They could've added 0.5mm or 1mm thickness so they could have more room to work with battery size.
mineisbigbutshort, 22 Feb 2016It's a matter of preferences. I've seen severe burn in on Samsung Phones, yet mine is working ... moreI guess burn-in can happen if you leave a phone on 24/7 at 100% brightness or if the display isn't of good quality (and I've heard of it happening on Nokia's Windows phones with Amoled too) or simply bad luck, but in this case it's just a few pixels that move their position downwards by a few pixels every minute, so it's not like the phone is using the same ones all the time - at least I hope Samsung did it that way too. This feature shouldn't cause any burn-in. As for Nokia's implementation just do an image search for "Nokia sleeping screen" and you'll get the idea. Anyway, if you get one of these phones, looks like a good choice to me. And the feature should probably be easy to turn off.
MdN8, 22 Feb 2016Why not? I have this feature on my Nokia N8, it's a 2010 phone (I've had mine for almost 3 yea... moreIt's a matter of preferences. I've seen severe burn in on Samsung Phones, yet mine is working fine. The S7 duo is on my wanted list but i would probably turn the always-on-feature off anyway. I haven't seen or use N8 so i don't know how well that feature fare on your phone, but, good for you man.
reddwarf, 21 Feb 2016Finally Galaxy S which is worth to buy. S6 was a mistake.agree
Nitharjan, 21 Feb 2016Nice but not slim , don't have 8MP front camara and iris sencer , laser focus and smile detectionLaser focus? For what? S7 have Dual Pixel technology which four times faster than PDAF
Please stop this game, wanted for u A 2 year Rest s6 & s7 what's change?
mineisbigbutshort, 21 Feb 2016Amoled screens with always on feature is a big no. Still a beautiful beast, though.Why not? I have this feature on my Nokia N8, it's a 2010 phone (I've had mine for almost 3 years), the display still looks almost as good as new. I can always see the time (it turns off when in pocket through proximity sensor so it's not always on), I know if I have missed calls or messages, and I see where my phone is in the dark. Good job Samsung for finally bringing this feature.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Haha, that Always On display will make the AMOLED screen to burn-in even faster.My Moto X 1gen not burned the AMOLED screen with more than 2 years.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Can anyone explain this to me, why? I dont know much about amoled, only that black pixels are ... moreYou could just go to Samsung Store and check their displayed product. Their latest product, Galaxy S6 and Note 5 still suffers from screen burn in when you put on a still images/screen with 100% brightness at 24/7 always on screen. I don't know why some lifeless Samsung fanboy below commenting to see display quality on another tech site. It's not about quality, it's about durability. Believe your own eyes. Samsung's amoled display is inarguably the best screen until today. I use a Note 5 from 3 months ago and its screen still doing great, doesn't suffer from screen burn-in. But hey, their engineers probably has figured out something to prevent the S7 duo from that.
Levy, 21 Feb 2016Hoho, I think Samsung engineer probably know that and made sure it won't happen.The always on display are always moving on different quadrants of the screen preventing burn-in issues.
No USB 3.0 and 12 megapixels ?
So they drive the quality down when releasing new high-end phones these days ?
How retarded are these strategies ?
Call me when you get the features up and a removable battery.
Really disappointed with Samsung on this one.
And I have been using Samsung phones for the last 14 years !
Really, that's it? I am looking forward to G5 stealing sales from S7!
anonymous, 22 Feb 2016samsung s7 waterproof? this would be iphones worst nightmareLol. Agree
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Can anyone explain this to me, why? I dont know much about amoled, only that black pixels are ... moreNothing to explain about a troll post, move on. If you want to check about display quality, then go to DisplayMate. No one cares about what some lifeless troll is saying.
Lg come up with great innovation but ugly design. And there are samsung with superb perfomance and design but no innovation. I dont know which one is better
Nitharjan, 21 Feb 2016Nice but not slim , don't have 8MP front camara and iris sencer , laser focus and smile detectionSlim, 7.9mm is not slim for you, you want 1mm thick phone.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Haha, that Always On display will make the AMOLED screen to burn-in even faster.I had a Nokia N8 for several years with amoled screen with allways on notification screen and nothing ever burned on to it.
Why don't we see iPhone scores in benchmark tests for comparison purposes?
