Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

90.9% Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Sets standards! The Galaxy S7 Edge is certainly not a bundle of groundbreaking innovations, but it fuses state-of-the-art premium technology in its casing and is presently rightly considered as the reference model of its class. However, there are some points of criticism and we would have wished Samsung had been a bit more intrepid in some points.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – One Year Later (review)
Source: Android Guys English
Samsung really has achieved what it wanted to do with this device: a great screen, a solid camera, respectable software and support, a sleek and smart design with features that will keep customers coming back for more. I can still recommend the S7 Edge as a premium device but suspect those that are looking for a new phone will gravitate to the brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+. As for me, I’ll be keeping my eye out for the possibility of a new iteration in the Note series.

A rather nice phone that has the ability to fast charge via wireless, I did not try this, sticking to the perhaps safer micro USB connection. The word ‘Edge’ is taken literally here as the screen has no border at all, so the screen literally goes to the edge.

Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge revisited – Is it still worth it?
Source: Android Authority English
So there you have it for this look back at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge! These phones may have been released early last year, but they definitely don’t feel outdated at all. They’ve aged very well inside and out, and are phones that you will certainly be happy with, not only if you already own one, but if you are considering buying it soon. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were great smartphones when they were launched, and remain really good smartphones one year later.

Samsung Galaxy S7 EDGE Review: Still The Best-Looking Android Around

Samsung has released a new version of the Galaxy S7 EDGE – a 128GB model in the colour scheme “black pearl”, though, as far as we’re aware, there is no tie-in with Pirates of The Caribbean. The handset is now available, in select regions, and, according to Samsung, it radiates “quality” and “luxury”.

A tremendously pleasing smartphone to use. It's been a while since I test-drove something I didn't want to give back, but the Galaxy S7 EDGE fits into that category quite comfortably. It looks sharp, feels reassuringly expensive and robust in the hand, the camera experience is an absolute joy. Performance is what you hope for from a flagship; it's fast, smooth and responsive, while the battery life is amongst the best available. The software is as close to stock Android as Samsung has ever come and as a result is one of the most hassle-free Samsung Galaxy devices I've used to date.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Is New Wine in an Old Bottle
Source: TBreak English
The S7 Edge is a smartphone made by Samsung keeping in mind an Android fan. And when it comes to that, it really does the job. We would recommend it to anyone who’s looking to buy a phone that they can flaunt and perform when required. But it’s also just new wine in an old bottle. But we don’t suggest the S7 Edge for people who have butter fingers, the display is fragile and will crack easily.

The Samsung leads in the style stakes, and gets a leg up in display and longevity. Both devices are evenly matched in terms of cameras, on paper at least, but we'll require a face-off if we're going to make any solid conclusions. The iPhone 7 leads the pack in pure performance, yet we feel the deciding factor will rest with your platform of choice.

Not that I’m shocked. One of Samsung’s shortcomings is that its batteries don’t always hold up extremely well over time when usage is regularly above moderate. I’ve generally found iPhones do a better job, though Apple does have the advantage of optimizing its own operating system and hardware.

In virtually all other areas, however, the Galaxy S7 edge does seem like a fantastic phone; the display is great, the camera tech appears to tick all the right boxes, the processor also sounds promising - and we're loving the inclusion of that clever heat dissipation technology. Once again, Samsung has also knocked the build and design out of the park, while having waterproofing and microSD back is very pleasing indeed.

So, there you have it for this comprehensive look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy S7 Edge! As we have seen throughout this review, the Galaxy Note 7 borrows a lot from the Galaxy S7 Edge, but it is an entirely different phone that offers its own unique experience. Despite how much it has in common with the Galaxy S7 Edge, it does feel the way a Note device should feel, and it certainly is more than just the Galaxy S7 Edge with an S-Pen.

Both of these devices are two really fantastic smartphones in their own right, but what it is really going to come down to is how much you value the Moto Mods, and how easily you can get your hands on one of them. The Galaxy S7 Edge is the easier phone to get right now, with it being available from all major network carriers, and while an unlocked version of the Moto Z will be arriving soon, Verizon is your only option currently.

