Edited by David Mason, Eng, VisiHow, wolfqueen and 1 other

Too often we buy a new cell phone that gets turned on or turned off in the shop where it's purchased. Many times that means we don't actually know how to turn the phone on or off. It's not that we haven't turned phones on or off in the past. Rather it's that phone manufacturers really like to move the power buttons around and change how things get turned on and turned off. However, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is easy to power on and easy to power off. In the tutorial below we will show you how to turn your phone on, how to restart your phone, and how to turn off your S7. Read on for our tutorial, and don't forget that if you need to know how to charge your phone, we've also how to quickly charge your Galaxy S7.

I need help... my Galaxy will not let me turn off an ad that popped up?

I can't turn it off... reset.. or call or answer calls an ad popped up and hasn't let me click the exit button.. it only lets me touch and scroll the ad... I can't move it from the middle of the screen so when I try to turn it off it is covering the turn-off and restart button. I need help asap!. I have tried: I tried pulling up the camera hoping it go away... not work.... I tried having someone call me... didn't work.. can't even answer it.... I tried pushing the turn off button but the ad is over it and I can't move the ad over to touch it.... I tried everything!. I think it was caused by: I have a security app so I think it's throwing ads for other security apps onto my screen... but this is the first one that won't let me exit it out of
