Im stuck in a very similar situation, but the factory reset isn't helping. Starting last night my phone entered a boot loop, and would restart every two-four minutes after the first "Galaxy S7" screen. It gets very hot. This is a standard, unrooted, undamaged stock Verizon Galaxy S7 that was updated OTA with the new Oreo patch a few days ago. My major difficulty is that I am in a small town in Iceland on business for the next five weeks, so I do not have easy access to any kind of repair center. I have only been using OEM Samsung chargers. I tried all of these things, and the phone continues to reboot: 1. Wiped the cache partititon many times. 2. Entered safe mode multiple times. 3. After a few hours of this, I realized that I needed to try a factory reset. So I used Smart Switch to thankfully save all my contacts, images, messages, etc. Initially the phone would not stay on long enough to back up, but eventually the phone, while untouched and connected to Smart Switch, worked long enough to back up everything. This took 45 mins to an hour without boot looping. 4. I removed the SIM and SD card, booted to recovery mode, and factory reset the device. It kept rebooting while I tried to set up the phone via WIFI. 5. I let the battery completely die, and then factory reset the device. 5. At this point the device, when plugged into an outlet, continues to restart after a few minutes and stays warm to the touch. Please help. I desperately need my smartphone, and do not have the funds to buy a new one.
