In the world of bussines is always said that 1 dissatisfied customer means losing hundreds or thousands of potential customers because of bad image they get from that one customer who told his/her friends that the product was bad... then a percentage of them told their friends that the same product was bad (even if they hadn't used it, just for that bad review) and so on.
So... they just opted for staying safe by no using that "Risky feature".

There is a rumor says that Galaxy S7
Will be cheaper than Galway S6 10% !!!
Samsung disappointed me over and over again .
-No slot for SD card
-No water resistant
-No removiable battery
I'm still with note 3 and no doubt about it
Samsung you are pushing me to by an iPhone
Go Big or Google home

I didn't like only one thing about it. It's not water resistant. Even better if the phone had water resistant protection.
Kiwi_downunder , 15 Jan 2016Wow GSM just educated guesses on a phone not out for 6 weeks at least. Also a 12Mp camera is... moreif samsung improve camera 16 mp or more in samsung galaxy s7 then i am purchase it and it attract more customers but if it is 12mp then lg g5 , htc10, huawei mate 8 , sony xperia z6 is better than it and many companies available in market who prodive at least 13mp which higher then 12mp and if sensor is more then other companies also improve it with camera mp
Wow GSM just educated guesses on a phone not out for 6 weeks at least.
Also a 12Mp camera is perfectly requited. Squashing too many pixels in a tiny sensor you get too much noise so why would you want a 25mp sensor ? Do you intend to print 1 x 1 x 1m pictures ? Remember bigger pixels give you better image quality. The great megapixel con LOL.
Why i won't buy S7
1) no water/dust resistance
2) no expansion card
3) no replaceable battery - I replaced my current one for 10$ and gave me 2 more years of life
4) they will probably continue with the anti consumer policy of regional locking. The only company that does that.
5) too much bloatware, every update you have to uninstall it again.
6) The company is constantly late in it's update and stop supports after two years. so on the s3 i am stuck with 4.3
the only pro for samsung is the s3 is still kicking after 3.5 years and lot's of abuse
I have a samsung S6 active. Great phone : the battery is 3500 mAH and it last from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. using it. The phone is water proof,dust proof and shock proof. But it is only made for AT&T and you can buy it only in USA......since I live in Europe I had to ask an american friend of mine to get one for me.
But for sure the S6 Active is the phone to get right now.
Let's hope Samsung will make S7 with a long lasting battery, waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. Then if the camera will be better than S6 it would be nice, but a phone is made to make phone calls, to read emails and to use the web, if you guys want to make great pictures.....well buy a camera!

But let's hope it's just a silly rumor and they will stick to 16 at least...if the 3000mAh and 3600mAh on the Edge is true tho, i might leave LG and go to Samsung for that alone...a well optimized S7 Edge with 3600 will be a beast!!
SID, 14 Jan 2016I had heard about Samsung Galaxy s7 will feature 12 mega pixel camera...It will only reduce it... morei am big fun of samsung and also use galaxy s5 and interested in buy samsung galaxy s7 but i heard that its camera is less than samsung galaxy s6 which 16mp and in samsung galaxy s7 it is just 12mp and lens also less than samsung galaxy s6 if it is true then me never buy it is because if it has 12mp then sony xperia z5 and sony upcoming phone sony xperia z6 is better than and lg g6 and htc 10 and microsoft phones give larger camera as compare to samsung galaxy s7
I had heard about Samsung Galaxy s7 will feature 12 mega pixel camera...It will only reduce its sales.....How can a company reduce its specs....If they wanna improve on low light conditions, they can also do that on the same 16 megapixel camera...If the samsung will reduce its megapixel count, it will be not good for them in terms of sales..
I have Samsung S5 and i haven't reason change it for higher series. The best what Samsung removed from their phones is waterproof.
