Let's wait and see, not long to go.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2016PFFFUUUUUUUU finally, thanks for the clarification. We were all eagerly waiting for your react... moreLovin the sarcasm! Haha!
Personally - any return of practical features like waterproofing on a flagship should be welcome - improves competition and encourages innovation.
I can take our leave having an SD card.
How about a flagship that doesn't require one of those horrible cases to protect it from the inevitable drops. Now that WOULD be progress!!
It will be better than buying a waterproof case that's the size of a volkswagon......
This actually makes me happy, Samsung is moving forward faster than crapple, finally they have left behind the copy, wannabe thing, the s6 is light years ahead of the iphone 6 even the 6s, and now will be even further, I jus thope they put front facing speakers and im sold on the galaxy s8, currently my next phone will be a xperia z5 or z5+, because sadly no one else offers the same ammount of good features in a single package like Sony.

Waterproof had exist in S series since Galaxy S4 Active. Don't forget S5 Active and S6 Active. There are also the Galaxy Xcover series which have 3 generation already. Samsung even have waterproof tablet, Galaxy Tab Active which also surprisingly one of the few tablet in the world that have removable battery.
The S7 mono speaker must be very weak, because samsung unfamiliar doing the waterproof phones, they only do waterproof for S5 and S7, they still learn how to swim. Sony is leading the waterproof tech for mobile phones.
redhotsonic, 09 Feb 2016"Best audio seen"? lol, I think you meant "heard" =PThe chip and the numbers(dB) is what we SEE. Heard? No one ever heard it yet because it was just a plan and there were no S7 back then. The only sample you can hear is from Sony.
Skyfall., 09 Feb 2016So far all discussions shall be on rumors about series S7. As design this phone look trivial.... moreThe same thing i've noticed. Rumors concerning the this phone S7,will only be a big failure begin to be true.
Edy1, 09 Feb 2016Look good? Check. Great screen? Check. Great CPU? Check. ... ...
but sound ? speakers ? ... moreAren't there rumors about the improve sound quality. A new report out of Korea suggests Samsung is readying the SABRE 9018AQ2M chip from ESS Technology that brings with it the best audio seen in a smartphone.
The chip features a a 32-bit mobile audio DAC, has 129 dB signal to noise ratio and supports formats such as DSD - the super audio format favoured by Sony. This means you'll get an as-near-to-dammit listening experience as listening to analogue, but while streaming audio over the internet.
And the picture shown is not real S7.

I have my Z3 compact for 1.5 years and I am absolutely happy with it. I can't say a lot about Samsung. The last one I had was the Note 2 and that was a great phone. It never disappointed me. No lagging, no nothing. I only got rid off it because I got annoyed by the size of it so I went for the Z3C.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2016Done with the self-satisfication and prejudice? Good. Sonys absolutely suck in terms of reliab... moreLet me tell you some things about Samsung devices, first of all the Galaxy S4 was my last after that I promise no more Samsung joke. The S4 was everything but a phone. 3 seconds to open contacts, 3 seconds to open phone keyboard and the worst sVoice socks and it is impossible to use. I saw that some of this was improved on recent models like S5 and S6 but not on sVoice. I don't mind stuff like water resistant or so on I only want a phone for work with and Samsung does not do that anymore. LG too! I found good staff on Motorola that has a good vocal assistant and phone response. (Nokia use to do good phones too before Microsoft) finally I'm with iPhone that is a good phone where I meant to make calls and work with especially when I drive. That's it.
Rasputin, 09 Feb 2016In fact it was wrong interpretation.They removed hardly water from phone..:) This is truth.You're right. Looking more closely at the picture, i can see how ...water comes out of the phone. ..:)))
So far all discussions shall be on rumors about series S7.
As design this phone look trivial.
As level equipment is the average.Just the CPU is very good, if you use the Snapdragon.
I suggest just pay attention to the next actually. Why Samsung started to decrease price its phones ?
Lest and they realized this phone not have a success as other phones exiting the market by other companies?
Octa stand for display assembly, hrm not sure but good to see s7 is going to be waterproof, since water is the #1 issue this days on smartphone problems
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2016Done with the self-satisfication and prejudice? Good. Sonys absolutely suck in terms of reliab... moreWell said, I agree with you. I am also into cell phone business and I have tried all brands of phones and different models, Everytime I use another brand, after a few weeks, I always come back to the galaxy s line.

Samsung offers bad devices at an unacceptable Price just like Apple (Samsung devices are Apple copycats in every aspect). TouchWiz is ugly. I counted 15 (!!!) bloatware-apps on my brother's S6! Samsung has great Performance though, but in Long time use, the phone gets as hot as my cooker! Bad battery endurance (after 4 months of use it was eventually replaced). And definetly it's not an Allrounder. It's TRASH at an unacceptable Price.
I agree that HTC wasn't better, but SONY!! User "Fade..." was absolutely right! Sony is one of the most reliable manufacturers around! I had a Z3 and it worked well. My Sister has a Z5 and it works well. AND they get frequent Software updates! A Thing that Samsung is bad at. My brother's S6 is stuck on android 5.0.1 and it didn't even get the STAGEFRIGHT-FIX is out for AGES now!
So stop protecting your Piece of plastic you've bought for $700!!
