Brynn my old friend. You told the story well, though I overlooked the tv part. I ... moreVERY GOOD point!!!
Megapixels are not about quality but about size. You cannot ever compare a digital camera with a phone...
You can find digital cameras with 10 MP but the photo is ,without discussions, HUGE better than any picture made with any smartphone which has 16 MP.
If you want good pictures(when you make trips), use a digital camera. If you want selfies when you are on toillet and then posting them on Facebook, use your phone :)

Brynn my old friend. You told the story well, though I overlooked the tv part. I have a HD TV and I totally forgot that at full HD photos are 2MP (give and take) as you put it. In fact it's a little less than some rated 2MP cameras because 2.4MP cameras have a resolution of 2048x1152 and they are still listed as just 2MP while a flat 2MP is resolution is 1600x1200...either way you take it though a 1080p HD TV have to be seen as a 2MP resolution.
I have always preached that if you aren't going to print a big poster or a billboard sized poster then 2MP is sufficient for most snaps. For my working purposes I snap photos at 2.4MP (that's the lowest resolution of my S5) and for other purposes I shoot photos at 6MP. Unless I go into the a real advertising business I will never have a need for anything more than 6MP (second resolution option on my S5 after 2MP) so even the 12MP of the S7 is a overkill just like the 16MP of the S5 was a overkill.
Many persons think that megapixels equals better photos but it's really the optics/lens that produce the quality...megapixels help in the large printing area and for zooming in purposes on a computer etc.
My S2 had 8MP and for the most part I didn't shoot photos at that resolution. Furthermore high-resolution photos fill up your memory very quickly whether internal or external and I won't even get started with HD video recording. 720p is enough for me. 1080p and UHD will make you spend money on memory cards faster than how you spend money on food.
Having said all that it's always better to have more features than less features because even though they may not be used for the most part, you can never tell when there will be that moment when you need to have the absolute best (like a rare one in a million moment).
Saulang, 22 Feb 2016Should I get the Note 4 or getting the S7 ? I need your advice seriously! Thank you very much .Go with s7
Should I get the Note 4 or getting the S7 ? I need your advice seriously! Thank you very much .
Someone said to me about do I choose my phone on looks? Most of todays phones are all the same and pretty much do everything so selecting one I like the look of is true. If I use a phone I don't like look of I don't enjoy it as much. I usually go white but that emerald green colour in S6 edge is stunning.
My opinion after 24 hrs is I still love Sammy but for me LG G5 is for me,nicer design and them modules. That said the Sammy has kept that home button which I also love/use such a lot.
Overall not blown away so far with 2016 smartfones and still think Sammy S5 had everything and is lot cheaper too. No doubt will try these when price comes down (who am I kidding) in few months but will also wait for the reviews,lets hope GSMArena has them already.
If anyone is viewing their pictures on a HD tv (1920x1080) then the MAXIMUM they are seeing is a 2 megapixel image. It does not matter what MP camera you use 5,8,10,12,23 or 41 you will only see a 2megapixel resolution image.
High res cameras are good for zooming in on but a 6 mp image printed out at 6x4 inches is pretty good.Unless you are printing poster size images most folk looking at pictures on their laptop are not seeing these high res images because it is impossible physics.
I would rather have a good quality image with excellent low light quality than a 100 mp camera.
Fardz, 21 Feb 2016nothing new. no radio, single speaker, backward to usb 2. S5 user here still happy with it :)To FARDZ:
I'm a happy S5 user as well. S5 has everything that the other S series doesn't have including S6 and S7.
It's one way of camera megapixels more light, blur zoom, bet you S8 wud be 24 MP. Where is then technology but sale gimmick. So go and buy it, next year I will buy S8. This is a viscous circle of keep customers on hind legs.
lg has been smoked on this one... galaxy s7 best android phone for 2016.. i am so damping my s6 edge+...but can someone please explain what the dual core+dual core is coz...but im so getting the s7 edge
This 12 MP is better than 30mp and it doesn't matter about the megapixels if you say that a phone has 5mp and its bad then you have insufficient education
Bhaskar, 22 Feb 2016also the phone is waterproof On Samsung site, it says it is resistant to water. Not waterproof.
Still the same as the old note 5!!
NO CHANGE except camera and NOKIA's glance screen!!
