For those of you who want to experience the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow AND S7 Edge features on your rooted Galaxy Note 5 or S6 Edge+, you can do that easily with Simple S7 Edge ROM.
Unlike the Ultron ROM featured the other week, this ROM is “ported” straight off a real Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935F international version. You can install this on any Galaxy Note 5 or S7 Edge+ with root and marshmallow bootloader. Also, battery life is excellent which was one of the culprits with Ultron ROM for daily driving. You will also notice much improved idling due to DOZE working fully with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Of course, ALL S7 Edge features are included in this ROM including edge screen panels, S7 Edge apps, and everything except for the camera since that’s limited by the hardware. And yes, while most S7 Edge models (U.S. models) are not rootable yet, this ROM gives you root! And for Note 5 users, you will still have full abilities to use your Note 5 S-Pen, S-Pen apps, and all of its functionalities. That’s not all, there is also extra features like floating messages, Smart Manager, and a few more that makes this ROM better than a real Galaxy S7 Edge.
Antutu Scores: 81,000!
Overall, this is the best ROM I have tried so far with flawless performance/battery life along with excellent S7 Edge features so definitely give it a go if you have a Galaxy Note 5 or S6 Edge+!
