I've heard lots of mixed reviews about the s7 compatibility and performance. Already assuming I have changed to MTP mode, what can i expect? (other than a small screen) I'm doing my best to not break down and buy an iPad right off the bat. Also, has anyone had much luck with some of the newer budget Android tablets? 3 days and counting until i recieve my p3p! :)

Yes. I've used mine a few times but seem to get more lag from control movement to video than I do from my ipad mini 2

I am using Galaxy S7 for four months without any problem.The phone doesn't even get hot.No lag at all.I also used an ipad mini 3 but it was becoming boiling hot during the flight.
Same here I used to use a Galaxy S5 and now the S7 edge. No problems of any description with either of them. Super smooth and a bright screen. Never gets warm.

S7 exynos ( international version ) here and its super smooth.

The u.s version of s7 uses a different processor ( sd820 )

I have been using a galaxy s7 with my p3a for about 20 flights and no problems. Make sure you calibrate your phone compass and fly in airplane mode.

Also make sure usb debugging is on.

Yep, the s7 works great. Dare I say smoother than my girlfriends IPhone 6s. (Which was really nice as well) cheers!
