Get Android Nougat Notification Shade on Galaxy S6, S7 and Edge variants

With root, it’s possible to get some of Android Nougat looks on your Galaxy S6 and S7, including the Edge variants of them both. But know that this requires root access. If you don’t have root, then you better look to root your device first.

If you don’t like TouchWiz, Samsung’s custom UI, a lot, then we don’t blame you — in fact, we share the feeling with ya. The cool thing with Android and its myriad of hacks is that customization is endless. A trick shared below will allow you to replace the look of notification shade to make it more like Android Nougat!

You can also enable and disable the soft keys, or on-screen keys if you prefer. While, if you wish to disable the capacitive keys — which is a good thing to do when you got soft keys up and running — then that’s possible too.

With the use of root access, Xposed framework (and its modules GravityBox and Andorid N-ify) and Good Lock app, you can do all of the above.
