A seemingly iterative update to an already great phone might seem a bit dull. Can a few alterations here and there really make that much of a difference?
In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S7, it’s a resounding yes. 2015’s Galaxy S6 was ace, but the latest flagship from the Korean company is even better.
It looks sleeker than the iPhone 6S, has a better camera than the Nexus 6P and boasts a screen that leaves all the competition in the dust. Below are a few top features:
You can’t live without water or your smartphone, which is why the Galaxy S7 has a certified water-resistant rating. It repels spills, splashes and even dunks1 without a bulky protective case.
Running out of memory shouldn’t be a thing. So if 32GB2 isn’t already enough, you can add an additional 200GB with a microSD card.3 No clouds, no hard drives.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge feature big screens in incredibly slim designs that fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. We’ve perfected the S7 edge’s curved screen, so all you need to do is swipe for instant updates. Easy.
Never miss a shot—and make sure it’s good and bright. The Galaxy S7 is the first smartphone with dual-pixel technology, so it captures better photos in low-light environments and focuses faster than the blink of an eye. And with Quick Camera, all you need to do is double-tap the home button and start shooting.
Fast wireless charging
Stop waiting for your phone to charge. With fast wireless charging4, the Galaxy S7 powers up from 0 to 100% in no time at all. And with our biggest battery5, it gives you the power to keep going.
The latest Android OS
Things just got sweeter. The Galaxy S7 is powered by the latest Android Marshmallow OS. That means less battery drain from apps you don’t use, and new features like Now on Tap—the genius technology that anticipates your next move.
The first mobile payment that’s accepted almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card.6 It’s simple, secure and works in more places than any other mobile payment service.
It’s a Galaxy! Your phone should give you freedom to do more. That’s why we created the Galaxy—a world of connected products and experiences. Paired with the Gear VR headset (sold separately), your phone makes it possible to explore new worlds with Samsung Milk VR. And that’s just the beginning.
