[deleted post]That's why Sony make a mistake. Like they did on Xperia Z5. It uses 5.1.1 and then up to 6.0 and then 7.0 and then 7.1.1. Too much update and messed up the phone. That's why Samsung doesn't give update it more times. Samsung just waiting for Android O. Just wait, Samsung will upgrade it. (Sorry for my bad english)
Got this phone for one year i have the Snapdragon Version..when i was
on marshmallow i have like 1% battery drain per 8 minutes on web browsing. While
doing skype for 1 hour i only lost 10-15% of battery for 12 hours idle and standby i only
lost 5-7% of battery. Now that i upgraded to Nougat my phone cant even last 12 hours.
Did skype for 1 hour and i lost 25% of my battery. Left the phone on sleep and standby
and i lost 15% battery. Plus wifi signal disconnects even if i already set my wifi to be always
on. Life after Nougat is Miserable.

And... moreThe difference between 7.0 and 7.1.1 may be incremental but a change is a change nonetheless and for me an update is still very important albeit under the hood or minor refinements here & there. Sony has already committed to Oreo on all of its 2017 and majority of the 2016 phones and yet Samsung is still stuck in 7.0n limbo and if ever the S7 phones will be updated only God knows when it will get updated as no reports out there.

I have Xperia X which I used right now. Android M doesn't have any problem which is their factory version but after updating to Android N, it starts having problems on networks which is very very annoying. Don't mind about Nougat version but at least S7 edge will get Android O.
Slash89, 03 Sep 2017That's true but I really don't care about the updates as long as my phone is working fine. To ... moreThat's very true it is my money. So i decided to go for the Xperia XZ instead of the S7. Mainly because of the great waterproofing (like the S7), more than decent battery life & camera (like the S7) but mainly coz of quicker updates. I think for me updates matter because it makes your device "up to speed" with the latest bug fixes, various enhancements here & there and most importantly security updates (unlike the S7). I did have the the XZ 4 months (w/ Nougat 7.0) ago and I can tell you so far the bugs I encountered then is non-existent now with 7.1.1.

To be honest I've the Xperia X which is running on 7.1.1 (still struggles with the camera really mediocre even after the latest android version) and the S7 but the S7 is much better than the X in terms of battery life, screen resolution, speaker and of course the kick a$$ camera which is the best I've ever come across in a smartphone. Rest is up to you after all its your choice and money :-)

But I still can't shake the fact that being an older flagship it is still stuck with 7.0 whilst the other comparable phones (in it's price category and quite similar specs) like the Xperia XZ (and the older Xperia X) are all running 7.1.1 right now.
Migas69, 01 Sep 2017Sorry for my ignorance but what it is exynos varient duos on the s7 Edge?It has dual slot sim and micro sd

Hi im planning to be buy S7edge, i need user openion how good is that phone, dos it worth?
This phone price (£449) is now similar to the Google Pixel XL. It may sound like a stupid question but which one would you recommend in the strictest terms of:
1. Battery life?
2. Speakers output/clarity/loudness?
3. Sunlight legibility?
4. Safe to use in light rain or won't get damaged if dropped in sink?
5. Extra features?
