Samsung Galaxy S7 Design
Did you touch Galaxy ever? Then, perhaps the most best looking and feeling you will feel the same. Well if you see it seems similar to or almost look identical to Galaxy S6.Because, Samsung S7 has the same structure the premium glass and metal finished it employed on the S6.Wow, the corners are rounded, and the aluminium frame between the front and rear glass is less obtrusive. Well,It’s comfortable to hold, and the curved edges and reduced width so it’s easier to use on palm.
For comparison, galaxy s7 vs iphone 6s ,it looks sleeker than the iPhone 6S, and it has also a better camera than the Nexus 6P. After the huge sell and customers needed, Samsung doesn’t too much change in design from the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in 2015. Samsung manufacturer does not follow Apple, HTC or LG or Huawei to make severe variations to their outlook design every year.
And you already know that, the S6 was already one of the best-looking phones around the mobile world, and the Samsung galaxy S7 edge plus follows suit as well. May be it will be next mobile phone for 2016.
Now let’s look the front and back, which are covered in Gorilla Glass 4, while a metal rim bends in between. There are two volume buttons sit on one side, with a lock or standby switch on the other part. we will discuss later on Samsung galaxy s7 spec.
The camera lens sits just about flush with the glass body too. This is one of the difference in between S6 and S7. Well, you can now tap out an email with the phone flat on your desk without jumping and rocking from side to side.
Apart from that, you will notice one notable design change on the back – the sides now curve ever so slightly and it makes a huge change to how the Galaxy S7 feels.
Oh! There is an absolute fingerprint magnet. You will notice it, that after a few minutes of use, the looks of phones back becomes a mess with finger print.
Beside the top is the place for the microSD slot, plus a microphone. The bottom is for headphone socket, another microphone, a speaker and a micro USB port for charging.
The Galaxy S7 has the same size 5.1-inch display as the S6.
The size, shape and general design of the Galaxy S7 means it’s easier to hold and operate one-handed too. The power/lock key is on the right side and volume keys are on the left side.The microSD port lets you build on the 32GB of internal storage by up to a further 200GB, giving you plenty of space.
Well, the IP68 water resistance, allowing submersion of up to five feet for 30 minutes, plus the microUSB port has been waterproofed. IP68 rating means, you’ll be able to dunk the Galaxy S7 into 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.But the drawback is that, the S7 will not charge if any water exists on the hole. This need to dry the charging port before plugging in.
Samsung hasn’t reinvented the wheel with the design of the Galaxy S7, but it didn’t need to. The Galaxy S6 Edge was an excellently styled device, and the S7 has managed to improve on that.Samsung’s screen by default shows the clock, date and battery level, plus counters for new text messages and missed calls options and a calendar view.
The disappointed point is that you can’t get the notifications icons for WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
The always on feature is really nice. But you can also turn off or disable the feature. Samsung claims it consumes less than 1% every hour.
Even in low-light scenes, the S7 is far better than the iPhone 6S. The quality is brighter. Well, I have to honest on my review with high price device; you will also face the digital noise though it is very little in low-light digital camera shots.The S7 has optical image stabilization (OIS), which helped keep the photos from blurring.
The old model of Samsung S6 had a brilliant camera. The ancestor of Samsung duos or samsung galaxy s duos or galaxy s duos camera was also good. But still samsung galaxy s7 video quality is very good.
The 16MP snapper of the S6 is out, with a 12MP offering tagging in for the Samsung Galaxy S7. So, it reduces the number of pixels.
I feel glad because my one of the most fabulous Samsung brand came with of a dual-pixel sensor. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge introduce the feature of a dual-pixel sensor, a technology initially built for DSLR cameras. You will get faster autofocus and brightness and overall quality of your shots.
In the camera app you can find the volume keys, as well as the on-screen shutter key, to snap a pic.There are plenty of modes and effects on the Galaxy S7, but Samsung’s auto mode is excellent and best.There’s a wide range of other modes such as panorama, selective focus and slow motion video joined by new additions including Food and Hyperlapse.
Samsung’s also added Motion picture and Motion panorama to the Galaxy S7’s camera arsenal. Motion picture was introduced on the iPhone6S and 6Splus. In different mode the quality also changed with its options.
