Every year before a handset is released I will have a quick look at China's great knock off clone handsets from aliexress.com or dhgate.com. Usually these handsets are released 2-3 weeks BEFORE the big brands get to show the real deal. It happened with the iPhone 6, It happened with the HTC M8 and also happened with the Galaxy S5. Common search criteria's are HDC or Goophone, But Ive come across this new thing... Could this possibly be the S7? http://www.dhgate.com/store/product/umi-rome-x-20160107/371887413.html
Would like phone you could see and use in the sun light. I have s3 an s5 planning to buy s7 edge.
sohail, 18 Jan 2016Agreed! I too started out with Galaxy S2 and loved it. Then upgraded to S4 and love it too!
B... moreI was angry at first over the non-removable battery and SD card slot. However, I decided to take the plunge and purchased a Note 5 with a 64GB memory. I was very surprised by the battery performance. I can be used heavily for the majority of the day and the battery holds up well. It will charge from 10% to 100% in less than an hour and faster if it is turned off. if you are on-the-go, then I recommend an Anker 10,000mAh portable power bank. They charge the phone quickly and you can charge it twice using the bank. If you need to transfer files fast, SanDisk makes a USB to micro USB transfer flash drive. Mine is 32GB and it's easy to use. You can also get a portable hard drive for smart phones. Samsung has one out in 1.5TB but the reviews on it aren't great. Other companies make them as well and they are slightly smaller than the phone. They are nice if you travel a lot and want to watch a movie or access documents where wifi is weak, doesn't exist or isn't secure. The point is that you don't need a memory card any more.
I'm sure that the S7 will be even better and one rumor has the lens on the camera to have 1.2 aperture. That's great for those fast shots. With all of the options available to smart phones, you won't need the extra battery or extra memory.

Been looking for a worthy phone to replace it since then(S5 is amazing but no 4G model in my country! :( )
Removable battery and storage are very important to me! (for various purposes including availability of spare batteries in the open market.)
If battery are non removable, there wont be any spares in the market, which is a huge deal breaker!
Agreed that its time to jump ship! So long Sampplesung

I guess im not getting a s7. Time to jump ship.
Enalla, 17 Jan 2016They dont include an SD slot because the SD cards available are "not fast enough for their tec... moreActually, in an interview a few months ago they explained that they are opting on not using SD card on their phones because there are a lot of people that simply buy the cheapest card they can, even if that's a bad quality card (most people don't even know about writing and reading speeds and how they vary depending on brand and model) so when they're using any resource that is stored on that card and the phone starts to lag they inmediately blame the phone and tell other people that their phone is shit with a flagship price. In the world of bussines is always said that 1 dissatisfied customer means losing hundreds or thousands of potential customers because of bad image they get from that one customer who told his/her friends that the product was bad... then a percentage of them told their friends that the same product was bad (even if they hadn't used it, just for that bad review) and so on.
So... they just opted for staying safe by no using that "Risky feature".

There is a rumor says that Galaxy S7
Will be cheaper than Galway S6 10% !!!
Samsung disappointed me over and over again .
-No slot for SD card
-No water resistant
-No removiable battery
I'm still with note 3 and no doubt about it
Samsung you are pushing me to by an iPhone
Go Big or Google home
P, 14 Jan 2016I agree 12MP sounds like a step down. I am sure the sensor and aperture and everything will be... moreApple has proved for 8 years that mp don't paint the whole picture. They've had the best smart phone camera for 7 out of 8 years. Arguably 8 out of 8.
I didn't like only one thing about it. It's not water resistant. Even better if the phone had water resistant protection.
Kiwi_downunder , 15 Jan 2016Wow GSM just educated guesses on a phone not out for 6 weeks at least. Also a 12Mp camera is... moreif samsung improve camera 16 mp or more in samsung galaxy s7 then i am purchase it and it attract more customers but if it is 12mp then lg g5 , htc10, huawei mate 8 , sony xperia z6 is better than it and many companies available in market who prodive at least 13mp which higher then 12mp and if sensor is more then other companies also improve it with camera mp
