The camera is not a downgrade, if you know photography and anything about optics and lenses you would know that no cellphone camera is actually producing those megapixel numbers as true seperate sharp pixels. If you take pictures from a 16mp DSLR and compare to a 16mp S6 you will see this as an obvious difference in quality like night and day. A bigger sensor with a better lens that is 12mp will be far superior to a 16mp tiny sensor where all those pixels are blurring together
Samsung is not creative enough hey, this phone looks exactly like s6.whats with the 12MP whereas s5 has 16MP.i like the fact that it has a microSD card slot, unlike s6.water and dust resistant, ok! it has been done before on s5, couldn't they make it waterproof instead?It could have been a bit bigger, but then again im assuming in a months time they will be having s7 edge plus!
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016Inferred bluetooth radio. What is the phone not going to do?All.
I ran out off things to do with the iphone. I enjoy the Galaxy much bettet. Not anything too misd out on with the Galaxy. Only that I enjoy the 16 MP camera and would not downgrade to a S7 becsusr the camera is only 12 MP. Interesting me. Bump or no bump. I was not minding the bump. I like ridiclous things. Anythong which out smarts the Apple is what, I want.
alan hc, 22 Feb 2016I saw the presentation, I could hear to say it would have 3600 mAhThat is for S7 Edge
1) How we gonna replace the battery when is dead or depleted?
2) How this could be Gorilla glass 5 as it isn't yet launched?
Avan Dr, 22 Feb 2016Maybe because others can read.. Infrared = YesYes, for a while I was happy because GSMArena has mentioned that it does have an infrared, but I was certain it doesn't as seeing the top of the phone doesn't show an infrared, so I checked Samsung's official site for the specs of the S7 and yes, they have ditched the infrared, now GSMArena has corrected the specs sheet
Amir, 22 Feb 2016i had s2, s3 and but i didn't intrested to s4, s5, s6 and this new model. i dont like these ug... moreHow can they use corning glass 5 when it's not being made by the Corning company?
divaa, 22 Feb 2016i hate non removable bettaryBetter go for LG G5 with removable battery in all metal unibody.
just 3000mah battery? and lowest camera in compare to lg g5 and htc m10.
g5 has bigger camera and htc has 12mpxl with ultrapixel that has bigger pixel and sensor.
Disappointed with specifications iris scanner is missing.
Memory card slot is good with 5.1 size.
Amir, 22 Feb 2016i had s2, s3 and but i didn't intrested to s4, s5, s6 and this new model. i dont like these ug... moreDear, the Galaxy S4 is a legend throw smart phones history,even i try the S5 but honestly i get back again to S4, S6 still over budget for me so i did not use it yet :)
Very interested smart phone samsung galaxy s7 one of the best smart phone samsung done great job!!
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016Isn't the Edge in Samsung a gimmick too? It doesn't add much to the functionality. G5 stepped ... moreNo. Edge display isnt gimmick. It has some functionality, and make the phone looks really beautiful.
I agree G5 is more innovative phone. They make it possible to make a metal phone with removable battery. Hifi DAC is also nice addition, i hope it will get reasonable price.
So for me S7 is more beautiful, and i believe it has better camera.
G5 is innovative phone, and it looks like we will have many thing to do with this phone.
can someone please clarify the IR BLASTER for sure...because gsmarena is saying yes for ir but i cant find in https://www.samsungmobilepress.com/2016/02/22/Samsung-Unveils-Next-Generation-Smartphones-at-the-Core-of-its--Connected-Galaxy-Experience also the ir port seems very small or maybe its just a hole for mic or something....please clarify,,it would be a let-down if i didnt have ir blaster.
