Nice review for a nice phone!
I like the top-notch screen, the good 88 hour battery life, the better camera (both front and back). I felt the Exynos 8895 didn't deliver a huge performance jump considering the Kirin 960, Apple A10 & even last year's SD 821. Maybe the Adreno 540 GPU will impress better. And BTW, QHD selfie video in previous Samsung flagships also.
[deleted post]iPhone 7 sucks, dude. Worst update ever for the iPhone. The SE is better than it. Stop trolling.
As expected, not a huge upgrade from the S7 edge. What will annoy most users will be the new 18.5:9 aspect ratio. No content provider will concede to that oddball ratio anytime soon especially for a phone. It took 15 years for TV stations to transition from 4:3 to 16:9. And YouTube didn't start offering 720p 16:9 until 2009-2010. Expect pillar boxing.
I don't trust gsmarena and displaymate when it comes to review. They say that galaxy has the best oled screen and excellent contrast ratio. Gsmarena even stated that it has excellent delta average, but when it comes to comparing it with other phone; the color on galaxy s7 seems less accurate than the Xperia xz. How come?
I feel like GSMA got a little enthusiastic when reviewing this phone. Like almost every small improvements became huge in their eyes.
For example, the SOC is on par or behind the A10 which is 6months older, and it's also not so much better than last year's SDs. It doesn't seem like a great achievement, does it?
This phone is inferior to last year S7 edge in pretty much every way. Now S7 edge is even cheaper too. This is hardy a upgrade from S7 edge. No need to upgrade.
I don't feel like buying this phone is a good decision to make, most of all if you have a S7 Edge. I would wait for the OP5, LG V30 or eventually the Note 8
