Super great battery life. Nothing super incredible, but from 22 to 28~29 hours of battery. Now my s7 edge has 32% of battery, 23hours of use since last charge.
My note 5 battery life was about 13 hours max.
Shades, 07 Jun 2016I can't see the point in reducing the camera pixels. I mean why would you go from a 16 megapix... moreCamera are not about pixel count, its a hype. Nikon dslr lowest in the stable have 24mp while the flagship that used by pro and cost a fortune have 26mp. Megapixel is an old marketing hype, its the sensor,lens,processor and the program that make good photo. S7 edge is a good phone but not for everyone as it isnt cheap. The built quality are superb and the display are darn clear and sound reproduction were nice, stuck a good earphone. No one in their balance brain use phone as hometheatre. Other than that is you have the money to throw around get this well balance smartphone. One the otherhand you can get simillar spec phone ( on paper ) for less but in real world there are some missing things somewhere
techmad, 08 Jun 2016Interesting, as I too am on T Mobile and my S7 Edge goes over a day easily with moderate usage... more
Thank you. I tried hard reset couple of times, apart from the fact that both are brand new devices and I am the first person who unboxed them.
Also, do you guys get google playstore error -505 for some apps while installing. I tried all the ways to install NJ transit MyTix app and with whatsoever effort, the app never got installed.

Perhaps you may want to hard reset your phone and start afresh or show it to the tech support. Good luck!
Shreedhar, 08 Jun 2016There are few things to consider while making the decision from S7 to S7 edge. Indeed S7 edge ... moreAnyone commenting on the battery life S7 edge like 3 days use etc - Its all bullshit. I got 2 new S7 edge phones on BOGO plan and both have similar battery life. I unplug at 100% at 6:15AM, the time I reach office at 7:55AM it reaches 80%, by 1PM 60%, 4PM 45%, 6PM 28%. By the time I reach back home at 6:20 I am left with 20-22%.
I have good network reception at both work and home (T Mobile) and I am not a heavy user. I may open the phone twice in an hour to check th eupdate and use for around 10min max in one stretch. With the same usage with HTC One A9, I went home with 45% battery left.
So, Sammy fans dont fool others with fake battery details. It is what it is. I bought the phone for the same reason about battery life, but nothing that I expected.
manisha, 08 Jun 2016thnx a lot but is its sound is louder than j7 n all
m eager to buy this phone
plsss rplyThere are few things to consider while making the decision from S7 to S7 edge. Indeed S7 edge is a great phone but not for everyone.
I have big hands, but still S7 edge is too big in hands. When it comes to comfort there are 2 reasons why you should think about S7 apart from size are:
1. S7 edge, edge screan is all over an sometimes it makes it very uncomfort as your palm touches the edge and the typing or tapping is not so effective in needy situations.
2. This is very important - its bit difficult to leift the phone from a table becasue of the very narrow edges on the side. Most of the times I end up struggling to pick the phone up.
S7 edge is the best smartphone until now. Long battery life (3 days used lightly) applications are moving fluently...
Shreedhar, 08 Jun 2016There are two things - sound quality and louder. Louder - Yes, comparable to many other phones... morethnx a lot but is its sound is louder than j7 n all

Louder - Yes, comparable to many other phones even though it has the water proof. Sound quality is subpar, I get headache while listening for an hour. I used to listen to music whole day on my HTC M8, but I cant say the same with S7 edge
Please update the FM Radio to YES. I am using FM radio (not the internet radio) on my T Mobile S7 edge. Anyone can install Next radio, which is a signal based radio to use the FM radio. T Mobile version didnt come with the default Sammy FM Radio App
Shades, 07 Jun 2016I can't see the point in reducing the camera pixels. I mean why would you go from a 16 megapix... moreif you understand photography then you will know that it's not all about the pixel count. They reduced it to so they can bring a more meat inside, if you know what i mean. 1.7 aperture size with 10 megapixel camera can gve you better picture than a 16 mega pixel camera but with 2.0 aperture.. You will be needing the bigger pixel count if you will be printing in large formats.

manisha, 07 Jun 2016 how is the sound quality of this phone is it louder? i want to buy currently I am using n... moreYou'll be losing about 1db. Loud enough for notifications. Do not be one of those annoying people who walk around playing music with their phones.
Shades, 07 Jun 2016I can't see the point in reducing the camera pixels. I mean why would you go from a 16 megapix... moreThe camera sensor of the S7 series has increased area per pixel sensor. It translates to even better low light picture taking, and the pro mode gives you an option to even prolong aperture exposure. S7 series has the fastest focusing camera across all smartphones right now. The results are always sharp.
Hey, do you earn money from taking pictures with your smartphone? No, you don't. 8mp was good enough from my old Note 2, and then my current Note 3 with 13mp can't focus as fast as the Note 2, or as good as the S7 Edge's sensor and capabilities.
Other camera features like taking 240fps slow motion, 60fps FHD, 4k, etcetera, are all excellent with the S7 Edge. Here is an example of the shots I took last weekend, different aperture settings:
Darker picture was what my eyes were seeing, but the brighter one was with the bigger aperture of the S7 Edge. These two were taken less than 1 minute apart.
Oh my gosh... just upgraded to this.. Seriously awesome device. Decision swung by GEARVR half price.. cheers O2
AnonD-546031, 07 Jun 2016I'm not sure you know what you're talking about...I think he/she means that S6 Edge is octa core while S7 Edge is quad core. But that quad core beats octa core.
how is the sound quality of this phone
is it louder?
i want to buy
currently I am using note 4
I can't see the point in reducing the camera pixels. I mean why would you go from a 16 megapixel to a 12 megapixel on a newer phone? I have had Samsung since the S2 (which is still in use) and I am now using an S4 with a 16 MP camera. When I'm due an upgrade, an S8 may be coming out but if the camera is still worse then I think I will be looking at going down the Sony route!
