Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Android 10 available as Pixel Experience custom ROM (Download link inside)

Samsung has been bumping up the prices for their flagship smartphones over the years. The price hike might seem justifiable by simply looking at the hardware. However, a closer look at Samsung’s software support makes the high price seem ridiculous.

For years the company has only been providing two major Android updates for its devices. Moreover, certain phones from Samsung are priced higher than Apple’s offerings. A company that provides around 5 years of software support for its devices.

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge released back in 2016 and both devices came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Unfortunately, Android 8.0 Oreo was the last major Android version that was released for the devices. Therefore, the devices are now running on almost 3-year-old software.

Fortunately, in the Android world, you need not have to look out for official software updates only. Thanks to the developer community, most Android smartphones released in the past few years can now run the latest software too.

Moreover, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users can rejoice because Android 10 is now available for them in the form of the Pixel Experience ROM. As the name suggests, the Pixel Experience ROM aims to bring a Pixel-like stock Android experience to other smartphones.
