The phone is said to be the best android smartphone till date and is said to out class iPhone 6s in some departments. The galaxy phone had a though Lg G5 contender but they out class it. Their is not so much change in the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. They are just the better version of their predecessors. As we loved the S6 and the S6 edge, but had some of the problems and some features which were missing from the S6 version and certain compromises. So what if those problems were solved and a improved version of the same phone is given to you. That is what has happened. The guys at Samsung ,they retained some old features from S5 and the loved feature of S6 and brought to us a device which has the best of everything.
We will look at the detail specs a quite later lets first see some of the specs that have made the S6 the best phone of 2016 (for the first quarter mostly).
The Galaxy S7 edge & Galaxy S7 have an IP68 rating. That means it repels spills, splashes,dust and water resistance. This means you can use the device for about 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5m of water. The biggest difference between the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is display size, at 5.1 inches and 5.5 inches respectively. Both the device are quad HD, Super AMOLED and ae completely metal and glass (gorilla 4 ). The S7 Edge is slightly larger than S7 but still very compact in the hands.
The camera in the new devices have been reduced from 16 MP in the previous S6 to the 12 Mp in the S7. The new sensor with an f / 1.7 aperture does an excellent job in poor lighting and the larger pixels assist in the sharpness of images in these conditions. The result is quite impressive. The Galaxy S7 Edge camera has a lower resolution than the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus but the sensor uses dual 12 MP technology. This means that all pixels of the image sensor photodiodes have two instead of one. Thus, the sensor is able to focus quickly. When an object in focus rapidly changes position, like a moving car, the camera focuses almost instantly.The front camera has an aperture of f/1.7 and remains at 5 MP.
Samsung claims that the Galaxy S7 Edge takes 95 percent brighter photos, which is 56 percent more light than with previous models.
The new sensors perform quite well at the low light situation , in the darkness you are going to have good crispy images.
We have quick charge in the S7 & S7 edge and even wireless charging and bigger battery this time with 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh respectively.
The most anticipated thing in the new Samsung phone is the new expandable storage upto 200Gb which is a great news for the people with to much requirement for storage. The fingerprint sensor is also faster as compared ot previous phones.
