The New Samsung Smartphones are perfect Android devices one can wish for in 2016.
The 7 things which were lacking on the last year Samsung Galaxy S6 are improved by Samsung this year.
- Improved Battery Life and Large Capacity Batteries
- Faster Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 Processor , Adreno 530 GPU , Vulcan API support
- VR Headset bundling
- Liquid Cooling
- Improve Camera – Both Rear and Back
- WaterProof and Dust proof
- SD Card Support upto 200 GB
The Galaxy S7 have the same hardware specs that we saw from most benchmark leaks , and also most other features of the S7 and its Edge are what we anticipated.
And this time without failing from its design ethics Samsung had used S6’s design language for S7 which is okay considering there are a lot of other improvements and design for the S6 is rather good.
Internally the S7 got several improvements and rectified some of the shortcomings of S6 like the absence of SD card, better water resistance without cover flaps and a larger battery pack and others as mentioned above.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is packed with small improvements make a big difference on overall user experience, like Always on display, IP68 rating, fast wireless charging and big battery capacity.
And there is no absence of gimmick additions like heart rate sensor, Blood oxygen level sensor etc
Let’s start with the screen, the Galaxy flagships always gets the best when it comes to display and its worth saying that Apple too prefer samsung displays for its products.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is given a 5.1 inch quad HD display and its stretched a bit to give 5.5 inch for the S7 edge but noticeably the S7 edge has a very good screen to body ratio which makes it feel smaller in hand.
Samsung have given a Always on display to show things like clock and notifications. This is similar to what we seen on the LG G5.
Samsung says its not going to have a toll on battery life, and whenever you slide it into your pockets, the proximity sensor will turn off the display.
The camera section carries a 12 MP main shooter and you may think its a downgrade from S6 but the new sensor comes with larger pixels and more autofocus points,
Samsung says the pixel size is kept large to let in more light and the aperture size is f 1.7 which is much better than the Galaxy S6 or even the Apple iPhone 6s Plus.
For the front, there is no special offerings for selfie lovers as both S7 and S7 edge have same old 5 MP camera for taking selfies.
The processor and storage space are model dependent.
Samsung S7 and S7 Edge will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 for the U.S and the other parts will get the Exynos 8890 (India is also likely to the Exynos 8890).
The Exynos 8890 is said to be 30 percent more powerful than the Exynos 7420, still staying low on battery consumption.
The RAM is 4 GB and there is no differential version based on RAM.
It will be more interesting to see the benchmarks and real world gaming performance for both the Samsung 820 and the Exynos 8890, we expect both to have very close performance and it will be a close contest which is going to be a better processor.
Samsung is still not ready to implement the reversible USB type C which they believe that the market is not right at the moment and may take a couple of years to become mainstream.
Samsung says its Gear VR’s compatibility with micro USB as a story for not having the latest USB Type C.
The battery has got bigger and it would have relieved lot of Samsung fans and is now 3000 mAh for the S7 and the S7 Edge got even large 3600 mAh battery.
The battery pack is non removable and the battery section supports both fast charging and wireless charging
Registration for both the devices were open now and the sales will start on March 11, Samsung is giving free VR headset for those who register for the device and an earlier delivery on March 8.
