Very disappointed. Phone freezes periodically when on the charger, and needs a soft reset - so don't rely on the alarm clock to wake you up. And since the most recent update, my battery life is shit. Should have stuck with LG G series.
Phone over heats, easily cracks when accidentally sat on, finger sensor gets scratched easily, lags and hangs alot. Dont buy or your money gets wasted.
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2016Well they aint robust good lock dont drop it :DYep your right, have now ordered a clear TPU case of eBay for now as a compromise.
Started saving for S8 now
Went to buy the S7 but fell in love with the S6 edge+ what a gorgeous phone.
This phone is an utter disappointment..its an s6 with an sd card and waterproofing!
Superb features! (256GB EXTERNAL CARD!!! fast charging!!! largest aperture opening IP68!!!....which are really practically what we need!
Have waited nearly all year to buy a new phone I waited till they had all been released but especially new Nexus. Well after Nexus(now Pixel) was announced I was sold till the pricing come up then said "stuff that I am not paying that". So went round and round really wanting HTC 10 ,then thought about P9 and so on but like in Nokia days you always come back and at moment still Samsung.
Got this earlier today only just got it off neighbour it was delivered to them.This is such a lovely feeling device and I have not switched it on yet. I am not using a case I never do because u buy phone that looks goods so why cover it up. What should happen is these things should be robust in first place (like Nokia's are) as they are used outdoors.
Got myself a 128gb Samsung card to go with it(left other card in old device) ,it is the one on offer at Mobymemory for 32GBP,I stopped using Sandisk years ago they kept corrupting.. It will take most of today to set up but that is part of fun.It is on charge now till it is full then I will leave it 8 hrs before doing my usual discharge/charge cycle about 8 times.
Actually im writing this from S7, i used to like this phone, i may like it still but i have fucking problems mate. Its killing me. I have used iphone 5 and zenfone 2 before this. Actually iphone 5 was the best for my user experience im not comparing the specs. Zenfone 2 was the worst mistake of my life. Then i saw s7 one day. And i really liked it. This time i felt like samsung made it. I used it so good without any problems for like 3 months. Then Sdcard problems starded. Then phone started lag on lock screen at least for 10 mins. Mostly i had to hard reset. Then i went to Samsung service and they told me to reset it. So i did. But in 2 weeks the problem starded again. We can say that this is kinda standable problem. I did stand till the time the seal between screen and the glass came off. I went the service you know what they said? Its out of warranty. Then i said okay i dont give a shit. Just fix the software, here comes their biggest crap. Because you have a physical problem, we can not fix it till we repair the screen but you will have to pay for the screen. I said okay lets see how much. And they fuckn said 300 euro. Come on its fucking 500 euro on amazon. Since then i am waiting my phone to explode then i give it to the press. But yeah again 2 of my friends have it. They have no problems. Nothing. They love their phones. Guess i was the unlucky one.
Price well paid for. Very smooth operation!
Camera is the best so far.
Being dust and waterproof makes me enjoy this phone much better!
Data test for nougat is coming very very soon. Can somebody tell me the major difference bet marsh and noug? Very much grateful for any opinion...
Worst phone I've ever owned. I've sent it back twice now, because it keeps freezing and going through restart cycles. And because you can't remove the battery, you can't end the restart cycle until the phone dies of all power. Then when you do get it started it will freeze and the restart never-ending cycle will continue again. Three phone "repairs" later and still doesn't work. I've had it for three months, and the battery is worse than the 4 year old no name loaner phone I got from my service provider. Oh how badly I wish I had my stable, reliable blackberry. This phone is all hype ZERO muscle. For $500 I am so disappointed. What a joke.
Very Smooth And Super Fast. in Every way. not a Samsung Fanatic but i Like The Way This device Perform. 9/10
AnonD-607188, 06 Nov 2016So, in your world there exist two Android phone makers, Samsung and Sony - and one non-Android... moreSo you're saying that Samsung, Apple and Sony make worthless phones, what's left now?? What's your opinion about Asus, Lenovo, LG, oppo they make much better phones??
