Samsung Galaxy S7: How To Return To Marshmallow [GUIDE]
We can’t argue the fact that we are all essentially different people with different preferences. There are some things we like but others loathe – and vice versa. The same situation can be seen in Samsung Galaxy S7’s latest Nougat update.
The Android 7.0 Nougat brought along a couple of nifty features to the Galaxy S7 device but some just can’t seem to open their hearts to it. If you are one of them, here’s how you could revert to Android Marshmallow.
