K.Ivanov, 28 Feb 2017..and how you proceed ? I hope not to see any scratches on device after the repair... Never us... moreWell i waiting for Note 7 which I didn't like from day one. But by mid October the phone was dying. I was forced to trad it with S7 Edge. I don't like but no other options.waiting for Note 8
I am waiting for S8 seriously cus I believe it will truly be the best phone 2017. Well Note 8 will come in the middle of the year and might be greater. Mate 10 too could contest seriously.
I do not think anything is too much on this phone. It fell and broke.

If apple don't copy Samsung and Android hard enough and use Samsung parts this time...they're finished.

How is this the best?
It lags like hell, you could even try any game from the play store and see that it barely runs at the lowest settings.
The glass back cracks way too easly, as seen in the knife tests on YouTube.
You could drop it, even from pocket level on a wooden floor and the display under the glass will shatter. No Uh-Oh Protection.
Doesnt have an IR Blaster anymore.
The camera isnt that great. You dont get too much detail with only 12MP.
The speaker is extremelly muffled and distorted. It just sounds bad. And although somebody on XDA made a mod that allows playback through both speakers, Samsung didnt bother enough to do that by themselves. And ofc if you want to do that, you will trip the eFuse, resulting in a voided warranty.
Great display with that awesome outdoors mode for even more brightness in direct sunlight (although, the mid range J series already have the outdoors mode in the status bar as a toggle, which is way more convenient than only being active in direct sunlight. I like to use outdoors mode indoors too because it just looks very good. This is only a personal preference.)
SD Slot, Dual Sim version, OTG (although no more MHL/HDMI, which is inconvenient because miracast has a small delay)... Yeah... And that's all i can say good about it.
The UI is good, but it would be better if it wasnt that laggy. It has some really cool features tho, like the always on display and other stuff.
.alpha, 28 Feb 2017You know Samsung paid for the honor just like they pay celebrities to bring Samsung phones to ... moreTrue, anything bs hollywood makes is number. That is why they have the Oscar show to award their boring trends, and people with no brains bought in to that. Fyi, the reason why Samsung and Apple are so popular is because both companies are monopolized by Caucasian.
To anyone trying to spew hate in this. The S7 models are so good that Samsung increased their sales pretty substantially despite the Note7 fiasco. Unlike that fruity toy company who's gone into full panic mode and is about to go from model number 6 through 7 to 10 within little over half a year in a desperate attempt to stop their plummeting sales.

You know Samsung paid for the honor just like they pay celebrities to bring Samsung phones to The Oscars and athletes to the Olympic ceremony.
Had bad luck to pay £640 for "THE BEST" S7 Edge before 4 months and now it's back in the store for warranty repair(device freezing and reboot itself) ...
AKI 121, 28 Feb 2017Good for you man. Mine one lagged. By the way, I am an Android fanboywhat are you saying?? i bought the 64 gig variant? what about you?? Infact i got tired of samsung when my galaxy S5 started laging within 6 months, horrible experience, i moved back to apple, but it was getting too boring, and then somebody said, s6 is a huge step up, so i went.. its 2 year old now, and far from laggy.. then again I ddint hog it up with 100 apps, but i play a lot of games like.. coc, order and chaos.. they are pretty rough on internals, but still very very satisfied with s6 and s7.. infact s7 heats up a little more than s6 while gaming.. i have the exynos s7
S7 edge was indeed the best smartphone of 2016. The OnePlus 3T was a close second IMO.
Remember when MWC 2016 closed and the LG G5 was adjudged the best. Well, ultimately perfect execution triumphed over an impractical additional extras. Ah, things really change over time don't they?
leo R, 28 Feb 2017When a smartphone lags, it is not always due to smartphone's fault. Some users are simply NOT ... moreExactly. They say the best camera is the photographer. If you want the best user experience, it also depends on the user.
Congrats to the S7 edge but it basically won by default. The ill-fated Note7 should've won since it was basically the S7 edge on steroids. I really wouldn't get the S7 edge now because it lacks USB-C which the Note7 had.
That old standard should be phased out and I prefer to jump into the USB-C sooner. I like how it is irreversible and should plug into many more devices. Even the iPhone 8 (or X) will get USB-C. No need to switch around with adapter attached to a power bank.
