I recently changed from note 4 to lg g5. Although I like the g5, I have to say to say I miss touchwiz. A lot of the little features I got used to just aren't here. I find the lg a bit overly simplistic. Still good though but I would consider putting a touchwiz rom on if possible.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2016Nope ,they are very fast and very efficient my friend.Mediatek is trash in the fact it is impossible to get custom roms due to it being closed source. Its latest x20 is nothing in comparison to SD820/821 and that it rarely gets updated to newer versions of android due it being hard to optimise for. Exynos is samsungs competitive cpu that they are now using due to it being cheaper to manufacture and produce in their own that they can optimise completely for newer android versions but lacks custom roms, it is also faster in comparison to the SD 820 in the S7 line due to the version of android its running on with touchwizz is made for it and just ported to the SD 820. Overall SD is still the best due to community builds and roms, get your facts right.
SkorN, 28 Jun 2016Are you looking at this phone with a microscope or what? Can you differentiate 300ppi display ... moreYes, many people can.
There is a difference between my previous 300ppi screen with my current 400+ ppi.
SkorN, 28 Jun 2016Are you looking at this phone with a microscope or what? Can you differentiate 300ppi display ... moreThose are the types of customer they call consumers ;)
In all fairness tho, yes the higher PPI is noticable in some uses.
Navya, 28 Jun 2016But Samsung Galaxy Note & is not coming with 4k display which is sadAre you looking at this phone with a microscope or what? Can you differentiate 300ppi display from a 500ppi display just by looking at it? Mobile companies need these type of customers to sell their new gimmicks. What if they invest on a shatterproof display instead of these nonsense. Oh wait, then their spare parts sale go down.... i get it
mahi, 28 Jun 2016i want it to be lunched with snapdragon processor in india.... not with the exynos shitty proc... moreI dont know about mediatek but from what I have heard, exynos chips are better than snapdragon. The only thing thats bad about exynos is that custom roms are harder to make.

I can understand people who have had bad experience with touchwiz in the past, especially s4 and s5, they where the worst for lag. But I work in a phone shop and I can honestly say I have not sold a single nexus since February. So clearly there has got to be something that people must really love about the Samsung user inferface. I don't think Samsung will change their UI anytime soon if it's that same UI that is giving them the sales. Forcing pure android to customers who have been using touchwiz for a long time will be a stupid thing to do by Samsung. Like seriously. Yes some times Touchwiz is overloaded but if google are copying a lot of their features from touchwiz then there must be something great about touchwiz. for example, multiple windows and VR support. something Samsung have been doing for a bit. I mean there is a reason why Samsung are the top smartphone manufacture in the world. and also if touch wiz is not for you then either go for a nexus phone or another brand because Samsungs fan base is too big right now for them to just randomly change everything that makes Samsung what it is.
ithehappy, 28 Jun 2016I think it's about time Samsung give up on TouchWiz. I've been using TW since S2, and have had... moreStock android is more useless on Samsung's phone. Why do you think Google stop asking them to make Nexus devices and even the Google Edition S4 is a flop since it has less usable features without the Touchwiz.
If Samsung using stock android, it doesn't support Samsung Pay, Edge apps, palm swipes screenshot, eyes tracking, iris scanner, notes spen, built-in youtube live in camera apps, split-screen, dualpixel camera optimization, taking notes directly with spen without turning on the screen, always-on display(due to superamoled), pressure sensitive screen, continuos-scroll screenshots, theme stores(also able to give ghe stock android experience) and many others.
So, if it is using stock android what the point of using all the fancy hardwares that only Touchwiz can support? That concludes Samsung's phone is just not meant to be used with stock android.
Chris, 28 Jun 2016Please samsung this time we want ir blaster on note 7I totally agree !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i want it to be lunched with snapdragon processor in india.... not with the exynos shitty processor .... and mali gpu.... mediatek and exynos are worst processors with worst gpu's ....
Armali, 28 Jun 2016i am not an apple fanboy, never bought an iphone and i think never will? anyways it's not abou... moreSo, here is my personal experience after using the S7 edge for nearly 2 months now.
I have experienced "LAG" only ONCE in the past 2 months but that was due to me downloading nearly 14GB of pics from my Google Drive in my phone and simultaneously copying a lot of data from the internal memory to an external memory card. But im still marvelled that the phone could manage all those Read/Write operations!
Other than that, no lag whatsoever in the phone till now. I have used S1, S2, S3 and S4 till now (and yes, all these phones lagged after one month of usage coz the damn touchwiz so too heavy for the phones to handle). The day S5 was out, I hated Samsung for making something that looks like a bandaid. The day S6 was out, I fell in love with the phone, but didnt buy it coz of the lack of expandable memory. Finally S7 edge came out and it had everything i needed in a phone. And till date, i do not regret my decision at all of buying S7 edge.
I use the phone VERY extensively. I usually charge my phone twice a day, but thats due to my usage and not a fault of the phone. My wife has the same phone and her phone lasts nearly 1 n half days on a single charge. So you can understand how i bash the phone around everyday.
I doubt that they saying TW laggy are using latest Galaxy phone, they are just Samsung haters. No phone has zero lag anyway.
I wish Samsung is more serious about their Tizen OS.
Tizen much better than iOS because Tizen is open source.
Tizen much better than Android because opening app faster.
