Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Review

Score: 9.34/10

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is a top-level phone launched back in the year 2016, provisioned with a great Quad-Core processor speeding at 2.2 GHz, a large 5.5 inches display, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. That's all? No, it's just the starting point of a detailed review.

Samsung ships this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chip, packing a high performance Quad-Core processor speeding at 2200 megahertz and a large 4 GB RAM. This phone comes with a 32 GB amazing internal storage memory and a slot for SD memory cards, more than enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without thinking about running out of space.

This cellphone body design is a mix of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 4) and Aluminum . Samsung is offering this phone in a nice range of color variations, black, black pearl, coral blue, gold, pink gold, silver and white. Being just 0.3" thick,the S7 edge is extremely thin and good-looking. The S7 edge just has 5.94 inches long, but it manages to hold a 5.5" screen. This cellphone is much lighter than what one would think about a device this size.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera. Its back facing camera has a maximum 1.7 aperture so it can shoot clear photos even in poor lighting situations. It also captures videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 240 fps (8 times slower than regular videos).

Samsung packed this cellphone with an amazing 5.5-inches display, and a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, providing this phone with a perfect graphic quality.

This phone includes wi-fi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G , the fastest connectivity and fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA technologies. This device works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

The S7 edge also features a great numbre of interesting characteristics as Fingerprint ID, Wireless charging capability, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (4.2 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone comes with a big 3600 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery providing this cellphone an extremely long battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it begins to last shorter, while with this big battery you will probably replace this phone before it becomes a real problem.

The S7 edge is priced around 799 dollars, which is not cheap for comparing with similar cellphones. This cellphone is probably the correct option it doesn't matter whether you are looking for a cellphone for work, are looking for a social cellphone, will use it as a gamer cellphone or you love taking photos.
