Samsung SM-G930U reviews

Galaxy S7 SM-G930U 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like the man said... Truly one of the greatest phones ever made but like most anything this great it has an Achilles heel--Samsung just doesn't want to provide the security updates. The other S7 models and most all other competitors get timely, at least monthly, security updates. The SM-G930U is lucky to get them quarterly. My phone is 3 months behind on addressing vulnerabilities at the moment. No Android 7 in sight. Unfortunately the always great people of B&H are powerless on this one. No one tells Sammy what to do. Certainly not the customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time buying unlocked, will never buy locked again! This is my first time buying an unlocked phone. I really chewed on the option of going with the international or this one. I went with this one because I was going to use it with T-Mobile and there was some question as to compatibility with certain bands and samsung pay working on the international version. I am sooo glad I got this one. I havent had a single problem! Its easy set up, it charges very quickly, popped my sim card in and called to hook up my service (was a new customer at a new carrier) and didnt have any problems. Works just fine with T-Mobile. Battery life has been great! I upgraded from a Galaxy S3 to this and the difference is like night and day. Beautiful pictures, amazing video, clear reception in calls (not sure if thats because of the phone or the network lol), there wasnt a ton of unwanted apps when I turned it on, its just so nice. I dont think this phone would disappoint anyone honestly. I will update this review as time goes on if anything changes, but so far its been perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of the best Android devices on the market, but... The S7 is a great device in and of itself - solid construction, great look, lots of features. There's one BIG caveat to this device, however - Samsung has apparently dropped the ball on releasing timely updates to their unlocked line of the GS7. As of right now, it's months behind on security updates which have already been released to carrier-branded models and Samsung support isn't giving customers any details on when they can expect these updates to be pushed to the unlocked version. I, for one, expected that when I bought a carrier-unlocked device, I'd receive timely updates and patches, but that's not the case here. As of right now, if you want a device that will be kept current on firmware and OS updates, you probably want to go with one of the carrier-branded models. This is easily a five-star device, but without adequate manufacturer support, I probably wouldn't recommend it to people. Also note that when you update this device after unboxing, you may be presented with a message that says the software update is a T-Mobile update - EVEN THOUGH this is a carrier-agnostic handset - this T-Mobile branded update is the right update for this unlocked device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Phone Good Camera Great Camera/Videos and fast, but has limitations. Had problem with the SM-G930U 32GB S7 on Verizon Network. VoLTE did not work and the Unlocked G930U did not have Advanced Calling feature on the Settings menu, which you need to enable VoLTE. The G930U had something called Advanced Features, but not the same as Advanced Calling. This phone would not let me use GPS directions and be on a phone call at same time. Also, could not use (Verizon Data) internet and be on a phone call at the same time, unless you were using external Wi-Fi. Did not have video calling which I had before on an older phone. Luckily, I found out about the issues within the 30 day return policy, so I returned the phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is great, but beware compatibility with Verizon I bought three of these phones for my family. I have Verizon and activating them was pretty easy and they work ok on the network. Where I'm having issues is Verizon's Cloud and voicemail will not work correctly. Cloud will not load on the phone and hence won't backup anything. There is no voicemail app that I used to have on my old VZW branded Galaxy S5 so not even basic visual voicemail. To make matters worse, I don't get ANY notification of when I have a voicemail. I turn my phone off frequently so it's a pain to always have to check my voicemail everytime. VZ is working the issue. It's been escalated past tech support to their network engineering team. Will update as information changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SM-930U Great Value For The Money While the Galaxy S7 is approaching two years old and while the price has dropped to about half of its introductory price it is still a very good value for the money. I you are looking for cutting edge features found in the S9 products line you will not find them in this phone. It is a phone that has two years worth of updates and customer use under its belt. Also being a GSM and CDMA phone it can be used piratically anywhere in the world. Just pop in a locally purchased SIM card and you are good to go. The Galaxy S7 is still a very powerful smart phone and so far I have really enjoyed using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for me! Purchased this phone as soon as it came out because I wanted an S7 that had no bloatware. I popped in a AT&T sim card has worked perfectly getting 4G LTE, text messaging works fine.. my first Android after years of ios and apple, tired of them...
Date published: 2016-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on Sprint Neither B&H nor Sprint would give me a straight up confident answer on whether this would work on the Sprint network, outside of the frequencies of the phone and network being compatible. I took a slight risk and glad I did. Walked into a Sprint corporate store with it (already had Sprint service) and they gave me a new nano SIM and had it up and working in about 10 minutes. First experience buying an unlocked phone and it went super smooth.
