As 2016 continues and more and more buyers decide to become the owners of Samsung’s Galaxy S7, additional reports about issues appear from nowhere. Some of them are the usual ones that we see every day on all Android devices and aren’t anything major, but others are unique and owners will want to read such guides for some helpful tips and suggestions.

One of them is none other than the Galaxy S7 Email App inserting the first letter when typing. So, when you spell a word, make a mistake and delete all but the first letter, things should be normal. However, when you go to re-spell the word it inserts the first letter again – MMistake – and it gets annoying. Really annoying!

Is this happening to you as well?
