But in my case, I upgraded from an S1 to the S4 and then the S4 to the S7. Each upgrade had amazingly welcome new features and technology.
Quite thrilled with this new phone!

That's exactly what I'm talking about, the upgrades are basically the same as every other manufacturer upgrade for 2016 CPU, RAM, battery etc.
The Galaxy S has been known for innovations which made it stood far out from the crowd. The S2 was a significant improvement over the first S. The S3 was just as significant over the S2 with things like smart alert, smart stay, pop-up player (have the video in a separate window while performing other tasks) etc. Then the S4 took things to a whole new level with features from the Samsung Smart TV and Galaxy Note 2 (Smart Scroll and Air View respectively) but the cool part about the Air View is that while the S-Pen was needed to do it on the Note 2 a pen wasn't needed to get it done on the S4...Samsung revamped the entire screen just for the Air View to work without a S-Pen...that's innovation.
Then along came the S5 with more innovations most notably the first smartphone to come with a heart rate sensor and the first Galaxy S to have a fingerprint sensor...that's innovation...and it's impressive to know that it is water resistant without it being the bulky active version...that too is innovation. Most impressively the S5 was able to maintain every feature from every previous Galaxy S (except the FM Radio which got cut since the S4). I only used the radio once on my S2 just to test it out so I won't cry about it being gone these days.
The S6 removed essential stuff like the SD slot and Ingress Protection and sealed the battery to top things off. That's not innovation. The S7 brings back the SD slot and Ingress Protection but removes the IR blaster (infaRed) yet everybody jumps for joy. That's not innovation. Removing a feature from one model and bringing it back in another model is NOT innovation.
Samsung has clearly ran out of ideas. I will stick to my S5 octa-core. It has everything including a removable battery which has sadly been gone since the S6. I guess I will have to wait to see what the S8 has to offer. Hopefully it will bring back true innovations to the table and not just offer a camera upgrade only in terms of pixels.
Hm, i guess it's expensive. I have a better alternative to S7. And that is Huawei P8 lite. It has top features, work perfectly, has a cheap price and opinions about it is the best. I really advise all of you who want a galaxy s7, to try a Huawei P8 lite.
I hate iphone because it has no camera o video setting that you cant adjust the resolution. Its hard to send big files to email
The new samsung galaxy s7 and s7 edge is the best phone in this year.
The samsung improves all the problems which the previous phones have.
Samsung brought to you the new features like water and dust proof and also a needed feature in this era the expandable storage.
The samsung literally kill the market of iphone 6s and also sony xpreia z5/
The s7 and s7 edge phone contain the best smartphone camera in the mobile camera history.
It have 1.7 aperture. And dual pixels.
It's auto focus is unbelievable.
And in recording of 4k videos the image stabilization is awesome.
It's also a budget phone with those features.
In sort this the worth of money for buying the phone.!
aiz, 24 Mar 2016I have both and s7edge is better in every ratio in look performance Hahaha...iphone 6s is a lot better. I agree on you on the looks and others because iphones has some outdated specs, but in real life, iphones 6s beats s7/edge by a lot... Laggy stupid toichwiz!!! ios destroys laggy touchwiz in any android os

Although, technical limitations of the microSD card reader on the device could also have a limit that does not exceed the capabilities of the standard's form factor and current chip density technology.

There's 200GB cards. Their for sale all day long on line. Why the 200, and not 256? No clue. Probably has to do with a limitation on how this amount of memory is read in ROM, but that's only a guess.
Otherwise, bought this phone yesterday. Love it so far. It got hot the first time I charged it, but for some odd reason, cooled back down. I bought a lifetime unlimited warranty screen protector, but I'll be returning it soon. It doesn't go around the curved edge, so clicking on this line doesn't work well. Esp if pulling the drop down in landscape mode. I don't however understand what they mean by "dual slot memory". I can only find one place for a card, and came close to puncturing the mic, trying to open another piece. All good though. Buy the phone, won't regret it.

You aren't as dark as others probably think. You made a good point and you are correct, memory usually increase in increments by x2 (2,4,8,16,32 etc.). I guess that's being changed by Sandisk now. I don't think it's 256GB from Sandisk as 56GB is far too much to be used by the file system. A computer usually reads a 10GB hard disk drive as 9.x, a 20GB as 18.x, a 40GB as 38GB, a 60GB as 55GB and 80GB as 75GB. Even a 512GB hard disk drive doesn't lose as much as 56GB as a 512GB hard drive is read as 465GB. I understand your point but some of the other readers won't. Coming from the computer era it seems messed up. I'm using a desktop computer to compose this message (smile).
The only innovation Samsung seems to be focused on with the S7 is the camera. Can anybody tell me any notable upgrade other than CPU, RAM, GPU etc. In other words what real upgrades does it have over the S5 because as far as I'm concerned the S5 have it all and even more like the IR blaster (inFared). What are the true innovations of the S7?