We doubt any of these tests will make a Note fan get the S7 edge, because if you love the S-Pen, nothing can replace it. We wanted to explore Samsung's flagship camera evolution over the past few devices and see what got better and what not. As it turned out Samsung just made a great camera even greater. The image quality is often on par across all three devices, but the processing algorithm is more sophisticated for brighter and sharper images. While there is an Auto HDR option on all devices, we're pleased to say that the Note7 hardly needs this mode. The dynamic range optimization Samsung has implemented does a great job of brightening up the shadows just when it's needed.

Samsung's always seemed a little confused about what options it wanted to offers shoppers in the phablet space: how large a handset, with or without a curved-edge display, and with or without the Note's S Pen stylus. It remains to be seen if we'll get anything like a Galaxy S7 edge+ (don't hold your breath), but at least with this year's lineup Samsung's simplifying the question: do you want smaller and touch-only, or slightly bigger and the stylus?

Yes, it’ll cost you a premium – around £90 outright and £5-10 a month more on contract – and that can be hard to justify when the S7 carries a lot of the same specification and benefits. But the S7 Edge's unique design is both what causes this price hike and justifies it, and those with the budget for its beauty and the desire for a bigger screen than the S7’s should certainly give it some serious consideration.

When two handsets do so much, so well, it's tricky delivering a balanced comparison. Sure, there will inevitably be areas where one phone outdoes the other, or one exhibits an unfortunate weakness. And as a result, we can end up getting pretty picky about just which measuring sticks we're using to evaluate these smartphones. But you can rest easy knowing that whether you go with the Galaxy S7 edge or the Moto Z Force Droid, you'll be rocking one of the best-equipped phones of 2016.

The conflict becomes even more confusing with the OnePlus 3 wading into the battle of the 2016 Android handsets. The Samsung Galaxy S7 (along with the S7 Edge) sat atop the Android tree for a long time, but it's becoming increasingly crowded down below. You can't deny the hard work that HTC, Huawei and OnePlus have put in and, while we feel that the LG G5 lags a little behind, it really is anyone's game as we march into the second half of the year.

Were this any other year, we'd have an easy time calling this one and giving it to Samsung. But HTC is back, and the 10 is rock-solid. This makes the question of “which?” a rather personal affair. We tend to like the way the HTC 10 handles better, but once you slap on a case, it quickly turns into a win for the slimmer S7 edge. With the displays, however, the S7 edge has the clear... well, edge. While the HTC 10 isn't terrible in this regard, its rival is brighter and better suited for the summer.

We often hear the claim that handsets running stock Android or close-to-stock offer the best battery life but considering the data, this doesn’t appear to be the case. In fact, considering all the battery life reviews we’ve run so far, and it’s clear that Android running a skin can actually be good for the battery. In the case of Samsung, the per-app power management feature in TouchWiz also helps to improve the actual day-to-day battery life without impacting on the overall performance.

Existing Galaxy S6/S6 edge users have no compelling reasons to upgrade, as those phones are still very capable. Those who are not fans of TouchWiz UI may look at the Google Nexus 6P as it offers a clean Android OS along with great overall performance. The Apple iPhone 6s/6s Plus are other alternatives to the S7/S7 edge. It is difficult to pick between the S7 and the 6s series as both excel at different things – if camera is your main concern, the S7 certainly impresses in low light situations over the 6s.

A bigger and more attractive version of the Classic Galaxy S7
Source: Laptop Media English
Aside from the curved display and slightly larger size of the phone, we’re again looking at the same stylish construction, including a metal frame and glass back panel we saw in the classic version. Both the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge feature a waterproof certificate and microSD memory card slot (up to 200GB) which weren’t present in last year’s Samsung flagships. The phones have seen some improvement in the hardware front as they now boast an even more powerful SoC – Exynos 8890. The mobile chip achieved record-breaking results in our benchmark tests – not only does it not cause any overheating issues, but the external temperatures we measured on the back of the phones are some of the lowest we’ve ever recorded. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has a 12MP camera and even though the pixel count is lower, it still manages to take very detailed photos. You can check out our camera comparison between the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6 for more detailed information on the matter. Galaxy S7 has a 3600 mAh battery and managed to achieve incredibly high results in our battery tests, securing one of the top spots in our rankings list. Perhaps the biggest drawback of the phone is that the screen uses PWM to regulate the brightness, which may cause eye fatigue after usage for extended periods of time.

