The. Perfect. Phone.
I’ve read and listened to several reviews of the S7 in the last few days and that’s the general feeling I’ve gotten from them. And now that I finally have my hands on one, I totally agree!
I’ve moved to this phone from the Samsung Note 5, and those of you that know me know I am a huge fan of that platform. I don’t use the S-Pen as much as I should on the phone, but I love the large form factor and feel of the phone.
But the S7, and especially the S7 Edge which I have, is close in size when compared to the Note 5 and the battery is exactly the same size so there will be some adjustment to a smaller phone, but it hopefully will be minimal.
The S7 also has what’s been called the best mobile screen available with its 5.1″ Super AMOLED screen. My favorite feature is the return of the micro-SD card. I’m a DJ and love to have music on my phone as a backup in case my external HDD fails at an event. The S7 now supports micro-SD cards up to 200GB, so my 128GB card should not be a problem!
And the stock camera app is FAST. The camera is a step down in mega-pixels to 12 from 16 but should be adequate. Grabbing moving objects like pets was no issue, with little or no blur. And the low-light capture feature is amazing. I’m excited to test in low-light wedding venues in the coming months.
Throw in a 3000mAH battery on the S7, and a huge 3600mAH battery on the S7 Edge, and you have a pretty close to perfect phone. Oh, did I mention both phones are water resistant?
Then, follow me on Twitter @BeBizzy to let me know what you think or to see some of the awesome photos I will take with the Samsung Galaxy S7. I can’t wait!
