Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016Sony, Take note. This is what you call battery life. (90+hours) Not that 40 hour crap.... Sony was the one hitting 100+ hours with batteries as small as 2600mAh.
Try selfie camera taking a picture using edge of the sensor. As in, position the camera so that your face is on the bottom or top of the image while holding the device vertically. On every S7 I've checked so far each time the face is on top or bottom, face gets distorted. My face looked longer than it is (significantly longer than in the middle), my wife's face became a round ball, which is, funnily, the opposite of our actual faces (my face was made thinner, her face was made wider).
Beauty settings that are supposed to "fix" the face don't really help in either "max" or "off" position (in fact, I couldn't tell the difference). I tried a number of parameters but differences were minor at best.
96hr will still be great for sure....but was really hoping to see atleast 5hr improvement from active.
And browsing only 12hr? Didnt even the Note 4 score close to that?
AnonD-520703, 30 Jun 2016battery life would be better if samsung has gone with the exynos 8890 but Snapdragon has its o... moreExynos versions have always had plenty of rom support.
Its the carriers that are the culprit. Mainly Att and verizon with non unlockable bootladers.
The better gpu of the S820 and a couple under the hood things are what benefits it.
Im still waiting to see a stress test comparison between the two different SoC equiped S7s
Osiris, 30 Jun 2016Plain uglyGuess you don't understand what it means to be an extra robust device.
Yet still no usb type c or even usb 3
It is even not future proof
Gets the update way after the original s and note devices
Not compatible with the new update feature of android N
Now someone will cone to attack but here we are talking about a flagship that should have everytging
S6 Active Better Battery life and S7E better battery life 3600mAh vs 4000mAh

If they ever launch an international version of this then they should use the exynos chipset.
is this unit (samsung S7 active) available also @philippine market?
jrharbort, 30 Jun 2016If I remember correctly, GSMArena tested the Galaxy S6 Active with a different screen brightne... moreNot by much though. This one was probably around 220 nits or something. The sd820 is the main cause by far.
If I remember correctly, GSMArena tested the Galaxy S6 Active with a different screen brightness calibration (1/2 max brightness). They switched to the 200nits standard for testing after that review. So in reality, the battery score for the S7 active is comparatively higher than the 96 hours endurance measured here.
