Samsung Galaxy S7 is no doubt one of the best phones in the Galaxy S series. This phone is big but not bulky. It has a mix of specs that you would expect from a smartphone of this caliber. This phone is not very different from the Galaxy S6. Samsung kept almost everything that worked well last time and improved a lot of things. The Galaxy S7 is just the same size as IPhone 6s and the Galaxy S6. However, it is a little heavier than both. It’s more comfortable to hold the S7 in the hands than the S6. It also has a less “plasticky” feel. This phone borrows from both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Specifications Review
Samsung decided to stick to the 5.1 inch AMOLED display. The screen has a resolution of 2560×1440. It is ridiculously dense. You will always get excellent, crystal clear images from this screen. It provides deep blacks and crisp colors.
It is excellent even when you are using your phone outdoors in the sunlight. You will definitely be impressed to see a screen that is this big with a very high screen resolution. Although it’s a large phone, it is absolutely pocketable. You can view time without waking up the whole screen. This feature helps to save battery.
The microSD card slot returns
There was not space for a microSD card in Galaxy S6. This feature has been brought back in the Galaxy S7. This will allow you to have more space if you need more than the 32GB on board storage. In fact, its only 16 GB of the 32GB internal space that is available to the user.
Excellent fingerprint experience
The fingerprint sensor has been well tucked inside S7’s home button. This sensor supports all the fingerprint features that have been baked into Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This fingerprint sensor is excellent. Although your phone will be easy to unlock, it is very secure.
Samsung Galaxy S7 camera
The back camera has a 12MP sensor. The front camera is 5MP. Don’t be fooled by the lower MP pixel ratings of these cameras. They quality of images captured by these cameras is impressive.
These cameras are much better than cameras in the S6 and in other phones with higher megapixel ratings. These cameras are will impress you even in low light conditions. The camera app is great. It is feature-rich but not overwhelming. There are many cool things that you can play with as you poke around to find things.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a decent battery life. The 3000mAh battery is not a very big improvement from the Galaxy S6’s 2550mAh battery. However, power usage improvements and its Snapdragon 820 processor makes it possible to use this smartphone for a significantly longer time than you would have used the Galaxy S6. You can use your phone for 12 to 15 hours (moderately) without needing a charger. Qualcomm’s Quick-Charge 2.0 technology makes it possible to get 45 percent in 30 minutes. You might not be blown away by its battery life buy you have to admit that it is much better than what you get with the Samsung Galaxy S6.
