In 2015, Smartphone aficionados were excited at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 series, a powerhouse of modern and futuristic smartphones. However, when Samsung officially took the wraps off the widely anticipated Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy S7 Smartphones, its engineering and design teams proved to the world that they have undoubtedly produced the perfect Smartphone. And they just might have.
At first glance, the Galaxy S7 edge bears a striking resemblance with its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 edge.
The similarity is an attempt to maintain the distinctive Galaxy design, which is a fusion of metal and glass. The beautiful and stylish S7 edge design has a subtle space-age feel, and is the perfect companion for the ‘socially mobile’ – a perfect work of art.
Samsung has a reputation for thrilling customers with new, exciting and innovative features. This knack for delivering top-notch, never-before-seen-in-a-
The Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch display screen, while the Galaxy S7 edge has a 5.5-inch screen. They both feature Super AMOLED screen, allowing for clearer videos and images with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD). The devices are imbued with an ingenious Always-on feature, which gives access to certain information on the screen while the Smartphone isn’t completely turned on. Users no longer have to flick the device on to check for the time or take a quick glance at the notifications as a portion of the device is always on. Could this be a battery nightmare? Not at all, as this feature takes up only one percent of the battery every hour. There is a proximity sensor with its only function being to shut the display off when the phone is in your pocket and to switch it off at night too. Sounds interesting, right?
Water and Dust Resistant
A distinct, unique feature of the S7 series is the fact that they are completely dust and water- proof. Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge both carry a resistance rating of IP68, meaning that the smartphones can survive being submerged in water for 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5 metres. The S7’s waterproofing includes sealed ports; there are no fussy port covers over the USB ports or headphone jacks. The feeling of not having to worry about your Smartphone getting wet in the rain or that accidental drop into a bathtub is always reassuring.
No more power packs
Another interesting feature that will definitely appeal to users is the battery capacity. Get ready to say goodbye to the mobile chargers and power packs. Knowing that your device can be on all day without searching for a charging point is a big deal and the Galaxy S7 edge and S7 come fortified with 3,600mAh and 3,000mAh batteries, respectively.
This means users can watch or stream their favourite videos non-stop for 10 hours without having to hook up to a charger. Also, with the wireless charging feature the phones are built with, users can say goodbye to uncomfortable positions while charging a phone with a low battery power.
