Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016yeah. i will too. samsung despite using sd 820 .marshmallow. amoled has such a low endurage r... moreWhat nonsense are you talking about? Amoled is very efficient, and Samsung's qhd doesn't take that much more battery than fhd. Overall battery endurance for the s7 should be much better than the g5, and there's no way it'll compare with the s7 edge.
vasilisA3, 12 Mar 2016iOS is matter of time to became android. If do so then there is no chance to 6s to beat Galaxy... moreS4 is comparable in performance with iphone 5 or lets say 5S,just check some benchmarks or speed test videos,iphone 6S is faster even than S7.I think you are an ignorant samsung fan who thinks that 100 care CPU with 5 GHz is better than a dual core with 1.8 GHz and 100 megapixels are better than 12..
Grey1213, 12 Mar 2016Only people who don't understand anything start citing antutu like that. For some silly reason... moreProblem is. Yes Samsung will win in a multi core test. iPhone will win in Single core test. But how many apps are optimised for all 8 cores? Is the operating system fully optimised to take full advantage of 8 cores? Single core would be more important I would suggest as it would be used more often. 2nd, iOS is crippled? Really? Please discuss. Whilst nobody doubts that Android has more customisation, please enlighten the readers as to what Android does that is so much better that makes iOS crippled
ninugie, 12 Mar 2016S7 scores lower than the iphone 6s in antutu. And maybe the galaxy s12 will catch up the 6s at... moreOnly people who don't understand anything start citing antutu like that. For some silly reason antutu 6.0 severely underweight multicore when api like vulkan would give them much much more value. Antutu also doesn't take resolution into account, so having 4x the number of pixels severely hurts the score.
In reality, the s7 performs better. And that says nothing about how android has much m9re functionality than the crippled ios to the point it shouldn't matter even if the iPhone has better performance.
vino41, 12 Mar 2016Do I need to test the battery by myself for myself?Battery test takes longer, it usually comes later.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016No in everything S7 still beat iphone7 lol apart from that the 6 month old iPhone 6S has better CPU and GPU performance. Thats before the iPhone 7 even comes out. Now its funny, iPhone users have for years said benchmarks dont matter its about real world performance, whilst Samsung guys were claiming to be the best based on their benchmarks. Funny now that Samsung arent number 1, suddenly the same people say benchmarks dont matter. Im not saying that they do, because they generally dont, but its funny how attitude has changed now that Samsung are not number 1 in benchmarks
its worse, but the tests arent in real life, -I have the s7 edge and have 7h SOT over 2days

Not a big issue. always on display can be turned off. If we see over all then, the battery life is fine with Exynos Octa, QHD. It depends on people usage. I have seen iphone, samsung, HTC, Sony users who use power bank, charging battery while driving car, plugging in USB charging while sitting on laptop, but all in all, all phones revolve around the same battery life. I use power bank and i never faced issues with battery life. Moreover, I feel that the battery start to die when we update the phone. To sum up, there is nothing like Apple vs samsung vs Lg vs HTC vs Sony vs Xiaomi etc, all phones are great, so whatever you choose, just go for it. Gud luck frds.. Enjoy :)

How can GSM Arena not consider the MS apps as bloatware? It's exactly that. It can't be uninstalled, likely only deactivated, and Sami only put it on the phone for good old money. I always have to look at the ugly icons.
What is then stamina of meizu pro5, Z5compact, note4, A9 in comparison? It's a shame.
Hope GSMARENA team posts the benchmark results and battery life results for Snapdragon 820 powered variant as well........ I'm hearing that SD820 powered version may have lower battery life.
That said, even the Exynos powered version had lower battery life than I was expecting. Note 5 has a bigger screen and the same 3000 mAH but manages to post better battery life.
Talk time - Note5 - 28:34 , S7 - 22:57
Browsing - Note5 - 10:43 , S7 - 9:34
Video - Note5 - 13:51, S7 - 14:50
Seems battery life is the price you have to pay for the extra performance.
