Seems pretty clear cut to me, if you want to play games you want the S820 version, if you aren't interested in games then you probably aren't going to notice any difference between them in real world applications.
How can these numbers be justified and be near phones like iPhone, while having the latest and greatest? No need to mention that Sami makes chips for iPhone!!!
"...The Quad HD resolution takes its toll on the onscreen test - the Xiaomi Mi 5 does a lot better, yet the Galaxy S7 edge doubles the S6 edge's score....."
Yeah double the ridiculous low score of the S6... a still ridiculous 15fps. Onscreen score should be 30fps no matter what you do. These QHD are a serious problem when you want to play a decent game. Imagine what a ridiculous frame-rate you can expect in VR!!!
Manufacturers URGENTLY need to use their few functioning brain-cells. It's stupid to increase CPU and GPU performance and then waste it on ridiculous high screen-resolutions. Especially when the difference is negligible with regards to sharpness but has a huge impact on frame-rates.

In case you didn't know, an android flagship has an OS update timeline for about three times. SOO it's able to support at least 3 OS versions which are OR updates unless you can Flash. CAN THE IOS BE FLASHED WITH CUSTOM ROMS? as far as I know the first nexus phone the HTC nexus one was Able to run Android Marshmallow, can the first gen iPhone run iOS 9??? Lol... Maybe you're just being a Mr smarty pants who doesn't know about it, or you just don't have an android flagship. LOL.

I wonder why nobody noticed that Samsung has TWO DIFFERENT CAMERA SENSORS (CAMERAGATE) in S7/S7 Edge. One made by Sony and the other is Samsung inhouse. Google it. I am disappointed why they don't go honest about it.

But still, qualcomm did a great job, looking forward to the 830 or so
Abbadonsgey, 17 Mar 2016Qualcomm SD820 the best!! The benchmarks can give you that idea, but videos show it's not and the Samsung CPU is best in a big time way next to it when doing basic take like opening apps and loading games and so on

Guys, I bought this phone on Sunday. Had S5 and S2 before. If with S2 I had problems and lag and this year it died and the S5 still being a great phone and has quite some features which I miss the S7 Edge it's just AMAZING!
+ looks, power, everything opens in a fraction of a second, battery lasts more than one day, perfect screen, night mode and adapt on mode, beautiful pictures;
- missing some functions from S5 which I would have wanted (IR blast, DLNA, detachable battery), hard to find some things and apps and need to research on internet and search in the phone to find them, better audio levels
Why don't you change the area you use for camera testing,with something more colourful,with flowers,statues.fountains etc?This road and the gas station doesn't say anything about the camera's quality.
