LOL WHAT? Samsung? The company that made flagship phones that cant open more than 6 apps before the apps having to restart? The company that sells flagship phones with beasty specs and 4gb ram that still lag more than its competition?
Jaff, 29 Feb 2016I am extremly big fan of samsung but what is the logic behind downgrade the advance model big ... moreif you call this a downgrade just because it has a smaller megapixel count..then you don't know anything about camera technology...
HeyI just want to say that for all the people that is talking about downgrade specsin cpu and camera. the amount of MP on the camera sensor is just means the picture will be bigger or smaller. 12 MP is an smaller picture than 16MP but other factors like lense,pixel size, aperture etc...this specs are the one that count when you are looking for a great picture and S7 will have an smaller picture with a really high quality. for examplehave you look chinnesse feature phones with 20MP and you look bad quality pictures. they actually cuold have a cheap 20mp picture but that doesnt means quality. about the cpu SnapDragon 4 cores cpu gives a better performance than 810 you cant compare ald generations with the new ones .... is not the same to have a 2 cores Intel core i-5 than an old intel core 2 quad. ...... more cores doesnt mean better quality more MP doesnt means more power.. its funny how some people talk about downgrade and they dont know about tech specs they just see numbers and they dont even understand what they mean..and yes samsung is expensive apple is expensive because to get this new technologies they have to pay a lot of money to get better CPU better camera sensors better cooling system so when they get the technology working they can get back the money the use to get it. and if you dont have the money to buy one just go and buy other phone. with higher numberlower price and lower perfomance and quality.

Anonymous, 29 Feb 2016No it doesn't have FM radio, IR blaster, Quick Charge 3.0 and Multi user mode for dual sim var... moreActually, I liked the Samsung Galaxy S7, but it's annoying that it doesn't have these key features, especially most important one for me and others as Dual-SIM variant phone owners is the Multi-user mode (Guest mode) because with this feature we can install apps like Whatsapp and other apps that require phone number for both SIMs and this feature is already exist in stock android and no need for extra work but Samsung remove it in every update while they have Duos variants and that way I'm not able to get benefit from buying Samsung phones.
LG, Sony and Motorola are the main choices for Dual-SIM variant phone users, so many people want the Dual-SIM phones and its big market to invest in and Apple doesn't exist in this market but Samsung seems not interested when it removes Multi-user mode.
I understand that Samsung can't get rid of Touchwiz especially with edge variant and note series because they need special features, but the regular S7 don't need that extra bloatware even if the devices don't lag, faster updates and newer android version are more important than themes and the shape of the icons no one will by Samsung phone because of its themes and icons anyone have different taste and can change the appearance according to what he like that's the power of android that way its better that they use the original appearance of everything.
My advice for Samsung is that they make Touchwiz litter as possible to be easily updated in fast time and make it look like a stock android without removing any feature that exist in stock android like Multi-user mode and put their launcher and app icon packs in the Samsung section in play store this way they give the user the choice and that make everyone happy.

It has everything on top spec, welcome back the Micro SD slot, and water resistant feature, except it now doesn't has IR blaster for remote control, no FM radio.
It's battery also is non-removable this time, but it is the biggest capacity among the generation.
Touchwiz actually is ok, it has much improved now for much simple usage, and optimizing much on the battery life. All in all, still an "Android" user experience overall. AMOLED is the king of the smartphone screen.
Still, Note 6 will be much more excited with it's bigger screen, or it's S7 Edge now with 5.5" screen and bigger battery. Just a preference. S-Pen is a plus too.
This is the true high end phone that actually worth your money, not those China brand that trying to sell at just a bit cheaper price, with compromising build and part's quality. It is also not the overpriced HTC and Huawei, with mediocre hardware selling at much premium price.
Anonymous, 29 Feb 2016If they will do a 4.7 inch high end phone i will be the first who will buy it . I totaly agree The S7 with 5.1 screen diagonal is similar in size with Iphone6 with 4.7", it's S7 for me.
Anonymous, 29 Feb 2016FM radio ???No it doesn't have FM radio, IR blaster, Quick Charge 3.0 and Multi user mode for dual sim variant which is funny
Finally, Samsung has come back to its senses and the roots. MicroSD is back, along water resistance. I am a bit worried from the SD820, but this phone seems perfect. Good battery for a rather small screen too.
