At the Mobile World Congress MWC 2016, Samsung unveiled their Flagship devices of the year which are the 5.1 inch Samsung Galaxy S7 and the 5.5 inch Samsung S7 edge. There will not be a Samsung S7 edge plus. They look similar to the previous S6 and S6 edge. Samsung only fixed the major flaws of the previous to produce the new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
It now has a curved back which allows for a better grip and makes it more comfortable in your hand. It is also now fully IP68 water and dust resistant. It also comes in four colours this time. Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium, White Pearl and Black Onyx (not Blue). The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are now 1mm thicker to accommodate a larger battery, the Galaxy S7 now has a 3000mah battery while the galaxy S7 edge has 3600mah.
Other improvements include the camera bump and the home/fingerprint button which are both flatter now. The camera of the galaxy S6 was also improved in S7, it now comes in a 12MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a really fast auto focus.
About the processor, the Samsung Galaxy S7 And Samsung Galaxy S7 edge run on the snapdragon 820 processor and has a 4GB RAM but that option is only available for users in the US. For users outside the US, the S7 and S7 edge would run on Exynos 8890 with 4GB RAM also. One major addition to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is the micro SD slot which was absent in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. There’s a new feature called the ‘always-on’ which shows you the time and date at all times even with the screen locked.
Although not available yet in Nigeria as at time this post was published, these devices may seem perfect but just like every other thing created by man, they have flaws.
One, the device body is very smooth and has the tendency to slip off your hands which may cause damage on the device. Also, Fingerprint marks — The Samsung Galaxy S7 And Samsung Galaxy S7 edge have a really glossy feel and as such fingers leave an imprint on them whenever touched.
The prices of the Samsung Galaxy S7 And Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are currently unknown. Nonetheless, I think Samsung Galaxy S7 And Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are awesome devices, I particularly love the added SD Card option as it gives you more disk space to save your movies, songs and space hoarding games.
