Every year, the whole world waits for Samsung to launch its latest invention in the mobile phone industry. And so, every year, Samsung fulfills the expectations of its people!
In May 2016, Samsung launched two new additions to their list of high-end smartphones. This included the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Both these phones are remarkable and have rapidly made their way to the top of the list of the best smartphones of 2016.
Though both the phones have striking resemblance to their predecessors – the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge – they differ greatly in terms of their functions and features. The S7 duo has taken the Galaxy series up a notch.
Where They Are Alike
Exteriors: Both the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge are extremely refined, packed within a glass exterior. This feature makes both these phones too fragile to carry without a cover.
Also, your fingerprints can easily cloud the glass exterior when you’re using it, making the screen too misty to see clearly. The covers are definitely a must for these two phones.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Specifications
Both sets use Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, run on the quad-core 2.2GHz processor. As compared with most of the phones in the market, these sets are more efficient. The phones have 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Besides this, they support a microSD card of up to 200GB.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Sound
Both S7 and S7 Edge lack a high-quality sound system. The audio jack is present at the bottom of the phone next to a tiny speaker that produces a feeble sound. This is possibly the biggest drawback of the two smartphones.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Camera
Samsung S7 and S7 Edge have 12MP front camera and 5MP rear camera. Paired with the Gear 360, you can access the photos and videos you have made instantly in a virtual 3D form.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Battery Life
The sets have 3100 mAH & 3600 mAH, Li-ion, non-removable batteries respectively. Galaxy S7 has a battery backup of 9 hours whereas Galaxy S7 Edge has a backup of 10 hours on video streaming.
Both the phones can be unlocked via the fingerprints sensor, ensuring optimal privacy. Besides, they are waterproof and dust-resistant. They are built in such a way that the dust cannot enter the inner circuit.
Also, the phones can stay under water for 30 minutes without sustaining any long-term damage. They’re the only sets after the Samsung Galaxy S5 to have these features.
Where They Differ
The screen size of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is slightly larger than S7. The S7 Edge has a 5.5-inch screen while S7 has a 5.1-inch screen.
Galaxy S7 has a higher screen resolution than S7 Edge. The screen resolution for S7 Edge is 2450 x 1440pixels while for S7 it is 2560 x 1440pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has an extended screen with additional power buttons and a control panel that broadcasts messages.
To Summarize It All
Both the phones are fantastic on the whole. However, the durability is another concern. They are made up of glass, which makes them more fragile than other smartphones. However, both these phones are setting higher standards on beauty and functionality in the range of android phones.
