Just got my S7 Edge a couple of days back and have to say that this is indeed the best 'overall' phone in the world right now.
Yes, I know people will pick things here are there, but the reality is that this phone is the best 'Jack of all trades' in the market right not, and yet being the 'master' in several things namely:
- Best designed phone, with the curved edges, makes it really unique
- Amazing screen-size to body-size ratio
- Best screen / display
- Best camera for low-light (in good light there are many phones which are good or 'good enough').
- Water / Dust resistant (I live in a dry climate, but why not have it, right?)
- Class leading (or equaling, if you may) performance
- Awesome audio quality with headphones (though the volume could be a tad louder for some people, but not me). However, do note I've got the Exynos version with Wolfson DAC.
- Very good battery life. Perhaps the 3600 mAh will be fined tuned even more with further updates.
IllusioConsciens, 15 Mar 2016this is a real high end model whit 2k super amoled, and great performance. you can compare iPh... moreThis is not a 2K Amoled.
2K is equivalent to a hair above 1080p.
Quad HD is 2.5K.
Battery endurance of 98 hrs! Yesssss!!
Now then - I wonder if anyone has the patience to count how many times the reference to 'Lagwiz' etc is used by commentors of this article, who still believe they're being original, but have yet to try this phone. I'm gonna guesstimate around 325no.
Anyone wanna bet on the troll count?? ;)
USA Snapdragon 820 for others exynos processor. so other country peoples are fool...wont buy this...
AnonD-504676, 15 Mar 2016Tested the phone at Leicester City. Oh my goodness, Touchwiz still lags... When will Samsung... moreReality is that you have never actually tested the phone. Better try to practice your lying skills.
AnonD-504401, 15 Mar 2016That Battery life is incredible!
I cannot wait for your LG G5 review, that's the one I'm mo... moreAs good as the battery life is for each i did expect a little more. Mostly from web browsing especially. Followed by a little more video. Then a smidge more in call.
Though the web browsing mostly.
I guess the SoC is counteracting a bit. However the overall improvement if so is still good.
And i have a good reason. Im comparing to the Note 4's scores in these categories.

That Battery life is incredible!
I cannot wait for your LG G5 review, that's the one I'm most excited about.
thank you GSMARENA! I've been waiting for this review to determine the battery test result and I do agree that battery life are excellent as per your result. Your site is definitely one of the trusted mobile reviewer and unbias site. well done! you give the actual performance without giving any favor to other brand unlike IPhoneArena!!!
Replace TW launcher with Nova
Disable all the Samsung apps
Set animation to 0.5x or off in Developer Settings
Set animation and scroll to Nova or Fast in Nova settings
now it's lag free
Tested the phone at Leicester City. Oh my goodness, Touchwiz still lags...
When will Samsung ever learn?
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2016where you see 2K video? the human eye cannot even see the difference, dude. lolYeah. The onscreen GPU benchmark is a good example for why the QHD screen resolution has no benefit, it is just a waste of GPU performance.

AnonD-509761, 15 Mar 2016Best phone? It can't even beat the iPhone6s performance. You call that best phone? For gimmick... moreCome on? the Galaxy s7 beats the iPhone 6s in performance, multicores and everywhere. iPhone only wins in single core by not much; off course with that poorly resolution of 720 from 5 years ago! hahaha think about it
I'm very satisfied with the battery life of my S7 edge..the best part is Samsung hasn't even released the performance improvement firmware yet...it's only going to get better
