Some Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users are going through a rough time with their year-old flagships as far as Wi-Fi connectivity is concerned.
According to reports, the two phones simply disconnect from Wi-Fi whenever the phones’ displays go to sleep. In order to keep it connected to Wi-Fi, it means that the display has to remain on throughout, which we all know what it will cause to the battery life of the phone.
Some started seeing this problem a few days ago, which prompted them to think that it could be as a result of a recent software update. However, it appears that others have been facing the same issue for quite some time now, which rules out the recent update as the cause.
Many have tried all kinds of fixes, including the worst of all – a factory reset – but nothing really seems to work. It’s strange that a factory reset isn’t solving the problem, especially since it’s the one fix that should actually help take care of such an issue.
In order to stay online, you’d be forced to connect to the internet via your cellular data pack, something that many are keen to avoid in order to save some cash. Samsung has not yet responded to this issue, probably because not so many are experiencing it. But since DIY fixes aren’t helping a thing, it’s about time the company jumped in with a software update to solve the issue.
