nougat rom for galaxy s6 edge

Looking for a fantastic piece of firmware that could just free you of all that Samsung bloat, bring you improved battery life and performance too? You are in for a treat! Based on official Android 7.0 Nougat, SamStock Android Nougat ROM for Galaxy S6 edge seems to be one of the best new custom ROMs that we have seen in a long time. This custom ROM promises the absolute best and clean stock experience. Bloat? Gone. Performance issues? Gone. Battery life? Massively improved.

"It's so stock that it's stock," SamStock's developer writes excitedly (edited for clarity). "Some ROM makers like to customize their ROMs by branding it with their name, and I have nothing against that. This ROM, however, has none of that."

Several users have commented on its charms. "Flashed the ROM according to the instructions on my GT-920F," XDA user amgat writes (edited for clarity). "Everything is working fine. I came from a lineage ROM and had lots of different issues i.e. battery and stk not working."

"I now have excellent battery time and a working stk and a debloated phone. I also love how the aroma(?) installer let me choose whether or not to install annoying apps like Twitter and Facebook."

Another user wrote that they tried the ROM on their W8. "Glad to have a stock ROM with most of the bloatware removed and none of those added features," they wrote. "Thank you for the hard work."
