Awesome review. Glad to see the 3 negatives are something I didn't even consider and i'm sure 99% of folks don't either. Good stuff!
Tann Hauser, 14 Mar 2016This is S6 repacked, with added waterproof and sd card
Camera stayed the same quality, but lo... moreFunny this....it's not in any way a Sony related article and yet here you are peddling your BS Tann......well wonders never cease.
In any event, it's very hypocritical of you to label the S7 as nothing more than a repacked S6. After all your a Sony nut, and iteration has been Sony's principal smartphone philosophy for several years now....
Just as much (or just as little) has changed between the S6 and S7, as did between the Z3 and Z5 (and that had the Z3+ in between) yet you never seemed to have a problem with iteration in the Sony camp....hmmm...
Hypocrisy is definitely your thing Tann.
RAM 4GB. Free 700mb+!? No thanks
I have 2GB and still have 900MB+ free with 99 open Chrome tabs, + 15 open apps everyday :D
mir, 14 Mar 2016You obviously don't know what you're talking about.And somehow you know what you are talking about?
GSMA own observation :
"Â›The all-new 12MP still camera is capable of near-instant focus thanks to its dual-pixel technology. Images are detailed, dynamic range and colors are good, and in terms of image quality it's definitely an improvement over the S6's already excellent shooter."
Download the full size samples. Samsung sensor in the S7 performs better than the Sony sensor in the S7 (whichever variant you happen to get with your S7).
Sony sensor - washed out look is very evident in set 1 and 3. Purple fringes on vertical edges of the doors in the corridor in set 2... still far better quality though than what a Z5 can pull off (compare for yourself using the iso 12233 test)
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016Battery will get worse. Batteries degrade with time...Very aware of that, not sure why you're commenting on that? Random and quite negative of you.
Anne, 14 Mar 2016Psst Touchwiz started on S5.
Don't bother arguing with an iFan. Apple extremists, the iHerd, ... moreLol, you misunderstood my English.. Touchwiz started officially with the Galaxy S1, which I still have and it works.
I'll rephrase my sentence, the Touchwiz that is in the Galaxy S6 (and not the versions before S6) is excellent. I have the S5 also, my wife uses it now, and while it's a great phone, TouchWiz wasn't as good as the one on S6, 5.1.1.
AnonD-292864, 14 Mar 2016Any camera with more resolution will be too big and thick and it would ruin the design of the ... moreEveryone used 13mp so no one wanted that low res. Now difference is less with 23 vs 12mp, because just a few use 38mp. Well wait till sony/microsoft flagship. Phones can be made even with bigger bumps, it's no big problem as the result matters. With this in mind I hope sony will unveil their bended sensors soon.
AnonD-292864, 14 Mar 2016Any camera with more resolution will be too big and thick and it would ruin the design of the ... moreFor the same 1.4um at 16mp would have been a negligible size difference.
Same for larger um on 12mp.
And htc made 4 at first because it was new.
And stuck with it because they were fools or lacked the abilities to make/find better.
Especially with how much thicker the one devices have been there was more than enough room for an increase
vrvly, 14 Mar 2016They could increase low light performance with their white pixels tech while getting more - 20... moreAny camera with more resolution will be too big and thick and it would ruin the design of the phone. Remember HTC ? They stayed 4 "UltraPixels". They couldn't make 13 "UltraPixel" camera.
AnonD-436971, 13 Mar 2016I would still go with iphone 6s plus than this phone .......dont come here then stay in that section. Its sammy lovers den not iherd club.
aleluya somebody that says it, i changed my iphone 6s plus for my lgg4 because of the camera and in the camera because of the fucking black lines, i love 16,9 photos.
and i wanted a 7 edge, but 9 megapixel 16,9 photos ?
ITS A JOKE
The S7 produces better images overall than the S6. In the S7 they are slightly cleaner (much more so in low light), have a bit better colour and have a fair amount more detail the closer you get to the edge of the frame. Would have been even better if it came equipped with the Samsung sensor.
