Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Review

Rating - 5 / 5

More of the same with those subtle touches being added to improve slightly the main aspects of the flagship model where the bigger display is probably the biggest change from last years S6 version.

Covering the specs and main features.


Rethink what a phone can do.

Galaxy S7 Edge Design

The edge look and feel hasn't really changed from the S7, even though the screen as of course moved to a 5.5 inch.

The display fits nicely inbetween a shiney finish and a clean solid aluminium outer.

Taking away that the design feels old becasue we have become used to it being on the previous model, it does no where need a redesign yet, still one of the classy looking smartphones that you would expect on a high end handset.

No 4K screen

The latest technology on televisions for screens was expected to move into mobile phones with 4K but the move has not been made yet.

Looking further on maybe the Galaxy S8 release is pointing towards this upgrade but the current screen is still one that will bring a great viewing experience to behold as it's bright colours and Super AMOLED technology and with that you get an always on display function being those everyday features you generally rely on are there for you to see like notifications, yet saving that all important battery power.

Extended Edge Features - taller, wider and heavier

The curves of the screen were made initially for that extra space for different features which works perfectly well and not only that looks great too, where response with a light touch is quick.

Obviously the bigger screen acts as a downside on the stats with the S7 edge now around 8mm taller and around 2mm wider it is alot more of a phone, but this is expected with an extra 0.4 inch on the screen.

The disappointing bit could be the extra 0.7mm of depth which makes it a bit thicker but in the hand it is unoticeable really but a;; this adds up to more weight on which slides this phone even further down on the figures in the lightest smartphones list, even though you are not really buying this type of phone for that.

Galaxy S7 Edge Camera

The Megapixel drop from 16MP to 12 MP is somethin unexpected but other updates on the camera was unexpected but update s on other parts on the camera which works well in producing even better photos especially with light made by the aperture giving faster shutter speeds creating more light in those dark or night photos. It shows that you cannot go on just megapixels for the quality of a camera and the photos that will be taken.

Same as the S6 there are lots of features n the camera software to let you make adjustments to the way the camera performs based on what you require most or what position you are in at the time.

Galaxy S7 Edge Processor

The processor now also controls the usage of the battery too which is important based on the poor quality of smartphone batteries at present.

A 1000mah upgrade helps though as the battery needs to produce more the more that smartphones progress and with the next competitor to come out will be the iPhone 8 , so this phone will ahve to compete in all areas and the main one being power. and speed.

The octa-core, 2.3GHz processor brings plenty of power under the hood the ability to multi-task easily and produce great results on high end media like gaming.
