Samsung Galaxy S7 Review [2017]



We all do it: a hot new smartphone like the Galaxy S8 drops, and we’re in love – until we see the price tag. Then we start thinking, “well, how bad would it be if I got last year’s model instead?” The good news: the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are still outstanding smartphones worthy of a long look, especially once they get discounted following the Galaxy S8 release. The better news: there are other, still-cheaper smartphones out there worth a look as well. The bad news: neither of these…

  1. [CORRECTION] I'm getting reports that you can indeed launch the camera with a home-key double-click on the S8. This did not work on a few demo devices at the media briefing and I couldn't find any setting to enable it, but it's entirely possible I just missed it. Sorry if so!

  2. The S7 remains my daily driver to this day. With the Galaxy Project custom ROM it remains quick and responsive, with excellent battery life and a camera that is still very good indeed. Phone cameras kind if reached a point with the S7 era that future cameras are only proving incremental increases and that if you really want better then buying an actual camera is a far better choice.

  3. I bought an S7 a few weeks ago… The S7 is still a top phone even in mid 2018. Running Android Oreo the performance and spec is still far better than the iPhone 8 and can be bought for half the price of an iPhone 8.

  4. I have straight talk. Trying to get the most for my money. The S7 is much more affordable for looking at a new phone. I have an iPhone SE right now but I want to go back to android. Is the S7 Still worth it?

  5. 2018. And micro USB is still easier to buy than USB – C. I don't see micro USB dying anytime at the rate you hint at, at least in the next 4-5 years. Just saying. So not really the best argument for "future proofing".

  6. I hate my s7 edge whenever i play clash of clans or any games while charging .. it starts overheating and the charging speed decreases.. hate this.
    Never happened on iphone.

  7. Got one from my room mate,he got a note 8 so he gave me his s7 gold version,has a crack screen but doesn't affect anything. Battery is till at 60% after 8 hours of standby,might keep it might not,don'.t want 3 degree burns if the battery is bad but so far it's behaving.
