mazdem, 27 Mar 2016You are crazy if my phone decreases by 5 to 6% in a hour that means I would be about 60% charg... moreNo you wouldnt,
6 % in idle is really bad...
Means batterylife in standby is less than 24h...
Means if you surf an hour, watch a video an hour, make a call an hour a day ( standardized battery life) your new samsung wont last over 24h...because of its lousy standby time.
My z1c phone looses 2% per hour in standby, even after 2 years now...
kevin97, 27 Mar 2016Did you take a look at the Exynos 8890 benchmarks ?Yeah, its lousier than snapdragon 820 in everything except multicore
namj, 27 Mar 2016I disabled the aod and edge notification! Basically I'm using the s7 and paid for s7 edge :p .... moreThat is a standby samsung problem. They never tell you about standby drain in samsung advertising or batterytests...
I would have considered it.. good specifications and rumors say it is about to come along with a great camera. Now i have my galaxy s7 and i am more than happy that i didnt wait for the HTC 10 because of its looks. They should have stayed with the m8 but better specs instead.
I loved the Droid DNA. Then I went and bought the Desire 510, worst Android phone I've had. Don't think I'm gonna be buying this phone after shelling out over 200 dollars for a downgrade.

Basically I'm using the s7 and paid for s7 edge :p ... Yes as you said fb drinks a lot of juice but what surprised me is that android system, android os and cell standby combined take upto 30% of the battery and frankly i didn't buy s7e to not use aod and edge notifications .... Wish i had stuck to my first choice s7 :(

And if anything if ya got the Exynos version. I'd root it.
ljames, 27 Mar 2016You obviously never used one. I own the s7 edge
The battery does not live upto the expectations standby is not good when the phone is idle still the battery decreased by 5 to 6% in an hour ... Why? Moto x play lasts twice compared to s7e with both having almost same amount of battery
-The system is not as fluid / reponsive as my old moto x play, just doesn't justify the system has 4 gb ram and latest processor
- camera a big disappointment the image quality doesn't even comes close to my brother's lumia 1020 i just wonder what Nokia could've done with f1.7 / 1.4um when they managed so good with f2.2/ 1.12um pixel size ... Some +ve of s7e : focusing is crazy fast so is post processing you can just go on clicking there is just no lag at all in clicking pics, pro mode is too good better than the lumia 1020
Video is superb in daylight but in room lighting / indoors lots of noise here i think the f1.7 factor should have come in but it doesn't help again the lumia 1020 managed a better low light vide than s7e with noise level kept low and details high
For those buying for camera, 'please don't' it's not that the camera is bad infact it's the best camera in a smartphone but it doesn't justify the price you get it for.
Another phone, HTC, very good. I can say that can compare with Meizu, LG,SONY, OPPO,etc. It's hard to make a decision if want to buy. Is very difficult. It is easy instead, to know what you do not want to buy, Samsung and Apple.
This model of phone, HTC 10, has as its only rival, Pro 6 Meizu, till this moment. It will be interesting to see who will be imposed. However, S7, is topped and will remain, far behind.
MAGIC FOREVER, 26 Mar 2016I must admit, and they do, this phone impressed me. I've passed on my short list, in order to buy.Ya me too, got a worthy successor to the One M8 I've in hand.
ljames, 27 Mar 2016You obviously never used one. I owned one and I sold it off just 3 days after.
S7 Edge = A total disaster.
Not to mention the amount of accidental touches on the edge screen.
Even the phone shop owner don't recommend their customers on getting one.
Now eagerly waiting for HTC M10 which will be the best flagship for 2016.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2016No, more like HTC is comparing that the sound on the bottom firing speaker will be just as lou... moreI would agree with you on that, but if you look at the design of the circles on the earpiece on the m10 leak and the design of the circles on the HTC audio teaser, they're exactly the same. The earpiece on the m7-m9 aren't the same as the teaser.
