Sojib, 31 May 2016Waterproof ?
It's being advertised as water-resistant. It's meant to suggest that you do not go diving with this. Rain, splashes, shower - pretty ok. Great that it has no plastic flaps like Sony,that easily wears out.
Some suggest it's a useless gimmick. Think about this - no matter where you are, it can rain, it can snow, there's water, you sweat.
This is a great phone that's been keeping me satisfied. Screen, speed, camera and battery life are all good. An episode of a Netflix series drops about 7% battery and to me that's great.
I do have one complain though and its about the curved screen. It does make for the coolest looking device but the edges are not as sensitive and sometimes I have a hardtime to tipe an "a" or a "1" with my thumb. Not only that but it also turns getting a glass screen protector into an impossible quest. I understand I could just get the "non edge" version but the smaller battery is a no go for me.
SAKA SAKA, 31 May 2016Not enough battery at all...
Even not for half a day, actually with celer data.

Thaer, 31 May 2016So I kept reading your posts before and after buying s7 edge, and after I saw the post about t... moreI got the wife an S7 Edge two months ago. She's not a techi user, and hardly use LTE or even via wifi. The camera is absolutely incredibly fast in focus, motion picture is something extra we keep using for family moments. The first three seconds of video before the still shot gives it extra context. 60 frames per second of FHD makes for very smooth video - something I'm really wanting.
I end up using the S7 Edge when she isn't off at the office. I'm now its default user during weekends. Battery is pretty ok, normal usage can last over 16 hours even with over 6 hours SOT, and even still have 10 to 20% of battery left.
So I kept reading your posts before and after buying s7 edge, and after I saw the post about too much lag I HAD ENOUGH.
The phone never lags a bit, it's smooth, the battery lasts more than what you expect from your tasks, it's the best, no more than 3 percent loss during night time, sound from headphones amazing, from external speakers is low coz you have WATER RESISTANCE, storage is enough and with SD you have no excuse, camera is amazing with FAAAAAst auto focus and double tap to start, screen is WoW top of the line. The body is amazing but sure need a protection, it's normal to get warm while downloading with WIFI.
Sorry for long post, but believe me it's the user fault not the device.
And lastly I have it for 1 month and no scratch on the fingerprint so be clever.
Try to load your PC with stupid adware and ton of shitty programs and see what happened, IT IS THE USER FAULT, thats why iphone is smooth, coz users are limited there.

Screen was broken in the firts six hours
Hi everybody. I have a samsung galaxy s7 edge. When i search in internet for the imei of my phone it says that this imei doesn't exist. Does this mean that my s7 edge is a fake one?
Somebody pls tell me or say educate me. Does all samsung android fones have same User Interface or same user experience? What draws the line between premium samsung fones and cheap samsung fones? only hardware ? or something else which boost productivity like blackberry does.
I have a blackberry passport and wants to go for android one but could not decided which one. I saw S7 and other android fones..and all have common UI, nothing new. Can someone recom me better premium fone?
aali2, 29 May 2016my latest update is G935FXXU1APD1Latest is G935FXX41APE9. Sam is mixing so much sub models its become a fish market. So many without warranty, have com n market, from fareast or Europe esp eastern. It does matter of updates chipset etc. Stay away. Might cost you less few bugs, but any problem is total loss.
Still prefer Lumia 950XL, gives me the taste of next generation business world
aali2, 29 May 2016my latest update is G935FXXU1APD1If I manually update this, warranty will void or not? Please let me know.
[deleted post]You should definitely buy an Iphone. It will surely provide a great VR experience for you. Not to mention you will get rid of the SD card annoyance. LOL
i m using since past 2 months, yesterday the screen is gone, given to service center to change the LCD, very sad to buy a costly phone and face such issues, it is better to go for cheaper models which provides tension free experience
[deleted post]That's pretty normal. 35 to 40°C seems to be the normal temperature, even with high graphics games. My Note 3 goes up to 45°C when combined LTE hotspot, downloading and being charged at the same time.
The S7 series has a heat pipe cooling system. First one Samsung has implemented on a flagship device. They increase GPU and CPU performances from previous generation. I'm less worried about 42°C happening on the S7 Edge.
I'm using G935FD. On fast charge its temperature went to 41C on normal use its 35-38 is its normal? Or device is over heating?
