    I have a Samsung s5 and a Tab4. Both work fine, though I do notice that startup sequence seems important. In my case I get good fast connection if the drone is fully powered up first so it can be seen when the remote powers on. You could try playing with various orders to see what works for you.

    So another thing I'm going to try is just tether signal from s7 to s5 and just use the s5

    May or may not mean anything but...

    A buddy of mine at work is far more into the nuts and bolts of android than I am. He told me the S7 was the first Samsung product to be 'locked down' and lots of people aren't happy about it. Apparantly Samsung always said they would never go the Apple route and stop people from changing to custom firmware etc. (IE: Jailbreaking). But with the s7 they did just that. Maybe that lock down is affecting something more than they thought.

    You could try putting it in developer mode and allowing unrestricted USB activity. Can't hurt if you already can't connect.
