Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge get official Lineage OS 14.1 build

After a long wait of almost half a year, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have made it to LineageOS 14.1. The older Galaxy flagships already got their fair share of LineageOS right when Lineage began the transition process of CyanogenMod ROMs.

LineageOS brings pretty much the same stuff to the table as CyanogenMod did. If you’re not familiar with either of these custom ROMs, we’ll give you a brief overview. With a custom ROM you can tweak and customize your device to your heart’s content.

On top of that, the performance gains are also commendable when compared to what Samsung’s TouchWiz offers with the stock ROM. If you know what to do and you’re familiar with custom ROMs, you can get a lot more use out of your Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Talking about the Edge display, you can even set it up to do your own bidding, be it for apps, functions, etc.

Right now, the builds for both devices are Nightly based, meaning that they will be updated on a regular basis. But at the same time, these ROMs may come with a couple of bugs which shouldn’t be that big of a deal as they will eventually get ironed out.
