New for the S7, alongside the introduction of Android 6 Marshmallow as the base operating system, Samsung has also added a way to help you minimize battery consumption while playing games. This is achieved primarily through the Game Launcher app, which lets you cap the frame rate to 30fps and reduce the resolution, so you have fun without worrying about the battery going flat.
HTC's flagship for 2016 was a good phone, but it was overshadowed by the Galaxy S7. That's not to say that the S7 was necessarily better, but they each appeal to different audiences. The 10 received Nougat last year, and it does have a decent developer scene. The unlocked and T-Mobile models are easier to tweak, but they also go for a premium. The Verizon model is your best bet for GSM and Verizon use alike, and S-OFF/root can be achieved through the Sunshine service for $35-40 by sending it in. It's a little tedious, but the option's there if you need it.
Before starting the rooting process, you will have to download the Odin file on your Samsung duos. Then you will have to download the auto-root file from Chainfire for S7 and S7 Edge and save both on the computer. Since you will get compressed files, you will have to unzip them, get files with.tar.md5 extension before you begin the process.
Go to Odin tool and click on the Auto Root button. Now you will need to browse your computer for the .tar.md5 file saved earlier the step no 3. Once you pick up the root file, click on Start and continue with the process.
Through this guide, you will learn how to install TWRP recovery, disable forced-encryption, and root your Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge using Magisk. The provided files and instructions are compatible with any Exynos variant of the S7 or S7 Edge.

The only real downside here is that the US variants of the Note7 are still using the same Snapdragon 820 chip featured in the Galaxy S7, while an improved model (Snapdragon 821) is ready to be released any day now. The Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S7 cannot be rooted without some serious hackery, so we'll have to see if this issue plagues the Note7 as well. 2b1af7f3a8
