update reduces the default resolution to 1920 x 1080 pixels, although this is not a problem, as in the settings menu they added a new option that will allow us to choose between several resolutions, either put the original resolution WQHD of 2560 x 1440 pixels or lower it further to 1280 x 720 pixels.
Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Update Brings PC Like Resolution Settings
Actually this new added option is quite good, low resolution will help to increase the battery life of the device, while in gaming you will also see how their performance increase exponentially, perfect for future most demanding games where with lower resolution you can easily enjoy smooth gaming. This new screen option adds a slightly updated interface. So you know, if you have a Galaxy S7, and never use VR glasses, always leave the phone at 1920 x 1080p and notice virtually no difference in terms of viewing.
The Android 7.0 update happens in two phases, the phone first downloads a 500 MB file that is sort of a preparation for Nougat and after you install that, you get a full 1.2GB file that includes the Nougat 7.0 update. We have to admit that the fonts and general user interface look refreshed with the Android 7.0 update.
