Excellent phone in a nutshell.
*Great battery backup, Best camera available on a smartphone.
*Gaming/Fingerprint/Multi-tasking/Pop-up view works flawlessly and glad to use those.
*Best Display just like it's predecessor.
*Extended Edge features just make your life much more easier.
*Fast charging and wireless charging is one of the best part of my s7 Edge.
**Specially the more curved design is the best part, now it's more easy to hold and use with one hand.
#Using SM-G935F, Exynos Duos Global Version. Loving it. Will obviously reffer to everybody who is looking for a unique yet all-rounder smartphone.
##Cons - No IR Blaster, No Removable Battery(for being water-resistance) and No stereo Speaker.
->But those aren't any major game-changer for me so this is the best Smartphone till date for me.
Overpriced. And I rather buy nexus 6p. But I think nexus 6p is also slightly overpriced too !
Only if xiaomi had good software and were available in my country :(
I wish s7 edge had an google play edition like one m7 and galaxy s4!
My review of s7e
This thing is a beauty to behold!
The edge curve makes it look like you've got something from space ;p
The battery does not live upto the expectations standby is not good when the phone is idle still the battery decreased by 5 to 6% in an hour ... Why? Moto x play lasts twice compared to s7e with both having almost same amount of battery
-The system is not as fluid / reponsive as my old moto x play, just doesn't justify the system has 4 gb ram and latest processor
- camera a big disappointment the image quality doesn't even comes close to my brother's lumia 1020 i just wonder what Nokia could've done with f1.7 / 1.4um when they managed so good with f2.2/ 1.12um pixel size ... Some +ve of s7e : focusing is crazy fast and so is post processing you can just go on clicking there is just no lag at all in clicking pics, pro mode is too good better than the lumia 1020 with shutter speed ranging from 1/24000 to 10 seconds, manual focus incorporates zoom the tech found in sony's
Video is superb in daylight but in room lighting / indoors lots of noise here i think the f1.7 factor should have come in but it doesn't help again the lumia 1020 managed a better low light vide than s7e with noise level kept low and details high
For those buying for camera, 'please don't' it's not that the camera is bad infact camera hardware is top notch f1.7/ 1.4um / 1/2.6" sensot it's the best camera in a smartphone but it doesn't justify the price you get it for, only Samsung to be blamed for not getting it right with perfect hardware
I love this phone. For those saying the curved display is a gimmick....one thing.....bezels.
Battery life is back to what we were getting with larger phones back in 2014, although I've yet to compare it with my HTC One M8 which lasted for 2-3 days.
I questioned GSM Arena's decision to rate the S5 higher than the M8, because apart from the camera, that one was so good. And still is, but this phone is probably the best I've owned.
What DID surprise me was just how we are now getting advances in Smartphone tech which are so little compared to 2 years ago. Yes this phone is great, but the gap is getting smaller, and it's now beginning to feel like Android phones have reached their peak.
My only disappointments are with the mono speaker and lack of FM Radio, which is still very relevant.
I can just say the geegbench 3 results you guys have posted there, are kind of wrong. Look at their official website. The iphone 6s is faster than the s6 in multi core performance but slower than ghe s7. The s6 edge has an average multicore result of 4520 not 5095. and the edge+ has around 4100 not 5100.

Isn't it?
Kyle K., 21 Mar 2016I am currently using the phone and get about the same with about the same pattern.
Perhaps ... moreIt might be a combination of all the stuff you mentioned :) But a comparable test is nice! Props on that.
I searched some other reviews and most people get the same battery life I have with comparable usage and even worse for heavy use (duh xD). So it might just be normal.
olaivo, 21 Mar 2016Thanks Kyle!
That's clear, but it still makes me wonder why I don't even get close to 4 day... moreI am currently using the phone and get about the same with about the same pattern.
Perhaps it's the less than perfect network coverage that drains your battery, or an app that has huge background activity (Facebook, I am looking at you), or/and the Wi-Fi coverage may be poor. The location services are a battery drainer, too. LTE drains the battery as well.
Maybe you have lots of accounts to sync, too, I don't know. Nobody can out the same result as we do, because of the setup we use - it's specific just to our office. The idea is to be the same for all devices, so the scores to be comparable.
You can check what drains your battery (besides the screen) the most in the Battery options and see what you can do about it.

That's clear, but it still makes me wonder why I don't even get close to 4 days with the "same" usage pattern. Like I said: max. of 4 days.

Now then - I wonder if anyone has... moreHmm, perhaps a little less than 50% of the total comments posted here, most if not all of them; are the insecure Google/Apple fanboys, as folks with the crabby person, having crab mentality! You know what? I have a great pathos on you… especially to the Apple fans, who are very much trying out of there utmost hardest, just to be able to somewhat, make a troll on Samsung! iPhone 6s; even the larger 6s+ will certainly be having a very a great time defeating Samsung's A7, much-much-more with the A9 2016, and you still have the guts to compare them with the S7 much-more with the S7-Edge? I mean come on! Samsung detractors, are you really gonna dare?
olaivo, 21 Mar 201696 HOURS?!!!! WTF! That is 4 days! That is bullshit... I would like to know more about what yo... more96 hours - that's the time you will get if you use the S7 edge for 1 hour 3G talk, 1 hour video playback, and 1 hour web browsing in each 24 hour bracket.
The standby test: hooked up on 3G network with maximum coverage, data enabled. Wi-Fi connected to 2.4GHz network - full bars. All battery saving options are off. Fingerprint scanner is configured. Location is off. - This is the most important test you should know about and it is described in the link we provide by the end of each battery life section.
96 hours is the result WITHOUT Always-on screen or Edge functionality. With Always on the rating is 67 hours, and with AOD and Edge = 60 hours.
If you need more information - it's in the review battery chapter.
Hope this helps.
96 HOURS?!!!! WTF! That is 4 days! That is bullshit... I would like to know more about what you guys disabled, did you use bluetooth / wifi / whatever / etcetera. Because I get 3 days max with the same useage time as in your test.
