However, as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge devices and their firmware are now available, developers and Android enthusiasts have started porting the latest TouchWiz UI onto other Samsung devices. One such lucky device is the Note 5. Earlier we posted the S7 Edge ROM ports for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 3, etc. and the firmware runs with no major bugs. Here are are some of the best Samsung Galaxy S7 ROM Ports for the Note 5. Now these are custom ROMS and some of them are not completely based on the Galaxy S7 base firmware as that is not completely possible at this early stage.
