    Suddenly out of the blue today, my screen took a crop. I've got faded and washed out colors, tons of lines (horizontal, vertical), pink lines, green lines, ghosting and flickering. I just read on another forum that this is suddenly happening to a lot of people. Anyone else having this issue?? What's going on with this thing!? I'm so angry over it.

    I don't know if my screenshots captured it. I'd have to email the pics to myself and view them on another screen somewhere LOL

    FWIW I'm not sure if it's the cause but on my former S6 Edge, fast charging caused these same issues.

    Screw this. I just asked Verizon for a new phone. They're 2-day shipping it to me, and then I send this piece of junk back to them after I get it.

    I think we're going to be a seeing a lot of these reports popping up now. Buyer beware. Definitely a design flaw somewhere. Especially, if it used to happen with the S6, too.

    Not sure if I'm allowed to post this, but here's a link to another forum with a better description of what the symptoms are. I think S7 Edge owners need to be familiar with this..
