Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

Score: 9.53/10

Samsung Galaxy S7 is a very powerful device released back in 2016, coming with a comfortable 5.1-inches display, an exceptional Quad-Core processing unit running at 2.2 GHz, and two cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front facing camera. But let's get into more details.

Samsung sells this cellphone in many color options: black, gold, pink, pink gold, silver and white. This device feels much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone like this. Talking about its construction materials, this device is majorly made with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 4) and Aluminum . Being just 0.31 inches thick,the S7 is extremely slim and practical. This phone is quite a compact cellphone, considering it has a 5.1 inches display and it is just 5.61 inches long.

Samsung designed this cellphone with an astonishing 5.1 inches screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K), providing this cellphone with a perfect image quality.

Samsung decided to build this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chip, including an extremely fast Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2.2 gigahertz and a large 4 GB of RAM. This phone comes with a 32 GB excellent internal storage memory and an SD memory slot, enough to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without even thinking about filling the device.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 MP back-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front camera. this phone's back-facing camera has a maximum f/1.7 aperture so it can capture sharp photographs even in low lighting situations. The Samsung Galaxy S7 also films 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 240 frames per second.

This cellphone counts with a large 3000 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours without having to charge it. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts losing capacity, though with this big battery you will probably replace this device before it happens.

This cellphone counts with wi-fi connection (and it can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A high speed connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a bit slower 4G type) and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Samsung Galaxy S7 works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

The S7 also comes with plenty of cool features such as Fingerprint Sensor, Wireless charging capability, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (4.2 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is not cheap at all considering it is sold for 699 dollars, and other similar cellphones are being sold much cheaper than that. No matter whether you want it for work, are looking for a phone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, are a photography fan or want this device for playing games, this cellphone is very appropiate .
