I’ll get to the overall design shortly, but the overwhelming similarity between the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is the fact both have curved ‘Edge’ displays.Yes the Galaxy Note 7 has a larger panel as well as Gorilla Glass 5 which has greater resistance to cracks from falls. The Galaxy S7 Edge has a slightly higher pixels per inch count, but that won’t be key at this level – both will blow users away.
The beauty of what we’ve engineered is to give you the slimmest feel in your hand without compromising the big screen size. And the elegantly curved front and back fit in your palm just right. It’s as beautiful to look at, as it is to use.Crafted from the best materials available, the slick design and AMOLED screen make this phone very easy on the eye. Good looks haven’t come at the expense of durability – the Gorilla glass build ensures resistance from dust and water.
One of the things that struck me during testing was just how many of the features on the Galaxy S7 Edge‘s camera interface were similar to the iPhone’s.I’m not getting drawn into the argument of which came first, as both brands can lay claim to doing things a certain way, but there are a lot of similarities between the two. Samsung is certainly leaning towards a simpler camera interface, where Apple is packing in more settings – and the two are meeting somewhere in the middle.
The S7 Edge‘s major unique feature is the edge, of course. The edge is Samsung’s most notable, and most useful, addition to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow here.All that software functionality just adds to Samsung’s bloatware load, alas. US carriers only sell a 32GB version of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and 9.23GB on our Verizon model were taken up by Google’s OS, Samsung’s software, and more than a dozen preloaded Verizon and Amazon apps you can’t move or delete.
This is the most efficient Samsung smartphone battery ever, allowing you to get the most from your phone whenever you need it. Love to store lots of photos, music and video?
