Its not free, lots of development hours go into the android for compatibility and customization with a device.

All what samsung does is adding a top program over the Android and this is nothing.
and they dont pay much for updating their phones thats why it takes them 6 months to release next version updates to their phone . had they paying for it , you would expect the upgrade rolling out the same day Google releases the next Version of Android.
For the people complaining simply don't buy at launch
You know prices decrease within one month so who cares

I'm pretty sure samsung spends quite a lot of money on researching for new android features.

I never experienced Lags or slow software on any iphone I used.
They work fine . Android is hardware hungry Thats why they need more hardware.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2016but iPhones cost less to make. Apple makes more per iPhone as compared to Samsung.Samsung costs even less to make . and they dont have in house OS.

"The rumor also claims that the devices will only have a single, 32GB storage option as users will have the option to expand the memory via microSD slot."
-??? SD card got nothing to do with them unleashing just 32GB. With such a price not releasing bigger memory would embarrass me, also they released 32GB before, even without SDslot, with them being able to mass produce 128GB memories, it's not an excuse. Also 64GB without SDslot is laughable when people care about if some (16/32GB)-phone support just 32GB sd card or more like 64/128/200... makes me think twice about if such phone is flagship of flagships. :)))
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2016So that'll be around £500/£600 in the UK. Reasonable I guess. https://www.google.com/search?q=700%E2%82%AC+in+gbp&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=guy9VsDlLszHmwGMs6jYDQ

Necromancer, 12 Feb 2016Lumia 950 better than a Galaxy S7/S7 Edge?! Only in dreams.it will be when you have model number 1950 not 950
If microsoft was doing well it would not kickout its employees. No money making no jobs. Why software windows is useless on phones

You are comparing a ball with a computer and that makes no sense. Apple never said it had to pay for ios and they didn't, they created it themselves. Samsung never said it was free to get android on their devices. The workers who update the phones and work on the rom have to get paid too...
No it does not, an iPhone bought for 700GBP will be worth 700GBP a year later I don't think so. Apple does not hold as much value as it used to second hand ,second hand shops are flooded with them in UK. As to Android phones dropping fast that is true,this S7 will drop below 500GBP within 2 months I reckon.
samer1970, 12 Feb 2016Sorry Samsung , too much for a phone.this is yours poor opinion
Yea 800 euro don't worry after 1 month it will cost 700 that is the sad thing with all android phones not like the IPhone that hold it price till the next generation Phone.
