I have this phone since summer 2016. Good performance, with hiccups here and there, but as I live in a hot city, my phone gets way too hot that feels unpleasant, I have to use it without a case to help it cool down, and a single drop was sufficient to shatter its right low screen corner. It is a fragile product. Very fragile in fact. I once picked it up from my pocket and I was surprised to see my camera lens shattered, it takes blurry pictures and I cannot use autofocus nor manual focus. I knew that it was fragile before I purchased it, but I didn't expect it to be that way. I am not sure if I will pick a Samsung phone again, because even my former S3 neo takes better pictures than this useless camera. Don't get me wrong, before it shattered ALONE it has been taking great pictures, but now...
I don't know what the liquid cooling system is doing there if this phone can get too hot as reviews continue to tell people that it stays cool, but I live in a region where it can be as hot as 48 Celsius degrees. Very disappointed. What is the point of a good phone with a good screen and good performance if its rear camera is useless? Now I have to take pictures with the front camera like a fool, and even so it takes blurry pictures (less blurry than the rear camera) because of the lack of OIS. I am interested by Nokia 8 and 9 and future Nokia phones ( and Sony future phones because existing ones have average camera according to reviews). That is my personal experience.
N.B 1: the camera lens shattered spontaneously, go to Samsung s7 forum and check out that.
N.B 2: You may say that you have flawless camera, and that's good, but MY camera lens shattered alone, as I put my phone alone in the pocket and not in the contact of any keys or something.

Help phone keeps overheating, have full/wipe/reset it already but it still happens? It's probably due to recent firmware update may have bugs, so annoying!!! I may have to revert back to the preview firmware and completely disable updates!!!
Probably the worst phone that I've had recently particularly in conjunction with the Nougat operating system. It behaves totally unpredictably turning the speaker off so incoming calls don't ring, making calls without even touching the phone. Very annoying to both for myself and the person receiving the call, changing screen and text colour again without touching the phone. The phone is full of gremlins too humorous to list them all. The basic concept of a phone to make and receive calls
has been lost in the pursuit of upgrading the O/S as quickly as possible. When the phone does ring there is no way of answering as the scrreen is so cluttered. Possibly my last Android phone.

Buy a5 2017.
I'll take an S7 or S7 Egde over an 8 anytime. I still like the home button and overall body of the phone compared to the infinity display. Plus the cameras on both are virtually identical.
AnonD-718735, 27 Dec 2017oh ya i forgot the resolution btw the 2 is different anyway would you still recomend to buy s... moreYes (Recommendable). S7 Has A Very Beast Benchmark Score, Running Apps To Apps Flawlessly. You Can Also Refer To My Older Post, I Wrote Mainly Pros For S7.
I just recently got my S7 and for my experience so far so good but like what other people are saying when S7 updated to Nougat battery issue is there and I am seeing it in my phone tried all the youtube step by step to conserve battery life but still the battery drain issue is real it`s not like you use it right away and the battery dies.. by the whole day i am using the phone I find myself reaching out for my charger in the middle of the day to keep it above 70% my battery last a day when I don`t use it that much like at work when phone is actually not allowed while working. Also I don`t know if It`s just me or S7 has a screen sensitivity issue also.. sometimes it`s over sensitive sometimes it`s under sensitive.. I haven`t put on a screen protector yet maybe that will help. it`s a great phone no doubt it`s fast and fluid but sometimes you`ll encounter some lag but it`s not bad.. maybe due to a lot of bloated software included which you can actually disable when your not using it. other wise the phone is really good I would rather have S7 than A5 (2017) you`ll get more great user experience but if you want more stable kinda-ish battery? A5.
Sam, 23 Dec 2017I am also getting confused between note 5 and s7 plz suggest meS7
Should I buy the S7 or A5 (2017)? The S7 is like £70 more, I think it's worth it but not sure
