Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge

Date Written: 2/25/2016

Samsung has announced the latest models in the Galaxy S phone series with the S7 and the S7 Edge. They are set to be released next month (March 2016). At first glance they look very similar to the S6 and S6 Edge, but subtle improvements to the design have made the devices have a better 'feel' when in use.

One of the new features is the 'Always On' display which lets the user pick what information they want to always have on screen even when the device is not in use. The phones also include a microSD card slot which was missing in the S6, but was in previous versions of the phone. It is also water resistant again. The battery size has been increased which should combat the user complaints about the S6 that the battery life was not good enough. The camera actually has less megapixels than in the past (12 vs 16), but Samsung says this will allow for better low-light images. The camera also has been sped up to make autofocus happen faster and the camera launch faster.

The S7 and S7 Edge are more of a refinement of the previous models versus ground breaking releases. With that said, many believe that they will be the best phones that Samsung has ever made.
