March of every year is the time when the waiting game of millions of Samsung fans around the world gets over. This is the time for business and meeting the expectations of these faithful fans. March is when Samsung usually releases its flagship device. This year it will be no different and the world will witness the advent of Samsung’s greatest device yet, The Samsung Galaxy S7.
For years, Samsung’s Galaxy S series has been trying to put Apple’s iPhone to shame in a bid to regain Samsung’s foothold as the most valuable smartphone company in the world. It hasn’t happened yet but with the specifications the Galaxy S7 has to offer, things could start to get messy again.
Starting off with its display, the S7 shelters the well known Super AMOLED capacitive 5.1 inches touchscreen with 577ppi pixel density for maximum detail. The CPU is a monster with a Quad-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 + quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 and 4 GB of RAM that will ensure everything flies on the device. The S7 comprises of two variants. A 32 GB storage version and another with 64 GB but with the option to easily expand it upto 200 GB through the SD card slot, buying the 64 GB version would make no sense.
The Galaxy S7 houses one of the best ever cameras ever to be on a smartphone. Apple would surely disagree to that but with features that include 12 dual pixels, f/1.7 aperture and phase detection, it is surely up there with the very best. The secondary camera boosts a 5 megapixel lens with the same aperture size which should work well enough for a 5.1 inches touchscreen.
The build of the S7 features an improved version of the Corning Gorilla Glass and weighs in at 152g with a thickness of 7.9mm. Maybe the thickness and non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery will aggrieve some fans as the S7 is a full 1.1 mm thicker than its predecessor but its looks should probably calm those nerves down.
In our opinion, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a beast when it comes to performance. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer anything new or revolutionary like Apple’s brand new concept of the 3D Touch in the iPhone 6S. It’s more of an upgrade to the Galaxy S6 without anything particularly new or intuitive. Still, it is Samsung’s flagship and that is a significant statement in itself! Going for it won’t be a bad idea at all if you have the big bucks.
