If you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, I have great news for you: it seems that you can already get all the Galaxy S8 features thanks to “OnTheEdgeLite”, a custom ROM which is almost a full Galaxy S8 port. Do you like this idea? Then, don’t hesitate to keep on reading to see what the ROM is about and how to install it on your phone.
The Galaxy S8+ ROM port listed below is a custom ROM based on stock Samsung Experience firmware (previously known as TouchWiz) in a package of no more than 1.50 GB. Since I am here with this guide, you can already imagine that it has been tested on S7 Edge, therefore you can take it without worrying about a thing if this is the handset that you also use.
I can though assure you of the fact that OnTheEdgeLite ROM is the closest thing you will get to experiencing the full Galaxy S8 experience on another handset at this point. It is based on the latest G935FXXU1DQCE stock base, it is debloated, deodexed, as well as rooted with Magisk. And even more, it gives you all the Galaxy S8 apps and features that people talk about these days, so that’s your chance to feel their taste too. I must though warn you that the ported Galaxy S8 Live wallpapers are not fully working yet, but things won’t remain like that forever.
