    I absolutely love my S7 Edge, it's my best smart phone by far. I have to really nitpick to find things I don't like. Definitely a step up from my S4, M8, and Note 4. However, I do have one thing I would like to figure out.

    I've had this pet peeve for many of my phones, including my brand new S7 edge. This is the ONLY thing I like better that apple does with it's software. Their PIN lock screens are large, with spread out numbers taking up the whole screen.

    Is there ANY way to do this for my phone? I have big thumbs and I keep pressing too many numbers. I just want a PIN lock screen that is much larger, like it was meant for my 5.5" screen, and not something meant for a 4" screen.

    Is there an app for this possibly? I have tried many different lock screen apps without success.

    It looked to me like some of the themes had larger PIN pads. You might check on some of those, a lot of them are free, but they're on the Samsung app store. You can find themes in your personalization settings or by a long press on the home screen.
    That being said, I have mine set to a PIN code, but I also have fingerprints set up, so when the PIN pad comes up, it has an option to use the fingerprint. So far the fingerprint reader has worked flawlessly. Any restart of the phone will require the first unlock to be a PIN instead of the fingerprint.
