Been using this phone for a few days and very impressed. Touchwizz is very polished and very configurable, you can even disable most of the built in google and Samsung apps. Battery life is good and the camera is amazing. Build quality is top notch too.
After seeing all three successors, I can safely say that edge screen functionality offered by note edge was badass. I would also love to see the people's edge and edge lightning on note edge.
Secondly, it is really impressive to see that a 4 years old nokia 808 pureview is still holding its ground in the sunlight contrast ratio department with score of 4.698. Only s6 edge+ has come near it with score of 4.615. Really, come back nokia.

So you are stuck with what you have. Just drank with it. I'm sure they are both great.

Sure, the s5 is slightly newer, but seeing as how speed and seamless performance is supposed to be the only advantage of iphones it was disappointing nonetheless.

Would GSMARENA kindly indicate when doing the Samsung Galaxy Tests, which camera Sensor the test unit actually has.
What happened with the S6 is that all the reviews were conducted using S6s which had the Sony Sensors, and these produce sterling results upon which consumers base their decision to acquire the handset.
However, when the phone goes into mass production, Samsung starts fitting them with their own Isocell sensors. Say what they will, the images produced by these 2 sensors are not the same, and the Sony does produce the more superior image.
BTW, I'm a user of a S6, with a Isocell sensor.
Galaxy S6 Edge, Battery is very good
Camera is very good, only LG G5 can match this beast in 2016
Sheeps please wait for 7 before making any comment
lower than budget class phone with premium price.

Anonymous, 15 Mar 2016I don't need s7 review.ineed mi5,lg g5,xperia x performance.g5 got the best smartphone 2016 in MWC award by gsmarena not mwc2016
hand this is user poll
I got an S7 Edge (after my LG G2) and while it is a great phone in some aspect, it does have some annoyances:
- Lack of double-tap to wake is a major drawback
- The Always-On screen does not display all notifications, only missed calls and SMS messages.
- The notification LED cannot be easily controlled by 3rd party apps like LightFlow or Light Manager.
The LG G5 seems to be better in all of these areas, but the battery life of the G5 will probably be quite disappointing (but let's wait and see...).

In the end, this is what you need. Try to borrow a Samsung phone for 2-3 weeks and then take a decision.
the s7edge is the best smartphone for now
browser need some optimisation for sure
no changable battery is not a problem after 2or3 years of use you can change it arround 70$
s7 edge my next smartphone 😍😍

You need to root the phone if you want this thing.
Even so, the phone will freeze.You have to get used with that. Yes, it's frustrating because you are paying a lot of money but... I am telling you that from my experience. Get used with that ! :)
Yes, everything is OK for the first few months while the phone is new but then,..the problems appear.