90% Samsung has refined the dual edge S7 into the best phone money can buy
Source: PC Advisor English
The Galaxy S7 edge is no longer the semi-gimmick it was before. Although some of the main features are things from the Galaxy S5 – Micro-SD and waterproofing – Samsung has given fans what they want. It's now a refined, sophisticated and highly desirable piece of technology. The battery isn't removable but the phone lasts longer than before and has seriously powerful specs under the hood. It has almost everything you could want from a phone even though the IR blaster is gone. We're also very impressed with the new camera and unless the screen is too big for you (despite some software features to help out) we think it's worth getting the S7 edge for the extra £70 with its gorgeous looks and extra functionality. Right now, this is the best smartphone money can buy.

For me, I prefer the S7 Edge because it’s a much more refined smartphone experience, whereas the G5 feels like a first-generation product… and in a lot of ways it is. Surely, LG will have it all figured out in the next version, but if you feel really compelled by the G5’s modularity, then give the phone a shot. If you’d rather play it safe, the S7 or S7 Edge are the safest bet money can buy.

There is a nearly $100 price difference between the two in favor of the more affordable LG G5.

If price is not a concern, though, at $800, the S7 edge is definitely the better-rounded phone in most aspects: with a better display, an actually useful Always-on feature, better battery life, and impressively fast camera.

Battery life is also outstanding. In our test, streaming video over Wi-Fi with an absolute brightness measured at 25 lux in a dark room (the same level we set for all phones we battery-test), it only dropped 9 percent per hour. For some perspective, the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ (our top scores from 2015) all dropped 13 percent per hour under the exact same conditions.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Review

Samsung is one of the few companies that has pulled off a dramatic turnaround in a short period of time. Most companies such as HTC, Nokia etc rested on their laurels and did what comes naturally to them. When the Galaxy S5 disappointed in terms of user experience and sales, Samsung went back to the drawing board and started from scratch. The Project Zero Galaxy S6/S6 edge was a result of that turnaround. The S6 lineup wasn’t perfect but it was a difference of day and night between them and the previous gen S5. Samsung had the right ingredients at the time; the only issue was that they needed to know what and how much quantity of it was needed to create the perfect formula.

It’s only logical for us to tell you that this is the best Galaxy ever, and we’d be right if we just left it in that simple conclusion. That wouldn’t be doing this phone any justice though.

It’s as if the company actually decided to live up to all the marketing hype, and has finally delivered a very well-rounded and thoughtful experience for its new flagship.

You're eyeing up the Samsung Galaxy S7, but you find its looks too pedestrian? We don't necessarily agree, but let's say for the sake of argument that you're right. No worries, Samsung's got you covered - meet the Galaxy S7 edge.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Galaxy S6 Edge head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
With the S7 Edge Samsung has improved on what was already a winning formula, proving that the brave design choices first seen in last year's flagship were just. On paper the 2016 model wins on nearly all counts, but the margins are minimal. Twelve months on and the S6 Edge can still compete with the best of them.

If you have the budget, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the best that Android can offer at the moment. However, there's still room for improvement and Samsung needs to get more apps for its Edge displays as soon as possible.

The Galaxy S7 Edge offers an exceptional display, great performance, stellar camera, beautiful design (even if it is a little uncomfortable to hold), and good battery life. Things like water resistance, wireless charging, microSD card slot, and Fast Charging are cherries on top. TouchWiz can still feel bloated at times, but this is undoubtedly the best Galaxy phone Samsung has ever made. Living on the edge never felt so good.

For all those who fell in love with the S6 Edge, you will undoubtedly fall for the S7 Edge's curved appeal once more. That said, it's not an essential upgrade - there's no monumental leap here. The edgy flagship is evolutionary rather than revolutionary. But with its dazzling display, unique curved design, and enduring battery life, it is our hope that the Samsung Galaxy Edge S7 wins over a whole new set of fans.

If you’re already on the S6 train, then the S7 Edge doesn’t bring enough ‘new’ to the table to warrant an early upgrade. It packs a user experience that’s, for the most part, the same as last year’s phones and hardware that isn’t notably more capable in everyday use (even if it is empirically better).

