Chose between 7 and iPhone this. It was this. Now it's been two months and oh how happy I am for my choice. It is the best phone I have owned, and although it sounds cliché, I must say it in your hand feels like a part of me, a feeling I have not felt since I bought my iphone 4s 6 years ago.
The monitor, camera (oh how good it is!), Quick charging, performance, memory cards etc. might just sound like reheated försälningsargument but it really makes a big difference to the appearance and in everyday use. Nowadays, Samsung has also come up with the software. It flows nicely and is incredibly user friendly.
Sure, the speaker does not sound great. And few unnecessary bloatware is still present in the software. But otherwise, I find nothing to fault.
Many reviewers have said that this also the s7 edge (which is a bit too big for my taste) is this year's best phones. It does not surprise me at all.
Went from Sony Z3 Compact to Samsung S7, this is what I think about S7:
+ Camera: Fast auto focus, good pictures in the dark
+ Responsive UI
+ Bright and high resolution amoled display
+ Good sound in phone calls
+ Fast charge
+ Waterproof to some extent (ip68)
- TouchWiz is still bad and inconvenient. Recommend to install Nova Launcher!
- The fingerprint reader can be difficult to use.
- Poor battery life! Max 2 days. Is used with 3-4 days with the Sony Z3 Compact.
- Missing running small programs in foreground (eg calculator, etc.).
- No charging barrier to increase battery life, as Sony has. The battery should stay between 20-80% for maximum life.
* Update after 1 year of use:
Battery life lasts a maximum of 1 day, even after keeping the battery continuously within 20-80%.
+ The phone is still very responsive.
+ Android 7 has improved the phone on many fronts.
Perfect Product! Beautiful screen, graphics and processor speed! Recommended for both personal and work use.
Went from an LG G4 to this, really just to get a good stabilization when shooting.
I wanted to be able to film without the "jello" effect of stabilization.
The camera is what I value the most by a mobile. But Samsung and its S7 would be the king of the mobile cameras are the least exaggerated.
It will take "good" pictures in dark conditions and focuses quickly, but where does the worship ended. In good lighting conditions, that is, a normal day, so the pictures are from LG G4 significantly better. When viewing images on a computer and zooms in a bit, the difference becomes even more evident. Where the Tactile G4 had an incredible details and depth nuanced colors, so reminiscent images from S7an more of a gritty pastel painting.
If you photographed with 12 megapixels and then to crop the picture from 4: 3 to be nicer 16: 9 format that is not enough resolution to, because the image when zoomed in slightly, and the picture becomes even worse. Harsh words, but true.
Otherwise then? Well, the battery life Nougat 7.0 is ok, and the screen is very good and bright. The cell phone is water-resistant. Some more obvious plus points that distinguish the cell phone, I do not. Certainly a good phone if you use the camera to take pictures of their lunch and posting on Facebook, and like a completely glassed phone with a battery that is not replaceable.
