Lol when i first look at the specs of the phone i know it already that it will consume a lot of battery power...i mean look at the chipset it has sd820 and exynos mongoose and the gpu it has adreno 530 and Mali-T880 MP12 say what? Its OP yes but its overated thats y i know the battery of this phone wont even last for a day...
HORRIBLE!........ I am returning it tomorrow and going back to my S5 that I love. Why? because the S7 was made to sell charging pads and to screen protectors. Also, It is SO slippery and heavy, that is a recipe for disaster. that it is guaranteed to hit the ground soon and cost me big bucks to repair (Gorilla Glass? give me a break) The battery is the same one as in the S5, do not let them tell you any different, it does NOT have better battery life. You can kill it with GPS just as fast as you can with the S5. The fast charger? its a lie. I have chargers from past devices that charge it just as fast (to the minute!) Example; my old Palm Plug!!!!. Others showed up the battery scale as working the same as the so-called "fast charger", ok, some didn't, but a few DID!. Just total B.S., The big issue? with my S5, I carry 3 extra batteries with me in my bag at all times. When walking around the city all day, using GPS, i go through 3-4 batteries. With my S5 i just pop another in at about $10 each.With the S7, you are stuck with buying a back up battery charger, that will take maybe....30 minute s to charge. Are you willing to wait that long when you need it RIGHT NOW????? not me!. You are spending more money for less here..... lose it. (PS- CNET says: "THE GOOD" is Polished design. Awesome camera. Long battery life. MicroSD storage slot and water-resistant (again!). Polished? yeah, to DROP! awesome camera? yeah, its nice, but I own a Nikon D610 for pictures. Long Battery life?.... i dont think so, MicroSD slot? So does the s5!!!... water resistant? DON'T SWIM WITH YOUR PHONE!
Its been a month since i bought it. I have not more than 7 installed apps, which i had previously in a Sony Zl without probs. Allthough, the s7 edge has got stuck/blocked twice during the night when im not using it, not letting me even go to the main screen....completely stuck, i did reset it both times and it worked properly again. What samsung says? U gotta reset it to factory data/settings because "maybe" is a SW issue. Im not sure if you are willing to pay 600-800 USD for a cellphone in which u cannot trust. Besides these two issues...loving it
I wanted to love it. I don't. It doesn't live up to its "best phone on the market" hype. The battery life is less than my cheap Grand Prime. Samsung has per their own customersupport "removed" the option of applying downloaded fonts. Small thing? Yes but I like changing my fonts frequently and I could on my Grand Prime, Avant, S3 and S5. My new very expensive phone does less than my previous honestly which cost less that half the price. I'm sorry I got this item.
hello guys you know galaxy s series are always best..... new feature always came in s series .... so without any doubt you got it.. i like samsung s series always
Did anyone notice that s7/edge lag when play nfs no limit? Mine exynos variant. First time its normal, buat after 5 to 10 races (especilly at the stage that have 4 cars race together), s7/edge lag or slow motion like. I dont know its happen to snapdragon variant or not cause i cant get the snapdragon variant here. i
'll wait for htc10 for comparison.
S7 based on Qualcomm 820 (US and China) easily overheats and restarts. Thats a big problem for those who want to run games or video calls.
Adi, 23 May 2016in short....S7 is koenigsegg and please stop comparing it with your honda civic and prove your... moreThe fact that you love Samsung does not mean not-Samsung-fans are not correct or that their positions are less valid than yours. Just admit there are Samsung heaters and that's it, learn to live with it, boy. If you like it, then give them a daily good night kiss, period.
in short....S7 is koenigsegg and please stop comparing it with your honda civic and prove your civic better because it has better mileage and low owenership cost. The S7 is for a niche segment of consumers and not meant for everybody. those of you who are calling names on the S7 most of them havent even used it and are comparing their current phones with samsung phones of the previous decade and proving theirs better..(so childish). samsung has evolved by a light year since then . dont curse it just because you cant afford it.
Tommy boy, 21 May 2016Bought the s7 edge. Within the first few days a small spider web crack developed in the rounde... moreI switched from Samsung to Apple. I like Apple better, they run fast and smooth, no slowdowns. I have the iPhone 6S Plus. I like that all iPhones from the 4s to the current 6s models get the same software version and updates on the same day. Samsung specs looks much better on paper, but I was shocked how well the iPhone performs on speed.
Anonymous, 20 May 2016Troll detected. I have a 2 years s5.Ugly like hell but a very very good device.I'm not a samsu... moreI was also using S5 for 2 yrs, but now its broken in an accident. It was the best phone i have ever used
Anonymous, 19 May 2016Wait now. Because after few months there will be super phones with 8GB ram.If that would happens it would had been so a couple of years back but so far it didn't as the "cost" factor, not to manufacturers but to consumers
awesome phone awesome choice , i would suggets u ppl togo ahead with the purchase
Thinking of upgrading from s5 to s7. Apart from better auto focus and stabilisation,is 1080p video capture much better than s5 (which is already very good)?
Livius, 20 May 2016Go back to your shit G2 ! You cleary don't own a S7 or if you do it is a fake ! I am a medium ... more I also upgraded from LG G2 to S7, and can certainly say that the battery life on S7 is worse compared to the G2 and heats rather quickly, as for me its the only flaw on S7 so far, other than that S7 is great device
Y'all better think first before buying s7 and s7 edge... Dont be fool by its over rated specs brah im telling y'all the more features the more trouble y'all get...think about it im serious y'all dont waste your money brahs...
I owned a Galaxy S5 before the S7. The S7 is a lot more beautiful. Still the S5 had a better WIFI connection. My S5 connected to carrier hotspot (FON-network) automatically, the S7 almost never does, even if I manually connect, the captive portail goes away after even being able to enter login/password. When I come home, the S7 regularly stays on 4G and does not 'jump' to the home WIFI, the S5 always flawlessly did...
Anybody has the same experience?
