Can you guys help me out in trying to pick between s7, note 5 and HTC 10
I finally upgraded from an old flip phone. I love the camera and connectivity, but my reception is terrible. My 5 year old flip phone was so much better. I can't use this phone in my house. I have to sit outside and freeze. I used to talk to my husband every morning on my way to work and now I can't. Everyone I talk to says I fade in and out and I am constantly dropping calls. Yes, I love in a rural area, but if my flip phone worked (and I had to hold it together because it was broken at the hinges) why can't this one? I am very disappointed.
Ive had my S7 since Aug 2016 and its been an amazing phone. But I do regret getting it, as the touch screen has been replaced twice in it since. Nothing but problems. I've has the same issues with the S1, S2, and S3, all touch screen issues. Went to HTC and never had a problem. Got the S7 only due to the fact that the M10 was a Bell only phone, I had no choice. For a $800-$900 phone, its crap. My M7 still works better. Should have gotten the G5.
The S7's camera is worse than the S6, which is glaringly obvious if you have used both. Plus, it is only 12MP if used in 4:3 resolution, and drops to 9.1MP if using the full widescreen mode. Pictures come out obviously less crisp and the drop in MPs is clear if trying to zoom in and crop photos.
Otherwise, the phone is really solid and fortunately has a microSD slot for extra storage again.

Lost the ability to use it as a TV remote, but the worst thing is the camera lens cover broke after a few months. I was very shocked to see the shattered lens cover as you did. I wear my phone on my belt all the time as I have for all my previous phones for the past 10 years or so, this is the first time this type of issue has ever happened. I had it replaced and it's broken again. My carrier said they and Samsung would not cover this. Then my son had the same thing happened to his new Samsung so as well. Something is wrong with this s7 phone camera lens. Samsung needs to do something about this. I have had a Samsung for the last 8 years. Very disappointing.
I bought my Galaxy S7 32GB Exynos variant last September.. after 2 months of using the phone, i experienced lag & hiccups sometimes.. Snapchat used to be quite smooth... (probably now its slower & laggy because of some development updates by snapchat?) and some applications (maybe because of the constant updating of software by developers..?) otherwise it is a pretty good phone.. i hope it can last at least 2 years for me! The camera works well & spontaneous in good lighting conditions even in low light (depends).. The phone gets warm with intensive usage.. (gaming, snapchat, etc)
stand-by time is quite okay but it drains 5-6% when you go to sleep with wifi turnt on!!

This is my 4th galaxy so that should tell you how much of a fan I am of them. However, I am slightly disappointed in the s7. After having the phone for less than 2 months and never takin the (scooch) case off since the day I brought it home, one day when I had my phone sitting face down on the counter, i noticed some spiderwebbing near the camera lens. I took the case off and discovered the entire back had been shattered. This is in result of having a glass back. Yes, I probably dropped it a few times, however with my having my 5 for 2 years and dropping it over 100x I never had this issue. What's more disturbing is that when I took my case off to look at it, I got stabbed with a sliver of glass! I've also had the phone overheat a few times, but other than that, the phones performance is superb.

I closed all the apps down, had to take my case off and when it still wouldn't cool down I had to shut it off. This was right before I went to sleep so I was concerned about it catching fire, but needed it for my alarm clock....talk about being nervous!
just got this phone, so far so good. setup is flawless, some hiccup in the smart switch, LG to Samsung, and tried 3 times (talk about trial and error).
Network not working on first day I report to the samsung care but they have not proper reply to me very poor product I suggest Pls not parches this kind of poor product.

and you had 3 phones the same problem ? are u talking about the LAW OF 3 here , because this is the fist time in my life i had ever heard from someone havng the same problem with 3 new devices . all the new phones have SAMSUNG chip , even the iPHONE .
now i have the S7 Edge and is farrr way better than any phone i have used and i had also the iPHONE 6S PLUS. so stop telling lies man
This is my 3rd S7 and I am not pleased with it at all. While using video or facebook live it goes out and shuts down. I HATE I ever got this phone. 3 phone same issue. It sends me a message saying my phone is over heating. This last time I was live when my phone turn off and turned itself back on I called AT&T and the sales rep said my phone temperature was 114. it was so hot I could not touch it at all, now why would they send me the same phone?it's ridiculous!
