Top 5 Features of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge


Samsung has recently announced its newest Galaxy smartphone — the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. And with it comes the best tech features Samsung has to offer to the public to enjoy. There’s no major difference between two, aside from the battery capacity and screen size, so we’re putting them side by side here.  Here are 5 top features for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

IP68 certified


IP (or “Ingress Protection”) certification is a major label for devices who claim to be built tough against dirt and water. With the current Samsung flagship, we get the numbers of 6 and 8, which basically means it’s dust tight and water-resistant. You can use the smartphone up to 5 feet underwater for as long as 30 minutes. Perfect for playing, not just around but, in the pool or near the beach since you don’t have to worry about sand getting in your phone as well.

Dual-pixel sensor, f/1.7 aperture


As expected, Samsung S7 sports a better camera than the S6. Aside from optical image stabilization, Samsung threw in a brighter f/1.7 lens and the first dual-pixel sensor on a mobile device. With this, the S7 will be able to focus on the subject faster. Also, the bigger f/1.7 aperture better low-light performance and a bit of bokeh.


Always on display


The always on display feature is something similar to Motorola’s active display. What’s great about this is the use of the AMOLED display for a worry-free battery consumption of the said feature. Here you’ll be able to use your S7 and S7 Edge as a desk clock, or something that just shows the time, date plus other important notifications.

Bigger battery


The batteries got an upgrade with the S7 and S7 Edge. With the S7, we have a large 3000mAh battery from the 2550mAh of the S6, while the S7 Edge gets a 3500mAh cell. While an increase in the number is nice, having a removable battery is a feature that most is scrapping now. Good thing Samsung’s quick charging is present here, both wired and wireless.

Top of the line chipset


Being a flagship means you get only the best. With its Exynos 8890 Octa or Snapdragon 820, there’s no stopping the S7s from getting to the top of the charts game. Of course, real life performance is as convincing as those digits from benchmarks and basically every game on the Play Store is playable and should run smooth and hiccup-free.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are set to be released in the Philippines on March 19 for Php34,990 and Php39,990, respectively.

    P35k for the s7 32gb version? That’s cheap for a launching price and more affordable than highphone 6s 16gig. I’m sold samsung.

    Too bad the S7 / Edge doesn’t implement Marshmallow’s Unified Storage. This is a Dick move by SAMSUNG. I hope hope nerd from XDA Developers can develop a solution to this

      1. Bagong release lang ang s7 edge kaya may room for software updates.

      2. Hindi lahat ng taong bumibili ay may pakialam sa unified storage

      3. Sobrang laki na ng internal storage na 32gb para sa ordinary apps kaya ang main function ng sd card ay storage para sa hi resolution pictures at 4k videos.

      Dami mong reklamo sa device na hindi mo pa nahahawakan. Wag ka masyado magpakanerd sa technology dahil naman geeks ang target market ng galaxy s7.
