This phone has incredible camera, I've the XZ too but it has an edge over the XZ, S7 has sharp focus when you bring the camera near to the object while the XZ blurs completely out of focus, the second thing is when you zoom in the pics after taking the shot XZ's pics looks distorted while the S7 remain sharp without any distortion. Still I'll keep both cause both are my favorite brands when it comes to Android :-)

I want yo buy a mobile with good battery and camera.my budget is average so confused betw iphone 6s vs Galaxy S7 vs Oneplus 3. Which one is better ? Suggest me
mischa, 19 May 2017This phone is really that great. Could easily pass as a 2017 flagship.Exactly, it can easily give the top flagships a run for their money. I'm really surprised the way this beast performs, in terms of everything, this is what you call a complete smartphone. After S6 edge plus this is what I wanted, didn't go for the edge version as I've already used it, this is even better, kudos Samsung!!

You don't need to connect any wire and plug the phone via the USB port to charge it hence it's called "wireless." It's totally different from contactless wireless charging which doesn't exist at the moment. And I'm pretty sure Samsung will first have that tech once it becomes available. S7 remains superior to XZ. It's not true that you don't need higher specs on Android otherwise Sony would have not put out a 4GB RAM XZs and a 4K XZ Premium, and just settle with 3GB FHD XZ.

For the sake of God how is it wireless if you need to keep your smartphone in contact, and it kills the battery superbly fast, i don't recommend it, people get over these gimmick features.
The S7 is really beast of a phone really!! Got it yesterday updated to nougat, super fast charging, excellent screen quality, blazing fast, great battery life and above all superb camera, in fact the best I've ever come across in a smartphone.

S7 vs. XZ
QHD SuperAMOLED vs. FHD LCD
4GB RAM vs. 3GB RAM
12MP OIS Dual Pixel f/1.7 vs. 23MP EIS f/2.0
UFS vs. eMMC
3000mAh w/ fast wireless charging vs. 2900mAh w/ slow and no wireless charging
Slimmer profile glass sandwich and metal frame w/ rounded corners and curved back sides vs. Big and bulky w/ sharp corners and plastic frame
Has heart rate monitor vs. no heart rate monitor
More elegant Touchwiz UI w/ tons of advanced features vs. Inconsistent and feature-less Xperia UI
There is no contest. The S7 easily wins against the XZ and even against the newly released XZs.

Latest memroy card info from Samsung says that max memory card size is now 200GB (see http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/skp/faq/1102309) - last year Samsung Support said 256GB was correct - so chatted with them earlier today and they confirmed that reduction was due to failed testing with various cards (including their own Samsung EVO 256GB microsdxc)

Even I'm finding AMOLED Cinema, which has the most oversaturated color setting, not that vivid as before. I actually prefer the more punchy colors with bleeding reds in Marshmallow.
Ali Bashir, 14 May 2017Lool, the Sony Xperia xz and iPhone 7, LG G6 are better than the Galaxy s7 by miles. Absolutely not. iPhone 7 is a crippled smartphone. No headphone jack, small low resolution display, non-customizeable and all other restrictions typical of iOS devices. The LG G6 has no advantage over the S7 except for the screen size. G6 has 2016 specs being sold for a 2017 flagship price. The XZ has no advantage over the S7 whatsoever. S7 is an advanced smartphone. Samsung could've released this phone with SD835/E8895 this year and would still be on par or even beat other flagships.
My wife threw my S7 at me in anger and this thing made a hole in our bathroom door. To my surprise there is not a single scrach on it. But now I'll have to replace the door. Also camera is really great and battery life as well. But fingerprint reader could be better as it intends to ready badly under some conditions
Got the gold platinum S7 today, what a sleek and gorgeous phone, the feeling in hands is really great as the size is perfect, updating mine now to the latest software, price has really gone down since the launch of S8.
