Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung truly is one of the most well-known technology giants in the world, with an empire of market-leading products available from televisions to washing machines. However perhaps one of their signature products has to be their smartphones, which have earned them a huge following of loyal fans across the globe.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 was released, along with the S7 Edge, to a long awaiting audience in 2016. Samsung fans had previously been hugely impressed with the S6 range, and the new flagship models promised to go even further in terms of innovation and craftsmanship.
The S7 didn’t disappoint expectant customers, and furthermore, it firmly cemented Samsungs place in the mobile phone industry as one of the leading brands, so much so that many original customers now refuse to stray from their favoured manufacturer.
Even though the S7 is now over two years old, it is still a fantastic handset and a solid choice for anyone who is looking for a high-end smartphone at a more affordable choice.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Build & Design
The Samsung Galaxy S7 does indeed bear a striking resemblance to the older S6 model, but that’s not laziness on the part of the Samsung design team, but rather a modest reluctance to mess with a winning formula.
Over the years Samsung has only ever made subtle changes to the design of their phones; they appreciate that the combination of sleek curves, a glossy finish and large screen works, so why mess with it?
The S7 is slightly thicker than the S6, but it feels much more comfortable in hold thanks to the slight curve in the edges of the back panel.
A glass and aluminium build, reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, makes for a handset that not only looks great but is also one tough cookie. When you add to that water resistance that not a lot of other affordable handsets deliver, then you have on your hands a very robust smartphone. Don’t get too confident though, we all know how traumatic it can be when you accidentally smash your phone (first world problems, right?), so we at Fonehouse always recommend investing in a good quality case and screen protector.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Screen Quality
The 5.1-inch screen of the S7 is slightly smaller than the Edge, but that's not a bad thing. The phone is extremely comfortable to use with one hand and doesn’t feel too bulky when on the move.
It takes a few pointers from the S6, whose screen was highly praised by critics, sticking with a Super AMOLED display and ignoring any temptation to move over to 4K screen technology, which has been known to be a huge drain on the battery in older handsets.
Overall the viewing experience on the Samsung Galaxy S7 is impressive. Colours are vivid, details are sharp and contrast is handled extremely well. There is also a range of different screen modes on offer so you can choose the colour combo that suits your preferences.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Sound Quality
Samsung's biggest competitor with audio quality has been, and perhaps always will be Apple. They always seem to be hot on the heels of the latest iPhone release when it comes to improving their sound.
The S7 is no different and handles sound extremely well when compared to other high-end releases from around the same time.
The S7, unlike Apple, supports hi-resolution music and this support, combined with all the hard work that Samsung has clearly put into this handset, delivers an audio experience that gives users a sound quality with clear, crisp tones and rich bass.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Features
Gone are the days when we chose a smartphone camera based on its megapixels, we’re far more educated now, and so consequently we weren’t too alarmed when we discovered that the S7 features a 12MP compared to the 16MP setup that we were given on the S6.
The S7 was the first smartphone camera to feature dual-pixel autofocus, a feature that is usually reserved for professional grade cameras. This means that the S7 can capture fast moving objects, and doesn’t fail in low-lighting.
A larger aperture also means that the sensor lets in more light, as does an increase in pixel size, so photographs will be far more defined than with older Samsung handsets, and optical image stabilization keeps details sharp.
A 5MP secondary camera delivers great selfies and is much better than found on other high-end handsets released at the same time as the S7.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Performance
Like the S7 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S7 runs on the incredibly fast Exynos 8890 processor, which gives a fantastic smartphone experience that won’t have you waiting around for your phone to catch up, whether you're streaming your favourite TV show, downloading an app or using multiple features at the same time.
The 3000mAh battery is slightly smaller than the pack found on the S7 Edge, but it’s still a vast improvement upon the previous S6, meaning that you need not worry about running out of power throughout the day. The addition of wireless charging, and Quick Charge compatibility means that getting a reboot when you do run out juice takes very little time indeed.
Fonehouse Samsung Galaxy S7 Opinion
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a fantastic choice for any smartphone shopper who is after an affordable handset with high-end specifications.
It’s a really good looking phone, and while it doesn’t feature the infinity screen that we’re now used to seeing on many Samsung handsets, it still feels ultra premium.
The display is smaller than the S7 Edge, but that's no bad thing as it just means that it’s really comfortable to use, and regardless it still features a Super AMOLED panel for a fantastic viewing experience.
Sound quality is great and we really appreciated the support for hi-resolution music that you don’t find on iPhone handsets.
A fast and responsive processor and large battery complete this stand out handset. And wireless charging is an added luxury that we wouldn’t usually expect on a 2016 handset.
