Is a good phone but the new iphone is still way better than this. :-P
Fantastic phone.fast,I use sd820 variant.but the camera can't compare to my previous Panasonic lumix cm1.that's is the best camera phone I had.the s7 screen are very good I love it.design are oval nice to hold also expensive.battery are below average for me.overall happy user
jb, 22 Mar 2016Phone works great, was told the battery is fantastic but finding that it's average. went from... moreThe phone is great and because the screen is so good its easy to neglect how bright it is, it will be easily readable about 12-15% brightness as long as you have reasonable eyesight unless your watching media or showing it off. There is also a setting in accessability-vision, for making the text more vivid , and it makes text jet , crisp black instead of grey.
You probably know all these things anyway, but in case anyone doesn't, joyfully exploring the applications menues and settings menues by working your way through them, reveals lots of things you choose not to use and can disable or deny unneccesary permissions that have apps phoneing home about your location etc more times than E T. Also the google plus thing like farce book is a drainer so if you don't use either, get shut.
Developer options turned on (anyone on here will tell how its done if need be.) , with animations set to either 0.5x or off and instead of standard turn background proccesses to 4, and with those tweeks, last evening we went to a gig, and with my normal daily use included + all the gig photos and 4k videos + intermintently video calling home to show em, I put the phone on airplane mode over night, took it off again this morning, played the video's check the photo's, read a book for 40 minutes ,been on gsma for 20 minutes and , at writing this my battery stats are ;
running time= 20 hours 4 minutes
screen on = 5 hours 2 minutes
maps navigation 2% worth, few texts etc
now mid morning at 19% usage.
This only on 6 edge plus, the which I have a bigger screen to run , so happy tweeking , you can get 8 plus hours of screen time depending on brightness, useage and of course my sync settings are on demand so as the phone is not constantly polling for what is not even there.
I very much appreciate the specifications of this phone, only that the battery is not removable and i wish Samsung makes NOTE 6 with REMOVABLE BATTERY.
AnonD-442819, 22 Mar 2016Is it wise to switch from the Nexus 6P to the S7? If yes, please state why. No,s7 has that samsung ui thats always laggy and always will slow down more as times passes; again,the screeen is sharp but not bright enough(much more dim than sony or iphone).
ARVIND KUMAR, 22 Mar 201612 mp is very low mp at least 20 mpHello Arvind,
I hope by now you know that megapixels are not the only criteria to measure the phones camera
Bought s7 3 days ago but found out the battery couldnt last all day? The Android OS is taking much of the battery usage. My s7 can only last for like 12 hours. Is that normal?
Love to see how this would perform as pure Android i.e. if this was this years Nexus bet it would be even faster. It should be an option i.e. Touchwizz or nexus you boot into . I know it won't happen but would be good to see.

Bought yesterday.. It is beast.. the camera is awesome and the Display is fantastic. Gets heated only during fast charging and music through head phone is great . sharp and crisp display. On screen feature is superb. Pride owner of s7
Phone works great, was told the battery is fantastic but finding that it's average. went from lg volt 2 while only needed charging every day and a half to charging daily
Happy to see they brought back SD card and waterproof. What i don't understand is why no usb-c? I mean a lot of chinese crappy phones have it, why didn't sammy do it?
Even HTC will do it on the M10. I'm just saying...
But I'm not gonna buy one cos in Europe is sold only the Exynos version but i want Dragons! :D
8 Exynos cores = 4 SD820 cores
So it seems I'm going with X Performance from Sony or the M10 from HTC (if it has waterproof).
AnonD-509898, 21 Mar 2016Help me out guys.. Galaxy S6 or LG G4 or Nexus 5X or Nexus 6!!! damn confused!!! Lg g4
