Anonymous, 15 Mar 2016Samsung has lags on each of their phones ! I have had many Samsung phones and ALLof them have ... moreSamsung and other android based brands have a lot of pre installed apps. Most of them are rubbish and useless. These apps are eating RAM and you can't disable them.
You need to root the phone if you want this thing.
Even so, the phone will freeze.You have to get used with that. Yes, it's frustrating because you are paying a lot of money but... I am telling you that from my experience. Get used with that ! :)
Yes, everything is OK for the first few months while the phone is new but then,..the problems appear.

Disable all the Samsung apps

samsung 7 has lags as well because there is no optimization. sadly, only Apple is doing that...that's why their Iphones have NO lags and they are not freezing. Yes, you are freezing when you see their price. lol
TanTrum0147, 15 Mar 2016Best phone? It can't even beat the iPhone6s performance. You call that best phone? For gimmick... moreS7 tie 6s in PERFORMANCE, 6s lead the singlecore score, S7 lead the multicore one.
now you tell me is your 6s DISPLAY, BATTERY, CAMERA, SPEC:PRICE RATIO is better than S7?
I THINK NOT.
Ram, 15 Mar 2016USA Snapdragon 820 for others exynos processor. so other country peoples are fool...wont buy ... moreLOL. Please. Each chipset have their own advantages.
Exynos - better Sot, multi-core perm, less throttle on gpu on long run, better music quality through headphones.
Snapdragon - single core perm, higher GPU benchmark (by a small margin).
Which is better? That's right its exynos again.

I was forced to buy a cheap j5 coz of lack of money. it was a breath of fresh air and now am planning to get the s7 when it's price drops. the point is Apple updates are not always good but Samsung gives you more than enough out of the box and I think that's what mattera
Ray, 15 Mar 2016hey iPhone 6 Plus runs very thing with full res.. but galaxy s6 and s7 runs on 1080p just like... moreExcept that the S7 still opens majority of apps faster anyway.
And many apps are more and more coded for multi thread

ray, 15 Mar 2016last one wrong.. best software optimazation?Just using less stuff does not equate to better optimizing
i am a iPhone user since iPhone 4s.. really samsung makes amazing phones.. sometime i really want to switch from iPhone to a galaxy, only thing that hold me back is samsungs updates.. i really care about updates when it comes to buying a new phone.. apple does it much much better than Aamsung so i stick with iPhone

Very good review !
I had some issues this Sunday when i tried to take some pics with this galaxy s7 edge phone @samsungstore in Liverpool.the problem is that you have to be very careful how you hold the phone and do not touch "the edge screen" because you will not be able to take the picture!!
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.