Even though Samsung’s UI has made some improvements, it’s still far from perfect. It’s a lot less intrusive and if you don’t like many of the features you can simply turn them off but Samsung still packs a lot of crapware and redundant applications into their phones. For basically every google application, there’s a Samsung equivalent of that same app so on the S7 Edge you have two email apps, two web browsers, and two voice assistants with google now and s voice, and depending on which carrier you’re on you may be dealing with even more redundant apps or bloatware.

The Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+ are impressive showcases of Samsung's technological proficiency, displaying quality design and containing some of the best mobile hardware money can buy in 2016. Without question, both devices have the style and the guts to defend Samsung's enviable smartphone market share for another year.

If the best rival is the one you can learn from, has Samsung learnt the wrong trick? Or did the Project Zero redesign got everyone there too excited to think rationally? Probably a bit of both. The company delivered these beautiful Galaxy S6 smartphones but they missed a few user-favorite features, which now make a comeback on the next model. We've seen Apple do exactly this in recent years. First we get the new cool design, then we get the proper hardware upgrades a generation later.

Samsung’s vanity phone is definitely all grown up. It’s bigger, because it’s the best form factor for those curved-edges, and it features those flagship bells and whistles you won’t get from a Nexus device. It’s absolutely the kind of phone I could see myself wielding for more than two years, and it’s nice to see Samsung thinking of its devices as long-term mainstays rather than disposable plastic devices. If you’re due for an upgrade and you want the best Android phone with the nicest body, the Galaxy S7 Edge is it.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Galaxy S7
Source: Phone Arena English
This year, there is more of a difference between the S7 and S7 Edge: the S7 Edge is larger. But is this enough of a reason for both phones to exist? Samsung has done a commendable job squeezing the 5.5” display of the S7 Edge in a very compact body for that screen size. With the richer Edge UX functionality, slightly better battery life, and overall more modern form factor, we still feel that Samsung could have easily just released the S7 Edge and called it a day. It’s the better phone all around.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge – first impressions
Source: Androidbeat English
The Galaxy S7 edge is expensive, £600 or so in the UK, definitely premium, but it’s still cheaper than most iPhones and outguns them in almost every department. If you can afford it – hey, pick it up on contract, it’s future proof – and want Android and if you don’t have to have a Nexus then this is the smartphone of the year. So far, at least!

Overall I’ve been impressed with the Galaxy S7 Edge. It’s an expensive high-end phone, with the 32GB model costing around $780 off-contract (around the same price as a 64 GB iPhone 6s), but in my eyes the improvements to the hardware are worth it. This is a truly premium, well-built handset, and you won’t regret buying it.

Now is the time for us to say which of these two phones is better than the other, but that's tricky, to say the least, knowing that both have a lot to stand their grounds with. The shiny new Galaxy S7 edge won us over with its more compact dimensions, unusual design, and camera that performs rather good in low-light situations. Plus, we do appreciate the benefits of having expandable storage and the peace of mind, knowing that the handset is water-resistant. If you're the kind of person that lives and breathes smartphones, that likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, that enjoys knowing that the handset in their pocket is packed to the brim with features, then the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is the phone you should take a look at.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5

With all of this in mind, let's have a look at the prices. At $799 unlocked, the Galaxy S7 edge is certainly one expensive smartphone. Currently, the Galaxy Note 5 can be had for $600 unlocked, and considering this, the 5.7-incher beats the Galaxy S7 edge in terms of value for money. With the S-Pen's presence, it offers more functionality, and it doesn't fall short of the S7 edge in terms of hardware and camera features. Of course, if you still want Samsung's latest and greatest, there are carrier offers and upgrade plans to consider, so scoring a deal on it isn't impossible by any means.

The Galaxy S7 Edge is Samsung’s best phone yet, and takes the crown as the phone to beat for 2016 thus far. But more than that, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge isn’t just an improvement, it’s also a stand out product that shows Samsung is listening, and listening well.

If money is simply no object and you want a phone that looks absolutely stunning, the Galaxy S7 Edge is the phone to choose. It’s the culmination of Samsung’s impressive rise in the design stakes and it brings back a lot of features that were annoyingly missed out of the S6 and S6 Edge. The 5.5-inch display is sharp, if a tad too reflective, and the camera’s improved low-light performance and best in the business autofocus puts it right at the top of the pile. It’s a combination of high-end components that all fit together perfectly and unlike the S6, there’s little by way of compromise here.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge -- the new phones to beat
Source: Computerworld.com English
Over the past couple of years, Android phones have been gaining in power and sophistication, and the Samsung S7 series is pretty much the state of the art. The physical package is right: top-end build quality, waterproofing, switches in the right place, long battery life, expandability, a knock-out screen and plenty of processing power. The software is right: Smartly implemented UI enhancements and Android's increasingly seamless melding of device and cloud.

