Free of bloatware? Maybe but you have pre-installed 2 notition apps, 2 browsers, 2 gallery apps, 2 music players, 2 app store apps, facebook, whatsapp, Skype and so on.
I don't use some of these apps like facebook or Samsung app store so it is bloatware to me because you can't delete it, only hide it.
No wonder Android uses around 10gb on the S7 (in Europe carrier-free version)

Where this is stated in the end of the article: Clearly Android apps are able to take advantage of multi-core processors and big.LITTLE allows the scheduler to pick the best core combination for the current workload. If you still hear people saying things like 'but a smartphone doesn't need 8 cores' then just throw your hands-up in despair, as it means they don't understand Heterogeneous Multi-Processing and they don't understand that big.LITTLE is about power efficiency and not overall performance.

Background app refresh.... still no control over it on android
P.S. But this is not a thread for such a discusion... I've just tried to stop you bashing iOS for the sake of how good the S7 is
Christian, 13 Mar 2016Its common knowledge from people who never owned or used iOS.Except I do own a device with iOS 9 lying around my room somewhere. I used to use it as a coaster but its not even good at that.
Its common knowledge to anyone who isn't tech illiterate. There has been no good, original features out of an iOS update that don't already exist on android.
Ranjit123, 13 Mar 2016I would still go with iphone 6s plus than this phone .......But the iPhone 6 has barely got a res over 720p?
yes! lets add everything to a phone that a consumer needs and wants and never buy anything else from that company to support! amazing! hopefully once that happens and we have the ultimate phone, we become the phone instead!
LOVE IT! lets bash and have them put everything in the phone like its a modular.
Why the Mate 8 with Kirin 950 was not included. Yes Mate 8 is a phablet but it would be interesting to have 2 of the lastest high end chipsets head to head
Tibin Thomas, 13 Mar 2016This is funny,Its common knowledge that iOS is trying to introduce more features with every new update, features that have been in android since years ago.
For example, every feature in ios9.
Tibin Thomas, 13 Mar 2016That all depends on the user. And you mean by media consumption is the illegal things you down... moreWell no, that isn't what I meant by media consumption. But if you're stuck in a walled garden I can understand why you're clueless. ;-)
Grey1213, 12 Mar 2016That's why I mentioned vulkan. When games start using it multicore performance will become far... moreThat all depends on the user. And you mean by media consumption is the illegal things you download in the internet hmm yea you really need android.
Dno, 13 Mar 2016do you even read the review? please look at battery life section.I own a Galaxy S7 and the review is spot on on this, always on consumed WAY MORE than 1% per day, very close to that 1% in an hour, but not as much I would say.
