zamroni, 31 Mar 2016Touchwiz is miles and miles behind Android AOSP. This is my first Samsung phone. So far, Sony'... moreNot really. Touchwiz is very advanced and has many advantages over aosp.
In fact modified touchwiz with a custom kernel has become the most functional experience i have ever had.
Even on my note 2 there was barely any speed difference between touchwiz 4.4 modified verses a good cm12 rom.
I don't know what everybody is talking about, heating??? Battery??? Phone is always at room temperature or thereabouts no metter what I do.. my phone ends a 17 hours heavy usage day with about 50% juice. Interface, speed & overall experience is out if the world. I was pessimistic about the gaudy gold color, (1st ever non black phone for me) but it is a real gem & a stunner, couldn't find the silver:-) since my SG2 this is the best galaxy ever. My only complaint; Samsung could have given us all this a year ago but pilfred me & millions of 800$ for my great old SM-925 64gb.. shame on them & kudos for the best Samsung phone ever my SM-930. I am smitten again :-) just shut up & enjoy it
Samsung s7 is heating problem and bettery life Is very bad,so I want to sale my Samsung s7,

I used the exynos version and there is no LTE/3G mode. I haven't used 2G voice for years. Now, if I want to use LTE, I must take risk of getting 2G voice call, which has terrible quality, because of LTE/3G/2G mode.
Even cheap Xiaomi has LTE/3G mode.
Beautiful display. Gaming and media viewing experience great.
No IR blaster which disappoints me.
For just an hour ago i trade in my Note 5 to S7, and actually i wrote this comments on my brand new S7, and you now what, i realise that this is a very good phone.. Beautiful and powerfull
What's the background / theme used on the s7 edge in the picture on the main page?
This S7 (Exynos Version) has been very helpful.. but as we know, both (Snapdragon and Exynos) are such a different thing.. So.. can you please make the review for the Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon 820? Or at least, can you please show the Benchmarks? :)
Mr. Protagonist, 18 Mar 2016So you are saying if I buy a S7 then I should install Nova Launcher. Sorry sir but I expect a ... moreNo you dont have to install nova.
And just because updates are provided does not mean its better.
Its more than obvious you never used anybwith such naive comment.
Ios might have their uniform updates because of their own closed platform seeding to a limitted amount of devices.....but thats the only reason why.
Its limited software controlelled by them on few existing devices.
Just because its getting an update doesnt mean the update is the best one to grace the tech world.
And just because they claim its the best phone to walk the earth doesnt mean it is.
Dont you know youre not supposed to believe every little thing youre told? Especially such obviously ridiculous things???
Touchwiz and android are miles and miles ahead of ios. Ios has a couple advantages because of the above. But is a far cry from any form of that supposed optimizing.
Touchwiz outpaces all other uis in many aspects. But like all others is far from perfect....like ALL others.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016if you are so clever try Nova launcher or something like that BUT with Apple you cant. Just st... moreSo you are saying if I buy a S7 then I should install Nova Launcher. Sorry sir but I expect a polished interface at such price. I never owned either Apple or Samsung but at least Apple can provide timely updates and iOS is miles ahead than Touchwiz.
So hey dubious, cantankerous person you can suck on your S7 after installing Nova and what not to get the look you have dreamt of while I will enjoy my Nexus :)

DONT EVER SELL IT WHEN U HAVE NEW PHONE ALSO in the future. Use it as your back up phone... FOREVER. Best experience? You're kidding yourself man...
It was 16:00 Yesterday, the Phone Screen Flashed.. I was amazed to find the Notification Say: One New Update..
As it was SM N910G, I thought, they took so much pain to release the OS Upgrade.. Within next 2 Hours, The Note 4 Indian Version will be getting the Much Awaited Marshmallow Update..
Connected my Mobile to Power Socket, Swiped in the Lock Pattern..
There it was..
Security Patch Update
Now My Question is:
When Am I getting the Marshmallow Upgrade? Collectively.. When are we, the Samsung SM N910G Owners have an OS Update.. In another 6 Months, the N will be seeding on to S7 edge.. Still NO SIGN OF MARSHMALLOW..
Samsung Please.. Do the Needful, LG, HTC, have 6.1 on them by this time..!

Anonymous, 14 Mar 2016Iphone 6s has the same price as Samsung S7....If they are both priced almost equally, I'd rather buy the 6s. Its re-sale value is way way better than the s7.
Mkdc, 16 Mar 2016There's no denying that resale value and prestige wise, iphone will always be the top. Samsung... moreIf they are the same price you are still getting a better deal with the S7 and price gouging with the iphone.
I dont know about you but i buy a phone for what it has and to use it. Not which resells better