Samsung gets it right the second time around. The Galaxy S7 Edge ($792; 32GB) is a striking standout of a smartphone, bringing back several fan-favorite features that were lost in last year's successful S6 Edge. While we also like the smaller Galaxy S7, the Edge manages a bigger battery and Samsung's signature curved glass in a package that's not much larger. As I tested the two phones together, I found that they benchmarked the same and have pretty much identical camera performance.

It pretty much leaves us with lust again, not an emotion to be underestimated but that, if I'm honest, I'd prefer to see the Galaxy S7 edge not have to rely on quite so much. Samsung has made a fantastic phone, but there are only really style reasons to opt for this over the Galaxy S7. Not the worst reason in the world, but I can't help but feel like the potential of the Galaxy S7 edge is for so much more.

Is the Edge still a luxury? At around £150 more than the standard Samsung Galaxy S7 on contract, it’s certainly not for frugal folk. However if you have the cash and want the best-looking version of our favourite phone, then don’t hesitate to grab this Galaxy. Signing up for a new handset should be an indulgence. You’re going to have to spend two years staring at the thing, after all. When you think about it like that, why not plump for the smartphone that guarantees you love at first sight?

Whether you value the premium glass and aluminium chassis, the high-end specs, or the outstanding camera. This smartphone has it all. Expandable storage and waterproofing, back from the S5, are also big bonuses, and all of this shows that Samsung has really listened to customer complaints about the S6 (which is really quite refreshing). It’s not perfect - the casing is a fingerprint magnet and TouchWiz still isn’t perfect. But the pros far outweigh the cons.

So there you have it: the S7 Edge differs from the standard Galaxy S7 with its larger, dual-edge screen, higher-capacity battery and extra colour option. It sounds great, but the cheaper price and smaller dimensions of the standard Samsung Galaxy S7 may make the Edge your second-best.

LG G5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
Source: Gadgetguy English
We think the two phones have room to cohabitate. The LG G5 holds some of the same promise that Google's Project Ara does. This, however, depends on LG and its partners actually producing interesting add-ons. Even without that the phone is great on its own, its seamless metal shell is quite impressive in person. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is more self-sufficient. Sure, some snap-on accessories are available, but this is good ol' Samsung - the S7 has everything and the kitchen sink (and even the sink has more features than the competition). If you're looking for low-light photography, the S7 edge is the phone for you.

The new S7’s are designed to keep cool with an innovative new ‘heat pipe’, which is a water filled copper pipe that runs next to the processor, and draws heat away by vaporising the water, which then moves to the centre and then down the pipe, where it condenses back to liquid again in a continuous loop. Clever stuff.

It will become more clear when we get a chance to test the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge more fully for an in-depth review, but it definitely feels like a step up from the last model. The camera is better in low light – one of the most important aspects for smartphone photography considering they get whipped out at parties, etc. And the additional software features seem to be useful rather than tacked on.

The Galaxy S7 is a remarkable smartphone. The Galaxy S6 pretty much lead the Android market for all of 2015, and the Galaxy S7 is giving them a good chance to do the same in 2017.

Comment

Model: As the latest flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge certainly looks the part and feels extremely premium. The design concept is similar to the S6's with rounded edges, but the back glass panel is now curved, which makes it slightly easier to pick the device up. There are four colors to choose from; black, white, gold and silver. The overall finish still makes the device a fingerprint magnet, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge makes up for it with good water resistance up to the 1.5 m for 30 minutes. Display on the device is an amazing 5.5 inch Super AMOLED panel protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Color saturation and clarity seem to get better with ever flagship release and the curved sides add a borderless feel.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor, 4 GB of RAM, an Adreno 530 or Mali-T880 MP12 GPU and 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a 12 MP rear camera. Actually the sensor profits from the lower MP count, since the larger pixel size makes for better low light photography. A non-removable lithium ion battery rated at 3600 mAh provides the device with energy.
