Expect Greater Performance Power from galaxy S7

Greater camera

The better has become even better in S7 and its 12 MP rear camera sensor will offer 95 percent brighter pictures than what the S6 offered. Moreover, there’s also an f1.7 aperture as well as the very quick autofocus feature that make shooting pictures a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Better battery backup in Galaxy S7

There’s a bigger 3,000 mAh battery pack in the Galaxy S7 along with fast adaptive charging as well as fast wireless charging conveniences which make for an overall great backup enhancement as compared against the S6. Now here’s a little in-depth information on the Samsung Galaxy S7:

With each passing model of the Galaxy S series, Samsung is more and more focusing on overall refinement and quality of the new model and the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a great new example of this development. The Galaxy S6 that was launched last year saw a vast leap in many aspects, especially the overall look and feel and built quality. The S6 showed that even Samsung is for classy metal and glass materials than silenced all critics who called Samsung premium phones cheap looking for their plastic built. Samsung churned out a stunning model with the Galaxy S6 and the S7 only walks in the same line, while improving things ever further.

Design and Built quality of Galaxy S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 looks great and classy and looks quite the same as its predecessor in terms of overall design language. It gets a slightly curved rear design that is reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 5, which makes it very comfortable to hold for long periods, unlike the S6. Despite its size, it feels sung in one’s hand which makes it handling on the daily basis really easy and comfy. Then, again, the protruding camera setup is dropped on the S7, which means it won’t rock when placed on a flat surface and you can work on it, even when it’s kept on a table. Small, but very good change indeed.

The Galaxy S7’soverall build quality has improved as well and it does look and feel more premium and smooth than the S6.

Water resistance and storage expandability option

The Galaxy S6 was much praised for its premium design and built quality, but the lack of the microSD slot and water resistance, were not appreciated. Samsung took the customer feedback carefully and included these two important features back on the S7. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a hybrid SIM tray which can support expandable storage up to 200GB. The S7 can also withstand water level of up to 5 feet for 30 minutes. This means the phone will survive if you accidentally drop in your bathtub and allow you to fish it out for sometime while still unhurt; just don’t forget it in the tub though.

All improved camera with Galaxy S7

The already great camera of the S6 is now super impressive in the S7. Samsung has primarily focused on the low-light picture shooting capabilities. The S7 gets a lesser 12 megapixel rear camera down from the 12 MP shooter of the S6, but don’t get fooled by numbers, as the S7’s snapper is much more powerful and refined. The sensor offers brighter and better pictures even in low light conditions, according to Samsung. Along with its f/1.7 aperture and rapid auto focus capability, the camera could be the sole reason for you to buy the Galaxy S7; yes it’s that impressive!

Always awake display

The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with an energy efficient bright and colorful AMOLED display and offers an always-on option to the users, who depend on their mobile handsets for almost everything and needs to be reminded with the help of the notifications. The Always on display shows calendar, time, notifications and even great wallpaper designs. However, this offers only limited options and only reminds you of notifications, as one can’t actually read these. Going ahead, we expect the Galaxy S phones to offer all these on to the lock screen as well without gorging on the battery juice, which will be the real impressive thing. But, for now this is great as well.

Virtual reality and Gaming

Samsung smartphones have been always great for game lovers and the S7 is not different. The new Galaxy S7 is compatible with latest Gear VR headset and also Gear 360 camera. The virtual reality geeks can also create great things on the Galaxy S7 itself.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 also comes with TouchWiz along with a new game hub. This feature allows you to play on your games, even when you get incoming calls. This shows calls and texts as small icons, letting you choose to take or drop the call and continue gaming.
