Don't Root If You Hate Dealing with Problems
If you hate troubleshooting problems, rooting your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge probably isn't a good idea at this point.
At the most basic level, there are problems with the Galaxy S7 Nougat root. Users are reporting issues with the Sprint versions of the Galaxy S7. Some root users are running into serious lag after successfully rooting their phone.
That's just one issue. There's a chance something more serious could happen to you and your device before, or after, the rooting process. We've heard many horror stories over the years including tales of bricked devices. The last thing you want to do is brick your Galaxy S7, particularly if it's a device you rely on for school or work.
This goes beyond problems with the root itself. There's also a good chance you'll run into issues with various apps and services once you root Nougat and your Galaxy S7.
Also remember that you'll need to rely on the Android community for help. App developers, your carrier and Samsung probably provide any answers to your problems if they know you're rooted.
Companies can't legally void your warranty if you root your device but they will make things very difficult for you.
If you aren't prepared to handle issues with the root itself or the problems that come after, you'll want to stick on stock software.