So S7 is a little bit far away from Apple phone. we will later discuss on galaxy s7 vs iphone 6s. Sometimes Galaxy S7 the split second of video capture is often blurred.
microSD slot features
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a flagship device.But, the S7 doesn’t offer the 64GB or 128GB internal storage options that were available with the S6, you can add microSD slot to compliment the 32GB of built-in storage as your needs.You will be glad to hear that slot supports cards up to 200GB in size.
What you can do
With a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display the Samsung Galaxy S7 is an excellent gaming device.You can upload games quickly, with no hint of slowdown. Game Launcher, is a great debut in Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
Whenever you download a game the S7 will automatically add it to the Game Launcher folder on the home screen; and it will add or delete any game.You can also lock the navigation keys back, home and multi-tasking by game launcher.
You can also get the options for disable notifications during game play and the new game launcher can lock the navigation keys back, home, multi-tasking, options which prevents during a crucial showdown.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done that in the past, so I was delighted to have this function available on the Galaxy S7. It’s simple yet effective.
Movies and TV
Well, now don’t be disappoint, about movie or TV watching, because there is no dedicated video player app on the Samsung Galaxy S7. You need to go to the Gallery app to access movie libraries you put on your phone, or Google’s Play Movies & TV if you want to access your purchased content.
But, you can enjoy and watch the latest movie or TV show with an enjoyable experience.
For me one negative issue is that , the position of speaker is at the base of the handset, so it would make you little upset because hand muffled audio on several time and less comfortable.
The Audio quality is impressive when using headphones, although playback falls down in the same way as video when it comes to the placement of the internal speaker. S7 uses the music player by the help of Google’s Play Music app to fulfil your needs.
Always on feature : Samsung galaxy s7 what mobile
I am amazed by the S7’s new always-on display, which shows you either the clock, a calendar or an image or battery life. Well, useful for checking the time and the phone’s battery levels, a constant worry, without actually having to take the phone out of standby. LG G5 also done the same feature.
Battery life is long
Cheer up, Samsung S7 has given us a bigger battery –up from the measly 2550mAh offering in the galaxy S6 to a far more agreeable 3000mAh power pack in the S7. Other than the camera quality, battery life was my best choice when using the S7 as a new experience. The battery lasted through a full day of heavy use.
Furthermore, charging times have also been given a enhancement – both wired and wirelessly – with the wildest (oops!!! fastest) charge achieved.
You may confused about one question, does the Galaxy S7 last a full day on a single charge? Yes it is. It won’t go two days but it’s an improvement over the Galaxy S6.Well, with heavy usage, and running some benchmarking tests like gaming, music and other activities, the S7 managed to make it from morning to midnight with around 5% still left in level.
From CNET lab tests, the S7 averaged 14 hours in three tests, which is one of the longest-running results I’ve seen for any phone. But, the iPhone 6S scored 10.5 hours on the exact same test.
The fingerprint sensor feels a lot faster and more accurate over the S6 or even the Note 5. So Samsung upgraded their fingerprint scanner version from their ancestors.
Galaxy S7 unboxing
The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes in a newly-designed retail box, which slips out of a sleeve with the phone’s name embossed on it in bright colors. The actual box is covered by a flap – no more waiting for gravity to help lift the tight fitting lid of the older packages.
Samsung Galaxy S7 hardware and other features
The Galaxy S7 measures 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9mm, which is more shorter and narrower than the Galaxy S6’s 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm. The S7 is 152g compared to the Galaxy S6’s 138g, which is a little bit heavier but you wont feel it.
The final verdict
The cost is high, but that’s to be expected. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a top smartphone. Battery life has improved over the S6, but the Galaxy S7 stills need a nightly charge and unlike the LG G5’s, the S7’s battery isn’t removable.
The return of microSD support is enhancing and more improved.But, S7 is a total fingerprint magnet is just a mess. Overall, the Galaxy S7 improves on much every aspect of the S6, making it the best phone in the world right now. If money isn’t an issue, you can buy the Galaxy S7. I have written small review on samsung galaxy s7 and samsung galaxy s7 edge on my previous post.
Samsung is listening to customer feedback and bringing back favoured features from the Galaxy back catalogue. So be ready for grabbing future Galaxy S8.
