Samsung is no stranger to manufacturing high-end phones. After releasing the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S6 last year, the phone manufacturing giant has stepped up its game by releasing a tweaked and improvised version of the Samsung S6, the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the latest flagship model released by Samsung earlier this year on March 11th, 2016. Among the notable changes made in the Samsung Galaxy new model is the revamped and better design than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Some folks argue that the Samsung Galaxy S7 should instead have been named S6S because of the numerous similarities it has with the S6. However, let’s dissect each feature of the Samsung Galaxy latest model and learn its worth.
The Make and Design
When you first lay your eyes on it, you may mistake the Samsung Galaxy S7 to be the S6 model instead, however, your confusion is valid because they both have a very similar design.
In addition to re-using the same materials like the premium glass and metal finish as it did with the S6, Samsung asserted its shift to the use of new materials, leaving behind the common plastic that it used earlier.
The use of premium glass and metal finish is also one of the reasons why Samsung increased the price tag of the Galaxy S7.
However, upon closer inspection, you will notice that there are key changes in the design including the masking of the metallic ring that appears around the physical home key.
You will also notice that the corners of the S7 are more well- rounded with a prominent looking aluminum frame which appears between the front and rear frame of the phone.
The display size is at 5.1 inches with a dimension of 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9mm which makes it 1.1mm thicker than the S6. It is IP68 water and dust resistant certified.
Samsung has upgraded its Galaxy S7’s processor and consequently the processing power as well. According to the benchmark tests conducted by the Telegraph, the Snapdragon 820 chips on the Galaxy S7 make it faster than Apple’s flagship iPhones 6S and 6S Plus in addition to the Exynos 8890 based Galaxy S7.
Due to the dual pixel technology, wider lens as well as larger pixels and broader aperture, the Galaxy S7 produces high-quality pictures which happen to be brighter and sharper, even in low lighting areas.
The camera also allows you to take motion panorama pictures as well as motion photos.
With an increase in the size of the battery, the Samsung S7 now features a 3000mAh set-up which has significantly improved the battery’s performance as compared to the previous Galaxy model S6.
The 17 hour and 48 minutes standby time of the battery is remarkable compared to 13hour standby time with the S6 model.
Now that we have had a review of the main features of the Samsung Galaxy S7, would you be interested in purchasing it, or would you instead go for other equally high-end phones like the LG G5 and the HTC 10? Let us know your thoughts.
