Review of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge


Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge is a phone which is ruling the market now. It is the predecessor of a multi award winning phone and is made with certain simple touch. Samsung Galaxy S7 is packed in a small case but is definitely a powerhouse performer and still has all the normal qualities of Samsung Galaxy S6 which was specially appreciated for its curved edge. There is not definitely a single lover of the phone and has many other in the line. However that curved edge was not quite liked in the later phase and people got bored of that specific feature. They have seen it all. Thus Samsung decided to take a step forward and make a bold move with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Galaxy S7 looked quite similar to the previous models and not much has been changed there.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were making quite a stir. With the introduction of S7 edge there was a strong reaction from every area. The changes that have been introduced are brilliant and an added zest was the different design that has been galloping all the attention now. The screen is large enough and yet not much uncomfortable when kept in the hand. The rear is curved which makes it quite flexible to carry and hold.

Battery life

One of the most interesting features of both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge is the waterproof feature that has been added to give a very new outlook. There is a micro SD card slot available. With so much power to the phone already that with no given time it could be strapped on the speedboat back and make it move across the Atlantic for sure. This is even more possible now as the battery that has been provided with it is not a disappointment unlike last year release of S6 phones. The battery has been boosted massively which enable the handset to work approximately for 24 hours in between charges.

Differences in the design and cost

There is not much difference in the cost of both the phones. The design is also quite similar between Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The cost is quite a hefty one though. In the UK market the cost is ranged around 640 pound which has sort of reduced to 630 pound now. In the US market one is looking at a huge 299 dollar which is provided on a contract of two years. The new unlocked price has been risen up to 769 dollars which has now reduced to 600 dollars. The price is not quite different in comparison to the S7 phones. But this price is worth the phone as it has got some features that are worth buying the phone.

Design and specification

There is a sharp difference in the design of both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The Galaxy S7 edge is set that is lives and dies by the very look that it has. If one is interested in power of a phone in general, then one can definitely try out Galaxy S7. The latter model is much smaller and quite normal in its specifications but is quite smart in comparison to other phones. The screen is slightly sharper which could be due to the packing the similar pixels into smaller area.

Camera and other features

Both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are provided with simple option to tap twice on the home bottom in order to start the camera. The camera is a really nice feature although not as fast as the other phones in the market. It helps the one who is snapping feel more intuitive and usable. Samsung has got a really smart move to pack both the elements together into one. The volume down button can also be pressed in order to take a picture with the phone feeling a lot steadier in hand as it is provided with slightly smaller wieldy size. Whether one is shooting on a wide landscape or a close-up of a wide angle, one can just seize the moment with the help of Galaxy S7 edge camera which performs quite nicely.

Camera interface

One of the most interesting things that caught the attention was how the many features and qualities on Galaxy S7 edge’s camera interface were similar to that of an iPhone. There is no argument on the initiation of both the phones, as they are quite different in many aspects, but they have got certain similar features. There is a simple camera interface on the part of Samsung as compared to Apple which has got more settings and features. One of the features have been strangely added to Galaxy S7 edge is the ‘motion photo’ feature which captures very short videos before one can take a picture. It is not a quite appreciated feature as it produces low-res and silent videos that start too soon. The length of the videos in both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge is quite random as well.


On testing both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge one can say that they have some features that attract wide attention from various sectors making both the phones quite popular in the recent market.
