While some people are coming here comparing the S7 Edge to less efficient devices like the G5, here's an interesting chart of the S7 Edge I've tabulated for 7 cycles. This is after over a month of use, and I have only started tabulating last week to find out if the upcoming Note 6 will stand to be my next upgrade since it is likely to have very similar battery specs and consumption: http://flic.kr/p/GUHZgE
Averaging 15.5 hours from unplugging in the morning till coming home, regular users can expect to consume some 70% of the battery, with some 5 hours of Screen On Time (SOT), with casual LESS graphic intense games and some YouTube watching, and just below 1GB worth of data used with mostly through wifi. This is of course not using it as a hotspot, or very heavy graphic games.
Taking a calculated projection till you completely deplete the battery, it can reach almost 24 hours. If you calculate only using 80% of the battery, you can have some 19 hours of battery standby without totally going deep discharging (that's bad for the battery). It is also possible to get 8 to 10 hours SOT if you will going use it going to less than 20% of the battery. But hey, you can still go Ultra Power Saving mode if you need.
I personally sometimes go over 4GB and use my device as a wifi hotspot, and I have to carry a power pack or charger to cope, if I was to just use the S7 Edge with its sealed battery. I'm still in favor with a removable battery system because you can just swap the battery even within a minute.
itumi, 20 May 2016LG G5 can have 5,600mAh or more battery juice with its removable battery vs non removable 3600... moreI wonder what LG G5 what battery can "can have 5,600mAh or more battery juice". I don't think Zerolemon has made one yet. Regardless of it having removable battery, G5 has less efficient battery stamina per charge.
ijaz.ali, 19 May 2016man that's a lot of waiting time, I can't live without a flagship smartphone until that.Go for LG G5, it is better.

Metal unibody is better than fingerprint magnet glass phone that you will hide under a plastic cover.
8MP front cam vs 5Mp front cam.
Infrared port vs no infrared port.
USB type-C 1.0 reversible connector vs the primitive micro USB that you need to orient every time you plug in.
FM radio vs no FM radio.
Fast battery charging: 83% in 30 min. vs fast battery charging: 60% in 30 min.
You made me laugh so hard.
I don't have time to argue with a no brainer about smartphone. BYE!
Using Samsung Internet Browser, I liked 'secret mode' feature.
Open the browser-click the Taps (at the right bottom) and enble secret.

Check some videos on youtube, when they took out sim tray, in single sim, it has only SD card tray, not hybrid tray. Also some reviewers mentioned that depending on ur regions , you can get dual sims. So before u talked me back, watch n learn .... goodluck using ur edge. I got mine with 770usd.
I bought an S7 Edge dual-sim unlocked phone before realizing that Sprint doesn't support it.
Is a dual-sim phone usable in the U.S.?
If so, what carriers support it?
itumi, 19 May 2016Wait for S8 because this phone is a downgrade from S6 Edge +.According to you, S7 Edge is a downgrade compared to the S6 Edge Plus. The S7 Edge as a "downgrade" has bigger battery, better camera sensor, water-resistance, and MEMORY EXPANSION.
I'm really sure you don't know what you're talking about.

Prices have dropped drastically by 200$, the only curse on samsung! within two months. We are hardest hit,upon resale maximum loss. Got it for 850$ Titanium
Ranjit746 , 19 May 2016Who's best between LG G5 And Samsung s6 or s7 edge LG G5 without a shadow of a doubt
ijaz.ali, 19 May 2016I lost my s6 edge plus, should I buy s6 edge + again or go for s7 edge ?Wait for S8 because this phone is a downgrade from S6 Edge +.
PAKYOO, 18 May 2016LOL. You're funny man. What are your basis?
YOu do not even know what you're talking. Maybe... moreYou are right, I live in the desert and water resistant is useless feature.
Even in the jungle, you don't need water resistant phone, you can just put it inside a plastic bag when it rains. Or better inside a "rubber", I will not believe you if you say you don't have a "rubber" protection inside your wallet right now. LOL!
the wireless charging, dust proof and water resist are big sale for the phone, it is too bad i can't afford it currently but am gonna have it at the end
I lost my s6 edge plus, should I buy s6 edge + again or go for s7 edge ?
baba, 19 May 2016which one is good, dual sim or single sim in samsung 7 edge Depends on ur usage and need. Some people need 2 sims while some don't. But both dual and single sim versions are flagships.... if u don't have 2 sims, u can put SD card instead of 2nd sim card. i m using dual sim version and it is very convenient to use.
