Thought I'd share my experience and wait for the backlash.
I have received my Galaxy S7 Edge at the beginning of the week and am now returning for a refund. How Samsung have had the nerve to release this phone when it has so many bugs is beyond belief, especially considering the issues with the S6. The S7 has a number of common features with the S6, it runs very hot, it crashes, it freezes and requires restarting, the touchwiz interface is poor. Where the S7 really excels is the camera and SD card support. I am prepared to accept I have received a duff phone however the S7 Edge i had kept crashing when I used the camera, the SD card also kept causing the phone to crash and even after a hard reset and factory restore, the phone constantly redirected the card and formatted. this resulted in photos being lost one two occasions (i stopped using the card after the second time). At least my Note 4 was stable and managed the extra storage effectively and without problem.
Samsung have now lost me forever to Apple. I run two phones and have usually had something from Samsung and apple, my experience is that the apple product, whilst not as technologically advanced is far superior. The phones are more stable and I find the user interface more intuitive and efficient to use. I also find the camera on the iPhone 6s to produce better quality photos than the S7 in terms of colour balance and noise in low light. Critically, the iPhone doesn't keep deleting my photos and crashing.
As I have said, I could have been unlucky but surfing the reviews online suggests I am not an isolated case. For anyone considering the S7 I would suggest you do your research before you take the plunge and don't listen to the overly keen sales staff who seem to be pushing the S7 above anything else.
Hades, 03 Jan 2016Apple will sue Sony, because apple also claims that they are the 1st for waterproofing lol.Just wait for I-diots to start say i7 is better because it's the 1st waterproof phone etc.
Same thing happened with i6 and 4k recording.. something that even android midrangers do by now. But it's like I-diots don't believe that other phones exist!!

This is just a rumour and you fans (android and ios) already bashing each other
Get real life you all

Brian3112, 30 Dec 2015agreed 6, 6s ugly designI agree, even owning both iPhones. Hopefully the next iPhone will look better.
SG N5, 30 Dec 2015Well...u think colour options as features of the phone...great feature infact...upto now I tho... moreGreat, one out of three times in my post i said features without adding "options/" on it and you take it literally to attack only that part of the comment, while you ignore everything else. Do you have nothing intelligent to defend your samsung gods except just one word missing, while the whole point of my comment is the general point and not one word?
Brian3112, 30 Dec 2015agreed 6, 6s ugly design6, 6s, best looking phones ever!
so we are gonna get some funky new marketing term no doubt as per the apple PR train to sell the so called NEXT thing in mobile technology water resistance even though its old news for the rest of the mobile world, they shall call it ingress proof or iProof for short perhaps
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2015Funny how iBoys bring up Android on Apple news.funny how samsung fanboys bring android to defend samsung instead of brining tizen .. lol
read my post again and i clearly mentioned samsung and not android ( well this is expected from samsung fanboys )
Mkdc, 29 Dec 2015Well, basically, according to samsung devotees, samsung did release like 37 years ago many of ... morelike how apple trolled samsung ;-)
apple filed "Tap to connect" patent intentionally to troll samsung , and samsung really implemented it..
Showoff, 30 Dec 2015Agreed. iPhone 5 and 5s design was much better. Apple is just making their phone ugly nowadays.agreed 6, 6s ugly design

Mello, 30 Dec 2015It's called outsourcing your production. It lessens manufacturing overhead (maintaining factor... moreWell as a business grad i know what outsourcing is and i know how cost saving is done and how companies go for make or buy options and etc. I was just giving it a sense of humour and apart from Samsung, every OEM does that, there is no problem in it but asking a 500% profit is! But then yes lets call it business and everything becomes fair because when stupid people make queues to throw thousands of dollars on a nearly identical both in body and spec'd phone then why would anyone care!
