    Hi guys, I just got my S7 Edge last week, after 1 week usage, I release that the NFC icon is missing eventhough NFC is switched on, and Palm Swipe Capture is not functioning, but Power Button + Home button is working fine.

    Any idea how to fix these 2 problems? :(

    I am curious, when you expand your quick settings, how many icons are visible?

    Tap on edit on the screen you sent and you will see the balance of the icons. You can then press hold and move them around so that your favorites are in the top section.


    From what I can see from your screen, you have the NFC icon showing in bold. Just tap on it and it should shut NFC down
    .
    Go to Settings and in the search box type "Smart capture". When that appears tap on it and make sure that the slider is set on. You should be able to capture screen with a swipe after this.

    I know with my S7 I had an Otterbox case on it and it made the hand gesture near impossible because it covered the edge of the screen. The Spigen case I got doesn't cause the same issue. .. Not sure if this is the case with you or not.
