The S7 is really beast of a phone really!! Got it yesterday updated to nougat, super fast charging, excellent screen quality, blazing fast, great battery life and above all superb camera, in fact the best I've ever come across in a smartphone.

S7 vs. XZ
QHD SuperAMOLED vs. FHD LCD
4GB RAM vs. 3GB RAM
12MP OIS Dual Pixel f/1.7 vs. 23MP EIS f/2.0
UFS vs. eMMC
3000mAh w/ fast wireless charging vs. 2900mAh w/ slow and no wireless charging
Slimmer profile glass sandwich and metal frame w/ rounded corners and curved back sides vs. Big and bulky w/ sharp corners and plastic frame
Has heart rate monitor vs. no heart rate monitor
More elegant Touchwiz UI w/ tons of advanced features vs. Inconsistent and feature-less Xperia UI
There is no contest. The S7 easily wins against the XZ and even against the newly released XZs.

Latest memroy card info from Samsung says that max memory card size is now 200GB (see http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/skp/faq/1102309) - last year Samsung Support said 256GB was correct - so chatted with them earlier today and they confirmed that reduction was due to failed testing with various cards (including their own Samsung EVO 256GB microsdxc)

Even I'm finding AMOLED Cinema, which has the most oversaturated color setting, not that vivid as before. I actually prefer the more punchy colors with bleeding reds in Marshmallow.
AnonD-481725, 14 May 2017Lool, the Sony Xperia xz and iPhone 7, LG G6 are better than the Galaxy s7 by miles. Absolutely not. iPhone 7 is a crippled smartphone. No headphone jack, small low resolution display, non-customizeable and all other restrictions typical of iOS devices. The LG G6 has no advantage over the S7 except for the screen size. G6 has 2016 specs being sold for a 2017 flagship price. The XZ has no advantage over the S7 whatsoever. S7 is an advanced smartphone. Samsung could've released this phone with SD835/E8895 this year and would still be on par or even beat other flagships.
My wife threw my S7 at me in anger and this thing made a hole in our bathroom door. To my surprise there is not a single scrach on it. But now I'll have to replace the door. Also camera is really great and battery life as well. But fingerprint reader could be better as it intends to ready badly under some conditions
Got the gold platinum S7 today, what a sleek and gorgeous phone, the feeling in hands is really great as the size is perfect, updating mine now to the latest software, price has really gone down since the launch of S8.
I got this beast at 250dollar . So far so good . When u uptadate to new version the battery life would be damn drain for a week . But after that the battery life ate back to business as usual

I've ordered the S7 online at a very reasonable price specially since the S8 has hit the stores. Preferred it over the S7 edge as I'm not comfortable with edge phones although I've used the S6 edge plus but it's pretty hard to find a decent screen protector for it. Well it'll arrive by this Friday, hope it turns out to be good.
AnonD-668746, 14 May 2017And what about the gray line issue??? Only with the s7 edge??? I am gonna buy the phone tomorrowI've never heard of that issue. That seems to be much more uncommon than the vertical pink line issue.

Joseph, 14 May 2017What are the pros and cons... How about the battery life... I'm a heavy userDisplay, it has a high pixel density which provides a decent quality the colors are good but over saturated which makes it sometimes unpleasant to the eyes.
Performance is flagship you might face some slow down but not that worse.
Speakers is a one mono at the bottom, volume is above average, con you might block it with your hand especially when you use it in landscape mode "" i don't like that speaker position""
Camera, the s7 was one of the best smartphone cameras in 2016, auto focus super fast, dynamic range is very good, colors over saturated, overexposed ""always over bright""
image stabilization is average.
Design is taste, buy a case and screen protector it is very slippery and sensitive.
AnonD-27765, 13 May 2017Only the S7 edge has the vertical pink line display issue, not the S7.And what about the gray line issue???
Only with the s7 edge???
I am gonna buy the phone tomorrow
Joseph, 14 May 2017What are the pros and cons... How about the battery life... I'm a heavy userMy battery will last two days and still has 30 % left with low usage (some internetting, a few phonecalls and taking some pictures)
At normal to more intensive use the battery is always good for a at least whole day or a bit more
With realy heavy use I will need take a powerbank with me (like shooting video's and take lots and lots of pictures) (when you go visit the zoo or something).
I think the battery life is one of the strong points of the S7. Before this one I had a Sony z5 compact, wich would never ever last two days, only maybe if I didn't use it at all...
Joseph, 14 May 2017What are the pros and cons... How about the battery life... I'm a heavy userS7 is better than most smartphones released so far this year. The pro is that you're getting for the most part essentially current flagship specs for a much cheaper price. The only con I can think of is that the phone is fragile. One single drop can easily shatter its glass screen and body and repair will cost you upwards of 200 dollars. S7 is a better choice than the iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG G6, Huawei P10 and Sony Xperia XZs. It's more advanced yet cheaper than all of them.
