    My S7 Edge, seems to jump screens all the time, when I don't even press that icon. For example i just put my phone down, and the phone screen opened up. It seems like this happens often with other apps as well. Anyone else?

    Try this, it might help.

    Go to Settings/Language and input/Pointer speed. Move the slider towards slow.

    I've heard there are issues with unintended screen touches due to the side of your hand hitting the edge, maybe that's what you are seeing.

    I do find the ui overly sensitive. Especially when in the pocket.

    I've been toying with one in the Samsung shop today and noticed the edges are sensitive and easy to catch it when gripping the phone.

    I've heard an Os update is coming out.
