"The Galaxy S7 edge is easily the best Android phablet right now" this part of review made my day, thanks GSMArena

But s7 edge is a 2160p AMOLED force touch high end premiun phone, ip8 water resintance, in his class have the best performance and gpu.
and s7 edge isnt ugly.

S7 beats 6S plus in multi core performance, and 6S plus beats S7 in GPU performance. Now, if I needed to pick 2 out of 3, I know which 2 I would pick. Single core performance is more important for day to day operation and most of the apps most people use on a daily basis. And I am sure I dont need to explain why GPU would be good. As I said before, the difference is not so important, as both are extremely quick phones, but it is what it is

Gosh, that was easy. I see why you like it.

Single core and graphics stronger in iPhone 6S plus, with iPhone 7 to come this year. Samsung are a little behind in terms of performance, but the real world difference will be nothing. Performance of iOS vs Android will show more of a difference on performance and lag of the devices
Awesome battery life, camera and performance... now bring on the NOTE 6!! :-)
hallyshit, 18 Mar 2016 Battery Here is a review what version of 98 hours? exynos8890? SD820?98 hours is exynos version while s820 got worse battery life. Typical snapdragon.

I have S7 and S7 edge live demo in my store. What I noticed is phones get really hot after few minutes of game play or video chat. Plus there's lag on touch wiz. I love camera, design And vr on S7 edge, but couldn't care less for edge screen, it's a gimmick. I would touch it by mistake with my hand fat. Battery charged up to 70% then stopped completely. I know it might me coz it's just demo unit, but Sammy had history of similar issues. They are costly devices, yet battery life is same as my Huawei Mate 7 when you play games on the phone or watch video. Last part about battery I might be wrong tho.
S6 edge has poor signal, Google it. I wonder what's the case with new S7 edge. It's still to early to tell. I'm surprised it didn't blow up online. We sold 3 S6 edge and each of them had shit signal in comparison to s6 or so.
Let me know you thoughts guys.

And you don't know which one slows down first.
Plus most speed tests are showing the the exynos to perform noticeably better in most tasks.
AnonD-367917, 18 Mar 2016On single core the iDevices bench high due to the strong capability of their cores.
IDevices ... moreNo. IPhone specifically focuses on single core more than multi tasking.
And obviously they could be doing a lot better comparing their dual cores to quads and eight cores that come close in songle core.
Yet the whole point of their large and oh so anazing dual core set up is to shine in single core. But they really only have a tiny lead.
And just being limited does not make them supremely optimized. If they were that well optimized then why have they led in app crashes for years by a huge margin, despite their supposedly optimizing and supreme single core are out pacef in speed tests in app opening and such, and make their couple year old phones lag more with simple suposed optimized light updates. And the two year old devices cant even get the full update.
Blunder, 15 Mar 2016The iPhone is better at single core testes because they do not focus on multitasking. Its 2016... moreOn single core the iDevices bench high due to the strong capability of their cores.
IDevices DO multitask, and do so very well with iOS 9.2 onwards.
Unfortunately for Android, the OS may not make use of all the cores in these devices.
Where iOS shines is in the hardware utilisation. Remember this is a company that designs BOTH hardware and software. (Yes, they customise their system on chip (SoC) to do very specific things).
I wouldn't call the A9 or A9X a dual core though. They did drop a core from their previous generation, but then they moved the M9 motion controller on chip. This makes the device perform in similar ways as some Android setups where music can be relegated to a 'low power' core, or the 'OK Google' feature can remain in an active state without ripping through battery life.
Number of Cores and multitasking are related, but we cannot count the cores and assume multitasking efficiency.
It is true that the average Android developer can assume the target audience will have at least four cores. Unfortunately they have no idea of the nature of these cores, as the Exynos way of doing things is quite different to the Qualcomm way of doing things.
For that reason; if I was buying a Samsung phone, I would opt for theExynos variant, as, quite likely, this is the one they are optimising THEIR software for...
Food for thought, ay?!
Seems pretty clear cut to me, if you want to play games you want the S820 version, if you aren't interested in games then you probably aren't going to notice any difference between them in real world applications.
How can these numbers be justified and be near phones like iPhone, while having the latest and greatest? No need to mention that Sami makes chips for iPhone!!!
"...The Quad HD resolution takes its toll on the onscreen test - the Xiaomi Mi 5 does a lot better, yet the Galaxy S7 edge doubles the S6 edge's score....."
Yeah double the ridiculous low score of the S6... a still ridiculous 15fps. Onscreen score should be 30fps no matter what you do. These QHD are a serious problem when you want to play a decent game. Imagine what a ridiculous frame-rate you can expect in VR!!!
Manufacturers URGENTLY need to use their few functioning brain-cells. It's stupid to increase CPU and GPU performance and then waste it on ridiculous high screen-resolutions. Especially when the difference is negligible with regards to sharpness but has a huge impact on frame-rates.
AnonD-515607, 17 Mar 2016Hate updates, Uninstalled itunes due to constant updates. Iphone as well, to many updates... W... moreLol are you serious? In case you didn't know, an android flagship has an OS update timeline for about three times. SOO it's able to support at least 3 OS versions which are OR updates unless you can Flash. CAN THE IOS BE FLASHED WITH CUSTOM ROMS? as far as I know the first nexus phone the HTC nexus one was Able to run Android Marshmallow, can the first gen iPhone run iOS 9??? Lol... Maybe you're just being a Mr smarty pants who doesn't know about it, or you just don't have an android flagship. LOL.
AnonD-470557, 17 Mar 2016I wonder why nobody noticed that Samsung has TWO DIFFERENT CAMERA SENSORS (CAMERAGATE) in S7/S... moreNobody noticed or mentioned?
Where have you been? There has been articles and comparisons
