The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a stock ROM that is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, but there are still some custom ROMs out there that can give it a run for its money. We are only beginning to scratch the surface of the custom ROMs that will become available for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge at the time of writing this post, and we’ll be sure to continue to update the post any time we get new ROMs that are worth mentioning. Some of the custom ROMs we know are eventually coming for the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone include the CyanogenMod builds, Resurrection Remix and probably some AOSP builds.
While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone is one of the best smartphones in the world — especially if you are walking about anything that is as adventurous as possessing some curves on the display — it still has that same old Samsung TouchWiz and abundance of system applications you could probably do without. Don’t get me wrong, nor you or I should hate Samsung for this. I can appreciate the intent of creating some additional revenue from their services, apps and so forth, but I also think that we should be free to remove those services from the devices we have already paid for should we choose. That all bring me to my next point: even though the stock ROM based on Android Marshmallow is fantastic, you can install a custom ROM for other reasons than just changing your ROM. Removing those system apps I just mentioned being at the forefront of the list.
Note: Make sure you check what model number the custom ROM is made for from the download links. Whenever we create a post such as this one, it means the model numbers are all thrown into the same article. Don’t assume that all custom ROMs will work for all model numbers. Each download link will mention what model number the ROM is for somewhere on the page, either in the custom ROM thread title or the original post closer to the download link. If you still don’t see it there then have a read of some comments or leave a comment yourself if you aren’t sure, and the custom ROM poster or other people subscribed to the thread will help you out.
