    Anyone else getting a thin red line that keeps appearing on the screen? After reboot it goes away, but comes back after a couple of hours. My S7 Edge is a Sprint variant of the phone. Seems to be happening after I got the latest update from a week ago. Just wondering if anyone else is getting this. Thanks!

    Is it always in the same precise location?
    If so, possibly could be a hardware issue and to paraphrase biOforger's highly technical phrase, it is FUBAR.
    If not, then either OS or app driven and fixable.

    Yes it always happens in the same place. Hopefully this will be fixed on the next update.

    If it happens in the same place, and in different situations/applications, it easily could be a hardware issue. Your fingers crossed for the next update, but unfortunately, don't hold your breath. Here's hoping I'm completely wrong.

    Dammit man! Make up your fecking mind and stop confusing us. Is it fubar or is it fecked? And don't get too technical on us.

    Both require the phone to be replaced or repaired by Samsung. That's not too technical is it?

    So here is an update on my issue........Went to the Sprint store yesterday and they ended up replacing my phone with a brand new one. It was definitely a defective phone. I was worried I was going to get the run around on this one, but Sprint stepped up and took care of it quickly. Have to say I have been very happy with their customer service. They have not let me down yet and I have been with them for seven years.

    Hope no one else runs into this issue. Thanks for all of the feedback!
