Today I've signed out my S7 edge as my daily driver, changing to my Pixel 2 XL. I would like to give some quick review and how it compares with my other phone, 1+5T, XZP and P2XL.
Design: The best design among the rest. One of my favourites, even looks more classy than it's successor, S8 & S9.
Performance & UI: Feature-packed UI which is good but not much correctly optimised, some minor lags occured but not a big deal. Gaming is not problem but not the best.
Display & battery: One of the best compared with XZ Premium and Pixel 2 XL and almost nails the OnePlus 5T. Strong colours and super vivid. Battery is good for me but I can't assure the battery life if you buy it nowadays because Oreo update crashes majority of S7 edge users.
Camera: Among 1+5T, XZP and P2XL, S7e takes on second place right after P2XL on number one. XZP and 1+5T close right behind the S7e. I will post the detailed comparison soon.
Conclusion, is it worth to buy S7 edge in September 2018? Depends. I think it can last until 2019 as their last year surviving in the market. It may be priced around 295 EURO, MYR1399 (in my country Malaysia, I don't know the price on your region). For the price, I think it's no longer be worthy to own it now. Not saying that this phone is bad, but there's many alternative choices out there as other countries offered better specs for better price. But for secondary phone, it's okay. The camera is still reliable if not among the best.

s7edgeuser, 03 Sep 2018Do you play lots of games on your s7e? Have you tried looking to see if an app is causing it. ... moreNo games. No apps that drains battery. Simply I've come to peace that my phone is bugged and that's it. As my friend told me - you shouldn't upgrade for few extra options in the new OS as you will use this phone for not long period of time anymore.
