the below par camera is deal breaker for me. also that heft and size is no bonus either
The battery life is alright. At least not as bad as the G5. And just as expected. The S7 is the better phone overall.
If you have to mention ebay deals for Samsung, then you ought to make a comment about the $100 discount on the HTC. Also, in my book, reviewers are rightfully not referring to lost potential that can be recouped via updates, but for a device that has not yet started shipping, perhaps you should consider a reference to the update addressing bugs and camera issues and that will be available OTA even before shipment starts.
