Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge review – What A Great Phone

594

This is one of the hottest phones on the market right now and I’ll tell you why. The Galaxy S7 Edge has a sleek design which is made of glass and metal it comes equipped with a great battery, camera, expandable storage, and a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen. The Galaxy S7 Edge is an improvement from its predecessors the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 edge+. This phone is completely waterproof and it has a Micro-SD card slot. Despite having a bigger longer lasting battery than its predecessors the battery is not removable.

Pros

  • Nice user interface
  • Great for playing games
  • Great battery life
  • It’s waterproof

Cons

  • The metal and glass combination makes the phone a bit slippery.
  • The battery is not removable

 

The Galaxy S7 Edge uses the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system. Samsung claims that this phone has one of the best cameras on a cell phone.

 

This phone has a super dual pixel camera sensor built in. The sensor is somewhat special because of the dual pixel technology, which Samsung claims that it allows the user to take amazing, DSLR quality low light images while using the phone.

 

The dual pixel sensor uses larger pixels than that of the Galaxy S6’s camera, and it has a f/1.7 aperture. The fast phase detection autofocus feature makes proper usage of 100 percent of the pixels, which also helps in producing great pictures, even in low light. The 12 MP camera sensor is small and sleek which minimizes the impact it has on the phone.

 

The Galaxy S7 edge comes packed with other accessories such as the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. The fingerprint scanner is a great feature because it provides some additional security and makes it a bit more convenient when browsing the web and it provides quick access to certain applications such as, money transfers from PayPal and online banking. It’s extremely useful and it’s quick and easy to set up.

 

For people who enjoy playing games on the phone, there is a game launcher feature which allows you to play a game without being disturbed. This works by blocking notifications that you may have received while playing the game and by lowering the frame rate which saves power. This feature also allows you to records the screen while you are playing.

 

The always on feature allows you to get basic information without touching the phone. You will receive information such as time, date, battery percentage as well as notifications. In terms of looks and functionality, the Galaxy S7 Edge stands out from its predecessors.

 

The Galaxy S7 Edge is available with the following service providers Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.  In my opinion, the Galaxy S7 Edge will be one of the best phones for 2016. Please share your experience with me about the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in the comment box below.

    NIce quality post of a review for the S7. A few spelling errors on the first paragraph that I noticed but easily fixable.
    I had a galaxy s4 for years and really liked it. The only two problems I could think of with it were the fact that many of my apps wouldn’t open and the charging port got so damaged that I couldn’t charge it anymore. Have they changed the charging ports yet?

      Thanks for the feedback Alec, I’m sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with the Galaxy s4. However, the Galaxy S7 has wireless charging so this will not be an issue.

    Hi,

    One thing I love is new gadgets fresh on the market. I have only heard great things about the new Samsung Galaxy s7 edge and its one device id love to get my hands on. I’m currently still with the Samsung galaxy s5 neo which is good and does the job considering how many years it’s been out.

    One question I’d like to ask you though is out of the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy s7 edge which one would you rather buy?

    Thanks,
    Josh

      I appreciate the feedback Joshua, if I had to choose between the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, I would choose the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Both phones perform very well but the Galaxy S7 Edge has a better camera and a better battery life than that of the iPhone 7.
