How to change Galaxy S7 screen resolution on Nougat

The Nougat menu on Galaxy S7 and S7 edge allows you to set the screen resolution to FHD, WQHD, or HD - the lowest of all. While it can arguably help you get more battery life from your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, you could have your own reasons to have always wanted to have that ability too.

Another point to note is that Nougat update defaults to Full HD after installation. While you may not notice the change, Samsung's new display scaling options change the default resolution to FHD, but you can switch back to whatever resolution you want by following these steps.

  1. Go to the Settings menu on the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge.
  2. Scroll down to Display > tap on Change screen resolution.
  3. In here, you can select: HD (1280 × 720), FHD (1920 × 1080), or WQHD (2560 × 1440)
  4. Finally, tap on Apply to save the changes.

Now even when you restart your device, it will retain the screen resolution that you have chosen.
