Samsung Galaxy S7 review: A refinement act

11 March, 2016
Close your eyes and picture the Samsung Galaxy S6, but the way you wanted it to be, not the way it came out. Now open them and look at the Galaxy S7. Better? Let’s see.

    I'm using a Samsung galaxy s5 mini and this sounds like a good and cheap upgrade

      I've had an S7 for 6 years or so and it still works fine - battery lasts a day + a night. Not many apps installed - mostly use phone/text/email, camera for photos and web browser.

        "The FM radio is perhaps gone for good, the assumption apparently being that the jury has ruled in favor of streaming over the internet."

        Here in 2022, FM Radio is far from dead. If anything, people want it even more than before considering that there are still A LOT of places with little to no internet connection. Got to give a serious thumbs up to LG for never throwing such a useful feature away from their flagship phones.

          this phone very good for a good amount of time

            My S7 has been a great phone with no issues. I am having to say good by because it will soon be incompatible with my companies Outlook Mail service being managed by Microsoft. If you do not have the mail restriction and need an inexpensive bullet proof phone the S7 is it.

The battery those not last at all. When the battery is 100% within the next two hours it would have run down to 1%. And at 1% it will spend up to 15 minutes. If it can be improved, that the remaining numbers will last like 1% the Phone will stay up to 3 days Without changing. Michael Begusa.

                So im doing a glass repair front & back of my Samsung Galaxy7 SM-G930F and im buying the glass frame online but i need to know, are all Samsung Galaxy7 SM-G930, SM-G930F, SM-G930A & Vs the same size?

                  Latest update removes ability to designate ringtones for specific contacts. Amazingly ill-advised move [language softened and upgraded to meet posting rules] by Samsung. Taking options away may be viewed as a method of encouraging purchase of new phone by corporation. If that is true, it won't encourage buying another Samsung. Please return this feature in next update!

                    Anyone else had issues with the "Pink line" on their new phone? Has a fix really been found even a repair? Thanks

                                    Does NOT support MHL. Had to return it, s8 looks having the same "feature".

                                    GSMArena should have MHL yes/no in the list and in phone finder

                                      Few big disadvantages not mentioned in the review, which I find important:
                                      - poor accidental touch detection leading to random touches at the sides;
                                      - slippery grip making the phone difficult to use with one hand.
