Trever, 05 Nov 2016So you're saying neither of them are good,hmmm..you seem to be an apple fan boy. So, in your world there exist two Android phone makers, Samsung and Sony - and one non-Android, that's Apple. Gee, I wouldn't like to live in your world...
Personally, I wouldn't buy Samsung ever again. In the 20 years I have used cell phones, Galaxy S3 was the only phone I threw against wall. They are over-priced, bloatwared and borderline ugly (OK, that depends on personal preferences).
Sony I had always some kind of problems with, though I haven't had one quite a long time.
Apple is OK, but way too expensive for my liking.
I have owned a galaxy s7, google pixel and iphone 7 plus which i currently own. Out of all of these phones the s7 is the top number one phone of the year!

JEA, 04 Nov 2016The S7 I 'encountered' poor camera quality.still surprised cos Samsung products are excellent ... morePoor cam quality is the sign of clone unit, or maybe u just had a unit prblm. Factory defect might be, coz I had this unit since 4mos past. Everything's going fine 4 my unit. No issue... maybe u need to visit samsung store for help, especially f its still under warranty
Trever, 02 Nov 2016Still confused between this and the Xperia XZ.if you want a phone with oversensitive screen,microsd problems,camera failure,non responsive buttons,overheating,bluetooth problems,laggy ui go for s7
if you want a phone with weak auto camera software and disable fingerprint in US go for xz
Trever, 02 Nov 2016Still confused between this and the Xperia XZ.Go for S7 it's far superior than xperia
Trever, 02 Nov 2016Still confused between this and the Xperia XZ.Get the xperia xz
Been using this since March '16. Preordered it and it was bundled with the Gear VR. Nice phone, but the blue earpiece already had a like a millimeter of paint chipped off. It's hardly noticeable so no big deal. Also, the transparent plastic cover of the flash and heart rate monitor seems to be easily scratched. I had to use some toothpaste and tissue paper to remove those scratches.
I suggest you buy one of those spigen slim or rugged armor cases to protect your phone. Get their steinheil curved screen protectors too. Get a high-speed and capacity SD card and you got one hell of a phone.
Camera is one of the best. I had to shelf my Canon DSLR for this one if I'm going on a tour somewhere. Focus is really fast.
Battery life is so-so. Just remember to get one of those 15,000 mAh powerbanks if you're going on a long trip without any outlets available. Battery lasts at around 8 hours with the wifi/mobile data on and frequent music playing and camera use.
I had a Samsung S4 and an iPhone 5s before I had this one. Games are super fast. It also really heats up when you use fast charging and cover it with a pillow, so I suggest turning off fast charging if you're gonna leave it overnight plugged in.
It'll also head up considerably when you use your VR headset. By the way, this is not the Note 7. People would often stereotype this phone as the one that explodes.
Waterproofness is an added bonus. Just becareful not to charge it after giving it a dip. Also, the speakers will be unusable for quite a while until it completely dries off.
Overall, it's a nice phone by itself. It ain't rugged until you dress it up.
The S7 I 'encountered' poor camera quality.still surprised cos Samsung products are excellent in pix quality..Also, I was told the S7 32g internal memory does not work without inserting a micro SD card??? Can sm1 help me with the authenticity of this claim..

Yvonne , 31 Oct 2016So, I'm going to get this phone on Saturday but still have my doubts about it, and I mean Safe... moreI have been using S7 for 6 months it has satisfied me and yes it's not note 7 that explodes S7 is a great phone using exynos version I will recommend you to buy S7
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016do you guys experience only 1.7gb of ram even if all apps are closed??don't wory even if 500mb ram free your phone will not become slow. at least ram is for that, when you need more your are able to use 3gb.but if you worried about battery life this will be a problem. just disable some pre installed apps if your phone its in any carrier, they have bunch junk apps.
