What’s So Interesting in Galaxy S7?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review:-
It’s fair to say that design wise the Galaxy S7 is near identical to 2015’s Samsung Galaxy S6, but I am glad to see it make a return for the Galaxy S7. The phone uses a diamond sub-pixel layout (one of the sharpest QHD phone displays available) and has a 5.1 in screen at 2560 x 1440 pixels and 577 ppi. The display is incredibly sharp, bright and vibrant with loads of pop from the colours and contrast. I love the matte finish metal surround that delivers a high-end look and feel to it. It also offers a rigid and sturdy presence to the device during operation. The device is solid and offers a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Galaxy S7 is not a thick, awkward, or heavy phone by any means. It simply has a heftier look and feel and it remains far from being cumbersome in any way. The display bezels are nicely thin so that the front fascia is mostly screen – always a good look – while on the rear the only disruption to the sweeping expanse of curved glass is the now-familiar softened square camera port, flanked on one side by a dual-LED flash module. One of the key features of Galaxy S7 series is the reintroduction of waterproofing. You can now simply use your phone in the bath or near the swimming pool without any worry! Last but another superb feature is the ‘Fingerprint Scanner Home key’ flanked on each side by capacitive Android controls for multitasking and navigation.
Specs, Performance, Camera:
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is powered by 1.6GHz octa-core and runs Android 6.0. It is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) Smartphone that comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 200GB via a microSD. Have a great camera experience with a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front camera. The phone also supports Dual-Band, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and 4G.
For many Smatphone users long battery life is the most important concern as well as the holy grail feature for smartphones. Happily, recent high-end Android devices as well as iPhones have all impressed the customers with their capable battery life. The Galaxy S7 battery life is noticeably better than its predecessor. S7 packs a 3000mAh non removable battery which lasts quite long even with the most voracious power users. The only handset that may outclass the Galaxy S7 so far is the Huawei Mate 8 in terms of Battery usage.
A tremendously pleasing Smartphone to use! It looks sharp, has a superb design, feels reassuringly expensive and robust in the hand. The camera experience is an absolute joy. You get fast, smooth and responsive Smartphone with the best battery life available. The phone however lacks Adoptive Storage feature and has a is non-removable battery.
