No IR blaster and no FM radio as a con?
FM radio is understandable, I use it to save my data, but I never use the IR blaster on my phone, doesn't make sense to me.
(I have an LG G3)
S7 looks nice, but setting off the AOD is a must, it kills the battery too much for what it does, I would say buy a normal (smart)watch if you need to...

the design of this phone reminds me of Huawei G8 which released last year, is it coincidence? :D
I don't like the exynos variant. Snapdragon 820 is so much better this year. Shame it will not be available in Europe. Adreno graphics has 30% advantageove Mali. And even the single core performance is better.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016lol I can see you are now stuck with an old Apple phone. Trust God not Apple.iphone 6 plus is an old iphone ? What ? And I don't trust apple,is so hard for you to check a benchmark ? The only downside at iphones is that are have low RAM.But its not a big problem,2GB of RAM în ios can competent with 4GB on android.And ios can do anything android can with jailbreak

How many do you want. iOS has quick toggles for wifi, flight mode, blue light filter, bluetooth, do not disturb. Universal back key i really dont see as a problem at all. App switching is more useful, and edge swipes for forward and backwards movement in apps supplies all of the funtionality of a back key. No true multitasking? In what sense. Apps can do what they need in the background. iPad can split screen, iPhone no, as screen is too small. Media consumption is no problem, if using legal content, really easy. If illegal content, then some fantastic third party apps that will manage and playback content. I am not sure any of your points are relevant. You have just got used to the way your current OS works and find anything that doesnt work exactly the same is more difficult/annoying. That is the same for anything when you get used to something, change is generally more difficult
Long time apple user recently switched to the samsung s6 128gb and love it. But why would I want the s7 with 32gb, I know you can add a SD card but samsung messed that up too. The s6 is the better phone.
How long it can record 4k? Last time it was 5min... Also considering amoled I wonder how phone would last in inverse colors.
vyshak, 12 Mar 2016Wait for the endurance rating of LG G5 before the assumptions... As I said, as long as the G5 scores at least 70, I won't consider the S7. If you understand electronics, constantly switching on and off burns power fast. This is the reason I think AMOLED isn't as efficient as tests suggest. Tests show static images, while normal usage has changing images (on and off switching OLEDs)
Mr. Protagonist, 12 Mar 2016It took 5 to 6 generations to Samsung to finally build a good design phone. I guess I have to ... moreif you are so clever try Nova launcher or something like that BUT with Apple you cant. Just stuck like sheep and putting flowers on the grave of Jobs. I can feel your loss. RIP S.Jobs and Apple

When games start using it multicore performance will become far more important. Also, all apps with heavy usage, like Web browser, maps, mail, use multiple cores efficiently.
And ios is crippled. Doesn't have quick settings in notification tab, can't install night mode and a number of other utility apps, no universal back key, no true multitasking, media consumption is made more difficult than it should be, and a number of other things I use on a daily basis. That's the very definition of crippled.
I like big phones,Top specs, and a large screen make a perfect phone but this tiny one no way to buy Samsung need to make a big phone at least 6.4"inch then we can talk
